This moisturizer works really well as a night cream for those with oily skin. It sinks right into your skin, no greasy feeling, didn't make me break out... if anything, it improved my complexion. It's wonderful, except for... THE SMELL! Why, oh, why does it smell like that? The first time I caught a whiff, it reminded me of some kind of weird, metallic, iron-y type of scent. It is really a bizarre smell that's hard to even describe! If they could remove that odor, it would be perfect. Too bad!

I like this during the winter only. During the summer it makes my face very shiny. The smell doesn't really bother me that much.
Sometimes I use this as my night cream.

This product just doesn't do it for me. The moisturizer just sits on top of my skin. I can't imagine people using this after having chemical peels, as they have advertised. For the price, there are certainly better alternatives. This is definately going back.

Works wonders for me. Great to perk up my skin and make it glow in the a.m. The only product that has ever made a visible difference on my skin.
Update: New HG and much cheaper, alternating Nivea Creme and Clinique Total Turnaround.

This product smells so HORRIBLE. How could anyone like it????

I received a sample of this and had to throw it out before I finishsed it. It smells horrible, like plastic and the smell stays on the skin and doesn't go away. The smell somehow reminds me of plastic doll heads (???) I'm not sure why. Anyways, I must be allergic because it made my skin red, dry, and flaky. My skin is dry and sensitive.

Stinks like a monkey house. Did nothing for my skin except make my cheeks red as a baboon's butt (I tried this for 3 weeks between moisturizers to give it a chance)
I prefer UD's moisturizer far better.

I love this mosturizer! It is my new favorite. I have visable pores and since I have been using this product (along with Real Purity and Hope in A Jar for Lips and Eyes) I have noticed a huge change in the apperance of my skin in general. I do not have a problem with the smell and I don't have any issues with the consistancy of this product! Any thing that I don't like about this product falls to the wayside when I see the results in the mirror. Yeah for Philosophy!

I dislike this moisturizer. It smells chemical-ish and it won't blend onto the skin properly, it is very, very strange. I hate to have to give a bad review to a Philosophy product, since there are many of them I really like, but I don't like this one.

A very nice moisturizer! I wake up w/ soft, smooth, and glowy skin. Another winner from Philosophy. Will buy this one again

I used to like this product, but I now prefer the Paula's Choice 1% BHA Lotion. Hope in a Jar separated into a thick cream and oily liquid after about eight months, but I guess that would not be a problem if you use it up before then. :) It is not a bad product, but the PC option is cheaper and MUCH better.

I didn't care for this moisturizer. I found that it 'sat' on top of my combo skine to long and didn't sink in well enough.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I agree with a lot of earlier comments. It has a creamy but light texture and it feels nice on the skin, but it has this AWFUL plastic smell. This product is not so special to make me put up with the smell, so I won't be buying this again.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Very Oily Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
I loved the texture and the way it felt on my skin, but sadly, gives me zits.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
Definitely not the worst, but pretty close. The smell knocked me off my feet and I broke out terribly. I just can't use this product. I really wanted to like it because I've heard soooo many great things about it, but it sadly is not for me.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Unfortunately this product caused me to break out in little bumps. It has an odd smell that is unappealing.
Age: Unknown Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I really like this moisturizer. It does "drop into your skin like a glass of water" (their description) I find it light, but moisturizing and I love the texture. I've repurchased this for at least four years running!

Okay, so I didn't buy this product. I received a litle package as a sample at the Philosophy counter. After all the stuff I've read in the mags, I decided to try it. As soon as I opened the packet, the horrible smell got to me. after I put it on my face, the smell almost choked me to death! I had to wash my face for a few times and wait overnight before the smell fades. Yuck!

I must say that I love this cream with the vitamin c powder mixed in. Together, they work very well on my skin and even out my skin tone. Alone, however, I am not crazy about the cream as much.
