    I was looking for a lightweight moisturizer and I found it finally most I have found are too thick. Love this one.

        I have really dramatic Tzone combination skin. So trying to find moisturizers that doesn't break me out it terrifically difficult,. But I FOUND IT ! This product is great. Makes my skin soft but not oily. So far so good with the oil breakouts.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

        I really wanted to love this because I've loved Mario Badescu's products for years. It moisturizes well and makes my skin feel great and super soft, but like another reviewer said, I'm shiny within 30 minutes. Over the course of the day I'm like an oil vat. I find myself having to use oil blotting sheets 2-3 times more than I would with my current daytime moisturizer. I'm pretty disappointed with this product especially for the price. I'll continue to use as a nighttime moisturizer whenever my skin gets dry, but bummer.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin:

            I used to only use the Neutrogena oil-free moisturizer for my very oily skin. I decided to try this out because it got pretty good reviews. One little bottle has lasted me about a year (a little goes a long way!) and I love it. I tried to go back to my old moisturizer but it made my face oily after about 2 o'clock. This product keeps my skin oil-free all day long, even in the hot summer days. Takes a little bit for it to absorb into the skin, but it's consistency lets me use it as a primer as well. Love!

                    A:

                    Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin does provide very light hydration but it will not over dry your skin. Another great option for oily skin is A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer (Item #: 2209844). It delivers light hydration with exfoliating properties to improve radiance and texture.
