This is an excellent moisturizer for those with dehydrated skin. Mine is oily as well and I didn't notice this caused any problems. I usually used it before bedtime during the colder months and it worked really well. I would wake up with smooth and soft skin.
Although this is an excellent moisturizer, I find it to be overly expensive (around $50 in Europe) so I will not be repurchasing it, especially since I have found several that are equally good, but for half the price (namely Avene and La Roche Posay)
Before I was aware of product ingredients and how crucial they really are to our health, I went ahead and purchased this at clinique because they convinced me it was so moiturizing. It really isn't! After some time my face aged dramatically and I freaked out! I am 28 c'mon ya know? My face looked 5+ years older maybe even older than that so I stopped using it and started doing research! I thank this product and clinique for making me see the light! I became more aware of my ingredients and I dropped everything and started washing my face with water and honey (YES HONEY)..since it was summer and my skin already had moisture I didn't need added moisturizer. It takes 28 days for your cells to regenerate so I did this regimen for over a month and my face changed dramatically!!! It became better and better the more I didn't use products so I went organic. I still get pimples but those are treatable. I suggest you go see your own dermatologist for products that work specifically for you. What I did was buy the clarisonic and it changed my skin and especially pores.
great for hydrating skin!
I've been using this product for over 2 years already, but recently my cheeks have become a bit more dry than usual. Its great for hydrating but doesn't do much on moisturizing all day! But I do use this every night after the shower!
This product feels like silk on your skin! This would be great used as a primer, your skin will feel so silky smooth. Downside: Very expensive for how much you get. $34 for 1.7oz.
Good for Oily Skin Types
I have dry/combo skin and found this moisturizer to be too light for me (in general all gel type moisterizers are too light for my skin), but I decided to use it up anyway. I liked how refreshing it was, but it sort of left my skin sticky. By the time I got to the end of the container my skin had developed dry patches and had become quite red, so I had to switch back to a more nourishing moisturizer. If you have oily skin this would probably work best for you.
This stuff really works!
I get my upper lip threaded every other week, every now and then when i get it done my skin gets dry and starts peeling. When I use this product it instantly moisturizes and literally repairs my skin. I used it over night and the next morning I saw huge difference!
It also comes in a form of a spray so you don't have carry around this jar of amazingness everywhere!
Can't live without this moisturizer. Leaves my face feeling moisturized every night without feeling sticky or like I have a layer over my skin. I think the price is fair considering the product is amazing and the jar lasts for a long time!
I love this! It is extremely moisturizing, but has a light formula so that there is no residue! That is one of the most important things about a moisturizer is that there is a perfect amount of moisture without a heavy layer of formula left on your skin. It does not break me out like most lotions do, so this must be a great product. Loveeee <3
I absolutely love this! I have incredibly dry/sensitive skin and this works amazingly in the winter time. It is freezing where I live and the winter makes my face dry-er than normal but the moisture surge instantly moisturizes my face and leaves me with a smooth base for my makeup.
I have really dry skin and this gives my skin the quick burst of moisture I need. i use it in the morning right after my daily routine. My husband also uses it after shaving something too!
