I only used this three times before I just couldn't put up with the smell any longer. It smells so awful. Really chemically, like a musky aqueous cream or something. Those 3 times, I THINK it moisturised my face alright. Just the SMELL was intolerable.

I have been using this moisturiser since a few months now, I have combination skin and an oily T zone. The good news is that it doesn't make me oilier and goes on really light and makes my skin soft and smooth. It is a good daily moisturiser and it is hydrating and light at the same time, it doesn't clog pores and does what it claims. It is quite a steal at its price. I would continue using this as long as my skin responds to it and it works for me. The only bad bit is the smell which is funny, but doesn't last beyond 10 mins of application. I love that it is made of natural ingredients.

I have combination skin and when my skin is a little dry it does the job. The only thing is that the smell isn't great and if you have dry skin, it definitely won't be rich enough as the consistency is fairly watery and thin. For everyday use, it works well.

My skin type is oily combination. this moisturizer is just ok to me. It hydrates my skin quite well without leaving greasy layer. However my T zone starts to produce oil after a few hours. I've been using it for over 4 months but I see little improvement. The ingredients are friendly but the smell is horrible.

I did. It like this product, I found it did the opposite of what it was meant to do and my skin around my eyebrows and forehead went dry, scaly, red and itchy. I am not allergic to anything so this was unusual and I had to stop using it. Highly disappointed as many other simple products work wonderfully.

I found this moisturiser to perfect for over night use with my oily skin. It helps to soften my skin and get rid of any dry patches I may have without making my T-zone overly oily like many other mosturisers I have tried.

I've only been using this for a few weeks but I can already say it's a product I will continue to buy. I have combination skin and this moisturiser suits my skin perfectly as it is replaces any moisture lost from cleansing without making my skin feel oily. Plus you only need a couple of pea sized blobs for your whole face so it will last for ages.

Bought this for going on holiday as I have dry skin. Good for hydrating skin but separate moisturiser needed for the eye area as it doesn't stop dry skin from forming on eyelids and under the eye. Didn't cause a build-up of oil and it kept skin hydrated for multiple hours - didn't need reapplying. Would buy again as it is handy to have.

Really good for sensitive skin! Some moisturisers can make my skin sting but this product really soothed my skin. It left my skin glowing after only a few times using it. Doesn't have a great smell but it's the only moisturiser I am happy with now, and it's really affordable.

Great product! Does what it says on the tin - it's hydrating and nourishing for dry/ageing skin but do not use it with oily skin. Is better for sensitive skin than the rich moisturiser. Would and have bought again!

At first I hated this. It seemed to dry out my skin, so I didn't use it. However, recently I decided to try again and its amazing! It didn't dry my skin out whatsoever, and didn't sit on my face, but actually sank in. It gave a perfect base for my makeup- My face looked super dewy and nice, and I got a lot of compliments! Feels amazingly soft, I just wish there was more!

This product doesn't get enough recognition for itself!! Its amazing for everyday use and helps my skin because I sometimes get flakey bits on my skin. This product clears it up so well!! I use it after toning with the Simple Toner. Would definitely recommend!!

I really like this product and continue to use it. I have sensitive skin so many products irritate my skin but I find this one is perfect for my skin, it doesn't leave my skin irritated or red. It does what it says on the bottle and is very light weight so you almost can not feel it on your skin.
