I've been using this for about a week now and so far so good. Most cleaners usually dry out my face and leave my skin feeling tight and dry, but this one just left my skin feeling clean minus the dryness. The scent reminds me of grapefruit which I know many people don't care for. And in reply to another reviewer (at the risk of being a little snarky), it does not leave shimmers on the face. It only looks "shimmery" squeezing out the bottle, but if you actually use it and wash your face, no residue is left over. Maybe they just looked a it and made an assumption.
Love love love it! By far my favorite foundation. It matches my skin tone perfectly, and leaves a nice smooth finish without looking cakey. I like the packaging and the pump. I was a little concerned when people said it was "glittery" but honestly it's a slight shimmer that is hardly noticeable noticeable. Perhaps because I have dry skin, it helps prevent my skin from looking dull therefore no one has ever noticed. I also only use one pump which give just enough coverage. I've gotten nothing but compliments with people telling me my skin is looking fantastic. The only downside I have is I have very dry skin and it sticks to my dry cheeks, but I have yet to find a foundation that didn't.
Keep in mind that it is a cream not a lotion so you don't need to slather on a lot, a little goes a long way with this cream and being as how big the jar is, it will last you a while. Also If you have acne prone-oily, or maybe even combo skin, this might be too creamy for you. The jar does say dry-very dry skin (red flag right there). Most moisturizers I've come across are either too greasy and don't absorb well or not moisturizing enough for me. I bought on a whim because I needed a moisturizer and you get a lot for your money with this one. I am so happy I got it! It absorbs and moisturizes well without being greasy, and makes my the skin on my face feel so soft and smooth. I noticed this right after the first use. I think I've found my HG moisturizer. I haven't had problems with breakouts or dry tight skin. My skin feels smooth and soft.
