After cleansing and toning, apply daily all over face before sun exposure, avoiding the eye area. Re-apply frequently to maintain protection and after perspiring or swimming. May be used under makeup or alone. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water.

      I am a creature of habit. There was a moisturizer I was using by the Ulta brand that was discontinued so I was scrambling to find one that works. I tried this one and it works amazing. It also layers well with other products you may use like serums etc.

      This product at first worked really well. After about 3 days of using it, I started noticing blemishes (I'm not Acne prone). These blemishes were red and they burned really bad. Touching my face was so painful and trying other moisturizers were painful while all this was happening. I went through this for about 4+ days and eventually these blemishes turned into try spots....so basically my MOISTURIZER turned my skin DRY. Do not buy!

      disappointed

      By Jena

      from CT

      Comments about Mario Badescu The Moisture Magnet SPF 15:

      I had high hopes for this moisturizer. After checking the ingredients on ALL of Mario Badescu's moisturizers I found that this and the Honey one were least likely to aggravate my hormonal acne which I had just recently cleared up. I was experiencing dry skin from a combination of New England winter and the castille soap I've been using to wash my face so I was looking for a daytime moisturizer, sadly this was not the one for me. After 3 uses I woke up with 5 giant blemishes! I had also purchased the Drying Lotion and that did NOTHING to clear up or dry out the blemishes. while this moisturizer helped with the dryness it made me break out so I would not recommend.

              Best moisturizer I've ever used. If Mario Badescu got rid of this product my heart would be broken. If I go a day without using this my skin suffers (literally).

              To all who read this, don't even question it. Just buy it.

                • Q:

                  I am trying to decide between this moisturizer and the Honey moisturizer. I am 35, i have sensitive skin and suffer from hormonal acne. I use a homemade essential oil serum in the evening to moisturize but i am looking for something to use during the day. I live in the north east and during the winter months my skin has gotten very dry in certain spots from my acne wash and treatment. I looked at all your other moisturizers and most of them seem to contain Isopropyl Myristate which is an irritant and also causes acne so i would like to steer clear of that. Thank you.

                    A:

                    It would depend on if you wanted a moisturizer that contains sunscreen. The Moisture Magnet SPF 15 contains daily sun protection and should only be used for day time. This will help hydrate and soften the skin. Our Honey Moisturizer can be used morning and night and will help brighten and hydrate.

                    A:

                    If you are looking for a day time SPF, the Moisture Magnet SPF 15 is a great option for dry skin! Since the Honey Moisturizer does not contain SPF, we suggest this either at night or before a separate SPF.

                  I use the buttermilk moisturizer and since I will be adding a retinoid into my skincare, I would to told to use add an spf into my routine in the morning. I am biracial, caramel skin with golden undertones with Dry skin that I get less than three hormonal acne bumps every couple of months. I wouldn't say my skin is combo/dry but when I periodically get bumps they are on one spot on my forehead and right between my eyebrows. Would this be a great moisturizer?

                • Q:

                  I am looking for moisturizers for dry/combination skin, both a day moisturizer with SPF and a night cream. I do have breakouts in the T-zone occasionally but that is very rare, maybe 4 times a year or so. In the winter my skin is especially dry. I tried the Collagen moisturizer with SPF and found it to be very heavy and it felt like my skin didn't breathe at all. Maybe I was using too much? Would Moisture Magnet be a better fit? I am looking for breathable moisture.

                  Also I tried the Seaweed Night Cream but didn't really see any benefits, it also felt heavy. I was thinking of trying the Vitamin C serum to help with my discoloration sun damage freckles with a night cream on top that fights the environmental damage that happens during the day. Any advice is greatly appreciated. There are a lot of choices in this line.

                  I am confused on choosing between this product or the collagen moisturizer with spf. I am in my early 40s with fairly smooth skin, just a few fine lines. I live in Florida where the humidity and solar rays are intense, so I am only interested in products with spf. Which of these two will deliver the best antiaging benefits? Thanks
