Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars
So I have been looking for a new moisturizer for a while, but I honestly couldn't tell you what possessed me to buy this other than the product making me think about the song "Edelweiss" from The Sound of Music. I am very picky about what I put on my skin because I have extremely sensitive skin that gets red and irritated just by looking at it in the morning, let alone trying new products. Anyways, I ordered and received this little (but definitely a decent amount given how much product is being use) glass jar and gave it a try. I FELL IN LOVE!! After my first application I was very pleasantly surprised so I kept with it for a week. Then two. And now here I am, a month plus deep, and my skin is glowing. It's so soft and it does not cause any irritation whatsoever. It's rich yet light weight, and sinks in beautifully. Don't sleep on this!! Or you know, do if you want to wear it at night. But get this!!!!
TLDR; great product, does what it says. Sensitive skin approved (by me at least)
It took me years to find a moisturizer that agreed with my crazy skin and that was the drops of youth cream. That cream was such a perfect texture...almost no scent, absorbed right in and most of all did not irritate me or cause breakouts. I receive samples of this new cream only to find out this has replaced that. My first thought was ok maybe it's better. First off the smell is weird and there's nothing worse than disliking a face cream scent and then still having to smell it an hour later. The texture I can only describe as feeling like heavy silicones and it just feels like applying a light waxy substance that doesn't fully absorb. The product contains a lot of shea butter which normally clogs my pores like crazy so we'll see what happens with that but as of right now I can't use this product because I can't get past the smell and feel if it. Please bring back the drops of youth cream! You can't say this product is an improved version if it's nothing like the other product. It will now take me years again to find a replacement as good as that cream. I want to wash this off my face as soon as I put it on. So so disappointed.

I have noticed that my face seems to be getting dryer as I get older. So have been using this and so far it has helped as long as I remember to reapply.

Feels good on your face. Not heavy or greasy

Smooth and non-sticky, I like this face cream for night-time use. I garden in New Hampshire where May brings happy digging, and also 4 weeks of constant biting from the area's black flies. It is my strong impression that Edelweiss cream helps with healing the bites much faster around my face and neck.

Thick cream, slightly greasy feeling at first but feels fine later. Likening this cream so far.

Very soothing to put on. And stays smooth all day.

I used the drops of youth cream for years. I had terrible hormonal acne from pcos that worsened with birth control. I found the drops of youth cream and finally was able to significantly improve my acne. I ran out and had to try the new edelweiss cream and my acne started coming back. I tried it for a month and my face looks horrible. I stopped using it for about 3 days now and my face is finally cleaning up even though it's my time of the month. If you struggle with acne, cystic or hormonal acne, don't use this product. I'm so disappointed they stopped making the drops of youth cream. That product was the best. This edelweiss cream is nothing like drops of youth. The texture is like a thick cream and the smell is not great. My face feels great yet dry after. This product is not it! Bring back drops of youth please!

I have sensitive, combo skin that is prone to redness and acne. I've been using the Edelweiss Bouncy Night Mask, and I've been loving it. So, I thought I'd give this Intense Smoothing Day Cream a shot. I used it for about a week. So, it definitely made my skin smooth, hydrated and actually incredibly even-toned and way less red... in certain areas. Other areas, not so much. I broke out on my cheeks and between my eyebrows mainly which was a bit unusual for my pattern of breakouts (usually nose and chin). Maybe it was just skin purging? I don't know. It made my t-zone slightly oily but I didn't break out in those areas. So, I stopped using it and those breakouts are clearing up. I know it's not described as non-comedogenic but I thought I'd take a chance anyway. I would really love if The Body Shop tested more for comedogenicity. And whatever they're doing with the Bouncy Night Mask - maybe if they made a similar day cream, I'd be all over it.

Makes my skin feel so smooth and look
Hydrated. Just a pea size amount needed. The his coupled with the Edelweiss serum have really changed the look of my skin!

This cream is so beautiful! It smells wonderful and moisturizes as well as much more expensive creams. I found it sinks into my skin well. I have combination skin so I use this only at night. I wake up in the morning with supple, smooth, soft skin.

I am really enjoying this smoothing cream! I use just a little bit and my face is moisturized all day without feeling greasy. No breakouts or clogged pores either. My makeup glides over it perfectly!
Neeley from Indiana
I absolutely love how this feels on my skin. It helps so much with my dry spots and feels perfect under my makeup.

Perfect replacement for the Drops of Youth night mask. Day cream is great, too! It is so hard to find new product, and I wish I had seen this sooner and started here.

Hands down the best moisturizer I've every used. I'm a POC with very dry, eczema-prone, and sensitive skin. A small amount goes a long way and lasts all day. I don't wear makeup most days and this gives my skin a wonderful glow that isn't greasy or overly dewy.
More importantly, this line has eliminated my eczema entirely and greatly improved the overall texture of my face in a month.
I have seen the light.

This product works better than anything else I have found at reducing crepey skin on my neck! It is an absolute must have for me!! The all natural ingredients is also a plus!!

The jar of Edelweiss gel was much smaller than the one I had ordered previously for the same price. So, I will no longer be ordering this product as the amount of product is not worth the cost.

I really like this moisturizer. It's the perfect cream texture without feeling too heaving on the skin. It also works well with my makeup. However it's not something I can't find in a cheaper product. I would still encourage giving this product a try.
MrsWhite from Northern Colorado
I'm super low key with any regimen so this purchase was outside of my realm of knowledge. Decided to pair it with another product of same line and it seems to be doing quite well.

Awful. Smells bad, feels bad. Could I please return it?
Morgan from Seattle, Wa
Saw some reviews on this product and I'm always trying to find a super hydrating moisturizer, either this or another cream I tried at the time or maybe the mixture caused bad irritation patches on my face. I tried each alone as well and this did not hydrate enough, I don't recommend

Goes on so smooth and the moisture stays on my face. Very happy with this product.
Errica from Michigan
So happy with this moisturizer. My skin has never felt better.
Steph vale from Florida
Love this product !! Made my feels very smooth not to oily or dry it's perfect . I use it every morning before I do my regular make up routine. I always used drops of youth and switching to this was not much difference all though I think I like this a little more!

This day cream is the best I've found for my dry skin.
