    Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

    I have only used this a couple days and have already seen improvements in my skin! It definitely moisturizes my face and neck but doesn't leave it oily or greasy. This is my new favorite moisturizer!!! I wish it came in a bigger bottle lol. My skin is brighter, I am noticing less texture on my face, my face looks clearer, acne scars are fading and my pores are not clogged! MB did it AGAIN!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

      I have tried so many moisturizers and they all irritates my skin or make it so oily but this one is my favorite so far. I used to get large black heads on my nose all the time but since I started using this product i never got them and face is so clean. Its so gentle on skin, but if you have a very dry skin this won't help because its so light for me but moisturiZes very well. I just got my second bottle and will buy again and again!!!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

        I have been using this consistently for only the past week and my skin changed drastically. I had a horrible breakout on my cheeks that left scars, and they usually take a while to fade. Now my scars are mostly faded. Not only that, but I have less redness and my pores on my inner cheeks got smaller (and they usually never do). I havent really done anything differently in my routine other than this moisturizer so I'm pretty sure this is the reason why my skin got so much better. I also have combo skin with an oily T zone and dry cheeks and I feel like my skin is more balanced and is brighter as well. And in my opinion this product smells nice, like yogurt.

            I have searched for a good moisturizer that doesn't irritate my dry & sensitive skin. This one is a great choice not scented and provides light weight moisturizer that doesn't feel like it clogs my pores.

              I love this.
              I have a super dry and sensitive skin. I tried another moisturiser from ulta got burning sensation and had to get a new one immediately. a Salesperson at ulta helped me pick this and it works perfect . It leaves my skin soft and moisturises well. My friends told me my face looks more bright and i love it.

                I have been using this for a few months now and this is the one and only product that I use everytime i wash my face. This is the kind of product that I am excited to put on my face...never thought i would feel that way about a moisturizer!! I used to have dull skin and some scarring. I feel more confident to wear no makeup now.

                  I am typically a stickler for label reading, but this brand was so highly recommend to me by an aesthetician that I shelled out the money for this tiny bottle only to glance at the back after using for a few weeks to see that the NO. 2 ingredient is mineral oil. Seriously?! For something this expenseive I want a moisturizer that has ingredients that actually benefit my skin in at least the top ingredients spots.

                      • Q:

                        I've been using this Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C for awhile, I like it. Now that is winter I think I need something a little bit heavier. I have dry skin. I am looking for a moisturizer with SPF and then a night cream (or regular moisturizer that will work well for night). I didn't like the Seaweed Night Cream, found it super heavy. The Collagen moisturizer was also heavy but maybe since it is drier it would be ok? I know you have a ton of variety in moisturizers and am looking for a good match.
