I've been hearing about this for years and years, and when I smelled it after I purchased it, it was so familiar I swear I've used it before. I have no idea when, but this stuff has been around a long time. It has the kind of scent that reminds me of beings backstage in theaters, so it's likely someone who did my makeup had it in their kit. Either that, or the fragrance is extremely similar to another skin care product...Having been oily the last 30+ years I'm not exactly an expert on moisturizers; especially ones recommended for dry skin. You are wondering, Why did you buy this, then?
Well, I moved to a desert climate a year and a half ago, and my face is now technically more "combination", depending upon dew point and relative humidity. My hands, always dry from gardening, housework, ignoring them, etc...have been rough and scaly to the point of discomfort. For the price of Lait-Crème Concentrè, I thought if I don't like it for my face it will be fine for a hand cream.
Turns out it just great for face, neck, hands...anywhere there are dry patches. I had been putting 8 Hour Cream on the dry, scaly parts of my hands, but it never absorbed completely and it got all over everything. Lait-Crème Concentrè is absorbed immediately, shockingly! It softens my skin instantly.
This is EXTREMELY concentrated. It's not a typical lotion at all. A few "drops" cover my face and neck completely, and that's all that's needed to make my skin feel wonderfully soft and resilient. I thought this, like every other moisturizer that's been near my face, would sit like a layer of grease on top of my skin...but this stuff just vanishes and leaves behind a silky feeling! Possibly this isn't, as I had thought, for dry skin after all. It perks up my skin and it does indeed work perfectly under sunscreen and makeup.
In addition to Lait-Crème Concentrè, I use Embryolisse Micellar Lotion for eye makeup, long-wearing foundation, and sunscreen removal, and I love it. Both products are remarkably gentle...no stinging around my eyes, and neither has initiated break-outs or milia. Sometimes the "basics" are just what's needed.

This is the only moisturizer I use anymore. I got a sample of it in one of the makeup subscription boxes I receive and fell in love.
I have combination skin so while it gets dry easily, it's a real challenge for me to find something to moisturize my face that won't also make it oily and cause breakouts. This product solved this issue completely. I use it mostly before bed and really let it sink in overnight. When my face is drier than usual, I also use it in the morning before applying makeup. While I still use primer, this moisturizer doesn't make my face too greasy beneath my makeup which I've had issues with when using other products.
I definitely feel the price is reasonable for the amount you get. I feel like it lasts quite a while too, which is great. I wish it was in a pump rather than the metal squeeze tube because I find it difficult to get the last bit of product out. It's also easy to accidentally squeeze too much out and you can't get it back in the tube like you'd be able to if it was rubber or plastic.

During this very bitter cold Nyc weather my skin was destroyed. My skin and neck were so dry, I had flakes all over my jaw line and around my mouth, I couldn't even wear makeup to cover it. I decided to give this try and in just ONE night my skin was soft and moist the flakes were gone. This is now my HG face cream. It worked in such a short amount of time and continues to leave my skin soft and dewy whohooo

This product is AMAZING. I could not live without it. I am on accutane and I have the driest skin in the world. With no oil production, I need an absolute amazing moisturizer that will make sure my skin doesn't get red, scaly and gross. This does just that. I use it morning and night, usually in copious amounts. It sinks in right away and doesn't give me a greasy feeling or anything. It doesn't give me more acne either.
The price is pretty reasonable for the product. For those people who say this isn't worth all the hype, of course nothing is going to live up to royal standards in the product realm. It does exactly what it says it is going to do.
So, everyone should try out this product. It's amazing and I couldn't live without it!

Yet another "cult" product that fails to impress me. This cream was not moisturizing at all, and also irritated my skin, making it feel dry and itchy. The same thing happened to my husband, who normally doesn't complain much about products I'm pestering him to try. My skin is dry and dehydrated, so I most of the time layer either a hydrating serum or a facial oil underneath my facial cream for sufficient moisture. Even with a moisturizing layer underneath, my skin felt drier by the day, and in the end, I had to discontinue the use of it. I'll hopefully find a way of making it work, maybe in the summer, but for now, this one has moved to the back of the closet.

This is a HG facial moisturizer for me. I use this in the Spring/Summer, since it's not too heavy, while I use a heavier cream for Fall/Winter. I have dry, sensitive skin and usually fragrance in facial products would be irritating for my face, but this stuff doesn't which was very surprising first time I tried it. It makes my face feel so soft and smooth.

I have finally found my hg moisturizer! I have extremely sensitive dry skin and this is doing the trick. I am usually allergic to fragrances but this is not bothering me at all. I had a small sample tube that lasted a week and then I ordered a larger tube. I easily found this online.

Turned out to be quite the plain jane for a highly recommended raved moisturizer. This seems to be one of those skin care items one successful model raves of & all of youtube land jumps on the bandwagon. Granted I do have the utter most dry scale reptile skin, especially in the winter months; similar to those that use prescribed acne medications/retinol etc that leads to peeling, thats me without all those chemicals so I thought I'd be the perfect candidate for this stuff. Yes it did relieve some of this, nOt the stubborn nose, edges of the mouth parts but the overall effect was nice. (I use plain vaseline or oils for those areas.) My face felt really nourished, no grease & no tightness either; but it also went on a bit heavier than I like. I wish it was the weight of a serum, then the results would be truly outstanding; even achieving this much is quite impressive. But because it was SO hard to get here (I live in NY; you would think its more accessbile in the city atleast), costly ($25 for 2.6 oz) and didn't do anything besides the almost there hydration, I cant say I would go out of my way to repurhase this. Oh and I despise the foil tube packaging, after ONE use it never looked neat on my vanity again.

This is my HG moisturizer. It's great morning and/or night, both by itself and layered over treatment products. It's great under foundation. My skin tends to be on the dry side (normal/dry), and with most other moisturizers I can feel the dryness again after a few hours. Not so with this moisturizer. You can even slather it on thickly to use as a moisture mask.
I love the packaging--it comes in a foil squeeze tube like toothpaste used to, and it sits on its head. This is my favorite packaging style because you get all the product out and it never becomes contaminated.
It's pretty inexpensive for what it is. I keep a large tube in the bathroom and small ones in my travel and gym bags. The small tubes are perfect for traveling.

I have to say I only bought this because of the rave YouTube reviews but I was not disappointed. I got the double 100ml pack from City Pharma, Paris for 19 euros and it's been 6 months and I'm half way done with the second tube. It's quite a plain moisturizer but for some reason my skin has stopped crazy breaking out and my redness has diminished since using this. It's my daily moisturiser and I even went for weeks with only using this moisturizer and my oily skin has stopped being oily. I have almost normal (what is normal?) skin!! Best basic product ever, really a miracle!
