Full disclosure- I was able to buy this cream and a full size eye cream on sale for 23.00$
Were they both being sold for full price I doubt I would have picked them up. That being said if you are looking for an intensive moisturizer for mature skin this is a nice option. The regular price of around 40-35$ is also pretty reasonable for what seems to be a high quality moisturizer.
I have been looking for a moisturizing cream for fine lines around my eyes and mouth for awhile now. I have sensitive skin, prone to dry patches and redness. I'm also 39- which can seem like a hard age to find just the right products.
After using this cream twice daily for two weeks I can say that my skin does feel slightly softer. The cream has a cooling sensation when you apply it and a very light perfumey smell. I prefer fragrance-free, but the smell is subtle enough that it wasn't irritating.
I found it a bit heavy for my needs and over two weeks noticed a few small zits pop up where I was applying it. Because of this I switched to using it as a night cream instead of under makeup. I do use it on my neck and forehead and would recommend it for any areas that need extra moisture.
This cream from Neostrata is for skin tones with wrinkles. I have a few on my forehead and around the eye area that I wanted to take care of. I noticed the cream is VERY hydrating.
A little TOO hydrating for me personally...as it took a while to absorb when applied before bed, and too heavy to put under makeup (especially bb cream, foundation, etc) Good if you don't want to wear makeup, or want to really hydrate your skin.
Definitely because of how heavy it is, my skin was moisturized, and not dry at all.
There is a slight cooling sensation to the cream when it is applied. The hydration lasts all day.
My face actually appeared glossy, oily all day, once again something personally I didn't like...
The cream is blue in color
but comes on the skin clear somehow :) which is pretty cool!
I don't have enough wrinkles to need that much hydration to my skin.
Really good for dull, aging skin that needs extra hydration as this cream truly is for dehydrated skin.
