Bought this after reading good reviews, and after Pangea Organics Italian Mandarine & Rose moisturizer wrecked major havoc on my skin! Needed a simple and gentle moisturizer for everyday use, and to fix this mess.

I like this cream very much, as almost a week after using it, the red blotches and pimples from the Pangea Organics moisturizer calmed down and disappeared. It can feel a bit too matt, and hard to spread if i did not apply it asap straight after toner, or when my fingers were too dry. I guess the trick is to use it straight after shower while skin is still a bit damp. Anyway, the moisturizing effect is pretty good (it's late autumn here) despite it not being a proper moisturizer. Makeup goes on pretty smooth after that too!

One thing i hate is the packaging, as many here do. It's tricky to handle aluminum tubes, and i have wasted much cream by accident. Used them on elbows and knees when it happened. Ok, will still buy this product since it is the cream that counts :)

UPDATE: Indeed after using this too long without additional moisturizer, the skin on my nose started peeling, maybe from lack of moisture and the weather getting colder and dryer. So, i added a light moisturizer on my nose and cheeks after this calendula cream (which is not oily, pretty smooth) and it helped! No whiteheads formed from this cream as of now, just one or two surface clogs which is fine :)
