Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator by Clinique

"I am currently on my second course of accutane (for those of you who don't know what that is it's a very intense drug for acne that essentially stops all oil production from your body and makes your skin crazy dry and painful) It's also worth noting that I'm taking it during the winter when my skin is extra dry + I've always had very dry skin my entire life no matter what. I've tried COUNTLESS moisturizers, drugstore and high end (even ones costing more than this) desperately trying to find anything that made a noticeable difference. Some other products came close but always pilled up and left a gross texture on my skin all day so I'd have to take it off before applying makeup, not this one. This is genuinely the BEST moisturizer I have ever tried. Not only is it the most moisturizing and long lasting, it also leaves my skin feeling so soft and looking a lot less dull for several hours without pilling up under my makeup. It's a miracle. It may be a bit heavy for some, if so apply it at night and wake up with the perfect amount of moisture without feeling suffocated. I genuinely could not recommend this product enough, I wish I would have known about it not only the first time I went on accutane but also just my entire life with dry, dull skin. My skin has stopped peeling and having dry rough spots since using this, which is an actual miracle for an accutane user since my skin was constantly so dry it peeled the first time I was on the medication before I discovered this product. I'm SO thankful and urge anyone with dry skin to try this product!! I've tried their other moisture surge moisturizer as well and do think it's amazing and will use it during the day sometimes or on my neck, but if you have dry skin not combination or just want extra moisture definitely get this one, the intense version, not the other. A little goes a long way and I'll be purchasing a second jar before this one runs out just to make sure I never have to go without it. 100% worth the price." - ulta user

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

Bio Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cream by Sobel Skin Rx

"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

Advanced Time Zone Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Creme SPF 15 by Estée Lauder

"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

Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex by murad

"At 22 years old, I had just graduated college and was still having skin problems. I thought, ‘This is so high school! My skin issues should be over by now!’ But I still broke out almost once a month, my skin tone was uneven, and I had slight scarring from years of these monthly breakouts. I tried EVERYTHING: prescriptions, over-the-counter products, designer products, etc. My skin refused to shape up.One day my dermatologist suggested I try Murad’s Essential-C product line. I went online to look it up, and decided to purchase the Essential-C Cleanser, Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex, Essential-C Eye Cream with SPF 15, and Essential-C Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30.The first day my skin felt softer. On the fifth day I began to notice that my sunspots and scarring were fading away. In two weeks, it changed my whole demeanor. I spent less time putting on make-up in the morning because there wasn’t as much to cover! I also saved money by not having to buy as much make-up. I wasn’t afraid that people were looking at my skin problems, I knew they were admiring my radiance. The Daily Renewal Complex has the same effect as an expensive spa facial. It evens out my skin tone, and balances out the texture of my skin, it actually feels silky!And now, after five months, the Essential-C product line has had such a positive effect on my life that when my mom’s fiftieth birthday came around, I bought her products from Fine Lines and Wrinkles. When my sister’s half birthday came around (I couldn’t wait for a real holiday) I bought her the entire line of Acne products. The two most important women in my life deserve the best. And now, the look on their face (and the look OF their face) is absolutely priceless when they tell me how Murad has helped them, inside and out. « less" - Murad 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

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

Ultra Light Moisturizing Lotion by cerave

"take this from a real teenage girl who has been dealing with rosacea and extremely dry skin, that this is the best moisturizer i’ve EVER used. every face moisturizer or body lotion that IVE EVER USED has made my skin feel tingly, and has either left my face feeling sticky or has felt way too thick and greasy. I HAVE SKIN THAT IS DRIER THAN THE SAHARA DESERT and this genuinely makes it feel SO SOFT ALL. DAY. LONG. the first time after i used it i touched my face a few hours later and i still felt it on my skin but it was so smooth and it felt like i had just put it on. when they say “all day releasing” they really mean it. I use this on both my face & body and i’ve never been so in love with a skin care product in my life. i’m obsessed. I have very sensitive skin on my face and especially the back of my hands. i had lots of irritation just now on my hand, and it is the first lotion that has EVER in my life ACTUALLY CALMED MY SKIN. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT. THE REDNESS AND IRRITATION WENT DOWN. i will never use another lotion again.I rarely write reviews but wow, this is the best product i’ve ever used. Less" - cerave.com user

Aloe Vera 93% Soothing Gel by Skinfood

"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

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

Moisturizing Skin Cream by vanicream

"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

Calm Water Gel by Dermalogica

"This product really surprised me.... out of the tube, it feels really light and watery, like it wouldn't do anything for you, but once you put it on your face, it immediately sinks in... you really do get that plumping feeling that other products say they do, but don't. I have extremely dry skin from using retin-a for the last couple years, and I normally moisturize with three products; a water gel, a regular moisturizer, and an oil to seal the moisture in.... I've been through so many high end moisturizers, and at the end of my day, I always feel a little dry. This product moisturizes like a dream.... I don't have to fallow up with anything else. It's very lightweight, does not leave the skin greasy, and does not sting my face like other hylouronic acid gels usually do to me. I will say that this item is pretty pricey, however, you really don't need a lot. My previous holy grail water gel cream was the Peter Thomas Roth cream cloud, however I had to use a lot more of that each time to apply. This is not like that. A pea sized amount will moisturize your whole face. I'm very impressed with this and until now didn't know a moisturizer like this existed. I think this product would be great for all skin types. It's lightweight for oily skin, but hydrates very well for dry skin. There is also not really a scent to this, so sensitive skin would like this as well. Definitely my new holy grail. Works excellent under makeup since it is water based. Really am enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would just based on the texture of the gel. I'm 34 years old, and do have dry sensitive acne prone skin, and this has not broke me out (I usually get breakouts immediately if it's a product that doesn't work for my skin) Obviously everyone's skin is different, but I really think this is a great product, at least get a sample or try it in store. Really starting to love dermalogica products. I have their hydro blur primer, and multi active toner, both I absolutely love also." - ulta 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

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

I've been using this product for about a week now, my overall skins appearance has been amazing! YouthQuake is a gel - crème formula made to hydrate, smooth , plump, as well as exfoliate. One main ingredient is pineapple enzyme, this is a key ingredient for the exfoliating process. A few other benefits are beautiful glowing complexion, smooth, and more plump skin! It has a very faint scent of pineapple, it is so faint that you honestly can't even smell it once it's applied. So, I really don't think it will be a problem for even sensitive skin. It's a faint pineapple scent nothing over the top, it's perfect in my personal opinion and I normally stay away from any scents in my skincare products. However i think even sensitive skin will be fine. The crème has a yellow tint to it, it's such a buttery creamy texture I'm in love with it! This product has done everything it has claimed to do and more. Also, after applying I no longer have to use certain steps in my makeup routine this product has made the best canvas for application of flawless makeup. It honestly feels like my pores have been rather smooth and not as visually noticeable as prior to me using YouthQuake. As for the hydration the main ingredient is sodium hylochloqrite which is like hyaluronic acid. With the main overall ingredient being pineapple water. I can say that this product in my personal experience this is such an overall wonderful multitasking product, which is hands down a product that I would highly recommend to everyone! You won't regret it that's for sure!! Remember even if you have normally/oily skin you should still apply moisturizer and implement in your daily/every other day use of skincare routine. I again am so in love with this product! Nicole A." - sephora user

Bioclear Face Cream by Jan Marini

"Jan Marini Biogylcolic Bioclear Cream is recommended for those who have acne, which is not the case for me. So why do I use it? Because it has the amazing ability unlike any other night cream I've used to resurface the skin's texture and improve the appearance of any wrinkles or previous sun damage. Since I've been using it I receive more compliments on my skin than ever before. I have spent hundreds on dollars on all the best face creams and none compares with Jan Marini's Biogylcolic Bioclear. Just make sure you allow your face to adjust, I began using it every other night with Jan Marini's transformation cream (another great product) and now I can use it alone every night. It will feel tingly or prickly at first application (how you know its working) and then your skin will get used to it. " - dermstore user

"This moisturizer is unlike anything I have ever tried before. It balances the natural oils of my face to provide moisture without feeling heavy or causing my face to look like an oil slick within an hour. I'm also so happy and surprised that I didn't have to go through my usual 2 week adjustment period where my face is a hot mess of irritation and break outs while it adjusts to a new product! After washing my face, this gel/cream easily sinks into my skin and leaves my face feeling comfortable, nourished, and fresh. After using this moisturizer for about 3 months, my skin looks incredibly healthy, and is noticeably more balanced. It hasn't over-corrected like some moisturizers intended for combo/oily skin where I need to add moisture back, or even worse, where my skin reacts by producing more oil. There are definitely anti-aging benefits to this moisturizer, and although it's not the main reason why I am so happy with the product, I certainly love this benefit as well! This is exactly what I've been looking for, and my skin has never been happier or looked better!Aside from the product itself, I must take a moment to rave about the brand- Tatcha truly cares about their customers, what goes in to their products, and how their brand can impact the world for the better. It is complete beauty from the inside out. « less" - tatcha.com user

Phytoclear Clarifying Moisturizer by cosmedix

"This product is for normal to oily skin. However, Im 51 years with normal to dry. Ive used it in my younger years full strength, but alternated between this toner and their other toner called Benefit Balance which is also great btw. Nowadays, I still love this product but use it in a slightly different way to avoid getting dried out. After spraying the cotton ball, I wipe my face neck and dcolletage with the product to remove all residue which you can see. I leave it on for 1-2 minutes then splash my face with water to dilute. You could also dilute the spray bottle with 1/2 water if you have normal to dry skin. The lactic acid is a great exfoliator and my skin looks more even toned with regular use. Its also great to have on hand to disinfect before and after whiteheads extractions. Less" - Overstock.com user
