Rated 4.25 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent value prestige night cream
This is an amazing night cream. I have mature skin, and I felt my skin was revitalized the next morning. I love the scent, and it absorbs quickly for me. I'v been using it nightly for 10 days, and have seen a difference in my skin. Less lines, and plumped up. It's a great value compared to other prestige brands. A little goes a long way. This is my new favorite night cream.
Most Helpful Critical Review Clogged my pores!
I received this as a sample in the Mario Badescu Combination/Oily skin kit. I absolutely loved the texture and how my skin looked and felt when I woke up. After the sample ran out in 3 days, I went out and bought the full size. My high hopes were dashed quickly as I started noticing my pores clogging and tiny white bumps (comedones) popping up all over my face. I then researched each ingredient and sure enough, the 3rd ingredient is Isopropyl Myristate. This ingredient has a rating of 5 the HIGHEST rating on the Comedogenic scale (of things that clog your pores). I wonder how an ingredient such as this be put in a product meant for oily skinned people when traditionally oily skinned people have larger that normal pores which are highly prone to being clogged. I have since bought and returned quite a few products from Mario's line that contained questionable and pore clogging ingredients.

I've been using this cream maybe a week and love how I wake up with super soft and getting there to be flawless skin .
Djc from Tucson Az
This product did give me more moisture to my skin. No irritation or redness. Didn't break out.
Great nighttime moisturizer
Sherry S from Michigan
Love how this feels on your skin after washing at night! Highly recommend
Kewpieghost from Orlando
This is one of my favorite night creams. Not only does it make my skin soft but I have an incredible glow when I wake up! I love this product!
HG night cream
May from Ca
I've repurchased this about 6x now. I always come back. So good for combo dry skin .. so hydrating with no oils .
It works, but...
darlingkt from North Carolina
It does work how it says! But I'm not too impressed with the ingredients list. It seems to me to have far more alcohol and added fragrance in it than it actually needs. But it does work well on my combo oily/dry skin that is sensitive and has rosacea. I am going to be trying another brand's night cream though that has higher levels of collagen and way less alcohol and almost no fragrance added instead when I need a restock. Doubt I'll be coming back to this one.
Favorite night cream
Beth from Wisconsin
This is my favorite night cream. I put it on last after my nightly facial routine. I prefer pump bottles but this cream is too thick for a pump. It's a green, silky, high quality texture that smells great. A little goes a long way. It's very thick and tends to smooth out farther once it's warmed on your skin.
This helps keep my skin moisturized all the winter. If I am not going anywhere I sometimes wear this during the day on winter weekends.
Favorite Bedtime Cream
DMS0309 from Michigan
I first tried this from a sample I received and after that I was hooked. I've now been using it for 3 years and I love it. It makes my skin feel so soft and dewy, not greasy feeling at all. Plus I love that the company doesn't test on animals :)
I love this night cream
Mase from Marietta
Lasts all night
This product is absolute garbage
netxnic from Chesapeake, Virginia
Not good for combo, oily, and acne prone skin. Isopropyl myristate is the third ingredient listed, that stuff is HIGHLY comedogenic. Also full of parabens and dye... waste of money for a supbar product.
Made my rosacea flare up. Fine for neck/chest
Maggipoo from Fl
I had read that it was a dupe for La Mer, but it isn't very close at all. It made my rosacea flare up, but I've been using it for my neck and chest and it works very well for that.
Bad for combo oily skin
Hars from NJ, USA
I've given several MB products a try, and this has got to be one of the worst and most damaging ones.
Silky Smooth Skin Overnight!
Takes Care of Her Skin at Night from Minneapolis, MN
This is lovely and lightweight. I enjoy that it isn't too heavy, but even though it is a lighter cream I can tell it is very moisturizing. I wake up with soft, silky skin and I love that! I prefer this type of cream over a heavy one.
Caused breakouts and hyperpigmentation
Becky from Georgia
While using this product, I ended up with more breakouts than usual and hyperpigmentation. I gave it a few weeks before determining it was from this product and immediately stopped use. Even besides this, the product was very thick and greasy on my skin, but I would still wake up with dry skin.
Great for oily skin
Christie from Jacksonville FL
I have very oily skin and if you do not use a lot of this product, it will not break you out. I haven't seen a crazy difference in my skin so I will be using a different product when this runs out.
Bughuul from Virginia Beach
I had really high hopes for this product but I was so disappointed. It left my skin feeling oily like it never really absorbed. But the real reason why I hate this stuff is the smell. The god awful smell. It's like play doh mixed with flowers mixed with old lady. It never went away. It gave me a headache so I had to wipe it off and use an old moisturizer. I'm returning this for a new night cream.
Ericka from Pensacola
Heavy on the face and seems to have clogged my pores. Plus the smell is horrible and strong. All the products I've tried of this brand smell bad.😭
Can't go without
Mari from Orlando, Fl
I use every evening on freshly clean skin, before bed. Apply a small amount on my neck w/ upward strokes and small amount on my face (not around eyes).
The Good Stuff
CJ from NC
I use this day and night.... just be sure to use an SPF if for day use too.... it calms my skin and also I believe takes redness out and evens out my skin tone during my morning routine before make up application....
A good product
CharlieAnn from Bossier City, LA
I love this product. I was worried that it would leave my face oily, but it didn't. It does have an odor but it's not strong, and it's not perfumey. It also doesn't aggravate my acne. I would buy it again.
Allergic reaction - AWFUL product
AJ from Los Angeles
I purchased this after reading it was a cheap dupe for la mer. It is absolutely not!!!! I love the la mer creams they are super nice on the skin and hydrating. This was the worst thing I've ever put on my face.
It's green, smells gross and is THICK! Put it on my skin and it wouldn't sink in at all, if you rub it it becomes white and thicker. Woke up in the morning with red rash on my face, bumps and almost small blisters across my forehead and cheeks.
I'm a skin care junkie, practice really good skin care routines and read up on ingredients. I was very surprised this was so very bad. Waste of money and takes a while for skin to get back to normal.
Better products out there and in no way, shape or form is this a dupe for La Mer!
not good for normal and oily skin
Roo from New Jersey
I bought this bc I read some great things about it someone even made this a dupe for La Mer HA. It's dyed green to give it the seaweed look and doesn't have a refreshing feel...it's a little goopy and even feels oily to the touch. Luckily I was able to return this and an associate at Ulta guided me towards a Clinique face cream.
Didn't workout for me...my skin felt suffocated, oily and well...not good.
Love This Stuff!!
LuvSnoop42 from DFW, Texas
I use this at night and wake with noticeably softer skin.
Jennifer from TX
I love this night cream! I wanted something to use at night along with my usual Vitamin E oil and this is just what I needed. It's so soothing and calms any redness I may have. I will definitely be using this for a while.
Not for oily skin
Cris from Florida
Originally I was thinking about giving 1 star, but this product seems to be very good, however, doesn't work with oily skin. It made my skin look very greasy and made me break out 😭
