I bought this because I was using harsh moisturizers that were more like acne medication (i.e. Clean and Clear) that led to redness and dry spots on my combo skin. This did not totally eradicate them (I still get peculiar dry spots, circular - allergic reaction?) but made them much better, not to mention there is little tightness and a dry feeling on my skin the first time I used it (months ago) till now. Products lasts forever - you need very little or you may possibly get oily. Absorbs super quickly, light, but you can feel it moisturize. Can sting/tingle slightly (eye area, extremely exfoliated skin, etc). But does its job. Impressive.
Besides dropping the jar a couple of times, the packaging is okay I just make sure my hands are clean when I dip in! Also I find that i need just a dab on my forehead and cheeks and spread it all over and that's enough, too much won't soak into my skin. It is heavily scented which I could always do without and it burns if I put it on when my face is wet, but if it's dry then I can apply it all over (even by my eyelids, ek, the jar doesn't say not to!). Overall it is a good day cream, =) O and it does work well to use under foundation, although I do wait 20 minutes before applying foundation when I am wearing it, fyi I use Revlon CS.
Quite light but very moisturising, I always buy Nivea creams. Whilst the scent can be a bit heavy and 'old lady' ish this bad boy does a brilliant job and for less than a fiver. win.
I have oily/slightly sensitive skin that is prone to small clogged pores. I bought this hoping that dehydrated skin was the problem for my excessive oily skin. After one week of using this ONLY on my cheeks, I havent noticed a dramatic difference. My face is slightly less oily, but nothing to be excited about. It does burn after rubbbing in after I have washed my face (ie.sensitive skin), for a few seconds, so i would not recommend for people with very sensitive skin. but it does hydrate quite well, and leaves a slight dewy look that is healthy. I am kind of on the fence with this one, i will continue to use it, and if i notice any breakouts from it i will update. but for now its okay, just not for very sensitive skin.
I happen to love creams that come in old fashioned glass jars, call me a loonie. This one is great, it moisturizes just enough for a winter day and not too much for a summer day. Great texture that melts in your skin in 1 minute. One of my favorite day creams.
I first got the product because St ives apricot cleanser dried my skin out like crazy. It was like 15$ for a very small amount. It did last me awhile though -i use it day & night. it moisturizes well but makes me extremely oily through out the day that i like like i dipped my face into a pan of oily literally. its disgusting. it doesnt break me out which is good because drugstore stuff break my face out. after im done i will buy another moisturizer. i might buy it again. do not really reccommend for oily/combo skin continued >>
I really like this cause it makes my skin feels so fresh! It moisurizes good and it's not to fat for my mixed skin. The price is okey. The only thing that's a little con for me is the packaging, you have to put your fingers in it every time you take it on. But, this is how it is on most face moisturizers. Anyway, i really like this and i will probably buy it again!
This is a great moisturiser if you've got oily skin, probably the best one I've found so far. And its really cheap, which is always a bonus!
It's a good product but it does no miracles. I have this moisturizer for normal/combination skin and I sure wish I had bought the one for dry skin. It moisturizes, but not much. My skin is more on the oily side but the normal version still leaves me with dry patches. It doesn't clog pores but I'm not so sure if it breaks me out, I guess it leaves my sensitive skin irritated and that doesn't help me with my acne. It does have that light gel texture which is great for oily skin, but L'oreal Pure Zone Anti Regreasing Moisturiser is more moisturizing and makes my skin less irritated. Aqua sensation tends to sting if your skin is irritated or damaged and makes my eyes burn if it gets anywhere close to my eyes. I wouldn't buy this product again, it's not very suitable for sensitive skin.
Absolute love! I had been looking for a light, night-time moisturizer for my combo/oily skin and this has been HG for me. Most moisturizers made for evening use, even when oil-free, make me break-out come morning. I will often wake up to find large red blotches, white-heads or full-blown cystic acne on my chin and forehead. Daytime moisturizers made for oily-skin were just not providing enough for me and I was beginning to get dry patches here and there, but still remaining oily in others.
This gel-cream solved the problem and I now have well-moisturized, even-toned skin with very few, if any, pimples. I use this in conjuction with a wrinkle serum and have had no adverse affects. This dries to a nice light finish, with no stickiness or residue.
The cooling sensation, along with the scent is nice. It may be a bit strong for others, but I love it!
