    So impressed with this product! I have very dry skin, and this product moisturizes well without feeling greasy and also leaves a refreshing feeling. My skin has started to feel much smoother after using this and I know longer have dry patches.

        My skin tends to be drier when I'm traveling, so I keep this in my beauty GO bag to ensure that I have sufficient moisture after shaving my face. I don't use it daily, bc of my combo skin, but I know it works wonders for my friends with super dry skin.

          So I'm 27 and have oily skin but struggle with dry spots especially in winter along with occasional breakouts. So we're talking flaky looking skin on the nose and forehead with a nice oil sheen over it by the end of the day. I LOVE this product. I put this over my moisturizer and then do my makeup and I could tell a difference day 1! No more dry spots and it has done wonders to control my oil production. I also haven't had any breakouts since using it so if you're thinking about trying this--do it! I only wish it were paraben free.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum:

          I have such a weird combination of dry and oily skin that it's almost impossible to keep my skin hydrated and healthy, I started using this around two months ago and I LOVE it! It's been a life saver, I would recommend this to anyone that has troublesome skin.

              I normally have very oily skin that breaks out often. During he winter, indoor heating dries my face out, but finding a better winter moisturizer was not easy. I tried TONS of options, many worked but ALSO caused my skin to breakout horribly. I thought I had to choose between dehydrated skin or zits!!! Then I found this - amazing! I love it! I put about 7-8 drops on my face and beck prior to an oil free moisturizer and it does wonders. My face does not get dried out now from the furnace. My face stays hydrated but ALSO clear of breakouts. Exactly what I needed!!!!
