Literally an oasis for my terribly *oily* (but sensitive) skin. i got this as a sample at Sephora and the scent definitely won me over (along with its effectiveness). I have never found a face moisturizer quite like this. I suffer from constant breakouts (on top of hormonal cystic acne, yay), but this stuff somehow magically leaves my skin soft and not oily- and it doesn't take much to cover my whole face and neck. Just about a nickle size can cover most of my face. It's especially great to use right after your evening (or morning) shower. It is a bit pricey, in my opinion, but all other facial moisturizer (even Shiseido) have made my breakouts even worse. For reference, I use this in combination with Exuviance antibacterial cleanser (during my cystic-acne breakouts) & Belif's Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist.

I've been using a generous sample of this that I received as a bonus and I know that as soon as I run out I will be buying the full size product. I really didn't even intend to use the sample, but I went to an event at Macy's where I received a mini facial from a Clinique representative and she used this product on my face. I knew right away that this was AMAZING. This winter I am experiencing dryer areas on my face and this is literally the only thing that I have found that feels this amazing on my face. The only way I can really describe it is that when you have this on, its like water is on your face but it's not dripping. I know that sounds bizarre, but you really must try this to appreciate it. I use this at night and it is just EXTREMELY calming and relaxing to have on. Before I had tried this I would have never thought to pay this much for a product like this, but I can definitely say that it is entirely worth it.

I am so glad I tried this product! It seemed a little pricey for a drugstore face product, but I have come to use this in place of my Clinique Moisture Surge (which I also love); this product seems to do a similar job (maybe just slightly less moisturizing), but for a lot less money. I have sensitive combo-dry skin, and this hasn't made my skin react at all. I wear this day and night, using it to lock in moisture both after I wash up at night (under another moisturizing lotion) and before I start my makeup routine in the morning (as a primer or before my primer); it is very similar in color and consistency to Smashbox's hydrating (blue) primer. It's very cooling and refreshing during the summer too and quite light, so you can use it year-round. It is also not tacky. I suggest using a makeup spatula if you have one to scoop out the product for each use in order to keep it a bit more hygienic. Try to use coupons or get it when it's on sale to help with the cost.

First, I'd like to point out that I have extremely dry and sensitive skin. I have tried way too many moisturizers that I ended up having to either throw away or give them to someone else because they either were not moisturizing enough for me, or they broke me out. But this one is the best thing ever. I redeemed my beauty points from Sephora for this, and now I'm in love. Very moisturizing, does not clog my pores, is not greasy or oily, and it doesn't break me out! I'm in love! I totally recommend this. I know it's expensive compared to drugstore moisturizers, but if you're like me and none have worked for you, you should at least ask for a sample if they offer any. I'm totally buying this when I run out of my sample-sized one.

So far I really like this product! I received it for free to try, and even though I've only used it a handful of times, it feels so good on the skin. It's super moisturizing and not overly thick like most facial creams are. At first it feels heavy on the skin, but after really massaging it into the skin and waiting a few minutes, there's no more residue, like it completely soaks into the skin. Also, I have SUPER acne prone skin. It is very hard to find a facial cream that doesn't cause me to break out by the end of the night. After using this product as much as I did, and still no new pimples, I have to say this is one of the better facial creams I've tried.

The first time I tried this gel cream I fell in love! It has such an amazing texture after application, almost as if you can feel the moisture being trapped in your skin. Within a minute the gel dissipates into a silky soft feeling on the skin without losing the feeling that you have a layer of gel covering the skins surface. It has a light very pleasant fragrance and a cooling feeling on the skin. Upon waking in the morning you can still feel the effects of this gel/cream and boy does it lock in moisture!! I initially purchased the trial set for $30 at Target when I learned that I could finally get this stellar Korean beauty product domestically. I am glad to see products like this popping up and hope to continue to see this trend! Go and try for yourself you won't be sorry!
