Most Helpful Positive Review Wow
In love with this stuff! It might seem a little too rich at first, but give your skin a week or 2 to adjust to change. I have combination skin so I get pretty oily in my t-zone, but this makes me look moisturized and plump rather than oily (there is a difference). I also use it in the day time, but only because I didn't feel like buying 2 moisturizers.
Most Helpful Critical Review Too heavy
For how thick this goes on, I was hoping it would moisturize my skin more than it does. Don't get me wrong, it does a good job, I was just hoping for a little more.
For instance, I'll use it at night, and then wash it off in the morning. After washing, my face will still feel a bit tight/dry. I feel for the thickness, my face should be hydrated enough to handle a washing.
**Seriously, this stuff is thick. I would suggest warming it up in your hands, or mixing it with something before applying so you don't tug on your skin too much. I mix it with their Rose Hips Nourishing Oil to make it easier to apply.**
It will leave you very greasy, and will sit on your face, as it doesn't sink in well. Expect to rub some off on your pillow if you use it before bed. I've even tried putting it on 2-3 hours before sleeping, and it's still just sitting there.
It gets the job done, but I don't think it's worth looking and feeling like a greased up turkey.

I bought this product a while ago and im not sure if ive had any problems with it until now. I just used this product yesterday after not using it for a long period of time. My skin became very sensitive after applying this product. I woke up this morning with puffiness, swelling, and redness on my eyelids and irritated skin:(
Been buying this product for years and love it

Its great on my skin

I liked it at first. I have eczema and dry skin. After about a week in it flared up my eczema even more and now I have red patches all across my forehead and temples. I think bc it was so greasy it didn't absorb well causing my skin to feel itchy
Janelle from Burbank, CA
I bought this as a night-time face cream and it is way too thick.
Im just using it as an eye cream now.
love it so far
KM from San Jacinto
needed a night cream for my combination skin and after a week of nightly use I am happy with it. it's very thick but as it warms up on your face it kind of melts into your skin. it's thick but not heavy, as in it absorbs well. I use it combined with Acure blue tansy oil.
Very moisture rich
Rainy from Montana
I used this product while on a strong acne medication, my skin was extremely dry and sensitive. This was the best product, it doesn't have any harsh chemicals or fragrances that burned and it is a very powerful hydrating cream. I love it and still use it for night cream after washing my face every night. Has never caused a breakout. :) I love all of MB's products!
Lala from Keller
This is just what I needed! Super creamy, super hydrating!! Great product with a great price. Just a small amount goes along way and you can definitely feel the difference in 1 use.
best night cream I have EVER used.
Karinna M from Cape Cod, Massachusetts
This night cream is absolutely amazing. I am 19, and for years I have been searching for a night cream that will actually help my dry skin. While I have definitely found a few that work, this one blows all of them out of the water. I slather my face in this at night, and while yes it is oily, that's kind of the point of the cream... to hydrate your skin. I have noticed such a difference in the quality and texture of my skin. It is so smooth because of this cream. Another thing I would like to point out is an issue I have always had with other creams and that is going to bed with the cream on and it feeling fine. But then waking up to dry skin. With this product, I wake up feeling totally hydrated. I love it so much and will 100% be buying again. (Its also pretty cheap :))
note: I would definitely not use this under makeup as it is too rich for makeup application. I would recommend a lighter day cream by this brand. I use the aloe moisturizer with SPF 15 and it works great.
Helped my dry skin so much!

Got this on accident while I meant to grab another product. I'm so pleased though! My skin has been SO dry lately and I've really been struggling to find the right product to help. Happy accident :)
Bye dry skin
Coral from San Antonio Texas
This is amazing for my dry skin. That sales person at Ulta hit the mark with this one once I explain what I wanted.
Dawny from Newark, DE
I just used this product for the first time tonight and it is awful! My skin is really dry and when moisturizers are to greasy or thick for everyone else, my skin sucks it right up, but not with this one. I used very little and it is just sitting on my face. My hands are greasy from trying to push it into my face. I'm going to have to rewash my face. It smells like my moms face and neck cream from the 80s. Definitely will be returning tomorrow!
Skully from Visalia California
I bought this cream thinking it was good because Mario Badescu is a really natural and cruelty free brand, but this was absolutely greasy and didn't absorb in my face, unfortunately I didn't even have to use it I had to return it since I tried it once and was enough to know that wasn't going to work for me, I hope that the company takes care of that.
Jess from Buffalo
In the winter, my skin gets very dry in the morning and at night, but oily during the day. Ever since I started using this every night, my skin is not dry at all! I wake up with glowing and hydrated skin!
The best night cream I've ever used, I don't think I can ev
Sonya from Olympia wa
I use it at night but also on the days my skin feels very dry .... perfect moisturizer
Athena from Raleigh, NC
I love love this product. It does a fantastic job of moisturizering my skin at night. The only con is that it does tend to stay on the surface of the skin as well as absorb into the skin. I tend to not touch my face after I've applied.
So far so good
Tina from Oxnard ca
I've only had it for a few weeks and I use it everyday so far it has helped keep my skin feel nourished only bad thing is that is does take awhile to sink into the skin
Does the job

I have been using this product for a few years. It works great. It suits my sensitive skin. Price just right. Better than the expensive brands.
Rebecca from Southern, Ohio
Yeah it's thick, it's supposed to be coz it's a night cream. It doesn't clog my pores. I'm 30 (I get mistaken for a kid tho) and I've noticed a huge difference in my skin and I'm not even half way through the jar. Can't put my finger on it. It has improved tone, texture, pores and gives a nice glow. I've used less foundation and switched to just a tinted moisturizer. I want to try more from this brand!
partlycloudy from nj
I really like this cream and find it effective, but I don't use it as directed. first, I have relatively normal skin with minor breakouts. this cream is THICK and honestly after putting it on my face does feel a little greasy, but it's the best kind of greasy. I only use this cream on the 2-3 nights per week that I exfoliate, not much is needed, and I warm it up with my finger tips first so it applies smoothly. my face is then smoothed, plumped, and hydrated. if used everyday I think it would be too much, but this way is an absolute win for me for that added boost.
Parabens, alcohol, petrolatum oh my...
KJ from Texas
Ingredients are so harmful long term I don't see how it could actually do anything except speed aging.
Not for me.
emilyp from San Carlos, CA
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.
Love this product!

I wake up with soft and smooth skin after applying this the night before.
Katee from Nashville, TN
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!
Winter skin beware

Great night cream! It is super moisturizing and my skin looks and feel great in the morning.
not for me
MaKarla from Miami Fl
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.
