Moisturizer is a very important product to include in your skin care routine. No matter what kind of skin you have, let it be oily skin or dry skin. I have tried quite number of moisturizer and recently I have included the Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream in my skin care regime. As per usual, other than Sephora I usually shop all of my makeup and skin care products from Luxola. I lost all my self-control when it comes to Luxola. How can I ever resist all the discounts and special deals Luxola offers? Who’s with me?
The packaging and texture
Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream comes in a white plastic jar. I find it quite unhygienic and a hassle to use it. I just have to make sure my hands are clean before I dip my hands in it and I disinfect it quite often. I wish it came in a more innovative packaging.
This Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream has a really thick and heavy texture. It’s a night cream, which should be expected. And it’s green in color. I also think that it’s heavily scented. Can’t put on a finger on what kind of smell it is but it bothers me a little. Now, does that intimidate you?
My thoughts on it
I’m not going to lie, after I received it, the looks and the texture of the moisturizer worries me a little. I have oily skin and acne prone skin; I think you understand my concern right? How can I slap this kind of moisturizer on my face every night?
After reading so many glowing reviews about this moisturizer, I tried it anyway. It makes no sense to sell it before I even tried it, right?
Let me tell you, I’m so ecstatic I found the courage to try it. I woke up every morning with a supple, bright and clear looking skin. Don’t take this statement too far; I don’t want you to take it the wrong way. Yes it moisturizers my face like a charm and calms down my skin but it doesn’t do miracle in one night. Over time, I think it has improved the texture of my skin. Even though I woke up with plump skin every morning but I noticed it’s a bit more oily than usual.
I use it every other night after toning. The consistency is thick but it applies smooth and buttery. If you have clogged pores like me, using exfoliating face wash beforehand might help to make this moisturizer to absorb faster. I’m currently using the GlamGlow Supercleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser. Even though it’s not an exfoliator, it does contain tiny little bits in it.
It’s a night cream thus I only use it at night. I don’t think it’ll work well if I use it during the day just because climate in Malaysia is very humid and hot. I’m sure my makeup won’t hold. If you live in a colder and drier climate, I think you can stretch it that far.
Does it break me out?
No, I don’t think so.
Does it stop me from breaking out?
Would I recommend?
Will I repurchase?
