So I have to tell a story for you to understand why I LOVE this product so much!

I've always thought I have had oily/ combination skin for my entire life. I have been very light handed when applying any kind of moisturizer, or oil to my skin just because I didn't want to end up oily.

It wasn't until recently that I found out that I was completely wrong with my thoughts on my skin. While getting a facial I was informed that my skin was so dry that the reason I thought it was "oily" was because it was desperately trying to create some moisture on it's own. My skin used three times the amount of moisturizer that she had ever applied to anyone of her clients. I was serious amazed, shocked, and surprised. The esthetician suggested I get a moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid in it. In doing research, this product was new but it had that ingredient in it that I needed more of.

I went out on a limb, mostly because I love Tarte products, and I bought that new cleansing gel and the Drink of H2O hydrating gel.

THIS HAS SERIOUSLY CHANGED MY SKIN!

It's definitely not the average moisturizer at all. It's a gel, almost sticky but not it a bad way, that you apply evenly to your skin. Since my skin is so dry (now that I understand that it really is dry) this product soaks in so wonderfully and evenly hydrates my skin.

My boyfriend also uses this, along with the cleanser like I do, and he has also taken a liking to it.

I highly recommend this to anyone with dry skin, or anyone who is looking to get a great refreshing moisturizer.

I do also recommend pairing it with the cleansing gel for the greatest skin results.

This Is perfect! I've had severely dry skin on my face from some acne treatments I was prescribed. I tried several different moisturizers but none really did the trick. I saw this in a sample pack and thought I'd try it because nothing else was working. within 3 days of using this I could tell my skin was already improving, and now after almost a month of use my skin is completely back to normal. Be careful not to use too much product or your face will feel sticky, a little really goes a long way. I will definitely be purchasing the full size soon!

I got this as a sample size on a whim and I'm so glad I did. This is now my favorite moisturizer and I've already purchased a full size container of it. It's a gel instead of a cream and it feels really cooling on the skin. It absorbs quickly and a little goes a long way. The full size is about $40 which is a pretty steep price tag but you do get a lot of product in the jar. Ever since I started using it, my skin has been a lot more moisturized and smoother and I have fewer flaky dry patches. I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out.

I have loved all Tarte products I've tried in the past, so I decided to get the Rainforest of the Sea travel set which included the cleansing gel, Marine Boosting 4 in 1, H2O Hydrating Boost and the gel eye treatment pads...two words...simply amazing! THIS HAS SERIOUSLY CHANGED MY SKIN! It's definitely not the average moisturizer at all. It's a gel that soaks in so wonderfully and evenly hydrates my skin. I highly recommend this to anyone with dry skin, or anyone who is looking to get a great refreshing moisturizer.

I wish I would have returned this. I had high hopes because I love this brand and many different kinds of products they offer. Because of the hyaluronic acid this is actually the reverse of hydrating. I feel that it is very drying and uncomfortable on the skin. You do get a fair amount of product in the package and the tub makes it easy to get to all the moisturizer which is good. But I would not recommend or repurchase and I will not use all of mine. I will stick with other moisturizers I've tried.

I use this product every day before applying my makeup. I love the smell of the product and it leaves my skin feeling soft. I have normal to dry skin but with the harsh winter weather, my skin gets very dry this time of the year. For that reason, I wish the product did a bit more at providing moisture. I like that it doesn't make my skin feel greasy, but I still feel like I could use something a bit more moisturizing. I'm excited to see how the product works in the summer when my skin isn't so dry.

I didn't think this was the most amazing product ever. It could have been a lot better. It was unscented which is great for sensitive skin and did feel refreshing on the skin (so the name is appropriate for this product; definitely feels hydrating). However, I wouldn't say this is life changing nor worth the money. I think there are better products out there. But if you want something to just touch up your face when you're out in the heat, this might be a good option for you

Thank god I got a deluxe sample of this and didn't spend the money because it just does not work for me. This moisurizer not only did NOT moisturize my skin, but the product also left my skin feeling sticky and scaley, and even made me break out. I know it works wonders for other people, but I did notice that my problem was the exact same as the few negative reviewers. Definitely try a sample of this product before purchasing, since it seems to have two opposite effects.

I use this mostly as a night cream to hydrate my skin before bed and it works amazingly! I love the consistency and how fast it settles into my skin. The packaging is gorgeous as well. However I just see this as another moisturizer not really something that wowed me, I would not be repurchasing it because of how pricey it is. I got this in the $10 rainforest of the sea skin set which had the setting spray, this, and the cleanser.

Does this work for pretty dry skin? My skin is pretty dry and I have a hard time finding moisturizers that are hydrating enough.
