Comes in beutiful glass jar. i have relatively dry skin, so this really helps keep my face hydrated and makes MU application very easy. I know it's pricey, but I think it's worth it, especially since it's my face, and protecting it with SPF25 is important! I highly recommend this moisterizer! I will definitely be purchasing again!

The essential oil in this one make it a loser. It stings my skin and the smell is way way too strong. Also, don't even think about getting this anywyere near your eyes (as an SPF product).

I am currently using as a hand cream at my desk at work. Huge waste of $$$.

The MA recommended this to me when I went for a makeover. Before that, I had just suffered from a bout of food poisoning, my face broke out, became very dry and had been out of whack for a couple of weeks. After 3 days , my complexion was visibly fresher and "plumper". I was sooo pleased, I made up samples for a couple of friends. Now, I need only use it in the mornings to maintain the freshness. I would recommend that you rub the cream between your palms to warm it and then massage into the face. The amount varies according to the condition of my face. At normal times, I use a tiny bit. If you feel like the cream is sitting on your face, you're probably using too much.

I'm so sad because I really wanted this product to work for me, but just find it to do an average job. I feel like the cream just sits on top of my skin and doesn't really penetrate. The good thing about it is the SPF sunscreen protection and it is fairly moisturizing although i think if it soaked in better, I would be more pleased. I also don't care for the scent too much, although I think Bobbi was trying to make a product that smelled citrusy and pleasant. Maybe it's the sunscreen ingredient that makes it smell this way. Not bad but not excellent imho. I am happy with some of BB's other skincare products like the soothing balm and extra balm rinse though!

This moisturizer is good for those times when your skin is REALLY dry. I have combination skin and this would be too much for me during the day. But I'm assuming its for daytime usage since it contains SPF. The smell is a unique one and it doesn't bother me too much. I would get a sample before purchasing this.

If you have dry skin, this is great sun protection. It's a creamy, very moisturizing sunscreen that has the oomph of SPF 25. I have two big complaints, though. First, it has an extremely medicinal odor that does not dissipate as you wear it--I wish Bobbi would can the botanicals in her skin care products (or at least use less). Second, at $75, you can get LaMer's SPF 18, which has only a mild odor and is a tad less moisturizing (and better under makeup). I will not repurchase.
