I love the texture of this gel-cream and the cooling-soothing effect it has on my skin, but something didnt mesh right with my skin. I have skin on the drier side and i think i need a cream with a bit more moisture.
I am a lover of most all philosophy products but was alittle disappointed with this product. It left my skin feeling oily and doesnt have the freshest of smells.
At first I was hesitant about this cream as it was 40 $ CND. I had received a sample from Sephora and loved it, so I had to purchase the full sized product. As soon as I got it I had to use it. I love the light, airy gel texture. I love that you don't need to use a lot as a little of this cream goes a long way. I also found it to be very moisturizing especially on my dry spots.I got a few breakouts within the first week of using it. I think it's the pH level of your skin adjusting and that's perhaps the reason why. After a week my skin became clear of breakouts. I also found it gave your face a light shimmer without it looking shinny and oily.
I didn't get very long to try out this moisturizer. I was really looking forward to giving it a dry. All of its amazing claims seemed to make it worth the steep price point. Finally, I broke down and picked it up at Sephora. After using it just one time (before I went to bed), I woke up with 3 zits and Jupiter making home on my face. You can't imagine how frustrated it made me to believe I paid $34 USD for a breakout!
I gave it to my mom and she hasn't had any problems, although she also says she hasn't noticed anything special about it yet.
Overall, I really loved the gel-like texture of this but it broke me out so I have no appreciation for it, but I have heard many people rave about it, so perhaps it worth giving a try.
