I am so lucky to have seen this at my local discount store & i have already made it through one bottle moving on to my next one..so i never have bought more than 1 bottle of a face lotion/moisturizer except this one. I love it!
PRICE/AVAILABILITY- like i said I have been so lucky to have found this at my local discount store. I bought mine at Big Lots for only $2 & then it went on a bigger clearance for $1 so needless to say, i grabbed up 2 more bottles for that price, its a crime. I do see this available in some drugstores & Walmart & Target stores. Not sure if they are discontinuing it or what but ill def be sad if they do bc its become harder to find. & unfortunately, ive fallen in love. In stores, ive seen it priced at $4-5 so its def worth the full price to me.
FORMULA/PERFORMANCE- Let me first say that i have normal to dry skin, at moments, its sensitive with occasional eczema breakouts. etc. I dont have extremely sensitive but w/ dry skin sometimes i have to be careful. But this lotion is formulated for normal to combo skin so basically anyone could use this. This claims to give optimal hydration to revitalize & improve skins texture & is infused w/ grape seed to nourish & protect skin. Hypoallergenic & wont clog pores. I find it does all of that! When i started using this, my skin finally felt hyrdrated & felt so soft & smooth. It does not feel greasy or oily at all. This formula is a thin lotion. not too thick. A good consistency to apply & spread so nice. I allow it to soak into the skin for at least 10 mins before applying makeup. I use this lotion morning & night esp in summer. In the coming winter months i may use a thicker face cream at night but this Almay lotion is a great daily lotion. It cleared up my skin meaning no reactions to ingredients & it didnt clog my pores as well as finally leaving a moisture to my skin. It helped with my dry patches & flakes & my eczema soon went away. It wasnt just this but this lotion is great. I find it has a slight grape oil scent but its almost unnoticeable. I personally like it & wish it lingered but no scent at all. This is great for under makeup, Does not affect my makeup at all, if anything it helped my foundaiton apply alot better since clearing up any bad spots. It leaves this slight inner glow to my skin maybe since im use to dull dry liffeless skin, this is great. This lotion quickly became my favorite & i hope i can find some more in my local stores. Great formula. Sets so nice!
PACKAGING- i like the simple packaging. This Moisturizer comes in a lilac purple plastic bottle with a white pump lid. I love the pump, it dispersed just the right amount of lotion for a use. I sometimes may use a half more. Almay logo & info on front & back in black writing. It keeps your lotion safe & clean. No jars or tubs to stick your fingers into. I love the convienent pump & its a smaller size but you get tons of lotion. My first bottle lasted me almost 3-4 months using it 2x a day. You get 4 fl oz or 118 ml which is a good deal. Its def worth the price. Great simple packaging. Also, i brought this bottle w/ me on vacation in my suitcase since its too much for carry-on but the bottle stayed intact & safe thru all the rough handling.
Overall, this is seriously my favorite facial moisturizer/lotion. i have found 2 others i really enjoy but for some reason, i always think of this lotion. I used up one whole bottle which is surprising since i normally move on sometime while using my lotions but i stayed w/ it the whole time. I do have backups but i decided to use up my other 2 face moisturizers first since they were opened too but im def going to open up my next bottle soon. I also didnt want my face to build a intolerance to it like sometimes my skin does with products. so, I have to find me some more of this stuff, I think this will work good for any skin type since its moisturizing but not overly & wont clog pores. Its hypoallergenic so wont cause any reactions. I LOVE IT!
