Are there any other people with acne-prone skin? Don’t be shy. There are many more of us than you might think. Every acne product out there is “oily skin this” or “oily skin that” and we’re left here wondering…but what about us?

The problem with most anti-acne products is that they’re made to suck skin dry, removing blemish-causing oils completely. That’s great for oily skin, of course! For those with a reddened or flaky complexion, this is not the best option. The issue with dry skin products though is that they’re often way too heavy, causing us even more breakouts! What are we to do? Turn to an iconic supermodel’s go-to, of course!

So if this cruelty-free moisturizer doesn’t contain ingredients like tea tree oil or salicylic acid, what ingredients does it have? Lactic acid, for one, which is a rejuvenating AHA that may turn the light on under our skin’s dull surface, allowing it to glow again. Allantoin, an antiinflammatory ingredient that can soothe irritated skin, is also found in the product. Chamomile is another important ingredient. Know how when we’re getting ready for bed, we like to drink a hot cup of chamomile tea to relax? This moisturizer is like a soothing cup of tea for the skin. Even just looking at this moisturizer’s blue hue has us feeling more relaxed already!

Mario Badescu has been creating gentle acne and anti-aging solutions since 1967 and is famously known for its facial sprays, but this moisturizer is going to perfect our skincare routine, so let’s grab it while it’s still on sale!
