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

      I use this product every morning after I wash my face. It's not heavy at all, not greasy, and feels very refreshing & lightweight. A little bit goes a long way. It holds very well as a base under my primer and I've noticed my makeup lasts longer than it did in comparison to a greasier moisturizer I used previously.
      Great for the summer time heat but I will undoubtedly purchase this again.

        I have tried philosophy's Miracle worker, which is also very good. I saw take a deep breath and thought I would give it a try and wasn't disappointed.

          Excellent for oily skin!

          I specifically bought it for nighttime because it doesn't have sunscreen. I mostly use it at night, but it's good for AM too.

          It goes on lightweight and absorbs quickly. I can move on to primer & foundation very soon after application.

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

            I just finished my tub of Philosophys "Back to Nurture" and decided to try another moisturizer from their line, since I loved that one so much. The Take A Deep Breath left me very underwhelmed.
            The smell is amazing and I liked the idea of the gel, rather than cream.
            However, I tried it twice a day for a week and it didn't work for me.
            I have very dry skin and it didn't moisturize to my standards. Very lightweight.
            The formula actually left my skin feeling very sticky and tacky long after it dried.
            This would probably work better for someone who doesn't want a thick or heavy cream moisturizer.

                Good multipurpose moisturizer. I original meant to use only at night because it doesn't have SPF. I ended up using in the AM too. Pleasantly surprised at how well it went on and primer/foundation looked good.

                    • Q:

                      I currently use clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel but have been unhappy with it lately. My skin feels tight and dry after use. Would you recommend this product or the Bareminerals purely nourishing moisturizer? I'm late 20's, mostly dry to normal skin with occasional hormonal breakouts. I use the bareminerals deep cleansing foam or purity made simple as cleansers.
