On first impression, this cream was amazing- smells divine, a really thick texture, and my skin felt so soft in the morning. My skin was super dry and this made it feel nice. However, if I apply even slightly too much of it, I get a break out. Its definitely not for people with anything other than dry skin, and I would wager not great for sensitive skin either Also once I bothered looking at it, I realized the ingredients list is kind of a joke. Vegetable oil? Peanut oil? What am I paying for here? Im all for good quality oils in my skincare but right now I'm basically putting Crisco on my face and pretending it's fancy. I'm using it up but I definitely won't repurchase.

I bought this product on my quest to find a good moisturising night cream (the quest still continues if you were wondering). After seeing celebs and you tubers raving about the Mario Badescu drying loation I decided to bite the bullet and purchased it and the bee pollen night cream while it was on offer on beauty bay. My first impressions weren't spectacular, I expected higher quality packaging and the smell of the cream is definitely a not to everyones tastes as someone else has said, but was still excited to test it out. After cleansing as normal I massaged a big dollop of the cream over my face, the cream is very thick and be warned a little goes a long way. I found that by using a little too much my skin felt like it wasn't able to breath and just sat on your skin. Awaking up I did notice it leaves your skin very soft and smooth which is exactly what I was looking for, however I don't think it give any sort of radiant glow to my skin. I feel this is a winter night cream, suited to much drier skin due to it being very thick. I wouldn't repurchase as I think there is better night creams out there and the smell is very sickening.

It is a nice cream which has a balmy feel and thick consistency. You just need a small amount to cover your whole face. The smells is not to everyone 's liking - herby, like of medicine. Once applied the skin feels soft and smooth. The cream feels bit greasy at first but gets absorbed in a while. I could not register any particular radiance but the cream makes my skin supple.If you don't like the balmy feel to your skin you might not like the cream.

I'm a huge fan of mario badescu products, and was was intrigued by this bee vemon trend celebs have been doing.Like the other reviewers said, it is definitely a balm, feel very nice and moisturizing but doesn't absorb right away. I woke up with glowing smooth and soft, soft SOFT skin. Was beautiful and did everything it was suppose too, but if you have acne prone skin be careful. It left me with a bunch on small bumps on my cheeks and so did with mario badescu's moisturizing rosehip mask (also not for acne prone skin!) So I won't be re purchasing it but it's something I can definitely see myself using in the future for anti aging!

I bought this because it was recommended to my mom after she did her skin care questionnaire and she used up her sample and constantly talked about how amazing it was. We both have the same skin type and issues going on with our skin, so of course I had to hop on the internet and order my own jar (18 USD for a one ounce jar) because I have a thing for moisturizers and was on the look out for a good night cream.When I first opened my jar of this night cream, I immediately noticed the smell (in a good way!) and how it looked (a light color but VERY thick consistency). I was a bit skeptical because I have combination skin that is quite oily on my forehead, top of my nose, and chin with dry spots between my eyebrows, the sides of my nose, and the tops of my cheeks (weird, I know). I did not want to wake up in the morning oily or with acne and that was what I was most afraid of. Well the first night that I used it, I will admit, I think that I went a bit overboard with how much I used. I applied it as I would any other moisturizer, which in this case, may have been a bit too much. I woke up in the morning, and I did not have pimples, but along the bridge of my nose and on my forehead, I still had some remaining product that had not been absorbed. So I waited a couple nights and decided to try again. This time I used a very small amount (which makes a lot more sense now that I think about it, because of how creamy it is and easy to smooth onto your skin) and woke up in the morning with soft, smooth, clear skin.I love this night cream and I am so glad that I purchased it and gave it a second chance. It is amazing and it works well when paired over a face oil for additional moisture. I will definitely continue to purchase this product.

I thought this might be too thick for my combo skin but its the opposite. A little does go a long way and I have found this to be great as a night time cream. It sinks into my skin and I don't wake up with an oil slicked face. I expected that I might break out or my blackheads would get worse but it's actually making my skin look better. I am noticing better results with this cream than with the Priori one I was using

One of the few Mario Badescu products I would repurchase. This is the first MB product that I really wanted. I love how thick and creamy this lotion is. Not too heavy, can be greasy but since it's a night cream that doesn't bother me at all. I have oily/ acne prone skin so I use a lot of products that dry my skin out but with this cream my skin stays in balance. It's nice that a little goes a long way since the jar is quite small. I don't have a problem with this product breaking me out but everyone's skin is different. Mario Badescu has a nice return policy so even if it does give you problems you don't have to be stuck with it. This is probably the night cream I will stick with for the foreseeable future.

Feels totally awesome. I have a problem with night creams absorbing really fast over night but not this. It isn't greasy in the morning either.

I have combo, sensitive, acne prone Irish-Scandinavian skin, with scarring.I agree with the MUAer who wrote below me that this a balm. I was scared to use this at first since I'm prone to break outs, but the smell enticed me. It called to me! I tried just a tad...and the next day I swear my face was smoother and more even. I ended up using the whole sample over the course of 9 days, and this stuff is so good I'm buying a full size. I don't like tubs, I don't think they're very hygienic, but as long as my fingers are clean when I use it, I can't complain much, lolz.

Love. My skin always looks positively radiant after using this cream and no matter how much I use it its never broken me out (I thought it might at first since its incredibly hydrating and I have combo-bordering-oily skin). I alternate between this and Marios seaweed night cream though anyways. Oh, and the jar lasts forever so its well worth the price.
