This is the third time I am getting an inadequate recommendation from a BR facialist so I will stop going there. I have received a sample for this for dehydrated, milia prone, sensitive skin.It should NOT be used for any skin type prone to breakouts. The second ingredient in this is Mineral Oil. Pore clogging and cheap ingredient. Same as petrolatum. And making the absorption of any other ingredients in this concoction impossible due to the molecule size.

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Not Sure
I’m 24 with oily/acne prone skin and I would not recommend this product for anyone with the same skin type, although I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s made for? I really wanted to like this product since I spent so much money on it, but after using it for about a month, my face was still an oil slick with breakouts. This probably increased my oil production 5x, so much so that you could fry an egg on my face. I still got painful, underground pimples on my chin while using this. I continued using it because I thought my skin would balance itself out and reveal a beautiful glow. I used this in the mornings after the lait vip 02 and p50 (both of which I LOVE), but I had to stop using this product after absolutely no positive results. The packaging is also awful, I just don’t understand why a high-end skincare brand still packages moisturizers in jars? I was always paranoid that I was adding bacteria to the moisturizer from my fingers, even after washing them. The whipped texture is nice and the smell isn’t horrendous but also not anything I’d like to smell again in my life.

I recently received this as a sample when I reordered Lotion P50 1970. I wasn’t going to use it because I had a few breakouts at the time and I was nervous to try anything new but one night I thought my skin couldn’t look any worse and used it. When I woke up the next morning I couldn’t believe it. My skin tone was even and my acne was much better than the day before. My pores were also smaller. I finished using the sample every day for a week and the results kept getting better. No breakouts and pores smaller than they have ever been. I was praying this wasn’t going to be $300 because I was ordering the full size no matter what. So I was very happy when I saw the $91 price. The smell isn’t the best but I honestly couldn’t care less about the smell. It smells like yeast. I only use this at night and I’m very happy with the results. My skin really agrees with whatever is in this. I’d like to try more from this brand. A+

Each time I use this, I always wake up with a cystic zit or two on my face the next morning. It also leaves my skin slightly greasier than normal. This product feels too rich so if your skin is oily and acne-prone, this is probably not for you. Could work for dry, more mature skin, though. The smell is tolerable.

I used this back in 2008 in conjunction with P50 and other products in the line up. I used the products for at least a year because I remember repurchasing at least three or more times. My girlfriend, who has beautiful skin told me about iBR and also convinced me to get facials from a skin specialist who used these products along with specialized equipment. I got two facials -- the cost of which made me cringe. In comparison, the products seemed exceedingly reasonable. This moisturizer is good for combination skin and somewhat mattifying. It works to reduce flakes and normalize skin oil production. Perhaps if my issue was reduction of breakouts or skin texture, I might have continued with the BR line up. But, at the time, i didn't have the pore damage that I have now (due to subsequent ill fated attempts with natural skin care and essential oils). At the time, I was more concerned with getting milia extractions from my dermatologist and trying to decide if I wanted to do hydroquinone for dark spots from dermatological laser. So, the BR products didn't really address my needs. I also spent a lot of time with P50 and another one, perhaps p50V as well as the lait cleanser. At the time of this review, I find that Paula's choice BHA 2% liquid does a more than adequate job for less money. And, although I became accustomed to smelling like this product, my DH was really happy when I stopped.

I hate that I love this. It's *so* expensive, but after years of ignorantly mistreating my skin and having the big 3 - 5 coming up in a few weeks I've just accepted that at this point in my life if a $91 cream is what does it for me... well, that's just the way the cookie crumbles. Thankfully, I only use it a few times a week - on 'off nights' from my Curology Rx (tretinoin, azeliac acid, clindamycin), and it's so good that I STILL see all the purported benefits of this product. As others have pointed out BR products aren't known for their pleasant scents, and this one definitely has a yeasty tinge to it, but either it fades or I go nose blind to it pretty quickly. But even if that wasn't the case I think I'd deal with it for how calming, clearing, and hydrating this is.

i need lotion on my cystic acne and lotion always looked melted and greasy after a few hours. This lotion moisturizes and never makes me looks shiny or greasy. i glow after this. the ONLY other lotion that is better is creme de lamer gel! but thats too expensive to continue to buy.

This doesn't smell great, but it's perfect for problem skin. Only lasts 2-3 months when used 2x a day, but it gets the job done. It's not fancy -- although the price would make you think otherwise -- but it's great. Pair with P50 and VIP O2 cleanser and you're golden.

Okay, so I was VERY excited to try this moisturizer. It remains the most expensive skin care item I have purchased (recent college student here), which I justified by saying that I would save money but not constantly buying, trying and hating moisturizers. Thus I'm very sad to say that I bought, tried and hated this moisturizer just like the others. Some background: I have hormonal acne that is under control thanks to Duac, and oily, combination sensitive skin. I can't use chemical sunscreens because they make me break out badly, and I avoid heavy fragrances for the same reason. I'm also sensitive to a lot of oils, like olive oil, but can use mineral oil and a few others. I also use BR P50 and really love it. After heavy research, I thought that this moisturizer would be perfect.It made my skin greasier and made my forehead break out. It has lanolin in it, which I believe is responsible for the greasy feel. It did not adequately moisturize my skin, and I quit using it once I realized I was having to apply another moisturizer on top just to calm my flakes. Its smell is very tolerable to me, so that wasn't the problem. I am really disappointed with this product overall. I recommend the P50 with all my heart though — that remains amazing. Such a bummer!

I've never bothered to write a review on here because it seems utterly pointless (especially for something so expensive) HOWEVER: I feel like it's kind of my duty as someone with horrible acne and sensitive skin who's found something good to tell others about it.I broke down and bought this along with P50 1970 after a long battle with birth-control induced cystic acne. I was 20 years old with painful, embarrassing pimples on my cheeks and chin. It never, ever went away. The toner and creme from shoprescuespa cost me nearly $190. That is absurd. I am a poor, full time student. Unfortunately I had read so many good reviews and already knew the p50 was stellar, so I bought into it.P50 is too harsh to use on my skin more than twice a week, so it's helped a lot whilst lasting forever. The creme itself is almost doughy and smells it, too. I don't find it nasty but it does reek like yeast. It is VERY emollient, incredibly calming and moisturising. I noticed a huge difference in my skin within a month. It takes more than a day for your face to clear up and really keep your skin moisturised consistently, but it is worth it. I shit you not I have not had a real breakout in four months plus. My skin is soft and (god I hate to say this) "dewy" and clear. Obviously I'm not thrilled that it comes in a jar, but I wash my hands before using it and keep it in a cool dark place. It did separate a tiny bit after two months (oil like texture on top) but I gave it a good stir with a toothpick and it's been fine. I paid about $90 for this creme and it has lasted me almost five months, I'm sure it will last six. YOU ONLY NEED A TINY BIT AT A TIME: it is very emollient and spreads evenly and smoothly. You can feel your face soaking it up. Beautiful, beautiful moisturiser that has really made my life easier and when I go to France in May rest assured that I will be stocking up on a ton of BR products. I had horrendous, acne irritated skin since 12 years of age, and it is finally starting to calm down.
