I assumed it would be better for dry skin since it was a tinted moisturizer but I think it can be problematic for extreme dry patches (I am a retinol user). ...It doesn’t blend easily at all like my other tinted moisturizers and it tends to make my other skincare underneath pill up after I apply this specific tinted moisturizer and none of my other tinted moisturizers do that with the skincare I use.

Its the perfect night cream, i do not have to slather an additional layer of moisturizer. The best part is that its as effective as strong, irritating retinols....I apply it all over specially in my eyes and forehead, I have wrinkly eyelids and fine lines on my forehead which I am pretty sure in a few weeks they will be even less visible.
