This moisturizer has a fresh scent and a great lotion consistency. It has a slight sting when you first put it on if you're a picker like me (I know, I know), but it doesn't linger. The cream absorbs very quickly, which doesn't make for a lasting, massaging application, but you can apply makeup soon after. Best of all, this moisturizer treats my blemishes, minimizes pores, leaves my skin feeling baby soft, and has outstanding oil control - I no longer have the midday shine! I was a little disappointed that this is only 2 oz compared with the 4 oz cleanser and toner in their system and is more expensive, but overall I'd say it's worth it.
