    Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

    I started loving Mario Badescu products last year, but I have to say this one is definitely a dud. I hate not using it because the product line is a bit pricey, but normally I do not mind if the product is worth it.

              I use this product every night and sometimes as a second layer in the morning if Im feeling dry. I have crazy acne prone, dry skin and this along with other Mario products as cleared up my face almost entirely in less than a week. It feels so light but is so nourishing! Love this!

                Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

                I love everything about this stuff. You only need a very tiny bit for your entire face and decolletage, so the bottle lasts quite awhile! I have dry, sensitive skin and this stuff definitely quenches it and absorbs pretty quickly, especially for the consistency. I detest anything that leaves a greasy feeling! I apply this after a serum that I use from a different brand. But I use the Vitamin C serum from this brand at night and I'd imagine this lotion works great over that as well!

                    I am very picky with what I'll spend on brand wise but this is well worth it. Been using for almost a year and it works well for my sensitive dry skin. On dryer days I have to apply extra but typically a small amount goes a long way. I stopped using it for a few weeks and felt like my skin was deteriorating so that proved how well it was working for me and I haven't stopped using since! Very light and non greasy and has a light scent. Buy a few when they're on sale bc it only happens once or twice a year

                      Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

                      I am in my 40's and have a few lines starting to show up around my eyes. During the winter months, the dry air affects my skin and makes the lines more obvious. This moisturizer is great for hydrating the skin without leaving behind a greasy feeling. I use it daily under my makeup and never have to worry about looking shiny later in the day. Since having switched to this Honey Moisturizer, my skin looks more hydrated, feels amazingly soft, and those fine lines are much less noticeable.

                      I was surprised by the size of this bottle. I have used Mario's Botanical cleanser for months so, when ordering the Honey Moisturizer, I expected to receive a bottle that was similar in size. What I received was a small bottle, think travel-sized, that costs more than the big bottle of the cleanser. (totally my own fault for not paying attention to the listed size)

                      All in all, I am very pleased with the quality of this product. It is very effective, smells great, and a little goes a long way. I will definitely be ordering this in the future when I run out.

                          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.
