Most Helpful Positive Review Favorite skin care product
I've been battling acne and dry spots for months and hadn't found anything that worked for me. I had tried two zit creams from this brand and neither did the trick. I discovered this product while watching a YouTube video and thought I would just give it a try not expecting much. I've been using it for almost 2 weeks and my skin looks SO much better. I apply this morning and night after I wash my face. I put a couple drops all over and then extra on any spots I'm tying to get rid of. When I wake up the spots aren't dry and redness is almost completely gone. This has seriously done the trick for me. I will continue to repurchase this over and over.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not true rosehip oil
This is not true rosehip oil. Shame on me for not reading the ingredients first. Rosehip oil itself is the fifth ingredient on here, and is more water than oil. Wish I'd skipped this and just gotten 100% rosehip oil instead. This stuff isn't bad, but its also nothing special either--totally ignorable.

I assumed (my bad) that this would be mostly rose hip oil-- and maybe some other helpful ingredients. I didn't read the ingredients before purchasing, and I wish I had. I'm not a chemophobe, but I know propylene glycol is not nourishing for the skin, and it's the number one ingredient. The second ingredient is water-- which is not hydrating to the skin. Fillers, like hydrogenated caster oil and glycerin. There are multiple preservatives, including parabens and phenoxyethanol, which can be irritating. All-in-all this product is trash for the skin and has very little in the way of nourishment. I will be returning post-haste.
Soft and plump

I've always used MB products, and normally don't write reviews. My skin is combination and yet feels dry and thirsty. Most times reviews are to good to be true, and decided to buy it because of glowing reviews. I absolutely loved it.
Would not buy this product again
ShaniNyelle from NYC
I have combination skin, but more dry during cold seasons. I use this product twice a day during my morning and nighttime skincare routine. The product left my skin feeling tight and oily at the end of the day. It definitely feels more like a serum than an oil; it moisturizes my face when I put it on, but after a few hours it quickly dries and leaves my skin worn and gross. I wasn't really expecting much from this brand's "rose hip oil" though because it's clearly not %100 rose hip oil, if u actually read the bottle.

Love all the Mario Badescu products and this is no difference. Very nourishing. I use it before a moisturizer.

Received as Sample in a Gift Kit from Kansas
0.14 fluid ounces is the sample size. Tiny!
I have used other Mario Badescu Products and liked them but never to the point of being overly impressed.
This is a game changer! My skin felt like a rose petal I am not kidding! I have dry sensitive skin and was expecting this to burn or at least tingle but it is so soothing. The first time I tried it was before I went to bed and the next morning I couldn't believe how soft my cheeks were.
It's been three days now I've used it morning and night almost ran out. Trust me it will be purchased before this little tiny bottle runs out.
Rose hip oil
Lupe from California
It is what it says to be or more very nourishing to my face the product blends like a dream your face in the morning it's soft and dewey and not dry at all the only suggestion I have is to wear it at night not during the day just at night is perfect and I had very dry skin
On my fourth bottle
Amanda from Illinois
Absolutely positively my favorite product from Mario Badescu. This is so moisturizing without being oily and it goes into your skin so easily. I have extremely sensitive skin and this does not bother it at all and feels amazing on my skin. Are use a lot of products admittedly, but this is always a staple
I love this oil!
Hannah from Omaha
I really love this oil. It's hydrating and nourishing, but not too heavy and absorbs quickly. It makes my face so smooth, and helps even out my complexion. Amazing!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way this makes my skin feel!!
makeuplover16 from Alabama
I use this product after I wash my face with either the acne facial cleanser or the glycolic foaming cleanser. Then I do the rose water and witch hazel toner. I follow with this, and then the honey moisturizer. Then I do one of the facial mists depending on time of day. I do this twice a day, morning before makeup, and then at night after I take it off.
holy grail!!! i cannot live without this!!
Ana from Houston,TX
i haven't used this in a month and my skin misses it so much!!! i have dry skin. sometimes i get dry patches and redness around my nose and cheeks, this is the only thing that will save my skin! i love it!!! have used it over 2 years! I recently tried the ordinary brand one and it did absolutely nothing to my skin!
Brooke from Missouri
I recieved a sample size as a gift with purchase. As I have oily skin on my face, I initially planned to give it away, however I Tend to have drier more sensetive skin on my neck/chest and decided to give it a try. I had planned Breast Augmentation on 7/23 and started using this about a week prior to improve elasticity ( a little goes a long way!). I have continued to use it 2x daily(not directly on incisions!) since. My Dr was extremely pleased with how my skin was still soft and did not feel dry or overly stretched! When I told him what I was using he told me to keep using it and nurse stated she will be adding this to their list of recommended pre/post op skin care. once incisions are completely healed will also be using this to aid in minimizing risk of scarring. I'm planning to purchase full size and this will now be a permenent part of my daily skin care!! Do your skin a favor and try this product!
Can't live without
Kim from Houston
If you have dry skin! This is for you! I can't live without it!
Great for oily skin!
Maddy from Oregon
I have oily skin and have a hard time finding something moisturizing that won't clog my pores. So far this nourishing oil has been a great addition to my skin care routine! My skin doesn't seem to get as oily because it's getting the moisturizer it needs. If you plan on purchasing remember a little goes a very very long ways. I usually only use two small drops on my entire face.
Love it so far.
Audie from North Carolina
I read about this oil in a magazine so I thought I would give it a try. I was helped by a very sweet girl at our local store. She said she used it for her own dry skin and loves it. I'm beginning to love it also. Really helping so far.
lasts all day!
Alix Lola from New York, NY
I have very dry cheeks and moisturizers don't last all day on me. I decided to try this oil after a favorite beauty YouTuber recommended it and I saw it was half off. I was hesitant to use it for a while because I figured it smelled of roses, a scent I don't like. I finally tried it in the winter when my cheeks were crying out for hydration and was pleasantly surprised -- there is no rose scent, it works well under makeup (I apply it on my clean skin then put my moisturizer on top) and the hydration lasts all day! That's what makes this oil different than a lot of other hydrating products I've tried -- the hydration lasts all day! Very pleased and recommend. It goes on sale every now and then, so good time to stock up!
Jessica from Ohio
I used the product for roughly a week and initially I loved it, it didn't feel oily and was very light weight on the skin. After a week of using it I started to notice a reaction on my skin with red itchy dry patches.
Val from California
I have combination skin and I love this product. It doesn't make me oily, just hydrated. I will forever purchase this product
Skin Care Obsessed from Beckley, WV
I have struggled with combination/oily skin my whole life and I've tried many products which failed to address my entire face. I started using this daily about 8 months ago, as well as other products from this line, and my skin has never looked better. I no longer have to wear makeup to cover redness, acne scars or uneven tones. I feel like my skin has aged backward by 10 years and it doesn't require a lot of time or effort. This facial oil, the vitamin c serum, witch hazel and rosewater toner, and the seaweed night cream have seemingly been the perfect daily routine for my skin. Although, be sure not to overuse the vitamin c serum or use it incorrectly as it can cause irritation when used before sun exposure or too often.

Received as a free sample, immediately noticed a difference in my skin. Moisturizing but not oily for sensitive combo skin, helps reduce appearance acne scarring!
Rose from VA
I love using the Vitamin C Serum and was looking for a cheaper alternative. I absolutely love this product! I wear it under my daily moisturizer and it leaves my skin glowing. I have really dry skin around my lips and it always leaves these areas very hydrated. I am so happy with this purchase!
Good for combination skin!
Emily from Omaha, NE
I have a very oily T-zone but also get dry patches because of my topical acne meds. I incorporate this (4-6 drops) into my skincare routine 3-4 days a week, usually in the mornings after cleansing & before moisturizing. It leaves my skin feeling SO soft, plump, and moisturized without leaving me over oily. Would recommend again and again! It seems pricey, but the bottle lasts a long time.
Best Face Oil for Oily Skin
Leeautumn from Fresno
I've been using this for almost a year now. I have oily and dry skin around my T zone and this works out perfectly. I have a little bit of acne here and there but not too chaotic. A little goes a long way so be careful with it. It's helped clear my acne and leave my skin moisturized.
It'll be my 3rd bottle buying it and I've got my sister hooked on it. She suffers from really bad acne and has grown to love it and has seen improvements.
Overall: I recommend
Paul from TX
For my dry skin, this product ensures that I will have a hydrated face all day long. I am not prone to acne so I haven't had any breakouts like others. This bottle will last me a long time!
Megan from Indy
I've never had acne really and this made me break out so bad, especially on my forehead. DO NOT BUY.
Savannah from Phoenix, AZ
I used to always have really dry flaky skin until I started using this product and it helped resolve the issue. Really helps since it really cold out! I use it 1 time a day In the morning and it keeps my face smooth and clean.
