      Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

      Being a college student, I tend to have breakouts caused by stress as well as when it's that time of the month. It's been hard finding a facial routine that I can follow through everyday that is budget friendly and efficient, but I finally found what works. Every morning and night I follow the same routine using pretty much the same brand of products. I cleanse my face with a spin brush using the Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser, followed by the Dickinsons Toner, I mist the Mario Badescu Rosewater all over my face, and then follow up with the Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer. This is what I found works for me. This combo leaves my skin feeling cleansed, refreshed, and hydrated. My acne is gone, leaving me with a radiant glow..I love it!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

      I have combo/dry, super sensitive, acne-prone skin. I was so impressed by this moisturizer. It's lightweight and I love the smell- I find it subtle and not overbearing. It's always a huge victory when I find something that doesn't make me break out!

          Bad on me for not reading the label until I got the item home. Fragrance was too much for me, and the use of dyes and fragrance in a moisturizer is so unnecessary. I'll be returning this product.

            First - the fragrance is very overbearing. So strong that others around me smelled it. You don't want that on your face. Not sure if it was the intensely floral fragrance, any of the parabens or maybe the colors????? that broke me out. Very disappointed in this product. Can't believe they added color to a skincare product.

                  I've been using this moisturizer for about a year now and really love it. My dry/sensitive skin is easily irritated and has finally calmed down since switching up my skin care routine and adding this moisturizer to the mix.

                      A:

                      The Honey Moisturizer utilizes Honey Extract to help brighten and uncover radiance in the skin, however it does not target dark marks or acne scars.
                      We recommend our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times per week to target discoloration from acne scars.

                      The Honey Moisturizer does contain Peanut Oil. Since you struggle with acne, you should opt for an oil free moisturizer. We offer the Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 (Item #: 2209852) which is our go-to moisturizer for acne prone skin.

                    I have combination/oily skin in the summer and bought the kit for that skin type that includes the aloe 15 SPF for the day and the seaweed night moisturizer. I don't really care for the way my skin feels with the seaweed moisturizer and am interested in another moisturizer to use at night. Would this one be good for my skin type?

                      The A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer (Item #: 2209844) is a better option for combination/oily skin. It is a customer favorite "summertime" moisturizer that is lightweight, oil free, and easily absorbed.

                      Our products do not contain an expiration date on the packaging. Rather, they contain a PAO symbol. All of our products are good for a minimum period of 30 months, if unopened. Once the product is opened, it good for the period of time indicated in the PAO (period after opening) symbol.
