Excellent moisturizer

I have dry skin and this was one of THE best moisturizers I've tried in a long time! A lot of times, I feel moisturizers just sit on top of the skin and end up looking like they didn't really "soak in" and leave a flakey look. But this moisturizer really got through the dry layer and helped it stay hydrated throughout the day. I wish I had more! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the full size product is $90 and way too pricey, in my opinion. I will continue the hunt for a great moisturizer at an affordable price.

perfect for sensitive or rosacea skin

I have been using my sample for a couple of months now. Even though the price point is very high the composition of this moisturizer makes it so that you have to use very little of it. My skin is extremely sensitive 2 facial products in regards to breaking out, burning, or flaring up my rosacea. I have tried lower price point products like dermatologica, murad, first aid, Neutrogena, oil of olay, etc and they all break me out or cause reaction. This is the ONLY product I use without any issues. I have oily skin and this product reduces the oil production I create. Is a very lightweight product that does not feel oily on the skin. It absorbs very well and is perfect alone or under makeup. I left off 1 star only because of the expense I feel this product is well worth it and highly recommend it

Not worth the $

I've tried lots of firming creams and this one was no different than more economical ones. It wasn't greasy and i used the entire sample, but its not worth the price.

Enough to be sorry when it was done, and even sorrier when I saw the price! But because it worked so well for me, I am willing to give it a chance. Ah... The price of beauty....

Been using for a week... just didn't 'wow' me. I have really dry skin and I don't think this is hydrating enough for me.

Thought it was a great product. I'm in my 40's and I did notice a change in my skin!

I LOVED this product. It went on so smoothly and it didn't feel greasy at all. I also loved that there wasn't a scent.

Rich cream absorbs very nicely, doesn't feel heavy or greasy on. Skin feels great, very soft and silky. Absolutely no oiliness in the T-Zone, which I sometimes get with heavier creams. Will see how I am after a week or so of regular use, before considering purchasing.

It smells like it has turned but it works pretty well. I like Clar's Botanicals Marine Cream better.

I got a sample of this in my New Beauty Test Tube and I hated it. My skin is oily, as is, and this just exacerbated it. I did not use the sample that Birchbox provided because I have already tried it.
