This is a very expensive face cream ($94.00) which is absolutely not worth the money. Luckily I have several sample sizes that came with a GWP or two over the years so I didn't actually buy this. For reference I have dry cheeks and undereye area, very oily nose and chin, and normal forehead. I have fine lines on my forehead and also fine lines forming around my eyes and mouth. I like my skin to feel moisturized but not sticky especially in a moisturizer meant to be worn during the day.
Firstly, jar packaging. It's bad for the stability of the ingredients, and also horribly unhygienic. With a price tag this high you would expect packaging that would keep the ingredients stable and prevent bacteria buildup.
Secondly, fragrance. This is lightly scented, quite a pleasant scent but fragrance does not need to be on my face! I would like this cream a little more if it was unscented.
Lastly, greasiness. This applies greasily and stays moist for hours. I have no problem with stickiness in a night cream but not in one that will be worn under makeup and worn all day. This played havoc with my oily areas and ended up being sweated into my eyes in hot weather. Very painful.
I ended up using this as a body lotion/sunscreen on my arms (where it was still unbelievably sticky) just so I wouldn't waste this product. If you have very very dry skin then this might be ok for you, but for me this is something I would never consider actually purchasing.
