    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.

      I had high hopes for this spf moisturizer, but there is no way this is oil free. I've combination skin and it was extremely greasy and oily for me. The protection was good though and it looked fine under makeup, but gave me a pimple in my forehead :/

        I have oily skin and extremely sensitive skin. My face will tell me as quickly as the first time that I try a new product, whether or not if a product is great or terrible. My pores clog easily and quickly. This moisturizer is wonderful. A little goes a long way. My face soaks it up within minutes. My face and neck look really good. I do not have a problem with getting product out of the bottle. I have no scent with my moisturizer. I will buy this moisturizer again and again.

          Too greasy, SPF smell too strong

          Comments about Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30:

          Was on a hunt for a face SPF, picked this one up along with a few others from different brands. My skin is combo so the main concern when choosing these was for them not to cause any more oiliness. I also have medium olive skin tone so second concern was no white cast.

          This one was way too greasy for my face, not even remotely suitable for my skin type. It does feel very moisturizing so I ended up leaving it to use on my arms, neck, and hands. Does seem to provide good sun protection, but not great, I still would get color if exposed to sun too long. I live in Southern Cali so I can get tanned by just commuting to and from work year around (no tint on the car). For the above usage this is obviously too expensive and not even effective enough, so I won't be repurchasing it.

          Lastly I found the SPF smell to be too strong. Unlike others I actually like a typical SPF scent but as long as it's not too heavy, best if it's a hint mixed with something else beach-inspiring like coconut, vanilla, etc. In this case it was just too overpowering, even when I layered it over a scented lotion.

          Use this as part of my son's face wash regimine (along with the acne face wash, drying mask, and toner.) It goes on smoothly, and seems to absorb, but later feels greasy. I love the other products much better, but it's hard to find a lotion that doesn't turn greasy.

            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.

                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.
