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.

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 😭
Hydrating and heavy
Amanda from Illinois
Don't get me wrong I love this moisturizer/night cream. On the days I use a lot more stripping or drying products (retinol, salicylic acid, resurfacing) this is a life saver. This is definitely, however, a heavier more extreme moisturizer in my opinion. I do actually like the scent even though some are saying they don't. But I will say if you use this often I have noticed that it does clog my pores a little bit but just use it sparingly when needed, I will say!
Anne from VA
this cream didn't really do anything for me. it left a greasy residue on my skin and when I woke up in the morning, I washed away the residue and my skin was the same as before
Lauren from TN
Made my skin very greasy and clogged my pores
Great Night Cream
Nicole from CA
I like this night cream. It's not oily and definitely hydrates my skin but because of that my skin is oily in the AM which is not a problem because I also see smoother skin
NOT FOR OILY SKIN
Amy from Jacksonville, FL
I know the description says oil-free but this product is thick, heavy and greasy. If you have very dry skin then I think this would work well for you. I have very oily skin and this made my skin breakout. :(
My new favorite night cream/moisturizer
Lady T from Rialto CA
I use it daily as a moisturizer. It really helps under my mask to keep my skin from drying out
For Normal/Dry Skin!!!
Glendeetz from Irvine, CA
The description says this is okay for oily/combination skin as well, but I would have to wholly disagree. I have dry skin and my boyfriend has combination, and it worked drastically different on both of our skin types. For my dry skin, I thought it felt super silky upon application. I ONLY used this at night and definitely felt like my skin was moisturized, hydrated, and plumped, but I did not like the smell at all. I did not look forward to using this at night because of the smell. Used up my sample size, but I would not re-purchase.
Favorite Night Cream
Chels from Glendale
I've used this for a long time, and my face loves it.
Madie from ..
It's so smooth, and makes my face so soft. The reason I gave it 4 stars is it leaves my face looking a bit green. It doesn't matter because it's a night cream (you go to bed after) but it's something to note.
