How it claims to work:

Dermatologist-developed formula combines all-day hydration with skin-strengthening ingredients to help skin look younger, longer. Helps strengthen skin’s own moisture barrier by 54%, so more moisture stays in. (Source:


Fairly expensive but a little goes A LONG way. I purchased the 4.2 fl. oz. size and had it over a YEAR.  Originally, it was brought to my attention when I was in a pageant and needed a make over. The makeup advisor at the booth was shocked at how very dry my skin was. She put this moisturizer along with the Moisture Surge (which can be used with makeup to help keep your skin hydrated) on my face. I never purchased the Moisture Surge, hence these are more higher-end products; I was younger and wasn’t quite into skin care yet. I probably will purchase it at a later date. The moisturizer does EXACTLY as it says. One of my holy grail products because of how DRY my skin was! My skin literally peeled like dandruff, gross I know. This moisturizer is great for girls who do have that extra dry skin and need all the moisture they can get.

Over time, I am not sure if my skin had gotten worse with dryness or if my skin was adapting to the moisturizer. Sometimes during those cold winter months, skin tends to be even drier than other months. I tend to have dry patches in my T-area as well as the corners of my nose.

Update – Aug. 2016

I believe that this product changed my skin. I no longer have dry skin, now it’s completely combination-oily. During the time I used this product, my skin changed and I could no longer use it due to my oiliness.  I definitely would not recommend this to oily skin beauties; there is a gel formula that works better with oily skin. Oily skin beauties would probably hate this moisturizer, honestly.

Rating and Comments:

Although I don’t use this product anymore due to my skin change,  it did beyond what it needed it to when I needed it the most. It still is my holy grail, and I will probably use it during the winter months. I plan to see how I like the gel formula.

I give this product a 5 out of 5.
