Don't see what all the fuss is about

The product description made this sound amazing and so did all the reviews. Like it was a miracle worker of a product. I got on the waitlist when it sold out and purchased it as soon as it came back. I have combination skin so hardcore. It's super oily but it can get really dry and flaky too. I loved the smell, but I didn't like the gel like texture or how tight it made my skin feel.

OK but not great
Purchased

Refreshing feeling initially, but it doesn't improve the quality of my skin.

Not a great moisturizer for girls with rosacea.

Too harsh for me :{
Purchased

At first, I loved this moisturizer. It was light, smelled like creamsicles, and was a nice consistency... almost like a gel. However, after using it three times, day/night, I went to use my Clarisonic tonight and had to stop half way through because my face burned so much. I went into my room and all below my eyes like on the tops of my cheekbones was red and puffy. I put on some Dr. Jart Cerimidin cream, which is my holy grail for my sensitive or dry patches, and it stung so bad!!! After about an hour or two the swelling has gone down, but something in this product was too harsh for my very sensitive skin :{ I also don't think this is very good for moisturizing... my skin has been kind of flaky and dry feeling since using it.

Overrated

I think this product has been hyped up too much. Instead of an energy boosting moisturizer it's more like a tinted moisturizer. It felt great when I first put it on but a few hours later my face was very shiny! I usually don't have an issue with shine. Overall the sample size was very small and I was not impressed, next!

Meh

I didn't notice any "energizing" properties on this moisturizer. It worked alright, but it doesn't necessarily do what it says it does.

Didnt love.

It went on a little greasy and not very light coverage. I really love their GinZing eye treatment so I gave this a shot. The smell wasnt very appealing and I didnt notice much difference from my regular moisturizer which has an SPF which is more preferable to me.

Sample Review

This moisturizer was not for me. I feel like it left my face feeling greasy and didn't set quickly. I didn't see any crazy differences in my skin like it had mentioned. The directions also said that you should apply it in the morning and night but the sample only produced a little bit for a one time use.

There are far better out there

Spend your money on more effective skin care. This is nice if you just want a moisturizer that won't be as effective as it should be for the price you're paying. Otherwise, do your research and you'll find much better skin care for the price.

This sample was very tiny so didn't really get to see if I liked it or not.

Not Good for Sensitive Skin
Purchased

I really wanted to love this wonderfully scented little moisturizer that smells like oranges and sunshine. However, I have sensitive skin that is oily and acne-prone and this did not work so well for me. It made my face turn red and had a burning sensation. I did notice that after my skin had calmed down a few hours later my face did look a bit brighter than normal, so I suppose the energizing effect does work. Overall, for people with normal skin sensitivity, I'm sure this is a perfect moisturizer, but it just wasn't for me sadly.
