I use this only as a day moisturizer, it is light and to me doesn't have a bad smell.. Nothing short of surgery is going to remove the fine lines and wrinkles of anyone! I'm hopeful to find products to continue to let me have nice skin (which I do have).. The price is comparable to other high end products.. It does a nice job for a day moisturizer and I will buy again..
I actually kinda liked this moisturizer. I found it was light and it had a cucumber scent in it that I found pleasant. I used this during the summer months and ran out in August it was just perfect for summer! I was very happy with my skin because I didn't get any reactions either...oh and for the reviewer who says she got cysts girl as an esthetician myself I can tell you that's not from products that's your diet and your hormones causing you to break out oh and if you have dry skin you body produces oil to try to lubricate its self and depending in the density of the oil your body is producing mixing with bacteria from all those samples you get it's a perfecting breeding ground for acne causing bacteria! Think about it... Overall this product is awesome!
I'm surprised at the low reviews! This product is my HG night cream. I've switched many, many times in hopes to find something cheaper. But this stuff is the only thing that has kept my skin feeling plump and moisturized. I have terrible, problem skin, and without the cream my pores feel larger, my skin is greasier, and my jowls seem less lifted. The tingling/burning sensation is definitely weird, so I understand why sensitive skin users might be scared off. But this lotus youth preserve cream is priced so wonderfully for a Fresh product and really delivers!
I got a sample of this cream and tried it out over the course of one week. I cannot attest to its long term benefits, but I feel comfortable assessing my experience. I like the scent of the lotion- it is very unique. I do not know what to compare it to in terms of smell; it smells very natural. It is also moisturizing without feeling greasy. It made my skin feel soft and supple without irritating it. I think the biggest drawback is the price. I own plenty of high-end face creams already so I cannot truly justify the splurge. Regardless, I was pleased with the result of this face cream.
Meh. Not horrible, but not great either. And I'm glad to read that I'm not going crazy - I felt a slight warming sensation when I applied this cream. It absorbs quickly and doesn't seem to bother my skin, and when I wake up my skin looks good but nothing extraordinary, just moisturized, which I can say about pretty much every night cream I use on a regular basis. I do like the cucumber scent but this cream is not worth its pricetag.
Ugh. While this product has a nice, light consistency and sinks in well, I found that it did break me out. And when I say that, I don't just mean small clogged pores. This time, I got actual cysts, the big, painful bumps that throb and take days to heal.
Hydration-wise, I didn't notice anything special from this product.
As for the burning sensation others have mentioned, I wouldn't say I felt anything terribly uncomfortable, but I did feel a slight warming.
I need to start by saying that I have extremely sensitive skin, so that may be why this cream didn't work for me. I've used it twice now and both times my skin has started burning after use; the first day the burning started later in the day but today it began as soon as I applied the cream. I was wondering why my skin was irritating me last night...now I know. As others have said, it's not particularly moisturizing, either, so not suited for those of us with dry skin.
Definitely not worth the money, as a moisturizer it was at most okay. I would say if you have anything but close to perfect skin already you can find something better. It doesn't really hydrate that well, and it can make oily skin worse. The only reason I would say someone could benefit from buying this is if the ant-aging aspects work better than all of the products that are more cost-effective, which I have no way of knowing. However, I have a strong feeling that there's something better, with more benefits.
i really wanted to like this because i just love the texture (a very light & fluffy cream), ingredients are natural, it absorbs fast, doesn't leave my face looking oily and smells like fresh cucumbers! unfortunately it STUNG upon application. the stinging dissipated after several minutes but face lotions/creams should not sting imo, but should rather have soothing effects. i have very oily, tough skin and i don't use retinol anymore so there's no reason for this to have stung so badly. so im giving it 3 stars, because for the most part, it has more good things than bad. sadly it didnt work for me so returned.
Lotus Youth Preserve cream is new for Fresh.I have used Fresh skin care for a while now, I started when the line first came out, and I am in love! the reviews here on MUA are doing OK, though many do not have the same skin types and it may appear as if this moisturizer isn't that good, rest assured that if you have purchased this or are planning to, it is one of the best ones for oily, normal and slightly dry skin, this may not be enough for those looking for a heavier and more intense moisturizer.It has ingredients in it that make it more on the natural side but still competes against those famous lines like Lancome, Dior and other high end lines such a La Mer. Its very affordable as well, $ 42 for a 1.7oz sold at Sephora and Fresh.com
