Who knew I would love a Sephora-brand skincare item so much! I received a sample size in my Sephora Play! box and totally overlooked it as a “boring” item in my box. I used it one morning before make up and was immediately drawn to the fresh scent and moisture it provided right upon application. It’s great mixed with other products and works under make up (in AM) and as a nighttime moisturizer (PM). The price is extremely reasonable for the amount of product you get and it’s very, very comparable to higher end moisturizers. In fact, I use this one over my other moisturizers most of the time.

Note: The packaging of the item is no longer what’s pictured here on Influenster. It’s an all-white opaque jar versus the clear / black lid shown here.

This is my go-to moisturizer for all day long! It perfectly hydrates my dry, sensitive skin without feeling greasy or heavy. It’s light and perfect under makeup and works great overnight to refresh my tired skin. I would definitely recommend you try this if all other moisturizers have failed you. Oh, and it’s very affordable, too!!

I have a sample of the Instant Moisture + cream hyaluronic acid booster which I assume is another version of this... the moisturizer itself feels nice on the skin, very soothing and hydrating. The scent I have a love hate relationship with because it seems to go away after a few minutes but then I get whiffs of it throughout the day and I don't like it randomly getting extra winds. I also noticed there's a little shimmer in it which I also don't always like, so I feel like this can't be an everyday moisturizer for me because of that. If there was less of a scent and no shimmer I would love it more.

Sephoras brand products can be a hit or miss. Their Instant Moisture and Cream is to die for. I have the DRYEST skin, and when I use this in the morning before makeup and then at the end of the day before bed, I feel refreshed and my skin glows. I highly reccommend this hydrator cream to anyone with extremely dry skin! It is affordable and an instant classic! 😍

Very moisturizing and leaves skin feeling refreshed, also it smells like flowers I love the scent so much it doesn’t seem overpowering! Absorbs quickly and lasts all day long (I use it for my Disney trips). Hasn’t been incompatible with any of my other products! I highly recommend. I plan on repurchasing myself!

I was looking to try a new moisturizer so I picked up a jar of this at Sephora. It comes in a pretty sturdy jar, my cat knocked it off my makeup stand a few times and it didn't break. I used the whole jar since I paid for it, but I will not buy it or use it again. The smell of this moisturizer is disgusting, it smells chemical...which is not how any beauty product should smell in my opinion. After using it for a few weeks I didn't notice any improvement in my skin.

I use this moisturizer every day after a shower at night. I usually have dry skin but since I started using this cream my skin always looks soft and healthy every morning. It has really made a difference for me.

A pretty good nice and light facial moisturizer. You can use this every day and even under your makeup for a nice hydrated base. Overall it is pretty basic there isn't anything special I have to say about it, but then again nothing to complain about either so what's to lose!

I use the instant moisturizer + cream version of this and it’s amazing. I have dry skin and it really moisturizes my skin without being heavy underneath makeup. This is definitely comparable to more expensive creams.

I have dry skin and I always saw it as a PLUS compared to having oily skin until recently I was told I need to use a moisturizer more than anyone else bc dry skin leads to more wrinkles in the future. Is this true? I found this product at a decent price. Would anyone recommend me use this product? How do I know what to use for dry skin? Is there a certain ingredient in need to look for?

This seems a little to cheap to be any good. I have quite dry skin and I like my foundation with more coverage... can anyone say if it'll work for me?
