Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30 Review

Hello my lovely ladies!

Hope you all are doing great! It is already October and the summer this year just seems to go on and on!! When I was deciding what to purchase courtesy IMBB, I really thought this through and realized I must try a product that is a staple. This way, I get to try the best on offer 🙂 Since I already had a great experience with Mario Badescu products (Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner and Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel), I went for their oil-free SPF moisturizers. This will be the review of the SPF 30 one, I will soon come up with the review of SPF 15 one 🙂

My Experience with Mario Badescu Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 30:

This lotion comes in a squeeze bottle with a pipette spout like opening. Initially, I really liked the way I could squeeze the bottle to get the desired amount of the product, but after the bottle is half over, it is tedious to do this very thing 😐

I like that this packaging helps to preserve the antioxidants, but I hate that after a while, I have no control on the amount of product! Still, this bottle is quite sturdy, break proof and travel friendly.

The texture of this oil-free lotion is like soft cream. It is not at all greasy and gives a beautiful glow to the skin. I have actually got compliments on the way my skin has that oil-free glow…5 stars to it already 😉

The one thing that I especially like about this lotion is the “no white cast” formula. I must tell you, it is such a relief!! You don’t have to wait like ten minutes for it to get absorbed into the skin. You are good to go, even to slather makeup on.

This oil-free lotion has never broken me out. I have a really sensitive skin and have to be very careful of what I use on it, as I break out like crazy! It says oil free, but I feel it would be a bit too much for the oily-skinned beauties. It does what it claims.
