Where do I begin? I love this product! Never even thought about putting this cheap, old-school creme on my face until I read a comparison on nivea creme and creme de la mer. The review stated that they are very similar in texture and ingredients, but nivea costs $1 for an ounce where as creme de la mer is over $100!!! I picked it up on a whim and fell in love! I rarely rave, but here I go... I love anything with glycerin in it because it pulls moisture from the air onto your skin. I use a small pea-sized amount, rub it between my palms and pat and press firmly into my cheeks, jawline, under eye, eyelids then pressing excess into my forehead. It's a thick consistency, hard to spread unless you literally pat and press. You may feel as though a pea-size won't do it, but it will turn you greasy if you use too much. That also means it lasts longer!!! It's costs $1 for an ounce (AMAZING) and that ounce usually lasts me a month. I slather it under my eyes and on my lids at night time as an eye cream because I generally think eye creams are a rip off. Just thicker moisturizers. I tend to use oils, serums and thick creams around the eyes in place of a fancy eye cream. This leaves my skin dewy and comfortable, but I suggest you use only a tiny amount even if you're overly dry like myself because too much will clog your pores. I never thought I could find a good creme for my face like this one that doesn't aggravate and actually moisturizes. I notice a great deal of a difference with my under eye bags, black-heads around the nostrils and on the nose have nearly vanished and my smile lines are almost non-existent thanks to this miracle creme. I'd rate it higher if I could. Enjoy!
