Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE!!!!!!
People rave about this moisturizer and that moisturizer. Everyone always says Hope in a Jar is the best moisturizer but I hated it. It smelled and didn't moisturize at all. I had always wanted THIS moisturizer though- but it was so expensive I could never afford it. FInally I took the plunge and I LOVE it!!! It is my holy grail product now. Gels that lightly moisturize do nothing for me. Heavy creams with too many oils turn me into an oil slick. This actually plumps up my lines and makes me feel like I have pantyhose on my face all day. (I like that feeling- since my skin is starting to sag after losing weight). I just ran out and can't afford it again until after Christmas but I will buy this forever now. Sooooo good!
Most Helpful Critical Review I did not like this moisturizer
I love the thickness of this moisturizer, but as soon as I put a light foundation over it, it pills all over my skin. I had to use a large brush to get all the white stuff off my face. I tried applying the foundation right away, I tried waiting until it was totally absorbed, nothing worked. No good!!

Love good products from South Carolina
I use as a night cream, there is no sunscreen. Love the way my skin feels I apply.
MAKES MY FACE REALLY SOFT!
Sarah from Olympia WA
I just started using this moisturizer and so far I really like it. The only con I have is that I think the amount that comes out of the pump is too ²much for your face. I end up using some of it on my hands. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I see a lot of reviewers talking about it pilling up. I did experience that the first time I used it, but once I figured out I didn't need to use the amount of product that comes out it stopped. I don't use it under my makeup, but I can see it happening. I don't think I would use it in the morning. It's too heavy. I only use it at night because it is a thick moisturizer. That's when they recommend you use it. I could see it making it tough to put your foundation on top of it if you used a whole pump. Hopefully I will continue to like it. Because it really does make my face soft.
Did not like this product
Angela from California
I was hoping to like this but I really didn't. It crumbles on your face when you apply make up over it. It made my skin really rough, like sandpaper. I would not recommend.
Sam from Florida
This is a tricky product. I agree with some of the negatives I see in reviews. But used correctly it's a great product and leaves my dry, mature skin plump and hydrated. It greatly improves a dehydrated skin barrier and leaves the skin very smooth. I use a small amount only at night. Yes, it does pill and does not play well with other products, including makeup and sunscreen. I also don't like the bluish color and the fragrance is a bit strong, but dissipates. So there are some negatives. If I use it over a serum, I press a small amount into the skin without a lot of rubbing and that works fine. I find I like it best as a night cream on it's own. I alternate it with my retinol serum and it works beautifully. I also use it during the day when I am not going to be out where I require a sunscreen. It really does make my dry skin look amazing.
Rae from California
My mom has been using this stuff for a while so I decided to give it try when I noticed my skin getting dryer. I have combination skin so I need something hydrating by not oily. After the first night using this stuff I noticed a difference. My skin was plumper and more hydrated the next day. I'm 26 and my moms in her 50's but we have very similar skin. Combo with hormonal acne every so often. This didn't break me out and has never pulled on my face like other reviews say. I'm obsessed!
I would not buy this product again.
Lisa from Nebraska
I did not like this product. Made my face feel dirty. When I'd go to put foundation on it would pill. Not a good product. Can't believe I paid that much for this product.
Not a fan
JoanCP from Nebraska
Don't care for the smell. And this item cannot be used with other products. I tried to put on sunscreen over this cream and everything (the cream sat for a good 1/2 hour) sort of beaded up. I've never had this problem with other creams.
Moxifloxi from California
Never really soaks in. I use as directed but if under my makeup it's a disaster. When I wash my face in the morning it feels like a coating of gel is rehydrated and comes off. I have not noticed any difference at all. Way overpriced for anything it promises anyhow. Will not buy again.
This product is amazing!
cg from Sacramento, CA
Love this product!
Great product! Love it
Jan from Alabama
Love this product !!
REALLY Liked this Product!
TNGIrl2019 from Huntingdon, Tennessee
Once on my clean, skin, my face was instantly soft. After a couple minutes, it felt firmer and plump as described on the tube. I'm 46-years old and it is so difficult finding a product that actually does what it claims. I got a trial tube at Ulta & I love it! It really hydrates my skin. My skin has been oily all my life, but since I hit 40, it's gradually becoming dry. Exuvience Hydra Firm truly hydrates my skin without any greasiness & lasts all day. I really like its clean smell, too! I use it as a primer under my foundation. I want to purchase this product, but it's very expensive.
Love this product
Amber from Portland OR
It's amazing for dry skin! I have very dry. And if I can't put makeup on and shower I will put this on and run out the door. I also love it for night. It smells amazing. It's cool to touch. One of my favs!! I can't wait to buy more exuviance products.my skin is soft and plump.
Too thick and made me breakout!
Valady from Winchester, VA
I loved what this product did for me overnight, smoothed, plumped, moisturized, but too thick and pilled and gave my cystic acne a cause to return. I was sad bc the anti-aging and plumping were nice.
Didn't realize it had so much color and fragrance in it :-(
CC from US
I had a severe allergic reaction to this product. I am guessing it was from the colors or fragrance. I understand the fragrance is probably to mask the smell of the peptides or other active ingredients, but I'm not sure why they decided to put so much color in it. It doesn't need to be blue-green.
Janet from Albuquerque, NM
I have to echo reviews of others when I say this product does not absorb at all, I attempted to apply makeup after using this moisturizer and I had little waxy balls on my face. Had to wash and start over. At this price point, I was very disappointed.
Worst of The Worst
Aranda from Winston Salem, NC
This is the worst product I've ever tried. I bought it on sale, thankfully. It is too thick and greasy, even using less product does not help. Then it starts peeling off your face, meaning it does not absorb well. I will not be buying this again. Personally, I think those older than me may like it as it might feel in lines and wrinkles. I some fine lines and I don't notice this product doing anything for them.
Felt like I needed to rinse my face off after applying it
Sha from Richmond, VA
It felt more like exfoliation than moisturizing. I use a Clarisonic and daily exfoliator so my skin should be exfoliated already when I put on moisturizer. As another reviewer put it, there was a lot of "pilling" on my skin after applying. That was my overall impression. My skin was soft, but there are other great moisturizers that work as well or better but don't leave me feeling like I need to rinse my face off.
Best night cream
B 62 from Illinois
As a 62 year old woman I can really see the difference on my face when I use this product. I put it on at night before I go to bed and in the morning my face is hydrated.
Anna from Las Vegas
If you touch your face after it absorbs, it peels off the face. What a joke!
Robinwg1 from Chicago, IL
I put this cream on after a hyaluronic serum, which should be no big deal. But, whoa!! I touched my skin about 2 minutes after applying the cream, and it started to pill?! I feel as though every single bit of it rolled off, because now my skin feels dry. Booooooo!!!!! It should seriously be reformulated or discontinued. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
Rebecca from Montana
I haven't been using it very long, but it does kind of form like little beads on the skin. It reminds me of some expensive lotion my mother used when I was a child back in the 70s and 80s. It was called Alberta and was the only lotion she could used due to a skin condition. This is the same color and has the same offensive scent.
Would not recommend
Jordana from Minneapolis, MN
I tried a sample size of this product, and I loved it. However, when I bought the full-sized version it would not absorb into my skin. I put it on before going to sleep, and in the morning it would still be sitting on the surface of my skin. Moreover, when I tried to rub it in, it would pill off my face. I also had severe breakouts when using this product. I love the Exuviance brand, I use many of their products and I would recommend most - but not this one.
A little goes a long way; extremely hydrating
Cassie from 41240
Very hydrating and plumping. Just a little goes a long way. Will absorb just fine if used sparingly.
Pills on face! Doesn't absorb!
Lindsey from CA
I have tried this numerous ways and no matter what I do it pills up into little balls all over my face! Even after several hours it doesn't absorb, and I will touch my face and it starts flaking off in bits.
Melody from Greenville SC
I use this every night after I take off all my makeup.
