Most Helpful Positive Review The best moisturizer to put on before makeup.
I am a salon owner and master cosmetologist and this is one of the best beauty product lines that I have found. Great quality at an affordable price. I tell all my clients about it. People tell me all the time that I look way younger that what I am.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not enough
I have combination/sensitive skin and eczema. This moisturizer just didn't provide my skin with enough moisture to hydrate my dry areas. I did not get that "velvety smooth" feeling that is advertised on the bottle. I also wish Mario Badescu would stop using filler ingredients such as mineral oil and propylene glycol in their first five ingredients, their brand is marketed as a more "natural" brand, but the cons really outweigh the pros.

Luscious moisturizer but it has mineral oil
RissyF from Milwaukee, WI
I was really excited to try this moisturizer! I found it to be very moisturizing and long lasting. But I noticed my skin started to feel clogged up. I didn't necessarily break out, just starting noticing tiny clogged pores and felt like my dead skin wasn't able to detach itself as normal, staying stuck on my skin with the natural oil from my face (and this moisturizer) resulting in just an overall yucky gunky feeling.
Upon reading the ingredients, I discovered it has mineral oil in it. I did a lot of research and mineral oil itself does NOT clog your pores. However, it can trap things that do. Unfortunately I don't think my skin reacts well to the oil and starts to feel gunked up. Perhaps I could use this moisturizer once a week, or in the winter if my skin gets super dry, but I was looking for something I could use everyday. Had to return.
Great for Acne Prone and Rough Skin!
Lilly from DFW, Texas
I was hesitant in trying this because I had just been through the worst skin breakouts of my entire life, but I took a leap of faith, and let me tell you, this has not only decreased the definition of my breakouts, but it makes my skin SO soft, no more rough, super bumpy skin, it also leaves my skin dewy and firm, I love this!!!!
Anna from North Carolina
I have been using this moisturizer for the greater part of the last 4-5 years and I LOVE it. I consider myself somewhat of a moisturizer fanatic, and have tried many (although not all), and this one has been a constant throughout all of my trials and changes. I always have a bottle on hand and use it daily, often times mixing it with my evening cream as well. I've even mixed it with thicker BB creams for a lighter more moisturizing coverage. While this moisturizer doesn't do it all (ie no SPF, not a rich night cream), it is a great base moisturizer and gives my skin a dewy, fresh look without being heavy or greasy. It submerges into the skin and makes it look great from the get go! HIGHLY recommend!

A little goes a long way. You only need a small amount to cover face and neck. My skin has felt great!
Makes me look younger
WinterBelle from Saint Louis
I started off using the aloe vera moisturizer from MB but it wasn't enough for the dry winter air where I live.
I decided to spend some time reading the ingredients of all the MB moisturizers and this one caught my eye because it has squalane which I've had great results with.
I use this after my hyaluronic acid serum and omg, it gives me glowy neutrogena girl skin! I am in my early 30s but people think I am 20-25 all the time because its THAT good!
great daily moisturizer
megan from West Virginia
I have normal to dry skin and am fairly acne prone. i love this moisturizer! it doesn't feel too watery or thick; it's thin lotion consistency. anything with fragrance they say is bad for skin, but this is one of the only moisturizers that actually makes my skin less dry and also doesn't break me out. it has a pleasant scent that goes away and is not overpowering at all. makes your skin GLOW. not greasy, dried down beautifully. makes my bare skin like very healthy (doesn't make it look oily, but moisturized instead)
Grace from New England
Really firms the skin and it leaves my combo dry skin nice and smooth and full of moisture. If you are worried about fine lines buy this moisturizer!!
dandksmommy from Clovis, CA
I was hesitant to try this moisturizer because of the price/small bottle, but I'm glad I did. This moisturizer not only has a light scent but it also makes my 50 yo face feel soft and moisturized. It's only been a month do I haven't seen any firming or a lot of plumping, but I will say it absorbs well and dries quickly without feeling tacky. I saw another review commenting on SPF in the formula but I double checked the ingredients and there isn't any in the Cellufirm. There is dimethicone which is a silicone so that is why the product goes on so smoothly. I wish it had sunscreen because with Melasma I need it. All in all I really like this moisturizer as well as the cucumber moisturizer.
Not ultra hydrating but does seem to firm skin.
RZ from Westfield, MA
I do love this product, and I guess it's unreasonable to expect one product to do everything. I use extra moisturizer to keep my skin feeling dewy because I like that but If you appreciate tight and firm skin that is slightly matte you will be obsessed with this. It does firm up my face nicely for the price, I am guessing even more expensive brands don't do as well of a job at it.
i love this

Contains perfume and spf!!!!
WARNING! HIDDEN PERFUME AND SPF!!! from Ny
If I could give this one star I would it contains perfume and SPF which they do not advertise you have to read the ingredients to find out which unfortunately I did not find out until I broke out because I am allergic to both the worst moisturizer cream I've ever used . Never again will buy! READ INGREDIENTS PLEASE!!

I care about maintaining healthy skin with the least amount of chemicals
This brand meets that criteria
This Made my Year!
Bananapancake from New Mexico
I have acne-prone skin and I HATE how greasy most moisturizers leave my skin. The excess oil always traps dirt and makes me break out after a 12 hour shift. This moisturizer is different. It's smooth, non-greasy, and makes my skin look so beautiful. Only had it a week and I can't believe I've lived so long without it. It's fantastic.
Would buy again
JEN from Irvine Ky
Love the product this far. Goes on great and like all other products not so costly to break your wallet.
Emily from Pennsylvania
I have very dry skin due to the winter months, and this product transformed my face overnight!!! No more dryness, and my skin looks brighter, smoother, and plumper. 10/10 recommend!!
I recommend! Love it.

Full of lightweight moisture
Shelby from Chicago, IL
I got some Mario samples and ended up falling in love with this moisturizer. My skin is on the drier side and I've been trying to find a moisturizer I love for over a year. Once I tried this sample I knew I'd return to buy the real thing and I'm still so satisfied. I love this moisturizer and all products from this brand.
Best moisturizer I've ever used!!!
Galalaa_ from Pullman, WA
My friend showed me this product and as soon as you put it on your skin you feel the difference and how good it feels on your skin. I've been using it after i wash my face and before bed.

My skin loves hydration and it is sensitive - plus I am 57 years old.
This product is WONDERFUL!!! Thank You Mario!
Love this face lotion!
Jessica from Omaha
I have been using this everyday for 4 years.. have tried many other facial mosturizers including Clinique. I always come back to this one.
Perfect but Pricey
Dakota from NC
I do love this moisturizer. I'm not sure if it truly makes my skin more firm but it does help with the oil control and shininess my skin tends to get.
Good for the price. Not 100% effective.
House wife from Nyc
Good for the price, after a couple hours then probably the effects would be gone.
