Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the hype! Like many people, I had bought this product because of the hype surrounding it. Upon first opening it, the first thing I noticed was an unsettling bathroom-like odor. The smell practically disappeared after the first seconds of application, but it really does make me reach for it less (if you are sensitive to smells, this one may not be for you). Second, the hydration aspect of this balm does not last very long. It does give a nice cooling sensation and dewiness to the skin initially, but you're way better off using a good moisturizer instead of this. Overall, not impressed with this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Careful! BEWARE! After using this product for the first beginning weeks, it left my skin feeling refreshed, however I caution using this around your eyes! It left my eyes burned, discolored, and with dry scaly texture. I no longer use this anymore and won't! My eyes look like raccoons eyes with the discoloration and no matter what I have tried to do, it cant seem to go away. leaving them now super sensitive to everything, I have to be putting deep moisturizer on them so they won't crack and hurt. So beware!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st time user ! What a huge surprise... I tried this product and loved it ! Since I live in a dry climate, my skin is dry and flaky. This is so hydrating and smooth going on. I will reorder again !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooo good for dry, sensitive and mature skin I bought this a few months ago, and it is a wonder balm. My skin is prone to dryness and very sensitive, and has gotten worse with age. I am 52. This clever hydrating balm works wonders in the cold weather, when my skin gets really stressed, and tends to go really red. It's in a handy portable size, which means that I take it everywhere with me. I love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sensitive girls don’t buy! I have very sensitive skin. I have not found a face primer that hasn’t broke my face out a little, but this one takes the cake. I put it on my jawline Incase I did have a breakout from it and I’m so glad I didn’t put it all over my face. I had a rash, and then a week later bumps all over my jawline they were purple and hurt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this because I have extremely dry skin. I’ll moisturize at night and then wake up in the morning and my skin will be flaking. Or I’ll moisturize before putting on makeup and by the time I’m setting my foundation, which I use a hydrating formula for that as well, I look flaky. This product is a game changer. So easy to use, I use it when I wake up in the morning and whenever I notice any flaky or dry spots throughout the day. I’m ordering two more, one to keep in my purse and one for my makeup bag. Love it! If you have dry skin, your skin will thank you !! Goes on a little greasy but dries fast. No that’s a big deal for me

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Works, But.... This definitely does what it's supposed to do, but the smell is something else. Luckily, I'm not super sensitive to smells, but if you are, I'd avoid this one. It smells fishy for some reason, and even when you don't have it up to your face, just open on the counter, the smell makes its way to your nose. It does fade away quickly when it's on your face, and I think it might just be due to how much product is in the tube vs what's going on your face, but still. I don't know why they decided to let this one out with that smell, or what's causing it, but I won't be buying another when mine runs out.

Can you buy this in store? I cant find it at target or walmart. Is this only available online? If you have bought it in a store where?

Asked by: Kassiemae
I have bought this product in store. I have only seen it at an ELF store though because when I saw it I told myself I had to buy it and I still have it. I am about to run out, but I always see it in my local ELF store.

I have very dry skin. I was wondering if this is a good product?

Asked by: ashleyymariee61
Yes, this is a very good product and I use it everyday just to hydrate my skin even if I am not going to be wearing any makeup that day. I bought it a while ago and I am about to run out of it. I will be repurchasing this item as soon as possible. Hope this helps!
