My HG winter moisturizer. I personally find it heavier and more emollient than the Hydrating Treatment Cream. It doesn't seem to absorb as well and don't leave my skin quite as supple as the Treatment Cream but it provides better hydration and protection in winter so I'm sticking with it. My only complaint is the packaging. Since it's so thick, a soft tube would be a better choice than the hard plastic bottle. I always end up having to scrape the sides of the bottle with a long swab when I'm near the end since it's just too thick to come out on it's own. Two + years of use and no breakouts yet!

This is my other HG moisturizer. I prefer to use it under my make-up since it's a bit lighter than the Hydrating Treatment Cream but is still emollient enough to keep the flakies at bay in winter. I have the classic t-zone combo skin with very dry and delicate patches. The thick cream leaves a very supple, silky feel--not at all greasy or heavy. It's loaded with oils and -cones so it might not work for everyone. I'm prone to blemishes but haven't had any issues with Hydrating Treatment Cream...yet.

Very nice light silicone and water-based moisturizer. I use it during the height of summer for dry delicate areas like my eyes, the mouth area, and cheeks. Good hydration, lots of antioxidants, and a silky finish. Please not that Skin Balancing Moisture Gel is loaded with -cones so avoid if you are at all sensitive to them. I have combo skin prone to light blemishes but -cones don't make me break out.
