Note: This review is not for the Oil-Free version - there is an oil free version, and those with acne prone skin, I would suggest trying that instead.
Ingredients: aqua, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol, polysorbate 60, PEG-150 stearate, steareth-20, stearic acid, glyceryl monostearate, cyclopentasiloxane, palmitoyl oligopeptide (and) palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, leuconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate, rosa canina (rose hip) seed oil, rosa rubiginosa (rose hip) seed oil, ubiquinone, tocopherol, cetyl alcohol, hippophae rhamnoids oil (sea buckthron oil), camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract
First of all, as you can see from the ingredients Joe Fresh's skincare products are not all natural. But a majority of the ingredients are natural, and they are "free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances and synthetic dyes". The ingredients to me, are pretty good, although I wish that some of the ingredients like rose hip seed oil and green tea leaf extract were further up on the list.
About my skin: I have dry skin, I don't really have large pores or acne issues, just a few pimples every once in a while. My under eye area is VERY prone to milia. I am 25 years old and starting to notice some fine lines under my eyes and on my forehead, so I am starting to be more concerned about using anti-aging products.
This moisturizer has a very faint citrus scent. I personally don't like the smell very much. It's not a bad scent, but to me, citrus scented things remind me of cleaning products for kitchen and washrooms...
This cream feels much like the night cream, only lighter. It has a light texture, not a thick cream, consistency I would describe almost like a cream-gel. Putting it on my face feels refreshing and very hydrating, and it is quickly absorbed, doesn't leave a tacky/sticky feeling, doesn't make my face feel greasy throughout the day. Even though I have dry skin, there are many moisturizers I have tried that would either make me greasy within an hour, or would not be hydrating enough. One thing though, as a day cream, I wish that this had spf in it! It is SO important to me to wear spf everyday, but I hate having to layer on so many different products all the time.
I have been using this, along with some other products from their skincare line for over a month now, and my skin looks smoother and more radiant, although I don't think it has made any difference with the fine lines. Overall I really like this moisturizer, and I think it is a good price for what you get, and I will most likely be repurchasing this!
