Most Helpful Positive Review Great Night Cream
I was suggested this by a friend of mine so naturally I ran out to purchase some. Ive used some Mario Bedescu products before for acne and was very pleased. I typically wash my face and will use a serum and complex and than once those soak in I will put a small amount of this caviar night cream on. Its amazing. My skin glows!! I find it very healing; I've got a lot of red scarred skin from previous acne breakouts and this seems to be helping with the healing of them. The only complaint I would say is if you use too much its definitely a little waxy/oily feeling. I have sensitive/combination oily skin so I was a little Leary that this product would make me break out yet- NOTHING! I am very pleased!! I use the Chamomile Eye Treatment as well and adore that product as well. VERY PLEASED with Mario Bedescu products and have in fact purchased two caviar night creams for my mom and my girlfriend to try. I love thathis products are reasonably priced.
Most Helpful Critical Review Super Moisturizing but a little too greasy for me
This was recommended by two friends to try. I love everything from Mario Badescu so I was sure I would love this. For me personally it was way to greasy and didn't absorb fast enough. I am weird when it comes to textures and even though I want high moisture I don't want to feel greasy. The smell is light and fresh. My face felt amazing and hydrated the next morning. This would be great if you can get past the greasy feeling.

Like a few other products with this line, I was skeptical because of the small packaging. But, very little goes a long way. This night cream is thick and creamy, but again, it's for nighttime so it's soaking in and renewing your skin through the night. (Not meant for using during the day or with makeup.) I use this every night I can feel it soaking right in and my skin immediately looks brighter and glowy. I'm very happy I've dabbled in this skincare line. I also use the peptide serum which is a great addition to any skincare line. I use it day and night after my cleaning lotion and before my moisturizer.
I like it

Good night cream for dry skin
Should be renamed ointment
Aud from Scottsdale
The third ingredient in this is petrolatum which is an ointment, not a cream! This is VERY occlusive (imagine rubbing Vaseline/Aquaphor on your face). Ointments are great for protecting and preventing moisture loss, but at the expense of feeling like a greaseball. My skin isn't dry enough to use this, even though I was looking for a heavy night time CREAM. Every time I used this at night, a lot of it just rubbed off onto my pillow. Again, acts more like an ointment which usually needs to be covered after applying to avoid transfer.
Use It Everyday!! Very Moisturizing!!
bubba from WA
I use this everyday, and is apart of my daily skin routine. I don't even use it at night I would not recommend though for oily skin. If you have dry skin and are to clear up those dry patches, this is it. Or if you are looking for an all day dewy look this is it! You don't have to use a lot either!
Too rich for me
Aksana from Longmont
This cream is very rich. I have slightly dry skin but even for me this is too rich. I wake up with oily and slightly puffy skin when I used this. It did NOT make me break out, which is awesome, but the thickness always made me feel like my skin wasn't breathing and the pores were getting clogged. I actually tried it for a long time, I used it for a solid month, but it still didn't excite me. It doesn't really smell like anything. Unfortunately retuned.
I am obsessed with this moisturizer
Lindsay from Baton Rouge, LA
I use my cream every evening after I wash my face before bed. It has a thicker texture, which I love. So smooth and really coats the face and neck, which even feels soft and smooth well into the next morning. A little goes a long way!
Itzel from California
I used this cream for about 2 weeks. Personally, I thought it was too thick and was never fully absorbed by my skin. Way too heavy. Felt like it was clogging my pores. Wish I had read the ingredients earlier. Ended up returning.
Rose from Texas
I really wanted to like this cream but it's way to heavy even for my.dry skin.
I do not like how it does feel on the skin. There is many cheaper but better creams on the market
I won't buy this ever again.
Lana B from AZ
Love the texture. Skin feels amazing the next day.

I've used this for about a week and my face feels so AMAZING in the morning!! It's thick but not too thick. Absolutely full of moisture.
Diana from Portland, OR
After reading all the good reviews on this item, I went ahead and bought it. It's incredibly effective! Although it is greasy, it's a night cream, meaning you leave it on overnight. When you wash your face in the morning, the greasiness should completely go away and your skin will feel super hydrated. I have combination skin, my T-zone tends to get oily but it's also quite flaky and my cheeks are just dry. I've been using this product for a few weeks and after just a day or two, the results shocked me. I always thought my skin texture wasn't too bad but after seeing how soft and smooth it could become, I'm never going to stop using this product! It makes applying foundation such a breeze. Also, creams usually break me out in my T-zone, but this one did not do that AT ALL.
Caroline from Maryland
I have combination skin and this is great! It does feel a bit greasy but I use it right before bed so it doesn't matter! By the time you wake up it's not greasy anymore and my skin feels great.
If your skin needs hydration, mario has you covered
Taylor from Indiana
Listen, if you're not accustomed to emollient creams, this will not be the product for you. This cream is for my ladies who have the crusty, scaly bits on their face, and they don't know what to buy to make their dry skin happy. HONEY! THIS IS IT! THIS IS YOUR SIGN TO BUY THIS PRODUCT! Again, it's an emollient, so it's going to feel very thick and maybe greasy. But your skin will wake up happy and refreshed in the morning. I don't think this product will ever be leaving my skin care bag again.
I'll probably never stop using this cream
Hales from Louisiana
I bought this product just grasping for something that would help with all of the acne scarring and dryness I've been getting lately from breakouts. I read the reviews and the description and this product is mainly targeted at 'dry mature skin' and is said not to improve acne scarring but IT DOES. I'm 18 and I use this product every single night before bed after washing with the Burt's Bees sensitive skin face wash and I've never been happier with my skin, every day my scarring, redness, dryness, and breakouts get a little bit better, I've never loved any skin product more.
Smooth & supple skin
MaxK from Atlanta
I use this over the MB Vitamin C Serum and the combination is producing amazing results! Even my eyes and laugh lines are velvety smooth. 1st jar and I'm hooked. MB is the most effective skin regime I've ever used.
I wouldn't buy this again
Britt from Detroit
I wouldn't buy this again and I wish I didn't. This cream is pretty heavy and greasy on the face after I cleansed and used mario's Toner. It takes a while for it to dry. I have combination skin and just didn't like this product.
tcmilli from Washington
I tried this last night for the first time and when I woke up this morning i could really tell a difference in tone and hydration. A little bit goes a long way, too! This product literally melts into your skin and feels lightweight. Not much scent at all, which is a huge plus. I will buy another jar once mine is finished!
Andrea from Virginia
I have been searching for Rosacea friendly products since being diagnosed about a year ago. I believe now that I've had it for a long time and certain makeups and cleansing products exacerbated the issue. I stumbled upon Mario products but had been cautious. I started with a cleanser and the lavender spray. My skin was so much happier. Recently I started noticing bothersome fine lines. I pride myself in looking younger than I am naturally, however, decided it is time for a night time moisturizer. This one is a bit heavy and greasy as some have reported, it boy does my skin feel and look great in the morning. My rosacea has calmed down even more. I've only been using it for about a week but I see improvement already.
Jessie from Albuquerque
I used this with a serum and it got rid of my first fine lines that I saw on my face. Someone told me it might be time for a night cream and I'm glad I listened! This was a great guy and it didn't cause me to break out.
The best I've ever used
Gigi from Rhode Island
As with all products in this line only a small amount is needed for optimization
a little goes a long way
cnkcali from Calfornia
I've tried using a small amount, in the morning my skin is very oily. It seems not to absorb very well.

Calms my face and moisturizes quickly.
Pam from New Port Richey Florida
I use it every night before bed.
Sunny from Michigan
I bought this cream due to extremely dry skin on my neck from colder temps. I was looking for a really heavy duty cream that would prevent my neck from having the dry scaly aging look. It quickly absorbs and really works. If you are extremely dry due to cold temps this is the cream for you. I wouldn't use too much on the face as it is pretty heavy but elsewhere is fine.
Perfect for dry skin and colder temperatures!!
Chloe C. from Lexington, KY
When I initially purchased this product during the summertime I was not pleased with it at all - it was just too moisturizing and thick for my skin. However, now that it is colder and my skin is dryer it has been the PERFECT cream to apply each night. Yes, this product is THICK. It is similar to a wax/balm feeling. However, it is not sticky like Vaseline. I like to apply this each night and in the morning my skin feels so moisturized and soft. When I know that I'll be walking around outside in the cold with the wind blowing in my face I will apply some of this too and it seriously creates a barrier and protects my skin!! You only need a small dab of the product, and I would recommend adding a drop of your favorite serum or face oil to make it easier to apply. The quality of my skin has improved as well. This may not be a product I use throughout the year, but it is for sure a staple in my winter routine!!
