Most Helpful Positive Review Helps with dry skin
I have sensitive skin with random dry patches on my face. It's a light cream that definitely leaves me feeling moisturized and helps my dry patches disappear! And my skin feels so soft, too! The smell is nice, if a little intense - but then again I'm also used to really thin, generic moisturizers that don't do much. I could see this not being great for oily skin, but it works for me!
Most Helpful Critical Review Super thick
I'm really disappointed in how this product sits on top of the skin, this product takes a lot of massaging to eat it into the skin. I am impressed with how the next morning I woke up and all the dry patches I focused on felt smooth and moisturizer.

Kayles from Portland,OR
Of note: I have very very sensitive, dry skin with an oily t zone.
Pros: It's very light in texture and smells nice
Cons: I broke out while using it (after giving a full one+ month transition period and not changing any other parts of my routine) and it didn't resolve my issues with flaking.
AW from Phoenix
I love the way this smells and feels on my face. It blends well and very lightweight. I wish there were a larger size available though.
Controls oils too!
Vanessa from Chicago
I use this in the morning and at night as a daily moisturizer and it feels very moisturizing but absorbs quickly like a light weight cream, and is not greasy at all. I've also noticed that I'm not as oily during the day. I have a super oily t-zone and I've barely had to blot my makeup at all throughout the day.
My go to night cream.
Maria from ID
This is my go to night time moisturizer. I have dry skin and I find this cream hydrating and I like that it absorbs quickly into my skin. I like the refreshing formula and the gentle fragrance/smell.
Because it absorbs quickly whenever I need extra hydration in the day time, I apply it before my daytime moisturizer with out affecting my makeup application.
Broke me out!
Kpaula from 95801
The consistency of this cream is great, but unfortunately it broke me out and somewhat irritated my skin. Instead of throwing it out, I just use it as a moisturizer under my eyes and it works just fine.
Kirs from va
This is an amazing moisturizer! I use this in the morning and at night. I apply it right after I wash my face, while my face is still wet, then let it air dry. My dermatologist gave me this tip, it helps your skin to lock in the hydration. My skin feels like baby soft, but not greasy. Also, it can be worn all day and feels super light weight. A little goes a long way too, you don't even need much product. One jar should last you a few months.
Good for dry skin
Vy from Tempe, AZ
I think if you have dry skin like me, this moisturizer is for you. It hydrates any dry patches well and makes your skin look healthy. It is a bit greasy though, so I'd recommend it for nighttime use only. It can also sting a bit when applied to flaky dry patches if you have sensitive skin.
I would purchase this product again
VJ from Wichita, KS
Good moisturizer; applied in morning and lasts all day.

It's decent, but really oily .
Great for my sensitive dry skin
EJ from KCMO
Started using this brand and cream after a friend recommended it to me. I have dry skin and wanted to take better care of my skin with a good a moisturizer that didn't break me out and actually was moisturizing, not greasy. Have been using this for about a year now as my night moisturizer. I haven't had dry patches of skin on my face since! I love this cream
Good for everyday
kcyb22 from boston,ma
I use this daily in the morning before my primer and i like it. It gives me the moisture i need without feeling greasy. On my 6th tub now.
Product is OK
Chloe C. from Lexington, Ky
This product is OK. It's good as a daily moisturizer to use in the morning since it is thin/light, but it often feels like it doesn't completely absorb. Some of the reviewers said it works well prior to application of makeup, but I find that it doesn't absorb quickly enough so it's a little greasy. The texture is more like a mix of sunscreen and moisturizer. The smell is fine, just a slight ginseng smell that some people aren't used to. Unfortunately, I haven't noticed any improvements in my skin and there has been no change in quality related to this product, so in the future I'm not sure I will repurchase - but it's an OK product.
Heavy and Broke Me Out
Katee from Nashville, TN
After washing my face, I'd put this on and let it sit for about 15 minutes before beginning my makeup. It literally would not absorb. My face felt heavy and greasy. I washed it off immediately on the 2nd or 3rd day. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt, but I just couldn't stand it. My face was so dry and this is meant for heavy moisturizing. It's heavy, alright. It caused my makeup to separate from my face, even though I use primer. My face also got really shiny throughout the day. Every time I went to the bathroom, I took a paper towel and dabbed my face. I felt so gross. I've never had that happen before. I went back to my Murad products. They are definitely worth the money and I feel bad betraying my skin like that. I'm still trying to recover my breakouts.
Kyanna from Los Angeles, CA
After my nightly skin care routine, I apply a little of this product on the tip of my finger and massage it into my skin; a little goes a long way. After one use my skin feels instantly smooth and moisterized.
I would buy this product again
Emily from Fontana,ca
I use it day and night
I will buy this again
janapp from appleton wi
I use a lot of products from this line but bought this because another reviewer said it worked well under foundation - totally right - and since I switch out my foundation depending on my needs this cream is perfect.
Wasn't sure how many stars to give.......
Erika from Cleveland, Ohio
So I bought this because I needed something cheaper to replace my Moisture Surge until I could buy another bottle of that. I had heard great things about this brand so i figured I'd give it a try. I'm currently using a retinal that absolutely dries out my face and it has done a fabulous job keeping my face from peeling, however it almost feels greasy when i put it on and IT BURNS. So overall, does it moisturize, yes. Is it worth the burn to continue using? Meh. There are other products that get the same effect (or better) without me feeling like I just put my face in an oven.
Great for flaky, dry skin!
pattycakes from bethelehem, pa
I am a makeup and skincare fanatic with extremely dry and sensitive skin and I have breakouts with a lot of products that I try. This, so far, is great! I've been looking for a good nighttime moisturizer (this may be a little bit too greasy before makeup, even with my dry skin) that is an affordable replacement for my Clinique Moisture Surge moisturizer and this has been doing the trick. I don't mind the smell, but I can see why people wouldn't like it but it really doesn't linger at all. If you're looking for a heavier moisturizer and don't want to break the bank I would give this a shot!
Autumn from GA
This product is a perfect everyday moisturizer. I use this about 10 minutes before applying makeup and after cleansing my skin at night. If you have dry skin this is perfect all year hydration! Only downfall is that it smells kinda funky, but nothing terrible!
Kasandraaa from Uvalde, Texas
Probably the best moisturizer I've ever tried. Love it.
methylparaben and propylparaben
jordo from Michigan
I bought this at ulta earlier and didn't notice this product has parabens in it, super disappointed because I've been looking for a decent moisturizer all week since 100% pure ran out of the one I wanted to purchase online, sadly to say I will be returning this product as I don't see the point of slathering something onto my face everyday that I don't think is perfectly good for my skin. It probably has other stuff in it that I don't know about that is also bad, I usually look up anything that I buy on the website EWG to make sure its no carcinogenic or mess with hormones etc but this brand wasn't on EWG. Whats the point of wasting money on skin care that's bad for you, senseless. It's 2017 I haven't the slightest clue why any brand would put parabens in their products. Who the heck makes this stuff? Get a clue. If parabens weren't that bad they wouldn't be banned in other countries you clowns (EU and Japan).
Ashley from New York
I use this literally everyday; Once in the morning and once at night. The very first day I used it, I notice most of the bumps on my face disappeared. My skin is really sensitive so I've been looking for good skin care products and this is def my #1 cream
Love this for dry skin
Anna of NOVA from Ashburn, VA
I have combination skin that is more dry in the winter and I wanted a daycream for winter (no SPF because it sometimes breaks me out). It is very moisturizing and seems to last a while. The consistency is not too thick and not too thin. And the scent is very light. I think it is a great option in the mid price range. Will purchase again.
Hayley from Saginaw, Mi
Moisturizes well but you need to rub it in more than other moisturizers.
Nikki from Knob Noster, mo
I love this moisturizer! I was using the Clinique moisture surge but didn't want to spend 50 a month for a moisturizer and I found this alternative for half the price and I love it so much more!!
