    Comments about Mario Badescu Ginseng Moist Cream:

    I am a makeup and skincare fanatic with extremely dry and sensitive skin and I have breakouts with a lot of products that I try. This, so far, is great! I've been looking for a good nighttime moisturizer (this may be a little bit too greasy before makeup, even with my dry skin) that is an affordable replacement for my Clinique Moisture Surge moisturizer and this has been doing the trick. I don't mind the smell, but I can see why people wouldn't like it but it really doesn't linger at all. If you're looking for a heavier moisturizer and don't want to break the bank I would give this a shot!

    Comments about Mario Badescu Ginseng Moist Cream:

    This product is a perfect everyday moisturizer. I use this about 10 minutes before applying makeup and after cleansing my skin at night. If you have dry skin this is perfect all year hydration! Only downfall is that it smells kinda funky, but nothing terrible!

          I bought this at ulta earlier and didn't notice this product has parabens in it, super disappointed because I've been looking for a decent moisturizer all week since 100% pure ran out of the one I wanted to purchase online, sadly to say I will be returning this product as I don't see the point of slathering something onto my face everyday that I don't think is perfectly good for my skin. It probably has other stuff in it that I don't know about that is also bad, I usually look up anything that I buy on the website EWG to make sure its no carcinogenic or mess with hormones etc but this brand wasn't on EWG. Whats the point of wasting money on skin care that's bad for you, senseless. It's 2017 I haven't the slightest clue why any brand would put parabens in their products. Who the heck makes this stuff? Get a clue. If parabens weren't that bad they wouldn't be banned in other countries you clowns (EU and Japan).

            I use this literally everyday; Once in the morning and once at night. The very first day I used it, I notice most of the bumps on my face disappeared. My skin is really sensitive so I've been looking for good skin care products and this is def my #1 cream

              Comments about Mario Badescu Ginseng Moist Cream:

              I have combination skin that is more dry in the winter and I wanted a daycream for winter (no SPF because it sometimes breaks me out). It is very moisturizing and seems to last a while. The consistency is not too thick and not too thin. And the scent is very light. I think it is a great option in the mid price range. Will purchase again.

              Moisturizes well but you need to rub it in more than other moisturizers.

                  I'm really disappointed in how this product sits on top of the skin, this product takes a lot of massaging to eat it into the skin. I am impressed with how the next morning I woke up and all the dry patches I focused on felt smooth and moisturizer.

                  • Q:

                    I have combo/acne prone skin, but I am in need of a moisturizer with a little more moisturizing properties for winter. I currently use the MB oil free moisturizer with spf during the day and the MB seaweed night cream at night. Would this be a good substitute day moisturizer for winter?

                  • Q:

                    I have very dry skin (like it's so dry it's flacking off my forehead) but I do get break outs occasionally elsewhere on my face but overall my skin is very dry with some fine lines. I've been looking at a lot of products and I'm wondering out of all the MB products which would be best for my dry skin? I'm looking for a moisturizer that can be used day or night. I'm also looking for one with SPF for day wear I'm really likening the way the moisture magnet is sounding but is this the best for my my dry and aging skin? Please recommend other products that I should try! :)

                    I am 21, will this be okay for overnight moisture? I have used the Mario Badescu Acne Startrer Kit in the past and have now purchased the full size bottles. I Like the oil free moisturizer but I feel like it doesn't help for overnight. If this won't work could you recommend another product?
