I'm 30, asian, used to have dry skin but am starting to become oily in my tzone. My main concern is preventing wrinkles. I usually use Nuskin products but their cream was doing nothing for me. I randomly got some samples for this product and actually went out and bought it(which I never do.. or write reviews... but I seriously love this cream)!
It doesn't claim to do any crazy tricks, literally just comfortable face cream. I love that I can wear this cream without worrying about blackheads forming on my nose... no clogging up pores! Also, I love that it doesn't have spf in it so i don't need to buy a separate night cream. The texture is really smooth and very thick which I love, because i can still feel it on when I wake up in the morning. I just use the "DAY" cream at night as well. I'm very sensitive to smell and this smells very florally but in a pleasant way. The scent lasts for about an hour.
Also I don't wear a lot of makeup just a little bit of concealer around the nose and on dark circles. This cream makes your skin look like it's glowing from the inside not oily and gross. However since I'm pretty oily in the tzone area i need a little bit of powder to touch up during the day. When I wear makeup, I let the cream soak in for 30 min before applying which helps the makeup stay.
The only negative thing I have to say about this is that I generally hate pots. Wish it came in a tube for hygene's sake.
This may be the closest thing to a miracle product I have ever purchased, and I'm usually extremely skeptical of the ability of any makeup or skincare product to actually have an effect. I'm in my 30s and have extremely dry, pale, sensitive, acne-prone skin (and I break out from dryness, not from excess oil, so "oil-free" products geared to teens are useless for me).
This moisturizer has quite literally saved my skin. I discovered it by accident, in a drugstore in France while on a ski trip, and was delighted to find it at home in Canada. It works in the cold, dry winters where indoor heaters and bitter winds will sap the moisture out of anything. It rescued my skin after a recent camping trip in the desert; when I got home from the trip, my skin was itchy, flaky and felt like sandpaper, but after two days of applying this cream, it was back to normal.
I use this day and night, winter and summer. It doesn't make me break out. It smells awesome. It glides on smooth. It actually helps my pores look less visible.
The only thing I wish it had was a sunscreen, since I end up also having to use a different (less effective) cream with an SPF factor to prevent sun damage. And the only other quibble I have is that the cream is so rich that it can make a bit of a difficult base to apply makeup over it. But other than that, this is my desert-island face cream, and I'll be stocking it in large quantities as long as it's available.
Its been 3 years my skin turned from dry to oily; been to derma and was told to follow the usual protocol, removing oil, which I followed for yrs... I bought some cream for oily skin and got a sample of this and tried anyway. This cream showed me I do not have oily skin. Now I find it to have been in distress. Reve de miel calmed it down and hidrated it so well it does not have to produce oil like crazy to defend itself. My skin is happy and beautiful, finally being understood!
this cream smells so good!it smells like sweet honey! It's verry moisturizing,leaves the skin super soft and smooth!the application is verry soft and it glides smoothly on the skin!it also brings a nice glow to the skin!For winter or after a day out in the summer,it's perfect! I love it!
This is my HG cream when my skin needs more moisture. I have very oily skin and mostly use very lightweight moisturizers to keep the oiliness in check. However, last winter was very cold and my otherwise never-dry skin got dry (only on the surface though. Sigh!) and sensitive. My whole face was red and I had to use my moisturizing mask everyday!
This product saved my skin. I never had any troubles with my skin getting too oily when using this cream, although it's the thickest cream I've ever owned. It's texture is like butter! It's super nice to apply because it's really thick and smells good. I never had a dry moment after using it.
I've already bought another cream for next winter. Now I'll be prepared!
The packaging is very nice, but I once dropped the pot and the lid broke in some places...
My skin irritates very easily especially with dermatitis. Although this cream is expensive, it works. I will keep on buying same with the makeup remover from NUXE.
I am very satisfied with this moisturizer. I have used many department store moisturizers before and this by far is a very good bang for your buck. It keeps you well hydrated.
I have a very sensitive skin and many botanical products break me out. With this moisturizer there was no cystic acne or inflmmation or rashes. I would say this moisturzier felt very similar to Decleor Rose Neroli balm. I am almost done using the first jar and will order for more.
I bought this in the new year, because it's meant for sensitive skin. It's supposed to reduce redness, irritations and hard skin. It's a very rich cream that can feel a little greasy if you use too much and, sadly, it did not reduce any redness or irritation in my face at all and since that's the main reason I bought it, I won't be buying it again. I think it's a decent moisturizer for the winter or used sparingly, but it does nothing whatsoever for sensitivity.
I was so close to loving this!! The smell is beyond beautiful and I miss the scent already. Unfortunately, it ended up being anything but comfortable for me. It gradually dried my skin out every time I applied it, making it extremely tight, hot, red, and very, very irritated. All my pores seemed "puckered" and visible, and suspect it could be the amount/type of alcohol used in this product. However, it didn't break me out - I started off applying it to wet skin and as my skin adjusted, I could apply it neat on dry skin without a breakout. It cleared up my skin amazingly, but again, this could be down to its astringent affect. I have very fragile, hyper-reactive skin, so for someone less sensitive, I could understand this working really really well, hence the 4 stars. But I've had to (begrudgingly) ditch this one.
I bought this in desperation - my skin had reacted to another product and was dehydrated, hot, red, peely and generally unhappy. The only thing I could tolerate was Emu oil but that wasn't working as a make up base and while my skin calmed a lot with it it was still flakey and dry.
Bought this and did a patch test - no reaction. So tried it on my T zone (less upset than my cheeks) still no reaction so next day applied it all over.
This is a super soothing calming cream my skin just drank it up (you can also use it as a mask). Within a few days my skin was looking much calmer and more moisturised and less flaky. Keeping my fingers crossed my skin still tolerates it after a few uses but so far so good.
The cream itself is a thic but none greasy texture, cooling a soothing to apply and a good base for make up. It smells gorgeous and although not practical for travel the glass jar looks nice and makes it feel luxurious to use.
Ideal for very dry, parched and upset skin.
Edit - sadly this started to break me out and block pores so I had to stop using it. Very soothing and highly moisturising but a bit too rich for my skin.
Edited again to add that I got this out again as my skin had become very dehydrated and flaky following an illness. It has worked brilliantly and I have been using it for 2 weeks now and no breakouts this time. Obviously my skin needs the extra moisturization this time round!
