Unfortunately, it is 'magic' for me!
I really didn't want to fall in love with this cream but I have; it has turned into my 'Holy Grail'. I have always been of the school that says spend your skincare budget on serums and actives; cleansers and moisturisers, just find the cheapest you can that work for you. I'm mid-fifties now and have always been a skincare geek so I'm now pretty sure what suits me and I have a simple but effective core group of products that I won't deviate from unless I try something I love or my skin changes. I was really struggling to find a moisturiser that works for me. I have combination skin that is moving to the drier side as I get older but still oily nose, chin and forehead. My face and neck are extremely reactive, and my eyes run at the drop of a hat. This cream makes my cheeks so comfortable but doesn't exacerbate the oily zone. I use the tiniest amount. For that reason I wish it didn't have SPF as I don't use enough to make that effective and I wish I could use this at night. It seems this cream is very polarising; for me, it is by far the best moisturiser I have ever used.

Way too thick
I love CT products and you get a sample of this everytime you buy something from the brand. So I have tried this cream to death. It is just way too thick. It feels like you've layered lard on your face and even after rubbing it into the skin, it leaves the skin feeling sticky. It wasn't "magical" and the videos of models using the cream before they have the make up on isn't realistic to the actual effect of the cream.
Best Use: Hydrating
Skin Type:: Dry
Sadly I didn't really get on with this magic cream. My skin is dry and dehydrated and the cream was OK but it wasn't 'magic' - the cream pilled a bit when I used it with a serum and personally I don't like the scent, however others may think differently.
That's kind of the best word i can use to describe this - gloopy! its very thick and almost greasy and my combination skin is bot a fan at all - even in winter when my skin dries out this stuff just kind of sits on top making my skin feel oily and doesn't make it hydrated and smooth just greasy - i don't know if its just my skin type but i won't be buying again
Skin Type:: Normal
Not at all happy with this ‘moisturiser’. Not hydrating at all, makes my skin really, really greasy, and it gave me spots! I have normal/combination skin, which is usually clear, and I thought that as this is a gel cream, it would work well with my t-zone. Instead it just made it really oily and spotty. I would give it zero stars if I could. I’m bitterly disappointed with this cream, especially given how much it costs, and it’s completely unusable.
