      I recently developed dry skin when I moved to Texas. I have tried multiple moisturizers but this is the only one that actually keeps my face moisturized through out the day and does not bother my acne prone skin.

        I have awfully dry skin and this product is heavy enough to moisturize my skin and leaving it dewy. I personally like heavy greasy moisturizers they work better for my skin than lightweight moisturizers. If you actually have dry skin, get this! Although it is pricey its worth every penny.

                    • Q:

                      I noticed this product contains petrolatum which can clog pores / cause me to break out, however the product is listed as non-acnegenic? Could you clarify this further? I have acne prone skin, but it is extremely dry due to the prescription acne creams that I am using. I love the moisture that this product provides but I am worried about it clogging my pores and breaking me out.

                      I accidently grabbed the Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator instead of the lighter moisture surge moisturizer. Is this ok to use under makeup, or should I exchange it? I have very dry skin.
