Most Helpful Positive Review For Normal to Dry Skin!
Just like it says in the description, this is for people with normal to dry skin. I actually have normal to oily skin, but I thought I'd try this when I got a sample of it. First of all, it is most definitely moisturizing, no question about that! The effects are immediate and it hydrates for the whole day! If you have dry skin, I'm sure this will work lovely on you! As for me, it looks extremely oily on my face - not good. My cheeks are super shiny and there's no way I would be able to wear foundation over this. I waited a little while to see if it would matte a bit but it didn't. A disclaimer though, this isn't a review to put this product down. I am just hoping that if any normal to dry skinned ladies are on the fence about this product, that this review will help them with their decision. On a universal note though, it smells lovely!
Most Helpful Critical Review Made my face break out like NONE OTHER!!
I bought this product because I got a sample of the eye cream, and loved it. What really had me splurge on this product was that it came with a free gift with purchase.
Anyway, this is the WORST product for my face ever. I used to use it all over my face after showering, and i noticed pimples popping up out of nowhere. No big deal, because pimples happen. Until one period of time my nose got very dry. I concentrated the moisturizer on my nose, and I must've had the worst acne Ive ever had in my entire life. No kidding, I had 4 pimples on the tip of my nose.
After that incident, i knew it was the moisturizer and not my body, stress, food, or anything.
Beware. My face isn't usually very oily, but this moisturizer does the trick with making you break out,
Reviewed by 1163 customers The only holy grail for me
KP from San Diego
I don't have a lot of products that I repurchase, but I probably have 100 jars of this stuff. I kept the jars to store my sewing notions in. I'm telling you...if you have dry dry Sahara -like skin or more mature skin and want to actually wear makeup without creasing—this is your product. It is literally my only "holy grail".
Do NOT buy
So sassy Steph from Los Angeles
Seriously do NOT buy this. It may work if you have oily skin? But I have dry skin CLEAR skin and it made me breakout so bad. I was looking for a new moisturizer and asked some girl said it was the best seller, so I bought it. Never in my life have I had breakouts like this. People give reviews and say "great" after two days, but I used it for like two months and my skin was AWFUL. as soon as I stopped using it my skin cleared up!! seriously do not buy this. I regret it.
LOVE THIS bought several times
Kim-Marie from Savannah, GA
I was starting to get wrinkles around my lips and needed something for additional moisture. This product works great, not only after a few weeks of using did it take out those wrinkles, I can still feel the moisture on my face when I go for my nightly face wash. Hate to even wash again, but I reapply and it feels great all over again
Flufinilla from PA
I LOVE this cream. I got a small jar in an ipsy glam bag and have been in love since. My face has always broken out and no matter how much I tone and exfoliate, there were always crusty bits left from break outs or new break outs cropping up and uneven looking skin tone, I feel like the pores on my cheeks are always huge... Until this cream. I seriously wish I could give before and after pictures of my face but like who takes photos of their face looking all gross?! Anyway, I just bought a new jar after a few months of cheaper options (covid has been ROUGH) and a facial gone horribly wrong - looks like someone chem burned half my face. Yeah, she was a "professional". But, no lie, FIRST DAY I noticed the red, flaky skin from my last break out was already looking better. The hyper pigment was toned down some too. It's day 4 and my skin looks amazing (compared to what it was). I know everyone's skin is different, but for me, this cream is the end all be all for beautiful skin.
The only thing that works for my dry skin!
Adrianna from Georgia, USA
I have had extremely dry skin for as long as I can remember. I first used this cream at 16 years old when Benefit offered a travel size kit of their skincare products. I fell in LOVE with it. I usually have to glob huge amounts of cream on my face and just let my skin drink it up. (Like I literally walk around with huge white globs of lotion on my face) I have tried so many "dry skin" creams over the years and nothing has worked for me like this one has. I have never had to pile it on. I'm 23 now, and I finally began investing in this cream again (the price was always off putting) and I still love it just as I did at 16. It's thick, but in my opinion isn't greasy. It absorbs in my skin really well. Obviously everyone's skin is different, but this works extremely well for me!
Good 😌 product
Clau from Arizona
Great for dry skin
Dry Skin Goodbye
FairyTroll from Oklahoma
I've tried this before and it didn't really help and it broke me out. Years later I try it again, and it has not broken me out. It has helped a ton on my dry patches, below my eyes and under my eyes and on my upper cheek. I put little extra on the dry areas, and in the morning it is all smooth. I was with Born this Way Pillow Cream, because it gave my face that "glow," but it didn't take care of my upper cheeks. I felt like it didn't help with my acne either. So, I'm gna to try this moisturizer again. I am in love with it so far.
Not for me!
Sirena10 from Palm Beach FL
I was very curious and excited to try out this moisturizer. Read reviews and even the beauty consultant recommended this product hence my skin was getting a little dry. But unfortunately this gave an allergic reaction. I'd never had this happen before and it quite scared me. I woke up in the middle of the night with my whole face and neck itching and redness all over my face. I even had to sleep with a damp towel on my face to reduce the itching. Be careful! Read the what the product is made off. I wish it worked for me hence this product has great reviews!
So far so good!
Kelli from Fort Worth TX
I bought this today and it feels great immediately after putting it on. It's a thick consistency. I just don't understand the need for fragrance in a face moisturizer. It's quite strong and I've never been sensitive to smells in products! Just a heads up to anyone sensitive to fragrance.
Love this product! My skin feels hydrated and soft!
Veronica from Temecula
I have dry skin and rosacea. So I need something that is rich and has no or to low fragrance. This product leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated ALL day! I simply love it and will keep using it and recommending it!
Georgia Mom from Marietta, GA
Idk what magic is in this moisturizer but when I wake up in the morning, my skin is dewier, clearer, smoother and brighter. It does seem greasy upon application, but give it a few minutes and you will be so happy. Yes, it has a fragrance, but I have hypersensitive skin and it's never bothered it once. Total Moisture is totally underrated!! I love it!
Always go back
Laura from CA
I used this for years and I thought I would try some other things, but after trying tacha and spent all that money, this is the best for my sensitive skin!
My nighttime facial treat
CK from Ohio
This is a little to heavy for me to wear under makeup during the day. But it is the perfect treat for my face while I'm sleeping. My skin always looks and feels good in the morning.
Sean from West Palm Beach
I love fragrance in products and this smell was great. It felt great at first. I liked what it did. Butttt after a week or so, I started breaking out all over my face which is incredibly rare because I haven't struggled with acne in years. I do not have sensitive skin. I started using it in targeted areas to see if it was the culprit and it was. The acne had gotten really bad at this point and it was quite embarrassing since no one really knows me with acne. Everything cleared up and healed within 2 weeks when I took it out of my routine. Ended up returning.
Strong perfume scent
An from CA
It's not the worst cream I've bought, but it has a heavy perfume scent and I'm looking for something more natural.
Hands down best moisturizer for dry skin
Tay from Alabama
I love this moisturizer! I have very dry skin and have tried hundreds of moisturizers in all different price ranges. This moisturizer beats the stuff even prescribed by my dermatologist. It is perfect for sensitive skin! I have repurchased this item multiple time. It is a little bit thicker, but it actually absorbs into your skin keeping you from getting oily.
This it THE BEST!!
Crystal from Texas
I have tried so many moisturizers and luckily discovered Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream!!
I absolutely am the biggest fan!!
If you have dry skin and don't want the oily appearance, I highly recommend you try this one!!
You will LOVE IT and it will become your ONLY MOISTURIZER!!
Nat from Atlanta, GA
This has been my go to moisturizer for about 4 years.I've tried a couple of other moisturizer but this has been the only one gentle enough for my redness prone skin but hydrating enough for my combination skin type. I really fell in love with this product when I got sun burn really bad for the first time last year and after one use my skin felt SOOO much better. I'll never switch moisturizers again!
causes breakouts and clogged pores
beautylover from los angeles
did not like the product. tried using 2 times a day at first, then cut down to 1. either way it made all my pores clogged and caused painful acne. after 3 weeks had to stop using. will not use again.
Madamrage from Oregon
Can't say enough about this product. A little good a long way, leaves my skin super hydrated, plump and healthy looking. It smells great and my go to, consistent moisturizer.
I love this stuff
Sha from texas
I don't fall in love with many products but this moisturizer is so smooth, it's not heavy and its hydrating. it is pricey but worth it. A little bit goes a long way.
Has way too much fragrance
Too much fragrance from New York
I'm not sure if the fragrance is what messed me up, but It made my skin burn and turn red . I really wanted it to work for me because it's a very thick moisturizer and I have very dry skin. If it's wasn't for the fragrance I think it would of been so much better.
It's a NO For Me
Dark Squirrel from Midwest
This stuff is thick. It's like a heavy moisturizer and a silicone primer in one. I'm okay with those things independently, but this felt like a mask on my face; just too much. Smell is not unpleasant, but is too strong. Couldn't get this off my face soon enough.
Mandy from New York
This worked well to reduce flakiness of my dry skin but I found it to be way too greasy. Switched to Cerave- had similar results without the greasiness, and way less expensive.
Gabrielle from California
I LOVE this product. The consistency is thick and lasts a long time, it makes my dry skin feel amazing after getting out of the shower. When I wear make up my skin usually looks flakey, but since using this moisturizer my skin is improving.
