  • "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

Great marshmallow like smell, seems like it is absorbed instantly, which I would think is a good think, I've bought this product about 3 times. I consider it effective for a hydrating skin, and seems gentle on sensitive skins, would definitely  buy again, and its a great price.

I really love the texture of this product. It’s extremely light weight and doesn’t look oily or thick on your skin. It also absorbs really well which is great for when you use it in the morning! Definitely recommend!

Love this product. I have used this for several years now and continue to recommend to everyone I can. Very gentle, does not irritate my skin and leaves my face very soft and glowy. This product is pricey when compared to drugstore but believe me it’s worth it!

I use this almost daily. On the days I don't, I use the night-time version. This is my go-to, always in my cabinet, can't live without moisturizer. It vastly reduces the redness and breakouts when used regularly with proper cleansing and if you watch sales and specials, you can get an awesome price. You don't need much, a little goes a long way!

Love love love this moisturizer! It takes very little to moisturize your whole face and neck. So you feel like your getting your money's worth. Not greasy or oily feeling. Just a great moisturizer.
