Benefit's Total Moisture Cream. The minuscule amount of product almost seems justifiable - you barely have to use any of this rich, velvety moisturizer. Despite it's thickness, this cream sinks in quickly. Immediately, this cream provides a surge of moisture that plumps the skin (anti-aging trick #1). This moisturizer also gives the skin a gentle, soft focus, brightened appearance - I think this cream may contain a small amount of pigment. This cream blurs the appearance of pores and fine lines (anti-aging trick #2). These effects last a couple hours and in that time the skin really does look and feel improved. I can't say if this facial cream delivers actual results over long term use, as this little jar only offers about a week and a half's worth of product. Nuance's Anti-Aging Super Cream has a light, olive-ish scent.

My feelings regarding Nuance by Salma Hayek's AM/PM Anti-Aging Super Cream are pretty similar to how I felt about L'Oreal's Youth Code Day/Night Cream. In my opinion, there is no reason to sell just a quarter of an ounce of moisturizer at a time. I suppose that scams consumers into thinking this cream is more potent or something, but I think its just plain scummy of the brand. I like the packaging, its attractive, though misleading and hard to open. The Anti-Aging Super Cream has a lovely, rich consistency and it moisturizes nicely. It gives the appearance of younger skin at least for a few hours, but I can't say that it truly improves the complexion. I'll finish off my little jar of Nuance's moisturizer, but I wouldn't repurchase it. I don't recommend this anti-aging cream, unless you're looking for a short lived quick fix.
