Most Helpful Positive Review Best moisturizer cream!
I've tried lots of American and K-beauty lotions and creams for my intense dry dehydrated facial skin and nothing has helped (including the K-beauty 7 step hyaluronic acid toner, and skincare steps) and lotions as well! I bought this because my skin was super dehydrated after an awful hormonal breakout that I had. I used so much anti-acne products that my skin now is dry and dehydrated. I also have super sensitive and acne prone skin as well. This product is AMAZING for dry skin! A little goes a long way. When you first apply it, it can feel a bit oily/greasy but once it dries up, that feeling goes away. This product does not break me out. Because I have super dry skin, it works for both summer and winter. Otherwise, I would recommend buying only for the colder/winter months If you have dry skin in the winter.
Most Helpful Critical Review Hydrating but not good under makeup
I needed a new moisturizer for the cooler months and wanted to give this a try. It was hydrating, great texture, and did not break me out. However, on several occasions, it affected my foundation when I applied it on top of this moisturizer. It made weird splotches on my face and the only thing that was different in my routine was this moisturizer, so I am not sure why this is happening.

it takes a little long to fully absorb but it's so so so moisturizing! i think it could also work as an overnight mask if you put a thick layer
Ari from Indy
I absolutely love this stuff. I have combination skin, and my forehead and undereyes get incredibly dry and flaky while the rest of my face is kind of oily. I slather this on my forehead and undereyes at night and put just a thin layer everywhere else, and I wake up feeling smooth and puffy (in a good way, like that natural glow you get after a long cry and your skin is thick and moistened). I love the way it feels.

Great moisturizer for sensitive skin
K from North Carolina
Great texture, goes in really well and absorbs quickly. Needed something calming and moisturizing without a ton of ingredients that may irritate my already inflamed skin. This did the trick & I will continue to use it day and night. I didn't find it too heavy for day use or to light weight for night use but I also usually use the Biossance Squalene oil at night. This is a great product so far I'm very pleased, especially for the cost- similar feel to the Clinique moisture surge but less than half the price and my skin can't tell a difference.
An isolated problem?
Dlopez from Corona
Initially I was happy how the cream would soak into my dry skin not leaving a oily residue. After several applications my skin wasn't as dry. My make up went on smoother. After a week of using the cream the paint inside the inner lid was chipping off into my cream. Concern with what ingredient is causing this, and that I'm using it on my face.
Great for nighttime routine
Ashley from Santa Cruz, CA
I use this for my nighttime routine, as it's way too heavy for wearing under makeup. I wouldn't say it soaks in quickly, but I like that for the evening. I have acne-prone skin and haven't had any reaction even though this moisturizer is a little heavier than what I'm used to. A very little bit goes a long way, so I could see this lasting a long time.
My Holy Grail Cream
Alexaaa from St. Louis, MO
I tend to have flaky, red, and dry skin especially around my noise. This has been the only moisturizer that I've used that has truly calmed down my skin, gotten rid of flakes, and made my skin feeling hydrated, youthful, and elastic. At first it has more of a sticky consistency; but I don't mind it and after I give it time it absorbs well into my skin. Every time I've attempted to switch to another moisturizer - I ALWAYS come back to this one because it has done wonders for my skin.
Great for dehydrated skin
Keplynnxx from Spokane, WA
I have dry skin and I'll say that I dont think this would be good alone for dry skin. I do have to layer it but I am loving it so far. Feels amazing, you get a lot for the price. It kind of reminds me of neutrogena hydroboost but this is a better value. I like to spray my face with LRP thermal water, apply this, spray again and then apply my moisturizer over top to seal it all in.
you absolutely need this
Hannah B from Minnesota
if you want to maintain your hydrated skin or pamper your dry skin back to health then you NEED this. I use this after I wash my face or after a shower when my skin is still steamy. I haven't had dry skin since using this product!

Great texture & moisturization!
Try it as a leave on mask!
lauren from California
I've found this cream to be a bit too slippery to use before makeup (unless of course you have extremely dry skin). However, it works wonders as a mask! I apply a generous amount on my face about 3 times a week and allow the product to absorb into my skin throughout the day, and by the time I take off the excess, my skin is amazingly soft! I have dry skin, but I wouldn't say it is extremely dry, and this product has never given me any breakouts or irritation. But as always, like with any product, spot test this on a small section of skin before applying to your entire face! Overall great product that has definitely improved the glow of my natural skin!

Horrible flaming packaging
Lauren from Dallas
I love the moisturizing nature and texture of the cream, but I am surprised no one has mentioned the horrible packaging that ruined this product for me. The black paint on the lid flakes off into the product. I tried my best to keep the product from touching the lid but I travel a lot so it gets shaked around. I'll be applying and realize there are black metal flakes from the lid on my skin. Yuck.
If used right works great
Libra beauty 619 from CA
This made my skin so soft. Put this cream on wet skin. Then put a more occlusive moisturizer on top. Your skin will feel so super soft after. Works great.
Christy from Monroe, NC
I apply this product before bed and my skin is amazing in the morning!
Good moisturizer, but greasy feel
Kay from Las Vegas
This product is great, but it just doesn't absorb well into my skin. I used it for a couple months and still have almost the whole container left. It is very heavy so I would only apply a little bit to my face, which seemed to work fine, but even with that much there is a greasy feeling that lasts throughout the day that eventually led me to move onto a lighter moisturizer.
Shel from IN
I have been using this product for one week. It is hot and humid (July in KY) and may be a bit intense for summer month moisturizing. A lot of reviews recommend this for winter and it is probably best for those months. That being said, I will continue to use at night year round as it is not too heavy nor greasy overnight for my skin. I wake up and my skin is plump and dewy- fine lines are noticeably diminished. My skin is combo- not acne prone except my T zone at times.
Sucked the life out of my skin
Jennifer from Florida
I am rehabilitating my skin after a couple of years of using dermalogica age smart aged my eye area about 20+ years (yeah, stay the heck away from dermalogica). I switched to an oil cleanser and started using cetaphil temporarily and my skin immediately started recovering. I knew I couldn't keep using cetaphil because of the bad ingredients so I switched to this and within minutes of putting this on my skin, it sucked all the moisture out and I am back to looking like my eyes belong to a 55 year old instead of a 35 year old. (I also used the snail mucin line of COSRX's products the same day).
Perfect for plumping skin
LesleeKY from Louisville, KY
I typically buy my hyaluronic acid and a serum. After reading a lot of reviews I decided to give this formula a try. I have noticed that my skin is much plumper and feels hydrated throughout the day. You do not need a lot of this if you over do it it will feel greasy but if you only use a small amount you will feel very hydrated without the greasy feel. Make sure you don't forget your neck! This has done great on my fine lines and wrinkles. I am 49 and I've tried very expensive products, similar to this in the past, but this one I've noticed some great changes in the month and a half that I have been using it!
miracle in a jar
Traci from Indiana
THE BEST CREAM EVER MADE I have used everything under the sun and this beats them all I will repurchase again and again
Love this moisturizer
Heather from Seattle
I have tried so many moisturizers but my skin never feels truly moisturized until this product. It actually makes my skin stop feeling tight and dry the instant I put it on at night. Wake up with moisturized skin!!
Amazing for dry, sensitive (eczema-prone) skin!
AJC from Arlington, VA
I was suffering through an allergic reaction and had to stop using all skin care products for about 2 months, because my face would react to everything! Those 2 months were a nightmare. I constantly suffered through dry skin, occasional flare-ups and sometimes my skin felt a burning sensation.
The dermatologist couldn't figure out whether it was eczema or psoriasis.
Before I found this product, my saving grace was Tarte's Maracuja. While it's an oil, it was sufficient enough. I'd still wake up with dry flaky skin. Then, my derm gave me a list of eczema safe products, and noticed that the common denominator was hyaluronic and ceramide.
My skin always fared well with K-products, so I ordered this and the Cosrx Honey Ceramide cream. My skin still reacted to the ceramide cream. However, this product saved me! My skin stopped flaring up and I woke up with a non-flaky skin.
So to anyone who suffers through eczema or has super sensitive skin, I highly recommend this! I just wish I'd found it sooner!
Love this product!
Pratha from TX
I was looking for a light, daily moisturizer and LOVE this one. It is good for normal skin that needs some hydration and moisture. A little goes a very long way for daytime use and it's easy to build to use for a night cream as well. It also has 0 perfume or fragrance and has NO smell, not even that fake "no smell but really smells like chemicals" smell. The price is also very good for the amount you get. The tub is full to the brim. I also live in a very humid climate and it still doesn't feel greasy on my skin.
angel from escondido
best moisturizer. highly recommended
Very very greasy
Mina from USA
This product was ok. I read a lot about hyaluronic acid and wanted to give it a try. I found that this product was EXTREMELY greasy and doesn't seem to want to absorb into my skin. A little goes go a long way though, so props for that. And it is unscented so it's good for sensitive skin. However, due to how thick and greasy it is I had to use it as a nigh cream instead of a day cream. I will finish this container, but probably won't be buying again.
