I really enjoyed this in the evening but it did pearl up when I applied my sunscreen over it in the morning, even after waiting for several minutes.
I’ve never had a moisturizer absorb like this before. I LOVE it! I’m 42 with combination skin and I’ve tried everything. This is the best and most affordable moisturizer I’ve ever used.
I absolutely love Mr. Reliable. I have very oily skin with some stubborn dry flaky patches on my chin and around my nose. This moisturizer has helped heal those stubborn dry areas and makes my skin feel so hydrated that it helps keep my oily skin at bay. It dries fast and I feel it makes my skin look radiant. I’m on my third bottle and I’ll keep purchasing. I love this product.
I got a sample in the most random way–my husband and Victoria's dad were on a startup board together. Anyway, my normally very oily skin was getting extremely dry due to aging and every moisturizer I tried would either clog my pores or do nothing. However, Mr. Reliable lives up to its name. I was skeptical because it's so light, but it went on smoothly and absorbed really well and keeps my face well hydrated without getting too oily or causing acne. I love the light scent! On extra dry days, I add a bit of Balm Voyage.
While this is a stretch for my budget I haven't found anything quite like it that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. This is my holy grail
