I have combo skin with an oily t-zone prone to occasional breakouts and this moisturizer is great.
Keeps my cheeks moisturized while my t-zone balanced. It soaks right in the skin and never feels greasy like most products on the market.
I use this along with the acne cleanser to keep my skin clear and fresh. :

Perfect for use with acne products
I'm currently using a prescription topical antibiotic/benzoyl peroxide cream along with my favorite Mario Badescu products as well and this is the only moisturizer I have found that reduces flaking and dullness created by the super-drying prescription products. I use it with the Acne Cleanser and the Special Cleansing Lotion, and my skin is FINALLY starting to look and feel dramatically different in two weeks after suffering for months with unsightly and humiliating acne. It's not 100% back to normal yet, but it would be so much worse if I hadn't starting using Mario products. This moisturizer is a great product to use while getting my skin back on track.

I first noticed this moisturizer in the samples they send when you order a product. It made my skin look and feel pretty smooth. I have combo skin and it made parts of my face that are normally dry have an amazing texture. I now use the Acne Facial Cleanser, Special Cucumber Lotion and the A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer as part of my daily routine and my skin has never felt better.

The best yet!
I absolutely love this moisturizer. It makes my skin feel so soft, and it is so light. It does not feel like it is clogging up my skin as I put it on! Also, I put it on before I put on my makeup and I find that my make up looks much better and stays on my face longer. I just love love love it!

the perfect moisture
I constantly break out, but while my T-zone area is very oily, the rest of my face is dry and often gets flaky. I've tried many brands of oil-free moisturizers, but they didn't deliver the moisture I wanted. This moisturizer is my savior - my skin abosrbs the moisture the moment I smooth it on. My skin feels so moist and nourished without feeling or looking oily. My oily shine has become more under control, my skin looks and feels better and softer, and it does not aggravate my breakouts. I'm also using other products from MB, and I should say that years of search for the right products for my skin has come to a close! I love MB products!

This is the ONLY moisturizer that ive found that truly moisturizes. I've tried so many that go on nicely, but then my skin feels dry in ten minutes. this has no scent or weird texture and it makes my skin perfect before applying makeup. This is truly amazing stuff and everyone should use it!

I really like this moisturizer. It absorbs well, and is not greasy. It leaves my skin nice and smooth. It has wonderful ingredients with various benefits! I do wish it had spf.

I am new to using the Mario Badescu products, but I've fallen in love with them! I've only been using the AHA and ceramide moisturizer for a week, but what a difference! My skin is super soft and glowing! This product really helps with my ance and the keratosis pilaris I have along my jaw line. It gives my skin the perfect moisturization balance that it needs! A great product for anyone!

A moisturizer perfect for acne
This is the only moisturizer that actually moisturizers but also helps my acne. Using other products that dried out my skin only made my oily breakout skin worse. I was skeptical at first with it's texture but it actually wasn't oily. It smells great and helps bring my face a glow. It works great with the recommended line for me - acne cleanser, special "c" lotion, and buffering lotion. My boyfriend keeps telling me that I look great and comments on the freshness of my face!

Provides real moisture
After being introduced to this product and only using it at night (while using the oil free moisturizer with SPF 17 during the day), I am now going to use this product both day and night. It hydrates my skin, gives it a beautiful glow, lightens old acne scars (via the lemon extract), and softens the deep wrinkle that I have on my forehead. An excellent product!
