Fantastic!

I love this moisturizer! It is so nourishing and smooth. It's not oily at all, and slides on smooth almost like a gel. In the winter months, it has been my savior since the cold just leaves my skin flaky. One day of using this heals all the winter dryness. My only con would be the smell might not be for everyone, but it goes away quickly and the payoff is worth it.

Absolutely love!

I am completely in love with this product. It feels SO light on, yet still takes care of dryness. My skin is very sensitive to breakouts and this product has not irritated my skin at all after 3 weeks of use.

Love this Moisturizer

Moisturizes without making my skin feel greasy, I use in combination with "clear" face wash and "clear" face pads and it works perfectly!

Hydrating & non greasy

This is a great moisturizer. It does what it says on the box:-) It is lightweight and really hydrates without being greasy. It doesn't do much as far as repair or anything like that, but I wouldn't expect anything extra for the cost of this. It's a great value for a great product.

Love it!

I use this every day, and have been for roughly a year. I didn't feel that other moisturizers were adequate enough. I love this one!!! Even in the winter months my face does not dry out; nor is it too oily in the summer. I highly recommend this product!!!!

Feels great, no breakouts
Purchased

My skin is dry and really sensitive, and this moisturizer both calms the dryness all day and yet is light enough so that it doesn't make me break out. And it feels not just moisturizing, but utterly refreshing on my skin when I first put it on. The product's one flaw is it's slightly medicinal smell compared to comparable products. But, then again, it works better than everything else I've tried. It is totally worth the price.

light fragrance, goes on smooth
Purchased

This is a great, light moisturizer that gives you a big bang for your buck. It's great for winter dry skin but doesn't feel heavy. I loved how it applied and felt like it lasted all day.
