It is a good moisturizer, not too heavy, not scented, that does it job but for that price, I would expected it to have a bit more of a wow factor.

I finally got my hands on this brand, after wanting to try it for so long. I love skincare, and since I have such problematic skin, I'm willing to try anything! I have sensitive, acne prone, combination skin, with more concerns with acne and aging now. Everything as far as moisturizers go either broke me out, or made me too greasy. I can usually try something new and in a few days figure out if its going to be a regular staple.
This cream is in a large red jar with a little spatula. (I'm not too crazy about the dipping) You only need a pea sized amount to rub in your fingers then onto your face in upward motions. It sinks in pretty fast, and I have not broken out with it, and I feel my skin looks better. To me, more clear, and more balanced. I use less foundation, and it feels less oily throughout the day. I like it overall, but I wish it didn't cost so much. Although the jar will last a long time. So far, I really like the brand, and I will probably purchase it when it runs out.

This is a great face cream for all skin types. For years I've been hunting for the right daily moisturiser for my oily skin. I've tried everything from drugstore brands like Biore to more expensive ones like Clinique's gel moisturiser (which was great at oil control but broke me out). Then I discovered this!
I initially tried one of the other creams that was recommended by the lady at the counter (the derm whitening one I think) but found that quite thick and heavy. Then I tried this in a sample size that came with a travel kit and I was so impressed that I bought the full size.
It comes in a lovely, study jar and also comes with a little spatula to maintain the hygiene of the product. The cream is thick enough to hold its shape but runny enough to be easily applied to the skin. A pea sized scoop is enough to cover my face. I rub the product between the fingers of both hands for a few seconds then pat it on. Once most of it is absorbed, i rub it in for good measure.
After three or so months of using this, I have found that it keeps my skin supple and moisturised but also controls the oil production. I am a big believer in moisturising oily skin rather than using products that dries it out and makes it produce more oil. I only use this in the morning - I use the SKII Skin refining treatment at night. My current morming skin routine is to cleanse (I use any old foaming cleanser), use the Facial Treatment Essence, the Cellumination Ex lotion then follow with the Skin Signature.
One lippy off for expense (although I bought it at a much more rentable price on sasa.com). Will repurchase once I run out.

I love this cream!! I've only been using it for a week and see the benefits of it already. It moisturizes nicely without being too heavy. It just makes my skin glow and feel super soft. I can't use most of the products that are out there, as I have very sensitive skin and alot of products make me look like I've had a chemical burn on my face, but not this moisturizer! The price is not too bad, because at 2.7 ounces, its larger than most and will last me quite awhile. I was using Guerlain's Aqua line prior to this and that only came in a 1 ounce jar and it was annoying having to repurchase every few months.
The only thing I don't like is the packaging. Like other reviewers, I wish it would come in a more sanitary pump type packaging. And although this is supposed to be high end, it didn't come with instructions and information! Not that I need any instructions, but every moisturizer I have ever purchased came with those little paper inserts that tell you about the product as well as how to use it.

amazing! I will stick to this cream forever

I bought this cream a bit over 1 year ago. I bought it coz I read some good reviews on it and I love FTE, so i believed this cream must also be good.
I bought the 80g jar and it was around US$130 @ sasa. The jar is huge and up til now my jar is still 2/3 full.
At first, I didnt really like it, as I felt like it took quite a long time to absorb into my skin, and it gave my skin that slight tacky feeling. after 1 month of trying this product, I didn't fall in love with it, so I chucked it in the fridge and forgot about it.
Then, at the start of this year, I bought a few other SKII skincare products and heard that if you wanted to get the full effects of a product, you should also use other products of the same line. So I switched all skincare to SKII and so too the long-forgotten skin signature cream. And this time I love the cream.
I've learnt that my previous way of applying the cream was wrong. The correct way of applying this, and also with any other cream/heavy cream products, is to take a moderate amount, rub between your palms to warm it up, then pat on your cheeks first, then forehead and chin, and woteva's left, on your nose. Then lightly massage your face for 30sec to 1 min. With this application method, I find the cream is absorbed beta into my skin, and no longer gives me that tacky feeling it used to. My skin is super smooth after a few minutes of applying this product. This cream does a great job in hydrating your skin without giving any unpleasant oiliness. I am not sure of its anti-aging properties as I dun have wrinkles yet on my face.
I have been following the SKII regime religiously in the past month or so, and I am loving my skin atm. I dun have much acne going on my face, but my skin has always been a bit dull due to not drinking enough water and lack of sleep. Since switching all my skincare to SKII, my skin has a beautiful natural glow and is no longer super oily as before. I dun know how much the skin signature cream contributes to this, but in combination of FTE, cellumination serum and skin signature, my skin looks and feels beautiful.
Will i repurchase? I am not sure - 1. this jar will last me ages, so no need to repurchase in the near future; 2. I havent experienced cream of other brands, so I cant justify the effectiveness and the $130 price tag of this; 3. in fact, i just bought the Egyptian Magic Cream (rave on this cream on web!) so I will see if Egyptian magic is beta than this~ :P

I love this cream! It has evened out and smoothened my skin, moisturized dry patches, and helped balance out my oily patches. Previous reviews advised not to use too much of it and I agree! The one day that I slathered on a touch too much, my face turned into an oil slick after 2 - 3 hours. Whats more, I live in Singapore (extremely hot and humid) and work mostly in air-conditioned environments, so my skin tends to go a little haywire from the changes in temperature. This cream has helped to balance out my level of oil production around the T-zone, but I do need to use a loose powder on top of my sunscreen to keep the oil at bay. I can't say that it has helped me to look 10 years younger (as it claims in the advertisement) but it has certainly been doing all the other things it says on the tin. Recommened! A little goes a long way, and although its really pricey, I get mine at the duty free and can save a tidy sum.

I received a 15ml sample of this a few months ago and I've been using it twice a day since then. For me a little product goes a LONG way which I absolutely love.
This melts into my skin like a dream with minimal massaging and leaves my skin firmer, hydrated and softer than ever. I can also use this on under eye area and it doesn't irritate at all.
My husband has commenting since using this in my routine my skin looks amazing and feels baby soft. He has commented on how young I look since using this.
The only thing I dislike is the packaging and having to put my fingers in it, I'd prefer a pump or a squeezable tube for hygiene. That said, I love this stuff so much I'll be buying a full size when I run out of the sample!

I love this product. It is pricey (but comes in a bigger-than-usual 80gram tub), but works well on my dry-normal skin. I got compliments on my skin (firm and clear) when i was using this product continuously for a year (i coupled it with the Facial Treatment Essence from SKII). It is a bit greasy for summer/warm weather in daytime, but can be toned down with some loose powder after sunblock application. I like the texture a lot, soft and silky. It is non-fragranced, a bonus if you can't take scents.

Love this cream, I use it at night since I need to moisturize my skin before bedtime and when I woke up in the morning I feel that my skin is soft, well moisturize and brighter. Absorb easily and somehow lift up my skin. I feel great and wish that it come in tube or pump rather then using the spatula.

I have very dry skin and this product worked for me. I had initially tried a sample size and thought it does its job, hence willing to purchase the full-size. As this product is more on the 'heavy-duty' side for my skin, I use it as a daily night cream. When I wake up in the morning, I can feel that my skin is moisturized and softened. However, be careful to apply the right amount for your skin as I find that sometimes when I apply too generously, my skin is actually not absorbing it and thus leaving a sticky feeling on my skin. Due to the sparing usage, I'm able to stretch a full-size jar up to 4 to 6 months!

This project completely restored my skin... I have combination skin and was trying these glycolic acid products to exfoliate the dead skin (not recommended!) but ended up with peeling oily skin in my t-zone, dry patches all around. This cream completely healed my skin and made it feel like satin after using it for a month. I normally don't believe the hype behind pricey brand name products but SK-II really worked for me! There is a slight drawback.. once I ran out of the cream and used a drugstore alternative for a month... my skin started to revert back to the old texture. Your skin will get very used to the cream. I still haven't found a cheaper alternative (if anyone can recommend please let me know!)

I recently began using SK-II products about two months ago. Although I bought a bunch of the products, I did not end up picking this up product. The SA gave me the moisturizer as a sample size, but I'm not even half way with it! I'm so thankful that she did!
Up to this point, my skin was rather dry, even though I do have combination skin.
My cheeks, after ONE use, are no longer dry. I don't know what else to say, but I'm so happy! I honestly thought that there was no solution to my skin, but SK-II is making me reconsider!
The only "con" I have with this product is the way that it's open and we have to put our fingers in there. Their whitening moisturizer actually dispenses it for you once you turn it, so I wish they had something with this as well!
Once my sample is done, I'm definitely purchasing the full size, despite the price. Although my nearby bloomingdales is having an event next month and will give out "travel" sizes of most of their products!!!

Id be lying if I said that there was no effect on my skin. I actually use this for my _day_ cream, and if you dont overload your skin with it, it works fine and absorbs for day time use (not shiny and greasy on your face).
After 1 week I find my skin to look more dewy, smooth and clear. The price is a little much for me, but its still better than Creme de La Mer, and the effectiveness is better. all in all, Im likely to buy again if the results continue to be as such.

My news years resolution this year was to improve my skin I purchased a range of SKII products and have committed to using them daily for a few months. See my thoughts so far below.
First some background, my skin type is normal to combination, generally it's pretty good. My concerns are constant redness on my cheeks, many visible pores (black heads) on my nose which I have never been able to shift, every few weeks I get some white heads coming through on my forehead and chin area and general skin tone unevenness. In the past I have used all sorts of products most recently Clarins and Algologie but I have been thinking about SKII for some time now and decided it was time to give it a go!
I purchased the following products which I have now been using daily since Jan 1 Facial Treatment Essence, Skin Signature (day) moisturiser, Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, Facial Treatment Gentle Cleaner (tube) and the Facial Cleansing Gel (pot).
I bought the two cleaners as the sales assistant suggested I should use the Gel at night to remove make up and the Gentle cleaner in the morning as it's more gentle (and it smells really nice and rosey). However, I have not been using the tube cleaner recently as I dont like the way it feels on my skin my skin feels to 'squeaky clean' and a bit dry after using it (which is strange as its supposed to be the more gentle of the two). On the other hand I LOVE the Gel cleanser, which does not leave my skin with this feeling, it feels beautiful and silky on my skin so I've been using this day and night.
All other products have been great so far While I still have the same pores on my nose, my skin looked really great during week 2.
Now its week 3 and we've had a few really hot days in a row and I had some pimples come through on my forehead and chin.
Overall, I'm very happy with the range so far but am looking forward to continuing to monitor my skins progress over the next few weeks with the products. It is very expensive and I want to see some serious results if I'm going to purchase again.
I love searching this site for others thoughts and reviews if anyone is interested, I'll continue to post my progress with the range over the next few months!

Surprisingly, this cream doesn't break me out - if anything, it makes my skin perfectly hydrated...no shine, just supple, soft, and bump-free. I switched over from the cellumination cream - while that one gave me awesome radiance, it was too active and made my skin feel raw after four weeks of continuous usage - and I use the Skin Signature cream now together with the cellumination essence. I may not use this regimen consistently due to the high cost, but I would be willing to repurchase it when I can afford to do so!

This is a good all around anti-aging moisturizer. I compare it to Revive's moisturizing renewal cream, even though you can wear SKII day or night. SKII is not as strong as
Revive's moisturizing renewal cream, but seems just as effective by working in different ways. I find that it gives me nice smooth skin & glow. During the day I'm careful not to apply too much in the T- zone areas, and I never seem to appear greasy. This product works as a good night moisturizer.
Since this is a Japanese company, I wrongly assumed this would be more of a gentle moisturizing product and less of anti-aging product. But, I found this was a good quality

I received this as a gift. I am combo skin oily t zone and dry cheeks. This cream is easily absorbed, low fragrance and low irritating. However for the price, over $100 for 50g it doesn't do a thing.
I didn't notice any visible differences in my skin tone it's quite watery in texture and I felt my cheeks needed more moisture after ten mins. It's prob more suited for oilier skin given it doesn't leave sticky residue and fast absorbed.
Packaging very much like oil of lay regenerist. Nothing special at all.Didn't like the fact the jar was open to contamination, I prefer squeeze or pump jars.
Lucky it was a gift and I didn't spend my money on it. I've tried a lll sk2 range and this was a disappointment.

I admit it, I was suckered into purchasing this product after viewing the advertising of Tang Wei (young actress in her 20s) using Skin Signature, promising that users can look up to 4 years younger. Plus, the counter was having a promotion package.
I have combination skin and after giving birth, the lack of sleep as a result of breastfeeding took a toll on my skin. I use Skin Signature in-conjunction with the Gentle Cleanser, Lotion, Facial C, Treatment Essence and Cellumination Essence. One would think that I have overloaded my skin, I agree.
Surprisingly, after using it for more than a week (more than enough time for my skin to react to any abnormalities), my skin GLOWED. I finally was brave enough to go out without foundation, except for concealer around my eye area (no amount of eye product could get rid of the dark circles because I am still living on 3 hours of sleep per day). The result was amazingly good! I used to mix and match skincare items from different brands and always end up chucking them away because I don't see results after usage.
For SGD149 (package price), I find this moisturiser worth every penny I spent! Most importantly, lovely skin with no breakouts!!! Will re-purchase!

(Review not for the melting version)
This is my HG moisturiser. I have combination skin, oily T-zone and dehydrated cheeks. When I spend too much time in dry airconditioned room, i get flaky and eczema after that. This has kept my skin well moisturised and I swear my skin now looks clearer and supple. I absolutley love it! I am into my 2nd tub and will continue to use this. How i wish this comes in a tube instead of a tub, reason I am giving it a 4.
