I'm currently looking for a new moisturiser. I've religiously used my Clinique dramatically different moisturiser for years now and I was looking for something different. I bought the 15mL version for $28AUD, but there is the 59mL which costs $110...In my opinion, thats a lot of money for a moisturiser.
Now, I have super sensitive, dry/dehydrated skin and this moisturiser claims that:
"The lightweight, rose scented formula helps to firm the skin's appearance and visibly minimise fine lines and wrinkles. Rich in antioxidants, this moisturiser helps to restore the appearance of youth and beauty, whilst providing intense hydrating to dull skin."
Maybe I got the wrong batch, but the moisturiser I bought does not smell like roses. It has a strong chemically smell which even I was put off by. Don't get me wrong, the smell eventually goes away but if you are sensitive to fragrant products then this might not be for you.
However, I will say that this moisturiser is lightweight. In comparison to my Clinique one, this definitely absorbs into my face a lot quicker. I also do find that this moisturiser helps improve any dullness in my face. However, there are cons. When I first used this, my face was stinging. It went away after maybe 30 seconds(?) but it happened. So this might not be for people with super sensitive skin like me. Although, it didn't cause any redness or irritation as far as I can tell, and the more I used it (just so I can finish the product) the less it stung on my face. Additionally, this isn't the type of moisturiser I would use if you're like me and you like to layer skin care products. I found this moisturiser pilling/balling up around my face which really is not a pleasant feeling. Moreover, I wouldn't recommend this as a moisturiser to use before makeup because the same thing happened and my foundation and moisturiser would start pilling/balling up.
Honestly, I can't say I loved this product. There are more cons than I can find pros, and the price tag of this product really doesn't give it any justice as to why I should buy it again. If you are going to give this a shot, please try the 15mL version before spending over $100 on a moisturiser.
