    Comments about Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30:

    I was really excited to try this, since I pretty much love this whole line. I have acne-prone skin that I've finally gotten under control over the past few years. I thought this would be perfect to stay hydrated in Colorado's dry environment without making me more oily and causing acne again. However, it did not absorb quickly at all. It was so greasy, I couldn't use it in the morning under my makeup. I was so sad. Switched to the honey moisturizer and it's so much better.

      This is BY FAR the BEST moisturizer I've used. At first, it does look a little greasy, but once it absorbs, it leaves your skin looking healthy and hydrated. I have super sensitive, oily, reactive skin and this doesn't irritate me at all. I love that there is so much SPF in it.

        I love this moisturizer. I have acne prone skin, and have been looking for a product that will protect my face from the sun but not be too greasy and heavy aswell. I finally found a product that has everything I was looking for. It is a little pricey but a little goes a long way, and well worth the $.

              I'm just about to finish my first bottle of this and I loved it, it moisturized my skin so well, doesn't smell bad, doesn't make me break out or any oilier than I already am. Immediately when you put it on your skin it looks very oily, which terrified me, but within 5-10 minutes it settles into your skin and you can't even tell you put moisturizer on. But the thing that annoyed me SO MUCH was the bottle, after you squeeze out moisturizer, some stays inside the part that distributes the product, so the next day when you squeeze some out it's hard and dried moisturizer. And also some oil but I shake the bottle every time I use it, it helps mix it all together. So overall the product is great but the packaging needs some work.

                I have used the same product with Spf15 and I loved how it improved my skin and all the sun spots vanished completely.
                Problem is that I order this product couple months ago with spf 30 and it doesn't work the same. I'm using this cream under makeup and it's making my sun spots worse. I don't know wat ingredient has changed.

                  • Q:

                    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.

I tend to be more dry these days. My Nordstrom consultant put a sample in my bag. After using it I like the moisture. Is this for me? I'm not trying to dry out.

                      The Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF 30) is a lightweight and oil free moisturizer formulated for oily or combination skin types. Our Complex Moisturizer SPF 20 is designed for dry skin in need of extra moisture and does contain hydrating sesame oil. I would not recommend switching if you are happy with your current moisture levels.

                    I noticed that this moisturizer has more ingredients listed than the same moisturizer's SPF 17 version. Is there a difference between the two products other than the level of SPF? Is one more likely to break me out, or be greasier?

                      Both of these moisturizers deliver oil free moisture and are recommended for oily, acne prone skin. The Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30 offers the additional benefits of Aloe Vera and Green Tea Extract. The Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 is a bit lighter when applied to the skin and is featured in our Acne Starter Kit (Item #: 2263619).

                    I have very oily skin. I use the seaweed night cream and absolutely love it, but obviously it does leave my skin oily in the morning (my morning face routine clears that problem up). Would this moisturizer keep my face matte, or at least less oily, throughout the day? If not do you have any suggestions?
