This cream was been suggested to me more than ten times by friends,relatives and whoever knows that I'm suffering from skin dryness so I finally decided to give it a go
It was priced 7$ in my local cosmetic shop which is a crazy good price for it's 283 gr volume.I prefer tube packagings and this one,wasn't even sealed.there's no expire date on the packaging which makes it look even more unprofessional.it has fragrance,well,it smells nice,a fresh floral scent and as a perfume junkie,it's scent doesn't bother me at all but I have a super sensitive skin and I prefer scentless skincare products
It has a creamy texture,not watery and fluid like,not very thick and oily,it's something in between.I like how it easily spreads on skin and absorbs well.I also like how it feels on skin,it doesn't feel heavy but makes my skin moisturized and soft at least for a couple of hours. 5,6 hours after application I can feel my dry patches again but most moisturizer's results completely fade away in less than two,three hours so this one isn't bad in this case.I usually keep it in refrigerator and pick it up with a tiny little spatula and use it on my face,neck and hands.my skin looks plumped after applying it and doesn't feel itchy anymore(I have eczema).I can't comment on it's effect on wrinkles and fine lines as I don't have them yet but my mom also uses it and loves it,she believes it really has positive effects in this case and that her skin looks younger and more firm after going through half of the jar
I like using it as my makeup base.my foundations look less powdery and blend better whenever I have this on my face
I believe it's not enough as being the only moisturizer for super dry skins,it's better suited for normal to dry ones.people with oily skin may prefer something oil free and lighter
as someone with super dry skin I like it as my daily moisturizer but I usually blend it with a drop of face oils or apply this to my whole face and put something very thick and heavy like QV Intense cream(it has Vaseline-like texture) only on my dry patches
It contains Mineral Oils which made me concerned as products that have mineral oils usually clog my pores.fortunately it didn't break me out but I wash my face daily with a mild cleaner and use 7th Heaven Strawberry Cream scrub or ST.Ives Oatmeal Scrub once a week.I'm pretty sure if I miss these steps for a week,it can cause acne
All in all I like it,but I don't love it.it's texture and effect on skin reminds me of Bioderma Autoderm(the one that comes in pump packaging) which has been my daily moisturizer for years,that one has much better packaging and is scentless but is slightly more expensive(it's 8$, 200mil)
I haven't decided on repurchasing because I don't think I will run out of it in near future

I wouldn’t recommend this product for dry skin. It’s pretty lightweight, and even after applying a thick layer of it, my skin went right back to feeling parched and rough. In the positives column, it’s one of the very few moisturizers to not break me out. (I have extremely acne-prone skin.) It absorbs quickly and comes in a giant tub for under $5.

I am on my 3rd batch. I enjoy this moisturizer so much! My skin has been dry this winter and I enjoy adding this moisturizer to my make up routine and night time regimen. I feel that for the price you really cant beat this! I do like to add a little drop of rose oil for added moisture. Definitely worth giving it a try!

Being a non paid worker during this government shutdown, I couldn't afford my usual moisturizer. I read wonderful reviews on this one, and even Dr. Oz has recommended it, so decided since I am on a very tight budget, indefinitely, this would be a good time to try this. Loving it!!! It's everything I would expect from a high end one, and adds a beautiful, healthy looking glow, to where I don't really feel I need any foundation. I guess there's always a bright side to things. If I hadn't been on this unexpectedly tight budget, I never would've tried this moisturizer. Makes me feel like all this time, I have been wasting a lot of money on the one I was using for many yrs.

price/performance comparison, I am very satisfied. but not enough moisturizer for very dry skin. I didn't observe anything about collagen effect.

This was highly recommended to me. I have very dry & sensitive skin. This does have a pretty strong scent for a facial moisturizer. This totally irritated my skin. I ended up using it on my body until it was gone. The consistency is typical and the tub a bit awkward.

Have used this for years and years. I keep the big tub in the fridge and scoop it out into a 2 oz. jar I've saved and ran through the dishwasher so I know it's clean. Then I just take the 2 oz. jar and shake out what I need into my palm so I don't have to put my fingers into the jar. You only need about a quarter coin size amount or less for face and neck depending on how dry your skin is. I love the collagen and elastin in it that plumps up thin dry or wrinkly skin. I even add actives to it and it has take a few with no probs. For really really dry skin, use twice a day.

I wanted to love this moisturizer. I read so many positive reviews from top beauty bloggers/websites so I didn't think I would be unsatisfied. it is a never ending supply sized container of it for $7, which right away I was happy about the value. the lid screws off to a large opening that I can stick my whole hand in which isn't practical for moisturizer. I use such a small amount I prefer a squeeze style, pump style or thicker consistency so I can pick enough up with my finger to dab around my face to blend. this consistency is kinda of thin and hard to pick up a smaller amount. I thought the lotion felt watery when applied. it didn't leave me feeling moisturized and hydrated. once I applied it, it absorb really quickly but felt so thin and watery that it wasn't satisfying to me. I also didn't feel it had any of the positive benefits to my skin that should of occurred from collagen and elastin. it didn't lock in for the day either. I saw my skin drying out as the day went on. I'm not sure what people found so impressive about this. I didn't find anything about it satisfying and I used it long enough to know it wasn't helping my skin at all and thank goodness for fair exchange policies. I was able to get a moisturizer I like instead.

I've read reviews on this product and most of people that didn't like this product is people with oily skin, so I've got a dry skin I thought that it wouldn't do something to me .. but oh god
my skin has huge breakouts now :(
I've never seen my skin like that even friends are wondering it's like they're huge and painful
I even saw a video of a dermatologist said that mineral oil in skin care products is not harmful or pore clogging
I'm honestly wondering if he is right .. but maaan this pimples on my face are HUGE
if it's from mineral oil or other ingredient it doesn't matter I WILL NOT USE IT AGAIN...
