-No discerning scent for those sensitive to harsh chemical scents
-Seemingly gentle enough
-Leaves a slightly greasy feel on face after the initial moisture sets in
-Redness is not alleviated
-Clogged a few pores on cheeks
All in all: will not buy again--gonna return it actually (I tried this for a week)
This was the wrong moisturizer for me. I break out easily, and too often, using this gives me pimples the next morning. :( I'll have to stick with Cetaphil until I settle on something that doesn't make me break out.
PROS: moisturizes, dries fast, not too thick and not too thin, not oily, skin feels comfortable
CONS: does not reduce redness
OVERALL: normal/average moisturizer, for normal skin, not oily or dry skin, does not reduce redness in anyway >.<
My almost-HG cream. I haven't found another cream suitable. I hate scented moisturizers; they can be so over-powering. This has a great consistency. Not too oily (I also loved Lancome's Nutrix Royal, but much too oily!), not too thin. My skin feels fine after, not too moisturized but comfortable. This costs 20CAD but I've never bought it full-priced. TBS has a lot of 50% off sales/promos, so I always stock up during. I'm still out for my perfect night cream but with my scent-aversion, it'll be a long journey. Also, I find jars and tubs to be less hygienic but creams rarely come in tubes.
I got a sample of this and excited to try it out because i finally got my skin to clear up and thought this would get rid of my faint redness. it moisturized my skin and faded my red spots. a couple days later i broke out, BAD! i don't know if they're little zits or little hives. either way they're all over my face and popped out AT THE SAME! my face is ruined and this the only new change to my skin care routine. not purchasing full size for sure! and this has safe ingredients and supposedly good for sesitive skin. i am furious!
EDITED UPDATE (original review below asterisk):
After using this cream for about a month on just the small trial/sample size that you can get in the kit... I purchased the full size and I am happy to say that it agrees with my skin just as much as it did the first week I used it. My skin loves loves loves this stuff and I'm not afraid to wear it during the day and my skin is soft and smooth and glowing and pale. I have sensitive skin and it definitely helps calm it down. No, it doesn't heal breakouts, but it allows my skin's natural balance and pH to do what it's supposed to. It keeps my skin supple and paired with an eye cream, it's absolutely lovely. I recommend trying the sample/trial size first before committing to the full size because there is quite a lot there, but I can't recommend it highly enough....
I've been using this for about a week now. Due for a review, I think. The cream is thick, rich, and soothing. It's dense but not greasy, creamy but not oily. It smooths on like a cream but then dries down for a gel-like finish. Okay, I think I might be exaggerating a bit, but it allows my face to feel smooth and alleviates any dry patches and it's comfortably moisturized... not oily or greasy. It's also superbly fast absorbing. My skin is glowing and pleasant when I'm done with it. I have light redness on the cheeks that this helps combat. No, it doesn't fade away the scars or the hyperpigmentation, but it certainly helps alleviate their harsh appearance. My skin drinks this stuff up. You only need a really really tiny bit. Anyone who thinks otherwise will probably have unfortunate oily mishaps with this. Otherwise... very pleasant dealings.
I love this stuff.
It really does sooth. My skin feels nice, relaxed and smooth when I wake up after a night with this on. It also make rednesses fade really quickly.
For a night cream it is relatively light, not as thick or heavily moisturizing as other night creams. That's a plus for me though. I do use it as a day cream too sometimes. It's just a very good all-rounder. One doesn't need a whole lot to cover the entire face.
If my skin stays as it is, I'll defenitely repurchase.
i bought this product because tea tree oil is change their packaging so there is no tea tree in store and because my night cream is almost gone, i bought this
and the result is my face became very very oily
it's super oily!!
i will never recommended this product to my oily skin friend
because it will make your face worst and oily
but this product is good if my skin is sunburned
it's very help to recondition the skin and make the skin not really hurt
Wish it came in a more sanitary pump. Regardless, this cream is moisturizing, sinks in, seems to calm my skin. Perfect for nighttime, daytime, anytime my skin is looking dull.
Unfortunately this cream was too heavy for me .. within 1 week it clogged up my face and yielded the worst break out of my life.
