I am so glad I received this as a sample first, because otherwise I never would have tried it! I live in a very dry climate and have pretty dry skin anyway, so I'm always looking for good moisturizers. Usually they help temporarily and my skin goes right back to being dry, flaky and peeling within a day or two. This stuff makes my skin entirely different - super soft, smooth, and IT LASTS. I apply it at night after I wash my face and and don't take it off until I wake up in the morning. I've never had issues with it causing breakouts, and it really is just an amazing product if you have dry skin like me.
