Oh man, I LOVE this stuff. I'm only 22, so I'm in the stage of wanting to take care of my skin, but not quite into full-blown anti-aging yet. I got a free sample of this and was very hesitant at first, since I've been battling stress-related acne breakouts for the past year and have only recently begun to see the light at the end of the tunnel (knock on wood). However, I've been through a number of different creams while trying to figure out what to do with my skin, and so decided that it wouldn't hurt to give this one a try. Thank goodness I did. While this looks like it would be a very rich cream, it's actually quite light--it feels lovely on the skin and absorbs very quickly. Thanks to that acne, I've also been treated to dry, flakey skin from my acne treatments, and this instantly helped my skin feel moisturized and, most importantly, kept that feeling throughout the entire day. Estee Lauder touts that this contains nutrients that will help keep skin healthy and fresh-looking, and I have to say that whatever they did, it definitely is working on my skin. My face looks healthier and brighter than it has in months, the dry spots are gone, my makeup goes on smoothly over it, and, most importantly, it hasn't broken me out. I use this every morning and evening, and definitely plan on repurchasing.
As with all Estee Lauder products, this is beautifully packaged. It feels like it should be a lot more expensive than it is ($38 isn't cheap, but for a luxury skin product, it seriously is not that bad). I don't love that it's in a pot, so I always make sure to wash my hands before I use it, which hopefully minimizes the germ transfer a little. And again, it's not cheap, but a) for a luxury brand (even for Lauder), it's not THAT expensive, and b) if you're going to invest, your skin is the place to do it. I highly, highly recommend this.

Pros: smooth texture, not too heavy or light; heavenly scent; antioxidants; hydrating without being greasy; works as a nice makeup base.
Cons: jar packaging (as with all EL creams)

Nice light cream texture (it's for all skin types), pleasant scent. Leaves skin looking really dewy but since this is something you put on before going to bed it's a non-issue. Works great as a basic night moisturizer. While my skin was still moisturized in the morning, I didn't see any noticeable difference in terms of radiance which was what the product promised. Perhaps it's because I only used it with the day gel-creme instead of the entire line. Love that it's non-acnegenic, never having to worry it might cause breakouts.
For RM175, it's cheaper than the other departmental store brands (e.g. Dior, Lancome, Chanel etc) and I would repurchase this.
