Great moisturizer, but scent may not be for you
Purchased

This is a good moisturizer. It is hydrating without leaving a heavy residue. But the scent takes a little getting used to.. its like an orangey scent. Not super overbearing, but be weary.

Refreshing
Purchased

This moisturizer is uplifting and refreshing with a zesty scent. A little goes a long way and it left my face feelings hydrated and primed. Although it can be used in the morning and at night, it's especially useful in the morning for energizing your skin.

Great moisturizer!

I really enjoyed this sample -- both the texture and scent were truly lovely. I loved how it felt on my skin and it helped with some dry patches I'd been struggling with for weeks!

Smells FRESH!

Smells delish! Perfect wake-up treat. The only downfall I would say is that I didn't notice that it "deflates puffiness". Otherwise it's a nice light moisturizer.

Sure I got 8 hours of sleep...

I'm a graduate student, so baggy eyes are par for the course. I was most interested in the idea of this product for the plumping caffeine. What keeps me coming back, though, is the subtle iridescence to the creme that immediately makes me look more awake. I hesitate to say "iridescent" because that might sound a little flashy for an eye creme, but it is actually quite subtle and perfect. I like that I can wear it both under my normal BB creme and not feel like I have "packed my bags" so to speak OR alone and look refreshed.

Great for oilier skin-types

This is quite possibly the best-smelling skincare product I've ever used! I have to wake up at 5 a.m. to get ready for work, and the citrus smell of this definitely perks me up in the morning. This moisturizer goes on light and absorbs very quickly, allowing you to put on makeup right away. Unfortunately, it just wasn't moisturizing enough for me. I finished my bottle, but won't be repurchasing. I will miss the smell though!

Awesome moisturizer, doesn't 'wake-up' skin

This moisturizer is the best! I'd give it a 4.83 if I could. It's light and smells nice and doesn't make me break out, which is a huge plus. It doesn't really de puff, which is the ONLY reason I didn't give it a 5, but with the comparatively low price, treat yourself with a nice eye cream and you're set to go.

Great for Summer, Not so much for Winter

I do like that it's light, almost like a serum, absorbs quickly and does not leave a sticky residue on my face. However it's definitely not as moisturizing as I'd like in the winter. I use this for the summer when my skin isn't as dry. But it does leave my skin nice and smooth :)

Instant pick-me-up Yes, All-day-long No
Purchased

I love the smell of this stuff and how it makes my skin feel for the first hour after I put it on (I have what I consider to be fairly dry skin, so I like to moisturize a lot, but I can't stand anything heavy or oily on my face). However, after about an hour, I feel like my skin is a little dry and tight again. It definitely has that "Instant Pick Me Up" effect, but it doesn't last all day and it's a little pricey compared to other moisturizers I've used and liked.

Refreshing!

This moisturizer is nice and light, not greasy, and it leaves my face feeling super fresh. I have used it in the morning and at night. My skin loves it!
