First and foremost, the product worked great for me. I have extreme anxiety disorders and combined with Covid (and a facial cleanser that dried me out), my face was SUPER dry and gross. This fixed that within one day. That leads me to the main purpose of my review. I don't usually leave reviews, but I thought this was important because I've noticed a trend in ALL the moisturizers on here. Noticing that was the only reason I bought this after seeing such mixed reviews. All or most of these reviews accused the product of drying out the skin, etc. BUT. Here's the thing- the skin on your face is VERY sensitive. That's why you can't do things like use body lotion on it, for example. Thus, as the title reads, PLEASE do your research before you buy! Know what you're sensitive to, know what's in the product. Leaving one star reviews because YOUR skin was sensitive to this moisturizer hurts both the seller AND potential customers who, like me, are wary of mixed reviews. The product doesn't deserve a bad review because it happened to have something in it that your skin was sensitive to- EVERYTHING meant to be put on your skin is going to have SOMETHING in it that SOMEONE is allergic or sensitive to. Please don't leave poor reviews that discourage people who could benefit from these products just because you PERSONALLY were sensitive to it and didn't look into the ingredients/didn't know your own sensitivities.
I tend to be prone to breakouts if I use any product daily on my face, but I've been needing a good moisturizer because I'm 29 and have not consistently used a moisturizer and I'm worried my age is starting to show. Anyway, saw commercials for this on TV and made a note to try it. Paid somewhere in the rage of $20 at Walmart for it. It smells really nice and fresh and is a thin gel that goes on very smooth without any residue. My skin really soaks this stuff up and it seems to do a great job without irritating my skin or causing breakouts. In fact I would say that this has helped to clear my skin and has faded (slightly, nothing crazy...this stuff isn't magic ;-) some of the red marks I have from old pimples. I have rather oily/combo skin and this works great for me and I would recommend!
My dermatologist recommended Routine 10 Ultrarich Moisturizer as a way to slow down wrinkles that were starting to form on my forehead and cheekbones. I'm 57 and wish I had known about this product sooner to help me slow down the eye wrinkles (which came first)... but after using this now for about 6 months, I love what it's doing to add moisture and smooth out my skin on the rest of my face. This absorbs in and isn't a greasy layer sitting on top of my face like a lot of other moisturizers. It feels refreshing too, almost like I've cleaned and moisturized in one swoop and it's my go to blast of coolness for my face on a hot day.
I went from very dry, flaky angry skin to soft and supple in about 1 week. I noticed a change instantly. My acne has even started clearing up. Keep in mind I also added vitamin E oil serum to my skincare routine at the same time. I highly recommend. The product is a great consistency, is cooling/calming, light, and has a pleasant smell.
This is the first moisturizer I have ever used. I have oily skin so I never thought I needed to use a moisturizer. I didn't want to put something on my face that would add more moisture and potentially make it more greasy or worse, cause me to breakout. After reading and listening to several high reviews, I decided to give it chance. My skin can be a little dry in the winter, so it couldn't hurt. After one use, my face was moisturized but not overly moisturized and it felt softer and smoother. I like that this is a water based gel moisturizer and the fact it contains hyaluronic acid. I highly recommend this!
I have combination dry/oily skin and I got this after seeing the TV commercial and decided to try it out. I've been using this daily for a few weeks now and I really love it! It doesn't take much to apply to my whole face, dries quickly and makes my skin feel super soft. It also seems to be balancing out my skin- not super oily/dry anymore. I'd recommend this if you have a similar skin type.
Has a good consistency. very light. doesnt leave a sticky or heavy feeling like that of a cream or lotion. I wished it were unscented. I dont want to be putting unnecessary ingredients on my face. The packaging is also extremely excessive. the pot is way bigger than what is needed to hold the amount of product. Yes it gives it an expensive look and feel, but it's just not necessary. If it works, it works. theres no need for gimmicks and psychological marketing to try to sell this. we all know it costs pennies to manufacture.
I LOVE this stuff. It's been a dry PacNW winter - this is a great way to get moisture to your skin. I don't love that it's in a jar - dipping my fingers in can't be as sanitary as a pump.... But the hydration factor outweighs the ick. After using this for about a week, the dry flaky patches I had on my cheeks went away. I've tried an off-brand hyaluronic serum... not nearly as good as this.
So soft and quick absorbance. Smells good. It’s not heavy, greasy or sticky. I like it. It’s like high end products.
I bought this because I needed a water-based moisturizer to go under my makeup. I have super sensitive skin, so I was a bit hesitant to try it because up to now, one of the only things that has worked for me was Routine10 Ultra Rich Moisturizer face cream for sensitive skin. I get perioral dermatitis from most face lotions or creams. I recently decided to try a water-based makeup (airbrush) to see if it would be better for my skin, and it requires a water-based moisturizer. This stuff is amazing, it feels so refreshing and moisturizing when you put it on, and then it soaks right in and it feels like there is nothing on your skin. It lasts all day. I put it on before bed and when I wake up, my skin still looks amazing, like I just put it on. The fragrance is really nice but so light it is barely noticeable, which is good for me because I dislike anything with a strong fragrance. I will keep purchasing this one!
