      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.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

        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.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Honey Moisturizer:

              It's winter time here in New England and this lotion might not cut it for me. However, it does not add any breakouts and does not feel greasy at all. I have found myself having to spray on aloe vera after applying this lotion. It absorbs very quickly but does not last long. I would probably benefit from this more in the warmer months except it doesn't offer any sun protection...

                  I have incredibly dry and sensitive skin. I mean REALLY DRY. I use this stuff every single morning after I wash my face, before I put my makeup on. It keeps my face moisturizered all day and into the night. It has a good smell, too! Love it. I also have the buttermilk moisturizer as well. It doesn't have a smell, and it's a tab bit lighter. Love them both. They both work the same for me! I only bought the honey one because I like the scent.

                      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.
