In the summer months, I use Arcona's Magic White Ice under my sunscreen, but for the dry, Midwest winters I need something a little heavier. I was using L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream the last few years, but the scent was starting to get to me. I thought that I should look around and (hopefully) find something a little more affordable with less of a scent. I've got to say -- I really love this moisturizer. It is rich and thick but doesn't feel heavy on the skin. My face just sucks up that moisture like I've never put lotion on before! I do feel that it is a bit difficult to distribute evenly all over my face because it so quickly absorbed. So, I spray the Caudalie Beauty Elixir (which really helps shrink my pores) on first and it smooths on perfectly. Also, I am able to use less moisturizer and my skin looks dewy and refreshed for hours after applying. The scent is so light I hardly notice it; it smells fresh and light. And as an added bonus it is far less expensive than the other moisturizers that I have been using! Love it!
I've been using this for over a month now and don't really like it. It's not bad or anything, but maybe just not for my skin. My face is left a little greasy and my dry areas are still dry. After I finish my tube I won't be buying anymore. Maybe this is best for extremely dry skin types as I am more combination type.
