Horrible horrible, my face broke out in a hot itchy flaky rash after using it for a couple of days. It took almost a week for my skin to recover. And the smell was pretty awful as well. Very glad I just bought a small sample size. I went fleeing back to my DHC moisterizer as quick as the postman could bring it to my door!

No better and does nothing for me that the clearance CVS lotion didn't do... Very overrated.

What a BIG disappointment. I bought this product after all the amazing raves on Sephora's website. I don't usually break out (and if I do, it's limited to mother nature's monthly gift), but when I started using this product, BREAK OUT HEAVEN. I have never seen my cheeks so ridiculously red and covered with pimples. It's like this moisturizer was built to create/highlight acne. The smell was tolerable, but never ever again will I buy into hype.

Wow, when they said this product stunk they weren't kidding. I've owned a plethora of moisturizers and this is the only one that I've owned that felt like I was putting Crisco on my face. It felt like it didn't sink into my skin, just spread on like a mask. I'm all about super moisturizing cremes, but this one doesn't cut it for me. I'll use it up because I don't want to waste it, but from now on I'm gong to mix it with my Juice Beauty apple moisturizer on my dry days.

i hated this cream. it smelled really bad like iron and metal. and it made me breakout with a rash all over my face after a few days of using it. i tried it again about a year later and the same exact thing happen. maybe it's different for other people. not a fan. i had to spend lots of money and ended up giving it to one of my roommates cause it sucked so bad.

This I think would be better for dry and/or aging skin. I have combination to oily skin and all it did was smell terrible and grease me up. :(

This is AWFUL. Smells terrible, doesn't absorb into your skin, and when I carelessly wiped my hands on my towel after applying it it turned the towel BRIGHT yellow. I am absolutely positive this is what did it, and the color would not come out in the wash. What a waste of money.

This was an ok cream at best. It wasn't anything amazing & the only glow I got was from being shiny/oily looking after applying. It didn't absorb well into my combination skin (oily nose/forehead, dry cheeks). The smell was not appealing either. I had RIS a jar that was pretty full & was skeptical about the freshness because of the smell. When I compared it to a sample packet I just got, it was the same exact smell so I knew the jar hadn't gone bad. Would not purchase this & was glad I tried it first before shelling out money for it.
Try When Hope Is Not Enough in a tube -- it has the loveliest lavender scent & it is one of my staples.
