"I'm not sure what happened to my face for the past 2 weeks. I've never had major acne problems or bad skin...pimple every now and then. I remember putting Alpha Hydrox Spot Light Targeted Skin Lightener (pretty much a dark spot remover# on my cheek area and outer part of my nose. Went out in the sun for about 30mins #that's the most sun exposure I've had because I do not like heat at all# a couple of days later...next thing I knew, I woke up and had like these burnt marks on my cheeks and nose. At first I thought my face was just dry so I did my routine with my Mary Kay 3-in-1 Cleanser but then when I put on my makeup #after using my Neutrogena oil free moisturizer#, mainly my foundation #cream, liquid, and/or powder# I noticed that the make-up was just sitting there and it formed like a rim around the dark spots - it was SO obvious! I noticed that I could peel some of it away when I scratched it lightly or used a tweezer, so I told myself - lay off the makeup and just put something to soften it so it can peel away faster. I used Vaseline, Shea butter, and even Neosporin at night but the flakes were still there after washing my face with the cleanser. Some of it went away but I noticed it was still there when I put on makeup and it was kind of hard like a scar. So I tried using a scrub at night, which it did help very little, but I would have to scrub my face kind of hard with Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub in order to remove the flakes, then my cheeks were kind of red and sore. I knew that things were not getting better because it would burn after using the Aveeno scrub and when putting on the Shea butter or Neosporin. So finally looked online and did some research on Tuesday, June 4th on how to get rid of "dead/flaky skin" #mind you, the past 2 weeks, I barely wore makeup#. Found this one article online and they said the key was: 1. CLEANSE #with a scrub or exfoliate# 2. FACIAL STEAM #pour hot water in a bowl and cover your head with a bath towel and allow the steam to penetrate - be careful not to burn yourself! If you feel the steam is too much remove the towel for a short period of time and go back# 3. HYDRATE #with a moisturizer with that contains ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid to draw in moisture, strengthening and plumping skin, plus SPF 30 to protect it from the sun# When researching the moisturizer, quite a bit of websites said CeraVe was one of the best and highly recommended by dermatologist. After reading the reviews, I said to myself - "Why not"!. I went to Wal-Mart and purchased the CeraVe on Tuesday, June 4th. I followed these 3 steps above and put the CeraVe all over my face, heavier application on my cheeks and side of my nose where the burn marks were and went to bed. Woke up this morning, Wed, June 5th and without even washing my face, I noticed immediately that the flakes had reduced and they were falling off! Washed my face with the Aveeno Scrub and more came off. My cheeks and nose was not hurting, it was calm, felt soft and nourished! I AM SO IMPRESSED with CERAVE. I can't believe it worked so fast and effectively. My husband looked at my face and said "It looks much better" #and this is a man of few words#!! I know my comment/story was long but had to be thorough from beginning to end for you to get a better understanding of my experience and why I rated the product the way I did. Like I mentioned, not sure what I had, dry skin, sun burn or if it was due to the skin lightener I used. In summary, I'm going to continue this process until my face returns to its normal state. I think CeraVe will be my new daytime moisturizer - it doesn't clog your pores, makes your skin feel soft and smooth, and in my opinion its great healing source for burns, dryness, flaky skin, etc. For only $12 at Wal-Mart...it beats a trip to a dermatologist and paying a co-pay of $25-50, right? So TRY IT, seriously doubt that you'll be disappointed. A. Little - 34 yr. old, Ghanaian Women Shepherdstown, WV" - walmart user

"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
"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
Since 1926, Weleda's Skin Food Original Ultra-Rich Cream has been the best beauty secret and the ultimate moisturizer for dry, rough skin. Now it's your turn to discover the essence of soft skin!

Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme is a silky-soft, deeply nourishing multi-action creme that encourages skin's natural power to amplify collagen and elastin. Lines and wrinkles look dramatically reduced.
"The cream is packaged in a heavy, appealing glass jar and I didn't find it to have any noticeable fragrance. It is on the heavy side but it spread easily upon contact with my skin. My skin felt moisturized and dewy but not greasy. I thought it might be too heavy for my oily, aging, dehydrated skin but it wasn't. It took a bit of time for it to absorb into my skin. I found this to be a fabulous nighttime cream for me. In the morning, my skin was wonderfully soft and NOT GREASY! Those with dry skin could probably use it day and night. In addition to the hyaluronic acid, edelweiss (leontopodix) extract and red algae (chrondus chrispus) extract, it contains peptides, ceramides, and fatty acids - all of which help strengthen and repair the skin barrier. I love everything about this cream and highly recommend it for all skin types." - sephora user
First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration is a fast-absorbing, rich moisturizer that provides instant and long-term hydration for dry, distressed skin and eczema.
"First, this is an aha moment for me as I have tried too many skin creams but have come to realize that Estee Lauder's Time Zone Creams are the best for my skin.I am over 50 and have seen my share of too much sun and many smiles. I have combination skin with dryness on the cheeks, forehead and neck. My nose and decollete are not dry. I use ATZ from the decollete up to the hairline. Both the Day and the Night cream go on my face like velvet. Throughout the day the velvety feel is like a boost in confidence that I must look as good as I feel. I am smell sensitive and ATZ is the only cream that doesn't make my nose cringe.When I use it consistently I am very happy with my face! The life toxins that bombard my face aren't so obvious. It may sound crazy but now that I have been out of both the day and night creams for a while my skin just isn't the same. I have been using ATZ off and on for more than 10 years and NO other skin cream smooths the wrinkles and makes my skin feel like this. I love the texture of my skin. I don't even mind not wearing makeup. That says something about someone who has been makeup insecure.I have tried creams ranging from shopping channel specials to mineral make up brand skin care to other prestige brands and keep coming back to EL ATZ! I won't be wasting money on any other product line when this is what my face craves.My suggestion to EL is to make a Christmas gift card special for ATZ. I wanted to ask for this for Christmas but it wasn't "Gift Card Easy" for my husband!Trust me you will not be disappointed in this product unless you are a new born baby!! Less" - Estée Lauder user

"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
"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
Kate Somerville's DeliKate Recovery Cream is a calming recovery cream designed to soothe sensitized skin, relieve tightness and reduce visible redness while restoring skin's protective barrier.
"I have been using Vaseline brand Original 100% Petroleum Jelly ever since I was a child, and now, in my 30s, I still think it is a miracle product with a million and one uses.As a child, any time I had dry lips, this is what my mom or dad would give me to remedy the problem. And you know what? It worked like a charm. I grew up for years and years using this as a natural chapped lip remedy, and I still use it as one.Now, as an adult, I have found so many other uses. I have used this product for my own babies' diaper rashes and as sort of a moisture barrier protectant when changing diapers. I use vaseline to treat dry, cracked winter skin. I have even put it inside my nose when my nose is so dry it is about ready to bleed from the dry winter weather and air, to keep it moist and from cracking. Sometimes at night I will lather my hands completely in Vaseline petroleum jelly, put on the little manicure mittens and then sleep all night with them on. The next morning my dry, rough skin has completely vanished, as Vaseline petroleum jelly never fails to create soft, supply, moist skin where dry skin once was.Needless to say, I love this product and have been using it for my entire life. It has endless uses, is natural, and extremely inexpensive. The smell is mild and one jar will literally last forEVER. This product is a must have in every person's medicine cabinet. « less" - viewpoints.com user
Lancôme Rènergie Lift Multi-Action Ultra Face Cream SPF 30 is anti-aging meets sun protection that lifts, firms and corrects dark spots.
"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!).

Garnier SkinActive Rose Water 24H Moisture Gel provides lasting hydration. The sheer water gel formula is absorbed into skin replenishing moisture without leaving a greasy residue. Vegan formula made without parabens, oils, dyes, and phthalates. Suitable for normal to combination skin.
"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

"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

"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

"I don't think I could ever say enough about this product! I have very dry and eczema prone skin, which only gets worse during the winter months. I'm particularly prone around my eyes which leaves me very limited in the products I can use - even my prescription moisturiser is very painful to use when the skin is inflamed. This stuff is a lifesaver - I can apply it around my eyes at night with no pain and wake up free from dryness and flakiness. I also use it on my lips and hands and I'm certain it would work wonders everywhere else too! I would happily pay double the price for this product considering the results, and it really is a case of a little goes a long way. I've also started using it sparingly under makeup, which stops the makeup clumping and looking vile around dry patches during the day, and keeps it in place for much longer too.

"Finally, a pretty affordable water gel moisturizer that contains no alcohol, silicone, fragrance or dyes! Yay! It's 89% French mineral water (hence the name). It feels so good on the skin, and so only need one pump at a time (though I would advise using a toning spray or mineral water spray immediately before this moisturizer so that the skin is damp before applying, in order to spread the product. Doing that, one pump is enough for the face, neck and décolletage.) I also make sure to get my eye area with this when I use it, and there's no irritation. It feels so soothing and quenching. I have oily skin, and this moisturizer is super lightweight, which I love. It just soaks into skin with no residue of any kind. It performs perfectly under makeup and sunscreen. I would recommend the use of a heavier moisturizer on top of this for drier skin types. Sensitive skin should have no problem at all with this. Oh, and the bottle is gorgeous! It's thick, heavy glass, with an ombré from clear to real, and the product looks like the ocean in the bottle; so pretty! The pump keeps it sanitary. I'm on my first bottle, getting near the end, and I've been using it morning and night for 2 and a half months now. I think I can get at least another week out of that bottle, but will definitely repurchase it before it runs out. I would recommend this moisturizing gel to anyone. Great product.

"I bought this on a whim because there was a sale on the brand. I was a little wary of putting it on my face because it does have preservatives and fragrance and whatnot, but I have experienced no issues from it. I have combination skin that is prone to clogged pores. I started by using it at night. It can be a little sticky if you use too much. I notice a difference in my skin after using this for only 3 days, so much that I started using it during the day, too. My skin was getting very oily before this due to dryness from salycilic acid, but this stuff keeps my skin nearly oil free all day! I don't think it would work as a facial moisturizer for those with very dry skin, but if you have skin like mine, it may just be worth a try. My skin looks more alive and refreshed after using this product. I like to apply this, let it dry, and then layer a moisturizer on top. It also works great if you pop a pimple and you want to reduce redness. Picking is soooo bad, but it happens to the best of us sometimes. I haven't tried it on sunburn yet, but I'm sure it would work well, if it didn't irritate my face at all. It has a pleasant cooling effect." - ulta user

"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
"I am 52 years old and have used EL since I was 30. People usually think I am 10+ years younger. I recently purchased the Ultimate Diamond face and eye cream and all I can say is WOW! I noticed a huge difference within a few weeks. Lines and wrinkles dimished as well as my pores were invisible! The best part for me was my skin looked radiant, well hydrated and my make up started looking flawless. While it is expensive, I usually mix a bit of my ANR and ANR matrix with it so I can get it to last longer. When tighter on a budget I will rotate days between this and my Revitalizinh Supreme (another winner)! An EL client for life! " - Macy's user
"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

"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
"Just started using Vanicream and I love it. I have very dry skin that is also quite sensitive. I had been using Amlactin lotion because it was recommended to me for rough, dry skin. While Amlactin did help with the rough texture, it just was not moisturizing enough, especially during the dry winter months. My skin still felt dry, so I wanted something more emollient with longer lasting moisture. I got a free sample of Vanicream to review and I am really happy with it. In looking at the Vanicream ingredients, I was worried that it was going to be like Aquaphor, which I do not care for because it feels like vaseline. Vanicream is the best of both worlds! It is NOT GREASY AT ALL, but is creamy and extremely moisturizing. Long lasting moisture, too. It is thick, but not overly thick so it is easy to apply. It is a little tacky feeling at first, but sinks in to your skin pretty quickly. I love that is fragrance free. It just has a nice, neutral clean, no smell smell. I use it on my hands, arms, elbows, feet, and it is gentle enough to use on my rosacea prone face. « less" - Target user
"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
"Love this brand. Being a Makeup junkie, I have tried several products. This is the second time I have purchased it. The product line is cruelty-free. I use the moisturizer for daytime use only. Can be used at night as well. It's pretty lightweight if you massage it in with a little water. Also, sufficient for under eye if you are younger and do not need help in that area yet. Great under makeup and doesn't break it down. My skin feels and looks hydrated all day. I have even added a little skin oil when I feel I needed extra hydration and it mixed well.

"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

"Excellent purchase, good sized product. Cleared up the sudden acne I've been getting on my neck and under my chin since I turned 42. I've tried all kinds of acne products and this vitality8 line has cleared, renowned, and smoothed my under chin and neck within 4 days! Amazing! I bought the cleanser and then cream, I'm about to purchase the emulsion and night cream, I believe these 4 products, as expensive as they are will actually help my skin. My face feels so soft, and my gradually occurring wrinkles and lines are smoothing out, and like I said I've just started using this product, I can only imagine the positive results I'm gonna get one month in. Very happy with purchase. Expensive but worth it. " - Estée Lauder user
