      Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

      Great simple product. I cannot yet speak to the benefits of the Vitamin C but I have normally dry but clear skin with occasional acne. The formula absorbs fast, keeps my skin hydrate and soft with no breakouts as result of it. Small bottle but goes a long way. The bottle design and smell is kind of clinical almost and reminds me of older style products but I personally like it. But if you prefer some sort of floral or fragrant scent, this isn't it. Overall great daily product.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

          My favorite moisturizer of all time. I fell in love with this moisturizer the first time I used it. I've tried many things prior to and after and none come close. It's a great light weight moisturizer but delivers a lot of moisture. Goes on smooth, not greasy, absorbs quick, makes my skin silky soft and calms inflammation in my face, minimizes my excessively large pores. A little goes a long way, if you use too much it may make you feel a little oily later.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Hydro Moisturizer With Vitamin C:

            Over the past year or so, I have been slowly replacing my skin care and make-up items for cruelty free products. I tried several moisturizers that were either too thin or caused an allergic reaction, before finally landed on this one and I love it! I have a mostly "normal" skin type, but my face sometimes gets really dry. This product has worked so well to keep my skin moisturized 24/7!

              Received this moisturizer as a sample, but i like this much better than the oil free one.
              It leaves my skin smoother and not oily at all.
              Really recommended this , the only thing its missing is the SPF, it would be 5 stars , but other than that
              really light daily moisturizer!

                    I started using this with the acne facial cleanser, i could tell immediately after putting this on I was going to like it. It goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly without leaving an oily residue. The moisturizer i was using before this one would make my skin oily in the morning when i wake up and half way thru the day my foundation would be melting off my skin. With this moisturizer my skin and makeup looks wayyy better. Smooth and moisturized without all the grease.

                    • Q:

                      I've been using this Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C for awhile, I like it. Now that is winter I think I need something a little bit heavier. I have dry skin. I am looking for a moisturizer with SPF and then a night cream (or regular moisturizer that will work well for night). I didn't like the Seaweed Night Cream, found it super heavy. The Collagen moisturizer was also heavy but maybe since it is drier it would be ok? I know you have a ton of variety in moisturizers and am looking for a good match.
