    Comments about Mario Badescu Complex Moisturizer With Vitamin E SPF 20:

    I've been looking for a good moisturizer with SPF in it (because, let's face it, not everyone wants to add an extra step to their skincare routine). I like this product because it's got natural ingredients and vitamin E which helps fight against aging but what I don't love about it is that you can very easily tell it's got SPF in it because of the smell and texture. It seems very slimy when you first put it on your face even though it does absorb into the skin nicely (a little bit of this product goes a long way!!)

          I have very sensitive, dry skin and rosacea. I really don't have a specific complaint about this moisturizer just don't feel like my skin looked as healthy or clear as with others I've tried. Love the price & the fact it has spf.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Complex Moisturizer With Vitamin E SPF 20:

              Don't use with makeup. There is no amount of matte foundation or setting powder that will take the oily/greasy shine off of your face. Probably good for applying without makeup and going out in the sun. I returned the product as I already use a face sunscreen that can by applied under makeup without the greasy look.

              use a little at night and spray a toner after and in the morning because of the spf it has in it.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Complex Moisturizer With Vitamin E SPF 20:

              I have combination skin & I've been testing the waters with different skin care brands - still searching for what works best for me. I always use a moisturizer with an SPF in the morning before I leave for work for protection. My cheeks / around my mouth get very dry, but my T-zone gets very oily. I've started to use this product ONLY in my dry areas because I find when I use it where I tend to get more oily throughout the day, it enhances that oily greasy feeling & makes me look shiny. I should mention that I don't wear foundation or concealer during the weekdays - but I have used this under my makeup before on the weekends & haven't had any issues (with primer, powder etc.) It's just really heavy & I wouldn't recommend it for people who have oily skin. I do love other Mario B products but I probably won't purchase this again... price point is very reasonable though.

                I've been using this moisturizer for four years. I have very dry, flakey skin in the winters in upstate New York. I haven't had flakey skin once in the last four years since using this product. My skin absorbs it quickly and leaves a nice, healthy looking glow. I pair it with Mario Bedescu's Fscial Spray with Herbs and Aloe and Rose Water.
