Weird smell aside it's good stuff. No greasy residue and it absorbs quickly.

Best Absorbing Moisturizer
It seems that all the moisturizers I try leave this film on my skin, and even if I touch my skin it comes off in little clumps. Also when I try putting concealer on after moisturizing it ALL comes off in that area..with little clumps EVERYWHERE. If I try to brush them off it creates more..

So basically, I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for fast absorbing moisturizers? I have fairly dry skin, and would like a moisturizer with a pearly or thick texture.

Thank you in advance! And I'm truly sorry if there's already a topic on this!

I love Kiss My Face Peaches and Cream Moisturizer. It's 4% AHAs, absorbs quickly and smells really good.

Immortelle Precious Cream by L'Occitance is very nice. I also like the Shea Butter and Honey SPF15 from Le Couvent des Minimes at the Bath and Body Works.

I have oily skin, but neutrogena visibly firm serum is amazing. it's really light and absorbs instantly. I have oily skin, so I dont' need much so it's perfect for me.

It seems like your makeup is balling over your skin - try patting in a moisturiser instead of rubbing it in.

Clarins Multi Active range is quite good, it's pearly and good for dry skin. Dermalogica's Skin Smoothing cream is lovely also, but I prefer it as a night cream.

Good luck!

I just bought this http://www.bigelowchemists.com/produ...oducts_id/3294
for $25 at Bath and Body Worksand I LOVE IT! I almost bought the one without spf in it but I needed a good light moisturizer that does have spf so I got it. It doesn't feel like you have sunscreen on at all! The one without spf is even lighter feeling

I just bought the moisturizing lotion called cetaphil and it really works. My doctor recommended it for my acne and it seems to really work

my favourite moisturisers are for day: Earthflower Apocathary EFA cream. EFA stands for essential fatty acids; its organic, preservative free etc and only costs $AUD12 for 30mls!
for night, and especially in winter i use Weleda Skin Food. its really thick so you dont need a lot, but when you wake up your skin is all glowy and soft. its the best!
and for body i couldnt live without Palmers Cocoa Butter!

Well, my moisturizer that I use in the morning is Clean and Clear Morning Glow Moisturizer. My skin is still growing, so my mom said that I should use products for teenagers. It works perfectly fine, but the smell is kinda....off. It smells like a bit like soy sauce. Yeah, I know it's weird but it works fine and also cheap!

This is what it looks like:
