    Light and thin! … for now anyways.
    I think it depends on where I live/seasons.
    During the winter I’d use something slightly thicker but not too thick as it then makes me feel very oily and clogged. lol :P

  2. I usually like light and thin, but if its bedtime sometimes I like the thicker kind.

    I have dry, dry skin. I live in Denver now, so heavy duty moisturizer is a must for me. Even when I lived in East Texas (humid!!!!), I needed my moisturizer to be on the thicker side.

    My skin + thick, heavy moisturizer = breakout city

    I have to use something really thick since parts of my face tend to be uber dry. =(
    Which sucks, because I’m also acne prone… Oddly enough, I noticed my face cleared up quite a bit after I began using Nivea on my face.
    Yes, thick, cheapo Nivea.
    You never know unless you try it. ;3

  7. i prefer light yet rich formula. it sounds complicated eh :P

  8. Something in between for me!

  9. I love thick moisturizers because even if I want it to be light for daytime, i can just use a tiny bit and warm them in my hands to lighten the texture before applying. Light moisturizers never feel sufficient.

    light, oil free, non comedogenic
    and please without spf –> i already got that in my foundation or i have a separate one some sunscreens make me break out….even worse if i like a cream and i wanna use it before i go to bed i dont want no damn sunscreen in it lol

    Since I have oily skin during the day I like my moisturizer to be light and thin, also in the summer. Sometimes if its too thick my face looks like I dove into a pepperoni pizza. At night time thick and rich does the job…also a little thicker in the winter….the NYC cold can really take a toll on your skin if you dont take care of it.

    I have very oily skin, so light & thin is the way to go. If my skin gets dry & peeling (usually around the nose) then I upgrade to something richer, but not generally for very long.
