A nice moisturizer with a gentle sunscreen in it, but too greasy for my combination skin. My skin did look better with it, but after a few hours my t-zone was slick and oily even with Idealist underneath it. Too bad, really wanted to love this.
This is an excellent product. It really just sinks into your skin, so light. My skin always looks and feels wonderful once I use it. This is my HG moisturizer. I have been using it for a good few years now, and I can tell you, the benefits are showing. I still get asked for ID when buying cigarettes or at a bar (I'm nearly 30). I definitely think of this product as a luxury.
Pretty mediocre cream, especially for the price, It's strictly for normal skin but most normal skins can use just about any moisturizer, especially one cheaper than this one.
The only thing I like about this is the pleasant cucumber smell. The SPF is not photostable BTW continued >>
God I wanted to love this. I worked with a girl and it worked great for her but this broke me out. When it comes to EL products the only thing that does not break me out is the Advanced Night Recovery. I love the smell and it is so light and fresh but after 3 days, here comes all the pimples! And when I break out in places I normally dont I know it just does not agree with me. But it may work for others. I think EL is great for more mature skin. When I say mature I mean people that do not have any acne issues.
I am glad that I got a sample before a full size. This cream is not comparable to my favorite Olay daily UV complete which only costs 1/4 or 1/5.
I have normal skin, a bit combination on the oily side around T zone in summer. This cream feels nice and rich when just put on and I do love the cucumber scent. However, rich as it feels, in 10 minutes my skin becomes tight. This only happened to me before when I didn't put any moisturizer after cleansing.
Totally not worth the money. I am not sure if I really want to finish the sample.
Got a free sample with my foundation, this stuff was amazing.
I have acne prone skin that is dry and I use a lot of harsh anti bacterial cleansers toners etc, but this moisutizer didn't let all that show on my skin!
I ran out and now my skin is horrifically dry. Not having this has shown me how good it was, too bad it's so expensive.
If I could, I'd buy it again! Just don't use this if you hav normal/oily skin. Only dry skin, otherwise it may be too moisturizing for you.
This left my face too shiny and sticky if I tried to use it to provide adequate sunscreening. To be fair moisturizers do this to me thats why I dont wear a moisturizer during the day except since this has spf I didnt want to wear it at night. I do love the scent very refreshing cucumber like. The texture was very nice and spread easily. I got it as a gift o/w I would not have bought it bec I dont use spf moisturizer. I didnt want to throw it away. I hate wasting anything and if it came in a pump I would have given it to someone but not since I have been dipping into a tub. Well I found that it feels great on my neck :) No shine or stickiness just very soft skin,luxurious feeling but not enough to repurchase at that price.
i stole this from my mom as it was just sitting unused by her bathroom sink. i think i see why she hasn't used it much, after wanting this to really work for me, i just can't seem to like it. i have normal to dry skin yet using this product which was labeled for normal/combo felt way too greasy, and seems to sit on top of the skin rather than absrob and moisturize. the only thing i like about this product is it has a refreshing smell of cucumbers but besides that it's basically useless.
I have really good, normal-type skin but this product actually broke me out for the first time in years. I cleanse well in the evening but i suspect my cleanser wasnt strong enough to cut through the ingredients in the daywear cream. Needless to say, i stopped using it and gave it to my boyfriend as his thicker man skin can take products without reaction to them.
This made my skin inflamed, raw and bright red for at least a week. I had the most serious breakouts after only a few days of using it and my complexion is normally very clean. It was horrible and no amount of makeup could cover it up.
