Keeps the flakes away


After moving from Dallas to NYC, I've had to figure out how to adjust my skin to the winter up here. Because I use BHA and .5% retinol every night, my skin can get a little dry. Even when using a lighter moisturizer than this plus the moisture renewal oil booster, my skin would feel tight in the morning. Adding this moisturizer tips the scales, and my skin is perfectly moisturized. It is heavy, but that's a good thing for me. Plus the peptides and antioxidants are visibly helping my skin. Love it.

Have acne rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis which is especially bad during the dry winter months. Using two prescription medications but was still experiencing considerable flaking. This is the only product I've found that completely stopped the dryness and flaking. Makeup goes on beautifully after application of this fantastic moisturizer. Can't live without it!




Great for my sensitive skin / rosacea


I first started using this moisturizer about 2 years ago when I was looking for something to help / not irritate my mild-moderate rosacea. My cheeks were quite red, a bit flaky, bumpy, and prone to occasional episodes of burning sensation. I tried many moisturizers that simply didn't feel good at all. While I wouldn't say this one improved my rosacea, it certainly didn't irritate it further. (I highly recommend the Vitamin C serum as I do feel that had a significant impact on my rosacea). I've been using this for 2 years and I have no desire to look for any other moisturizer - this, combined with the serum, has given me overall healthier, better, smoother skin than I had 2 years ago. I should say, I also tried the Moisture Boost moisturizer and definitely prefer this one. The Moisture Boost didn't feel as good on my skin and wasn't a thick/rich enough moisturizer in comparison. I'm ok using that one as a hand/body cream, but I needed something richer for my face. It absorbs in pretty quickly and makeup goes on fine over it (I do use primer, too).

love this product ! needs better packaging


I've been using this product for about 3 years and it's never steered me wrong, even when i had super acne prone skin ! I wanna suggest maybe having a pump for the product to get the most out of it. And, so I can scrape off what's left when needed lol !

Didn't Clog My Pores


Very nice feeling moisturizer that surprisingly did not clog my pores. I'd buy again if I could get it in front of me but I wouldn't purchase it online as shipping is really long for some reason.

Love it!


I purchased this a few months ago and have been using it once a day at night after applying the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA exfoliator (I use Olay gentle clean foaming cleanser morning and night, followed by aczone topical acne treatment and an olay moisturizer with sunscreen in the morning). This combination of BHA and moisturizer has made a huge difference in the tone and texture of my skin. For the past several years, since moving home to the oppressive Florida heat and humidity, I have really struggled with constant breakouts (big red painful ones across my chin especially). At baseline, I have very fair, extremely sensitive, easily irritated skin--and now it also breaks out, seemingly at the drop of a hat. I've tried several OTC and rx acne products over the years, with varying success, but it has been very difficult to find any product that would consistently help without either causing more breakouts or worsening my redness/making me peel. From practically first use, these two products have soothed my skin and noticeably improved my breakouts (I still break out here and there but spots are much smaller and heal much more quickly). My skin looks even and glow-y. The first time I used this moisturizer, I was worried that the texture was too thick and might cause breakouts or clog my pores - but the exact opposite happened. Once applied, it feels very light (but very moisturizing) on the skin. Doesn't have much of a smell to speak of, which is great. The texture feels maybe a little greasy, but I apply at night so that's not as much of a concern, and I keep waking up with a smooth, clear complexion, so it seems like it's working without causing problems. And that's what matters to me :)




So happy I found you!


This stiff really helped my skin! I could tell the difference immediately! I tried so many products. Not anymore! My search is over! I have super dry sensitive skin because of medication. I was skeptical but am so glad I bought this!




I got the Vitamin C glow


I am a 36 yr old redhead with dry, sensitive face loves this stuff. Great prices, rivals its competitors, and gives me that Vitamin C glow!! You do have to be careful where you store this, remember its supposed to be kept in a cool, dark area. The first time I ordered this, it lasted my 2 months, only because I kept it upstairs where it is not necessarily cool at all times. The next time it lasted me 3 months because I left it in the fridge--really worked out for me. 3 months is more than sufficient time to use.I tend to use it really in 2 months because I apply it directly to my face, which uses up more of the product.

My favorite for my sensitive dry skin


I just came online to purchase my re-stock of this amazing lotion and found it to be out of stock. I certainly hope it will come back soon, because I can't live without this stuff.




The Best for My Super-Sensitive Skin


This has been my go-to moisturizer for years. It's not fancy, but neither does it irritate my hyper-sensitive skin. Keeps my skin from drying out, even in winter while not clogging my pores. I use it morning under mineral sunscreen (PC Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense, which I also love) and nights over either the 2% BHA gel or the new Resist Advanced Smoothing 10% AHA exfoliants.
