I received a sample of this which lasted for a couple days with nightly use. I did not particularly like it and will not repurchase. The smell is waaayy too strong and not in a good way. The packaging (I received it in a foil but I know it comes in a jar) is less than ideal. And the price is not right. The ingredients are so-so.

This broke me out terribly. I woke up with tiny bumps and super red skin all over my face. I normally don't react to products and don't break out hardly at all, so this was a surprise. I thought about what new products I had tried out and this product was definitely the culprit.

I had a little deluxe sample of this from Sephora, I didn't even use that much but after one application, I knew I'd never buy/use this again. I am wondering what ingredient did this, so that I can stay away from it in the future.

I got this in a travel size as a gift and was so stoked to try it. I kept it around for a while as I used up other moisturizers, but it was tightly closed with a protective seal on the top. So when I opened it up finally I was surprised to find that it smelled rotten (plastic-y mixed with awful granny perfume) and also that the texture felt weird, like it was separated (it goes on with a watery feeling and then quickly turns balmy and thick). However - after reading reviews I realized THIS IS HOW TJE PRODUCT IS! Sad that my first impression of the product is that it was rotten!

I purchased this hoping it'll be more moisturizing than my clinique dramatically different gel. It worked well. It goes on as a paste feeling then turning into a watery form before being quickly absorbed into my skin. For winter season in Canada, I found that it wasn't moisturizing enough. My skin was still feeling a bit tight after using this.

It has a faint smell. It didn't break me out after using 2 jars of this product.
I'd purchase it again for summer/fall season.
