  • "This is a very good moisturizer i really don't like that my moisturizers have smells to them because sometimes the fragrances can clog up your pores but using this has really helped my skin. It protects from any environmental damages and it is very hydrating the smell is the only downside but my skin looks so dewy and it is hypoallergenic so it wont clog pores. So anyone with acne prone skin this is your match made in heaven " in 97 reviews
  • "I've been a loyal customer of philosophy for as long as I can remember. Every winter I stock up on this stuff because my face gets so dry. After a couple of uses I noticed a huge change in my face. My face was back to glowing and it wasn't dry at all...and not too oily. Its great for year round dry skin too! I use it sometimes in the summer when my face decides to lose its moisture!" in 90 reviews

I'm not the type of person that gets bothered by smells of a product. But this smells SO BAD. very chemical-y. It's very expensive and other moisturizers work just as well.

I bought this in a gift pack. I always wanted to try it. It was ok but I wouldn't purchase it again. It was very thick and it felt as if there a bit of a residue on my face. My face did feel very smooth. The smell was unpleasant.

I was contemplating whether I should purchased this or not due to the price, but after I received a sample from Sephora, I had to get it. My skin is sensitive and usually turns red - even to HYPOALLERGENIC items but this one it didn't! it made my skin smoothr after a few days and I received many compliments!

After a week of using this product I developed a rash like chemical burn on my nose. My face became red and blotchy as well with dry patches. The product itself is quite pricey.

This was just okay for me. It was moisturizing and did not break me out. However, I wouldn't say that it had a luxurious skin feel, or that it did a better job than a random drug store moisturizer. Not worth it for me.

Great product! Super light weight and left my skin feeling smooth and oh so wonderful. I find that I get a bad reaction from using other products and this product is gentle on my skin which is amazing.

One of the best skincare products I have purchased. Makes your skin look extremely healthy and youthful, gives you a "glow from inside" type of look. I strongly recommend it!

I used to swear by this cream. I really love this - everything from the simple packaging to the scent to the moisturizing effect. It was a great product for me in my teens!

I used to love this product years ago, but it had almost an oily residue. Have you ever gotten this? Maybe it was just my jar?
