Oh my gosh! This stuff is amazing! I used this for several years and my skin loved it. But, I moved to an area where it was unavailable. I tried several other night creams for about a year, to see if I could find something similar. No luck, and a couple of them were way more expensive! We recently moved back, and I'm using this cream and will continue to use it from now on. It is just so nourishing to my skin. Every morning I wake up to soft, supple skin that glows! I also use the Almond-Aloe moisturizer with SPF-15 under my makeup every day and my skin is so smooth and even. My makeup just glides on and I've never had any problems with breakouts or clogged pores. The price is very reasonable for the quality of product you get. Give it a go!

I recently started wearing makeup again and possibly had a bad reaction to old or new makeup I used, but more likely to some old coconut oil I used as makeup remover two nights in a row. My skin became so dry, there were rough patches on my cheeks and forehead, and lines formed under my eyes. My eyes appeared puffy throughout the morning. Any attempt to wear tinted moisturizer just accentuated the dry patches and lines. I seldom have skin problems, so, needless to say, it was alarming.

I stopped wearing makeup and switched out my skin care regimen with rose water spray, rosehip oil, and a new eye cream all purchased from Whole Foods. After the first night of using them, I could already tell I would be needing something heavier.

After having spent so much money on new makeup and new moisturizing products, I couldn't bring myself to shop around Sephora or a department store to buy something that might work. On the other hand, drugstore products don't have the best reputation with skin care ingredients and they usually don't do anything for my skin anyway. I was still hopeful.

I finally decided on this cream among moisturizers by Alba Botanica, Juice Beauty, and Andalou Naturals well, really, because it was the only one labeled as an intensive night cream for dry to very dry and mature skin, which is definitely how I would have described my face at the time.

Like others have said, this is a thick cream that absorbs into your skin within minutes. There is fragrance listed in the ingredients, but it's light and fruity, I guess like apricot, I don't know. Even though this is the thickest product I have ever used on my face, I find both the consistency and fragrance pleasant. My skin ranges from normal to combination depending on the time of year, but that doesn't really apply since my face wasn't being its usual self anyway.

So, the morning after the first night I used this product, there was a dramatic difference. Not 100% normal, but the lines were reduced and I was confident my skin would be back to normal in the next few days. I wore a thinner coat in the morning all over my face, including around my eyes. I repeated this the next day with makeup over it, and my makeup did not slide off. (I do live in Seattle, which has a much drier climate compared to what my skin is used to.) On the second day, I would say my skin was back to normal. The rough patches were gone and so were the lines under my eyes. I have continued to use this as I feel like the more I use it, the healthier my skin looks. This product is not marketed as anti- aging; however, for me, I would say this is age- reducing. My skin is so hydrated, yet not oily at all. I am so content with how my skin looks now and am certain I will repurchase this cream when I run out.

Really good night cream! I have sensitive, dry-ish, clog-prone skin and need something really hydrating that won't break me out or clog my pores. This makes my skin really smooth and radiant and doesn't irritate at all. And I love the way it smells!

I know some would prefer it to not be in a jar but I don't mind, that means I can scrape every last morsel of it out of the jar to use.

I actually use this in the daytime sometimes too, it wears well under makeup as long as I give it some time to sink in.

The ingredients in this cream is excellent, especially for the price. The only thing that is kind of iffy is the PEG-100, which I can live with considering all the other natural ingredients. I work in a polymer lab and in the process of revamping my beauty routine after realizing that all the chemicals I work with comes in my cosmetics. It's really hard to find completely natural products, and this comes very close.

The cream is thick and absorbs really well into the skin. I have been using it for about a month and it's been great.

I have SUPER dry skin. Not dehydrated, which is what many people should be saying when they say dry skin. Dehydrated skin flakes and looks dull, where dry skin has teensy pores that can't absorb much. When you have dry skin, the dead skin doesn't flake, it sticks and builds up creating an impenetrable barrier of dead skin ickyness. To combat my very dry, sometimes to the point of painful, skin, I exfoliate a lot to get rid of the dead skin, but I still need something rich for after that so I can get to the problem before it starts. I bought this a few weeks ago and planned on using it day and night. I have to say this is just a meh cream for me. I also have very sensitive, not acne-prone, but I-look-like-a-tomato sensitive skin ( I never break out). This cream doesn't irritate my skin which is great, and it sort of moisturizes it, but not enough. It's enough to where there aren't rough and painful patches, but I can feel it when my skin is moisturized (one experience w/dermalogica) and this didn't come close. It also doesn't improve my ruddy complexion, which is another sign. When my skin is moisturized and healthy, it is glowy, but with this my skin is dull and still a bit blotchy here and there. I will keep on looking, but if I don't find anything better, I will have to stick with this.

I'm almost finished with my first jar of this & will repurchase. It's a very hydrating cream, yet doesn't feel greasy, doesn't clog pores, doesn't create an oil slick to wake up to in the morning. It smells good--a very light fragrance, but pleasant & it dissipates quickly.

This is a really great night cream for those with dry skin. I have used it off and on for years, repurchased many times. I like trying new products but will be going back to this for the wintertime. It smells good, has a nice consistency, and left my skin moisturized and soft without being greasy. The ingredients list is great and contains so many good-for-you ingredients. I highly recommend!

I've been using this cream for night and occasionally as a day cream for a little under 3 months. I'm impressed :) I have combination, acne-prone skin. No regular acne, but a one-time application of a product my face doesn't like can break me out dramatically and take weeks to clear up :(
Anyway, there is not one thing I don't like about this cream. I love the consistency, the smell, the way it sinks in yet leaves my face smooth and supple. Price is nice too.
Along with Weleda's Skin Food, this is by far my favorite facial cream.

Im 37 with oily, sensitive, skin. I break out to everything practically. I have used high end products all my life but within the last couple years i got on this natural kick and really started to take care of my skin. It has saved me hundreds of dollars and my skin has never been better. I use the whole earth science line, compared to alot of natural brands the smell is not overwhelming and its not loaded with lots of ingredients. this cream is emoiliant but doesnt clog my pores or break me out. It just softens my skin and i wake up to soft clear skin. I highly reccomend this and also with natural skin products its unlikely to clog your pores because the ingredients are natural and skin friendly.
