I tried a sample of Prescriptives Intensive Rebuilding Moisturizer over the past few evenings. I normally use Estee Lauder Daywear and am quite happy with it as a day product, but I have been interested in finding something without SPF for night use. I also use a Retin-A product at night and could use some extra moisture with that. I had read some good things about the Prescriptives Intensive Rebuilding Moisturizer, including its focus on hyaluronic acid (binds moisture) and glucosamine (recently shown to have positive effects on discoloration). I am also already a fan of Prescriptives Super Line Preventor. So when I received a sample, I was excited to try it.
I was quite impressed. The moisturizer feels wonderful. It goes on without feeling greasy, yet really packs a punch when it comes to fighting dry skin. I had been waking up a bit dry and flaky after using Retin-A, and found that I woke with no dryness or tightness. The flakes were gone! After just a few uses I felt hooked. My only complaint, and it is minor, is that the product has a slight almond smell. That is not my choice of aroma in a product, but I can live with it.
The only downside to this one is that it fall in the higher end price range for skin care. It seems worthy of the price though.
