  • Moisturizes Well

    Best Uses

    Comments about Mario Badescu Protein Night Cream:

    I have combination skin and mild acne. My dermatologist prescribed a retinoid for me which really drys my skin out along with flaking. I use the protein night cream nightly after applying the retinoid and it keeps my skin from drying out and peeling but still helps keep my skin clear.

    A lot of the reviews mention that it's greasy, which isn't false but I think it works really well to keep my skin moisturized and it absorbs well over night- I don't wake up to greasy skin. It also really improves the overall texture of my skin! So if you have dry skin and don't mind the greasiness then I would definitely recommend trying it!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Protein Night Cream:

      Great overall product line that I just started using at my daughters urging. Love the price point, which falls somewhere between pharmacy brands and brand names (although a lot of pharmacy brands are getting high in price) . For the quality of the product and the way my skin has felt and looked since using it is a great deal! This particular night cream is a little thick. I just apply a dab of water to the amount I use and heat it up in my hands before I apply. With that being my only complaint, my skins looks and feels amazing after a week of using it. My husband even said so! I highly recommend the line, they have several day and night creams so if your put off by the thickness of one try something else . You can go on their website and answer some questions and it will recommend several products to choose from! So far I am thrilled with it so I just went and purchased a day moisturizer as well, goes on so lightweight. OVERALL I LOVE THIS LINE!

        Comments about Mario Badescu Protein Night Cream:

        For how thick this goes on, I was hoping it would moisturize my skin more than it does. Don't get me wrong, it does a good job, I was just hoping for a little more.

        For instance, I'll use it at night, and then wash it off in the morning. After washing, my face will still feel a bit tight/dry. I feel for the thickness, my face should be hydrated enough to handle a washing.

        **Seriously, this stuff is thick. I would suggest warming it up in your hands, or mixing it with something before applying so you don't tug on your skin too much. I mix it with their Rose Hips Nourishing Oil to make it easier to apply.**

        It will leave you very greasy, and will sit on your face, as it doesn't sink in well. Expect to rub some off on your pillow if you use it before bed. I've even tried putting it on 2-3 hours before sleeping, and it's still just sitting there.

        It gets the job done, but I don't think it's worth looking and feeling like a greased up turkey.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Protein Night Cream:

              I recently bought this item because I was very interested in MB products. At first I had mixed feelings about this cream because i felt like I just looked like a greased chicken but when I woke up in the morning my skin felt fabulous! So I don't mind looking a little greasy at night while it absorbs because the results in the morning are flawless. I hope this product continues to blow me away

                • Q:

                  Is this a retinoid cream? It says that it contains vitamin A, but does that mean that it has retinol in it?

                    A:

                    Retinol is used in a variety of skincare preparations as an exfoliant to stimulate cell turnover in your skin. Products with retinol help you to look younger because retinol stimulates collagen fiber growth. While retinyl palmitate (Vitamin A) is an earlier form of retinol, it does not have the same effects. Instead, retinyl palmitate can be effective in boosting collagen fiber production in your skin, which can help you look younger. However, retinyl palmitate does not have the same exfoliating effects as retinol.
