8/10, worth a try
prior to getting this, i'd been using the innisfree green tea seed serum as my daily moisturiser (day & night). while i really did love that, i could not deal with how it never fully dries down to a matte finish. i got the aloederma moisturiser because reviews say that it absorbs easily and isn't greasy; i can now attest to that. pros: absorbs easily, spreadable, minimal fragrance, triggered no reactions from my skin (i get bouts of eczema and have oily-sensitive skin), great packaging (looks pretty luxe and can be displayed on your vanity, if you prefer). neutral points: the price (495.00 for 40ml) seems much to me since the innisfree one was ~800.00 for 80ml. in terms of quantity and price, the closest i can compare to this is the biore aqua rich watery essence (which i used to use as both moisturiser and sunscreen), which is cheaper at 450.00 but has 50ml of product, and UV protection to boot. i'd probably hesitate to buy this again since the biore is more readily available and seems more bang for buck. cons: it's not moisturising enough for me, and i find that if i stay in an air conditioned office throughout the day, the skin around my nose and below my lip start to dry up and peel if scratched. this also isn't moisturising enough for night time and i find that i often have to use four pumps to make my skin feel sufficiently hydrated, or that i have to layer this with cetaphil. TL;DR: not bad, but not completely wowing.
