Got a 2mL sample packet of this from a high end cosmetics shop in PA. I don't like it. Too rich and thick (felt like body cream) and occlusive - and I have dry skin so I thought maybe it would work, but no. Also lots of synthetics - including Butylene Glycol (one step away from anti-freeze) and shimmery Mica (Um, why?).

Not for me.

After trying so many face creams that, on either end of the spectrum, did not moisturize enough so that I'd be dry by mid-day or were so rich they broke me out, I was given a sample of this one. I certainly did not want to get into the expensive department store products (I had been going to Mario Badescu salon, or Kiehl's, or the drug store, and sparing myself the hard-sell department …Read more

An MUA used this on me as a base for the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint. I love how soft this made my skin feel. It felt plump and moisturised without looking oily. I don't know about it 'blurring imperfections', but it is an excellent base for foundation. Your skin stays plump all day long.

I received a handful of samples of this after telling the SA at the Nars counter about my dehydrated skin. A few days later she gave me more samples, and today I had to buy it! I always thought I had super oily skin but I spent the last few years discovering otherwise. I've tried every oil and moisturizer but nothing is heavy enough for how dry I get in the winter (and even in the summer). I …Read more

I received this as a gift along with the Aqua Gel Luminous Mask. I have to say, that I do LOVE this cream. I have been using it off and on for about 2 months (maybe I would bust it out once a week)...then this past 2 weeks, living in Chicago, my skin has been put through the worst wind and cold. My job requires me to often walk outside from one building to another and i am exposed to a LOT of …Read more

If I ran out of this would I buy this again? Hell NO! And I wish I would've never bought it in the first place!

I love Nars. I hate this cream. Mostly because it is so expensive and does absolutely nothing for your skin. To get the same effect, try adding glitter to the thickest hand lotion you can find and lather it on your face.

Got a sample of this when I bought some nars makeup and wow I love it, been trying it for two days moring and night and so far no breakouts, my skin is usually pretty oily but I think it was super dehyrated because this cream felt thick for the first two times I used it but then my skin changed. It went from having to be blotted during the day two to three times to not needing blotted at all. I …Read more

I love this moisturiser. I have very oily skin, and during the winter in Chicago, it becomes dehydrated because everywhere is SO dry! I use it thick at night, and a thinner later for day, followed by Bobbi Brown's Extra Soothing balm, and that is enough to keep my oil glands from going into overdrive trying to protect my face from moisture loss. I go through about a jar a month. It's …Read more

I love this product. I have very dry skin and a very small amount of this moisturizes my skin so well. I used to use a $200 chanel moisturizer for extreme dry skin and I would have to apply and then re-apply 5 minutes later after the first bit absorbed. That is NOT the case with this cream. A dime sized amount works for my entire face making this $62 jar pretty reasonable.

I use the …

This cream felt great on my face, but was too heavy for my combo, sensitive, and somewhat acne-prone skin. It didn't cause redness or itchiness; it was simply too much. I broke out from it despite the NARS sales lady's assurance that I would not due to the good-for-you Omega-3s and what not. She also refused to give me a sample before purchase, even though I purchase NARS …Read more
