Finding an actual fountain of youth is probably close to impossible, but the Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer on Amazon comes pretty close. Just ask supermodel Heidi Klum, 46, who pretty much swears by it.
The moisturizer is lightweight, but its ingredients pack a punch. Ideal for combination or dry skin, the face cream is made with lactic acid, an exfoliant that helps give way to brighter and more hydrated skin. It’s also useful for those with irritated skin, since it’s made with allantoin, an ingredient with anti-inflammatory properties.
Heidi once told Today that this is her go-to moisturizer for avoiding breakouts.
“I use it on my face. It’s very light,” she told the outlet. “When I use very rich creams, I break out in pimples. I’ve been using it for years. It doesn’t clog my pores.”
Customers on Amazon who have already tried this moisturizer also can’t stop talking about how light the product feels.
“Great daily moisturizer! Feels really light not greasy at all. Smells good and is not overwhelming. Been using it for a few weeks and I have noticed my pores look smaller and not as oily.”
One person mentioned that it’s light enough to apply before going all-in on your makeup, not like those heavier facial creams that end up making your face look cakey after you’ve applied makeup.
“I straight up am addicted to this stuff. No moisturizer I’ve ever tried feels as amazing as this one. After I use it, my skin is soft, smooth, and free of any redness. Great base for makeup, as it’s not too greasy and absorbs fast.”
Other customers raved about how the moisturizer has helped alleviate their skin conditions.
“I have Hashimoto’s and my face was extremely dry. I tried it for a few days and I could see and feel my skin was less dry. I also have rosacea and it looks as though the redness is less than it was. It is not gone but not as extreme as it was.”
If you’re now ready to bless your face with Mario Badescu goodness, don’t worry you won’t have to spend big bucks. The facial moisturizer is just $18 on Amazon.
