I love this day cream. It's very light and not greasy at all, and works well as a general moisturizer underneath makeup. It smells fairly pleasant and I like that it has SPF. The only down-side is the packaging which is a small pot that isn't quite as hygienic as a pump-style applicator would be.
This moisturizer has a lot of flaws.
I have very sensitive skin, which is why I bought it in the first place. The product is super thick, greasy, and does not go on well under makeup. It made my face red and caused some small red bumps to appear within 30 minutes of being on my face. I tried it out for a couple days just to be sure it was this product causing a reaction and nothing else in my skin routine, and sure enough it was the culprit. It also dried out my skin horribly.
The packaging is really cheap and unsanitary. It's a plastic jar with a screw lid, meaning you're constantly dipping your fingers into this thick gooey mess.
Not a fan.
I really like this cream! I love being pleasantly surprised by drugstore products...and this one was a great find! I had run out of my regular day cream while out of town for work, and where I was staying only boasted a Walmart Supercenter and a few dollar stores. I chose this because the night before I had read an article by a renowned MUA who was very excited by this line of products. The cream seems a bit greasy at first, but in about 10 minutes time it all sinks in and my face is left extremely soft...and I swear this stuff makes me glow! My husband even noticed (which is pretty big news lol! He never notices things like that). I've actually been using it as my day moisturizer quite frequently lately...passing up what used to be my high end HG day cream! This cream does have a scent but I find it very pleasant and clean. Only two complaints: if you get too close to your eyes, watch out because this stuff stings and makes my eyes water forever if I slip up...and secondly, the packaging isn't super. It comes in a thin, cheap, plastic jar and the lid unscrews easily if its jostled too much...but for $9.99, Ill overlook the container to use the wonderful product inside! Would definitely recommend!
I bought this on super clearance and figured I'd give it a try. It boasts all natural ingredients, no fragrances, etc.
For some reason this cream burns when I first apply it, not sure why considering I don't really have super sensitive skin (I can wear retinol creams with no problem and chemical exfoliants don't bother me) I don't know why this fragrance free, super natural product is reacting badly with my skin. The cream itself doesn't really soak into your skin, it stays on the surface. It makes my skin look really oily, I can't wear it by itself or I look like a grease ball.
I really wanted to like this product but it's a disappointment. Bummer.
I got this in a duo sale with the night cream and I like both very much. Its the right consistency for my oil skin, no horrible fragrance , doesn't break me out and helps reduce lines around my eye. Doesn't irritate my eyes either which many do.
I would prefer pump packaging and even though it states on the packaging 'with SPF' doesn't give a rating so I also put on some SPF on the danger zones (cheeks, nose etc) .
Its good under makeup and I probably repurchase.I have already purchased a second jar while it was on 2 for £4 offer!
simple products seem hard to get hold off these days, Boots have very little stock as does our local superdrug.
UPdate: My skin dried out a bit in the harsh winter weather and this was not quite moisturising enough.
I've been using this day cream for the past few weeks, and I really like it. It's nice and thick, which is good for my dry, sensitive skin, and it gives me some SPF. With skin as fair as mine, that's good news!
I usually use Olay moisturizers for day-to-day, but the Complete for Sensitive skin with SPF 15 was making my face really greasy throughout the day so I went on the hunt for something new. I passed on pretty much every other DS brand because Iíve tried them all, except this new one. It had all the claims that are music to my ears: hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, fragrance free etc. Coupled with the in-store coupon, I scooped this up with high hopes. Within 2 days of using this, along with a greasy face, small whiteheads popped up, the kinds I know are associated with using products that donít agree with my skin. I gave it to my husband who has perfect skin so it may work for him but as for me, Iíll stick with my unclogging, if somewhat greasy looking (which can be managed with blotting) Olay Complete.
I love love love this moisturizer mostly because of the SPF, usually Im really lazy about sunscreen or just forget but now I have my face protected. As well since I have acne this moisturizer not only helps keep my face moisturized but doesnt irritate my skin. The only downside is that since its a cream base you can appear a little oily at times.. xoxo yourfaveazn
omgosh this stuff burned my face so bad! The first time I used it, it was okay, but the second time made my face all red. My skin is quite sensitive but I thought this product claims to be for sensitive skin! Not buying this again.
This is my favorite moisturizer at the moment. I have skin that is on the drier side, so I need enough moisture to keep it from getting dry and flaky. However using things that are too heavy causes me to get clogged pores and occasionally acne. To make things more complicated, my skin is very sensitive and gets red and irritated easily. I have used so many moisturizers, and most of them seem to make things worse by adding more irritation. I especially notice a problem when I use moisturizers with SPF. Given all this background on my skin's tendencies, I was VERY pleasantly surprised that this cream does not irritate my skin at all. A few weeks in, I haven't had a single breakout. And my skin feels super smooth and hydrated. I am very happy with this product! It's only around $10 too, which is a great deal for a skincare product that works. Definitely give this one a try.
