This product is fantastic! And, honestly, I'm shocked that I think so. Normally, I spend $200 on my facial moisturizer (yes, you read that correctly! $200!) Instead, for about $4 I found something that I think that I like better.

My skin: I am in my 40s and still suffer from acne. I have a heck of a time. Not only do I have acne, but I'm getting old[er] and need moisture. It's a tough combination. This product moisturizes beautifully AND does not clog my pores or inflame my acne. Amazing! My skin looks and feels wonderful.

I concur with other reviews that the smell is awful! (Come on, Pond's! Please make an unscented version.) However, to save $196 and to get a great product, I'm living with the smell.

I stumbled on to this product a bit by accident. My delivery of my $200 product got lost in the mail. I was out entirely, and my skin was parched. I had a friend staying with me, and she offered me her moisturizer - Pond's Dry Skin Creme. I was desperate! So I used it. Nirvana (other than the smell)!

I do highly recommend this.

I bought this cream because of the colder weather and because it was so highly rated. Unfortunately it's not really the right face cream for me. I have combination skin that can be a little dry or a little oily, and this was just too greasy for me. I definitely cannot use it during the day, but it's fine as a night cream. It absorbs the best after a shower or scrubbing your face, but it really doesn't ever fully absorb (for me); it always feels a little filmy and greasy. Also, after using it for about a week it started to cause little breakouts. Granted, I can be prone to acne, but my face had been nice and clear for quite some time before using this. But I will say I wake up in the morning with very soft skin, which is nice. I think this would be a great face cream for someone with dry to very dry skin that is not prone to breakouts. I wish it worked better for me, and I will use it now and then, but I wouldn't buy it again.

    Comments about POND'S Dry Skin Cream, 3.9 oz:

    My mother uses this product. She's 90 yrs young and has skin that is youthful, supple, and without wrinkles.We attribute this to her use of Ponds Dry Skin Cream. Everyone comments on it because it's true. I wish I could send a picture of her up here.
    This is a traditional skin product that works better than all the new expensive rip-offs!

    Just don't use too much--concentrate on driest areas first. I use this mostly at bedtime or after a shower and I use Pond's cleansing towelettes first.

      Unlike many new face products, this one does the job! For me, it's too much in summer but in the winter months, most moisturizers just disappear in minutes, so I use this old standby all winter long on my neck especially and my cheeks too.

        Comments about POND'S Dry Skin Cream, 3.9 oz:

        For the price, I found this to be a good product. My preference is MD Forte moisturizer but in this economy I was hesitant to spend the money so I tried Ponds. It's a good moisturizer; my sometimes sensitive skin absorbed it easily, and had no adverse reactions. I will, however, go back to the MD product because I do believe that you get what you pay for. For my skin type there is less buildup in my pores, and I use less of the MD product than the Ponds to cover my face and neck. Also, the Ponds is too fragrant for me.

          Comments about POND'S Dry Skin Cream, 3.9 oz:

          I have tried everything under the sun as a moisturizer for my "extrememly sensitive, acne prone" skin. As a Michigan resident, I find this cream to be my savior during the harsh winter months. It relieves my dry skin and leaves it feeling baby soft. (For the summer months, I have found that Juice Organics brightening moisturizer works wonders for me). I use the Pond's cream after washing my face with Dove beauty bar. No harsh products, no acne creams and no derm appointments needed, so I swear by the Dove Beauty bar in conjuction with the Pond's cream during the cold months. This was a recommendation to my sister and I from our Mother who, along with our Grandmother, has used forever.

            I've always loved Ponds cold cream. I normally can't stand scented products, but this one has such a pleasant scent. And it's gentle and non-irritating to my sensitive skin. Best use is at night for me, but now that my skin is drier (age), I sometimes use it in the morning under make-up. It's also great for cleaning off that last bit of mascara that never seems to come off with cleansers.

                I found putting a little under my makeup helps it stay on longer.
                It's not greasy. Stays on a long time.

                Comments about POND'S Dry Skin Cream, 3.9 oz:

                I bought this about three weeks ago because I ran out of my Clinique daily moisturizer and wanted to look for something better and possibly cheaper.

                I have very dry skin and eczema on my cheeks, while I have frequent breakouts on my temples and occasionally on my forehead or nose; I have a very hard time looking for a product that deeply moisturizes without causing breakouts.

                After using this product every day for a little more than 3 weeks, I've found that it is much better as a night cream. When I put it on at night, I wake up with radiant, soft skin.

                However, once I wash my face in the morning and try to reapply it, it doesn't make my face look as great as it did when I woke up. Also, under makeup - I usually just wear Bear Minerals mineral veil because I'm a teen and I don't want to wear too much at school - it doesn't look right. Especially with the powder, I've found that it makes my skin look more uneven.

                As for acne, it did help the acne on my temples heal faster. However, it hasn't helped fade acne scars from what I've seen, and I started to get an occasional minor pimple in other areas of my face where I don't usually break out.

                If you have combination skin in the extreme like I do, just use this as a night cream. The tub is HUGE and it will last forever, so I will keep it unless I find something better.

                I'll keep on the lookout.
