      Comments about Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum:

      I have been using this product for about 6 months and I just love it. It isn't sticky, absorbs quickly, and leaves you looking dewy. My skin can be very dry and I find this to be a fantastic added layer of moisture below my regular moisturizer (also a Mario brand). When my skin isn't super dry, its perfect alone.

      Love it. Wish more came in the bottle but I am officially hooked.

          I use this product at night after my moisturizer and I love how soothing this product feels on my skin. It does feel a little tacky as its drying, but I love how my skin looks and feels in the morning after using this. I also tried mixing this with my primer before makeup and I loved how this helped smooth my pores and gave me a "glow from within" look. My skin is very acne prone and I'm happy to say this hasn't caused any bad reactions to my skin.

            I have never been able to control my super dry skin and this is the first product I've used that has helped. This has worked miracles for me. Put it on after your moisturizer and it locks it all in. I can finally wear makeup without having it cling to ugly dry patches. I've used this for a week and I've had countless compliments on how great my skin looks. All you dry girls need this stuff!

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum:

                  Oh, how I love this serum! I'll be up-front with you: my skin is impossibly strange. It's oily, congested, sensitive, rosace-prone, and photosensitive. In short, finding an appropriate moisturizer is a living nightmare for me. Most creamy formulations clog my pores, anything with oil in its ingredients list is a no-no, and most chemicals are irritating. Enter the Hero of our story: MB's Hydrating Herbal Serum! It hydrates without making my skin oily, and causes no reaction at all. I use it morning and evening after my toner and my skin is the happiest it's been in years. Though not inexpensive, one tube of this product lasts me a few months; I consider it a worthy investment.

                  This is nice to layer under sunscreen if you feel dried out from the sun. I would recommend this does one who doesn't like lotion.

                      Herbal Hydrating Serum may be used around the eye area, but not on the eye lid. Avoid direct contact with your eye.

                      A:

                      Yes, depending on your skin type you can use the Herbal Hydrating Serum in place of a moisturizer. For added hydration for drier skin types, you can apply 2-3 drops on top of your daily moisturizer.
