Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream Product Review

Are you sure your skin gets enough hydration while you sleep, specially during cold weather or temperature?

Our skin needs sufficient moisture even while we sleep, specially if you have an air-conditioned room. Without enough moisture on our skin, it is more prone to premature aging, dryness, sensitivity, dullness and formation of fine lines or wrinkles. I definitely don’t want any of that. Of course, I’ve accepted that skin aging is now faster at my age but I’d still want healthy skin and I want it to age ‘gracefully’.

I’ve purchased 2 more Mario Badescu (pronounced bah-des-kooh) items from Luxola: Orange Protective Cream and Seaweed Night Cream. These are my third and fourth items from MB; first 2 are Silver Powder and Temporary Lifting Mask, also purchased from my favorite online beauty shop, Luxola. I loved those 2 products so I continued to explore more items from the same brand. 

I was looking for a hydrating and rich-textured moisturiser to use at night because I sleep in air-conditioned room. Seaweed contains natural anti-aging properties, moisturises the skin, and contains essential fatty acids (EFA) that help in maintaining elasticity and suppleness of the skin. I don’t really like eating seaweed but I won’t mind it on my skincare regimen, haha!

Like the other MB products I’ve tried, the Seaweed Night Cream comes in the exact packaging of white plastic jar, capped with white protective seal. The compact jar contains the cream which is almost full to the rim. You need to be a bit careful when removing the seal. Remove it while the jar is on a flat surface to avoid more cream sticking to the seal.

The Seaweed Night Cream comes in a mint green color, owing to the ingredients of this product. It has a rich texture, making it easy to apply evenly on the skin. So don’t worry about the greenish color as it will not show at all after the cream is absorbed. It has a mild scent, not floral or anything, but something that reminds me of lipsticks, which will also dissipate in a minute.

Here’s my face before and after applying MB Seaweed Night Cream for the first time. See that there’s a noticeable shine on the face after application. As mentioned, the cream is rich, and it leaves a film of oil or sheen. So if you have oily skin, I wouldn’t recommend this product as you might feel uncomfortable. I have normal-oily skin combination but air-conditioned rooms tend to make my skin feel dry so this texture is just nice for me overnight.

After 2 weeks of use, I can say that it works great in keeping my skin hydrated and moisturized every night. The product doesn’t promise repair but it did its job of hydration, keeps my skin smooth and protects from early signs of aging. Do you experience waking up to tight, dry skin in the morning? This night cream does wonders overnight.
