Straight-up moisture: no treatments, no sunscreen. It seems to have pretty good staying power, a plus in cold/dry weather. Despite the light, fresh almost non-smell, I think this is actually pretty heavily fragranced (although MUCH less so than the Olay I was using previously). This might be an issue for anyone with super-sensitive skin.


A very rich cream, this is not quickly absorbed but rather leaves a light, protective barrier. I can see how this might be too thick/filmy for oilier skins or in humid weather, but for dry skin (esp overnight) I like the richness. During Summer months I'll probably use as an eye cream or only at night.


At $32 for 2 oz, it's a decent value vs other dept store creams. A little goes a long way. Packaging is typical BeneFit--- kitchy rather than elegant. Heavy glass jar is cumbersome.
