This product helped me clear up the blemishes on my forehead! I had whiteheads and clogged pores and they are finally starting to diminish after I've stopped using Origins.
I have normal-dry skin and do not find this to be moisturizing enough for me, so I have been using this underneath other moisturizers (Olay sensitive SPF 15 during the day and I've been using a hyaluronic acid moisturizer at night - avoiding my forehead). I love the lightweight texture and will be purchasing this again when I run out :) I do anticipate this lasting me quite a while as the jar is quite sizable and I don't use very much of it. I wish it came in a squeeze tube or pump-top though.
This moisturizer is true to itís name itís really light which means itís sort of runny (careful when opening). I purchased this based on all of the positive reviews and so happy I did. The entire Botanics line is incredible and does indeed do what it says. You can notice a significant different when using their daily moisturizers within a two day span. When I wake up in the morning, my face looks bright and feels incredibly soft. Iíve started using this in conjunction with the Botanics Face Renewal SPF 15 Cream and the Botanics Moisturizing Deep Clean Foam and it has done wonders to my skin. Reducing the appearance of my pores, giving me a Ďglowí, getting rid of any discoloration (including minor red cheeks), and helps keep any breakouts at bay.
Since Iíve started using this I have zero bumps on my face, including breakouts. I used it during the day once because I had run out of my moisturizer but I donít recommend doing that. It made my face feel like I was sweating when I walked outside. Weird feeling, I did buy their Botanics Face Renewal SPF 15 Cream for the day and I did a separate review on that. I will mention that as much as people hate jar packaging, I love jar packaging. I don't dip my fingers in there, I typically use a q-tip and spot it on my face. In cases like these though, I feel like you're getting the entire amount out of the jar when it runs low. So their packaging was a huge plus for me.
Will repurchase anything from this line (the Botanics line, not No7)
I love this stuff. Works wonders and looks great under my powder foundation. It did a fabulous job evining out my skintone, in conjunction with the toner, Simple brand Gel Wash, and the Boots Wrinkle Serum. I am a runner and use it on my decollage area to keep it clear too. Great way to finally get rid of any clogged pores without a major breakout of any kind.
I've switched my skincare line to all Boots products because I wanted something organic without harsh ingredients on my oily, acne-proned skin. This light night cream is great. It isn't heavy and it contains BHA, which treats my acne while allowing it to stay hydrated. I stopped a month ago trying to dry out my pimples and started to really care for my skin by removing my makeup with my clarisonic and fully moisturizing it with this night cream. It doesn't feel heavy so I actually use a lot of this product every night. I wake up to softer, more nourished skin and my acne has decreased over the course of two weeks. I'm not a fan of the jar packaging, but there is a ton of product in it. I shake it up and use whatever is left in the cap and apply it over my entire face. Wonderful product!
i really like this for my oily acne prone skin. you could get the same exact effects buying a bha cream from walgreens for like 6 bucks, but this cream has a nicer consistency and doesnt smell like elmers glue.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this moisturizer!!!! I'm always terrified to try new products because everything breaks me out. I was convinced that night creams were forever off limits, but when I wake up in the morning my skin looks so amazing (at least compared to before.) Honestly, I can't use it every night because it's not that moisturizing due to the BHA, but it has helped my skin achieve a more even-tone in the morning which is priceless for me. Use it frequently with disposable plastic spoons to prevent bacteria build up. Will re-purchase!
I didn't think this product would do anything for my skin. I was really scared it would make me break out actually. I use this at night after my treatment as an extra moisturizer and it helps clear my skin and even my acne scars. It has BHA in it which I think is what helps with my scarring. I wake up in the morning to much more supple and clear skin. For $13.99 I will continue to repurchase and keep it in my regular skincare routine. I have very acne prone/oily skin with huge pores and am sensitive to a lot of products.
bought this and it was life changing. id wake up with glowing skin, blemish free, and well rested. I finished one pot and when i went to buy another one at the target i had previously purchased it from they didn't sell it anymore, in fact the didn't even have the full botanics section like they had before....so i switched to aveeno clear complexion in replace of. a couple of months later i target brought it back at another location so i bought it but then my face didn't want to cooperate :( i cant express how much i LOVED this product the first time around i would repurchase if i my face weren't so sensitive. i wish my skin took to it again.
just purchased this half off at target- usually i use paula's choice BHA toner as my exfoliation product plus my neutrogena oil free sensitive skin lotion, but i would love this to eventually replace that. used it over the weekend at my bf's place with success, my skin looks lovely and i haven't needed any additional moisture. while it is lightweight i still found it equally hydrating to the neutrogena product, it reminds me a bit of clinique moisture surge in consistency with a more emollient texture. will update as i continue using this product!!
This product has helped to save my skin. I have been experiencing a bout of terrible hormonal acne all along my jawline for the past 5 months or so. Just when I think it is going away, it shows up on the other side, and then a breakout along the other jaw. Nothing I have tried has helped. So, I have been trying product after product trying to find something that doesn't aggravate the situation, but have not had much success. Well, that all changed when I bought this product and the day lotion that goes with it (the complexion refining day lotion spf 12). I don't know if it is the willow bark extract or what, but it is working like a charm! It is not a super emollient moisturizer, so for people with really dry skin it might not be great, but my face is normal to dry and it seems to moisturize enough (I also live in Florida, so the humidity never gets low here). The only thing I don't like it the tub it comes in. The day lotion is in a tube, which I prefer. The day and night versions are similar in consistency, so they could've put the night one in a tube. Oh well. That is my only complaint! Otherwise, in three days it diminished all my jawline blemishes to the point of barely being noticeable, and I have no flakes or anything. If something changes I will post an edit, but otherwise this is a total wonder jar!
Update: So, this worked great for a bit, and then became too harsh for me. It did work like a charm to clear up that breakout I had, but after it had cleared, this started to dry my skin out with continued use. So, I will keep this around in case another breakout happens, but cannot use it everyday when my skin is clear.
