I absolutely love this product. No strong fragrance, light gel texture, very hydrating on my oily skin and leaves it plump and softer than a baby's skin. It hasn't broken out my skin at all and I will definitely buy it again. I use the oil control lotion during the day and the mineralized gel at night time and when I wake up in the morning my skin still looks very refreshed.
I have been using this moisture gel for six weeks and I have to say that it is the absolute best moisturizer I have ever used.
I use it every single night after cleansing and it works really well on my combination skin - providing enough moisture where needed and mattifying my T zone.
It is an extremely lightweight, scentless gel and it feels refreshing and cooling on the skin.
It instantly absorbs to leave skin matte, yet glowing!
After six weeks of use I have noticed the following benefits:
- No breakouts at all. My forehead normally has a few small clogged pores and after six weeks there are none. This may be due to the salicylic acid content and the fact the product contains no irritating fragrance or other nasties.
- Smoother skin with smaller pores.
- Skin is less blotchy/red.
- Skin is producing less oil in the T zone.
- Skin is more plump.
I look forward to using this every night and it also works well under make-up when I have used it during the day. (But I tend not to as I use a primer and/or spf instead).
The only thing I would change would be to have this in a tube, as the jar isn't hygienic and the ingredients will deteriorate when exposed to the air.
All in all, this is the perfect moisturizer for sensitive, oily or combination skin (Can't judge it for other skin types as mine is combo/oily and can be pretty sensitive).
I'll certainly be buying this again - even though it's pricey, it is so worth it!!
My new HG moisturizer! I have slightly sensitive, normal-normal/slightly combination skin. It's rather picky and it's hard to find a moisturizer that will totally normalize my skin. When I first started using this moisturizer, I loved how it felt when I applied it but thought maybe it wasn't giving me enough moisture thoughout the day. However, after about a week it seemed to totally adjust and now I have NO dry areas or flaking, and the areas of my face that might sometimes get a little more oily are much less so. This moisturizer feels so soothing and hydrating when I apply it! It sinks in quickly which is great because I don't have a whole lot of time in the mornings to wait for moisturizer to absorb so I can start my makeup! It provides me with the perfect amount of moisture.
It doesn't contain SPF of course, but I've been wearing BB Creams and TMs with high SPF content anyway so it's not a big deal for me. I actually prefer that it doesn't because that means I can use it at night too! I have to admit that I haven't spent that much money on a moisturizer before but like I said, I've been using this for almost a month now and the jar still looks full. I can tell it will last a LONG time. You really don't need much product when you apply. I love the pretty off-white pearlescent jar and matte black lid. You definitely get a fair amount of product. I bought this along with the Water Charged Eye Cream and love that as well. :)
This product is the answer to my prayers ! Quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving my face literally glowing. This is my official moisturizer!
Not for me. I saw this at a Cosmetic Company Store and thought why not try it, I could return it if I don't like it. I gave it two weeks. I used it every morning after I washed my face. It feels nice, soaks in really quick and makes my face feel matte, but after 2-3 hours, my face is an oily mess and if I happen to get it near my eyes, IT STINGS. Oh well, on to the next!
I've been using this for about two months now, and I can safely say that this moisturizer is great. My breakouts have subsided significantly, and I no longer get whiteheads on my forehead. Moisturizes my dry cheeks without over-hydrating my forehead. Would probably be a perfect fit for dry-combination skin like mine, combination, or oily. May not be hydrating enough for dry to very dry skin.
I have pretty bad acne, and a lot of moisturisers i've tried always clog my pores.. I previously used nivea soft but stopped as it started to make me break out and look oily. I then switched EOV for a more natural approach..but.. that just made me look real greasy. anyway, this moisturiser has no scent, soaks into the skin very well, and does not leave a greasy feel. I wake up in the morning and I just know my skin will look glowy. Not too sure what it is, but it also helps reduce the size of my blemishes :S I'm going to repurchase this very soon as i'm running out.. HG moisturiser! :)
Only been using this for 2 days, but so far so good. This feels GORGEOUS putting it on... the loveliest, non-greasy, comforting feeling ever in a moisturiser. Very smooth. It's a sort of gel-like substance, but softer. Sinks right in and my face feels super soft and smooth. Feels very comfortable all day, no tight feeling, but also no greasiness.
I'm only adding this review now because there are so few so far, but really it's a bit too early to tell. I am very prone to breakouts and also have an issue with dehydration when the central heating is on full blast, so am going to have to wait and see how I fare with this after prolonged use. But for now, this is getting a big thumbs up. Pity this doesn't come in a pump or a tube... also a pity they don't make ANY creams with SPF in this gorgeous type of gel-like, oil-free consistency.
I have no idea if this has any real long term benefits, if there is any anti-oxidants or any other goodies in it... Might be more of a simple moisturiser but I really have no idea because I can't find the ingredient list anywhere online and I already threw away the box. Oops. Either way, it feels good.
My best friend gave me this for Christmas, and it's very interesting...It's a very matte moisturizer, and does not sit well under makeup, surprisingly. It's not moisturizing enough for my combo skin, so I'll let my mom try it, as she hates anything too moisturizing. Has no smell, which is nice.
This is a really nice light weight basic moisturizer. It doesn't feel heavy, you can feel that it sinks right into the skin.
When applied it feels nice and fresh and almost cooling.
I believe this is excellent for acne prone skin, after using this for a week my skin looked clearer and it helped unclog my pores (likely due to the salicylic acid content).
Definitely best for normal to oily skin, if you have dry to very dry skin it might not be enough moisture for you.
I think it's perfect for humid summer months.
My only complaint is the jar packaging. I just buy pump dispensers and transfer the product into them though.
