This product worked great as night cream.
it made my skin feel smooth and glowy the next day.
However, i do not like the smell. it smells like plastic, which is why i gave it a 4.
Bottom line: I love it regardless of the smell. It does fantastic job of making my skin smooth!
I know they say this is for all skin types, but it really is not good for oily or acne prone skin. It was way too heavy for my skin, no matter how little I put on. I tried to give it time to set before putting makeup over it, but it took a really long time & the makeup never went on well. I ended up even more oily than usual & I broke out pretty badly. For someone with dry skin, this might be good, but I won't be trying it again. continued >>
My first review...
I was looking for a great moisturizer since during winter my skin gets weird dry patches all over and since I had and the PURITY from Philosophy and love it, I was really excited about this one. But after a coulple of days using, I woke up with a bunch of pimples on my fore head and chin, (I usually don't break out) I was horrified. Disapointment..
This smells so bad. I love purity made simple and the microdelivery system. I honestly can't stand the smell of this. I've gotten samples a couple of times and each time I'm amazed at how bad it smells. I can't use it long enough to tell if it works.
Weird how so many people are commenting on the smell, because that's one of the qualities I love about this creme! Also really nice is the whipped, fluffy texture that seems to just melt right into my skin. After using this for a few weeks, my skin seems more supple and 'glowy'. The only thing I would complain about is the price- I got this in Marshall's though, so I think it was cheaper than it would normally be. Good stuff!
This product was hyped up a lot, so I thought I would try it out. When I applied it, it was harsh on my sensitive skin, and burned my eyes, and made them tear. I recommend keeping your eyes shut for at least a minute after applying. Philosophy products are usually good for sensitive skin, so this took me off guard. I did noticed my skin felt smoother after two weeks, and looked better. I recommend this moisturizer before bed, but definitely not in the morning to wear under makeup. It doesn't last very long, and is a bit expensive for what it does.
My mom gave me a jar of this, and a bunch of red flags went up. It definitely smells chemically, and it's thick (almost like crisco?). So I assumed it would irritate my sensitive skin and aggravate my adult acne. Surprisingly this stuff has been GREAT. My skin tone and texture have visibly improved, and has done wonders for my acne (i.e. no more breakouts, which is amazing). Given my skin issues, pleasant smell is last on my list of priorities. However, if you're sensitive so smells, definitely get a sample first because people aren't kidding when they say it stinks.
This STINKS! I'm going to return this because it gives me a headache whenever I put it on. Performance-wise, I haven't really noticed much difference from my Shiseido Skincare Day Moisture Protection. I suggest getting a sample before buying.
When I first used this cream, I thought there was something wrong with it. The smell that comes with it is undeniably horrifying. I thought about returning it because I could not stand using it as my daily moisturizer, but I didn't because I wanted to see if it worked. And it did, for a while. The first time I used it, my skin did feel softer, but after that first time I didn't notice a change. I would not buy this again.
i have wanted to try this product for ages have heard great things about it! NEVER WILL I WASTE MONEY ON THIS!!! i bought a small trial sized set so glad i didn't waste my money on full sized, the cream itself looks good and goes on and sinks in well BUT it smells horrible i mean vile almost made me retch and the smell lingers for hours i also developed a couple of horrible cyst like spots on my face i will never use these products again and because of my reaction to the products i wont bother with any other Philosophy products such a shame as i wanted to try these for a while
