My skin around nose and lips had always been dried and tired year-round until I used this cream. I've tried many products that feel decent for the first 5 minutes but dry up to the point that the only (cheap & quick) remedy was to apply Blistex all over - and get breakouts because of clogged skin. So I was going back and forth between dryness and breakouts all the time. I've tried natural remedies like honey, yogurt, etc to restore moisture but nothing lasted throughout the day (and not to mention, messy!). This cream, however, was so different. I got a sample first because I have been disappointed by "great reviews" so many times that I just didn't believe the hype. But the relief you feel on the skin when you apply this cream is unparalleled - and it does not clog pores so no breakouts! The only downside I'd say is that it doesn't sink into your skin quickly but I honestly don't care because of how light it still feels.
