I received the 15ml sample size (with SPF 15) from a friend in June 2011. I used it up, and was impressed enough to buy the full-size tub of the SPF version. My skin can sometimes be sensitive to silicones, but the cream hasn't caused any adverse reactions, even though it does include some silicones.
It absorbs well, doesn't feel tacky or sticky on my face and leaves my skin happy and moisturised. I live in Finland (where the company is from) so the price was also very reasonable for a good moisturiser.

This made my under eye area puff up. It is very shiny. Got a sample at Walgreen's.

I got the SPF 15 version. I would not buy this again, but I gave it a 3 because it has no sunblock smell (smells very citrusy), is paraben-free, and moisturizes adequately. What I don't like is that it leaves my face with a sheen and I HATE that. Even with Bare Minerals over it, my face is still shiny. Also, the vitamin C is one of the last ingredients in this product - disappointing. UPDATE: I've found that if you use less the of the product, it doesn't leave as much of a sheen, but then I wonder if I'm still getting the full SPF 15 effect. I'll keep this around for days where I'm just running errands or something.

Love this product, I use this every day under my primer. I bought the SPF 15 version, which doesn't smell like sunblock at all. Overall, I think this is a great product and have repurchased many times. I took one lippie off for packaging... its very bulky!

I'm surprised at the negative reviews of this moisturizer. I've used a lot of different high end brands and found this one to be excellent. I don't get a greasy film at all, but I don't have oily skin. My MUFE foundations glide over it and my face retains the moisture until I cleanse. My skin looks great and I am very prone to irritation and breakouts. This did not cause any problems. It is paraben free and all natural and has a delightful citrus scent that quickly fades. For the price, I think this is a great product. However, it probably is better for more mature skin. I have used Murad Skin Perfecting Cream, Cream De La Mer and a range of others. I have repurchased this many times.

I'm surprised by all the negative reviews for this product. I guess I'm just lucky that for me it works wonders. My skin is extremely dry, and most creams do nothing for me. This cream soaks in great, keeps my skin feeling moisturized all morning, and helps wake up my face when I put it on. And even the teeny tiny jar from CVS at $3.99 has lasted me a month, so for me, it's a great buy too.

This moisturizer is one to stay away from. The thing I dislike most about it is that it finishes very greasy and I can't do anything to make my makeup look good over this stuff. I have oily skin and I am shiny if I wear this under makeup no matter how much powder I put over it. I've been using retin-a with this in the morning and it is not moisturizing enough to keep my skin from flaking, despite how heavy and greasy it is. It is also pretty irritating to my skin after I wash it, because as soon as I put it on it burns slightly and leaves my skin red for a while after I use it. I haven't seen any benefits to using this cream so far. I don't think it does anything in the age-defying department & whatever Vitamin C is in there is not doing anything to help smooth my skin or make it more even-toned, as it is supposed to. I'm still using this because I don't want to waste the product but i'm literally counting the days until my new moisturizer arrives in the mail & I wish I had returned this one after using it for a few days. I thought I'd give it a chance, but it hasn't helped one bit. It's more of a nuisance to use than anything else. I've just ordered Nature's Gate Oh What a Night moisturizer since it is the highest rated moisturizer here on p'ville and I'm hoping I will be able to use it as a day cream as well. I will chuck this stuff as soon as the new one arrives.

I bought the small trial size for $2.99 at CVS, good thing i didn't buy the full size. This moisturizer is way too heavy for me. However, I passed it off to my mom and she loves it! It is definitely a better product for more mature skin.

I wanted to love this product since I've been looking for a good moisturizer with vitamin C in it. The packaging looked good, and the ingredients sounded wonderful. Sadly, the love affair ended as soon as I started using the product. It clogged my pores horribly leaving me with tiny whiteheads all over my chin--something that has never ever happened to me before with any product (and I've tried a ton of them). It took ages to get rid of these when I stopped using the product which was a huge pain. I definitely don't recommend this.

Something about this cream reminds me of the yves rocher creams, being as I find it overpriced for the mediocre quality. The smell isn't great & it doesn't offer spf protection, which I think should be included in a day cream. Not particularly moisturizing & it doesn't sink in very well. I think I may use the rest on my hands. Luckily I got this for free as a gift, and I would not purchase.

This is a moisturizer for dry skin. Overall a nice moisturizer.The scent is cloud berry-ish Not too strong but if you are ver sensitve to scents I would avoid this day cream. However, it does not provide my normal to dry skin with enough moisture! For that reason I would not repurchase this product.
