Rated 4.56 out of 5 stars
Confession time - I get puffy. Usually after a night of drinking or lots of salty foods, which honestly during Covid quarantine, was like every night. So, although I've never really had many skin issues, I found myself searching for "caffeine" skincare because I read that it helps with constricting your blood vessels and reducing puffiness. Which led me to this moisturizer and brand.
I've been OBSESSED ever since. I LOVE this moisturizer - it's so lightweight, smells so light and refreshing (cucumber-ish, I think?). It's now my morning go-to. I still use my retinol at night, but I have to say that I look forward to this much more in the mornings. And most of all, NO MORE PUFFINESS. Thank you, Volition, for making such an amazing product! I have also bought their Snow Mushroom Water and their Dark Spot removing Oil after I fell in love with this Yaupon moisturizer. CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!
I don't know if I'm allergic to an ingredient in this product but I've been trying it out for the last month and a half and I've been experiencing breaks from my lower face… down to my neck & I've never broken out on my neck before. Also I usually don't break out. I can say it was very hydrating though

Just finished my first jar. It has a tingly fresh feeling and gives be a bright, dewy look for the day. Generally I'm a product explorer, so I'm often not a repeat user of any particular products. This stuff has earned a contined spot in my regimen.

This is one of the few products that I have ever completely used every bit of. Usually I never finish a product and move onto something else. I have combo oily/dry skin and I always flake in the winter and when seasons change. Love this!!

I started using this a few years ago and fell in love. It is the perfect nighttime moisturizer for me. I recently tried another moisturizer and have regretted it. Buying this again right now and never looking back again.

I have cery dry, incredibly sensitive skin, with many allergies. I have tried dozens of products over the years, and 95% were either too irritating to my skin, or just simply didn't work. This absolutely works! I use it alone in the spring and summer. In winter I use this nightly and add a thicker cream every other night in addition to the Yaupon tea moisturizer when my skin gets dry from the wind and snow.

Product works as described. The scent is light and pleasant. A slight tingling sensation lingers for a minute after application. Skin looks and feels firmer and bouncier. Works great for tired, dull skin. Perfect for my oily/combination skin. Not too dewy and preps the skin well for makeup. Love this!

good moisturizer, stings when first applied then it gets better, leaves a sticky feel but then that goes away too. I use alone no makeup.
Karet from New Mexico
Not great for my skin. It's not super moisturizing (may be better suited for summer time) and feels sticky on my face. I've also noticed some blemishes pop up in my chin that are unusual.
Won't buy again.

I received this in a beauty subscription box and I absolutely love it! It's almost completely gone now. It does seem to be very moisturizing, depuffing, and a little bit chemically exfoliating. I say the last one there cuz it has a slight sting to it, especially at first (it's not bad, at all) and it feels exactly like a gentle chemical exfoliater. A good amount of product comes in the container as well.
Marci from Asheville, NC
This product feels so nice when I apply it. BUT it is sticky on my skin -- the stickiness eventually goes away, but probably would be a problem if I wore makeup. Also, I have experienced some breakouts since using this -- weird for a 68 year old!
Amanda from Edgerton, WI
I purchased two of these during the 21 Days of Beauty sale and I am glad I bought two! This has become my go to moisturizer. It feels so nice on the skin. My skin drinks this up. My skin looks plump and glowing!

If skin is not dry this may be a good daytime moisturizer which also provides a hint of rosy luminosity as well.
Babs from STL
After this product dries, I do feel sufficiently moisturized. However...the sensation of the product on my fingers is almost enough to make me gag. It's like scooping cold boogers out of a jar. Yuccccch.
Yvonne from San Francisco
It is a a great moisturizer for morning routine. The light tea smell and cooling sensation wakes me up in the morning. And keep my skin moist for end of summer and fall. My skin tends to sensitive to certain ingredients and this has been doing me good. No rash or redness!
Monika from Orange County, CA
I bought this during the 21 Days of Beauty sale and I'm loving it so far. The skin absorbs pretty quickly and it has a nice cooling effect. I'd definitely buy this again.
Lolo from Maryland
I use this product as a "spa day" pick-me-up because it feels refreshing and smells great. But I wouldn't recommend this for everyday use before applying makeup unless you have very dry skin. It takes a while to absorb onto the skin. Makeup primer turns this into an oil slick. Definitely a nighttime product.

I really like this product and it doesn't cause my skin to over produce oil or dry out completely. (I have combo skin) as a bonus I really like the slight tingle that happens when I first put it on.
Lizzegrl from Metro Detroit
I first got this in a beauty box so it was a blind buy! I have very sensitive, dry skin with a tendency to get red at the drop of a hat. This product, used in combination with my serum and a thicker moisturizer is my holy grail! I just ordered 2 jars to keep on hand. I do cleanse, vitamin C serum, Yaupon Tea Moisturizer, then after that is fully absorbed, I apply my AHA moisturizer. On good skin days, I no longer need foundation! I am on my second jar of semi regular nightly application.

I never have a problem with any moisturizer but I had a horrible allergic reaction to this.
Kathi from Watertown, NY
I always warm moisturizer between fingertips for better application. This product goes on perfectly. Thin layer, doesn't feel greasy or like I have plastic mask. Fragrance is subtle, not overpowering
Sergesbabe from Holland, PA
Love Maryse and bought it thinking it would be "just okay" but wow, it really does add glow and I enjoy the tingling to wake up my skin.
Twinkie from California
I really like how this moisturizer makes my skin look and feel. There's a bit of a tacky, sticky feel when you first apply it but it only lasts for a few seconds. This stuff makes my skin glow, it hasn't looked this good in a while🙏🏼
Ken Ken from CO
Love the way it smells and makes my skin look and feel. Worth trying!
Tina from Water Valley, Mississippi
I received this in one of my monthly bags and immediately fell in love. I'm 55 and have lost that youthful glow. This moisturizer leaves my skin feeling hydrated and with a glow that I have missed. If you want a great moisturizer or a youthful glow then I suggest giving this a try!!
Tanya L from Chicago
I never leave reviews but this moisturizer deserves it! I love Maryse and was so excited to support her but this product is truly amazing. I LOVE how it makes my skin feel. It has a little bit of a cooling effect to it and I love that for the morning. It doesn't last long so using this at night isn't a problem. It goes great with other products in my skin care regimen.
