It really helped after microneedling session and when I overdid on chemical exfoliants and tretinoin. Calmed redness and irritation, reduced dryness and made skin feel more comforted. I’m not using it consistently for anti-aging purposes, but mainly as an SOS solution.
Great moisturizer. I love how thick it is, smell was a little odd at first but I’ve been through probably 6 tubes so I am use to it. For how thick it is it absorbs completely. It works as a day cream fine for me and layers well under products. It works wonders with my acne prone skin. I’ve taken a break from it but I’m sure I’ll bring it back into my routine in the future.
I wanted to love this, but it is slightly fragranced and has some harsher ingredients that are a bit irritating (retinol derivative). So it wasn't great for my skin, but my skin is pretty sensitised due to tretinoin use so if you don't have irritated skin it might be fine!
I’m glad I had it. I was really pleased with the result, it has calmed my skin just after a few nights use and redness is significantly gone. And it amazed me even more that it was a perfect match for retinoids. This has been a lifesaver for that kind. It helped to combat my dryness and itchiness that I experience and wake up with better hydration and more plum in my skin.
My skin has been dry lately and I needed something to combat the peeling and dryness. I use this morning and night and it’s made my skin look more supple. It works well under sunscreen and makeup as well. This is the first product I’ve ever ordered from SkinMedica and I’m impressed! I would repurchase this :)
