Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisture I love this cream! It has a slight sting when I first put it on (I have sensitive skin) but within minutes it would passes. The cream absorbs so well over night and my skin is plumb and hydrated the next morning. It also leaves my skin looking more even in coloring and less fine lines. I use the phelityl night cream in the summer and switch to this one during the cold months. It takes care of the dry, flaky winter skin with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Results guaranteed! I have been using this as my night cream and have been truly impressed by the results. I have had some recent breakouts which have left residual red marks. This cream diminished the red marks, smoothed my overall skin texture, and healed the remaining blemish. It also has softened fine lines that are beginning to appear. I wake up every morning with smooth soft skin. This repair cream truly delivers and lives up to its promises. Thank you Laszlo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Legend. This cream is legendary, and for good reason. I noticed after ONE application at night, I woke up the next morning to find the wrinkles on my cheeks were completely gone. I could not believe my eyes. I love the texture, the easy absorption, and the very mild pleasant fragrance of this cream. Very spendy, but a little goes a long way and the results are amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Age reversal in a jar..... Hands down the most amazing facial moisturizer I've used. I originally purchased this cream to help me through chemo as my skin was so dry. It immediately made a huge difference and my skin was actually younger looking than before chemo. I've stuck with the cream and get compliments all the time. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cream! I bought this formula to use as a night cream. It smells divine and has a very silky feel. It melts right into my skin. I can definitely see improvements in my skin. My supposed rosacea is completely gone. I suspect it wasn’t rosacea at all, just a reaction to the brand of skin care I had been using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No wonder the legends used it There's nothing like it--makes my skin feel hydrated, supple, soft and smooth without a hint of greasiness and absorbs beautifully. Once you've tried it you will wonder how you could ever have lived without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only moisturizer for me Sometimes I take a break from Phormula 3-9 and then wonder what I was thinking! my skin is quite dry and this is the only thing that really quenches it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Results in 2 weeks I first ordered this product 2 weeks ago and I already see results in the fine lines around my eyes and no more crow’s feet. I can put the repair balm all the way up to my lower eyelids without any irritation. I’ll be 63 very soon. I love the feel of the product on my skin. I love how I wake up and my skin is glowing and protected. This product will be in my skin care routine forever. I’m going to try one of Erno Lazlo’s serums next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new favorite to add to my skincare arsenal Absolutely love this product! I have dry, extremely sensitive, reactive skin that is also breakout prone. I use some RX treatments for breakouts that makes my skin even drier. This product is just the barrier I need to protect my skin from the elements. It helps it retain moisture. Absolutely love this cream! I got it on Black Friday with a great coupon code - otherwise, it is super pricey! Watch for sales and snatch it up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My daughter's favorite My daughter loves it so much that she will "take some of my Phormula 3-9 Repair Balm" when she runs out stating, " I reeeeeally miss my cream!" to which I reply, "I get the hint!!". It is a bit too expensive for her pocketbook, but I must admit her skin glows and rarely has breakouts, which she had plenty of times before using this cream. I can only hope she gets a raise soon :-)

What is this suppose to smell like? Mine smells almost like banana pudding. My other EL products have such light scents so just making sure I dont have expired product

Asked by: Casey
This product does contain fragrance and smells somewhat sweet, though we have not heard it described as banana pudding before. However if you would like to check the use by date, please email the batch code on the bottom of the jar to and we check it for you.

How old you have to be to use it? I'm 23 and I'm thinking about ordering it. I have oily skin & some scarring due to acne that I would like to heal.

Asked by: Annast
I would definitely use it no matter what age. It should be very good to minimize any scarring. I rely on it for use in winter after being outside for long periods and after being on the water andin sun in summer.

What is the difference between repair cream and repair  balm (3-9)

Asked by: barb
While both can be used all over your face (or body), the cream is more hydrating and better for a daily moisturizer, and the balm is better in areas that need a little more specialized treatment, because it is thicker.

Will this product help with chest wrinkles?

Asked by: dimi
It does when used as a moisturizer over a serum, AHA, or Retinol product. It truly reduces the "look" of chest wrinkles while the serum or other products repair skin damage.

Will this help acne prone skin and scars?

Asked by: vikki
The Phormula 3-9 line is for skin in need of healing, so it is ideal for scars. For acne prone skin, you may want to look at the Detoxifying & Exfoliating line.

I am 15 with good skin.I do have pigmentation around my lips,dark spots left by hormonal acne and frequent breakouts.I haven't been eating a healthy diet,hence you can see a bit of dullness on my skin.Do you think this cream would help? If not, what will?

Asked by: Janya
This is an excellent cream to keep your skin well-hydrated, but having used Laszlo for many years, I am going to offer another suggestions. Have you considered trying the Sea Mud duo? I used that product in my early twenties and it really stopped my breakouts. Over time, the dark spots on my skin began to fade as the soap does a good job of keeping your skin exfoliated. Hope this helps!

My skin is dry, reddish with a few brown spots and I have dark circles under my eyes. I'm over 65 and would like to get my skin in as good looking/feeling condition as I can. Starting with a moisturizer....I'm undecided between the 3-9 cream or 3-9 balm.

Asked by: Marlene
I am also over 65 and have used 3-9 cream for many years. My skin is well-hydrated with an even tone. People routinely assume I'm in my 50s, which is my best recommendation for the cream! I use the cream for morning and night moisturizer. I use the balm only when my skin is unusually dry (usually winter) and ONLY for night moisturer. I wouldn't recommend the balm for daytime use because it is a much heavier product. My recommendation: start with the cream and then you can decide if you need the balm as well. Hope this helps!
