Might be good for extremely dry skin in the wintertime. Made my combination skin SO oily (even the dry parts), didn't absorb, and clogged my pores to high heaven. I ended up using it to moisturize my elbows instead.
Very moisturizing but way too oily. It sits on top of your skin and refuses to settle into your skin. This is a product you can only use at night.
I'll buy MU based on the colors, but when it comes to skincare, I will totally research reviews. I have been using this about a full week now. Love !!!! It sinks right in, gets rid of dryness and brightens my face. It was a bit steep in price, so I save my receipt in case I didn't like it. No extra clogs either, and it doesn't make me too shiney using under makeup. Might be my HG for summer. Love that it has antioxidents and is all natural too.
I've been on a mission the past few weeks to find moisturizer to fit into my summer skincare routine that would provide the right amount of moisture for my dry, flaky patches without leaving my skin greasy, oily, or causing black or white heads. After trying 4 different products I decided to try this one out, and I am in LOVE!
I was a little intimidated by the price tag for this product (I first spotted it at my local Von's for $16.99), so I decided to do some research on it beforehand, also knowing that it would be less expensive elsewhere. After reading such good things about it, I bit the bullet and paid $14.99 at CVS.
This moisturizer packaging says it is "fortified with vitamins B, C, E, and anti-oxidant omega bio nutrients for healthier, younger looking skin". It contains no harsh chemical sulfates, para ends, petrochemicals, dyes, or phthalates. It also says it is formulated to be 97% naturally derived. All sounded good to me!
The sleek, matte tube contains 3 oz of product, so you do get a lot of product for the cost since it takes such a small amount to completely cover your face and neck. The consistency is creamy, yet surprisingly light and absorbs into the skin wonderfully. It does have a fragrance, but its really a really nice fresh smell (smells a bit like watermelon to me) but it dissipates rather quickly once the product is absorbed.
This moisturizer is so light, it doesn't feel heavy like some moisturizers Ive been trying. Once absorbed my skin is soft, dewey, and looks radiant. I've been using it for about a week now once or twice a day but definitely at night. Since I've been using this, I've noticed a significant improvement in the tone and texture of my skin. I've had no breakouts, no dry patches, no excess oil and my makeup applications have been flawless. My skin is extremely soft and looking healthier by the day. I'm super impressed with this moisturizer and I can see it becoming one of my "must have" products. Now I want to try the cleanser as well since my skin has responded so well to this product.
If you're interested in this moisturizer, I highly recommend trying it out. So far it's been worth every penny!
I bought this and the naturals makeup removing cleanser and I'm delightfully surprised at how much I love it! It smells great and absorbs fast, I thought it would be too thick and end up greasy at first but it doesn't and seems to be controlling both my dry patches and oily patches. I'm extremely acne prone and haven't had any issues with this breaking me out. It actually seems like it's helping me stay clear which is amazing! I wish they had one with an SPF but putting my neutrogena oil free SPF 15 over it is fine and doesn't add as much shine as I thought it would. I love most of neutrogena's products, it seems to be the only brand that doesn't make my skin angry & this cleanser and moisturizer is the best combo yet.
Horrible product, broke me out in a bunch of small pimples. Ugly tube packaging. Strong synthetic fragrance.
So far, I LOVE this. Assuming things don't go downhill, this is my new HG moisturizer. I have combination skin that is riddled with both clogged pores and dry patches. This moisturizer has eliminated the dry patches and has not contributed to the clogged pores.
It sinks in very well and does not feel heavy. It has sort of a whipped consistency to it. Personally, I like the smell. It's not very strong and it is -very- slightly fruity. It doesn't irritate my skin or cause any redness. I use it around my eyes with no problems (which is surprising because there is fragrance in it). After putting it on my face feels soft and continues to feel clean. It does not interfere with my foundation at all, and helps it to glide on more smoothly (I use Clinique Perfectly Real). It doesn't ball up either. So far, no complaints.
Purchased this on an emergency Target run while I was traveling for work and had forgotten my regular moisturizer, AND had an allergic reaction to the hotel bedding. I have sensitive combination skin with a very oily T-zone and the tendency to get very dry cheeks. I work outdoors, which only complicates the problem. Used for a week while I was away; have now started using it again.
Pros- This is the best moisturizer I've found for hydrating dry skin, hands down. Despite the thickness, it goes on light and absorbs easily. Within 12 hours of applying it, dry skin both looks and feels better. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.
Cons- I have large pores that clog easily. Despite the claim of being non-comedogenic, this moisturizer DOES clog my pores; I'm popping out whiteheads from my T-zone the morning after use.
Overall- Despite that it clogs my pores, I continue to use this moisturizer when my skin is particularly dry, as it is fantastic in that respect. However, I'd caution people with already oily skin, or who are prone to clogged pores, against this one.
I just started using the moisturizer along with my Rx Retin-A because my skin is dry and peeling. I figured using something more natural would help. My only concern with this product is that after washing my face and putting it on, it burns. It might just be because my skin is so sensitive. After the stinging stops my face feels smooth and hydrated. Overall, I like this product but I'm not sure if I'd buy it again if the burning doesn't stop.
I was surprised at how much I ended up liking this moisturizer! The first time I applied it after washing my face with the line's cleanser I was worried that it would clog my pores since it seemed to go on so thick. However, it absorbs into the skin and makes it feel refreshed without turning it into an oil slick. With consistent use it also lightens scars and evens the complexion. It's one of my favorite moisturizers and I'm glad I got it.
As great as it is, though, it has a couple minor setbacks. For one, the price is ridiculous for the small amount of product you get. I consider this to be "minor" because you need so little with each use that it'll last awhile, so you're not rebuying some 13 dollar moisturizer every month. Also, watch the hole where the product dispenses from, because the moisturizer likes to clump around it for some reason. Also, I can't imagine this working for summertime since there are so many oils in it and my face gets super oily in the summer. However, I will try it, and if what happens is contrary to my review then I will edit it. For what it is, though, I recommend it.
Also, if you're thinking about getting this line's night cream, just get this. The ingredients are basically the same, you get more product, and the night cream is just smaller and more expensive. You're welcome. ;)
