Most Helpful Positive Review Love this cream for my night routine
I received this in one of my summer Ipsy boxes. I was skeptical at first because it does seem rather thick and I was surprised it was a face cream. But I've been using this cream for a solid month now and I'm very impressed with the results. I don't use it during the day because the consistency is too thick and kind of greasy for me during the day. Living in Florida with high humidity, I don't need an extra layer of heavy moisturizing cream. But I use it 3/4 times a night and I have been loving the outcome. I don't have acne prone skin so I didn't experience any flare ups with the addition to my night time skin routine. I do however suffer from hyperpigmentation when I do get the occasional pimple and this has really helped to brighten and even out my skin tone. I will say it is very thick and kind of feels like Vaseline, but I don't mind having that feeling for bed. But I don't think I could feel comfortable during the day with such a heavy thick cream on my face.
Most Helpful Critical Review Does it do anything but cause acne?
While it does smell amazingly fresh, I get the worst acne! Without using the product I usually get 1-2 zits per week. With this product my face explodes. I've tried it multiple times to confirm this is what is causing it, and unfortunately it is. This might work if you have very dry skin, but it still breaks me out in my dry areas so I don't know. The worst part was my skin was still dry shortly after application. I've been using it as a hand cream just to finish it.

This burns my skin, tried more than once with the same result every time. Also caused breakouts, which is something rare for me. Don't recommend.
I've been on this for over two years, I'm shocked...
Cool Cat from Tempe, Arizona
I use this after my serums, oils, and eye creams right before my sunscreen. My skin is bright, smooth, and hydrated day and night. I'm truly so happy I found this combo that worked for me. The only thing is it is not vegan/clean but the rest of my skincare pretty much is. LOVE THIS STUFF!
Love this product
Robyn from Minnesota
This moisturizer has brightened my skin and reduced my wrinkles not to mention how soft it has made my skin.

This is my morning moisturizer
Surprised by the results
Beach baby from Chicago
I got the $22 size as a free gift with purchase. I have almost used the jar up and I am so amazed by the results. My skin is glowing and so hydrated. Personally I don't mind the smell and actually enjoy it. Noticed a difference when I stopped using it. Will repurchase the smaller one again before committing to the big size
love love love

I love this cream. It smells amazing, is a great texture and really sinks into my skin. I love that its vitamin c packed. I usually put it on at night with a few drop of their sleeping oil. I dont wake up feeling dry. It's like facial without the work!
This product works and it smells amazing

Great product.. I've used for 3 weeks and can tell a big difference in my skin appearance.. well worth the money
Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil
JLH from WA
I received this via BoxyCharm and was thrilled to try something from Sunday Riley. I have used it for about 2 weeks and like how it makes my skin feel and look. It's a very rich cream so I've been using it at night as a "sleeping mask" of sorts. It does not seem to clog my pores or make me break out and I enjoy the light scent of oranges. I think it would be a great product save for the hydrogenated veggie oil. After reading reviews, I'm disappointed to find that HVO is an ingredient and one that's close to the top of the list. HVO is well-known to be bad for your health because of trans fats. I don't want it in my food and I certainly don't want it on my skin. Sadly, I'm going to stop using it.
Not great for me
LP from TX
I received a sample of this product as a gift with purchase, and I was excited to try it since I'd heard good things about sunday riley products. Since it contains a stabilized vitamin C I wanted to try it out for daytime use; however, I strongly disliked the texture, particularly for daytime. It was too greasy, and after it dried down, it was prone to pilling, even without a sunscreen on top. I was not a fan of the orange scent, and I think this product made me more breakout-prone. It might be ok for someone else, but this was definitely not the product for me (especially at the price point). I'd rather just use my basic drugstore moisturizer -- good texture, absorbs way better, and is a much lower price

Ive tried a variety of moisturizers over the past 15 years and they ALL break me out until i tried the CEO cream. It is very moisturizing without the breakouts. Saving grace for my aging skin.
Teeps from Northern Virginia
Purchased this product to start addressing some fine lines around my eyes and mouth that I started seeing now that I'm in my 30s. Loved it. This is my second purchase. It hydrates my skin and those fine lines are gone. Has a light orange/citrus scent. This is not "anti-aging" or anything, but I feel like it's a great prevention tool. If you lay it on too thick, it feels heavy. So, I started using just a little, maybe a dime-sized amount for both my face and neck. It spreads more easily on just-washed, slightly damp skin. I use it as a night cream and wake up looking completely refreshed.
On my 3td jar!
KD from Palm Springs, CA
Use am & pm. My face drinks this up but does not feel greasy. My 26 yr daughter tried it & loved it too. A little goes a long way so it lasts a while. Gorgeous smell! On my 3rd jar!!!
no thank you
Crook from TEXAS
I like the way this stuff smells (like oranges) but it made me break out. I have extremely oily skin, and i typically have a pimple or two, but i have like 10 right now. and oddly enough it made me break out around my hairline and my lip line. i also got the tiniest white heads, which are typical for my type of acne. Not worth the money.
Works for me
Heather R from Texas
Usually vitamin c products break me out, but I gave this a try and my skin has been clearing up and looking smoother than ever! It does smell like oranges, and is a thick moisturizer, but I don't think it's greasy at all like others say. I do have very dry skin though, so my skin just soaks everything up. I have a lot of acne right now, and it's been making it look way better, I'm so happy. A little goes a long way, so to me at least, it's worth the price.
Always get a tester or travel size first, especially with vitamin A or C products. A lot of people can be sensitive to them, and it can cause breakouts or tingling if you are. I hope that helps!

greasiest moisturizer I have ever used. will not repurchase or recommend.
Ayesha from New York
Hydration is good but that's all. Similar to other hydrating creams? If you're going to spend $65 might as well get the tatcha water cream. The ingredients are not super good porous skin. I'll stick to my tatcha. Also, terrible smell. Smells like car tires.🤮
Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil
JP from Va
Why would they use hydrogenated vegetable oil?! It's one of the worst pore clogging ingredients out there! Unless you have super dry skin that NEVER gets acne, this product is a bust. Don't believe the fake reviews!
A Key Part of My Skincare Routine
phan601 from PA
I first bought the small container to try and have just bought the larger container. I have dry skin prone to redness and was hoping for anti-aging benefits as well. This cream delivers - but for myself, I've found it works best in combination with other products. I've layered it over SkinLongevity from Bare Minerals, or under Complexion Rescue Defense from BM, and it is a great complement to both products. It is a very thick cream and does take time to absorb.
I will buy this again

I got this in a Boxycharm and while I'm stunned by the price, I'm willing to pay for the incredible things this has done to my skin. My skin leans on the dry side and I had been using a different moisturizer before this that really did nothing for my skin at all except hydrate it. I decided to try this one instead of repurchasing the other one I had been using, and I noticed an immediate difference in my skin! I haven't had a single breakout since I started using this, and my skin looks so much smoother and the tone is more even. I will definitely be repurchasing this!
Love this stuff
Rachel from New York
I absolutely love this cream. It's hydrating and not oily, my skin sucks it right up. I use it with their Luna oil, good genes, and then Juno on top at night and I wake up and my skin is so soft.
Hooked for life
Pinky from Vancouver, WA
I was sent a full size jar when I was with Itsy. I had no idea of the cost until I purchased from Ulta. I can't recommend this product enough. Especially if you have dry skin that's showing signs of aging. It's feels pretty luxe on the skin and smells great.
Cam from NJ
I received this in a set I was gifted and used it for about a week before I had to stop. I have sensitive, dry, acne prone skin and it burned my skin and felt very uncomfortable. It additionally broke me out horribly and felt very greasy afterwards. I do not recommend this product.
Does not help anything
Kate from Kennesaw
Vitamin c in skin care is suppose to help even out skin tone and protect skin. This product made my skin break out, which is doing the exact opposite. So now I have marks from where my face broke out so horribly.
It is a thicker moisturizer, It didn't feel too greasy. Applied in a small amount at night. It smells very strong of oranges. But made my skin break out, won't ever use again!
Rich and creamy
Amber from Camano Is, WA
This is a rich and thick lotion, not overly heavy but a good texture if your skin is dry. Leaves a little bit of layer at first until it absorbs. I absolutely love the smell and I love using it when my skin needs a little extra moisture. I only use it once or twice a week, a little bit goes a long ways. Will keep this stocked in my make up bag for sure!
