      Comments about Mario Badescu Kera Moisturizer:

      Read the reviews and seemed like the perfect fit for my skin type- dry and sensitive. Sadly I was wrong, shortly after using the product I already knew I was not a fan but kept using it anyway to give it a fair shot. After prolonged use I started to develop bumps and breakouts. I thought it was the something else I was using but after eliminating this moisturizer my skin calmed back down. Had to return it.

          I was experiencing dry, flaky skin. I had tried a couple of products but nothing was helping. I tried this, and I haven't had any flaking since! My skin loves it! I use it after the shower, daily. There's not really any scent, which I appreciate. I'll be buying this again, for sure!

            I love this product! I apply it at night before bed after cleansing and it moisturizes very well. In the morning I wake up to a dewy face! Who could ask for more. The applicator is really easy to use and great for traveling. I have combination skin so I don't need anything insanely hydrating. For me it's the perfect in between

              I have extremely sensitive skin and eyes. My skin gets really hot and bright red and my eyes burn with a lot of prdoucts. It's winter so my whole face is very dry. I have been using this product (and the kerotoplast cream soap and keratoplast cleansing lotion) for 2 weeks and i love them all! My skin and eyes are not irritated and my face feels smooth and hydrated not stripped of moisturizer...I dont have to immediately rush to apply moisturizer like i use to!

                    Comments about Mario Badescu Kera Moisturizer:

                    This product was a really big let down. I chose this moisturizer when I wanted something to brighten up and moisturize my complexion. I used it in conjunction with a high quality face wash and toner. The product was greasy on my skin and did not absorb well. Even though it appeared heavy, I still felt areas that of dryness- particularly near my chin and mouth. I opted to se it for a week because I wanted to give it an honest try. Within that week, I had gone through so much product it wasn't returnable. I now have more clogged pores and blackheads and breakouts than ever.

                      I have very sensitive skin and get redness on my cheeks, nose and chin. I tried this product and it seems a bit heavy, didn't really help with the redness at all. I would love to stay with this brand as I really like the ingredients used and that it's cruelty free. What other daytime moisturizer would you recommend?

                        Hello and thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear that the Kera Moisturizer did not agree with you. It is a richer formulation and is not agreeing with your combination skin. I would suggest our Aloe Moisturizer SPF 15. It is the heaviest of our oil free moisturizers and contains aloe for soothing hydration.

                        Kera Moisturizer is not intended to treat rosacea, but the product formulation is one that we generally find is frequently used by those who do have rosacea and other skin sensitivities.
