My Experience:  I received a sample of the moisturizer in my April BirchBox. Although, I do not suffer from dry skin, I tried the moisturizer several times to see how it will work with someone with normal to combination skin. First, let’s start off with the fragrance. The moisturizer has a very light chic, rose smell, but it’s not overwhelming. The consistency is thick and creamy, but spreads easily. Absorbs quickly into the skin, I used it on my face, neck and hands but it did not give me a greasy finish. 

I can see why it is for people with dry skin the moisturizer is rich and thick; however, for someone with normal to combination skin, I would suggest to use the moisturizer as a night cream. I also would not use it during the summer, but this would be a perfect winter moisturizer. If you have oily skin, this might be too heavy.

Pros:

Rich and creamy
Absorbs quickly
Moisturizes
Light Rose scent

Cons:

Pricey

Overall Thoughts: Overall, I did like the replenishing moisturizer; however, I would only use it for a night cream. The moisturizer made me interested in the company and I wanted to find out more about the merchandise the company sells. I went to the site to see if there were moisturizers that would suit my skin type and the company does sell moisturizers, along with other products for several different skin types. While the products are very pricey, I am seriously considering shelling out the money, definitely seems worth it.

Have you tried it? What did you think?
