**Just bought the last jar of this via Wendy at MUAC customer service. Sorry, ladies! The product has been discontinued, unfortunately. They are now offering a new similar item called BellEvolve Total Collagen Care.**
Just got a sample of this last month and used it last night for the first time. With my highly-sensitive, rosacea, acne-prone,dry skin I'm usually scared to use any kinds of oils, but I've been so painfully dry and flaky lately that desperation led me to this product. Woke up this morning to find that my skin was moisturized and flake-free without breakouts or redness! That never happens. I just went on MUAC's site to purchase a full sized jar, but this product seems to have disappeared...

I love this cream. I got a sample first and I loved it enough to buy the full size. I have pretty sensitive skin and I can even use this cream around my eyes and that is saying a lot about it. The texture is almost like a gel/cream it absorbs quickly but moisturzes really well. I will definitely buy this again and MUAC frequently has promo codes, so sign up for their emails.

I just ordered the full size of this after using a sample of it for a few days. I LOVE this cream. I have the most sensitive, dry, blotchy, peely, rosacean, pale skin and this causes no breakouts and soothes my delicate skin. It absorbs quickly and isn't greasy. This product works much better for me than the MUAC rosacea cream (see separate review). The packaging is bad news - jar packaging means the product isn't stable and degrades quickly, and it's not hygienic to dip your fingers into it everyday. An air-free pump would be better. The design/branding is also pretty cheap-looking and dated and doesn't reflect the fabulous product inside! But for the cost (around $32 usd with discount, free shipping), I highly recommend and will continue to repurchase.

I got a sample of this for $4 and I've only tried it 3 times, but I can tell that this isn't for me.
I like that it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave my skin looking greasy. However, I can't use this anywhere near my eyes or it burns like crazy. And the rest of my skin feels a bit irritated, there's a stinging sensation that makes this product unbearable for me.
Obviously, I can't comment on the long-term benefits of using this product, but if you're just looking for a good basic moisturizer, I think there are better (and cheaper) options out there. Cetaphil moisturizing lotion feels pretty much the same as this to me, minus the irritation. And it costs a lot less than the full-size EFA cream ($37).
I'd recommend ordering the sample first to see if you experience the same sensitivity.

Like the previous reviewer, I started off with a sample. I loved it so much that I got a full size jar when MUAC has some promo codes floating around. A little background about my skin...dry, sensitive, acne rosacea, and SD...in other words, a mess, lol! I usually used LRP toleriane cream or the riche cream with my avage at night. I have tried using various oils (rosehip, raspberry, emu, jojoba) and they nevered worked for me.
I like the EFA cream because it doesn't have a scent and it is nice and rich and easy to spread. My skin didn't have any adverse reaction to it and no breakouts. I use this cream to diluate my avage at night or in combination with MUAC argan oil. It has been a few months and still no issue. Quite a feat for this freaky skin of mine...

I bought a sample of this and have used it a couple of times after my MUAC peels. It makes my skin super soft. I'll update later after I've used it more often. I'd buy it again I think, but it's $35 for a 1.5 oz jar... a bit pricey I think, but we'll see.
Update 6/10/10: I really like this cream. I'm not sure if it's an everyday cream during the summer (it's all oils/moisture and summer can be very shiney!), but it's definitely an "after peel" cream and an EXCELLENT choice for dry skin. The next time they have a sale I'm going to buy the full size. It leaves my skin really soft & smooth and doesn't cause any acne issues!
6/25/10 I just rec'd the full size jar. I love this cream and I do find myself using it every day after my niacinamide toner & under my moisturizer. Highly recommended!!!
