So I've been using this for a few weeks now (which is usually the amount of time it takes for my skin to break out if it decides it doesn't like a product), and I really love this moisturizer! I'm in my mid-30's. I used to have oily skin in my teens and early 20's. But now I have very dry skin in the winter and combination/dry/sensitive skin in the summer. I need a VERY rich moisturizer for winter. Anything less and my skin will drink it up immediately and turn flakey within a few hours. That being said, I was a little nervous about the presence of Shea Butter, because my skin hasn't liked it in the past. But it turns out that the Shea Butter extract in this moisturizer hasn't bothered my skin at all! No zits, and I have fresh, clear, dewy skin! I also bought the Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner (which I hadn't previously used before) at the same time as this moisturizer and I love it as well! I think these two work very well together. The toner takes care of the 'combination' part of my face (like, my chin) that tends to break out monthly (hormonal) and the Phytomer Rich Thermo Protective Creme takes care of everything else! I highly recommend this creme if you have similar skin to mine and need a very rich moisturizer for the winter months. I probably won't use this in the summer, however.
So worth it!

I've been using this moisturizer for over a year now and am obsessed with it. I started using it based on the recommendation of my facialist. I started out using 2 other Phytomer moisturizers and we worked our way up to this one because I needed that much more of a moisture punch. I was hesitant at first because it is so expensive, but I cannot go back to any other moisturizer! This cream is thick, but not greasy at all and soaks into skin perfectly. I use it morning and night. I have sensitive, fair skin and this product has not had a single adverse effect on me. Perfection! Other products I use in my regime are Care Plus Cleanser (not available on SkinCareRx) and Sanitas Medicated Toner (also not available on this site). I've found SkinCareRx to have the best price on this moisturizer so I always come back here to buy it. The cream usually lasts me about 2-3 months.
