Buttermilk Moisturizer

2.0 oz Item 2209846

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:

          I have very dry skin and all my moisturizers either contain silicone or demithicone. I noticed the more frequently I used my mousturizers the more white bumps would appear on my face (from clogged pores)
          This is the only moisturizer that does not clog my pores, provides lasting hydration, and does not feel greasy on my face!

            Comments about Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer:

            I have combination oily skin that is fairly rough and acne prone. I was super hesitant to try this product, since trying anything new is a bit hardh on my skin, but I'm so happy I did! I was worried it might be too greasy for my oily skin, but it was perfect. It absorbs quickly, and I've noticed a definite change in my skin texture. My face is so smooth and soft now! I've only been using this product for about three weeks, and thankfully it hasn't broken me out yet, so I'd highly recommend at least giving it a try!

              I have pretty dry skin but this just wasn't moisturizing enough for me to use by itself. Definitely need another moisturizer when my skin is more on the dry side.

                I use this product on other people when I do their makeup. It's great especially because I use it on my friends who has allergies to chemicals and smells. I just wish is was more of a deeper moisturizer. Maybe I just need to try it on myself.

                      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

                      Hi Dawn - Although the Buttermilk Moisturizer is mildly exfoliating, it will not remove freckles.
