This cream has just arrived in the UK. Am I impressed? No. It is an average moisturiser with no SPF whatsoever. Nice smell and consistency (gel like, very fresh, not too watery). I did not notice any improvement in the radiance of my skin. The lack of SPF means I use it mainly at night with ANR. I prefer Day Wear, my HG cream. Nutritious is not bad, just nothing special.
What I like about EL is that they have recently launched products in the range of £30/35 instead of the crazy and overpriced creams they have launched in the previous years (total hype and unjustified price tags).
Would I recommend this cream? No. Get Day Wear, it is much better. Such a shame they pack it in a jar and not in a tube.
++ Edit: I returned the product as it did not do anything for me. Daywear is sooooo much better. it was originally advertised for Asian skins, Now, magicaly, it is suitable for everyone! call it marketing rubbish??

Like the previous reviewer, this is for the Nutritious Moisture-Gel Creme (AM use) which is targeted for Asian skin in their 20s. The gel-creme is a lovely texture that absorbs easily, leaving a dewy finish. Pleasant scent too. Some of the ingredients listed on the box: Glycerin, jojoba seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, avocado oil, rice bran extract, melon fruit extract, olive fruit extract, pomegranate fruit juice, caffeine - which is why I guess they market the Nutritious line here as a skin energizer (healthy, awake, alive).
My skin does feel soft and smooth but I'm not sure about radiant, havent received any comments on that! My skin is comfortable wearing this however it's not moisturizing enough for the drier areas of my face (cheeks, sides of my nose). RM165 for 50ml (roughly USD49.50), which is cheaper than what you can get from Chanel (which has also released a new line Beaute Initiale for women in their 20s).
BTW, this product has no SPF and I don't understand why they can't throw in a plastic spatula for their jar products, unlike Chanel or Guerlain. That being said, I would repurchase this.

I'm from Singapore, and I'm unable to find Bio-Protein Moisture Complex from the Nutritious range on shelves. However, I'm using the Nutritious Moisture-Gel Creme (AM use), so I think posting a review here won't hurt.
I'm using the Nutritious Moisture Gel-Creme as part of my overall Nutritious skincare regime, which starts with the Nutritious 2-in-1 foam, the Vita-Mineral Energy Lotion (which I have reviewed), the Vital-Mineral Energy Essence, followe by the Moisture Gel-Creme.
Those with oilier skins may find using the Essence is enough in terms of hydrating properties. I have combination skin. The Moisture Gel-Creme has a very light, souffle like texture, and goes on superbly creamily and smoothly. Its fruity scent is heavenly. Interesting note: I use this at night, as somehow, I find it extremely rich and it may be too heavy for daytime use in tropical humidity. Anyway, the product does not have an SPF, so I'm more comfortable using it for night too. The Nutritious Moisture Gel-Creme does an excellent job in moisturising my skin, which will be very dry if left untreated as I sit near the office air-conditioning which is normally at full-blast. Any bits of flakes I have are whisked off the morning after I use the Gel-Creme on my face. Plus it's non-acnegic, so I don't have a problem with breakouts.
Overall, I'm satisfied. It does the job of a basic moisturiser, so it's a little on the expensive side. Don't expect miracles, like healthy, awake, glowing skin. Just makes skin soft and smoother, but I suspect if you stop using this, skin condition will degenerate again, which means it's not really causing 'improvement', is it?

I got sucked in cos they said its packed with anti oxidants, great for asian skin, and the red packaging.
It was everything i hoped for- i used it very lightly as i have combination skin but my cheeks glowed and it was so much clearer just after 5 days.
A bit scared to used on my T zone in case i break out.... so i've avoided that area, but my skin feels moisturised without feeling oily like the Dramatically different cream from Clinique! and without feeling like "did i put my moisturiser on?" like Shiseido's The Skincare moisturiser.
Great investment, lasts ages as the jar is quite substantial. The cleanser is a 2 in 1 cleanser and mask. And that is FABULOUS - takes off makeup, clears up spots, but made my cheeks feel bit tight...offset by the moisturiser of course. But used in conjunction = yummy clearer, HEALTHIER skin.

It made my skin red and itchy. It took me several days to clear up my skin. Most of EL products are too harsh for me. This was not an exception.

This is definitely my HG facial moisturizer! I got a tiny little bottle of it at an in-person MU swap party and I was instantly hooked. I have real problems with dry skin on the edges on my T-zone and on my eyelids, and this is the ONLY moisturizer I've found that manifests a *visual* difference in my skin. It really firms and plumps my skin - I honestly believe it actually lessens the appearance of wrinkles the way 99% of moisturizers claim to do (but most don't at all, in my experience). It also has a very light scent that I find quite pleasant. I LOVE this stuff and would definitely buy it again! It's quite pricey, but you can sometimes find new bottles on eBay for around 1/2 price. And a tiny bit goes a long way, so a bottle lasts forever. Worth every penny!

I must agree that this is an awesome moisturizer. I don't use Lauder products often, but I did purchase this when it first came out, I think I was still in high school (what was I doing - buying a $45 moisturizer anyhow?) but I don't remember me being "wowed" by it. I just recently had a horrible experience with a skincare line that left me with a bad allergic reaction. I needed to purchase a new moisturizer (since I promptly tossed everything in garbage) but I needed to stay under $50 (wasn't payday just yet!). My skin was so dry and itchy, I really needed some heavy duty stuff and I remembered EL's Nutritious. I purchased it, and within 3 days, I saw a noticeable difference. I wasn't even looking for something to clarify and tone my skin, just something to moisturize to take away all the dry patches on my face from that other skincare line! Amazing, it's only been 5 days (using it day and night) and my skin is healed, clarified and toned. I'm definitely using this baby up.

This is one of the very few moisturizers to actually work on my extremely dry skin. It makes flaky, dry skin moisturized and smooth. It moisturizes without being greasy, but it might be too much for people with oily skin. My only complaint is the price.

Nice cream. It provides just enough moisture. Good for a night moisturizer and alternate w/ another during the day.

I use this as a night creme, i have combo/oily skin, and this stuff is awesome. It makes your skin really soft, and it's PACKED w/ nutrients, the texture is a creme but it's not thick and greasy, it's so light and i don't mind the smell either. The packaging comes in a white jar.I think i found my staple night cream! UPDATE: Wow i'm really impressed, I've been using this for a couple of months now and my skin feels so FIRM! and smooth, looks radiant I'm really really enjoying this stuff! this is definitely gonna be a staple of mine
