note- got this in the joining free event giveaway...didn't realise the event existed until I got the email.
This cream is very light-blue, and becomes super watery. At first it's sort of soft-but-pudding-like in feel/texture, but when you put it on your face/skin it becomes a very thin, watery layer very, very quickly. You can barely even tell it's there. It's mostly matte, but perhaps a bit dewy? In any case, it doesn't leave very obvious residue. I was very surprised at just how water-like it was afterwards. Although I'm personally more partial to heavier-feeling creams, I liked this anyways. The downside is that you have to spread it quickly or make sure your face is sort of damp so that it covers your face before it melts into it, but the texture is really very nice anyways. It comes with a plastic spatula, and I really liked the design/style of the jar; it's a nice, moderately heavy glass container with a minimal and clean look to it.
It's quite moisturizing despite being so light. I'm not sure if it alone is enough for a dry winter night if you have really dry skin, but it was fine for me during the day and night. I have normal skin that's sometimes a bit dry, and very rarely, some eczema/dermatitis flareups, which the cream didn't irritate. I'm not sure if it was helpful for the eczema -- it might've been, since it was moisturizing, but it was hard to tell -- but it didn't make it worse or sting or hurt at all. It's unscented; you can kind of smell it a tiny bit if you really try, but it's very neutral and fades super fast. I used it for 2 weeks before reviewing it, and I noticed that my face seemed to get a nice sort of glow pretty shortly after I started using it. I'm not sure why, but I'm fairly certain it was due to this cream. My skin was also pretty decently plumped and hydrated in general after using it.
Although I've used it once to twice a day since I received it, I haven't even gotten past the rim, so it actually lasts a surprisingly long time (but I also use reasonably conservative amounts, I guess?). The jar is packed to the very top of the protective cover, as you can see in the above picture from when I first opened it. I expect it'll last at least a couple more months at this rate & amount of use.
