Price: $150 for 50 g/ 1.7 oz

Description from the website: The regenerative abilities of the skin decrease with age with superficial wrinkles being the first signs of skin aging. Designed especially for normal to dryer skin types, KNU cream addresses the challenge of skin aging with a combination of 70% organic ingredients, including jasmine, cranberry, green tea, aloe vera, and essential oils to heal, soothe and provide antioxidant protection. These are combines with today's most powerful age prevention ingredients possessing significant skin regenerating properties clinically shown to accelerate healing and increase the rate of skin renewal to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature skin aging.

The original that launched a company. Like a reset button for the skin, this ultra-rich anti-age cream transforms skin on contact with Michael Todd's now-famous formulation for immediate face-saving firming, lift and tightening.

Thoughts: I've always heard great things about Michael Todd's products. For that reason, I didn't think twice when I saw it on Groupon.
Here's the new packaging. It's taller, as well as, it comes in a pump. It makes it sanitary-safe. Weight-wise, it's the same as the old packaging.
Here's how the old packaging was. There was no pump. You had to scoop the product out of the container.
Here's a swatch of the product on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a sweet scent. I can't tell if it's fruity or more on the sweet floral side. I would like to think it's on the fruity side. Also, the scent lasts for couple of minutes. I don't smell it on the skin after awhile. Secondly, the consistency is in-between thin to medium. For that reason, I think this will be great for all skin types including oily. Even though it's not thick, it's hydrating on my dry skin. My skin soak up the moisturizer. With that said, it's easy to apply and use. Third, I highly recommend using the moisturizer as soon as you open. Don't save it for later after you open it. I used mine immediately and then put it to the side to review other products. Now that I came back to this moisturizer, it turned brown. It makes sense why it turned brown. Since it's organic and made with natural ingredients, it just oxidized. I know I shouldn't use it but it's still works. :X Lastly, I noticed my skin feels hydrated and more youthful. It helped diminish fine lines but the deep lines are still here. This is a good moisturizer and I can see it preventing future lines.

* Newer packaging is sanitary safe; comes in a pump.
* Newer packaging won't oxidize; comes in a pump.
* Sweet scent.
* Light moisturizer; in-between thin to medium.
* Great for all skin types.
* Hydrating.
* Skin looks more youthful.
* Diminish fine lines.
* Great anti-aging product.

* Can be costly.

Would repurchase: Yes.
