I am almost done my tube so I believe I gave this a fair try. This did not do anything for me in terms of moisturizing and I found it irritating for my skin. It gave me red spots and broke me out on numerous occasions. If you have very sensitive skin, this is not for you. I was eager to try Dr. Hauschka since I heard so many good things about the brand but this cream really was not for me. It has a very strong "granny" smell, and the texture is richer than a lotion but not as rich as a cream. It has a mustardy yellow colour. I wore it twice a day for at least two weeks at first (now I am just trying to finish it) and I still had dry skin. However, I have combination skin so maybe I did not choose the right formula. It was very expensive, maybe 45$ CAD at the health food store. The packaging is a metal tube, so it's okay. Maybe I should have returned it.

I received a sample-size tube of this inside one of the facial trial kits. It sat around unused for monthes (other than on the back of my hand) because I didn't like the smell and felt sure that anything citrusy smelling would dry out and irritate my sensitive/oily/mildly acne prone skin. I recently stopped using Retin-A since it was way too harsh. Between that and going out in the sun my skin was a little bit dry. After reading reviews here that assured me that the lotion was very gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, I gave it a try. It moisturized the dry patches and seemed to dry out the acne! A miracle for combination skin! It gave my face a glow but did not leave it greasy or shiny--and I used it on a 95-degree day with nasty humidity! Did not cause any break-outs but I also haven't been using it long enough--will update in a week or two. It just made my skin look and feel SO nice that I was moved to write a review of it. I am considering purchasing a full-size tube if I still love it when the trial-size tube runs out. How to use: I use a very small amount (just barely bigger than pea-sized) warmed between my fingers and pressed onto my face while still moist from Dr. Hauschka toner. As I said, gives you a glow and won't leave you greasy. I actually have been using the whole line for a couple of weeks and people have been commenting on my skin and asking what I use. If this moisturizer keeps working wonderfully it will top my list as my FAVORITE Dr. Hauschka product. (Right now the day oil tops the list!)

I can't say enough good things about this moisturizer! Finally... a day cream that packs the moisture in without leaving a greasy film on skin. Love it, love it, love it! And I haven't even gotten to the delicious smell yet! Like lemon merangue pie! Yummy! Perfect moisturizer for someone with slighty dry or normal skin.

Will repurchase for sure!

I bought this on Ebay and have used it for a week. It works well under makeup and doesn't cause my face to breakout. I hate the price, but haven't found anything else that comes close.

I bought the "mini" sampler of this product and I like it. It's not as strong as Rose Day Cream (meaning oily) and it doesn't leave the shine. Thumbs up.
