          This didn't work for me, I'm thinking of returning it. It is super greasy and seems to sit on top of my skin, it doesn't absorb.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Protein Night Cream:

                I would put this on my face every night after my shower. I could only do it for a few nights and had to throw it away. It smells like crayons, and feels waxy and thick on your hands. It doesn't spread well. I literally had to drag my hands across my face, stretching my skin, just to make sure it got it all over my face. If you applied too much, thinking it wouldn't be enough, it felt absolutely disgusting on your face. I couldn't go to sleep the 3rd night I used it and had to get up and wash it off, because my face made me feel like I hadn't bathed in days. In the mornings, it was so hard to get off. I use a Murad cream face wash and a Murad exfoliator. I had to use both just to try and get it off, and it still felt I had on residue from the cream. Mario, ya let me down!

                  Gave it a chance since i wanted to try different skin care products that werent so pricey, my skin is combination-oily and this didn't give me enough moisturization. The next day my face did feel plumped but it wasnt enough.

                    Does a great job for the cost.it has a great feel and texture, but doesn't absorb quickly.

                      I want to love this so badly. I do love the consistency- it's crisco-y as some described but also velvety. In a night cream I like that, I want to feel extremely moisturized. The next morning my skin was so soft and looked pretty good. The only thing is I had little red pimples on my cheeks the next morning, so I think its just too thick for my sensitive skin. I've been using vanicream and embryloisse, but want to find something with more nutrients.

                          Is this a retinoid cream? It says that it contains vitamin A, but does that mean that it has retinol in it?

                            A:

                            Retinol is used in a variety of skincare preparations as an exfoliant to stimulate cell turnover in your skin. Products with retinol help you to look younger because retinol stimulates collagen fiber growth. While retinyl palmitate (Vitamin A) is an earlier form of retinol, it does not have the same effects. Instead, retinyl palmitate can be effective in boosting collagen fiber production in your skin, which can help you look younger. However, retinyl palmitate does not have the same exfoliating effects as retinol.
