It Seems Okay To Me
Sampled

I thought the container was a bit strange, not that it was bad or anything, it is just different.

I have used this sample only a couple of times and it seems to be fairly okay so far. I don’t notice a scent to speak of and it massages into the skin with a non-greasy feel to it. At this time, I am not sure how I feel about it. I have never really used a facial moisturizer before outside of the shaving products I use. So far, I have not noticed much except maybe my face is not quite as dry as it used to be.

The directions say to apply twice a day so perhaps after using this for a week or so, I will start to notice the effects better. Actually, I am not sure the sample size is enough to last that long. I guess we will see how things are when I run out. Until then, I will rate it at 4 stars. Who knows? Maybe this stuff will blow me away!

wish it had sunscreen
Sampled

I am new to Birchbox and pretty much new to using products other than shampoo and basic body wash. I want to take better care of my skin which is one of the reasons I got BB. I do wish this had sunscreen though I did like that it isn't greasy on my face and mattes well.

Great but not a fan of the fragrance.
Sampled

Applying the moisturizer kept my skin clean and not oily. The only problem I had was the fragrance, it really strong and did not fit well.

Great, light lotion
Sampled

I've got sensitive and reactive skin and I have to be pretty careful with what I put on my face to avoid skin issues. I use this sample at the end of my regular skincare routine and it will be replacing my current go-to. It's light on the skin and dries to a completely matte and non-greasy finish. The smell is light and pleasant at first and then unnoticeable after a few minutes, which I appreciate. All in all, this is a fantastic lotion!

Great Product

My favorite moisturizer this far. Not oily and gives the face a nice feel the whole day! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great all around product with semi oily skin.

Smelled pretty nice and decreased the amount of razor burn. A bit oily though.

Perfect for an aftershave and lotion combo!

During the cold winter months my face dries out so easily after I shave. So a lotion is a must. But I don't get the refreshing pow from an aftershave with anything else. great stuff.

Very Nice Moisturizer
Sampled

I believe everyone needs a face moisturizer. This product has a light texture and pleasant fragrance. I have been looking for a specific facial moisturizer and this might be it. Pricing might be a little on the higher side, but I may splurge for this product.
