      Bought when the store I prefer in my area was out of the SPF 30 oil free moisturizer. I was amazed at how well it moisturizes and provides sun protection, but didn't make me look as 'dewy' as the SPF 30 did. (I realize that dewy isn't a terrible thing, but there were definitely days we crossed over from dewy to shiny.) Nice and light formula. Will continue buying.

        I bought this as a moisturizer with SPF for my oily skin. It works great, but use very little as it is more than enough. Sometimes, I will skip this, and only use toner after cleansing, but very rarely. Love it, but if you feel it is greasy, use less. That would be my recommendation. It lasts a while when compared to facial cleansers, toners, etc.

        Comments about Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17:

        This moisturizer dries down really well and leaves my skin feeling and looking matte. I haven't been able to find another that works so well for me and it's a bonus that it has SPF AND doesn't break me out.

          I use this moisturizer after washing with the MB Enzyme Cleansing Gel and the Cucumber Cleansing Lotion (Toner). My face is typically combo/oily with an increase in oil during the hotter months. This moisturizer is the absolute BEST for giving you hydrated/soft skin while also taming the oil. It does not feel heavy and it soaks in quickly. I have multiple friends who have also jumped on this moisturizer and now use it religiously!

            I love this moisturizer so far. It moisturizes without leaving me feeling greasy. I have oily skin and work in a hot/humid environment. I put this on in the morning and hours later leave work with barely any shine. My sun exposure is limited to the time it takes me to get to my car but thus far, I haven't noticed any new freckles or redness. So far so good.

                  I like this for a moisturizer with spf! Does provide moisture but I believe the spf in it is the thing that causes tiny red bumps on my forehead. When I don't use it daily, they disappear. I recommend only using when going out in the sun and using a regular moisturizer without spf when staying inside or at night

                          Our Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 is a lightweight moisturizer with added sun protection - making it a great option for day time use. Our Oil Free Moisturizer is a basic moisturizer that can be used morning and night on acne prone skin. Both are great options for oily, acne prone skin.

                        Would this moisturizer will work well with the glycolic brightening kit after cleansing and toning in the morning? I'm in need of a moisturizer that can help fade the look of acne scare. Also what would be a good night moisturizer to use in combination with the kit at night? I have oily, acne prone blemished skin. Thank you!

                      • Q:

                        I will be out in the sun almost every day this summer, so I am looking for a good SPF that will go well under my regular primer (hourglass mineral primer) and foundation (urban decay naked skin) that will give me good sun protection and not effect the look of my makeup. Will this work for that? I don't want it to be too heavy & sit on top of my skin. I also looked at the oil free SPF 30, but don't want the added moisturizers, but I would still consider it if it didn't mess up the look of my makeup either. thanks!

                        I got this moisturizer in the acne starter kit. I am usually a bit picky with moisturizers but ive been wanting to try something new. Im a teenager and i have acne prone skin-- would this be the best moisturizer from your line to use? im always worried that the sunscreen will give me zits even though it's non-comedogenic.

                          The Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 is a great option for daily sun protection, and is the lightest weight sun protection product we offer. It is our go-to moisturizer for acne prone skin. If you wanted something for morning and night use that does not contain SPF, our Herbal Hydrating Serum can be used instead.
