    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN During the winter months my skin is unusually dry. I have tried everything out there but always had bad side effects. I went to see my dermatologist last week and he recommended this. It really does a great job of hydrating and relieving any sensitivity. You only need a dime's worth and emulsifywith your hands and apply. If it gets to greasy simply blot with a tissue. My new favorite go to .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be intimidated by its initial "greasy" feel. The product quickly absorbs as it's very lightweight. Put on hands and feet before bed -- amazing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this moisturizer! I can feel my skin soaking this moisturizer in. Gives that youthful glow, especially in the sun-drenched Florida! Put it on a while before bed so it doesn't rub off on the pillowcase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Body Moisturizer, not for face This moisturizer is not for the face. It is definitely pore clogging. I placed a small amount on my 10 year old's chin and he developed huge cystic acne. I was also using as a recommendation by my aesthetician and over time developed blackheads. Paraffin and petroleum should never be used on the face. This is however a great product for the body.
