      Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

      I don't want to jump the gun on giving this a rave review because I've only had for a little over a week. All throughout my teen years I had little to no acne. I would get one really bad one right before my period but aside from that I had amazing skin, soft, moisturized, clear complexion. Well sometime last winter my skin started to rebel. I had the beginnings of what looked to be cystic acne. I can't say for certain though. I have VERY sensitive skin so I had to look all over to find what would work for me, it took me 8 months. Through trial and error I ended up with a routine for about 6 or so months of washing my face with Herbalism from Lush, toning it with Thayer's alcohol free witch hazel and moisturizing it with the Trader Joe's Antioxidant moisturizer. But once again they eventually stopped working and my skin was having a proper freakout. I felt awful about myself, I didn't want to go out, I couldn't put makeup on it because it made it even more visible. The entire area around my mouth was broken out in blackheads and pustules. I would wakeup everyday with tiny little white heads everywhere. I was switching my pillow cases every day. It was just awful. So I finally took the advice of everyone on the internet and looked into this brand. I'm so glad I did. The first product I used was the Buffering Lotion. I wanted to integrate each one into my routine every wash. I immediately saw a difference. It did dry out my skin but every pimple flaked off in a matter of 3 days. I have a bit of scarring but I can deal with that. I've been using the Honey Moisturizer instead of the Trader Joe's one and for the first time in 6 months I don't have dry patches on my cheeks. I did notice it kind of beaded up on my nose but it didn't have any adverse effects. I got a free 5 piece gift set with it. I've used the cleansing lotion the last 2 times I washed my face and last night I used the Vitamin C serum. My skin feels great and is truly clear for the first time in over a year

        I really liked the smell and the texture. But for some reason the peanut oil or something in it made me break out. I tried it out for a couple of weeks and it kept making me break out. As soon as I stopped using it my skin cleared up.

          Absolutely in love with this! Not greasy and moisturizes well. I also love the smell (I really like anything honey-related). I heard that it isn't recommended for acne-prone skin, but I have it and the oil-free moisturizer made me greasier and break out and this (after a month of use) has not.

          A bit too heavy for me during the day, but perfect for night. Smells nice, goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly.

            I usually never use a moisturizer with my make up because it leaves me looking greasy. I was recommended this lotion when I was in Florida to help reduce dryness. This product is so worth the price! I put it on every morning and night along with the Mario Badescu facial spray and it leaves my skin feeling soft and looking great. Usually my skin gets oily, but this has made a notable difference in keeping it looking fresh and clean with make up on!

                This lotion smells amazing and goes on smoothly. A little goes a long way, so even though it is a little pricey, it should last a long time. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

                      A:

                      The Honey Moisturizer does contain Peanut Oil. Since you struggle with acne, you should opt for an oil free moisturizer. We offer the Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 (Item #: 2209852) which is our go-to moisturizer for acne prone skin.

                  • Q:

                    I have combination/oily skin in the summer and bought the kit for that skin type that includes the aloe 15 SPF for the day and the seaweed night moisturizer. I don't really care for the way my skin feels with the seaweed moisturizer and am interested in another moisturizer to use at night. Would this one be good for my skin type?

                      The A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer (Item #: 2209844) is a better option for combination/oily skin. It is a customer favorite "summertime" moisturizer that is lightweight, oil free, and easily absorbed.

                      Our products do not contain an expiration date on the packaging. Rather, they contain a PAO symbol. All of our products are good for a minimum period of 30 months, if unopened. Once the product is opened, it good for the period of time indicated in the PAO (period after opening) symbol.
