Love it, but do your research!

If I could give this product 10 stars, I would. I'm posting this review in a lot of places because I really loved it.

I've seen a lot of criticism about this cream, but here's the thing: it does have ingredients that can irritate your skin, especially if you have rosacea, acne, or reactive skin. It provides a warning right on the bottle. You should absolutely research the ingredients before you put this on your face (as you should any new skincare product), and possibly try it in a small area first. If, like me, you are not allergic or reactive to the ingredients, then the glycolic acid will cause it to tingle when first applied, but do wonders for your skin. I'll probably use it every other night or every couple of days since my skin tends to be sensitive, and only use it with gentle and mild cleansers.

The scent is light and lovely (but scent is subjective so buy a sample if you're not convinced by the various reviews), and it made my skin feel great the night I used it and the morning after. Honestly, my skin has never felt smoother, and it even cleared up some small blemishes. I love this stuff!

It's very expensive, so I'll probably have to save up for a while, but I definitely plan on purchasing when my sample runs out.

Best Face Cream I've Ever Used!

I received a sample of this in a box a long time ago and it's still my favorite product of all time. This cream made my face feel so smooth and moisturized. It's amazing!

Thick but not too greasy! Great for decolletage!

I received a sample of this moisturizer in my May Ipsy bag and am enjoying it! It's a bit thick and heavy to use on my face since I have combo / oily skin but I have been using it on my neck and decolletage. It soaks in right away and doesn't leave the skin feeling too greasy or tacky. And I am seeing the lines in my chest visibly reduced!

Blah...

I tried this twice. The scent is horrible. I'm not that picky, but the smell is strong and terrible- like spoiled glue or something. The cream irritated my skin both times too. I can't believe they charge so much for this. Gross.

Can't get enough
Purchased

I am a chronic impulse buyer that never finishes a product, even when I drop some big bucks on it. Clark's Marine Cream is a game changer. I've nearly finished my tub and I am looking forward to buying another, as this will surely remain a staple. Nothing gives me the glow that this cream does. It smooths my little bumps of acne on my forehead, doesn't irritate the redness around my nose and chin, and the smell I love! It tingles a bit, but not in a bad way.

This is the cream that will get your friends and coworkers asking what your regime is.

I loved this cream. It smelled amazing and was super moisturizing. I thought that it was a bit thick and used it more at night to give it more time to soak into my skin. I took one star away for price. It's super expensive. I'm sure I could find something that does the same thing for much cheaper, but it's nice if you can afford the luxury.

Pricey but very good

This face cream feels fantastic, smells great, and keeps your face feeling clean and moisturized all day. It really does a great job. The hefty price is the only thing that takes one star from this review.
