Moisturizing Cream Reviews (4)
I first discovered this moisturizer a year ago when I was suffering the fallout from a particularly nasty case of contact dermatitis. I needed a moisturizer that was fragrance-free and safe for sensitive skin. The first time I applied this to my face, it immediately stung and burn something fierce.
I thought that the reaction was due to the existing contact dermatitis. A couple months later, after the dermatitis had healed from a round of Desonide cream (and then several weeks of no skincare products at all), I tried the cream on my arms and legs. No bad reactions, so I tried it again on my face. Got the same reaction: stinging, burning, and redness. Not only that, but it gave me contact dermatitis.
Turns out, this DOES have fragrance (along with harsh preservatives), despite what the label says. Any type of synthetic fragrance will cause me to have stinging red irritation, so this brand openly lies about its ingredients on the labels.
I can still use it on my trunk, arms and legs (which are not sensitive), and I only do so to not waste the expensive product however I will NEVER again purchase ANY products from this brand.
If you have sensitive or ultra-sensitive skin, beware and consider looking at other brands and giving this one a miss.
My absolute favourite cream! Leaves my skin so soft and hydrated through the day and night, love love love!
When I first starting using this I really liked it, but it's not moisturizing enough. It feels more like a sealant than a moisturizer. It doesn't irritate my skin though and it doesnt pill
Beware of products that go viral on the internet, because not all of them are suited for your face! This broke me out like crazy, giving me comedones all over my face. The texture is thick and silicone-y, which makes it perfect for a body moisturizer though.
