I love this stuff so much I went through 2 tubes of it and I am soo sad because I just went to Kohls today to find that its gone and has been replaced by a new line (also by Grassroots) . This stuff really surprised me being that it was from Kohls- I didn't expect much but it turned out to be better than some of my more expensive high end creams. Makes my skin gorgeous, dewy and a lot firmer. I am so sad that it is gone I hope hope hope I can find it on Amazon or somewhere else. WHY OH WHY DO THEY ALWAYS DISCONTIINUE MY FAVORITE THINGS!!!???!!!?? Ladies if you love something very much stock up on it because these companies have a tendency of discontinuing all the best products!!

I love this stuff! I bought it to use as a night moisturizer but tried it out for day as well. It may be just because it's winter but my t zone didn't get oily or sticky like it does with other moisturizers. It leaves my skin soft with kind of a matte like finish and has not broken me out (most things do). $18 does seem a little pricey for a Kohl's product but when you consider that I only have to buy one instead two seperate moisturizers for day and night it's a bargain. And for those who complain that a jar is not hygenic just dip a q-tip in it instead of your finger.

I wish this were in a squeeze tube like so many of the other lovely Grassroots products, but other than that, the product (I'm using the cream, rather than the lotion) is amazing! The scent is delicious & not only has it NOT broken out my sensitive/blemish-prone skin, I feel like it's cleared it up! I've been getting so many compliments on my skin & my skin is as soft as silk! I use it at night as well as day (even though it has an SPF; I tried While You Were Sleeping, their night cream & didn't like it as well), & when I wake up, my skin is STILL hydrated & silky!

Bought this about 3 months ago at Kohl's after reading the reviews here. I have really dry skin that tends to be on the sensitive side. The cream goes on nicely and really seems to sink into your skin. The problem lies in our dry climate here in CO. Add on a particularly harsh winter so far and my skin is really dry right now, especially on my cheeks. This is a nice cream but if you have really dry skin or live in a dry climate you may need something with more oomph.

first off, they'll steal you with the name :)
this moisterizer is a REAL moisterizer. unlike many moisterizers that give you a pearly shine for like a day and then cease to exist if you stop using them, this product works slowly over time. That means you have to be patient. The antioxidants in it or something must be a the culprit. I moisterize often, and use this under my make-up. I experimented by trying Aveeno and then Grassroots and saw that Grassroot's moisterizer held up way better. After 6-7 hours, this doesn't let your make-up go anywhere. And my foundation goes on like water. I find you do need to pat it if you have greasy skin but in sinks in soon enough. It smells like lemon/citrus which is lovely, but if you get it directly underneath your eyes it will irritate them because its real lemon, not tone-down citrus. If you're patient, this stuff will make your skin unbelievably smooth and pretty. That's how you know something's working, not a chemical quick-fix.
UPDATE: I can't find where to repurchase this, I miss this so much! The best moisturizer! After using like 5 different moisturizers in one week, this is the best and made my skin beautiful the next day.

I got this moisturizer as a sample the other day at Khol's and usually, I am very particular with lotions but this pleasantly surprised me!
My skin feels so soft but not greasy, which, in itself, is an amazing phenomenon! I have very very oily skin. My cheeks are looking so rosy..maybe because of camphor in it? I've never had a moisturizer that results in soft rosy (in a non-irritated way) cheeks.
I LOVE the subtle smell it has!
The only thing is the SPF... I apply it at night and the SPF is just a waste of added product for me. I wear normal sunscreens during the day at a higher SPF (SPF 30 +) anyway, so I wouldn't wear this during the day as my daily protection.
I will definitely buy again!

This cream is great, I use it every night because it is a little heavy for my oily/acne prone skin in daytime. I slather this on my face and neck and I wake up with soft rosy skin, no breakouts. I think this cream is actually helping heal my skin and scars from breakouts. The smell is yummy. I took off a lippie because of the jar. I wish it was more hygeinic. Anway this will be in my makeup cabinet for a long time coming.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I have been using this for about a month now and I LOVE it. The scent is great in the am and I love how my skin drinks it in. Since using this product I have had no breakouts and the texture and tone of my skin has never been better.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Love, love, love this stuff. I bought the cream for winter and use the lotion in summer. I have been using this product for about 1 year now. My face is glowy and rosy. The smell is fantastic, it has a nice texture and feels amazing on my skin. I use it every day and miss it if I skip a day. This is definitly my HG mosturizer.

I agree with cho_chang's view about the sun screen and essential oil. For years, I used Origin's stuff thinking the essential oil is good for me. After 4-5 years, my skin is soo desensitized that I feel burned and tingled from very normal products, even Origin's cleanser. I shifted to EL's tri-lipic based products to rebuild my barrier and finally my skin returned to normal. During that 4-5 years, there was NO sign of irritation or rash. I finally believe Paula and cho_chang's ideas about essential oils are skin desensitizer. Finally, NO cosmetic company should never put lotions or cream in open jar, twist top containers. Everything should be sealed and have a pump or squeeze-able dispenser. They used jars to save a few cents, which is just stupid. Not to mention it's bad sanitation, I am sure most of you noticed by the 2nd or 3rd months the product gets thicker and harder to spread because it's all dried up.
If you gals want something good with sunscreen, try the good-skin line. The 3 basic care moisturzer all have SPF15 and packed with good antioxidants, no crazy fragrance or oils.

This is a nice moisturizer. I have combo skin in the winter and oilier in summer. I bought this last winter and found it quite satisfactory. It did a good job of keeping me moisturized without causing breakouts. Love the natural ingredients, anti-oxidants and the sunscreen. It is a bit much for my oilier summer skin so I'm trying the Stay In Control Oil Obsorbing Lotion.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This is a nice product! I bought the cream, but probably should have gotten the lotion for my combo skin. But even the cream is lightweight and very effective. The scent is very pleasant--there are no fake fragrances in Grassroots products, just natural essential oils. This had absolutely no adverse affect on my sensitive skin and provided adequate sun protection. I have terrible reactions to cheap sunblocks and fake fragrances. This stuff is nice and fairly inexpensive.

I love this mosturizer, my skin has NEVER looked so good. I've only been using this for a few days and my skin is glowing. It evens out my skin tone and makes me look so glowy all day, never greasy.I dont even need foundation. I pair this with the "feast your eyes" eye treatment and LOVE it.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I am totally impressed with this product (as well as any other grassroots I have tried so far). First of all, I LOVE the scent. Very refreshing, light and citrus-y. Second, its just the right texture for my combo skin, not too heavy or greasy, it sinks right in and my skin feels moisturized all day. Third, I have been using this for a week and my skin has never looked better. Fourth, it has SPF. The one flaw is the packaging. Its just a regular screw top and sometimes too much product comes out. It needs something like one of those pop up caps or the little plastic disc with the hole in the center type thing. *thinks about writing to EL* Other than that, its wonderful. I have been very impressed with the Grassroots line so far. I tried American Beauty skincare and did not like it at all. Good skin was better than AM, but GR is my favorite so far.

I think this would be a good product if you need basic conditioning and sunscreen but don't have any skin issues. My skin a bit too touchy so I've switched to products that do more. I like the smell first thing in the morning. It smelled like oranges to me. I don't like the packaging either...there should be something you can squeeze. It's a particular pain when you get near the end of the lotion because you have to balance this little bottle on its lid. I've noticed that Kohl's sample packaging is better than their real packaging on more than one product. Hope they change this.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I love this stuff. I keep getting it in sample sizes from Kohl's, but I should really just show my support and buy it. The smell, to me, is fresh and clean and outdoorsy. It doesn't break me out (though virtually nothing breaks me out), and it keeps my face moist but not greasy.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Other Eyes: Brown
I bought the lotion form for my combo skin and so far I like it. I'm not crazy about the fragrance, actually. It's kind of a lemon verbena and nice for morning but not my favorite scent and a bit too strong. It hasn't broken me out.
Just a simple moisturizer with SPF 15 and just the texture I want: not too thick.
I do hate the packaging. It's a cute little rectangular bottle with a screw off cap, often making me pour out more than I need to use.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Black
I got a couple of free samples of this with my last two Kohl's purchases, and it's so great... creamy, soft and clearly a rip-off/homage to Origins' Have a Nice Day or Night-A-Mins, but who cares? It smells gorgeous and fruity, it has SPF15, and most importantly, it's been getting me over that weird in-between hump from fall into winter when the weather gets colder and my skin can't decide whether it's dry, normal or combination. The samples are squeeze tubes which is more hygenic than the jar packaging of the full-size product.

Great moisturizer -- my combo, sensitive acne-prone skin enjoys this cream. Originallybought the lotion -- but exchanged it for the cream because the lotion was too lightweight with winter and cold weather coming on. The lotion was very thin and would be great for someone with oily skin. My very sensitive skin has had no problems with this and I normally react to plant extracts in things. Could not use Origins. Also, the smell is great -- definitely would repurchase at such a bargain price ($17) - at Kohl's.
