Came in the 3 little wonders set from Ole Henriksen. I really like it as a sheer moisturizer. It goes on smoothly and delicately. It's a non-oily moisturizer that contains Vitamin E which I especially like as a good supply of nourishment for my skin without putting on my oils. Also has Vitamin C (stimulates collagen), fruit acids (retexturizing) and sandalwood, geranium, licorice and chamomile which has soothing properties. All of these things do many other things for your skin and I can see a difference when I wear it with just one use. When I want a very light, delicate moisturizer I reach for this one. Sheer Transformation packs a lot into its almost transparent moisture covering effect. As with any moisturizer, I always use it on my neck, decolletage, and the back of my hands. It's one that I can turn to day or night when I am looking for lightness in a cream that I know has wonderful ingredients that will benefit my skin. Another good one from Ole Henriksens line of products.

I've getting good results with this cream. It sits well on my skin and absorbs fairly quickly. I don't break out and it does a good job of moisturizing. I still get stubborn dry patches around some areas of my face during the winter, but it still works around the other areas of my face. I like that it's unscented and not greasy to the touch.

This was a decent moisturizer, but nothing amazing. It's a rather thick cream with a nice scent. I can still feel it in the morning when I wake up. Did not notice any transformative effects on my skin unfortunately.

This moisturizer felt very greasy on my combination skin and did not seem to sink in very well. Did not like the jar packaging.

Unfortunately this clogged every pore on my face.

Got a sample from Sephora, caused me to have a red rash on my face
do not buy

The price is steep for a moisturizer, but well worth the effects of the product. I have combination oily skin and I like to use this as my winter time moisturizer during the day because I feel that it's heavy enough for me. I didn't know it was supposed to help with discoloration - I don't feel that it does that for me. However, why I think it's so amazing is because this is one of the only moisturizers I have ever used that has helped me to get acne free skin. I can't figure out what it is about this product that works for me, but I adore it. I wish I could find something that works just like this for less money, but ever since the Neutrogena Oily Skin Moisturizer was discontinued, this has been my tried and true go-to product!

This was a line a stumbled when i went in to a Sephora that just opened in my local mall. I love love love this. Its so sheer and a little bit does the whole face. I am running low and will buy again. Its a great line!

If I were to rate this creme a few months ago, I would have given it 5 lippies. I first tried this in the Seven Skincare Sensations set back in August (it's now December) and I fell in love. I used up the entire sample size and purchased the full size. I used it day and night.
Now generally, I have pretty decent skin. If I take care of it, it generally remains clear and bright. I went back to school in September and noticed that I started breaking out really badly, but in no way did I attribute it to this creme. I thought it was just hormonal acne caused by stress. So I stepped up my skincare routine, making sure to cleanse, tone and moisturize day and night, using masks every other day, even buying higher end products from a local line to try and salvage my skin. But for months, nothing worked. I started getting cystic acne (which I normally don't get), my complexion was dull and more oily and acne-ridden than normal.
Then out of curiosity, 2 nights ago I was reading reviews on this creme and I had never noticed before, but in between all the raving reviews, some people had noted the high amounts of silicone in this product and that it caused them to break out. It horrified me to think that I was unknowingly sabotaging my skin for months, but I decided to put it to the test and stopped using it. It has been less than 48 hours, but now my skin is considerably clearer and brighter. My family members noted that my skin looks much better. It's starting to glow again, and it's no thanks to this moisturizer. Also it did nothing to lighten up any hyperpigmentation. I loved that the texture was so soft, light, and fluffy, but now I know that's due to the large amount of silicones in the creme. It's obscenely expensive, the packaging is unhygienic, and the nearly full jar that I have will be going in the trash.

Out of the few Ole Henriksen products I have gotten to try, I liked this the most. It claims to fade skin discolorations and does exactly that. A little goes a long way so you don't need much. The results came fast for me. I have many acne scars and within only a few nights of using this, my skin looks clearer and feels smoother! I'll give this a longer trial to see if it starts to break me out or stop working. I will be repurchasing if it doesn't break me out.
EDIT: Broke me out. Too much silicone in this product.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I don't even know what else to say. It does everything it says it does. You will not regret it. Use with the whole trio kit and you will love it even more. <3

I am in LOVE with this. I have oily skin and live in southern California - I hate anything that doesn't absorb quickly into my skin so I normally use Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. However, in the fall/winter, I switch over to this cream. It is incredibly moisturizing but it absorbs just as fast. No breakouts, no residue, and I've tried MANY moisturizers. I haven't noticed any of my scars getting better, but I actually got the 1 oz. size as part of a beauty insider deal, but I will definitely be purchasing the full size when I run out.

I'm currently on my 3rd jar. It took me a while to warm up to this product. After the first jar I didn't notice any huge improvements in my skin. I figured I'd switch back to cerave (a more affordable choice) after a week of using it my skin had broken out in cystic acne on my cheeks and my neck was flushed and warm to the touch. I bought another jar of the sheer transformation and it helped my skin get back to normal. I enjoy the consistency. It's very light-weight and absorbs almost instantly. It doesn't make my skin feel heavy or oily. I'm prone to break outs and this products doesn't aggravte or cause any acne for me. I'm not a fan of the packaging but I can live with it. I think this moisturizer is best suited for oily skin. If you have dry skin I don't think this would provide enough relief. I'll continue to purchase this (despite the price tag) because I like the way it makes my skin feel and it doesn't break me out.

I absolutely LOVE this moisturizer. I got a super deluxe sample size from Sephora last year that lasted me several months. I was hesitant to buy it again because it's a bit expensive, but nothing else I've tried works as well for me (and I've tried a lot!).
I love how light this feels on my face. It doesn't make me feel greasy in the least but it's very moisturizing. And it doesn't break me out (in fact my skin is the clearest that its been in ages when I use this stuff).
Overall I'd highly recommend this product. My only complaint is that I wish it came in packaging that was more hygenic.

Terrible for acne-prone skin.

I got this from the three little wonder kit. I tried the three products together at the same time. It turns out, only the serum is good (but the pump of the bottle sucks). When i first started using the gel and cream at night time, i used the cream after the night gel. The products didn't absorb, just sat on top of my face. I stopped using the night gel and found the cream absorbs fine when used alone, the gel still doesn't when used alone. I stopped using ole henriksen product for a while, just started to use this cream again. It broke me out! My face is covered in red bumps! I stopped using it for two days, my face cleared up. I started using it again last monday, my face is covered in red bumps again! So many red bumps! I was sure that this cream is the cause. I just got on makeup alley to be more certain. I was right! This does make me break out! It's silicone bases and is awful for people with acne prone skin ( I used to have lots of acne, but I just get one or two once a month around THAT time). Several people wrote reviews saying this. I am throwing mine away right now! Should always read ingrident list! am so disappointed with ole henriksen products!

I received a large sample a few months ago and have been using it only at night. Il love it! It is perfect for my aging but oily skin. It doesn't break me out, feels super light and just melts into my skin. I still have tons left, but I will likely buy it when I run out. This is great for oily skin. I plan to start using it in the morning once I run out of my Estee Lauder (also a free sample).

This is a great moisturizer. I've used my entire jar! My makeup applies great over this. I haven't had any issues with my skin. I have dry skin and this worked using day and night. I'd give it a 5 for being a perfect moisturizer, but knocking off a point for saying it will help with hyperpigmentation. I have freckles and brown spots ( lucky me) and this did nothing for them.

After using this cream for over 1 month, I'm starting to feel it is a little bit too heavy for me as I got greasy by the afternoon. Plus it didn't do anything for my breakouts and doesn't have SPF which would be nice. I switched to B Kamins Matte Moisturizer with SPF15 which I am loving! It cured my oily skin and I get no more breakouts now. Don't get me wrong, Sheer Transformation is a good moisturizer but not the best for oily skin.

This product is out of my price range, unfortunately! I got a sample from Sephora about a year ago,and it is a miracle cream...it's plenty moisturizing, has a nice clean sent, doesn't irritate my skin, and is great under makeup. Ah, hell, I suppose I'll have to get this after I run out of my Aveda SPF moisturizer.
