"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
"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

"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

"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

"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 have been using Complete All Day Moisture Cream on my face since about the time I turned 30. I never worried about wrinkles until I turned the big 30! I wasn't taught to use this by my mother or sister. They never used anything like this cream. My sister still can't believe that I even use it when I go out side to do yard work and such. She says it will just sweat away but I put it on even when I am mowing for 3 hours. I have never been told much that I am pretty but I have people tell me how few wrinkles I have on my face! I won't go outside without it in the summer, winter, spring or fall. I start with the gentle foaming cleanser first thing in the morning let that dry and then put on my Compete moisture cream and I am ready to start my day. I love it!

"I've had rosacea for years and have been looking constantly for a product that would heal and improve the texture of my face which is inexpensive. I got tired with expensive rosacea products that even dried up my face and did not remedy the redness. I was hesitant to try products that had smell or the ones I would see on television. One day I finally decided to go to olay's website and took the test for the right product for your skin. The results gave me these 3 simple steps. At my age of 43, I do have fine lines, dryness/flakiness skin tone, dark spots...On the first day I used this product, my face started to flake..I still continued the next day and on the 3rd day....I SAW THE DIFFERENCE!!! MY SKIN BECAME FIRMER, THERE WAS A GLOW ON MY FACE AND THE REDNESS OF THE ROSACEA IS GONE!!!!! I've been using these products for a month now--and I am very HAPPY AND CONTENTED. Now I am no longer conscious and embarrass. My coworkers have noticed my face is much clearer and no more flaky dry skin :) « less" - drugstore.com user
"My mother has supremely dry skin, she has tried every brand moisturizer from Estee Lauder ..Clinique to Clarins...none helped and tons of money wasted without a result until now! My sister left this cream by accident at my moms so my mom tried it and told me it was better than her Clarins moisturizer and gave me an update on her skin just recently! This moisturizer is AmAZInG!! It keeps her skin really supple n soft and very hydrated the entire day! So good bye Clarins! When she told me this I was also on the lookout for a good moisturizer and my Estee Lauder one did no miracles for me..so I quickly went n purchased this! ok so I have uneven, combination skin which is more on the oily side... This gel is soooo amazing! I've been using it now for 3 weeks..no breakouts..no irritation n no oily skin, my skin looks healthier than ever and I love how soft it feels..I use this every night and the Garnier uv light lotion in the daytime, Garnier I cannot thank you enough for such an amazing and affordable product that delivers shockingly strong results..I am your customer for life...after years of searching my mom has found this n is so pleased and so am I. Please never ever discontinue this and ladies if u have any doubt about this...just try it...it's better than ANY OTHER department store moisturizer!! Lovvee this gel!

"~I'm IN LOVE with theBienfait Aqua Vital Lotion! I have extremely sensitive skin and it's the ONLY moisturizer I've ever been able to use.I have combination skin (slightly oily in the T-zone.) I've tried an immense amount of products just trying to find a moisturizer that wouldn't break me out and cause me to turn red and itch. I've even tried products that claim to have no perfumes, etc and even those caused me huge problems! The Bienfait is so light and has a very faint yet wonderful smell to it. Also, it has no SPF which is fabulous.I've never been able to use a moisturizer on my sensitive skin until now! I wouldn't consider the Bienfait to be an actual lotion. That's a bit misleading. It almost has a light, thin "watery" texture to it! My face just soaks it up leaving it smooth and hydrated! Thank you, thank you, thank you LANCOME!

"My sister has struggled with oily skin for years now. She went to a dermatologist who prescribed her various cleansers and moisturizers...nothing was working (some even made her MORE oily). I did some research and came across this product. Even with the positive reviews, I knew it was a shot in the dark because nothing ever worked. But this product has helped her oily skin so much! She likes the lightweight feel and it has a fresh scent that she enjoys! The moisturizer does NOT overly dry out her skin! Is her oil completely gone? No, not entirely. But it is more under control than it has ever been! I was hesitant with the price initially but it is worth every penny if you are struggling with oily skin! " - Sephora user
"I received this in the purchase with purchase just 4 days ago. I have been struggling with a bad rash, to the point of having blisters (from choosing the wrong sunscreen, other brand) on my face for a few months now. I have even gone to the dermatologist and plastic surgeons office to buy expensive creams trying to clear my face. I have been using this night and day since I received it. It is better than anything I have tried. I think it is my new must have both day and night cream. (The sunscreen in the day cream did not break me out; it s a little shiny and moist but after makeup and setting powder its fine) It's early to say, but I think my wrinkles look a little smother as well. I know my face is much brighter and the raw spots, pimple like blisters and redness are almost gone. I will re-review after I have used it longer on the wrinkle part. (Also, this does not "Roll off" my skin like some of the others do, feels a little sticky at first but soaks in well). Less" - clinique.com.my user
"Very true to the weightless boast, this is an extremely light moisturizer that has still done wonders for my dry skin. You definitely won't end up looking like an oil slick with this on! It even has slowly controlled particularly stubborn dry patches on my face and neck. I have used my usual primer while trying this out, but times where I have mainly worn this moisturizer under makeup has made a difference in texture and wear-time. Not bad at all, would love to try more from this brand." - sephora user

"After cleansing and toning, I massage this serum onto my face and let it sit for a minute or two before following with my moisturizer. This serum does exactly as promised. It illuminates and lightens dark spots. I have been using this for about a month now and I can already see the difference. I developed some dark spots above my cheekbones over the years, as I previously mentioned, due to sun damage, and have been searching for a magic potion to lighten them. I also have acne scars from my teenage years that have not diminished. I get so many compliments and questions about the makeup I use. It’s no makeup, its my skin. In order for your makeup to look flawless, you must start with a healthy looking base. This serum gives u just that. After a month of use, my skin is indeed brighter and more radiant. My dark spots have just now begun to lighten up along with my acne scars. I had some newer scars from a few hormonal blemishes that would usually lighten over a period of a few months. With this serum they are almost completely faded. It’s the deeper ones from my teenage years that are taking longer to budge. The manager at the La Prairie counter told me that it takes 12 weeks for any effective skincare cream to show results. If these are my 4 week results, I cannot wait to see the results in 8 more weeks. It absorbs quickly and you only need a tiny bit. Though the price may be overwhelming, the amount of uses you get out of this bottle justify the price. You only get one face that speaks millions before a word is said and we must take care of it. « less" - Bloomingdale's user

It has a soft silky texture and is very light on the skin when applied, absorbs nicely into the skin with no greasy aftermath. " - Debenhams user
"I have been using Estée Lauder serums for the past few years, since I've turned 30...the CP R and ANR to be specific. I have combination skin that's prone to breakouts so I've had some awful experiences with moisturizers, even gel moisturizers. However, at my last visit to the dermatologist, he suggested I start using a moisturizer. The ones sold in his office are double the price of this one and contain almost many similar beneficial ingredients so I went ahead and stuck with my trusted brand of choice. This is probably the only moisturizer that didn't make me oily, or cause a breakout, and it seems to be helping with my fine lines and overall skin texture. It wears very well under makeup and I like that it has more skin benefits than simply, moisturizing. I also like that it hydrates my combination skin but doesn't cause excess oiliness is my t-zones yet helps to moisturize the areas that are dry or flakey. Another winner from Estée Lauder. My grandmother, who is 76 and looks 60, swears by the brand and now I know why." - sephora user

"I have recently switched to the whole Clinique system. I use the 3 step routine for oily skin and this moisturizer and the even better spot treatment. This has absolutely evened out my skin tone. I have hyper pigmentation due to slight acne and my face is lighter and darker in spots generally. I feel like this product has even out my skin tone so much that I no longer need heavy makeup to make my skin more even looking. I just use a light foundation now and feel confident that I don't look a complete mess bare faced. Again, I will say this product is an exfoliant and works in conduction with a routine that includes exfoliation on a regular basis. I think sometimes people do not achieve results when you don't use a other exfoliating products to help this work. I sometimes use this product at night because the sunscreen in it is a little heavy and makes my face a little more oily during really hot days. I use a lighter weight sunscreen on those days.

"I've always been interested in La Roche-Posay products, but I was never sure if they were worth the price tag. After trying the Anthelios daily moisturizing cream, I definitely think La Roche-Posay is more than worth it. The daily moisturizer is fragrance-free which I prefer for facial products. It includes SPF 15, but doesn't have the scent or heavy feel of a sunscreen. I live in AZ, so SPF 15 can only work for me in the winter months, but I have really enjoyed using this moisturizer in this colder season. I have been using it before makeup application each morning and it goes on light and doesn't feel greasy. It provides enough moisturize without feeling greasy or heavy throughout the day. In addition, I need just a small amount, so the 3.4oz bottle will last through the season. I really like this moisturizer and would purchase in the future." - ulta user
"I brought this on a special and wow. This stuff does what it says. I normally get Burts' Bees Radiance with Royal Jelly, but lately I've been low on cash so I switched to Aveeno due to their bargains. This does the same thing as the more natural stuff, plus it's from Aveeno a brand I can trust and won't harm my skin. This cream is perfect for those of us with pale skin and suffer from redness or sunburning effects. I wasn't able to find the one with 30spf, but 15spf is better than none. For those who are trying to go for a more Victorian look (not going for the tanning fad)this helps to protect the skin from harsh lightening soaps that dry out the skin. Also it helped calm my skin from flaring into a red tomato (you know what I'm taking about, rosacea sufferers). I'm not looking like I'm blushing anymore and even gotten compliments from everyone especially from my young students (who always asked why I was always red). My eyes even improved because of it. Amazing what this little bottle does. I once had tiny wrinkles around my eyes, as well as dark circles for not sleeping too well. This stuff helped with that. It's not an over night thing though it took three days to see the wrinkles going away and the dark circles gone for good. I also love to use this on my arms, especially on the elbows (don't know why this area of the body seems to trouble every woman on the planet). My elbows would get ashy during winter but this stuff helps with that too. This is a must have product. It did a lot for me, but be conscious this may not give the same result for everyone so it may only do for you what it says directly on the box. These are just results that I've gotten personally. Anyways I hope Aveeno never stops making great facial products that are affordable. « less" - Walgreens user

"I want to start out by saying that I have literally never written a skincare/beauty review before. I have the worlds most tempermental skin and I am allergic and break out from everything. Chances are if it says for sensitive skin I am still allergic to it. On top of that I get stress hives, and have discoloration from past cystic acne in highschool. It's super fun being me, clearly. I have gone for photo resurfacing that is super expensive to get rid of scaring, derma roll, do literally everything that will make my skin clear but not upset it too much. As I turn 30, I am at a cross roads. My skin is dry AF from the winter, so I use coconut moisturizer which doesn't actually help get rid of it, it just makes it feel better. I have some breakouts from going off of birth control, so I use differin which totally dries me out. Also, as I am getting older my skin is thinner so totally more uneven from who knows what. After going through the most boring list of all of my ailments, I cannot express to you how much of a godsend this moisturizer is. I don't even use differin anymore, my acne is magically gone and I'm super stressed out too which is a true test. My skin is SO much more even, like no makeup on a first date even, not hanging around the apartment even. My skin is considerably softer and feels totally healthy. Also, I itchy pretty easily and frequently and I feel much more comfortable in my skin so to speak. I am also purchasing this for body, because how could I not? I literally use only this, and splash some water on my face at night and in the morning. I am not recommending that soko double the price, but if they did I would pay it without a single question. After spending thousands of dollars on treatments, medication, products, you name it. I am SO thrilled that this super cute pink tube has made me feel comfortable in my skin again. I cannot recommend this enough to really anyone, but especially people who are battling a little bit of everything at once, whether it be redness, acne, eczema, uneven skin. My skin responded so well to this, and it is so nourishing, I certainly hope that other people buy this and it gives them the comfort and confidence in their skin that this has given me. « less" - sokoglam.com user

"I received this product as a sample with my first Clinique order, which was the Acne Solutions system. It came in a very small package, like a little envelope, so I didn't really get the excitement at first. After a couple days, maybe two weeks or something, I finally decided to try it because I still had not gotten completely rid of the oiliness in my face (though the 3 steps of the Acne Solutions really reduced it by that time). This is AWESOME. The second I put it on my face, I could see the difference - and not a small one, a BIG difference. It looked and FELT as if I never had problems with oiliness. Of course, I immediately came to the website and placed a new order with this hydrator in it. I'm so happy with this product, it is my TRUE FAVORITE Clinique product, though it's not meant to treat acne, which is my main concern. But still, it is a great addition to your daily routine, since it gives you that healthy, fresh, matte look that lasts for hours - seriously, HOURS. After this, I like to apply the Super City Block SPF 40, which I received as a gift in a local store. Gonna write a review on that one also!

I am very particular about what ingredients and combinations of ingredients I put on my skin given I am prone to stress breakouts and am somewhat sensitive. Until this moisturizer, I could only use skinceuticals b5 gel- any other moisturizer, no matter how supposedly clean and noncomedogenic it was, would cause or worsen breakouts well beyond what could be considered a purge phase.

"I brought this on a special and wow. This stuff does what it says. I normally get Burts' Bees Radiance with Royal Jelly, but lately I've been low on cash so I switched to Aveeno due to their bargains. This does the same thing as the more natural stuff, plus it's from Aveeno a brand I can trust and won't harm my skin. This cream is perfect for those of us with pale skin and suffer from redness or sunburning effects. I wasn't able to find the one with 30spf, but 15spf is better than none. For those who are trying to go for a more Victorian look (not going for the tanning fad)this helps to protect the skin from harsh lightening soaps that dry out the skin. Also it helped calm my skin from flaring into a red tomato (you know what I'm taking about, rosacea sufferers). I'm not looking like I'm blushing anymore and even gotten compliments from everyone especially from my young students (who always asked why I was always red). My eyes even improved because of it. Amazing what this little bottle does. I once had tiny wrinkles around my eyes, as well as dark circles for not sleeping too well. This stuff helped with that. It's not an over night thing though it took three days to see the wrinkles going away and the dark circles gone for good. I also love to use this on my arms, especially on the elbows (don't know why this area of the body seems to trouble every woman on the planet). My elbows would get ashy during winter but this stuff helps with that too. This is a must have product. It did a lot for me, but be conscious this may not give the same result for everyone so it may only do for you what it says directly on the box. These are just results that I've gotten personally. Anyways I hope Aveeno never stops making great facial products that are affordable. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-7705923534873452980-full" data-show="-7705923534873452980-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - Walgreens user
"I have been using this product for I don't know how long. My mom got me started on Olay when I was in my early 20's. I have been using complete for several years. I will turn 50 in August and I believe that it has helped keep my skin younger looking. I don't have all the fine lines and wrinkles that even my younger friends have. Oh there are a few, but not that many. We went on vacation and I had to go to the store to get some because I forgot it at home. My husband said "It's only a week. Can't you go that long without it?" I just gave him a look and went to the store. I don't like going a day without it. Best product I have ever used. It is light weight and non greasy.

"Not perfect, but I've never found better (and I've tried MANY sunscreens). Feels more like a coconut-scented moisturizer going on, sinks in ok without being terribly greasy, with a slight sheen to the finish. Wears well under makeup and acts almost like a primer in how it grips foundation, but even on its own, it imparts a little "something extra" in terms of brightening and satiny sheen. Does leave my sensitive skin slightly red. But major points for not exacerbating my acne like every other sunscreen I've ever tried, even those labeled for acne, and for functioning very well as sun protection -I never burn and never reapply. It also has hyaluronic acid and moisturizes fairly well throughout the day, but performs best layered over a vitamin C serum which helps to lock in moisture. (It works especially well with Image's own vitamin C serum, which is almost like a light moisturizer itself.) " - dermstore user
"If you’re looking for a THICK, creamy, soft, super hydrating moisturizer: THIS IS IT! I opened the jar and touched it, and before it ever even hit my face, I said “Woah!” out loud because it actually had some push-back bounciness- so good! Then I dabbed the *tiniest* bit on my fingers and spread it over my face, and it just MELTED into the skin, and made my dry skin feel sooo supple!!! Aaaaah! Seriously, I had some harsh lines that were starting to form on my forehead because my skin was so dry for some reason. I was thiiiiis close to going in for some Botox when my jar arrived. This cream somehow was the right cocktail to quench the thirst of my sad wrinkles. Those bad boys have smoothed out so well that I can put off going under the needle, and just keep slathering this stuff on! Haha! I feel bad that I pushed every other moisturizer aside- for good!It has no filmy or greasy residues, and I have had ZERO issues with it pilling, rolling, or getting gummy. (HUGE pet peeve of mine) I think it doesn’t have these issues because it actually sinks into the skin and doesn’t just sit on top of it- it doesn’t feel heavy. It just makes your skin better (once it melts in)!Now, I have dry/combination skin. So I’m not sure how it would be for someone with oily skin. Maybe only as a nighttime treatment? I’d worry about potential greasiness if they used it on their oiliest areas right before makeup, then went out for the day & the skin produced its own natural oils on top of this super supple moisture. I just don’t know! I can slather this on, put on my (liquid) foundation, not use any setting powders, and look luminous, supple, and natural-skinned.Also- If you’re curious between this and the Drink of H2O Moisturizer: This is a THICK cream (I can’t even call it a lotion!). H2O is almost the consistency of like a hair gel. This (for me at least) sinks into the skin immediately, great for dry skin, could be greasy for oily skin? H2O leaves a bit of a film behind on my skin, and can pull under makeup, but is nice in general before bed. Moving forward, I won’t repurchase the H2O because this First Step Prep moisturizer does it all for me. And it does it better (for my skin type). Less" - tartecosmetics.com user
"I had researched this product on the website and then went to consult my macy's Clinique consultant prior to buying. I have very sensitive skin that is combination oily with redness that can flair up due to temperature, allergies, food, the list goes on. So I was interested in this combo kit so I could see how they interacted before having to pay for the larger sized face wash, etc. I love these products and would totally recommend this as a starter kit for those who are new to this line. It's not a miracle cure for me as my skin is temperamental but it has really improved the feel of my skin and overall skin tone. The cleanser is really soothing and makes my face feel clean despite my face leaning on the oily side at times. I would recommend using a makeup remover since this cleanser is great but sometimes can't get all the makeup off unless I do a second wash. The lotion is a dream and feels super hydrating without feeling heavy. Plus it has a nice cooling sensation and between the cleanser and lotion my face feels wonderful. Some days my skin visibly is reduced in redness and other days I only see a slight difference. I think it has less to do with the product, I even make sure the water is tepid as per instructions, and more to do with my skin and its reaction to the environment. The primer is nice but I've never consistently used a primer to give good feedback. It goes on nicely and I follow it up with the redness solution powder. I do notice that I tend to be less oily if I use the primer with the powder as opposed to just using the powder. Overall, I love this line and am so happy to have done the research and been additionally helped by my macy's instore contact. « less" - clinique.com user
"Everything everyone's saying is true - this stuff's the real deal. Truly changed my life, as cliche as it sounds. My skin is incredibly dry, sensitive, and acne prone.... but when I moisturize too often, it breaks out. Not anymore! I put this moisturizer on as much as I want, my skin has never looked more clear, even toned, moisturized and PLUMP in my lifeeeeee. I love you Tarte. I wasn't paid or sent this product fyi. After trying soooo many moisturizers (mostly the ridiculously expensive high end ones) and returning them when they fell flat... I feel absolutely no need/want to try out any new ones. It's love yall. If this helps as well - I use this moisturizer after toning with the Son&Park Beauty Water then the May Coop Raw Sauce. You should know.. I love these two products just as much as this moisturizer. So. A lot. Definitely recommend in conjunction. If possible. Moisturizer is still excellent, regardless! -Perfect as a makeup base bc it is lightweight, dries quickly, and not sticky once dried. -Both a day and night cream as well. Even after exfoliating and washing my super dry skin, all I need after is this moisturizer. No tight or itchy skin whatsoever. Which is a definite first in moisturizers for me. Even the super thick emollient ones weren't enough. This guy's enough. Somehow. and still lightweight. What! Buy it. Srsly. Especially if you powered through reading this entire review.. you deserve it. :) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
