Find in Store-

Rejuvenate your skin with lightweight, skin-smoothing hydration. Lactic acid and thyme extract combine to give lackluster complextions a clarifying boost, gently dissolving away dulling dead skins cells to help reduce the look of fine lines and discoloration. Brighter, fresher skin is revealed as allantoin and chamomile deliver soothing moisture - leaving the complextion looking radiant and more youthful.
Apply to skin after cleansing and toning, avoiding the eye area. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

    Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

    So far so good. Tried the, AHA cerimade, the oil frre, the peptide renewal and the kera moist. Every single one gave me so many little white heads all over my face. So far this one does not. It seems to require a bit more product then the others. But i can deal with that if it dosnt break me out worse. Going on 60 with combo/sen acne prone skin. I use with the acne cleanser.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

      I wouldn't use this again. I ended up returning this product. I have acne-prone, combination and oily skin. Maybe if you really want to try this moisturizer I would possibly try using it in the winter. However, as far as my type of skin and the warm weather it didn't do my face any justice. It caused more breakouts, didn't absorb, and left my face BEYOND greasy.

              This lotion is very good. I have very dry skin, so I have to use this in addition to my cetaphil moisturizer, but i don't mind. The lotion goes on very well. I wish it was just a little more hydrating for my dry skin.

                    A:

                    This claims products are non-pore clogging, and there is no way to guarantee that a product will not clog your pores. The answer is in using a complete product regimen geared toward oily skin types comprised oil free products. That being said, Buttermilk Moisturizer is not oil free.
                    Our Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15 is a great oil free moisturizer to try. http://www.ulta.com/aloe-moisturizer-spf-15?productId=xlsImpprod6200701
