Lovely. Nice, thick consistency for my dry skin, feels amazing on. I use it everywhere but my chin, which breaks out at times. If you have dry skin or patches of dryness, this is the moisturizer for you, plus, it does contain broad spectru UVA and UVB sun protection. The smell is absolutely fantastic as well.

Everything you would want,
Luxurious, rich, full of essential oils
And your skin really benefits from it
In the long run.
My face now looks great without makeup.
Loves you Bobbi x
P.s, what's all this rubbish about the smell?
It has a light lemony fresh smell to it, its the nicest smelling cream I have ever come across

Love it. My skin is very dry in areas and very fair so I have to wear sunscreen. In the past I have always had dull dry looking skin and foundation looked horrible. This cream is amazing. I put it on in the morning right before my makeup and everything after goes on beautifully. Granted, this moisturizer is heavy so it is not for the oily or combination skin types. You really need dry skin to appreciate it. I also like that it has a very light smell as I really don't like moisturizers for my face to be heavily perfumed. The price is the biggest kicker though but a little goes a long way unlike other creams that I had to slather on to feel like it was working. The jar lasts me close to 6 months. For me $85 2x per year is worth it.

I am a big fan of Bobbi Brown products but I was very disappointed with this moisturizer. I found it be quite thick and VERY greasy. I normally have very clear skin however, after a week of using this my face broke out in pimples.
I do like how this moisturizer smells but it's just too thick and greasy for me :( I will not buy this product again.

I have been using this product for a while now.. It is way too expensive but I must admit there is a lot of product.
It is very creamy and moisturizing and makes my skin feel flawless.
The smell is lovely. The packaging, which is kind of very BB is classic but I am starting to dislike glass jars.
Has it made my skin better? not sure, because this is just one of the many products and cleansers that I do use. Is it good -- yes. Is it worth the heavy price tag.. doubt it.
There are many other products which can dupe this.

Wouldn't call this a balm, it's pretty much just a rich cream.
I love this stuff and it's soothing when my face is feeling irritated and my allergies are flaring up. Crazy expensive which is a downside.

Overall, I love this product, I just wish it wasn't so expensive! Its 85$ for 1.7 oz. This is the best moisturizing sunscreen I've ever used. When I apply it in the am, I don't have any dry, flaky skin till the evening. It does have an odd medicinal smell that goes away after several seconds. I have very sensitive skin and this has not broken me out. I have repurchased it once.

This is my HG winter-time moisturizer b/c it is super-thick and rich, and my poor extremely dry skin just drinks it in. When I don't use this, my fake gets flakey during the day; and I keep a small container in my bag. I also like that it has SPF 25. It's hard to find a good moisturizer w/semi-high SPF that doesn't smell chemically. I actually find the scent of this product quite pleasant and will continue to buy a new jar every winter.

Sample with purchase, nice fresh lemony smell. used this for where my skin was very very dry from the cold, and it did the job. a bit too oily though

I received a sample packet of this from BB with another order. As I applied it, I was immediately overcome with a very stong stench. It seemed like a combination of perfume, noxema, and the "wet dog" smell from Philosophy Hope In a Jar. Yuck. While I didn't see lavender oil (like in HIAJ) in the ingredients, it does have many essential oils (primrose, rosemary, bitter orange) and citronellol. NOT a good combination. (Note: there is no perfume/fragrance listed.) The scent lingers, it does not dissipate rapidly. I wanted soooo much to wash it right off my face, but I didn't. I stuck it out.
The product itself is extremely moisturizing. It has a nice thick consistency and feels great going on. But it doesn't completely sink in, leaving your skin feeling slightly greasy hours later. It would be something to wear at night, IMO, but there is no reason for the SPF 25. If you have extremely dry skin, this would be a really nice treatment. The moisturizing properties are great. That said, I will not purchase. I cannot handle the smell.
