Great for sensitive, combination skin

I have skin that's combination (super oily forehead, normal cheeks, chin so dry it can get flaky) and it's a nightmare trying to find a daytime moisturizer that works. They all either leave my forehead too oily or everything else too dry. This moisturizer is perfect! My face feels hydrated and smooth but never oily. It's light enough to use now in the super humid summer but hydrating enough that I don't see myself switching in the winter. Can't imagine ever switching to another daytime moisturizer!

Love this stuff!

I absolutely love this stuff. My skin is very finicky. Acne, perioral dermatitis, easily clogged pores, you name it. I have to be super careful about what I use. This hydrates my skin while keeping it fresh and healthy looking.

Just a great product
Purchased

I decided to just do it and buy the cleanser and the mask with this. It is weightless and truly is long-lasting. I felt like I had a new face. It also is a matte finish so no greasiness. I also have been using the make up remover for the last month and love it.

OMG
Purchased

Ever since I started using this product, I haven't had a single breakout! I have extremely sensitive skin that reacts to every product I put on it. This is a miracle! The lotion is thin and absorbs nicely, but moisturizes well. LOVE!

Soothing!
Purchased

I just bought this and it does the job with out feeling like you've put on lotion. It's very light, yet still moisturizes your skin. I've sensitive skin and this felt like nothing but soothing lotion. The smell isn't bad either. The only thing is that you kind of have to use a bit more to cover your face and neck because it's so oil free it doesn't spread around easily. It absorbs fast. The tube was a decent size but u feel like I'll go through it fairly quickly. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

It cuts down time in the bathroom in the mornings.

This product has cut down time in the bathroom for me so much. I use to have problems with dry skin in the morning and would spend 15 minutes just trying to my face smooth for my concealer but since I have started using this product I have had no problem. I will be using this product for a long time.
