          Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

          As far as my beauty routine goes, I have found the perfect product for everything with the exception of a good moisturizer. I was previously using Clinique's moisturizing gel, but I found it left me with the same combination skin problems I've always had-- dry around the eyes and greasy in the t-zone. I've only been using this product for about a week now and maybe that's not long enough to say, but I think my face is actually greasier with this lotion. I don't like how it goes on and I don't think it smells very good either. I'll give it a few more weeks because I do love Mario Badescu products, but if you're like me and find yourself blotting your forehead with post-it notes at your desk throughout the day... this won't change things.

            When I bought this, I was very excited. I do not have sensitive skin but this broke me out. I tried it 4 different times hoping that it was not the culprit, but it was. Sad day.

              I wash my face with a gentle cleanser, apply a light layer of toner, then apply a small amount over my face and neck. I've been using it a couple of days and so far I am happy with the results.

                    A:

                    Yes, you can. You can apply the mask after cleansing, wait 15-20 minutes and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with a toner and a moisturizer, such as Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin. A great toner option is our Special Cucumber Lotion. http://www.ulta.com/special-cucumber-lotion?productId=xlsImpprod6200771

                  I use the Drying Lotion for breakouts that have already surfaced but I also want a moisturizer that would prevent future breakouts that possibly haven't formed or surfaced yet. Would this be a good moisturizer for that purpose?

                    Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin is designed specially for oily skin. You may also want to consider a skin care regimen geared towards oily/acne prone skin. Our Acne Starter Kit is our daily regimen collection designed to help oily/acne prone skin get and stay clear.

                    A:

                    Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin does provide very light hydration but it will not over dry your skin. Another great option for oily skin is A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer (Item #: 2209844). It delivers light hydration with exfoliating properties to improve radiance and texture.
