I used it at first for my skincare routine, but it clogged my pores and then I found out that I have a combination skin. However, it is still beneficial for my body after shower. I cover all the neck down my knees and toes and it seals up the moisture amazingly well! I will keep purchasing it for my upper body. I like that it is fragrance free and has no-nonsense ingredient list. One thing that bothers me is its texture that is on the richer side, therefore, it is not suitable for oily-prone skin.
Overall, it is a fantastic product!
My skin has always been calling out for moisture. I'm 35 and have tried most moisturizers high end and not and nothing has helped my skin as much as this cream. Since finally identifying my skins natural barrier was damaged. I did my research on what products and ingredients i needed to help my skin. Finally i have found a moisturizer which is helping my redness, uneven skin tone and hydration levels. Its not heavy so i can apply my makeup on top. At £16 for a huge pot its great value as it will last months. I have been using this product for about four weeks its really has helped my dehydrated sensitive skin. Highly recommended (my laptop wouldnt let me click the star rating *****

It's simply formulated and that's the point, it's great. This moisturizer has been the bedrock of my routine for years, even before I used actives. It's a good final seal and it keeps my face from feeling dry during the day. I have to be real careful when working with actives and this protects me and nourishes my skin barrier so the actives can do their job. I do notice more and enlarged SF on my forehead and nose when I use this, but I compensate with a gentle oil cleanse massage and they clear right up. It's a balance I've been trying to strike for while. I'll never go without this.
I wanted to love this product so bad as it is very hydrating for the skin. However, after months of usage of this product I found out that this cream was giving me closed comedones on my forehead, cheeks and chin. I was so disappointed. After I stopped using this product, my face became entirely clear from all pimples.
