Great moisturizer

I was able to try 15ml of this product for free, but I'm writing of my own opinion.As a former skincare therapist I was thoroughly impressed by this product. I tried it for a few days myself, but as I have oily skin I knew I would get a break out or two as this is far too rich for my skin type. I gave the rest to my mother who has aging, dry skin to try and she loved it.My personal experience was that the smell was wonderful and not too strong. I used this 3 nights as a nighttime cream and my skin was so soft right after the application, and as I tend to be more on the reactive skin side of things I was surprised when my skin was very calm the next few mornings.Like I said, I gave the rest of the sample to my mother and she felt the same experiences I did and it was great for her skin type. I would purchase this for myself and use it as a neck and decollete cream.Really great product, I was very impressed. « less user

My skin feels so smooth!!

I have been using the Hydra-Essentiel Cream for the past 4 days and I and I have to say that this product is amazing. I have very dry cheeks and the skin on my head can get quite dry as well (I have alopecia), so I am always looking for products that will help me retain moisture without causing me to breakout. This cream may just be the new one I switch to. I've been using it at night before bed and immediately after putting it on my skin feels the smoothest it ever has. I wake up feeling almost as soft as after the immediate application. The true test came when I applied makeup because I can't usually see dry skin flakes on my cheeks and my foundation will clump up. After using this cream there was a significant decrease in the amount of dry skin visible under my foundation.As for the cream itself, it feels thick and luxurious but not heavy on the skin at all. It isn't greasy and feels amazing on application. I did find the scent to be a little strong for my own personal preferences but my partner loved it and said it smelled amazing when he got up close.Disclosure: I received this product free for testing purposes « less user

No, Just no. Overly scented, greasy, and breakouts

I received this product for free to try If I had paid for it, it would have been returned very quickly.I'll start with the scent. It has a very overpowering vaguely old floral scent that lingers. It gets stuck in your nose and won't leave. That right there is a deal breaker for me.Next, the formula is very, very thick, even more a cream. I have very dry skin, but this was too much even for me. It felt greasy and never fully absorbed. I tried applying the very minimum I could, and it still felt heavy, yet not hydrating. Not a comfortable feeling.Finally, the breakouts. Within 3 days of putting this on my skin I broke out. I am not prone to blemishes, so I was not expecting that at all. I didn't change anything about my skin care while trying this, except to swap out my regular cream with this one.Overall, I won't even be passing this on to someone else. It's in the bin. « less user

I have awful dry skin. I used to use coconut oil because it was so dry and nothing else worked, but it broke me out badly. I had flaky red patches of dry skin all over my chin and needed a fix. Someone at ultra recommended this to me. I was hesitant because of the price but I love it. It has completely restored my skin. It is moisturized, smooth and looking much more even and less irritated. My boyfriend has even commented on how calm and smooth my skin looks. I've had it for a month and I love it. I use it twice a day and it's about 1/3 gone. I wish it was cheaper but it's worth it

I love this silky cream!

I have a very complicated problem skin: combination/acne prone but also dry around eye brow and centre of my nose and other few areas too. I thought it's for dry skin and worried it would be rich to a combination/oily/acne prone type of skin. But this is so moisturizing and quick absorbed yet not heavy cream. I almost finished the first jar and bot two more during 15% event. I usually used serum underneath and it gives me enough moisture throughout the day. And the price is unbeatable!!!!! I used to try different brands such as darphin and had to return for this for nearly half the price. I strongly recommend to who has similar skin type as I do and prefer rich (cream texture) but quick absorbed light cream. O
