The Prodigy line is the most expensive line amongst the already expensive Helena Robinstein products. So I may list all I want about this product but ultimately it would have to be an individual decision balancing the pros and cons compared to the price, because price IS an issue here!
As the price might suggest, this cream comes in a sturdy glass pot; the pearly outlook giving you the sophiticated and ever so slight modern impression. Given the round design and thick cap (light in weight though), this cream does tend to look rather bulky on your make up table compared to other 50ml creams. Do be careful when using the spatula because given the design and the smooth material, the pot is highly likely to slip easily from your hand!
This is a very slightly off-white coloured cream in a somewhat heavy balm-like texture. It may even feel like a lump of fat when you're scooping out the product with the spatula but never fear! This cream is anything but oily and hence, boasts very quick absorption, only leaving non-sticky skin surface with a pleasant film of moisture.
This cream does have considerable scent and it does tend to stick around for a while. However, it is a nice, classy floral scent so shouldn't be too unpleasant. It may even serve as a delicate eau de toilette fragrance if you don't opt for something strong.
I tend to use this cream at night and when I get up in the morning I find the moisture firmly remaining on my skin. This is not the 'hovering' type of remain of other more oily cream but the soaked in moisture.
Use in moderation; you really don't need all that much anyway and since this is as moisturising cream with tonnes of nutrition, overdose may lead to skin troubles.
It is said that this cream was designed to be anti-aging, however, it doesn't seem to contain any particular ingredients that may tackle fine lines or anything.
Hence, it would be safe to say that this is a lasting moisturising cream that is not oily.
