This velvety cream won me over on the shelf with the first 3 ingredients: Water, Glycerin, and Shea Butter.
On my dry, dehydrated skin, it's pretty amazing how quickly it absorbed with no residual, no silicone-y coating. *shloop*-- my skin just drank it up and felt protected, comforted, and hydrated. Most rich skin creams tend to sit on the surface, clogging and creating a too-rich environment, but not this one. No irritation, breakouts, or stinging, Hydraskin Rich also has the ability to re-layer without pilling or greasiness. I like the fact that key ingredients appear pretty high up on the list, way above the fragrance and preservatives. Paraben-free as well.
I would recommend this for any dry skin in need of hydration and comfort without greasy build-up. It's a bit pricey, but if your skin is sensitive to everything else out there, you might want to give this a try. A lot of Darphin spas use this product in their facial routines, so much that there exists a 6.7 oz tube of Hydraskin Rich retailing for $200 (this I have).
if you're looking for true anti-aging technology in a moisturizer, look elsewhere. Hydraskin's not meant to compete with the peptides and sirtuins out there. it just does its job, yet simply and luxuriously.
