It does pill over certain things but I find this the case even with PTR water drench. With this my culprit was Tula urban defense mist, absolutely made it horrible. If you put oil on your hands and then pat it on after the moisturizer that helps to avoid pilling. I googled about it and this was the first that popped up. I had pilling with water drench moisturizer when I used the ordinary buffet but not with Matrixyl. Shrug. The most pill free day creams are “lotions”, like the algenist in the pump bottle.

I got a kit on qvc, so it came with the night cream, which actually doesn’t pill. Now I don’t know why or what the difference is since it feels similar in texture. Neither product helps with Retin A flaking. Disappointed and probably will return if it won’t work with DDF serum which hydrated well actually. The only cream I have had that never pilled on me no matter if I put on 3 serums, a lotion, and oil, was algenist genius cream but I simply cannot afford it anymore. Lol. Need a dupe for that, it also has the ceramide. Water drench did not work well but for daytime but is soooo nice going on (also I’d run through a jar in a month just using it during the day, so costly).

I've never tried a full size product from FAB but I've tried many deluxe sample sizes and I have found a couple of their products that I really like. My skin is dry so I may have to look into this cream. It's sounds great.

My skin has been extremely dry, just when I thought I got everything under control, the dry patches are popping up again. I have never tried anything from First Aid Beauty but I might just pick up this cream for myself soon.

It's crazy how the weather affects our skin, I'm the same way ? Using this cream on my dry patches have definitely helped!

Aww, that's a shame that your local Sephora doesn't carry this ?? It's definitely a fabulous product for the winter time, and I think the key ingredient here is the oatmeal. So maybe check if there are any other creams with oatmeal in them?
