This is more a hydrating gelly then a cream. When I use this as a cream it makes my skin tight and dry after a few hours. Would definitly reccomend to use a cream or more occlusive product on top. I find this to work well as a hydrating layer between cleansing and moisturising. Absorbs nicely in the skin without a film, leaves skin looking glowy and slightly hydrated. Do not feel like it has any …Read more

I was so excited to try this product out, but it broke me out very badly! My face was very texturised, I was covered in these little hard bumps all over my skin (I think it is the hydrolised HA, sodium hyaluronate doesnt cause this for me). Gave it to my sister and she had the same issue. I use it on my legs now. Did not find this exceptionally hydrating either. It kind of stayed on top of my …Read more

I bought this cream in a last attempt to find a moisturiser that doesnt break out my acne prone skin. It has a very minimal ingredient list, no added benefits. I find this to be a good basic medium moisturiser, not a miracle product, but that is okay for me

+ moisturizes sufficiently without being to much ( not greasy, no dry feeling during the day: leaves my skin feeling …

I have acne prone skin and find it very hard to not pick at it. Eventhough I really try not to, it can be very hard to control the urge sometimes. I bought this gel to apply afterwords.
It is a very slippery silicony gel that never quite dries down (not a matte finish at all as some people say here IMO)
It does feel very moisturising and keeps the wounds from scabbing
I don't …

I have acne prone skin with lots of PIH from old acne spots. I was trying all sorts of acids to get rid of it. First started BHA but this didnt do anything for my spots and made my face dry, thight and uncomfortably shiny. Glycolic acid worked well as an exfoliater but I could not use it more than 2x week without irritation so i didnt see a difference in acne/PIH. Then my sister gave this to me …Read more

this is a great hydrator to add after cleansing and before moisturiser. These kind of products are very hard to come buy in western cosmetics but are great if you have dehydrated skin or are using actives (they also give your moisturiser more slip).
However, I don't find this to provide any healing benefits but that is okay for me. Sometimes it leaves a sticky layer, but that doesnt …
