This is a good cream, but nothing that I haven't seen before. It has a gel texture that is slightly tacky on the skin but eventually sinks into the skin. It is definitely too heavy for people with oily skin; I used it on my cheeks which have some mild eczema. This felt nice on my skin and kept it hydrated, but didn't really do anything for the eczema except keep it from flaking. My cheeks are just as red as they were before using this lotion. The aloe soothing day cream doesn't really have much of a smell, so I assume it would be gentle enough to use for those with sensitive skin.

-Cooling on the skin
-Nice texture
-No scent and good for sensitive skin
-No animal testing

-Jar packaging, which is super unhygienic
-Didn't do anything for my eczema

leaves a balmy not so absorbent layer on the skin which I don't quit fancy
but helps against daily sun exposure for sure, not fan of the texture though..

This face cream is a bit pricey, but I find that it is worth every penny. It is lightweight but very hydrating, providing all of the moisture without leaving my skin looking greasy. It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated and takes away any feelings of tightness, dryness or irritation. It also reduces redness. It does not have a strong fragrance and is suitable for sensitive skin.

well. first of all, it makes me greasy for about 45 mins after I apply it. it moisturizes pretty well, but nothing spectacular. however, I absolutely HATE the jar packaging. so unsanitary. Would never repurchase, but I'll use it up since it was $18.

It seems like a really nice product, but god it smells so bad I can't even stand to put it on my face! It literaly smells like garbage, idk if it's just me or if I got a bad one or something but it is the first time I can't use a product just because of its smell. Very annoying.

This is one of the only moisturizers that I found that is moisturizing enough and doesn't cause me to break out. It sinks into the skin nicely and doesn't feel greasy. It actually does feel soothing on the skin.

I got this to help me out with a bad reaction I had to another face cream. The skin on my cheeks was particularly red and inflamed, so I wanted something fragrance free, cooling and soothing to help. This definitely ticked all three boxes and within a matter of days my skin was (almost) back to normal. I'm now using this up as I don't like to waste things, but I wouldn't be tempted to purchase it again for one reason - the consistency of it is just a little bit too thick for my skin for daily use and I find if I apply too much it can lead to breakouts. It was definitely great at helping with my stressed-out skin though, so for anyone else experiencing something similar I would recommend giving this a try.

LOVE this moisturizer for dry, sensitive skin. I have very dry skin; I can't even really blame this on the winter weather, because I live in a very southern climate. My skin is usually just dry all year round. I picked this up at the Body Shop about a month ago and I love it! It absorbs so nicely into the skin and it is very gentle; it's one of the few moisturizers that my skin doesn't react to.

This is such a nice addition to my skin care routine; I actually find the day cream is thick enough to use at night as well. The only downside is the price; for $17 you only get 1.7 ounces; however, The Body Shop generally has 40% off sales (one is going on right now) and then it only costs $10. If you can wait for one of those sales, I think it's definitely worth trying out. The only other downside is that, as a day cream, it doesn't have any SPF in it, so you will need to add that in separately for your daytime routine. But if you need something that is gentle and also hydrating, this is my favorite moisturizer.

I bought this to compliment the scrub, foaming cleanser and toner from the same line. This is by far the best product I've tried from the Aloe line. It sinks in really quickly and mattifies my skin a little, creating a great base for makeup. My skin is slightly sensitive and his makes it feel refreshed and not tight or dried out. I'll probably repurchase it even if I'm not using the rest of the Aloe line.
