When I tried this moisturizer I thought it was going to make my combination skin look oily. I was wrong! I absolutely love this stuff. My skin is beautiful now, thanks to this miracle potion!
And...the smell really isn't that bad. I think it smells a little herbal, like lavender.

I was really excited to try this product, and was very disapointed with it. Like others have said, the smell of it s really horrible. My boyfriend won't let me near him after I apply it. I've used the whole tub of it, and I don't see a change in my skin at all. I have very dry skin, especially in the winter months, and this product doesn't give me enough moisture at all. Although I actually liked the light whipped texture of the cream, it wasn't enough for me to want to buy it again.

I like this moisturizer. It's has a whipped consistency and is extremely concentrated so you only need a dab of it and you're good to go. I really hate the smell (herbal,lemony,rancid)and don't understand why these cosmetics company's feel the need to drown their products in fragrance.I don't think that it is worth the price considering you can get this in a drugstore for cheaper and fragrance free.

I bought a tiny jar of this at Sephora for $15 and I'm happy I only bought the tiny jar instead of dishing out the exorbitant amount of cash needed to purchase the regular size. I liked the consistency of the lotion when I was scooping it out of the jar but that's about it. It left my face feeling sticky and after two days of use, I broke out badly on areas of my face where I never break out. It doesn't moisturize and it smells weird, I can't believe Philosophy gets away with charging so much for this stuff. Once again I'll be going back to my Cetaphil cream, I guess I should learn my lesson and stop trying the expensive moisturizers out there because most of them tend to be overpriced crap.

A little bit of this moisturizer goes a really long way, however, it seemed like no matter how little I used, it still made my face look horribly greasy after an hour or so. The smell was quite strong, and it also pilled like crazy if you rubbed it too much. I didn't find that it acted as a very good primer for my makeup, but I was unable to use my BM primer because then the moisturizer would pill. It was really irritating brushing off little balls of moisturizer/primer and then picking the stubborn ones out of my makeup brush. Furthermore, I was not at all impressed with how it moisturized and it didn't do anything for my acne.

I really wanted to love this product. I have so much skin care from this company. I just can't get passed the smell - what is it? Lavander? WHY are they perfuming facial skin care products anyway? I'm going to finish it by using it on my forhead and neck - I just have to keep it away from my nose. Ridiculous. Will not buy again.

This cream was nice the first few days and then......... I broke out with bumps and pimples on my forehead! I was very disappointed and it smells funny! This one went right back to Sephora!

I have mixed feelings about this product. First, as the name suggests, it comes in a jar, so you may or may not enjoy dipping your fingers into it. Second, it has kind of an odd scent. The fragrance wears off fairly quickly but it does not smell good to me. My skin feels soft and smooth from using this product but not especially moisturized. This is good in the humid summer when I don't need a lot of moisture but it is a little light for the winter months. I would probably repurchase this as a back up moisturizer or for the summer.

This product is fantastic. I think it is a little overpriced but after continued use it has left my skin glowing. I think it takes a little time for the results to be seen. It's also light has a different texture than other moisturizers I've used. I used to use it all the time then switched and am back to using it again. I forgot what a wonderful moisturizer it is.

I have to give my 2 cents here because of all the bad reviews. I really like this stuff! I like the whipped feel, and it sinks in quickly and makes my skin very clear and soft. The smell was weird at first but I actually like it now. A jar lasts a long time too. Obviously this doesn't work for everyone, but try a sample and give it a fair chance. I've used 3 jars of it now.
