EDIT: Crap!! This started to break me out, which I was praying it wouldn't but no, stopped everything and this was the culprit. So sad :(
I like many others tried a sample of this, I was literally amazed in the morning when I woke up, it soaked in completley and I could tell when I rinsed my face because nothing came off! At the time of purchase, I thought it would just be a good thing to plump my face up and I just like the extra moisture. I did also purchase this with the Orjene Organics face serum (dif brand) but I thought that serum would be amazing. Well it caused me to breakout really bad and then I got dry round rough patches too. I immedialtey stopped that and continued this. I feel like this helped me heal my skin faster, the redness is gone and my dry patches are smoothing out. It helped calm my skin and for that I am grateful! It's pricey for me, BUT a little goes a long way! And if its too greasy try using a little less. :)

This is an oily but not too oily balm that really moisturizes and keeps your face plump till the morning! I love it and will repurchase whenever I can afford it again!

Tried a bunch of samples for the heck of it because now that the weather is changing my skin turns dry. Loved it after Day One. I woke up to skin that was so soft and smooth it shocked me. And even through the day my skin was perfectly hydrated and my foundation looked better all day. I immediately bought a full size. It isn't greasy to me (but like I said I lean dry) and it doesn't break me out (however I am not acne prone). Somewhat expensive at about $35 a jar but worth it to me ~ I have hard water and live near Chicago so winters are tough on my skin. So I will for sure buy again!

I have very oily skin and found that I can use this any time of the day. Before, I tended to listen to suggestions to try gel or light moisturizers, which is actually not adequate for re-moisturizing most skin. Then my oil glands went overboard trying to compensate for the moisture loss and I was left with even oilier skin, possibly dry patches if I hadn't caught on to the problem soon enough. I can't say that this reduces my oiliness because sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't (I don't even believe there's a miracle product that can solve this problem, so...)
All in all, I love this stuff and I store it in the fridge. It somehow feels oilier when applied at room temperature and I feel like I get too much product that way. The cream also feels firmer when cool, but it's up to you. Just something to experiment with. :)
Keep in mind if your skin type is oily: a little goes a long way.

TOO OILY/heavy for my oily skin. I was wondering how could this be fore 'everyone's' skin. I got few samples and ended up using them on my hands , won't recommend at all for people with combination to oily skin.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
I really like this stuff! I have combination skin, slightly oily t zone and sesonally dry patches on my cheeks and next to my nose. Dry patches that actually get so bad they itch and flare up and flake, yuck! As we transition into colder weather I thought I would give this a try based on some previous samples I had tried. It is a bit "greasy" when initially applied but seems to sink in and do it's job overnight. My skin feels so plump and hydrated in the morning and baby soft.

Full Disclaimer: I reviewed a sample of this product a few years ago when I probably shouldn't have due to my skin type. I'm combination oily so this product felt as if it was just sitting on my face - much too greasy, better for dry skin.

I would give this 4.5 if I could. I have normal/slightly dry skin in the winter and this moisturizer works well. I put on a dime size at night, let it soak in (takes a minute or so) and in the morning, my skin feels soft and supple. It feels thick going on, but once it sets into the skin, it's not heavy feeling.

I really like this moisturizer. Because of it's thick, almost petroleum like texture, I was really nervous that I was going to wake up to a breakout. Luckily, this didn't break me out. Because this cream is very concentrated, it's not that easy to smooth over my face. I apply it in upward/downward strokes, which requires minimal rubbing. My face is left looking like a grease ball. I really don't mind because it's common with "night" moisturizers and I sleep by myself. By the morning, it has all absorbed into my skin and there is no oily residue left behind. My skin is rejuvenated and very soft. I really like this and recommend it if you have dry skin. I only used a sample of this for 3 days, and I plan on purchasing a full size in the future for when my skin is lacking moisture.

HG nighttime moisturizer. It may feel a little heavy at first, but the trick is to really work it into your skin before you go to bed. The next morning, my pores are smaller, and my skin is extremely soft!!! I normally wake up with dry patches on my skin, but this has done wonders to my combination skin. This never breaks me out even though I break out with just about everything that I put on my face. I also have very sensitive skin, especially eye area. This has also helped with the deep lines I get underneath my eyes from the lack of sleep. I normally have 2 deeps lines under my eyes, and now I have just one shallow one haha. AMAZING moisturizer. I will always have this as part of my skin care.

This is pretty moisturizing, bordering on too greasy for my combo skin. It feels a bit heavy going on, but I suppose that's expected of something that delivers "extra" moisture. Texture is a light cream, I thought I'd be a big fan but I'm just not crazy about it.

I got this as a sample with my catalog that I requested and it's so wonderful! This is the first moisturizer for me that promises what it says it will do. I have acne combination skin. But since now that I'm getting older, my skin is starting to be dry and flaky and less oily. The first time I put it on, it was a bit too heavy (I guess because I put too much on it. So only use small amounts if you do try this product.), so it made my skin greasy throughout the night. But the next morning after cleansing my skin, I noticed instantly that my skin was soft, brighter and smoother. It even helped with my acne too. I loved how my skin felt. I was also using EA Overnight Success serum at the same time and I think that boosted it too. So the next couple of days the moisturizer wasn't too heavy on my skin anymore since I was using small dabs here and there on my face and I didn't even break out, which was really suprising for me (because I usually do when I try new products). But as soon as the sample ran out I noticed that my skin wasn't smooth anymore and started to flake a bit and my pimples became more visible too. The sample lasted me 5 days. So then I definately knew that I needed to order the night time moisturizer and I did just an hour ago. I love this product! Especially now that winter is coming, this will help my skin to moisturize during the cold nights.

I tried this product from the samples i received together with my dhc orders. I'm glad that I didn't purchase this coz it's too heavy for me...my skin didn't like it.

This is a fantastic night time moisturizer. I have oily, acne-prone skin....but its also dry soon after washing. I know, annoying. I was really afraid that this would break me out, but its the exact opposite. I just wake up with refreshed skin. The only downfall is that your face looks like an oil slick after putting it on, but its before bed so who really cares?

After several years, I finally had to admit to myself that my beloved Clinique Moisture Surge wasn't quite cutting it anymore. While I love its feel and texture, my skin would feel dry a few moments after application. So when my jar ran out, I turned to something new. DHC Extra Nighttime moisture is filling the bill!
This cream is very thick - please don't try it if you're 19 with acne! But if you're one of those whose skin feels dry and tight as soon as you wash it, get in line. The first time I tried it, I woke up the next morning, went to wash my face and stopped dead because my skin felt so soft and silky. Amazingly, despite the texture, it does not clog my pores at all and does not even feel heavy once it sinks in.
I wish it were less expensive, but it's $10 less than comparable Clinique products so I can convince myself I'm getting somewhat of a deal that way. This is just a plain moisturizer - no other claims - but since I already use other anti-aging products, this is all I need at night. EDIT: Out of sheer laziness recently, I stopped using my anti-aging products and just used this at night. After about a month I noticed my skin looked tighter, brighter and more radiant! Maybe I didn't need all those other things.

i actually like this product, you have to rub it in really well but after that it absorbs into your skin and leaves you moist... i use retin a and when i use regular creams my skin looks horribly dry and flaky but this makes my skin dewy and my makeup looks a lot better in the morning.... more plump
i cant really comment on price because ive used only the samples so far.... but ive used a lot of samples and a little goes a very long way

If you are new to night time products, this one is a good place to start. It absorbs pretty quickly and leaves skin soft without feeling filmy. It's a pretty basic moisturizer - nothing special like their Q10 or olive oil. Still, it does pretty well. It would be a good start for people in their 20's as part of their skin care regime. I do use it, mostly in the summer, but being in my 30's I am looking now for more products with anti-aging properties.

Somewhat yucky & disappointing. Definitely not a miracle-worker! Sits on top of skin. Immediately rubs off on pillow.

Received a sample from DHC with their catalog. I use a mini-spatula so the jar packaging doesn't bother me. This is a very rich cream that sinks right into my skin after I cleanse and tone it. Not greasiness the morning after.

I guess I probably should NOT have used this anywhere near my eye area, but...I did. And my whole socket is reddened, darkened, and swollen. A total allergic reaction, and my skin is really not what I"d call sensitive. But it's reacted horribly with my skin, so I will throw it away.
