Because your skin is thirsty all year round.
Promising review: "I have (or rather had) dry/oily skin and other creams and lotions I tried just were not cutting it — they felt thick, greasy, and just generally uncomfortable. But I put this on and feel almost nothing at all! If you're looking for a transparent yet effective daily moisturizer, definitely give this a try! I never realized how dry and tight my skin felt after a shower until I regularly started applying this right after and felt what my skin should actually feel like." —Raul G.

Promising review: "Big fan of this stuff. I have lots of skin issues (psoriasis and perioral dermatitis being the biggest concerns) and this stuff does wonders to help both. It is heavy enough to moisturize my dry spots and lightweight enough that I'm not greasy by mid-day." —Elizabeth H.

Promising review: "My face usually feels bloated and gross in the morning so I was super excited to try this product out. I went to bed feeling already refreshed and woke up feeling amazing! What I saw in the mirror was soft, hydrated, glowing and refreshed skin." —Laura T.

Promising review: "I'm really young but I've already started developing fine lines around my eyes. No eye cream solved my problem until I started using It's Potent! I never thought I would have to worry about wrinkles at age 20, but as long as I use this I don't have to. Will definitely repurchase." —sm0607
Promising review: "It has helped over time to reduce my hyperpigmentation spots, though it will take about a month to notice a huge difference. Aside from that, your skin texture will improve overall. It also works great as a makeup primer — nothing else has worked for me but now my makeup stays put all day, and it works great to remove my makeup too. If I feel like I used something harsh and my skin feels irritated or dry, I use the gel at night instead of a cream and wake up to smooth, supple, and clearer skin. This has become my staple product. It will last many months, and for the cost, you can't lose." —Reah

Promising review: "I have been using the yogurt cream for almost a year and I am nothing but elated. I am a stickler for all-natural and non-comedogenic products — this is the best of both because it is not easy to find something that works this well for my face (I am normal to oily in my T-zone)." —zirka

Promising review: "LOOOVE THIS! Bought this cream for my infant son instead of using the standard baby lotions. I'm a pediatric nurse and have used so many different types of baby lotions, but none of them were cutting it for his dry skin. I have eczema myself and know that some creams can sting when the skin is cracked. I like that this cream is thick and it most definitely maintains a moisture barrier. I wish I had discovered this earlier! I will recommend this to everyone I know!" —Katherine

Promising review: "This has made my skin so plump, soft, and radiant! The cooling effect is a major plus too. All the redness on my face disappears whenever I put it on. Best thing ever!! Especially when paired with the Benton Aloe Toner!" —Romy Fe Valiente
Promising review: "I have eczema and work 12 hour shifts at a hospital, so my skin takes a beating in the dry atmosphere of the ICU. I was looking for something that would hydrate my skin and protect it from signs of aging and this cream does the job! It has a light rosy fragrance that doesn't irritate skin. It keeps my skin nice and moist for hours and gives off a dewy look." —Niso J.

Promising review: "I really did not want to like this product but I am obsessed. I noticed a difference literally the day after. I usually put it on after I do a face mask or after I shower. I try to use it every other day just because cause of how expensive it is but man, I get this beautiful glow and my skin is baby smooth and soft. After I started using this product, I felt confident going out and not wearing BB cream or any coverup cause my skin looked that bomb!! You are getting what you pay for. Blessing and a curse, but I am definitely planning on repurchasing once I run out." —jaybaybay
