This moisturiser is quite thick and very moisturizing (hence why they say it's recommended for men 40+). It most definately helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and feels like it's tightening my skin. It gives me a nice healthy looking glow, with some shine (but not a greasy shine). Despite being quite thick, it does absorb very well for me. My only critisism of this cream is the packaging which is a jar. I would much rather it was in a pump bottle, but that aside, it's a brilliant anti-aging moisturizer. It also has a great, woody/citrus fragrance as does the rest of the Lancome Men skincare line.
