    Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

    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.

            I love Mario Badescu products and just got this moisturizer. The first thing I noticed is the really bad smell. Almost like melted plastic. I didn't notice any extra moisturizing benefits from using this so I'm taking it back and going to exchange it for a different MB moisturizer.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

              I really loved this product when I got it as a sample so I purchased the full size and when that ran out, I purchased another one. I've also been breaking out pretty severely the past 2 months which is unusual for me. I couldn't figure out why I was breaking out or why I couldn't get it to stop until I was looking at this product and realized it's not oil free! Meaning it's been clogging my pores and causing me to breakout. I immediately switched back to my old moisturizer and my face already looks 10x better. This is a nice product and does keep your skin super moisturized but I'd definitely say it's for people with dry/normal skin. I gave the rest to my mom as I didn't want to waste it, hopefully it works better for her than it did for me.

                    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.
