Most Helpful Positive Review Pricing but well worth it!
I'm extremely oily so I get "Matte" everything but I recently started to moisturize and it has been process of elimination bc I'll get sweaty or my pores will get clogged it's either heavy or not moisturizing enough but THIS is my new holy grail no sweat no heavy weighed down feeling and my skin feels and looks soft supple and almost glowing
Most Helpful Critical Review Really burns!
I use the seaweed toner which I actuallly love so I thought I would give this a try. I have dry sensitive psoriasis skin and I thought "oh aloe would be nice"...this product burns after putting it on its thick and also makes my face feel more dry. I will just stick to my Clinique Dramatically Different. I learned my lesson if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I bought this when I was 14 because I was obsessed with Mario B. It broke me out so bad. The aloe made me think it would be nice, boy was I wrong. My cystic acne went to atomic cystic acne, I had planets on my face. The ingredients have too much alcohol
Great in combination with moisturizing serum
Kali from Tucson, AZ
I love using this moisturizer with a few drops of the Ordinary's marula oil. That combo keeps my skin hydrated in the super dry Arizona heat. I'm also a big fan of the Avene moisturizers and would recommend this as an alternative to the Rich because it also keeps my skin clear and absorbs well. Will be buying again!
Great for oily skin
Christie from Jacksonville FL
My husband uses this product and it helps moisturize his skin while keeping acne at bay. I would purchase again.
Won't buy again
Amy from Holland, MI
I bought this product specifically for the summer because of the SPF. It does a great job of protecting your skin from the sun but I had an allergic reaction to something in it. I didn't put the product directly on my eyelids but by the end of the day it would make my eyelids swell up and break out in a rash.
If you have sensitive skin, I do not recommend this product.
Absolutely wonderful everyday moisturizer
Monica from Baltimore
use after cleansing
First time buyer
LaruhD from Wendell, NC
I've always had issues looking for a moisturizer that will work with my oily skin and I usually love all of Mario Badescu products but I'm not in love with this moisturizer (I like it). Be careful not to apply too much because then your face will be greasy for the remainder of the day and the product will ball up on your face. Also do not apply around your eye area because then it can cause a stinging sensation to your eyes. I also have some redness to my face and did notice this product did help reduce the redness to my face. It does feel lightweight when applied and my face feels moisturized all day.
I will be testing product against another. Seems fine so far
Kitty from Sierra Vista, AZ
I just started using lotion, but, it is needed in AZ. The small bottle makes the lotion an expensive investment that I do take very serious. I've used another Aloe base moisturizer for years that has had a great effect on my skin, so I'm hoping that this lotion works with continued success. I also bought another moisturizer to try, to see which one is best for my type of problem skin.
I love it
Lissa from KCMO
I love Mario Badescu products. I use this one after my normal cleansing and toning and it leaves my skin feeling moisturized. It does not make my skin feel oily, or greasy, it just feels refreshed and happy. It is so important to moisturize and I can tell how much better my skin is with this skincare regimen. The packaging is also great and I love how they make their bottle caps. It is so easy and helps with not getting too much or too little out. It also lasts for a while. I bought this months ago and it's just now nearing its end.
Great for oily skin
Jackie from Houston, Tx
This is great for people with oily skin. It doesn't overly moisturize. Unfortunately for me I was looking for for something with more moisture.
Tori from Long island, ny
Its just nothing special. I absolutely love this brand, but this just wasn't right for MY skin. I needed more moisture than what i got. Might work for you though!
Not worth the money
Sam from USA
I usually use moisturizer at night. I have oily skin, it was a plus that this moisturizer did not make my skin oily. BUT it did make my skin very dry. Honestly, this moisturizer is not worth the price.
Cinda from Seattle, WA
Wow makes my skin feel great, i have combo oily skin and this doesnt make my skin feel heavy or dry. Very smooth and refreshing feeling.
Fine moisturizer/SPF but broke me out
Anna from New Jersey
I was really excited to try this product as I've had great luck with Mario Badescu and aloe based products. I used it in the morning without changing any other products in my regime and by the next morning I had a few whiteheads, several small bumps on my forehead, and 2 painful under the skin breakouts. Applying this I noticed it felt very greasy and didn't want to sink in. That being said I do think it did a fine job at moisturizing, though it was harder to tell because it left me pretty shiny and seemed to make me more oily than usual throughout the day. The packaging is also pretty annoying because the little tip gets filled with product after usage.
Selena from Temple Texas
I use this everyday after cleansing and toning my face. It works well to keep my face moisturized.
I would buy this again
Sue from Charlotte, NC
Very hydrating and not greasy on my oily skin.
My go to for oily skin!
Becca from Pittsburgh
I've been using this product for a year now and it's absolutely amazing!! I have very oily skin along with rosacea and this has helped my skin tremendously. I won't use any other moisturizer.
Sensitive skin along with being a cruelty free lover!
Skitbrit from Severna park
It's hard for me to find a good cruelty free product. During the summer, I get dry spots on my face I've used other products that were thick in coverage and recently I felt a change was necessary. During the winter my skin is AWFUL! Lucky, I switched to this moisturizer and BAM! Perfection. It's a bit creamy and like a lotion but once it's applied it lays lightly and goes on smooth. I use close to a half of a dime size drop. It doesn't break me out and I have sensitive skin( it's made for it- apply it to a clean face!) I have trouble with products breaking me out.
My sister on the other hand has oily skin and she used this product as well and hasn't had a breakout! I'll be trying other products in this line.
works for my acne prone skin
Allisa from Iowa
only moisturizer ive found that doesn't break me out. moisturizing enough in warm months and i miz in a drop of oil in the winter. Only negative is it does not sit well under makeup and tends to ball up when using some other things on top of it.
Nice & light
Kari from Missouri
Daily use of product, Goes on light & smooth
MStr7 from Madison, WI
This is the most lightweight moisturizer I've ever used. It's not greasy, not sticky, and absorbs into the skin very fast. The added SPF is a huge bonus and there was no unpleasant smell. I would definitely recommend that those with sensitive skin give this a try.
Andrea from Ohio
I tested this on my hand in store, and it seemed rather thick and sunscreen-y scented, but I bought it thinking the scent would go away. I WAS WRONG. I'm taking it back tomorrow bc I cannot stand how strongly it smells. It never even made it one my face so I don't know if it breaks you out.
SMH wayyy to heavy for my oil skin
Lola from Baltimore MD
So I bought this product by the suggestion of an employee (first mistake) and she said that this was really good for people with acne prone skin. I have been struggling with hormonal acne within the past year after turning 30 (I never really struggled with acne throughout my life aside from my teenage. So I was in search of something hydrating as I learned that your skin becomes more oily when you need hydration. I got so embarrassed one day at work as I was talking to a coworker about skin care products and she asked me did I just put something on my face, nope... I was shiny and oily! smh I spent over $20 it so Idk what to do at this point. looking for something else
Hailey from NC
Sadly I have yet to find a moisturizer that's not too much for my oily acne prone skin:( if you have similar problems skip this product and head to the next because this ain't it sis.
Works for my oily skin
Abigail from Colorado
I've been using this product for about a month now and so far I am loving the results. I put it on twice a day after cleaning my skin and using a toner. I have suuuper oily and acne prone skin and have have had terrible luck finding a moisturizer that works for me. This one gives me just the right amount of hydration without leaving me greasy. I have not experienced the bad reactions (i.e. breakouts, rashes, peeling) other reviewers have experienced but I also dont have any allergies so read the ingredients list carefully. I will say if you are looking for a moisturizer that gives you good sun protection I would keep shopping. SPF 15 is a very lame amount of sun protection and I end up using a mineral sun screen after this product anyways. I also agree with the other reviewers about the packaging being kind of annoying especially for the price you pay for the product.
Moisturizes great has its issues
montseG from Austin,TX
I love the moisture it puts back into my face and the SPF 15 is an added bonus. The issues I dislike is the bottles top. The top causes it to dry out so you get this crusty bit of lotion almost every day. The second issue would be that this moisturize piles? I'm not sure if this is how it spelled but when I put it on my skin it leaves little rolls of the moisture. This is even after exfoliating my skin.
