This is my all time favorite for use in the winter, or anytime my skin is really dry. Its the only cream that I think really works, other than Eucerin for DRY skin. I like it MUCH better though because it isnt thick and greasy. Its smoothe and creamy, it soaks in really well and I dont need to apply it every hour like other creams and lotions that claim to be for dry skin. The smell is pleasant and can be used on those who have the most sensitive of skin. The tub that it comes in is a love/hate for me. I love that I can open the jar and take as much or as little as I want without having to squeeze and mess around with any tube... however I hate that its impossible to travel with and keep on the go, as it just takes up too much space. I find it really hard to spend ridiculous amounts of money on lotions just meant to soothe dry skin, so I like that this is a product that works that is within my budget. I have applied this to my face (but not my whole face, just spot treated the super dry patches) and have never had a problem with breakouts. I dont know that I would want to apply it to my whole face, just because I have spicific face products for that- but if you need to, you could. I give it 4 lippies. Its a very solid product, but with a few trade offs!
My mom has been using this ever since i was a little girl and she has absolutely beautiful skin. I decided to give it a try and i fell in love with it just after a few uses.
what i like about this cream:
-has a cooling effect when applied
-great for dry dull skin
-calms redness and irritation
-does not cause breakouts
-moisturizes and hydrates skin
Price is right, scent is pleasant, silky feel, good all-round product--if you don't have sensitive skin, that is, otherwise don't risk it. I bought this inexpensive cream because of budgetary constraints and was very happy with it for a few months. No clogged pores (though at 45 it's less of an issue now), sinks in nicely with no greasy after feel and a nice matte finish, spreads on the skin easily and smoothly. However, after a few months my skin became sensitized to an ingredient (probably the fragrance), leading to redness and burning wherever I used the product. I even tried using it on my body, my hands, but wherever I try to use it now, my skin protests, painfully. I don't always react to fragranced products, even on the face, but if you've ever reacted to fragranced lotion, don't take a chance on this one.
- moisturizes well
- lots of product in one $5 container
- paraben free
- doesn't clog pores ( which is definitely a plus for me because I have acne prone skin )
- great price!
- sometimes can make your skin feel greasy but trust me it's not!
I have dry skin and I wanted to try something new in hopes of a lotion that would seriously moisturize my face. It was only about $6 which is half the price of most other drug store face lotions and it had great reviews so I went ahead and purchase it. Initially I liked this product I liked the smell and the thickness made me feel like it really would moisturize. The next day I noticed my skin was softer and shinier. Then sadly the terror occurred! About a week in I broke out TERRIBLY all over my cheeks and chin. I am not prone to pimples and I have never had a break out like this in my entire life granted I am only 19 but still. I have never felt so ashamed of my face before. I stopped using it on my face and only used it around my eyes and my pimples were clearing up a bit. But dumb me didn't want to admit to myself that it was this product causing the acne because i never usually breakout due to a product so I started applying it to my face again. My face is now worse than ever!! My face had been the clearest it's ever been before using this so I am really upset. I know most people appear to be fine but be careful with this product that's all I'm saying. It isn't oil free so maybe I have a bad reaction to the mineral oil in this product. :'( i will continue using it as an eye cream though...
Luxuriously rich cream that hydrates dry skin. The scent is quite pleasant and calming, despite some of the reviews I have read. The price is unbeatable and quite a drugstore find. I have tried this as a facial night cream, but it proved too emollient for my face. Instead, I use the Pond's Crema S as my night cream (HG status!) because it is a tad less thick than this version. I do give this cream a 5 lippie rating because I use it on the rest of my body and it works out all my dry bits.
Give Pond's a try! Once you find the right formulation for your skin type, you'll be hooked! The price is a bargain. I do wish they would stop testing on animals. Hopefully they will come out with a moisturizer that is fragrance free as well.
EDIT: Omg how goodies this stuff? My skin has been so dry and irritated that I switched to using this again because I find the scent so calming. I apply a very thin layer and I wake up with super soft skin. The key is to apply it lightly. Granny knows best afterall and this basic is amazing!
I absolutely LOVE this lotion. I can't afford the higher end skin products right now, so when it was very cold in NJ I decided to try this for the dry peeling skin on my face. The first night I used it I spread it liberally on my face and neck after washing, and I woke up with baby soft skin!!! I've been using this so far for about a month. I also have been having very red skin for the past couple of years, and after using this every night and morning it's actually starting to fade A LOT! I've tried everything that is priced reasonably and this is by far the best yet. I started using it on my body too. It's warm out now and I still wear it daily under makeup and at night, it doesn't have a greasy feeling because it sinks right in. My skin has not looked this good in a long time. The jar I bought is lasting a very long time too. When I run out eventually I will definitely be buying this again and again. I paid about six dollars for it and for the quality of the product and the price, it's very worth it!!!! Oh and BTW- A lot of reviewers say they hate the packaging, but as long as you have clean hands it should be fine. I think the jar is adorable and it makes it seem more luxurious for some reason!
This cream does not work for me. I find that it sits on top of my skin and doesn't sink in. Also, the fragrance in this cream is so strong that it irritates my face. I'm glad that it works for others, but it does not work for me.
I actually purchased the Dollar General knock-off version of this, because the ingredients were the same and it was cheaper, and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. I recently had a baby, and my skin has been dry/dehydrated since (although I still have an oily t-zone, yay). I wanted a nice hydrating moisturizer to use at night when I don't care if my face is shiny, and this had minimalist ingredients (I break out from most moisturizers). This hydrates really well, and absorbs into my skin a lot better than I thought it would. I got the 3.9 oz. size, and the little jar is so cute, and I can actually throw it in my purse when I need it. The baby powder scent doesn't bother me, but it IS kind of strong. I'm happy with this, and will continue to use it as my nightly re-hydration cream!
I love this moisturizer! I skeptical at first at buying it because it was for dry skin and it had mineral oil in it(I have oily skin) but low and behold it is amazing! It reduced my oily skin so I have more normal skin now! During winter my nose and cheeks get dry and this fixes it right up! Even in summer this does not make me oily, soaks in quickly, no residue, and did not break me out whatso ever. I shall forever repurchase it! Plus the tub lasts forever!
