I didn't really like its creamy consistency. I found it rather difficult to spread evenly. I did like the fragrance though. My mom now uses it everyday and she really likes it. Her skin does look a lot better, I must say. Even her wrinkles are disappearing. I guess it's for more mature skin.
I used Capture Age Defense Refining fluid spf 8 and found no difference in my skin. Didn't think it did much.
This moisturiser evened out my skin tone and didnt break out on me (normal/combo skin). Been using it 6 months now (all of winter actually- has a low spf level) It does have a strong smell to it (sort of reminds me of "expired" coffee) which in the begining was hard to get used to. But before long I turned out to love it (the smell!). Didn't see any dramatic results (I just turned 32) but would repurchase in the future since it overall had a positive effect on my face's skin texture.
I got it in a GWP along with the First Action serum and eye serum. It's a thick yet not very greasy cream. I don't care the SPF8 as both my TM and fondation have got Spf15. This is an okay day cream but nothing extraordinary. Thus, there is no way that I will splurge on this! I prefer Elizabeth Arden First Defence spf15 cream. Same concept, way better performance!!
