This is my ALL TIME FAVOURITE moisturizer in the whole entire world. I used to be a die hard Clinique girl but I've discovered a better, greener, safer, more natural brand...Boscia!
This moisturizer is a gel. Once applied, it instantly cools your skin (think of a nice tingling sensation...from peppermint). This is a great refreshing addition to my morning routine.
I've noticed that since I've paired this moisturizer with the Clear Complexion kit from Boscia, my skin had dramatically improved.
The packaging is kind of stupid. It is in a little plastic "jar", There is a pump, so it dispenses a set amount. I think that it over dispenses (note: I don't mind dishing out tons of money on products, but I like to get my money's worth). I usually will dispense the full amount, and only take half (I leave the rest on the pump for the evening....Don't worry, there's a lid). It's kind of hard to explain unless you've seen how it actually dispenses.
*Handy tip: The stupid dispenser actually comes off, so you can dip your finger in the jar (make sure fingers are clean...Don't want to contaminate!). In order to put the lid back on, the pump has to go back on...
I would recommend this moisturizer! It's great!

I got this as a sample, so I cannot accurately review for packaging or long-term use! I LOVED this hydrating gel! It absorbed quickly, it didn't have any kind of chemical scent & it left my skin feeling amazing.
I doubt I will ever purchase the full size because: 1 - it is a little pricey for me, 2 - the ingredients list has a LOT of dimithecone (silicones) in it, and I try to avoid using dimithicones in my skin care....and 3 - I already LOOOVVEE my herbal ItWorks skincare products.

This moisturizer had an odd texture and just sat on my skin. Didn't absorb and left a weird grey tint.

This is by far the best moisturizer I've ever used. I tried switching to Clinique's Dramatically Different for a little bit, and it made my skin act up. I have combination skin (with some veeery oily patches) and the gel texture of this is just fantastic. It sinks in quickly and your skin feels the benefits immediately. The only downside is the (very hygienic) packaging -- the opaque black doesn't allow you to see how much is left. However that's very minor, and I'd recommend this product to anybody.

This is the only morning moisturiser that I can use it under my sunscreen without feeling greasy. Easily absorbed and have a nice cooling feel if you apply enough of it. Sometimes when my skin feels oily , I will use this at night instead of my Duchess Marden. On normal nights, is definitely not hydrating enough. One of the nicest gel moisturisers I ever used.

I LOVE this stuff. It gives a nice tingly sensation but at the same time it seems to calm my sensitive skin down.
It's a little different than most moisturizers, It is not greasy at all, not even creamy. Once you put it on it basically disappears but you are left with this refreshing, energizing tingly feeling. I've never used this when on a day when my skin was super dry. I'm not sure it would do the job it I had flakes going on.
I really like how it makes my skin look. I don't wear it everyday, maybe just every 2-3 days or whenever I want to look/feel a little extra good.
It is super expensive and the packaging SUCKS!. It's this weird jar/pump. Once it's gone, I'm going to have a hell of a time cracking this thing open to salvage that last tiny bit of this awesome stuff.
I've been using this stuff in conjunction with Bioelements' Calming Hydration Fluid, another expensive item, but it's been working for me.

For the price, I wouldn't buy this again. But, I LOVE how it gives the face a cooling sensation for a while after it's applied. It works nice with the cleanser, which gives a heating sensation. It moisturised my skin pretty well. Didn't help with oil production, but then nothing really does for me. It's a great product, but I really don't feel it's worth the money.

I've only used this moisturizer for a month and I love the tingy feeling it gives when I applied it.
I've read so many reviews about how you couldn't open the pump before I purchased the product and was a little worried but I still ordered from sephora. When I received it, I just don't understand what people are talking about. The bottle just twist open, so I'm unsure whether it's a new design on the package or not.

This moisturizer is fine. It doesn't give my sensitive skin a huge reaction, does a decent job of moisturizing (not great) and seems to bring down pimple size slightly. But at this price point, I would prefer more striking results. I think this is just too expensive for being an OK product. Would not repurchase.

i normally don't write reviews but i felt that it was necessary for this product. i bought this back in may and i am already out. i use it once a day at night... this is an AMAZING moisturizer, don't get me wrong here. have mixed feelings. for my extremely combination skin (no joke, it is super oily in the t-zone and i have dry, flaky patches everywhere else) this is really balancing. it controls oil but it provides just enough moisturizer. it is lightweight and i never feel greasy while i'm using it. the major con: the PRICE! it is ridiculously expensive. when i spend $38 on a moisturizer i expect it to last me 6 months.... at least... this one only lasted 4. You only get on ounce... i recomend this to people who do not have problem with spending money on this. it is truly amazing but it is too expensive for me, that being said i am a teenager... also you cannot take the pump off the top and scrape anything out.. it might not be, but i feels like there is something down there and you cannot check for your own satisfaction. another point, you don't know you run out until the stuff stops coming out. i was super low and was oblivious about it. it stopped coming out so now i do not have a nighttime moisturizer for tonight. with a tube, it gets flatter, its hard to squeeze out, with an open lid jar, you can see it, with this the outside is completely opaque there is no way you can open it up and look inside. the jar itself, on its own without product in it, is quite heavy. i wouldn't call it travel friendly because the weight. the moisturizer itself probably doesn't even weigh half of the packaging. i realize there is a lot of negativity in this review but i think people should know. in a nutshell, it's amazing, a life-save for me, but it is too expensive and because of that i cannot repurchase it.
