Natural moisturizer for combination skins on a budget
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Rosacea, Sensitive Skin

It is a moisturizer indicated for combination skin because it matifies and balances the skin. It contains 97% natural ingredients.

I used it for a few days in summer and the first thing that struck me was that it has a very pleasant smell. Although it may be attractive in a product I do not like it, because it means that it has a lot of synthetic fragrance. The cream is not as light as I expected and, although it spreads easily and absorbs in a few minutes, I could feel that thin layer/sensation of product layered on top of the skin. Maybe in winter it works better. It's ok, but I did not love it. I would not use it under makeup.

I cannot review long term effects on the skin because you need at least 4 weeks of use to properly see them.

I have to be honest, I bought this product because I went on a trip without a suitcase (don't judge) and only had a small supermarket to buy everything I needed. This was the best product I could find, but in a normal situation I wouldn't have bought it. The main reason is that I don't like the list of ingredients (alcohol, fragrance and some potentially comedogenic components) nor the packaging, I find it unhygienic. I understand that one of the factors to save costs in low-cost products is packaging, but I personally prefer not to skimp on that aspect. That is just a personal choice. Now I use it for the neck area and the neckline to use it up and they feel very smooth.

In Spain, where I bought it, the appearance of the jar on the outside is different, but it has the same shape and the same ingredients as the US product.
