I LOVE this moisturizer. Would never buy another moisturizer again. I have oily skin and it truly helps to control the oil on my face. My face does not look oily at all at the end of the day!!! On drawback is that there is no SPF luckily, I have spf in my makeup. I tried the Oil Free SPF moisturizer to compare and that moisturizer made my face oily and made me breakout. I am sticking with this moisturizer! It makes your skin super soft without the oily residue. Highly recommend!

GREAT FOR MY OILY COMBO SKIN
i really loved how it kept me oil free for hours because my nose and forehead area seem to just stay shiny no matter what but not with this product. my skin is nice and matte but still very moisturized. love it!

This is one of the best moisturizers I have ever used! Calms my skin, rarely have breakouts anymore I feel like it protects my skin it absorbs very well. No shine throughout the day!

This is a great moisturizer because it actually absorbs really well. My skin feels soft and smooth but I don't feel like I need to use blotting papers 3 times a day! It doesn't make me break out and it actually makes my skin look better. My ONLY complaint is that it does not have an SPF, which means I have to apply a powder one. I wish they would create a companion product to this with SPF like they did with the Oil Free Moisturizer.

Amazing! The only grease-cutting moisturizer that doesn't cut more of the skin's natural moisture. This moisturizer leaves you with a nice matte complexion without looking parched and you get a significant redness reduction with the first application.

Using this product since 1999!
For years I was trying to find a moisturizer to help me with my combination, yet very sensitive skin. I spent tons of money on everything that said it would "help," but nothing ever did. One day I was walking by the NYC store/spa and happened upon this diamond. I will use this moisturizer for the rest of my life. Thank you Mario!

This product works great! I have not had any breakouts since I have started using it (about 2 months ago). It keeps shine under control- without feeling heavy!

This moisturizer is perfect for people with acne. It makes skin feel comfortable after using acne products, and it moisturizes without clogging pores! After using this, my skin's redness is gone, and my skin has an even tone. It makes makeup application flawless, but I don't even have to wear makeup too often, since my skin is more evenly toned. I recommend this to anyone with problem skin. I even use it in the summer, without experiencing breakouts!

I agree, the BEST oil free moisturizer!
After trying tons of different moisturizers, this one absolutely WORKS! I was most recently using Arbonne and Proactiv and neither worked. This keeps the skin moisturized, but NO SHINE! Absolutely worth trying and I will certainly be a repeat customer for this product!

WOW!! I'm a believer...
This stuff is amazing. I was always afraid to wear a moisturizer because I was afraid of getting break-outs. Not only does this keep oil at bay, but it immediately reduced my redness that I had from Proactiv Solution (which I'm soo not using anymore). I haven't gotten any break-outs so far. If you are afraid to use a lotion that will break you out, or end up being too greasy, then this is the PERFECT product for you!! I was very skeptical, but I love it. I know you will too!! I'm also trying the Enzyme Cleansing Gel. If I see good results, I will comment on that too! So far, so good...

Eureka! All day without a drop of oil!
I don't know HOW this Mario Badescu product got by me, but since I began using it after Mario Badescu consultant Mei Cassles gave me a sample, there are no words to describe how good it feels to get through an entire day without my face looking like an oil slick.(I'm going to the salon on Thursday to buy a bottle.) Today is the third day that my face has been oil free. My face looks moist and dewey, but not at all oily. When I wore makeup everyday (since my skin has cleared up so much, I now only wear makeup on special occasions), my face was so oily that the oil ran down to my eyelids and made a complete mess of my eye shadow. Awful!
I have a special event that I will attend tomorrow evening and feel that I will be able to wear foundation and eye shadow without everything becoming a mess by mid-day.
Thank you so much Mei...and Mario Badescu!

Best Oil Free Moisturizer!
This moisturizer keeps my skin hydrated and controls the oil all day long. Plus, redness is immediately gone. At night I use the Seaweed night cream is both keep my skin looking great.
