    Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

    I have only used this twice so far, so I have not had a chance to see the benefits. BUT I wanted to give my initial impression. I bought this as a daily moisturizer to replace my Vanicream because I wanted something with more benefits. After using this for 2 days I have noticed it isn't quite moisturizing enough for me. I'm not usually extremely dry but this doesn't leave me feeling moisturized. I think I will try mixing with the Vanicream to get the added benefits.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

      I have pretty dry skin and this has been the only product that makes my face and neck feel fabulous. I also have sensitive skin that most products seem to irritate but Mario is so soothing and doesn't leave my skin blotchy or itchy. I use it morning, night, and after every shower. It doesn't clog my pores and has left me feeling confident! I will definitely be buying this product again and again, and again!

        I love this moisturizer it works great on me and I have very dry skin. It doesn't have SPF so you can apply it night or day, but when I'm applying it during the day I make sure to put suncscreen on after. It absorbs quickly and leaves you feeling hydrated all day.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

        I have very acne prone skin. Even as an adult I have had it my entire life. This line has been very helpful. Due to the importance of moisturizing so your skin doesn't produce pore clogging oil of it's own I have tried so many brands and products. This is one of the only items that I've used that doesn't cause me to break out. I use it in combination with the healing powder. It isn't heavy or greasy at all but I do feel somewhat of a texture after use. I use it in the morning let it set, then I use healing powder. Over that I use my makeup primer and liquid foundation. Honestly, my face has never been more clearand that is one of my biggest self conscious problems.

                This makes my skin so smooth. I use it 2x a day in the morning and at night. I use it after washing my face w Mario Badescu Enzyme gel cleanser, using witch hazel as toner, and then using Mario Badescu grapefruit cleansing lotion. i have very acne prone skin and this moisturizer does not give me any breakouts. I absolutely love it. Its like a miracle product. For my entire life I never used moisturizer because all of it gave me breakouts. This is the only one I've ever found that keeps my skin clear, I am so glad I received a sample with a purchase so I could discover this amazing product. I bought the full size immediately after trying the sample, I just wish the full size bottle was bigger.
