The ingredients in this cream is excellent, especially for the price. The only thing that is kind of iffy is the PEG-100, which I can live with considering all the other natural ingredients. I work in a polymer lab and in the process of revamping my beauty routine after realizing that all the chemicals I work with comes in my cosmetics. It's really hard to find completely natural products, and this comes very close.
The cream is thick and absorbs really well into the skin. I have been using it for about a month and it's been great.
I have SUPER dry skin. Not dehydrated, which is what many people should be saying when they say dry skin. Dehydrated skin flakes and looks dull, where dry skin has teensy pores that can't absorb much. When you have dry skin, the dead skin doesn't flake, it sticks and builds up creating an impenetrable barrier of dead skin ickyness. To combat my very dry, sometimes to the point of painful, skin, I exfoliate a lot to get rid of the dead skin, but I still need something rich for after that so I can get to the problem before it starts. I bought this a few weeks ago and planned on using it day and night. I have to say this is just a meh cream for me. I also have very sensitive, not acne-prone, but I-look-like-a-tomato sensitive skin ( I never break out). This cream doesn't irritate my skin which is great, and it sort of moisturizes it, but not enough. It's enough to where there aren't rough and painful patches, but I can feel it when my skin is moisturized (one experience w/dermalogica) and this didn't come close. It also doesn't improve my ruddy complexion, which is another sign. When my skin is moisturized and healthy, it is glowy, but with this my skin is dull and still a bit blotchy here and there. I will keep on looking, but if I don't find anything better, I will have to stick with this.
I'm almost finished with my first jar of this & will repurchase. It's a very hydrating cream, yet doesn't feel greasy, doesn't clog pores, doesn't create an oil slick to wake up to in the morning. It smells good--a very light fragrance, but pleasant & it dissipates quickly. continued >>
This is a really great night cream for those with dry skin. I have used it off and on for years, repurchased many times. I like trying new products but will be going back to this for the wintertime. It smells good, has a nice consistency, and left my skin moisturized and soft without being greasy. The ingredients list is great and contains so many good-for-you ingredients. I highly recommend!
I've been using this cream for night and occasionally as a day cream for a little under 3 months. I'm impressed :) I have combination, acne-prone skin. No regular acne, but a one-time application of a product my face doesn't like can break me out dramatically and take weeks to clear up :(
Anyway, there is not one thing I don't like about this cream. I love the consistency, the smell, the way it sinks in yet leaves my face smooth and supple. Price is nice too.
Along with Weleda's Skin Food, this is by far my favorite facial cream.
Im 37 with oily, sensitive, skin. I break out to everything practically. I have used high end products all my life but within the last couple years i got on this natural kick and really started to take care of my skin. It has saved me hundreds of dollars and my skin has never been better. I use the whole earth science line, compared to alot of natural brands the smell is not overwhelming and its not loaded with lots of ingredients. this cream is emoiliant but doesnt clog my pores or break me out. It just softens my skin and i wake up to soft clear skin. I highly reccomend this and also with natural skin products its unlikely to clog your pores because the ingredients are natural and skin friendly.
I am 37 and have been using this product for almost 10(?) years, yikes, and I obviously love the results. I've just discovered MUA and my first search was for this night cream; I was curious to see what others think. I have normal to dry skin, no allergies or acne issues. I like to feel hydrated, and this is the richest face cream for the best price I've ever tested. It helps to fill fine lines and is a great base for make-up too. I use it every morning on my neck, face and chest AND in the evenings around the eye. It IS a thicker cream, white in color, not oily, it goes on a bit heavy, but your skin will absorb it and feel incredibly smooth/soft. I can see where someone w/ oily skin would hate it, but if you crave moisture at all you'll like this cream. It has a light scent and I purchase at the health food store for $12-13 in San Diego. I always test night creams in dept. stores and health food markets, I'm kinda addicted to it, but I always go back to the Apricot Night Cream. Great buy.
very moisterizing night cream. i wonder if it can be compared to La mer since i heart LM is very rich as well. I would like to do comparision between those two. By far this is the most hydrating night cream i've used. Quiet sticky after application but skin feels good in the morning.
Great ingredients list, but apparently too rich for my face. I use it as a hand cream right now.
It is very thick and seems to make my skin (face) a bit duller the next day. My pores seem more noticeable too. It doesn't quite break me out, but I don't think it's the right thing for my face.
This may be good for someone with true dry skin. My skin is combination/oily and also sensitive. It works nicely as a hand cream though... a small amount goes a long way!
I absolutely love this product! I put it on my face every night right before I go to bed, and when I wake up, my skin is so soft. It doesn't do much for my acne, but it doesn't promise to. After hearing great reviews on youtube about the Egyptian Magic cream, I decided to try it. After a week or so, I ended up going back to Apricot Night creme; the Magic cream wasn't as moisturizing as this. I love that it doesn't smell to bad either. In the end, I think this is a wonderful product and I'll definitely rebuy.
