  • "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 have oily skin type and this was not very good for that type to me...It is very moisturizing but also left an oily feel which I did not like. I do recommend for normal to dry skin types!

This product helps moisturize my face without leaving it feeling oily or greasy; it leaves my skin looking youthful and radiant. My only complaint is that I'm not crazy about the scent.

I buy this for my mother every year. She uses it every night to keep her skin nice and moisturized. It's a great product, gets rid of dry skin and doesn't cause breakouts or irritation.

I have a large kit of Philosophy products and this came with it. I use the moisturizer daily and it's perfect for my combo/oily skin. It's lightweight, and really makes my skin feel smooth. It doesn't have an obtrusive smell either, highly recommend.

I feel like this did not work at all. It's a very watered down lotion and did not meet my expectations at all. I was told it could help with seasonal dryness and redness and that was really not the case.

I bought this awhile back after reading all the hype about it and it broke me out so incredibly bad. I had no idea I had sensitive skin before this happened. Definitely no good for me.

This did not work fr my oily skin. It made my skin even more oily than normal, and aggravated my acne. I gave this product only one star because or the smell. This stuff smells aweful.

I've been using this product for years. It's a great, simple, and easy-on-your-skin moisturizer. It is best for someone hoping to have preventative skin care in terms of anti-aging.
