I feel so sad that this gets such bad reviews, but everyone has different skin so I can't expect everyone to have the same results. I have been using this for years now. Every now and then I go and try something new, but I always come back to this. I have normal to dry cheeks and forehead and slightly oily(in summer) nose and chin. This stuff just works for me. My skin feels plush and hydrated but not greasy. I actually like the fact that it doesn't have a sunscreen in it because I like to add my sunscreen on top. I use other anti-aging products at night as well to add to this. But the point behind this moisturizer is to return your skin to a balanced state after cleansing. You should feel normal after using this(or the DDMG). Now if you want to add more moisture, you can. But this should only be use to restore, not to add anything extra. To some this may sound ridiculous, but it makes perfect sense to me.
It took me a LONG time to find a moisturizer I liked, didn't break me out and wasn't unreasonably expensive. This is IT for me. Nothing better for my kind of skin. Don't trust bad reviews here, because you never know what will work for you. It's a crapshoot, ladies. Also, I LOVE how it has absolutely no fragrance in it and it immediately leaves my skin soft after I use it. Like uncommonly soft.
I have only used this one time so far but I do like it. I have a very oily t-zone and I have found that using this and revlon's perfecting primer together is a very good combination for oily skin. Throughout the day I get next to no oil whatsoever (Just a tiny on my forehead). I found that my skin feels a lot more hydrated and plump when I'm using this tho, so I do think its a great moisterizer. The only thing is that if you do have oily skin you will need to wear some kind of oil control primer after because this would probably make your skin a lot oilier and shinier alone. xo
I don't think I have ever bought this product once but I've had a constant supply of it one way or another for as long as I've been concerned with skincare. They literally give it away. But I would not buy this product even though I'll keep using it if they give it to me. It's too expensive for a fairly ordinary moisturizer. It's moisturizing enough for me and doesn't feel greasy or smell bad. My skin has no bad reaction with it. And you can't beat free.
I bought the dry skin version but I feel I need more moist than this. Doesn't do enough for me. This is a very light moisturizer and probably works best for oily skin.
I like the pump bottle the lotion comes in but it makes me greasy and clogs my pores. However, I am prone to clogs and very oily and many people in my family who have less sensitive and less oily skin love this product.
not moisturizing enough for my combination skin. my face produce oil throughout the day by using this moisturizer. i tried the gel one and it doesnt provide enough moisture but do keep my oiliness better. i think this is a good moisturizer for summer time though. however, i do like the packaging its convenient. will no repurchase this again
In short; a really average moisturizer. I like that there are no heavy fragrance and feels "fresh" on your skin. I don't like that it doesn't leave your skin moisturized for very long, or have any other skin benefits. Would not repurchase.
Clinque almost always gives this away in their bonus gift package. It sucks!! No matter how many times I give it a try it never moisturizes period. My sister in law loves this stuff so obviously it works well for many people. She cannot use anything else because she ends up with a rash so im sure this stuff is great for those who cannot tolerate plant essentials and other ingredients. But for me it didnt work.
This has a wonderful smell, but it doesn't work well for me. After an hour or so, it feels like I've never moisturized at all. It's pretty watery for my liking and doesn't absorb well. It's very mild and doesn't irritate my skin, though.
