The lid was so dirty and old that it wouldn't rub off!!!

I LIVE for this component and the product smells amazing. The glass bottle is extremely posh, so don't drop it! I personally have a fairly oil T Zone and normal skin everywhere else on my face, but I find this product works best for me when I alternate with heavier gel based moisturizers, as it does have a very light consistency and doesn't always hydrate my skin enough to reduce oil production on days when the air is dry.

Love it.I got it as a sample once and was unsure at first but after using it even for a couple days, I loved it. It has a scent forsure but it is refreshing and not fragrancey.

I've been searching for oil-free moisturizers and have struggled to find something that will be hydrating (not ridiculously expensive) but not make me look like a plate of French fries at the end of the day. I decided to give this brand a shot but I am very surprised at the results. Most moisturizers don't really seem to sink into the skin-- they just kind of sit on top.The first couple of days I used it, I did break out but I've concluded that it was not the moisturizers fault (or it was purging). After that bout, however, my skin seems to love this. I mix it with Lapis oil from Herbivore for extra hydration & my skin feels very much hydrated but doesn't make it shiny/oily. The smell is pretty light but I am not a fan of smelling like a watermelon even though the fragrance doesn't smell "cheap". It fades after a little while so I can live with it. Because I tested this out during quarantine, I don't know how it performs under makeup though I don't imagine there will be issues. I do recommend giving this a shot if you have acne-prone skin like mine.

it’s really cute packaging and i love the way it smells but maybe not the best as a moisturizer. i’ve been using it for about two months and it leaves a sticky film on my face and makes me breakout.

 I have combination skin and it this feels great very hydrating!

  • O Quin


Everything breaks me out. Everything. So, I have to be very careful about what I put in my skin. The fact that I am vegan makes it even more complicated. This products is amazing. My skin loves it. Not only do I not break out, but my skin looks brighter, more even and has a glow to it! Love this stuff! Been using it for about a month and I won’t go back! You can’t make me!!!

 Smells Heavenly


The main reason I love this product is because the scent is absolutely heavenly. The product goes on very smooth and doesn't leave your skin feeling oily. Unrelated: the interior of the box is adorable.

 Maybe not good for oily t-zone or sensitive skin. Scented. Stings.

Good: Feels lightweight. A little goes a long way for your face, neck, and decolletage.

Problematic: Smells like a watermelon Jolly Rancher, and that scent will linger for a bit. I don't know if others can smell it, but you definitely will. My face is oil t-zone / combination. Chest is normal to dry. Neck is dry to normal (if that makes sense). It had a bit of a tingle on my drier areas. After about an hour or so, my t-zone looked a bit shiner. I'm not too oily, but it's enough so that it can become very shiny with the wrong products (such as a "radiant" finish formula). I tried it with and without my retinol (nighttime) and my Vitamin C-serum and once or twice without any treatment. It always did the same thing, and the tingling / stinging was worse if I applied my treatments.

 Leave it.

50-50. Liked it but like my other moistizer I found way better! Take it or leave it. Honestly leave it cause the cost. Not worth it but not bad product. Feels thin and watery then slightly tacky. Smells decent. Doesn't have good or bad effect. Just yeah.

  • Ang

 Love this serum. Worth the $$

Smells so good. Light & refreshing. Perfect for these odd winter days in Northern CA. Have not had dry or chapped cheeks at all since I e used this product. Love it!!
