Graydon Green Cream bathes skin in cooling, calming, balancing hydration. This lightweight gel-like cream packs as much antioxidant and anti-aging power as a superfood salad, including a highly concentrated chlorella tea, tonifying sage, rosemary, thyme and parsley, and soothing squalane and neem to help support normal sebum levels. Boasting not one, but two phyto-retinols, moth bean extract and bakuchiol, Green Cream douses skin in collagen and elastin-boosting botanicals that rival vitamin A, without the aggressive side effects. Especially for sensitive, congested and oily skin, this phyto-retinol skin hydrator is a summer staple for all skin types.
• A nourishing superfood-packed cream
• Two plant based retinol infusions
• All the benefits, without the side effects of conventional retinol

This was not for me because of the texture and the amount of rubbing in it took. I can't speak at all to its efficacy. For me, the experience of skin care has to be enjoyable and this texture just was not.
This was not my favorite. I got it in the Graydon box. I have dry skin. I think the would be better suited for oily to very oily skin. First of all, just note, this smells like you are putting parsley on your face. There is a very strong parsley/herb scent. This did not sink into my skin well at all. It comes out green, but I start to rub it into my skin and it turns white. I have to rub and rub to get it to sink in. Once it is fully absorbed, it is very mattifying. Having dry skin, that just doesn’t work for me. It is very calming and it takes down redness, but for me that is not enough to outweigh the negatives. But oily skin may like this.
I started using this a few days after receiving the July Box. In combination with the Full Moon serum (see my review for that one), my skin has improved so much! This cream is super light weight, smells lovely, and works to smooth my skin nicely. Honestly, I was skeptical at first, and had to find my groove to incorporate this cream into my routine. My skin is on the drier side, so usually things for oily skin don't work for me. For my skin the best steps are to apply the Full Moon serum after toning, and then apply my face oil. After those absorbed, I apply the Green Cream. I still layer a more moisturizing cream if needed that day/night, but if I don't, my skin feels hydrated still. I don't think I can go without this or the Full Moon.
I just got this in my monthly beauty box. i used both the serum and the moisturizer on my hand to make sure that it wouldn't be too bad if there was a reaction. I also used this moisturizer and compared it to Tatcha's "the Water Cream", (if anyone knows, it was the most popular moisturizer for oily skin for 2018 and it was selling out of Sephora faster than they could stock it). It goes on exactly like the Tatcha moisturizer that I have, leaves skin feeling moisturized but not oily, and also seems to be doing well against my sensitive skin. Last but not least, it is about 25$ cheaper than Tacha's moisturizer and is green beauty, so I would give this 10 stars if I could!
