I have been given this a couple of times as a GWP. It stinks and is too greasy, I would never buy it.
Oh the smell of this cream! I love it. I use it twice a day and it helps moisturize my dry flaky skin. I can feel the difference within days after using it. My skin is smooth and doesn't feel as tight and dull anymore. And the flakiness is gone! I love how it's not a very greasy cream which is excellent for the summer when I have combo skin. My only con is the packaging, as I have to dip a Q-tip in the pot. But other than that I have no problems with it. I have used 3/4 of the pot already. I will definetly buy this again.
This has become my very favorite moisturizer. I love the cucumber smell and the texture. I have dry skin and it makes it feel soft and dewy. It goes on smooth under my make up. I prefer the dewy to matte look though.
For the first time, I got very dry skin this winter so I bought this moisturizer instead of drug store brands hoping it'll work better. Unfortunately, I don't see/feel a difference between this product and ones I bought later at the drugstore for a fraction of the cost. I also don't like the faint "nutty" smell. I guess it's supposed to smell like cucumber, but I didn't particularly like the smell and would rather it were unscented.
I got a trial size of this in a GWP, and I love it! I'm so pleased that EL came out with an SPF 15 that has proper UVA protection! The texture of this cream is gorgeous and it smells very nice - like cucumber. My makeup goes on so smoothly after I use this cream. I'd definitely invest in this again!
It's good for my combination skin type. Not too oily, not too dry.
Most reasonably priced (for EL moisturizers). Love this product--my favorite parts---the smell and the texture. My makeup application is flawless after using this in the morning. Great product!
This cream did not work on my combination skin. I tried it for a whole week before writing a review and by the end of the week, my skin was flaky and irritated. I know it was the cream because I am using the same cleanser and foundation that I have always used. The smell is nice (cucumber) and it feels rich but it made my foundation (EL) look horrible. I used an old cheap favorite, Nivea Alpha Flavin lotion and my skin improved immediately. At $37US, I am deeply disappointed in this cream.
I like it a lot. It's an adequate sunscreen for slightly oily-dry combo girls like me. Not a cheapie, but worths what you pay.
I purchased this product as a result of my never ending search for a moisturizer with SPF 15 or more. With first application of this product I was turned off. The Fragrance was a bit too much and not at all pleasant. Second problem was that consistency of the cream... much too thick. It felt like I was applying butter to my face... not a good feeling. The worst problem was within two days of using this product I developed serious Acne. Boy did it clog every pore on my face. All in all I think that Estee Lauder offers much better moisturizes than this one. I actually sold this product on e-bay as there was no point in keeping it around.
