Pros: after just one use, skin is noticably smoother and softer, formula is light, absorbs quickly, no bad smell, a little goes a long way, has spf 15 and retinol, with continuous use, skin tone and complexion becomes VERY even, smooth, and glowy.

Cons: the tube is kind of small for the price ($13), may POSSIBLY cause temporary irritation (if this happens, use every other day until your skin can tolerate it, then use every day).

What I thought about it: This is by far the BEST moisturizer I have ever used. It's lightweight, easy to apply, non-greasy/sticky, absorbs quickly, and gives lasting moisture and protection without feeling heavy or oily. At first, I thought that it will run out quickly, but just a pearl sized amount of this is enough to cover your whole face, so it should last quite awhile. The sun protection is definitely a plus.

After only one day of using this cream, my skin became smooth and soft. I did notice however that the second day I used this cream, I got two small itchy spots on my cheek and the next day, one of them became a small pimple. However, I cannot totally attribute this to the cream because I wasn't eating too healthy at the time :P Despite this, over the course of my 1 week testing period, the improvement in my skin from day 1 to day 7 was unmistakable. By about the fourth day, my skin looked better WITHOUT foundation imo. My complexion was THAT much clearer; totally smoothed, toned, and softened with a healthy glow. I used the cream occasionally over night, which helped totally eliminate the dry spots I had been suffering from around my nose, forehead, and chin.

I have not had any really adverse effects with this cream, and I will continue using it off and on from now on, since my skin has really toned and smoothed out; I don't think I need to use it everyday. Overall, this cream is GREAT! The best I have ever used.
