I love this moisturizer. Doesnt irritate my sensitive acne prone skin. It doesnt get enough credit for being such a great bland moisturizer. Maybe because its not at Sephora anymore? I bought three bottles when i heard they were discontinuing it.

I bought this since Boscia didn't have any nighttime moisturizers for acne/oily skin. The ingredients didn't look too bad (I mean, I wish it didn't have any silicones in it, but at least it doesn't contain parabens) and the vanilla scent sounded interesting.
This cream is actually pretty nice in texture. It's a little thick, but still manages to sink in quickly without leaving any feeling of greasiness or excessive residue. It feels moisturizing and pleasant on my skin, though it might not be moisturizing enough for those who have dry skin. It does feel like it offers a little bit of protection against the dry and cold air. I always apply a light layer of hyaluronic acid before using this product, though. This contains a small amount of vanilla extract instead of fragrance, so it adds a light natural vanilla scent that fades relatively quickly. Not bad, though not as delicious as I'd hoped it would be.
The packaging isn't too bad, but I don't care for the bright orange color on the label. The teen theme/gimmick can feel a little cheesy for people who are past those years, but I can definitely see why they are marketed that way.
The full price ($20 USD for 4 fl oz) isn't as bad as some, but it's still a bit pricey when you consider that the main market for these are supposed to be teens. I would recommend looking around the Internet for a sale before buying at full price -- this skincare company seems to be sold at quite a few places. (TessSkin.com is selling it for $14 at the moment.)
