After too quickly finishing the last bottle of my beloved Cosmedix Emulsion, I was in need of a product I liked as much (I would have settled for almost as much) without the healthy price tag. I tried several things (The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Night Cream, Organic Rose Hip Oil, Mountain Ocean Skin Trip Coconut Moisturizer and several samples of MB moisturizers) that fell flat. My skin is combo/sensitive/breakout-prone, and drier in the winter. It has been down-right cold here, with little to no humidity, so I was in need of something rich. My fear is that with rich you usually get heavy... and I was concerned about breakouts. Then along came this little gem. It is exactly what I was looking for. The first time I tried it, I was deeply concerned that it was going to break me out like crazy... it is the consistency of whipped petroleum jelly... it didn't! In fact, it make my skin feel and look like glass... I glowed! My dehydrated skin improved with every use. When I ran out of the sample, I was forced to use some of the other products I had... and my hydrated glow soon disappeared. Nordstrom was out, so I was forced to place an order directly with MB... I'm glad it worked out that way, because they are super generous with their samples... and I received an additional gift and discount with my order. Well, needless to say, I'm back to loving my skin... and loving this product! Alas, I gave it only four lippies because of its packaging... I prefer a pump.
**UPDATE: After prolonged use, I stopped getting the "glass" feeling this product once produced... in fact, it kind of seemed to just sit on top of my skin and not do much of anything. I tried to figure out what, if anything, I was doing differently to cause this product's sudden ineffectiveness. When I couldn't figure it out, I surmised that it must be what happens with long-term (month+) use, so I returned my jar :( **
