The Michael Todd True Organics Citrus Cream Moisturizer ($29) is a wonderful product. I am 48 years old and have normal to dry skin. Three pumps of this light yet creamy moisturizer, which I applied morning and night, was the perfect amount. I don't typically enjoy the smell of citrus skin products, but the beautifully light scent of mandarin orange, tangerine, lemon, and lime in the Citrus Cream Moisturizer won me over. The scent faded quickly, which was fine by me, and my face and neck felt fresh and had a healthy-looking sheen.

The cream absorbed immediately, which helped my makeup stay in place all day. That said, it didn't feel overly moisturizing, so if on a particular day my skin was especially dry, I would use a supplementary product. It's also worth noting that it doesn't contain any sunscreen. The main ingredient in the 81% organic Michael Todd True Organics Citrus Cream Moisturizer is hyaluronic acid and DMAE. These two ingredients are supposed to work together to produce a radiant complexion, which proved true for me, and gave my skin a youthful glow. It helped to bring back my skin's moisture balance, improve its firmness and give it a nice lift, while reducing fine lines, wrinkles and pore size.

The only problem I had with the Michael Todd True Organics Citrus Cream Moisturizer was with the packaging. For one, I couldn't see how much product was left, so I had no idea when the bottle was empty. Also, the pump itself was tricky, sometimes releasing too much, other times not enough. It sometimes squirted, as well, causing the moisturizer to go everywhere. Otherwise, I felt lucky to be able to review this terrific product!
