      Comments about Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30:

      I was looking for a daytime moisturizer with a bit higher SPF ... I'm very fair skinned, and most other day creams seem to be 15 or 20 at the most. The bottle of this one allows you to accidentally squeeze too much out at once, but other than the packaging, I've been happy with the actual product itself. If it had a pump-style top instead, I'd give it 5 stars.

        I wanted to like this product because I love other Mario products, but this lotion was a miss. It's way too greasy and doesn't absorb.
        Also, the bottle gets clogged with hardened lotion at the opening- bad bottle design. Not worth it for the price...

          feels good but consistency is off

          By Steph

          from Cincinnati

          Comments about Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30:

          this feels really soft and it's a pleasant pink color. my main gripe is the packaging. I don't like the flip lid because sometimes this comes out as pink moisturizer and other times it is watery and bubbly. maybe I need to shake it?? it makes me wonder what is going on with formula.
          when I can get a good amount out of it, it does make for a smooth start before makeup.

            This product claims to be oil free but it literally sat on top of my skin for over 30 minutes. I have to use oil blotting sheets before I apply foundation. This product would probably be great for someone with dry skin who wants sun protection. If your skin is oily or combination oily like mine, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. However, I've personally had very good results with the Rainforest Tarte line. Cleanser, mist, and oil free moisturizer are terrific for oily skin just don't expect it to protect from the sun.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30:

              Love this moisturizer! I've been looking for a cruelty free SPF for daily use. I was using the Josie Maron but it broke me out terribly and left a noticeable white cast. THIS DOESN'T! I've used this every day for about three weeks and have had NO breakouts from this product and my makeup goes on lovely over this. It is moisturizing but not too heavy. It does sit on the skin a little bit but I like that because my skin never feels dry throughout the day. I have oily-combo skin and this doesn't make me overly so. I went to Disney World last week and only used this for my SPF on my face and didn't burn at all. It's sun tested! Would recommend if you are acne-prone and need a good SPF and daily moisturizer.

                So I have acne prone skin and have been using the Aveeno positively radiant moisturizer. Now that it is winter time, my skin is drying out and I want something that is oil free, has sunscreen, and provides me a lot of moisture. Would you recommend this one, the complex moisturizer with Vitamin E, or the Aloe Vera moisturizer?

                  A:

                  I would say that the Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15 would be the best bet. It is still oil free, but is a bit heavier than the Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30.
                  The Complex Moisturizer with Vitamin E SPF 20 would not be ideal for acne prone skin - it is a moisture intensive formula that does contain oil.
