I wanted to love this, I have been looking for a good moisturizer for a few months and, in the end, I decided for this. I actually like it, but I couldn't say I'm in love with it. The scent is really pleasant for me, and I usually care a lot about this so believe me when I say it's nice and not terribly strong. When I put it in the evening I can see that the morning after my skin is definitely less oily than it used to be: it's no miracle but can a moisturizer completely make the shine on the T zone disappear? So, as far as the shine problem, it works. The reason why I didn't fall in love is that I don't really feel my skin being hydratated. I know it is, I just used a moisturizer after all, but I don't feel it being noticeably softer or smoother. I love the fact that it's 98% made with natural ingredients, and the packaging is really cute, but I couldn't say this changed my life. I feel like it's good for the spring or fall, and if your skin is combo like mine it's a good product.

I liked this product because it's something I always needed: when I don't feel like putting make up on but I have to run errands or go out for breakfast with a friend I definitely want to avoid the "just out of bed" look and I'm realy pale so I kind of look like a zombie in the morning. This is perfect for that. It gives my skin a nice, natural color and it doesn't clog my pores.. I don't even need to use make up remover! The scent is a little bit strong maybe, but it smells really good in my opinion, it leaves the skin incredibly soft and it looks really natural. It's no foundation of course in terms of coverage but I use it underneath foundation when I wear make up like a normal moisturizer.. I realized this was a keeper when a friend came over for breakfast on a sunday morning and I just got up (not exacly looking like a rose) and I put it on.. when she saw me she said "Oh gosh, I wished I looked like you in the morning! Are you wearing make up?" Maybe it's more a spring/summer product but I'm definitely loving it so far.
I absolutely love this moisturizer, not only gives a nice, natural and (yes, you get what the product promises sometimes) healthy color to your skin, but also is a really good moisturizer, it leaves your skin soft, hydratated and with and even tone. I started using it last may and I was a little bit skeptical at first, it would take a while for my skin to reach a visible result (and I have really fair skin) but I followed the suggestion and I started putting it on twice a day, and I loved the results! Not orangy or fake at all, it looked like I just spent a weekend on the beach. I was addicted to Jergens when I lived in the US, the only downfall is that it is not sold in Italy, where I live now... I'll start ordering it online because this is definitely a keeper!
