Waterfall Glacier Water Cream by Saturday Skin

"SATURDAY SKIN Waterfall Glacier Water Cream is labeled as a cream, although it has a more gel-like formulaion. I would imagine it would work well for most skin types, as it provides added hydration and added anti-aging benefits, without feeling heavy, or clogging pores. The lack of added fragrance and dyes is an added plus. I would definitely recommend. Well worth the price.The texture is silky-smooth in consistency and fast drying. Upon application, it provides a pleasant cooling effect. Once absorbed my skin feels refreshingly radiant and hydrated.I have been using every night for the past couple of weeks. I have started to notice my face appears more supple, has a smoother texture, and a less ruddy tone.The packaging is classy and simple, with a luxe touch. This little jar of goodness has a front row seat on my makeup vanity. When the light reflects off the jewel adorned lid it just sparkles :)I received this product complimentary for sampling purposes but all opinions are your own. « less" - Sephora user

Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream by Clinique

"to start this off i have VERY sensitive skin, almost anything i put on my face makes me breakout. I stopped using moisturizer a few months ago because every time i would use it i would get a breakout immediately, i basically lived with a never ending breakouts. i stopped using moisturizer all together and would only use it when wearing makeup (which i don't wear very often). Anyways, my face became extremely dry so i went on the hunt for a moisturizer that would actually do something good for my skin and then i came across this. i got the 50ML tub and for the brand, ingredients and overall product i believe the price is fair. This moisturizer is fairly thick so a little goes a LONG way, i barely have to use any to moisturize my whole face well. This didnt give me a breakout at all, and had quenched my extremely dry skin literally overnight. It's only been 3 days and ive already noticed a huge difference in my skin. This moisturizer even out my skin tone, didnt cause a breakout, even CLEARED my previous acne/breakouts, gave my skin a nice, dewy glow and made my face super soft. I highly recommend this moisturizer to anyone with sensitive skin and issues with breakouts!! Not to mention is also sits beautifully under makeup, it makes my foundation look glorious. I will never stop buying this moisturizer!! « less" - Sephora user

Protini Polypeptide Cream by drunk elephant

"Hello! I have been on a search for a perfect moisturizer that doesn’t clog pores, leave you oily, or too dry forever. All my life I have been jumping between products, reading all the ingredient comedogenic raitings like a crazy person. Nothing seemed to work, everything would break me out or leave my skin looking out of balance, plus I would get tiny little under skin bumps all over. Ahh what a mess, right? I learned about different ingredients over time and managed to cut out all of the bad ones and I think I have mastered all of my products except moisturizer. I even got my skin checked with device that reads all levels of your skin and tells you oil levels, water, damage, everything. It’s funny how in my age- 29 I still wasn’t sure what my skin type was. Cause it would feel dry, but look oily? So I learned that my skin type is dry, but whenever it gets dehydrated or out of wack it generates extra sebum to protect it, so it would appear like an oil slick. Keeping my sensitive skin type in mind, avoiding all bad ingredients including silicons, trying to find an airless packaged moisturizer has been an truly a mission impossible for me. I found Lala retro cream this summer. It was calming and nourishing. But left my skin looking bit oily and when I would smile my eye area would turn in to wrinkly mess. So i thought adding B Hydra would help- it did, but when it soaks in its back to looking oily. The other thing- it broke me out, slowly, but steady. I wanted to blame it on B Hydra or marula oil, but I stopped using the cream twice and it was the cream. So looked up ingredients on “acne mantra” ( you copy/paste all ingredient list and it lets you know comedogenic ratings). So turns out one of them is red flagged. I just tried this one: Ingredients wont clog pores, and it’s like a drink for tou face. Feels comfortable- hydrated and moisturizer at the same time- plump! Finally! ❤️" - sephora user

Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer With Niacinamide by Caudalie

"A little background: I have very dry, dull skin and hyperpigmentation in some spots. I have been using this moisturizer for 8 days, once or twice per day (I know the Caudalie website says to use once a day, but I’m extra) and I have noticed MAJOR changes. I have noticeably brighter complexion, a more even tone and my skin has never been this smooth! I know this is not marketed as an anti-aging product, but I do feel younger because my skin looks healthier than it’s been in years. About the texture: it is a very airy, soft, velvety like texture. It is a pleasure to use this because it is absorbed so quickly and even though your skin looks glowy, it does not feel greasy at all (I honestly look at myself in the mirror after my skincare routine and wonder when I put highlighter on). The scent is very fresh. I like scented products and my husband does not, so I asked him to do a sniff test to see if it bothered him, and he approved it! About the ingredients: I like educating myself about what’s in the products I use, and this moisturizer has two of my favorite ingredients: hyaluronic acid and (olive) squalene. It also has niacinamide and mother of pearl particles (this makes me feel so fancy). But the one ingredient that takes the cake here is the Viniferine. I did not know what this was before this product, and it is impressive! It is a substance patented by Caudalie that is found in grapevine stalks and it is over 60 times more effective than Vitamin C when it comes to reducing and preventing dark spots, evening out skin tone and brightening the skin. This product is labeled Clean at Sephora. Bottom line is: I definitely recommend this product if you have dull skin and need a glow up, or if you have dark spots/uneven skin tone. It is also amazing for dry skin. I will probably repurchase this if my budget allows me (unfortunately with this crisis we don’t know what will happen tomorrow). I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion." - sephora user

Celery Green Cream With Hyaluronic Acid + Peptides by Volition Beauty

"Volition Beauty has done it yet again! This product is absolutely divine. I used this moisturizer for a week without using anything else but my daily cleanser so I can really get a feel for the product and can without a doubt say it absolutely does what it claims! It truly left my skin more firm, plump, smooth, and radiant. I also did noticed a decrease in the size of my pores and was definitely less oily than normal. I have very sensitive/ acne prone skin and this has not broke me out at all. This is definitely going to be a staple in my everyday routine with their strawberry c serum! I don't think I would use another moisturizer again! Volition beauty is such an amazing company they make absolutely phonomenal products and all the products I have tried from them so far really do live up to their claim and are worth every penny. I use their strawberry c serum, snow mushroom serum, and ACV peel pads and I will continue to repurchase every single one of them including the celery green cream! Their products have made such a difference in my skin I havent been using any other brand in my skincare routine besides a facial cleanser! Can't wait to try more of their products in the near future. Thank you Volition Beauty!" - sephora user

Active Moist by Dermalogica

"I am engaged in an ongoing battle with cystic acne and a dermatologist recommended I overhaul my skincare products and switch to oil-free. I used to use the Skin Smoothing Cream and I loved the texture of it, but it was too heavy for my oily skin. I've been using Active Moist for around 12 months now and this combined with other oil-free Dermalogica products, oil-free makeup and regularly cleaning my makeup brushes has made a big difference to my skin. I still get outbreaks, but nowhere near as often. Active Moist spreads really nicely over the skin, so I don't need to use loads of it. I use a little more in the evenings before bed. It's lightweight but still has a satisfying texture - my skin doesn't feel tight after applying it, which I've found in the past with other lighter moisturisers. I can't quite get away with using it as an eye cream, which I used to do with the Skin Smoothing Cream, but that's fine. If you have oily skin and need a lightweight moisturiser that still gives you that smooth, hydrated feeling then this is the one. Less" - lookfantastic.com user

C-Rush Brightening Double Crème by ole henriksen

"First of all, I am obsessed with this product. I have only been using this gel for about a week now, but I already have noticed the positive results it has done for my skin. I put it on in the morning before applying my makeup and at night before bed, and it really does hydrate my skin for a full 24 hours. I am someone who has combination skin, so it is hard for me to find products that will keep my skin moisturized and dewy while also keeping my face not greasy or oily. All the products I have used before, I quickly stopped using after a couple uses because they really did nothing for my skin and left my skin feeling worse than before using the products. This brightening gel has done wonders for my combination skin by giving me a dewy and moisturized look on my face, while making my face look smooth and glowing. It also evens out my skin tone, keeps my skin from looking dull and dry, illuminates my face, hydrates my skin, and diminishes the appearance of the fine lines on my face. Even after only a week of using this product, I already know it is going to be one of my holy grail products and definitely a product I will keep in my skincare routine permanently. The thing I love most about this product is how even wearing it under makeup, it still gives my skin a natural, radiant glow that no other product has ever done for me before and it makes my makeup apply so smoothly and effortlessly. The texture of the gel is amazing too. It is creamy and soft, and during application, it just melts into your skin. The smell is also extremely pleasant, it leaves your face smelling like fresh oranges (and who wouldn't want that?!) The Vitamin C in the product does wonders for your skin, as well. My pro tip for using this product under makeup application is to apply it first to your skin, then apply your primer, and then your face makeup. Let me tell you, you will never see your skin looking more naturally radiant, glowing, smooth, and healthy with makeup on. The other tip I have for using this product is putting it in the fridge at night, so when you wake up to apply it while getting ready, it refreshes your face, wakes you up, and reduces your under eye circles and the tiredness on your skin from sleeping. I thoroughly recommend this product to anyone with any skin type because I have never seen my skin looking so healthy, radiant, smooth, and glowing before, and I think it can improve any skin type. I did receive this product complimentary for sampling purposes, but this opinion is 100% my own. This product does wonders!! Less" - olehenriksen.com user

Cicaplast Baume B5 by La Roche-Posay

"Bought during the recent Escentual French Pharmacy deal, this repairing balm is a firm staple in my beauty collection. I bought the 40ml size (about the length of a 4S) making it ideal for my handbag or bedside table, plus you hardly need any each time you use it. So, why is it my holy grail? The cream texture turns into a balm on application, completely smoothing out and soothing any irritated skin. It can be used on broken skin and scars from old blemishes, minimising the appearance of them and working quickly to heal skin. I've used it on my face, around my finger nails where I often get broken skin and also on the soles of my feet as it soothes any burning sensation. Using this overnight will drastically improve blemish size, redness and dryness whilst also leaving an even, soft base to apply your makeup - it even creates a really natural, lightweight dewy effect (not shine) if your skin needs a perk up in the mornings. It's not used in place of a moisturiser but does have nourishing qualities to it, it's not overly rich so it's ideal for my combination skin but would most definitely work for dry and dehydrated skin too. There's no unappealing scent, no greasy residue texture or waiting time for it to absorb. It's fantastic and something I can see myself repurchasing for a long time (and the beauty blogger in me is always wanting to try something new!).

Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion by Aveda

"In reading some reviews, it appears that some folks aren't using the product in the best way to achieve good results. This product is meant to be used as the toning step in your cleaning regimen. It is to be applied with a cotton pad and gently pressed into the skin to see the best results (and eliminate accidental waste). It also works great as a hydrator before applying your makeup primer (since some primers have a drying effect). This product is great to balance moisture of the skin. I have combination skin and I still use this whenever hydration is needed or if my skin appears dull as it helps with giving the skin a youthful glow. I especially use this toner at night when as my goal is to repair my aging skin. I highly recommend this product and wish they would make it in a larger size. Less" - aveda.eu user

Super Rich Repair by Dermalogica

"I love this product.I've tried many moisturizers over the years, especially since moving to the desert.none have improved my skin as much as this. I recently overhauled my skin care routine because the organic products I was using were not agreeing with me. I had redness around my t zone and small red blemishes under the skin. My worst issue was the dryness. I live in Phoenix so the hot, extremely dry climate was wreaking havoc on my skin (moved a year ago). My skin resembled the desert in which I live - flaking and visible dry lines. I overhauled my skin care and now have amazing skin!!!! My new regimen is all dermalogica products. I start with the pre cleanse (if wearing make up), follow up with resurfacing cleanser, antioxidant hydramist, skin hydrating booster, and finish with super rich repair. Every few days I use the daily microfoliant. The only product that I use that isn't Dermalogica is my sun block. I might try their physical block for sensitive skin though. I really can't even describe how much this overhaul changed my skin for the better. I actually leave the house without makeup for the first time in years. The redness and red blemishes are gone, no more dryness!!!!!! I attribute the biggest change tiki this moisturiser. My skin looks brighter and healthier. I'm so impressed and that takes a lot coming from this self proclaimed skin care junkie. Even my day to day makeup is sheer! This particular product is great on it's own though. I started with the resurfacing cleanser, the super rich repair and the hydramist. I saw amazing results. It got even better with the booster and microfoliant. I'm so happy I invested in this line of skin care." - ulta user

Cool Biotic Prebiotic Redness Relief Cream by Dr. Brandt

"I received this product complimentary from Dr. Brandt Skincare. I noticed that the last couple years my cheeks get red specially at night and I get the feeling of being too warm and like burning-irritation, very uncomfortable, I have always wondered if it is because of the weather changes, being outdoors for many hours everyday or my skin getting so sensitive, probably a mix of everything, so I am glad that there are products that give me that needed relief, this cream does that, it provides a cooling effect and a good hydration at the same time, about the color time will tell. The main ingredients include Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (calming and soothing effect), Biotic Balancing Complex (for a healthier appearance) and Colloidal Oatmeal (moisture and calming signs of distress). This cream is not classified as “Clean at Sephora Products” on its website, but the brand claims it is dermatologist tested, ophthalmologist tested, hypoallergenic, safe for contact lens wearers and tested on sensitive skin." - sephora user

Vegan Milk Moisturizer by Milk Makeup

"I waited until I finish the whole jar to write this review, so this is not one of those useless first impression review. However, I am a make up artist and use this mostly for prepping the skin of my clients. Please note that my review will not be about how it performs on its own but more about how it helps me in make up application, so please pardon my limited perspective. SKIN TYPES You probably will not believe this, but I use this moisturizer on all my clients regardless the skin type. It really works on everybody.. Which might be why it is part of the 'Make Up Artist Skin Care Series'. - I use the tiniest amount for those with oilier skin. While this will not make you any less shiny, it will not contribute in adding more shine to your oily skin either. It will just soak in like water and feel good. - I use a pea-sized amount for normal-dry skin and double, sometimes triple, that amount for very dry or mature skin. If you have dry patches that your foundation loves to emphasize, try rubbing some more on it until it is visibly gone. Unless it is severe, this should work. This will somehow soothe and calm mild irritation on sensitive skin (make it feel comfortable) and so far, never triggered any allergic reaction. CONCLUSIONS - Makeup-preparation-wise, this followed by Vegan Milk Moisturizer will make your make up glide like never before, I swear. - This is a great product for make up artists, because it can be used on everyone. I also love that it's paraben, talc, silicone, sulfate, and fragrance free but if you look at the lengthy ingredient list, there are still plenty of other ingredients that make this less natural/clean than it's marketed to be. However, if you are looking for something for your own skin, you'd probably find something more suitable out there. It is something that will work well, but you may not find it extraordinary. I do wish it was in a pump bottle due to hygeine and convenience. this is definately worth a try." - sephora user

Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion With Birch Sap by cosrx

"I really like how lightweight but hydrating this is. My skin type is oily, but often gets dehydrated (not to be confused with dry.) I like that this has hyaluronic acid to get my skin moisturized without clogging pores. I see many reviewers saying it's not truly oil free, but the oils included are tea tree and lemon, which are essential oils rather than something greasy like coconut oil or olive oil. Tea tree is likely included since it's antibacterial/antimicrobial, and lemon can help lighten acne scars, and I personally like their inclusion, but I know some people can be sensitive to them, so patch test first if possible. Overall, I find it to be a good gel-cream for acne-prone, oily skin and worth a try. " - ulta.com user

Complete Lotion Moisturizer SPF 15 Sensitive by Olay

"In high school I suffered with acne and combination (oily/dry skin) and went through SO many products that were expensive, and even from the dermatologist himself. Finally my family doctor recommended this to me as he suffered with skin problems his whole life. After I wash my face with a mild cleanser I apply this lotion to my entire face (just about the size of a dime - nickel) after rubbing it together in my hands. Not only does it brighten my skin but it made all of the tiny bumps that COVERED my forehead go away and I don't break out anywhere else minus the occasional pimple or two. It seems to have so many benefits plus the bottle lasts me at least 6 months!!! I used to use Clinique and Estee Lauder lotions and then found that this works so much better and the PRICE is awesome! I use the formula for sensitive skin. I recommend this to all of my friends as a moisturizer and even buy it for them sometimes because it has so many benefits. It's been 7 years and I'm still using it every day! I even moved from PA to LA and it works the same in different temps/humidity." - walmart user

Toleriane Fluide Daily Soothing by La Roche-Posay

"In the past few years, I have had a number of bouts with perioral dermatitis (which for me consists of red, rough, scaly, unhappy skin around the mouth, chin, and sides of nose which sometimes has tiny, rashy-looking bumps) on top of my lifelong sensitive, oily-but-dry skin. I experience hormonal acne, various skin allergies, etc. To try to calm, balance, and heal my facial skin, in addition to seeing two dermatologists, I spent hundreds of hours researching what was available/recommended, reduced my exposure to countless potential irritants (household chemicals, foods, supplements, cosmetics, perfumes, etc.), and over the course of several years I tried scores of skincare products, most of which only made my facial skin condition worse. It was so frustrating and expensive. I finally chanced upon the La Roche-Posay Toleriane line (for sensitive skin, fragrance-free), and it was fortunate that I tried this particular Toleriane moisturizer first. It is by far the best moisturizer for my face that I have ever found! Later, out of curiosity, I tried three other moisturizers in the Toleriane range (all of which are heavier than this one), but I came back to the Fluide.Along with the brand's thermal water in a spray-can and the original Toleriane milky cleanser (the one in the bottle with a snap cap), this moisturizer has helped my skin so much. It does not break me out, it is not oily or slippery, it doesn't dry to a strange texture, it is soothing, simple, and reliable. I like the protective nature of the pump bottle with a cap, which keeps the contents fresh and uncontaminated. I use a half-pump to a pump twice a day and get through a bottle in about two and a half months. I always keep two extra bottles on hand in my closet, to make sure that I don't run out, haha. « less" - lovelyskin.com user

Renergie Multi-Lift Redefining Lifting Cream SPF15 by Lancôme

"Lancôme Renergie Multi-Lift Day cream SPF15A beautiful rich cream day cream. Firstly the rich buttery texture is so luxurious.Sinks immediately into my drier skin with the climate were having at the moment.I feel so much more confident in my skincare knowing I'm using a quality product, that is not only super moisturising but gives a lift at the same time. Having the SPF15 there also means I’m confident when I’m out and about in the sun, I know I’m looking after my skin.This cream has a delicate fragrance that lasts, I’ve had so many compliments about the scent. I can see after just one week the difference, and how much my face and neck does look tighter and more lifted and definitely more radiant. No irritation at all, my skin can feel a little sensitive with the heat.I use every morning has part of my skincare routine, coupled with the Lancôme Renergie Multi-Lift Eye & Anti wrinkle eye cream my Face is good to go.I couldn’t be happier, and after one week I’m amazed at what is looking back at me in the mirror and can't wait to see the long term results. « less" - Lancôme user

Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy Lotion by Estée Lauder

"I love this toner, which is more of a liquid serum. It is so luxurious in the texture and feel. I use a cotton pad and apply it nightly before my creams and lotions. First, it has this amazingly fresh, natural, light fragrance that is not at all overbearing. I have asthma and allergies and no problems (plus, the scent quickly dissipates). Secondly, it has not clogged my pores or caused any breakouts. And last but not least, it leaves my skin soft, smooth, brighter, more-even complected, and plumps fine lines and wrinkles. It's a keeper. I will definitely continue to purchase this product." - sephora user

"The Revitalizing Supreme+ Wake Up Balm was one of three Christmas presents my husband ordered for me from Estée Lauder. This actually wasn't my first or second choice, but I'm so glad I chose this I didn't realize how dull and dehydrated my skin was. I haven't been sleeping that much or taking care of my skin the way I should have. It was starting to become noticeable to everyone but me. The first day I used this serum on my face, my husband said I was glowing. This is a wonder working product. I've been using it every morning, and sometimes I apply it just to wake my face up. The great thing about it is, I can apply it on my bare face or over my makeup. I love the radiant glow it gives me. Definitely recommend to anyone that feels dehydrated or isn't getting enough sleep." - nordstrom user

SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream by garnier

"If you're reading reviews & are afraid of strong fragrance smells, DO NOT listen to everyone who's complaining about it. Unless you're sticking your nose in it, you CAN'T smell it. It blows my mind every time I see comments complaining about how it smells like "chemicals" No it doesn't?? I've seen some comments praising Neutrogena's Hydro Boost while dissing this. Hydro Boost 100% has a stronger CHEMICAL smell. It irritates skin near the eyes & is a very strong smell. ANYWAYS aside from addressing the baby comments. This is a great moisturizer. It's light weight & has dramatically reduced my pimples & small skin-colored bumps that I could not get rid of for years. It takes a few minutes to fully seep in before you can do anything else to your skin, but it's not that long of a wait. You only need a pinky worth for each section of your face. A little goes a long way. The only issue is that it get's shiny on your forehead. I don't think this fights SUPER oily skin well. It can fight oily skin, normal skin, & combo, but seems to have an issue fighting against SUPER oily skin. That only happens to me when I go out 12+ hrs though." - ulta user

Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Creme by Estée Lauder

"I had a free facial with Estée Lauder and they used this on me and I saw an immediate difference. I hemmed and hawed about the price, but no serum is needed and I decided that for the cost of one less soda or coffee a day, it's worth it! I've used the product for about two weeks and the lines around my mouth and on my forehead are gone. I still have crows feet but they have grown smaller. my skin looks plumper and literally glows (that's supposed to be from the pearls). it's very expensive, but for me, I'll forego some small indulgences to have reversed so many years of aging!Absorptionthis was one thing that sold me. unlike other moisturizers, the skin drinks this up and there is no greasy feel at all.Doesn't Clog PoresI used to have an occasional breakout; those are gone, and my pores are much smallerEffectivenessSimply the only moisturizer I have ever used that lived up to its claims! « less" - viewpoints.com user

Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme by Estée Lauder

"I love Hydrationist maximum moisture creme because it is not a heavy thick creme. It is lighter & absorbs into the skin readily. The fragrance is light but very nice, almost wish I could smell it longer! I have moderate rosecea all over my face & Hydrationist does not irritate my skin or make it more red. It's the perfect moisturizer for my oily/combination skin for the warmer months of the year as it soaks into my face/neck easily & is light. I use Revitalizing Supreme Global anti-aging creme during the colder months as I need a thicker/heavier moisturizer for my skin which is more dry during fall/winter. I highly recommend Hydrationist for all skin types as there is a dry formula as well as an normal/combination formula. It makes my skin feel very soft. LOVE IT!! Thanks EL :) " - Estée Lauder user

Hydrating Face Cream Moisturizer by Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

"I got this moisturizer for winter use and it's amazing. Normally my skin is pretty oily, but winter hit and my skin was super dry. I live in San Diego so my winter was around the 60-50s, it's not as extreme as any east coast temps. I did go to the snowy mountains for a few days (still in cali) and it held up really well..but again, probably not as cold as east coast and I was only there for a few days. Prior to this moisturizer, my skin was mildly breaking out (during summer and winter) but now it looks healthy, soft, and radiant. That's probably the most important factor for me, not breaking out. My skin is sensitive so whenever I try a new product it's a gamble. I will say that I still get little pimples on my chin around my period. I don't think anything can ever help/prevent that. But at least with this moisturizer, I've noticed the pimples are smaller (some not even noticeable) and there will be like 2 when i usually get around 5-6. So far, I am completely in love with this product. I love everything about it and lathering it on just feels incredibly luxurious. The texture is just perfect to me, its pretty light for a cream. It's starting to get warm in SD so we'll see if I'll get versatility with this or will have to switch for the summer. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

Rebuilding Moisturizer by tata harper

"I love this moisturiser. I have combination skin, which is acne prone but which is also starting to get fine lines. This moisturiser is all natural, doesn't clog my pores, but keeps the skin matte and hydrated throughout the day. It's a luxurious product and feels it. It smells natural and fresh and is really a lovely product to use. Definitely a repurchase item for me. " - Cult Beauty user

Skin Rescuer by Kiehls
4.5(226)$40

"I'm a shift worker so my skin often looks dull and tired anyway, but I've also been diagnosed with rosacea and have tried EVERYTHING to get my redness, dryness and blemishes under control, from upping water intake, to coconut oil, topical antibiotics, specialist rosacea creams, standard sensitive moisturisers and even rubbing turmeric on my face (yup, I know) but everything would make my skin flare up as soon as I applied it, and I'd have to top up during the day to combat dryness. Not great on top of make up. I got a sample of this and was reluctant as the price tag is a bit hefty for me, but... WOW! Noticeable reduction in redness right away, skin is beautifully plump and no more dryness. My make up would often look cakey where my skin was drying out, but this has never been an issue since using this. I only use it at night as I found it a little too greasy to go under make up and, to be honest, it's so good I found once a day did me fine. Now I just pat a little argan oil on before applying make up then cleanse, alcohol free toner and this stuff at night. However I've also found this cream is especially good after swimming as this often makes my skin tight and itchy. Couple of pumps of this and it's sorted. I then stumbled on a tester of Kiehl's Hydro-Plumping serum in my bag. Not expecting much, I put it on at night under the Skin Rescue just because it was there and went to bed not giving it another thought. Woke up and I've never been so impressed with my skin. Really fresh looking, lines reduced around my eyes and looking very peach and youthful (it takes a lot for me to be impressed by a product)... It's really like I've got new skin. So I've bought that too and hope it lasts. Never been so happy with my skin. But now my husband keeps pinching it. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - House of Fraser user

Clinique For Men Maximum Hydrator Activated Water-Gel Concentrate by Clinique

"I bought this product for my hubby last year for the first time. He gets dry patches on his skin around cheeks and sometimes mouth area. He tends to dry a bit after shaving and alot of the other products I've bought either irritate him or just don't work. This works good on fine lines, but it is not a miracle wrinkle reducer. I usually have to remind him to put on the lotion, but since he has been using this one he remembers every night. So killed two birds with one stone! His skin has improved tremendously, you can see the change within 3 or 4 days. The dryness and occasional redness are gone. It doesn't have a strong scent which he loves. He uses it all over his face, neck and ears...yes ears. I ran out of my mositurizer and started using this one as a substitute and have to admit it's quite nice. It is not greasy, oily, flaky or too liquidly. It is just right, and the smell is very nice and subtle. The jar usually last about 3-4 mths, depending on if I use it to. Doesn't stain clothes or pillowcases. I do think it is pricey, but it works! Hopefully they will read this and drop the price....maybe. Hope this helps. « less" - ulta.com user

PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer by Alpyn Beauty

"I received this complementary for review, but as a skincare enthusiast myself, I believe in the importance of ingredients! Thus, my review will focus heavily on the ingredients. First off, with hyaluronic acid being listed so high, it's not surprising to me that this does have an immediate smoothing effect. When I apply this, my skin instantly looks hydrated and plump. It is also high in antioxidant-rich ingredients, which are used to help the skin fight environmental stressors/free radical exposure. Some of my favorite ingredients include organic aloe, which is a great ingredient for calming/irritation as well as bakuchiol. Personally, I've had incredible results using bakuchiol and I consider it my "daytime retinol (alternative)". In the research on bakuchiol, we see the same receptor activation in the presence of either retinoic acid and bakuchiol - suggesting a relation. I don't consider bakuchiol to be the same as retinol/retinoids, but it does seem to help prevent breakouts/smooth my skin in the same way as retinol does (specifically retinol; I experience dryness with retinoids but not retinol - no dryness with bakuchiol). There is no fragrance in this product but the last two ingredients contribute to scent: lavender and orange. In usage, there is barely any discenable scent; I suspect these are at VERY low concentrations in this product. As far as using the product, it is a surprisingly lightweight cream even though it does contain excellent occlusive ingredients. It performs well under makeup, and I have not experienced any breakouts even though my skin is prone to acne. The only potential con I have is price, but considering this product is made in the US/sustainable/clean/cruelty-free/from a smaller brand, I do feel the price is fair. We don't talk enough about sustainability, and it's such an important conversation - it is VERY exciting to see a brand embrace this direction! Overall, it's definitely a recommendation from me!" - sephora user

Skin Hydrating Booster by Dermalogica

"I have been using this product for 6 months, and I still LOVE it! I have combination skin to the extremes: Really oily T-zone, and my chin and cheeks get so dry (especially in the winter) that they get flaky and red. I have tried the heaviest moisturizers in combinations and nothing seemed to help the flaky dryness. My skin gets really sensitive and red because it's so dry. I used to have to rush to put moisturizer on my face before it dried completely from a shower and got tight, dry, and flaky. Well, not anymore! I layer this booster every morning under Intensive Moisture Balance (a heavy-duty cream moisturizer from Dermalogica) and sometimes another brand's moisturizer on top, and my skin stays soft and hydrated all day long instead of getting dry again halfway through. My skin has improved overall and looks/feels much better than it used to without any product on as well, since it's less sensitive and irritated with the constant extra boost of moisture. My skin is too dry in places to be able to wear just the booster alone, so I always have to layer with a moisturizer. A tiny amount to spread over just my problem spots is enough, so this small bottle goes a long way. Definitely worth every penny, and I got a second one for my gym bag so I'm always prepared and hydrated! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - ulta.com user

Honey Savior All In One Skin Repair Salve by farmacy

"I got a sample of this and I honestly wasn't expecting much, but after the first use... WOW!I've been using this just about every night for 2 weeks as my night moisturizer for face and lips, and it has made a DRAMATIC improvement in my skin. I have dry/combo, acne prone skin and this salve has: deeply hydrated my skin incredibly well, cleared up dry spots from healing acne, healed existing acne 2x faster than usual, and is helping reduce the amount and severity of my breakouts.The price point is a little high for me, but I purchased the full size immediately after I finished my sample knowing that this tube will last months. I use only a pea size amount to cover my entire face and lips! It's very thick but really melts into the skin beautifully. I warm it up between my fingers before applying and softly moisturize it into my face for a good minute or two to ensure that it's really penetrated so it can work it's magic while I sleep.I can't rave about this product enough, it truly has transformed my skin in such a short amount of time. If you're suffering from acne and have dry skin, I highly recommend this as a nighttime moisturizer. With the winter coming up, I'm sure this will continue to be my #1! « less" - Sephora user

Pureness Soothing Light Moisturizer by bareMinerals

"I received this product complimentary for testing purposes. I am so in love with this moisturizer; I had low expectations because skincare is not in BareMinerals' wheelhouse, but I'm definitely going to buy this again. This is a fragrance free, lightweight but very effective moisturizer that's fantastic on sensitive skin. I have some permanent redness from a peek gone wrong several years ago and combination skin that tends to get angry, dry and break out in the winter - this makes it feel supple, has eliminated my redness and has been SO hydrating it's really kept my winter acne in check. I've been using it for about five days morning and night and woke up this morning amazed at how clear my skin looked. Highly recommend!!" - ulta user

Illuminating Moisturizer by tata harper

"The only two cons of this product are that the smell is just alright and that the price is high.I sort of hate how much I love this. I got it with a cult beauty box and had never tried this brand before. I'm so grateful this product was included because it is an absolute pleasure to use! I apply one pump after my skincare and it really illuminates the face. It doesn't replace a moisturizer (for dry skin like mine) but if you dream of having a quick, easy, and low maintenance beauty routine where your skin glows from just tossing a product onto your face then this is a product worth trying. I usually apply it with my fingers either before makeup or on its own. Will be repurchasing, to the chagrin of my wallet. " - Cult Beauty user
