Birchbox Breakdown

Hot cocoa dates, ice-skating, freshly fallen snow: there’s plenty to love about winter. But when it comes to keeping our skin supple and happy, there’s plenty to not love about the frigid temps. This ultrarich restorative facial moisturizer is here to keep the peace between your skin and the chilly, dry air—and to rejuvenate dry and very dry skin year-round. It nourishes and reduces dehydration and flakiness to revitalize dull skin, and, at the same time, works to prevent future damage by providing antioxidant protection.

Really moisturizing

I thought I'd try this on my dry, sensitive skin and was pleasantly surprised. It's very moisturizing, and not highly fragranced. For my older skin it made a great day cream. Also a good value for the price, I've paid much more for creams that did much less.

When I first read the description for this product, I wasn't sure it was going to be for me since I have fairly oily skin. However, I decided to try it anyway and it has saved my skin. I only need a very small amount (about the size of a pea) and it moisturizes my entire face. It has calmed the redness from my overly sensitive skin. It has also helped smooth out my rough texture; I can't remember a time my face has been this smooth. The smell is very fresh and even though it is a thicker formula, it soaks into my skin immediately. I definitely recommend this to all skin types, particularly during this time a year.

Very moisturizing

Very moisturizing product. I was so surprised because at the price point, I did not expect too much. I WAS SO WRONG! It really is one of the best moisturizers I've used for my dry skin. Will repurchase again.

Rich but not heavy, good for day and night

My skin is sensitive and very dry in these Chicago winters! So far I would say this cream is effective; it has improved the dry, red spots on my skin. I like that its lightweight enough that I can use this in the morning before putting on makeup and its not at all greasy. To me, this is an ideal day cream for dry skin. For nighttime, I would still prefer something richer. Overall, I like this product and would buy it again.
