This broke me out terribly. I woke up with tiny bumps and super red skin all over my face. I normally don't react to products and don't break out hardly at all, so this was a surprise. I thought about what new products I had tried out and this product was definitely the culprit.

I had a little deluxe sample of this from Sephora, I didn't even use that much but after one application, I knew I'd never buy/use this again. I am wondering what ingredient did this, so that I can stay away from it in the future.

I got this in a travel size as a gift and was so stoked to try it. I kept it around for a while as I used up other moisturizers, but it was tightly closed with a protective seal on the top. So when I opened it up finally I was surprised to find that it smelled rotten (plastic-y mixed with awful granny perfume) and also that the texture felt weird, like it was separated (it goes on with a watery feeling and then quickly turns balmy and thick). However - after reading reviews I realized THIS IS HOW TJE PRODUCT IS! Sad that my first impression of the product is that it was rotten!

I purchased this hoping it'll be more moisturizing than my clinique dramatically different gel. It worked well. It goes on as a paste feeling then turning into a watery form before being quickly absorbed into my skin. For winter season in Canada, I found that it wasn't moisturizing enough. My skin was still feeling a bit tight after using this.

It has a faint smell. It didn't break me out after using 2 jars of this product.
I'd purchase it again for summer/fall season.

I got a deluxe sample of this during the VIB 20% off sale. The gel cream texture feels nice on the skin when applied. HOWEVER, later it balls up all around my nose area and clogs my pores. Not only that, it doesn't even moisturize my skin! It made my skin feel even more dry!! I can see blackheads coming out...like they are trying to escape from the moisturizer lol. So gross, i know. >_<"

This is going into the trash.

reference: I have hyper-senstive, acne prone skin.

I have combination skin and this is perfect for my skin. I apply it religiously day and night after washing my face. It's my HG MOISTURIZER

I find that this moisturizer is enough to tame the dry skin I get in the winter, but not cause my oily skin to get worse. I only use it at night, unless I need it as a spot treatment for dry skin in the morning. I like the packaging and price point is good. I think I've been through 4-6 jars in the past few years.

Hope in a jar may not smell to good but I like how it moisterizes my skin. Its not that refreshing as others but it does moisterise.
