The day cream of this is already more than enough, but this one is somehow creamy in consistency. But this also has the advantage that it can be dosed very economical, it is in fact very economical. For the price this is certainly not entirely irrelevant. The cream can be spread very good, but pulls in contrast to a day cream is not quite as fast. But that's not so bad. The slight greasy disappeared after a few minutes. I have a feeling that regenerates my skin overnight, because after I have now already used more than 4 weeks, I have the feeling that my skin looks fresh even in the morning. In addition, it shows quite clearly that it was very well moisturized. My skin is less dry and since she feels plump and smooth. In terms of skin compatibility so far I could find even anything negative, my skin is so dry and currently also sensitive, but they can withstand this cream very good.
I have been using this moisturiser daily for the last 4-5 months, and can highly recommend it. I have quite problematic skin as I do get the occasional break-out (usually at that time of the month), but my skin isn't overly oily, and I even get some dry, flaking skin from time to time - mostly in winter. I have found that this moisturiser is a great blend of real hydration, while not clogging up my skin or leaving it feeling oily. It feels quite light when you apply it, but has a good creamy consistency, and is absorbed almost immediately into the skin, leaving no residue. My skin immediately feels softer and more even to the touch, and there is absolutely no tightness or irritation. I even use a tiny bit on a finger tip to dab around my eyes, as it feels light enough to do this. I haven't had any problems at all with dry skin this winter, and although I do still get the occasional spot, I don't feel that it's as bad as with some other creams I've tried.
In terms of smell the cream just has a very light, fresh scent, nothing too heavy at all. I barely notice it when I put it on apart from a pleasant freshness.
This is a mid-range cream in terms of price, but as it is very moisturising and spreads easily you don't need to use too much, which does make it good value for money. I have had my jar for a little under half a year and I would say it's probably three quarters empty. That's pretty good I think. I think the jar cost me around 10 or 15 pounds.
If you're unsatisfied with your current moisturiser, I would definitely give this one a try, it's been great for me. I'm giving it 4 stars because while I am very happy with it, it isn't a wonder product or anything - it won't cure your blemishes, or un-do the effects of time, but it will moisturise well and keep your skin soft and smooth.
