Good for dry, sensitive skin

I have tried for several years finding the right night cream.
I have very dry, sensitive and acne prone skin.
Evening primrose oil fixes my PMS breakouts, but I had to start with Differin cream(prescription Avitamin) trying to get rid of my comedones, which I`ve had for years.
I`ve tried all high-end brands(decleor, MD Formulations, Dermalogica etc), but nothing worked for me.
I`ve also tried several oils, shea butter and the Borage Skin Therapy night cream with none, or bad effect for both the dryness and acneprone skin.
So; my breakouts come from both hormones, but also the dryness.
It`s difficult to give reviews since my skin tends to chenge into perfect when trying new makeup/creams/products for about 2-3 weeks, then goes back to same or worse.
But I can say that this cream gives anough moisture than any other cream I`ve tried, I can even use it for daytime(not recommended for normal or just slightly dry skin).
My comedones are almost gone, don`t need to use my concealer.
I got a few comedones on vacation, but they were really easy to get out with out leaving those terrible "4 week scars".
My skin feels better now, and I will edit the review if it chenges into worse or better.
I recommend this highly for anyone with very dry, sensitive skin. I`m now in my 30s, but this would have worked for my skin in my 20s also(it was more dry and sensitive just without breakouts and comedones).
Not recommended to anyone with oily/normal skin, it`ll probably be too heavy and mild(not really any active ingredients).
Many have complained about the packaging, and i totally agree. My pump still works(fingers crossed). I would like Aubrey to make this in a 50 ml plastic tube.
Now in winter time I actually use it in daytime too, and it works great for me under makeup, giving me a slightly dewy look(although you have to wait at least 10 minutes and let it sink in)
My husband actually complimented me with "naturally looking beautiful skin" when I didn`t wear any makeup, so I guess this works much better than anything else for me since I really haven`t had good looking skin for years.
It`s not a miracle product, an my skin didn`t turn into perfection, but it has improved with a more healthy glow, which makes imperfections less visible.
