    Deep, calming hydration has been my quest. I have a super-dry, hyper-sensitive (not acne, but allergy/eczema-prone) complexion & after many years using the Clinique 3-Step products, I developed a sudden nasty intolerance. I've been looking for a replacement for a very long time. A British beauty blogger suggested Boots' "Expert" line. I couldn't believe the price. (Boots is a mega-pharmacy in the UK & this is their house brand.) I picked up the eye cream first & that went well, so I bought the toner, serum & moisturizer. I tried each product for a week, separately, to make sure I could tolerate them individually. So, now I wash my face w/Cetaphil, use Boots' "Expert Sensitive Hydrating" toner, serum, moisturizer & eye cream every morning & night, & finally feel like myself again. It's light, but when I touch my face I can feel the difference & when I wash my face I can tell I'm rinsing away barrier that protected my skin all day. Does it do any anti-aging magic? To tell you the truth, I never thought I'd find an effective moisturizer again, so if it diminished lines, that's just a bonus. Yes, I was just that desperate. Also, remember that everyone reacts to different chemicles, just because you have a bad reaction, it doesn't mean that everyone will. I learned the hard way... YOU HAVE TO TEST EVERYTHING if you have sensitive skin. It's just part of life. That's why I tried to be specific in this review, so women who have similar issues can make better judgement about what might work for them. Good luck.

    This could work fine for sensitive skin. It was very mild and did a good job moisturizing my cheeks. However, my T-zone is an oily mess and this not only held the oil in place, but broke me out. Back to the drawing board trying to find a moisturizer that doesn't make my oily t-zone worse or break me out. They say you need to moisturize no matter what. I'm starting to wonder whether that's true.

              I love this stuff! This has been the only moisturizer that hasn't broke me out or make my extremely sensitive (almost angry!) skin behave. It is super thick and creamy; a little tap on top of the cream a couple of times is enough for my skin. It feels very thick at first, but this is the kind of cream that melts into your skin from the warmth of your fingertips. It seems to glide better the more I rub. It does tend to sit on the skin a couple of minutes before it turns your skin velvety soft, but give it time. You will love the benefits! My skin hasn't broken out either. It has actually healed some old pimples that just would never heal on their own. My skin has finally gotten back to PRE-Sensitive with this and the gentle foaming cleanser. Both for [$] too! This line is just awesome!

                  I mostly use middle-to-high end brands (eg Dermologica (TM)) and was pleasantly surprised when I tried this product at my sister's house. I bought a jar for myself and still think it's a great product. It absorbs easily, feel shydrating and best of all, there's no oily face in the morning and no breakouts. (I normally have combination skin.) I also like that it has almost no smell. My husband hates it when I go to bed smelling like a teenager (fruity products) or like his grandmother (strongly perfumed products). No bells and whistles, just a product that works.

                  My mother will use this creme continuously
                  after goodbye brands of department store.
                  my mother found better foundation & skincare
                  products than expensive brands at drugstore.

                  I rewrite review. my mother is 56year old &
                  have very very dry skin.
                  she have used a lot of brands moisturizer
                  ( most department store )for a long time
                  because moisturizer of cheap price was
                  no deep moisturization.
                  But this creme is cheap & good quality.

                  this product doesn't absorb well.
                  First she gave up using this due to bad absorbing.
                  after put this on face & at once scrub on face,
                  was pushed creme like dead skin or dirty.
                  But she tried & tried this as she love this creme.
                  at night she waited 20 minutes and more for
                  absoring this creme. and then was not pushed
                  creme like dead skin.
                  this creme have very deep moisturization
                  & no irritate & gentle skin care.
                  My mother Love Love this product.

                  It is difficult to explain this product.
                  I love this product without one thing.
                  When My mother ( 56 year old ) use this product,
                  feel deep moisturiztion, fregrance free,
                  cheap price. So my mother like to use continuouly.
                  But it doesn't aborb well,
                  if scrub skin by cleand finger, make little dirt like dead skin.
                  I think it is up to each skin.
                  Anyway I like to recommend this product is
                  excellent quality. Pls try & Pls judge.
