Rich and nourishing creamy white oil. Very calming, I use this on my face and body when I have allergy flare ups and my skin can tolerate little else. Easy to rub in and sinks in quickly. Makes skin feel very silky and protected. Great for the cuticles, hands and lips. Has a faint natural scent that goes quickly. In summer this is a liquid, in very cold winters its a mushy solid, may need warming to get it to dispense. On a par with the deep moisturisation of Shea Butter but easier to work with and smells better (Shea butter has a slight acid scent that isn't bad but takes getting used to). I'm not keen on the dropper provided with this brand, I added my own pump and its much cleaner.

Natural mineral sunscreen based on Zinc Oxide. Difficult to rub in evenly over anything except bare skin.PROS:- Light thin cream with a faint waxy sunscreen like scent- Only a slight white cast- Doesn't clog pores- Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin- Not drying but not heavy or greasy- Gives skin with a glowy but not overly shiny finish- Removes easily with regular cleanser- Pump packaging makes it easy to dispense the right amount you want (although mine didn't work at first until I gave the base a large 'whack', to make the product settle, its slightly thick and the pump was initially sucking air).CONS:- Practically unwearable, balls up over or under nearly everything I have tried it with. I end up with super obvious white streaks and what looks like obvious peeling globs PVA glue on skin. The only way I can get it to work is patted, not rubbed over one of my moisturisers with nothing else, or, rubbed on the backs of my hands. Can't get it to work over serums, facial oils or any of my other moisturisers. Can't get it to work with any makeup, not liquid, cream or powder, with or without primer.
