I received a sample of this, from a generous swapper. I have allergies and sometimes, my skin gets a little "wigged out". I should add that my skin is acne prone and lately it's been extremely dry, due to acne potions and the cold Ohio Winter. I've been saving this sample until I really need it, which is NOW! I think my latest skin irritation is due to one of my sweet kitties. She likes to sleep curled up next to my face. (I'm allergic to cats, but my eyes are usually what bother me, not my skin) I've been using Clarins Skin Beauty Repair Concentrate--also a sample size--on certain spots, when my skin gets irritated. That's what I used last night, but when I woke up, it looked like more of a rash. Red, itchy and SUPER irritated! I dug around in my stash and found this little miracle in a packet! I washed my face with a gentle cleanser and applied a layer all of my face and a bit more where my skin is "mad". No more itching! It's not irritated at all. I'm so impressed with this product, it's blown my mind, to say the least. BTW: I'm allergic to ragweed, pollen, etc. and I've had this cream on for almost an hour with no problems! I'm going to add a thin layer of Clarins Skin Beauty Repair Concentrate over this and see if that doesn't help clear my skin up. I guess I'm gonna have to purchase a full size of this product, to keep on hand. Will update if I have any reactions to this.
I use this as my everyday moisturizer -- I mix a 50:50 glob of this and PC's skin recovery moisturizer (which I find too thick on it's own) and am good to go. This really seems to be helping my breakout prone, super sensitive skin deal with the dry air of winter. A lifesaver (or at least a skinsaver) for me!
Location : Bangkok, Thailand - Very hot temperature, polluted, sunny

Results (until now : Oct 11, 2006) :
The texture is quite thick but easy to spread on your face.
I love the light scent and nice natural ingredients (Great for vegan~!)
This cream makes my face much clearer, smoother & more even.
It is so gentle for my sensitive, acne prone skin without causing break outs.
No bad reactions at all. Will difinitely re-purchase :)
Packaging : Decent Quality
Will keep using and let you know more later ...
I like it. Because i have sensitive skin.Very GOOD
this product surprised me. i'm glad i bought it.
i have this problem where my skin is dry and needs moisture but everything that is remotely moisturising and rich will break me out.
this on the other hand is rich and luxurious when applied but it didnd't break me out at all. i'm not sure if it prevents break out but my skin feels and looks better.
sometimes i use it with my day care face lotion in the morning. just as a anti-blemish moisturising sorta cream.
no unbearable scent. it sinks in well in my skin.
Fortunately,I got some samples of this along with my tube and was able to try it out before I opened my full size tube..The cream is thick but sinks in quickly and is extremely moisturizing.UNFORTUNATELY..I could KICK myself for not reading the reviews on this before trying it..Another reviewer clearly stated she had an allergic reaction to this as Calendula is a close member of the ragweed family.I too am allergic to ragweed and this cream made me start itching after about 5 mins& left me with a minor rash..in closing,do alittle research on products before you start to use them:)
I really really like this moisturiser!!!! Having gone through one 40ml tube and now on my second i think it is time for a review. This is a lovely calming moisturising cream, that is surprisingly light and doesnt block my pores. I have been using it morning and night over the last few months (although now i am trialling some dermalogica skin smoothing cream) and my skin really likes this. It is affordable, although Jurlique tend to bump up their prices randomly. It is hygenic, tube packaging which i find easy to get every last bit out of. Overall, a lovely product for my sometimes reactive, normal/combo skin.
I adore this moisturising cream. It truely exceeded my expectations. I don't really know where to begin. It is very moisturising and I find that it is extremly soothing and gentle on my sensitive/combination skin... i also love the light smell. It is very moisturising, but how you use it depends. It depends on....if you have oily or combo skin this is great to use as a night cream, and if you have dry skin then try something a little richer over the top. Overall it is definately worth the price, as it is such good quality. All you have to do is look at the ingredients list (a very important tip in choosing skincare) i love natural skincare. This evens out my skin and EVEN rids of lines around my eyes/neck etc. Couldn't reccomend this one enough!
An excellent calming face moisturiser for dry sensitive skin without being greasy. I use this product day and night, it is also a great for guys too due to the simple packaging. The 125ml tube is pretty good value at $60 Aud, I have re-purchased numerous times and will keep buying this product.
Edit: I have always loved the Calendula cream however for dry skin types, this is more a treatment cream rather than a moisturiser - more a luxury than a necessity. Taking off one lippie.
This is a great, basic moisturizer. It doesn't break me out and leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. Best of all, it doesn't leave a shiny look on my face. Perfect for the wintertime. I love it!!
