My bad luck with Ambi continues...I purchased this to use as a daily moisturizer because it was on sale and a lot cheaper than my HG, the reviews on MUA weren't bad either, so I thought why not!? My skin is oily with patchy dryness from using Retin A and this moisturizer did absolutely nothing to help with the flakes/dryness and sat atop my skin like a greasy film:( I gave it a good 2-3 weeks trial and it's a no go for me, due to the fact it made my skin look oily and broke me out all over! This went into the garbage where it belongs, I wouldn't rec this product to anyone with acne.
I love this moisturizer! I was referred to this by a family member and it works amazing! At first I had hopes that it would help even out my skin tone because i have dark spots, which this product did slowly even out but not drastically. But what I loved most about this product is the SPF protection. My face burns really easily in the sun and I constantly have to put sunblock on. Recently, I went to Mexico and I was out in the sun swimming all day and I only applied this moisturizer once in the morning on my face and trust me, my face did not burn at all!! Amazing stuff!! This product is also very moisturizing and does not leave a greasy feel to my face.

I am a little perplexed about the raving reviews for Amib’s moisturizer. From day one, I was not satisfied with the product. I will say that I like the bottle that it comes in, as well as the twist top to open and close. That is about as far as my overall “likeness” for this product goes. The overall texture had an oily consistency.
I have normal to combination skin, and this product only magnified my deficiencies. My dry spots looked ashy and began to flake, and my oily parts became even oilier. Not to mention that my dry spots itched. I used this product day and night for about a week, with the same results. Let’s just say at the end of the week, I had little patches of bumps on my forehead, in between my eyes and cheeks. I even e-mailed and called the distributer, which only brushed me off. I would have returned it to the store, but I threw away the box it came in. I was really disappointed in the effectiveness of the moisturizer because I REALLY liked the cleanser. I expected the same results with the moisturizer (reason I threw away the box). Also, the price is a little steep (retail about $11).
I still use the Ambi cleanser, but I will NOT use or recommend the moisturizer.
So, needed a moisturizer and got this. I really wasn't expecting too much out of it, but for the past few months I've been using it, I've gotten good results. Pros: A pump, yay! And you can twist it to keep it closed so no air gets in. Lightweight and non greasy, and with it having sunscreen in it, no white cast or anything which is good when wearing makeup. It evened out my skintone over time, which was great. Hyperpigmentation sucks. No breakouts, yay! Cons: Not too wild about the smell - its what I call "pleasantly plasticy" if that makes any sense. The price, not too wild about that either, because I always assumed Ambi products were good for the budget conscience..oh well. I feel its good enough for a repurchase though, its a decent moisturizer.
After using this product for a month now, the verdict is in! This daily moisturizing cream is a keeper and I will be repurchasing when this bottle runs out. Within the past month I have been pretty intentional with my facial routine, seeking out products to both cleanse and moisturize. In combination with my current facial routine AMBI facial moisturizer is the whip cream on top and has done wonders for my face. I have hated using moisturizers before due to my fear of looking greasy or breaking out...this product has not contributed to either concern. It has a dewy look to it, I often pat my face with a piece of tissue after application because I have yet to appreciate the dewy finish. As far as breakouts, I have none! Which is a miracle given that I have sensitive skin. Ultimately, this product is a keeper. It has helped to improve texture, tone, and gradually fade my dark marks. I'm happy y'all! No complaints.
This product is great! I love it! I would recommend this product to people who are acne-prone. Ive been using this for about a week and I noticed that my face was clearing up! Ive been using CopperTone's sunblock and it made my skin oily, greasy, and shiny so this product is perfect!
I've been through maybe 3 bottles of this product and I will definitely buy it again. I have acne prone skin and this light weight moisturizer is great for me, it also really helped even out my skin tone I use this under my bb cream and I'm good to go
I wish I had as good results with this product as everybody else. At first this moisturizer didn't bother me. But it sends my oily t-zone into overdrive. It says it doesn't leave residue or shine behind on the skin. I wish it had done that for me. My skin always looked like a cross between being shiny and being rough and dull all at the same time when I used this. I'll check out the rest of the line but won't be buying this again.
This is my HG sunscreen lotion for my face and neck! It doesn't leave my skin with that white texture I usually receive from most sunscreens and it moisturizes my face. The downside to it is that I have combination skin and it covers my tzone and my nose with an oily slick feeling. But I still love it.
At first I wasn't a fan of it because I would get tingling sensations when I applied it but it turns out that was just my sensitive skin reacting to it. Sometimes I get the "tingle" but most times I don't. It feels light, non-greasy and the scent isn't overwhelming. Once the skin is given time to get used to it, it can be a great product.
*reapplication may be necessary and do not depend on this product alone for healthy glow (healthy inside = healthy outside)
