Not for me

I've been looking for a good moisturizer for a while, but sadly this product is not the one for me.

Maybe I used too much, but it took a long time for it to absorb into my skin and it left my face feeling greasy. I put it on after a shower, before bed and the result in the morning was pretty soft and supple skin. But it took a good two hours before the oily feeling went away.

Others seem to really enjoy the product, but I'm still on the hunt for the moisturizer that got away.

Pretty good!

I like that this absorbs pretty quickly into my skin, and it doesn't leave me feeling super dry or greasy afterwards. It does make my skin feel nice while I am wearing it and it hasn't caused me to break out! I can also wear this on top of my acne medication without my skin feeling smothered. I haven't noticed any kind of noticeable improvement in my complexion but then I haven't been using it for that long so there is still the potential.
This isn't on my "must buy" list, but it'd be nice to have!

feels delicious

This product feels so lovely going on and made my skin super soft. However, I just read that the ingredients are not conducive with breastfeeding, so I will delay purchase until my baby is weaned :( Too bad, because I was looking forward to buying a regular size!

Awesome!

I just recieved this in the April box and after one use I can tell a difference. My skin is so soft and smooth. Can't wait to buy the full size.

Great stuff!

My dry, sensitive skin was desperately in need of some help after a long, cold winter when this sample arrived in my April box. I love it! After one use my skin looked smoother and felt softer - almost velvety. After continued use, my skin is looking and feeling great with no irritation either. Will definitely be buying this in the full size.

Wonderful Texture
Purchased

This serum is awesome! I put it on and really loved the way my skin glowed. It evened out my skin tone and wasn't greasy. I have normal to oily skin and this thick serum wasn't too heavy for me. Love it!
