I use this product every morning and night around my eyes. My eyes have a tendency to get really dry around the edges (thanks, allergies), but this really combats that completely. The richness isn't an issue at night, but in the morning it can get in the way of makeup. The way I work around this is by washing my face, putting it on around my eyes, and doing the rest of my routine. About fifteen minutes after putting it on, I use the backs of my hands to "dab" the rest off so that I can finish my makeup routine. It keeps my eyelids and under eyes hydrated all day and keeps me from itching them. I've also used this all over my face at night with no reaction, but I woke up oilier than normal, so I don't do that anymore. All-in-all, highly recommended!

I love this stuff - the texture, the quality of it and how light and smooth it is. I use it with a nice light facial sunscreen over top. Great product, plan on using it for the forseeable future.

I'm on my third bottle and I really like this stuff! I've been trying to clean up my beauty routine by using mostly natural products and I have been VERY happy with this company. The customer service was excellent when I had a shipping issue and although I would normally be weary purchasing through an online vendor, I now happily order from CH regularly.
My only complaint is the second jar I got wasn't as filled as the first; however, because the company was so great dealing with my first legitimate shipping problem, I decided not to complain so I'm crossing my fingers. I'm still ordering a 3rd!
The lotion has a radiant quality which I like very much. Excellent for night or under make up (but I like that shine/radiant look versus a matte finish...this could be because I'm normally so dry living in the desert heat) but it sinks in eventually. I'm not sure I agree with others about what it's been doing for fine lines. In fact, I've grown worried that this accentuates them from time to time but I think that may just be because I needed to use an additional moisturizer. This plus organic Rosehip Seed Oil has been fantastic though! In fact, I'm going to order another jar right now :) CH is great. Take a chance!

I'm a CV soap addict but this product has really sealed the deal for me. I am nearly 40 & my skin is super dry with dry, flaky patches around my mouth and nose. I apply this cream to my entire face moring & night in the winter. Only at night in the summer. It is a *bit* greasy but for a dry-skinned person this stuff sinks in very well. The jar is small but will most likey last the entire winter season. Love this product and the icing on the cake is that it's natural : )

Ladies, you can throw away your sleeping masks now!
I've been using sleeping masks from all sorts of brands for times when my skin gets flaky but since I am oily at the same time, I end up with clogged pores and huge acne bumps that stay under the skin for months. Decided to try this mousse out because of the great reviews and no regrets at all! Awfully oily upon application but i woke up to a much softer and yet firmer face the next morning.
Price is great, shipping to Singapore within a week, what more can I ask for? Best. Thing. Ever.

I just finished my first of Im sure will be many jars of this. I love it. My face has never looked better and my dermatologist was impressed. The lack of true actives is probably the best part actally. It's just moisture and it's what my skin needed. Super inexpensive, all natural, and made by hand. I wish I lived near them so I could buy it wihtout shipping!

This is my holy grail face and eye cream now, and all natural as a bonus! I use it morning and evening. It doesn't break me out and actually leaves a glow on my face for the day. Very moisturizing, which I love.

Love, love, love, love this face cream. At first I thought it was a little too oily to use all over my face - particularly because my skin can be quite oily, especially in the summertime. But when I use this at night, I find it actually calms oil production. It feels greasy when I first put it on, but I wake up with soft, clear, matte skin. I've just run out of a far more expensive AHA night cream and I think I'm going to give my wallet a rest and just keep using this. Adore!

LOVE this stuff!!! This is the best facial moisturizer I've ever used and has the simplest ingredient list ever. No harmful chemicals to irritate my skin. It does feel really greasy when you put it on so I only wear it at night. When I wake up in the morning my skin is soft and ever since I started using this no flakiness! I'm 26 so I'm at a point to where my skin is less oily so this helps alot. I don't suspect it would wear well under makeup because it is so greasy, but my skin is so soft from the night that I don't have to use a moisturizer during the day under my makeup. As an eye cream its equally great. Very gentle and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. I only have very faint beginnings of lines around my eyes and I think this cream has worked on them already! I've been using it for 2 months now and one jar lasts me for roughly a month and a half. I use it all over my face though so if you use it just as an eye cream it would last quite a while.
On a side note my dry curly hair was very frizzy and dull one day and this was the only thing I had so I rubbed a little over the frizz and it looked great!
I only wish they would sell a bigger size so I wouldn't have to buy it so often. $6 a jar is a great deal on this all natural and wholesome product.

I've been using Chagrin Valley Whipped Squalane Face and Eye Mousse as a nighttime eye cream all spring and summer, and while it may be a little heavy as a summer product for oilier skins, this product is a keeper for me. (By the way, 'Squalane' is the spelling on the package, not 'Squalene')
I stumbled on this product because my husband likes the Chagrin Valley Shea butter in the winter. Having tried many other nighttime eye creams, most of which are far more expensive than Chagrin Valley Whipped Squalane, I have now thrown almost all the others away and use this one only! Most of the other products I had tried either felt uncomfortable, hurt my eyes, caused puffiness, or actually made fine lines more visible. This softens lines, feels good, doesn't hurt or sting, and doesn't leave any residue or puffing as long as you are careful not to use too much (it is tempting to use too much because it is packaged in a simple twist-cap, wide-top jar.)
The ingredients, as listed on the package are: "Shea Olein, Olive Squalane, Olive Butter, Jojoba, and Lavender essential oil." Don't be put off by the lavender oil. I don't usually like scented products, but this has a very subtle smell that doesn't jump out and is a very soft, subtle, hint of lavender rather than the in-your-face sickly sweet lavender that is all too common. In other words if you are looking for something with a strong lavender scent, this isn't it, but if you are OK with just the slightest touch of scent, this is great. Two thumbs up for a great product at a reasonable price!
