Ideal for inflamed skin - eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, etc
Thick (not ideal for oily to combination skin)
A few years back, I had a terrible outbreak of red and dry skin around my mouth (not perioral dermatitis). I tried all kinds of creams and serums ranging from cheap to extremely expensive. I even tried prescription creams which did not help either. Amazingly, I tried this out of sheer luck as I was browsing the Mario Badescu website and I was delighted to find how much this product did for my skin. It cured the area completely within a week or two and it was extremely moisturizing. It has Balsam Peru in it, or myroxylon which I found to be great for reducing the inflammation I had - much better than the more common ingredients used to treat inflammation such as aloe vera or cucumber. This was my saving grace those few years ago and I recently purchased it again when my skin was a bit dry. Its perfect if you have eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea or if you just want something moisturizing. It has a pleasant scent (a bit medicinal) and just a great product overall. I highly recommend this!
