PROS: Such a beautiful whipped texture that feels great going on. The active ingredient seems to really be helping my wrinkles look less deep. Natural ingredients. Doesn't bother my very sensitive skin too much.
CONS: Comes in a jar, but I just make sure I have clean hands when I apply. It has a smell that is from the Plumeria blossom. When I saw that in the reviews, I thought I would hate the product. The scent is somehow quite tolerable (and perhaps even enjoyable). That really surprised me because I normally hate floral scents, even in perfume. But it's mild and soft and fades very fast. Although, it does sometimes bother my sensitive skin a bit, and I think it may be the fragrance. It also may be the witch hazel in the product..
ALTERNATES: This brand has a very moisturizing and gentle night cream, and Paul's Choice Barrier Repair (with retinol) is very moisturizing but leaves no film on my skin. I personally love Replenix Antioxidant Moisturizer SPF 50 (in silver tube) for great moisture and spf protection that doesn't bother my sensitive skin.
PURCHASING TIPS: I can get this cheaper through places like Vitacost.

I got a sample of this and was able to stretch a packet to about 3 uses. I can't say that I like it enough to buy a full size. It's a decent enough moisturizer, it absorbs quickly, smells great, doesn't seem to make me break out. But it's not good enough for extremely dry patches. I've had better, I've had worse. The search for the perfect one continues!

Picked this up as my skin was really acting up and needed some extra moisture, nice product. Easy to apply makeup on top w/no issues. Not sure if it will be enough for winter, will probably have to add to it but a nice product overall. Adding, just discovered this lotion dries to a matte finish, even when applied over oil. It makes application of makeup so much nicer.

This cream while feels and smells nice has made my milia problem worse (I am guessing it's the dimethicone which is silicone derivative), and didn't moisturize enough. Lucky for me, I purchased it at vitacost and only paid 17USD instead of 39.99CAD. I am using it as a hand lotion instead just to use it up.
It didn't cause milia. But after finishing the tub, I am going back to Aubrey Organics Rosehip Cream, which is cheaper and more natural.

I am usually an avid Jurlique skin care fanatic, however after deciding to find a cheaper alternative to Jurlique, I tried out this moisturizer.
I've been using it for about 2 months and I'm actually very pleased with it. I have normal skin, sometimes a little dry in the winter, with really no issues (a random hormonal breakout once in a blue moon). This moisturizer gives me a nice glow and it feels really nice going on. I know people have complained on the scent, but I love the herbal smell. It's so comforting to me. It also goes on quite nicely with make up!
After using it everyday, I feel like the texture of my skin has improved. I will definitely repurchase this. The price is nice, the ingredients are minimal and organic.

I did not care for this product. I didn't have a problem with the scent, although I would have preferred it was unscented. I couldn't stand the way it made my face feel. It felt smooth and silky going on, but once dry my face felt like I had used soap on it and forgot to rinse it off. It was tight, but without any visible tightening effects. I found myself constantly spraying evian mist over my face to loosen it up. So I stopped using this for my face, and finished it up using it as a hand cream.I will not be repurchaing. I gave it a 3 lippie for the natural ingrediants and the reasonable cost.

I completely agree w/the previous reviewer-this stuff stinks! It smells like a cheap candle. To be fair, I have not even tried it on my face (got a sample). Did try it on my hand though & the smell lingers. I will get around to trying it, despite fears of a headache. Will post an update if the cream is worth tolerating the awful smell. UPDATE: Well, I was wrong about this & am bumping it up to 4 lippies. It may even be a 5...will have to use it for awhile longer to see. The smell actually did not bother me one bit & I couldn't smell it after I put it on. Also, I thought this would not be moisturizing enough as it sinks right in & gives a matte feel. However, it is enough moisture & my skin is looking much brighter and clearer. I'm looking forward to trying more of their line & am excited w/the ingredients they use and the affordable prices.

Why would a "natural" skin care company use so much scent in a facial product? It was aweful. Anyone with fragrence sensitivities would have a big problem with this cream. That's my biggest problem with this product. The cream itself was actually very nice! Not too oily, yet it seemed to nourish my dry skin. It also didn't cause any breakouts. However, because of the scent, I would never by this product again.

For some reason this product just didn't seem to agree with my skin. The pros of this product are that it's natural, no parabens, reasonably priced, contains hyaluronic acid, not tested on animals and I like the fact it's in a jar. However, I have oily skin, and I noticed that after a couple of days this product caused some small outbreaks on my cheeks, but worked really well on my neck (where I've always had lines) and forehead. I also found the cream to be a bit too heavy for my skin type and I can never get it to fully absorb into my skin. So I've decided to use it it only on my neck where it has improved my neck lines, so I probably would buy this again as nothing else has managed to improve this "problem area". Probably this cream is more suitable for dry/mature skin types.

This is a nice light day cream for my combo/oily skin. However, we are going through a rough Canadian winter and I plan to purchase the Night Cream as it contains macadamia nut oil and a higher percentage of hyaluronic acid. I like this company as they are very generous with samples and they are minimalist in their ingredients listings. Also, their prices are not unreasonable.

I have combination skin and thought that the hyaluronic acid would be great for the dry components of my face. I was wrong! Like another reviewer, I had to use another moisturizer on top of it. Perhaps the night creme is better.

Goes on light, moisturizes. Nice scent. I wish it had some SPF protection. Otherwise, it's not a bad product. Unfortunately, the product comes in glass jar which does not travel well because it's a bit heavy. Also, if you're going to travel with it, remember to screw on the lid tightly (it's probably a good idea to put it in a zip-lock baggy). Otherwise, you'll find a mess in your bag when you reach your destination!

This is definitely not for dry skin. I have a sample package and had to use my regular moisturizer (that has hyaluronic acid in it) over the top. Also, I love the smell of plumeria, but this did not smell like plumeria! It smells like I've been cooking with red wine vinegar or sherry...and that is not what I want to smell like.

I just tried a sample packet and so far I like it. It does have a scent, but its a nice one and I dont find it too overwhelming. I have normal-dry skin and my face actually feels good right now! No tightness, itchyness or greasy t-zone. Will keep using the packet up and decide from there if I wish to purchase it. Love that its cruelty free and paraben free.

I tried a sample packet of this and while the actual product is quite nice (provides a fair amount of moisture and sinks in well after a few minutes), I cannot stand the scent. I have sensitive skin and the strong scent of this product is horrible! I will not purchase it for that one simple fact. On the plus side, it didn't cause any breakouts, but I only used it for 3 days before the scent of it really got to me and I threw away the remaining product left in the sample.

I have combo skin, adult acne and use bare minerals foundation. This goes on very well and sets up for the perfect base to my foundation. Smells great, and lasts a long while.

Very hydrating, this rich day creme if filled with great ingredients. It contains aloe vera gel, green tea, glycerin, jojoba oil, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin A. I do find the plumaria scent a bit too strong though so make sure you like the scent. This is formulated differently than the Hyaluronic Acid night creme which has a higher percentage of oil( from macadamia nut )and more hyaluronic acid in it too. Free of paraben preservatives.
