I am a huge fan of Estee Lauder moisturizers. I have been oily by whole life, but upon turning 40 I turned dry. I tried a few of the Estee moisturizers with no such success. I started to switch to different brands, when I got this as a free sample with purchase. I fell in love with this product. It is light but gives my skin moisture. My face drinks this up. The only problem is the container. I apply my makeup using clean hands, but would prefer this product in a pump.

I kind of discovered this by fluke - I went to the counter to buy the Estée Lauder CC cream (read a review and needed to give it a go) and this being my first departure from Clarins' tinted moisturiser in 20 years, after chatting to the SA realised that I'd need to use a separate moisturiser; to which she gave me a sample of this potion of goodness and wonder.

The results were instant and after three days I was hooked and desperate to get a full sized pot.

I've never been a fan of Lauder products and before the CC cream had none in my bathroom cabinet; usually over-scented and over-priced I've always found them to be over-hyped.

This moisturiser is scented but not overly so - in fact, I like how it smells. But what I love is how this makes my skin (and therefore me) feel.

I use this in the morning after serums etc using an applicator stick and apply a small amount warming on fingers before patting onto the skin etc...

I'm 41 and despite having what some may describe as a thorough routine, have never actually used an "anti-aging" moisturiser - from day one of using this I wondered why I didn't get onto this bandwagon ages ago.

A month on I'm seeing a noticeable difference - my skin feels great; comfortable and super soft. There is a definite difference in its general look and appearance - it is clear and fresh looking and best of all, my fine lines are much less pronounced than before. ... And all this during the excesses of the festive season.

Let me start by explaining that I have mature, combination and sensitive skin. For my combination, I have an nose that get shiny quickly but also have a tendency to get dry patches in my chin area.

Lately my tried and true Neutrogena healthy skin moisturizer hasn't been cutting it. So I've been off to find some products to perk up the mature skin and get rid of those dry patches.

This Global Anti Aging cream is an all around cream that can be used at night and also under primer and foundation. I find that not only does it give the moisture my skin needs but also calms down any sensitive red areas. Additionally, it works well with my primer and foundation. Thank goodness - no pilling. There's nothing worse than finding a great moisturizer to find out it causes everything you put over it to pill. Overall this is a great base that keeps moisture in all day.

I tried this first at my local EL counter and it was deep winter outside. I had horrible painful excema under my eyes and was pretty depressed about my appearance.
The first thing i noticed about it was how luxurious and thick and silky it felt under my eyes. It felt lovely. If nothing else, it will moisturise i thought. It did and it banished my excema and fine lines. I am delighted. So far ive been buying samples off ebay rather than a full jar as i heard that the ingredients lose their anti ageing properties once open for a while. Its not very sanitary to keep dipping your fingers into the jar but i always clean my hands or use a cotton bud.
Recently i have been using one layer of EL then a layer of Hydraluron by Indeed labs then another layer of EL under my eyes and it has worked miracles! Every other eye cream has ended up irritating my sensitive under eye area except this.
I just wish i could work on the dark circles now!

Did nothing for my skin. Made it more dehydrated than the much cheaper cream I use to use. So when I went back to my old cheap cream my skin was moisturised again and with less wrinkles.

I'm using my second 1.7oz jar at the moment and will probably repurchase.

I like that the creme moisturizes my dry skin during the winters and doesn't cause me to breakout. It either treats or blurs fine lines, since it erases the look of fine lines on my forehead while I'm using it. When I stopped using my 1st jar, I realized that the lines were coming back. I moved on to another moisturizer (also by Estee Lauder), but I found that the effects of this cream is best.

The product has a lot of fragrance, which I don't mind but also know that it may not be a good thing to have on skincare. Also, the jar packaging is inconvenient. I've to use a q-tip or a spatula to get the creme out, something I learned after using the 1st jar.

I got the sample with the holiday set. Overall, a decent moisturizer, but definitely not my favorite. It is a very thick cream, and I do not see it working well as a daytime moisturizer.

Pros:
Goes on smoothly and absorbs fairly quickly.
Makes the skin very soft and smooth.
A little goes a long way.

Cons:
This comes in a jar and I prefer packaging with a pump.
I apply it at night, and while it feels great at first, by the morning, my nose is a grease slick (I have combination skin and am very oily on my nose and forehead).
It is too pricey for what it is.

Might work well for those with dry skin, but definitely not the best for combination/oily skin.

Got a sample of this and have been using it for about 3 weeks now, so time for a review.
This cream feels thick and rich in texture. But it's surprisingly light on the face. It absorbed very quickly. Did not break me out, clog my pores or cause any irritation. It left my skin feeling soft and moderately hydrated.
It has down sides though. First of all, it's scented. I absolutely despise scented facial products. The packaging is a jar, which isn't good for hygiene. And the price is really expensive.
Overall, I'd give this a 3.5. It's a nice moisturizer, but I've used better ones that were way cheaper.

Got a pretty generous sample when purchesing ANR.

I was not in the market for a moisurizer but figured, in spirit with the Korean skin care trend of piling on layer after layer of product, to sandwich this between the ANR and Skin Food I've become so dependant on.

Normally I HATE scent of any kind but will tolerate it if the product works. This stuff is scented but is pretty light IMO and pleasant. You don't smell it once it has soaked in, a major plus for me as there is nothing I hate more than catching whiffs of my face all day.

I'd take a generous dollop and pat it all over my face. Right off the bat it'd soak in, leaving skin plump and glowy, and was very luxurious to apply. Can't speak to fine lines, but it did seem to firm temporarily. After using it for a month, I have to admit I was pretty impressed.

Fast forward to checking the price online. Fifty bucks for an ounce? Now, I'll pay a lot of money for something that works for me (ANR), but this stuff is not worth that. I'll stick with Skin Food.

(Caveat: I was not impress with ANR at first. I got a sample, used it till it was gone, and thought I was unimpressed. After discontinuing use, I noticed a difference and went and got a full size. If this is the case with this stuff, I will update.)

I was given a couple of samples of this product to try. Well, to start with I have to say this: no skin care cream can make your wrinkles go away or "lift" your skin. Other, more heavy-duty invasive procedures can make a difference, but creams can't. If some fine lines appear to disappear, it's because (a) they were caused by dehydration or (b) they are optically blurred so you can't see them as easily. That's it.
Now, for this cream. It's nice enough, and there are some good ingredients in it that can be good for skin (but not get rid of lines). It's quite heavy on silicones, which explains the silky feel. There is fragrance, which isn't too bad but I prefer my creams without. It comes in a jar - why? Tube packaging is so much better both for any active ingredients and for hygiene. On my combo skin this isn't super emollient, but it is adequate. No SPF means this is for night-use only, otherwise you have to layer on sunscreen afterwards.
Now, I can absolutely believe that this cream can make people's skin look better temporarily (that is, if it suits you). So can any well-made skin care product. The fact that you notice the difference when you stop using it, tells you the effect is only temporary.
I've used this cream for a couple of weeks and it's fine - but honestly compared to my regular moisturiser (Eucerin) the feel of it is perhaps more luxurious but effectiveness is the same. There is simply no need to pay this much for a cream, although if you want to sure it's nice enough. Just don't believe the BS about the "IntuiGen technology"... It actually makes me quite angry that the companies apparently believe women are so incredibly stupid that some of us might believe it. (EL is not the only culprit mind you, French brands are even worse!)
Yeah I realise this is a long review - but the last word's got to be this: daily use of effective sunscreen is the best anti-ageing product out there! That, with gentle cleansing, exfoliation and moisturising and you're pretty much set unless you need special treatments e.g. for melisma or rosacea.
