On the good side, it smells lovely, and moisturizes very well. It is a heavier moisturizing cream, but it absorbs fairly well and leaves a soft, smooth, hydrated texture on your face – especially by morning. That being said, I did not notice any improvement in skin quality or fine/expression lines. All in all, if you want a nice moisturizer that is affordable and smells nice, I recommend this. It is nice to know there is some retinol in it too.
