I was looking for a new moisturizer since my skin is drying out in the desert winter. This is weird product for me. When I would first apply it, it spread well, but as it dried I could feel it tightening on my skin. It did however provide a decent barrier between my skin and the cold for the first week, especially when under makeup. My main problem was that on its own, it made my skin look and feel dull, and lost effectiveness the longer I used it.
I have always had extremely dry, extremely sensitive skin. I was always unable to wear make-up of any kind because my skin would flake off due to dry-ness. I've struggled for years to find something that would help me, when I came across this gem. This has been the best cream I've ever had on my skin, hands down. I have been able to wear make-up for the first real time in my life! Plus, it doesn't make my skin blotchy and itchy like most creams I've tried. I couldn't be any happier with this purchase. You don't need a lot on your skin, so the bottle lasts a long time, and it's fairly cheap for the product! I got my last two bottles for under $10 each. I'm in love with this product, and have been able to recommend it to anyone.
I have a combo/oily t-zone skin with dry flaky acne spots. I bought this moisturizer last winter as a night time moisturizer. The product it self isn't bad but I really don't like the smell of it. It smells like old lady rose powder like my great grandmother's. I'm not sensitive to smell but I just can't wear this. Plus I'm not a fan of the glass jar packaging it's so unhygienic.
i LOVE this product! i use this everyday after my shower. i have pretty dry skin and it is the perfect amount of moisture. this leaves a dewy moisterized look that i persanly love! PERFECT.
Not enough moisture for me. I don't even have particularly dry skin, but this just didn't do it. I got it for using around my eyes, but it seems to make no difference besides a little shininess - gee thanks! :(
It also burned a little sometimes when I used it around my eyes. It didn't cause redness or anything else, but that's just not good.
I was not sad when I ran out. Very disappointing.
I loveeeee this moisturizer. I normally am not one to repurchase any product. I like trying new things. But after trying the regular version of this moisturizer, I purchased the dry skin version and I am hooked and just bought my third jar of the stuff. While I did like the original of this products, I figured I could use just a bit more moisture. This stuff is wonderful. Only use it directly after washing your face or it will be too oily. It does linger on the skin for a few seconds but I just apply it and then either brush my hair or text someone back really quickly and normally within 30 seconds this stuff has soaked right up into my skin and my skin just feels healthy and soft. I only use this moisturizer under my makeup and I use it almost as a primer. My makeup lasts longer with this stuff underneath it and it smells good also. Some people complain about the packaging saying it's unhygenic...it's only me using it and I make sure I have clean hands before dipping my finger into it...solves that problem. It lasts so long also. Each jar seems to last me at least 3 months. For a drugstore moisturizer, it's a bit pricey. I buy it at WalMart for $8 and last time I had a $2 off coupon but I've seen it as high as almost $10 at CVS. Whenever you see a coupon for this stuff, cut it and go buy it because you will want to stock up. I will continue to use this for as long as they make it...and when I find out they're stopping making it, I'll buy a few jars to hold me over until I find something similar.

I went from NARS to Garnier. I thought I wouldn't notice a difference but it does not refresh and my skin looks old. As a get, it's cooling to the touch but doesnt last or moistuize. I'm still looking for the right moisturizer, trying Clarins next.
Nice moisturizer, softens but doesn`t leave skin feeling greasy. You only need a small amount, too much can dry sticky. Feels cool and refreshing. Love it.
The concept of this sounded great but unfortunately this gave me very little moisture. It's perfect if you have combo skin verging on slightly dry but this did nothing to actually moisturize my dry skin. It feels good going on but there's just not enough moisture in it to keep using.
Not a fan of this product. If you read ingredients :
3) Alcohole Denat .....WHY ?!!!! After this I stopped reading ingredients ......
Alcohol - Usually alcohol and moisturizer are not used at the same time. Alcohol removes moisture from the skin surface. Alcohole temporary creaties a cooling effect on the skin ... However, it is not lasting effect and alcohol will over dry your skin ultimately compromising skin defensive and leave it open to disease and infections.
In the long run , you are hurting your skin ...any and all effects that you may think are helpful for your skin are only temporary .
It doesn't matter what type of skin you have ...this is not a good product to use on your skin .
Shaking my head , researchers in Garanier ....you guys should know better.
