I loved the packaging and the moisturizer itself is nice, but even though it says it's fragrance-free, this stuff smelled horrible to me. Maybe I got a bad bottle, or maybe my nose is just too sensitive, but I couldn't stand putting this on, so I threw it out. They have a new one, the "enriched intensive" version which is also fragrance-free, and actually is fragrance-free to my nose, so I switched to this one and will review it once I've had enough time with it.

For years I was using Jojoba oil as my moisturizer, but as I entered my 40's that just wasn't cutting it anymore. I went to to the other extreme and tried a $50 moisturizer that did nothing at all for my skin. I was skeptical about trying TJ Norish Moisturizer because I had tried a couple of other TJ face products and not had good results, but after the first couple of days I could tell it was making a difference. After a month, my prone-to-dry skin is perfectly balanced, and my T-zone isn't oily anymore!! And it hasn't cause any break outs. I use this in the mornings under makeup and the evenings before bed. It isn't a thick moisturizer, but not watery thin. It has no scent. Only four stars for the packaging because while the pump bottle is wonderful at home, I am going to have to transfer it to another container for travel. It is by far the best moisturizer I have ever used. I am so pleased!

THE VALUE MOISTURIZER.

This is my new HG moisturizer, largely because it is 1) cheap ($5.99 in the NW), 2) non-irritating for my very sensitive/red skin, and 3) oil-free.

It is loaded with great ingredients: aloe, shea butter, vitamins E, B5, A, and C, DMAE, collagen, ginko biloba, caffeine, calendula, green tea, hydrolyzed silk, copper, retinol, and CoQ, all-in-one that would normally be found in much more expensive products.

It does contain alcohol, but I have very sensitive, red-prone, Renova-abused skin, and I feel nothing but smooth goodness. It is very lightweight, sinks in very quickly, and moisturizes well without turning into any sort of grease slick.

One reason I tried it is because I started using MAC Body and Face, which is water-based. I've read on many blogs that using the same type of moisturizer and primer with the base formula of a foundation makes it last longer and prevents oxidization. Body and Face is water-based, so thought I would try this. So glad I did.

For those who don't know, Trader Joe's has the BEST return policy (on any product): even if you've eaten/used 3/4 of the contents, you can return it for a full refund, no questions asked, and without a receipt. So no-risk: try it!

Wish this moisturizer didn't irritate my eyelids and cause them to puff/swell up. I try not to apply it near my eyes but it seems to migrate down from the eyebrow area. Simple, beneficial ingredients so don't know what's causing the reaction. I use a retinol by Neutrogena for years with no problem so the retinol shouldn't be it. Convenient pump packaging. Lightweight moisturizer so I was excited to layer it with La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baum and Clinique Smart Oil during the winter and get some antioxidants. But during the second week of use my eyelids puffed up. It did leave my skin very soft and smooth plus it's fragrance free. I've got super sensitive dry skin...combo in the summer.

I agree with most of the other reviews. The absolute best part about this moisturizer is that it does what it's supposed to do (moisturize) without irritating your skin. It does not improve the quality of my skin over time, protect me from the sun, or reduce the appearance of wrinkles. I have oily skin and this is a very good winter moisturizer for me. I mix it with sunscreen and acne cream. I think the reason I gave it 3 stars is because I think I can do better. But it's nice to use something that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin or feel too heavy.

This is currently my PM moisturizer and I'm liking it because it does nothing. It doesn't smell, it doesn't burn/sting, it doesn't make me break out, and it doesn't turn my face red. At my age, I know I should be using something for wrinkles and all that, but everything I've tried irritates my face. This doesn't. It absorbs well and doesn't make me greasy. And it's cheap, cheap, cheap. And I love the pump. Enough said.

I want to add that some of the moisturizers that have given me problems include Cerave PM, Cetaphil lotion and cream, and Cerave cream.

I really wanted to like this product. I had recently moved to a city with a really dry climate and my existing moisturizer wasn't doing it for me. I spotted this at Trader Joe's and was excited to try it since it was cheap and it had anti-oxidants, which must be a good thing right?

I used it for about two weeks, and my cheeks started to burn from the use. Since I haven't been using anything else on my face, I'm guessing something in the moisturizer is irritating my skin, which is unfortunate since its really cheap, its all natural packaging and comes in a really handy size. 3 stars just for that.

I had some hesitations initially when buying this product but Trader Joes has an amazing return policy so I said what the heck, and I'm really glad I did. It took a little to get used to at first. I felt like it was a little too much for my face and took a while to dry so I played around with it and only use a tiny amount and add more if I need to, so it dries quicker now. I would wake up the next day after putting it on at night with a really nice feeling on my face. I wish I could explain it better, but it just feels really nice. I have KP on the back of my arms really bad and I haven't found a product that works to keep it in check. I figured if this can moisturize my face this well, what could it do for the back of my arms. 2 days later my KP is gone from using this lotion on it! I honestly can't believe it. For less than $6! I will update after a month since it's only been 3 days total but every day I wake up and am amazed. It's definitely worth a try.

I have SUPER finicky skin and for whatever reason, my skin loves this lotion! I tried it on a whim and have now been using it daily for almost a year. The ingredients aren't life changing for aging skin (I'm 38), but it is fabulous as a basic moisturizer. I use it in the morning only, before applying sunscreen/makeup. It's light weight, absorbs quickly, and has no scent. Love it and I hope they never stop making it!

I've been using this for about 3 weeks now. I like this moisturizer, though it's not HG for me. I comes in a pump bottle which is great. However you can't lock the pump, so this isn't good to travel with. It's fragrance free which is always good. The consistency is a bit thin and light. It blends easily onto my face. It doesn't clog my pores or make my skin dull. However, it doesn't provide enough hydration for winter months. In Spring, Summer, and Autumn this will be perfect. But in Winter I mix this with my vitamin E oil for that added hydration.
It contains great ingredients and the price is fantastic.
So, overall this is a pretty good moisturizer.
