Love this product! It works well under makeup, as it absorbs clear and leaves no white residue. Very gentle and subtle, pleasant scent. I don't break out with it at all with it, and I have combination skin.
The product is also an amazing value. You don't need to use a lot of product. I have used the same bottle on a near-daily basis, and it has lasted over six months. Purchased in the UK, so no idea how I will find it in the states. Womp :(.
I hate this product on my skin as it makes it tremendously itchy and uncomfortable. It does not soak in and leaves my skin tacky for hours. On top of this, makes my face very shiny yet it really isn't that moisturizing. Evade!
This has been a really great find for me, pretty much the only moisturiser in the store that didn't have either mineral oil or silicones, both of which I try to avoid (Mineral oil tends to sit on the surface of my skin and silicones always seem to clog my pores in the long run)
It has spf so great for daytime, although I have actually been using it twice a day simply because it has been working so well for me. It is fragrance free and actually a great alternative to the Cetaphil lotion I was using, which can get greasy (I always have to dilute it, also it contains dimethicone)
Very inexpensive, but the packaging is not great, would be better in a tube or at least with a pump top. Overall though one of my favourite finds in the drugstore.
I generally use Simple Replenishing Rich moisturiser because that is the ONLY thing that I can tolerate at the moment. However I found that my skin has begun to look quite dull - Not sure why? Also I was still getting some dry patches even though I was using the richer version.
This beauty is cheap - less then £3 and contains no suspect ingredients and does not contain mineral oil like Simple's version. It is Fragrance free and SPF15.
The texture is quite rich so only a small amount is required really. I agree with the previous reviewer in that it is similar to Oilatum but I found that clogged my pores and left me shiny (Nothing against Oilatum just didn't work for me).
I am impressed and I like this very much - well done Boots!. They offer a richer version (without SPF) and a night one. I have not tried these but they are probably worth a go considering the price.
The one thing I didn't like was that the gentle face wash in this range contains SLS which I avoid at all costs.
29/11/12 - This hasn't worked for me since being pregnant as I went SUPER dry but I have a pot ready for if my skin changes back after birth. Currently using Liz Earle Skin Repair in Dry/Sensitive which isn't as pocket friendly, sadly.
I have oily/combo skin that can break out to certain products, i tend to go for oil free light moisturizers but dont find them that great, they tend to be thin and a bottle of nothing...i then started using the oilatum face repair cream and loved it, its thick and rich but didn't break me out at all....loved it but found that under my makeup it could sometimes make me a little shiny...then i saw this in boots and for the price £2.79 i thought i'd give it a go....its amazing, its oil free but thick and rich and doesn't irritate my skin or break me out...its just a little less shiny but with all the benefits of the oilatum..and cheeper. x
