I bought this product on a whim, without knowing anything about it beforehand. The brand is a trusted one, and it seemed like a good bet it would work. I was delighted to find that it does exactly what it claims to do: it moisturizes very well, and leaves your skin incredibly soft and supple in the morning. It's neither heavy-feeling nor heavily-scented, which is an added bonus. Absorption It doesn't disappear into my skin the moment I apply it. To me, this is a good thing, as I like to be able to put night cream where I need it. It does really "sink in" and gives me wonderful results in the morning. One thing I have noticed is that you need to apply it fairly evenly to get consistent results. Doesn't Clog Pores I haven't noticed any breakouts with this product. Effectiveness I have very sun-damaged skin under my eyes and the tops of my cheekbones. Skin-lightening treatments have left the skin there extremely dry and with an odd texture that's frustrating to deal with. This product moisturizes without irritating the treated skin, which I love.
