Give dull complexions a boost of radiance. This rejuvenating moisturizer provides lightweight hydration, featuring ceramides to help protect against moisture loss without being heavy on the skin. Fine lines are smoothed as lemon and lemongrass extracts help reduce the look of discoloration to reveal a brighter and more even, youthful-looking complexion.
Apply to skin after cleansing and toning, avoiding the eye area. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

    Greasy

    By Christina

    from Boston, MA

    Comments about Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer:

    I was expecting this to become my go to moisturizer after reading reviews. I just don't get it. This left my skin (normally dry) feeling and looking greasy. It takes a while to really absorb into my skin and kind of just sits on top of my skin so I really can't wear it under makeup because it takes way too long to sink in. I wear it at night and it is great for that. I wouldn't buy it again, it's too expensive and not that great of a product.

    Comments about Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer:

    Love the texture and how it absorbs into the skin.
    Not moisturizing enough for my dry, mature skin.
    Will probably be good for the summer.

      Comments about Mario Badescu A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer:

      I started using this product after being introduced to the line about 6 months ago. This is a light, effective moisturizer for dry aging or mature skin. I see a huge improvement in fine lines, skin tone and overall dryness . I use this in am and pm. A little bit goes a long way so the bottle last up to four months. The price is right and the entire line is fab!

          This product is marketed as good quality but it is not, Ulta pushes it on the store to clients for commission without consideration for the clients real needs.

            I use this moisturizer twice a day. I have combination skin (more oily than dry), and this does a great job stopping breakouts, helping with dry areas, and not making oily areas (like T-zone) too oily.

                    A:

                    Broad spectrum protection is more important than ever if you're using products containing AHAs or BHAs. Because these ingredients are constantly encouraging the removal of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, newer skin, sunscreen is crucial in keep skin looking even. We also recommend avoiding tanning beds when using these types of products.

                    Thank you for your interest in Mario Badescu products. Although we do offer some dye free products, a number of our products do rely on the addition of a colorant to help the product achieve a uniform color. Please refer to a product's ingredient listing to avoid these items. These are some other dye free popular products: Vitamin C Serum, Peptide Renewal Serum, Peptide Renewal Cream, Drying Lotion, Silver Powder, Special Healing Powder
