Face It: You Need A Moisturizer featured image

For years I had been in denial. As I’d grown older, I’d refused to accept the fact that I needed beauty products to look younger, especially since I had an oily complexion. I didn’t get the fact that even individuals with oily skin needed to moisturize.

I can’t count the number of times I shook my head as my shopping buddy forked over countless dollars on top-shelf moisturizes- and he’s a man. Truth be told, it was he who quickly turned me on to the need for skin care when he pointed out that a combination of sun exposure, aging and other toxins could make me appear older beyond my years. Ouch!

So when I stumbled upon Mario Badescu‘s Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF17, I was dying to put it to the test. Designed for people like me with oily, combination and sensitive skin, there’s a laundry list of ingredients that leave your face feeling smooth and silky without that feeling that you’ve just applied a bunch of gunk. Also absent is an overpowering scent.

I’ve only been using the Badescu’s moisturizer for a short period of time, but I’ve already begun to notice the difference in my skin. In addition to the appearance-enhancing benefits, the SPF 17 also acts as a protective agent from skin damage caused by the sun.

A 2-ounce bottle will set you back just $22.00. That’s a small price to pay for youthful-looking skin.
