This has been my absolute staple - my oily breakout-prone skin has not sprouted a single blemish since I started using this moisturiser! Everytime I try something new the zits come back, so I know I'll never stop using this beauty. The smell I actually kinda like - it's a clinical, plastic flowery type smell, but faint enough not to be offensive. It smooths over your skin easily, and at first you'll think that it just sits there, but give it 10 seconds and the next time you touch your skin it's disappeared, with just softer, firmer skin left. I wish it were cheaper, but you do use very little with each application. Very travel-friendly packaging.
I'm a convert to this stuff and I'm 1/2 way through the jar. And I'll be buying another one. I've tried all kinds of moisturizers and this one moisturizes without leaving me greasy. My hubby does refer to this stuff as the "contraceptive" lotion, since the smell is a real turn off (described as "old lady" like - maybe lavender??).
This was just nothing special to me. Read the hype and hoped for the best - but to me it was just an average moisturizer in cute packaging that costs way to much!
This moisturizer works really well as a night cream for those with oily skin. It sinks right into your skin, no greasy feeling, didn't make me break out... if anything, it improved my complexion. It's wonderful, except for... THE SMELL! Why, oh, why does it smell like that? The first time I caught a whiff, it reminded me of some kind of weird, metallic, iron-y type of scent. It is really a bizarre smell that's hard to even describe! If they could remove that odor, it would be perfect. Too bad!
I like this during the winter only. During the summer it makes my face very shiny. The smell doesn't really bother me that much.
Sometimes I use this as my night cream.
This product just doesn't do it for me. The moisturizer just sits on top of my skin. I can't imagine people using this after having chemical peels, as they have advertised. For the price, there are certainly better alternatives. This is definately going back.
Works wonders for me. Great to perk up my skin and make it glow in the a.m. The only product that has ever made a visible difference on my skin.
Update: New HG and much cheaper, alternating Nivea Creme and Clinique Total Turnaround.
This product smells so HORRIBLE. How could anyone like it????
I received a sample of this and had to throw it out before I finishsed it. It smells horrible, like plastic and the smell stays on the skin and doesn't go away. The smell somehow reminds me of plastic doll heads (???) I'm not sure why. Anyways, I must be allergic because it made my skin red, dry, and flaky. My skin is dry and sensitive.
Stinks like a monkey house. Did nothing for my skin except make my cheeks red as a baboon's butt (I tried this for 3 weeks between moisturizers to give it a chance)
I prefer UD's moisturizer far better.
