This is the first moisturizer I have ever used. I have oily skin so I never thought I needed to use a moisturizer. I didn't want to put something on my face that would add more moisture and potentially make it more greasy or worse, cause me to breakout. After reading and listening to several high reviews, I decided to give it chance. My skin can be a little dry in the winter, so it couldn't hurt. After one use, my face was moisturized but not overly moisturized and it felt softer and smoother. I like that this is a water based gel moisturizer and the fact it contains hyaluronic acid. I highly recommend this!
