This is a really nice moisturizer for normal to oily skin. It smoothes on effortlessly, leaving behind a matte feeling and gives skin a radiant healthy look.
I do have dry skin especially around my mouth and nose, so this moisturizer isn't enough for colder months. I also have acne-prone skin and this product does not irritate my skin or break me out. I like to use this moisturizer in summer.
As I do use other skincare products, I'm not too sure of its claims to even out skin tone and texture, based on my personal experience of using this moisturizer for months.
Overall, this is just a nice moisturizer for people who already have nice skin.
I was reluctant to try this product since it was $15 and moisturizers, especially with SPF, always make me break out. Unfortunately, this product was no exception. After wearing this for a day, I had a cystic breakout in areas where I NEVER breakout. I immediately stopped wearing this and my skin cleared up soon after. I will not be trying it again!
I used this a few times and the first few times, it didnt feel heavy and pore clogging, but later on, my skin just didnt like it that much.
I may or may not buy this product again because it is a little pricier than neutrogena's moisturizer(oil free) which i love because i have acne prone, oily face. Neutrogena is good for acne prone skin types. This product lasts very long. i had it for 6 months and like i still have about 45%-50% product left ( i use it day and night). I use about 3 pumps in total daily. It smells like sunscreen(reminds me of summer =D) and it is easy to blend into your skin. there are tiny specks of gold shimmers here and there[cant see it unless you have light reflecting it]
I was hesitant to try this product, as I've read so many negative reviews about it on this site. However, I went ahead and bought it. I HATE wearing any type of foundation (and rarely wear makeup at all), so I have been looking for a moisturizer that will even out skin tone while providing an SPF. I have to say this is a GREAT moisturizer and really does even out my skin tone. It also does give just a hint of a glow, which I love. It absorbs quickly, leaving my skin very soft. My skin looks healthier with this product. Oh, and the smell is great - very light and clean. I honestly don't understand why so many women here says it smells badly. I will definitely keep using!
i bought this product at costco for 15 dollars for a set of two :D so i recommend going to costco. i dont know whether they discontinued it there though because i was in luck when i got the last package. i have to say, it really did make my face glow. it definitely evened out my skin tone. it just didnt do anything for my dark spots as it mentioned. really upset about that. but for 15 dollars for two of them, i have to give it 3 lippies.
I actually really love this moisturizer. I was a little hesitant at first because I was afraid it would make my combination skin look a little more on the oily side due to the brighteners, but I am happy to say it just left my face with a nice dewy glow. My face actually did look more radiant, even with a primer and some light powder foundation on top of it, you could tell there was a positive difference.
While I love this product as an everyday moisturizer, I found a reason to love this even more. When I wear foundation instead of powder, I mix one pump of this with my Revlon Colorstay foundation; it is the best thing ever. The brightening in the moisturizer gives my face a glow when I mix it with my foundation, and also helps to thin out the foundation to make it look less cakey. The combination of the two is absolutely amazing for me. That is the overall reason for me rating this as a 5, but it honestly is a good buy. In my opinion, it is worth the $15:)
I tried this because I like Aveeno and I liked the Positively Radiant cleansers and this had a sunscreen built in. Consistency is more like a sunscreen than a lotion. When I apply it on my skin, it doesn't feel like a lotion (with it's hydrating goodness sinking into the top layers of my skin) but rather a sunscreen (whereby the product sits atop your skin).
PROS: doesn't clog my pores, actually makes it look more even upon application, has sunscreen, sunscreen smell
CONS: applies and feels more like slick sunscreen, prevents makeup from adhering properly, makes my skin feel heavily-coated, and skin seems more oily in a few hours than if I didn't apply anything at all
Gave it 3 lippies because it's not awful (did even out skin tone upon application) but it isn't something I'd wear with makeup. Good for brief, barefaced excursions such as to the gym or pool
I love this product, and have found that it really works for me. I have been using it for 5 years now,and found that is really even out my over all skin tone. It is on the pricey side about 15$ per bottle but for me it's worth it. I feel like it is heavy enough to penetrate and deeply moisturize, but not be overly oily or greasy. I personally like the way it smells, it smells clean and fresh.I often mix it will a little bit of my tinted moisturizer before i leave for the day. I will say that after several uses the bottle does deflate and you have to take the top off to get any out, but for me it isn't a problem.
I've been using this for over two months with absolutely no skin tone correction, as advertised. Additionally, as others have mentioned, the sparkly/greasy aspect is unappealing. DO NOT GET THIS PRODUCT NEAR YOUR EYES! It burns. A lot! For that matter, the fumes from the fragrance can cause more eye watering. Why do I continue to use it? Simple. I paid about $15 for the tiny lil bottle and can't bring myself to throw it away til it's gone. I just dust powder over the moisturizer to remove the sparkles.
Save your money.
