I was very excited to get this b/c of the rave reviews. I used it once and back it went! It burned my sensitive skin when I put it on, got sticky, and woke up the next morning with my face peeling. Only for very oily skin with no sensitivity @ all!
I really like this moisturizer. It's the best I've used so far. It moisturizes just enugh for my combination skin and doesn't make me break out. I only use it on my dry parts and it works very well! I would definately reccomend this for normal-combination to slightly oily skin. Love it! UPDATE: this might make me break out so i'm cautious about buying more:(
I received a sample of this from a Mary Kay consultant. I had been wanting to try it badly after reading so many great reviews here. It sounded great for oily/combo skin which I do have.
I gave it a try and I gotta say I am not impressed. It did not moisturize like I thought it would. I put it on before my makeup and my skin was still really dried out in my T-zone area. It is not worth the money. I will not repurchase.
This product is the best I have ever used!!! I can highly recomend this if you have oily skin.
I love this stuff! It does not irritate my very sensitive skin and it makes my skin look so smooth. Even though I am more oily than dry I still get a little flakiness and this gel is so soothing and makes any flakiness disappear. I don't always like to have anti-aging ingredients in my moisturizer (which I think may contribute to flaking/peeling?) and this is perfect because it does not have anti-aging ingredients, it is just a moisturizer. A little goes a long way. Some people might not like the jar packaging but I think it is fine and it's a very pretty, modern looking package.
This is considered my "heavy" cream, since I have such acne prone skin, this is what I use during the winter when the dry heat is blasting and my skin starts acting crazy :0) acne prone and dry at the same time *sigh* I just add it to my routine of TW cleanser/ moisturizer & micro dermabrasion...but at night. I love it if only seasonally...which really stretches the $30 price tag! continued >>
Good moisturizing with minimal greasiness. The vitamin E in this product seems to help wounds on the face to heal faster. Very light fragrance. However being silicone-based, it leaves a silky film on my face that I don't like.
This is not suitable for using under the eyes as it stings if it gets into the eyes.
I love this product! I use the oil-free hydrating gel when I'm not using treatment products and it's like a drink of water. It feels so good on, and doesn't break me out!!! I will definitely be repurchasing this as it has become a HG item for me!!
I honestly think that this is what angels must wear on their face. I have very oily skin and this stuff is my new HG of moisturizers! I use it at night after I wash my face and wake up with goregously smooth skin. I use a light bit before foundation in the morning so it goes on smoother. The price is somewhat steep, 30.00 for a jar of it, but well worth the money!
This is a pretty good product, but I can't use it during the day under make-up as it makes my skin really oily. I have to use this at night as a night time moisturizer. It is very light and seems to be non-oily at first, but on my combo skin it turns out to be just too much hydration for the day. I'd rather use the MK's nighttime recovery, but they have discontinued it so eventually when ebay runs out of it I'll have to switch. This is supposed to be an anytime moisturizer, but since I can only use it at night I'm giving it a 3. It's also pretty expensive and about half the size of the nighttime recovery.
