Absolutely my go to for the foreseeable future! I love this product and I am completely obsessed. It is so lightweight and doesn't weight down on my skin. I use in the morning before makeup, and at night after I wash my face. Love the scent & texture of this moisturizer.

This product is an excellent, This product works very well on areas where wrinkles are forming and also on areas of dryness. It is a bit greasy feeling so if you have oily skin, I would skip this. It's a bit pricey, but overall I like it.

This product is expensive and kind of small, but it really does the trick. I got a sample of this product and had to purchase the full size. I have really dry skin and this smooths my face over to the point it's ready for makeup.

I remember when I bought this product; the sales associate said it was like "a drink of water for my face." I rolled my eyes and took it home and used it...She was RIGHT. I can't describe how moisturizing this cream is but it really feels like I'm putting a thick water on my face. The smell isn't that great but not foul, and the thick consistency does not require much product to cover my face and decolletage. I use this moisturizer in the am after cleansing my face and also in the evening and it's just a great cream to keep dry skin supple and soft. I had my husband try some and he used my whole jar!! He has always dealt with acneic skin and after using it for about a month his skin is looking clear! It's definitely safe for men as it has a neutral smell (not too feminine) and is safe for all skin types. Highly recommend trying it at least once if you need moisture!

I love the smell of this stuff and my face feels so soft after use.  I received the sample size of this as a bonus for one of my purchases at Ulta and I'm so glad I did.  The size was perfect to sample a few times and fall in love. :)

This concert is so light on the skin and leaves such a sweet glow. The packaging is really nice and simple and even after one use, my skin felt so supple. It is so gentle however, I wish it came with more product and was cheaper.

I am so in love with this moisturizer! I've used it for a solid year and it has completely changed my skin. I used to suffer from super dry, flaking skin and now I finally feel like I have healthy base. I recommend for everyone!

How has this really helped your skin, if at all? Is it worth the sticker price?
