My review: I had high hopes of this moisturizer, but unfortunately it did not meet my expectations. It is a good basic moisturizer. But if you have dry skin like me, this won’t do much..
It is good if you need a quick fix or you and in a budget. But I think even you have a limited budget or you don’t want to spend too much the Cerave Moisturizer is way much better and a few bucks mor expensive.
