Comments about Mario Badescu Kera Moisturizer:

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

    Comments about Mario Badescu Kera Moisturizer:

    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!

        Best Uses

          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.

              Comments about Mario Badescu Kera Moisturizer:

              I used this product in the morning and at night. I found it to be very heavy and oily. It does not absorb well into your skin and it leaves your face looking very shiny. I regret not returning it after attempting to give it a shot for an entire week. It's still sitting in my bathroom unused. I now only use this as a last resort. Will not buy this moisturizer again.

                I am very oily with dry patches. I put this moisturizer on at night due to it being very heavy. It doesn't absorb into the skin quickly therefore is a little sticky at night, but not enough that it bothers me. It wouldn't go well for under your makeup unless you like a really dewy look

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Kera Moisturizer:

                  I was using the Aloe Moisturizer from Mario Bodescu for years. But after I moved to Colorado my skin was begging for more moisture so I switched to this one which seemed to be the best for dry skin. I have never receieved more compliments on my skin. It feels soft and moisturized all the time without being too greasy. But honestly, I hate the smell of it. I bought the rosewater spray and just spray it right on top and I don't even notice it anymore, plus you get the extra moisture! All in all, this product saved my skin.

                        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.
