Has shimmer in it!

By Christina

from Denver, CO

Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

At first I really liked this moisturizer. It's not heavy at all but seemed to do pretty well. However I noticed after a few uses that it has shimmer in it. I am not the type to wear anything shimmery or glittery and I couldn't find anything stating it had shimmer in it which bothers me there is not a warning or advertisement that it contains some shimmer. Now its very subtle and you can't really see it unless you're about a foot away but that still bothered me enough to return it. Pretty bummed too because I liked the way it moisturized.

      Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

      So far it's working great! I am 45, have combination sensitive skin, prone to breakouts. My skin is super fussy so I end up purchasing lots of products that don't work. This product is a bit more than I want to pay but some things you just can't skimp on. I don't wear makeup so clear skin is most important to me. I have been using this product for two weeks which is usually long enough for any problems to appear. My skin is super smooth and clear, not shiny by the end of the day and no irritation or breakouts. My skin hasn't looked this good in years! If you have dryer skin it probably wouldn't be enough moisture on it's own in winter, I put a little extra on my cheeks to avoid slight tightness. I think I have found my new favorite!

      Best Uses

      • After Shower/Bath

      Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

      I use this product to moisturize my face after I shower or wash my face in the morning. I love how smooth it is and the smell of it. It doesn't irritate my skin and makes my skin feel smooth and not greasy or oily. However, I find myself using more product than I'd like to to get my face feeling moisturized enough. I can tell if I haven't used enough because my face feels tight like I can't form facial expressions. If my skin wasn't so combination-dry, I would love to buy this product over and over again. I'll try again in the summer time.

      My Favorite Moisturizer Ever!

        Best Uses

        • Daily moisturizer

        Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

        I've had lots of trouble finding the right moisturizer because I battle acne. Usually a moisturizer either causes me to break out, or isn't enough to keep my skin from drying out after I appy my daily acne treatment. This has been the answer to my prayers! I'm on my 3rd jar. It's light, fresh, and does exactly what I need it to - provide moisture without causing any other problems. I'm so glad I found it!

          Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

          This product was introduced to me by a Philosophy rep at Ulta, at first I admit I thought she was like everyother sales asso selling me a overpriced product that wouldn't work. However, due to the condition my face was at the time I took a chance and purchased the product. Needless to say, I am beyond satisfied with this cream and my face has a more youth and smooth appearance.

            I wanted a moisturizer that wasn't too heavy, and this one definitely fits the bill! I've used moisturizers before that made my oily skin worse, but that hasn't been the case w/this selection. Glad I chose this one! Am curious to see how it will do this winter....

                Comments about Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream:

                I love this moisturizer. Not much more I can say!I switched from Hope in a Jar to this because it is much more gentle on my acne-prone skin. It calms my skin down instantly. As some other reviews have mentioned, it goes on very smoothly. Today I tried it under my Bare Minerals foundation without a primer and it worked seamlessly! I love Philosophy and will be a forever customer! I have a dewy glow now and my skin is clearing up so quickly I can't believe it. I haven't had soft, luminous skin like this since I was 10 years old due to acne, I am now 22 and overjoyed!
