Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin
Love the product, packaging could use work
I have used this moisturizer for the past two years. It is a fantastic product for my skin. Upon the first use, I was in love. My skin did not have to adjust, like with some moisturizers. In fact, I used up my first bottle very quickly. Love it so much, I have to regulate my use!
My only complaint is the packaging. The bottle is deceivingly tall; there is less than half that actually contains moisturizer. When you're out, that's it. Normally I have a clue that I will soon run out if a product; not true with this one. And because of the way the bottle is constructed, you can't get the last bit out of the container. Again, normally I would employ tricks (unscrewing the top, storing the bottle upside down) to get the remaining product out of the bottle, but they don't work.
Now I only allow myself 1 squirt per usage to ensure it lasts longer.
I do recommend the smaller travel size containers. These typically hold 1oz and the "full size" is 1.7oz. Often you can get them as a deal/package/ or add-on with the face wash for a great price. Plus, you can actually empty the container.
Great for oily skin
This is truly the best moisturizer I have ever used that doesn't make my skin look greasy. I have oily skin and have never found a moisturizer for daytime that didn't make me shiny. This is it! It dries to a soft matte. It isn't dying, just natural looking. I got this as a sample but, I'm ordering it and can't imagine using anything else, now!
This is by far the best moisturizer I have found. It absorbs very quickly and is not oily at all. I find that it leaves my skin feeling very soft and healthy.
I wish they sold it in larger containers!
My Mom sent this to me as part of a gift...I Love It. Love the texture...it is perfect for my combinations skin, moisturizes, without making too oily...in the morning, I mix it with some tinted moisturizer...perfect. At night, I use alone after cleansing my face. Love it then as well. Some have complained about the smell, I like it. Kind of lavendery? If that's a word. And it has lasted quite a while. I received as part of Christmas present. I am re-ordering now.
Product Great, Packaging could use work
I love using this moisturizer, however I have issues with the pump no longer working while there is still product in the bottle. I tried turning the bottle upside down, even putting a little water in the bottle and shaking things around hoping not to waste what was left. I don't mind paying a little more to have a good quality moisturizer, however I also want to be able to efficiently use the product that I paid for.
Liking my Combination Skin again!
I received a small sample of this along with the Purifying Cleanser, and have made a note to pick up more ...before my little sample runs out!
The moisturizer is lovely to use in morning or evening as a step right after cleansing -- it is light, comes out in a small amount, and that's all it takes. I got the formula for combination skin, because products can seem to be geared toward either oily or dry complexions -- this works so well on ALL areas of my face, it never lets me down.
Thank you for making me a Fab woman who can try out the new products even Before I go shopping! I will definitely be looking for this to come back into stock :)
Great if you have a few oily patches
I love this. I don't break out the way I use too. I have a oily forehead and now it feels so much better. Thanks so much for putting this out. At 34 years old I feel normal again!!!
Not The Best Product Out There
I have used many different products for my sensitive combo skin. I use BE products for my makeup so I thought I would try this moisturizer as well as some other skincare products. This moisturizer is very disappointing. I found I could not use it twice a day every day. It started to irritate my skin, making it turn red and hurt. I would have to stop using it for a few days and not use another moisturizer, or use something completely different. I love some of the other products that I use. The Cell Renwal, Moisture Defense Creme for the eyes, and the Wrinkle Corrector are fabulous products!! This one, however, I will not me using anymore.
I received a sample of this and found the product to be disappointing-- primarily because of the overwhelming smell. Yuck! The scent is strong and doesn't go away. It lingers and actually gave me a headache. Wasn't a fan of the consistency either as I found it a bit greasy and thick for something I'd want to use on my face. I've been struggling to find a lightweight facial moisturizer with natural ingredients that doesn't have a weird smell or fragrance to it. Guess my search will continue as this is one of the few BE products I can't recommend.
:( I am so horribly sad about this product. I have used BE make-up for YEARS and since I was looking for a better face wash system I thought BE products would be the best place to look. I used the cleanser, moisturizer and night serum for a full week and really loved using it! Until the sixth night I started noticing the skin around my eyes and neck felt slightly tender. I woke up the next morning the find my face covered with a red, bumpy, itchy, rash. I couldn't believe that is was my face wash and thought maybe my detergent because I had just washed me sheets, so I used the product that morning. The rash got worse! This is the only product I have used on my face and my neck, and I am noticing that the rash stopped right at the spot where I put the moisturizer. It has been a full day without use and the rash hasn't gone away and still itches. I have been taking benadryl which is helping. I wouldn't say I have extremely sensitive skin, because I have never had a product effect me this bad, but I don't have the toughest skin either. All I have to say it test the product first! It took a couple of days for me to be effected by it! I am SO thankful that I tried this our WAY before my wedding day in March I would have been a wreck if I had to walk down the aisle like this!
