Nice feeling cream, 21 Jan 2015
It’s a nice feeling cream. I can’t vouch for it’s anti aging properties as I mixed it in with some other things I wanted in a face cream. I wouldn’t really think it would work but it’s not expensive so worth a punt I thought. It has been found in some high end creams so who really knows. It’s always mixed in with other ingredients in those.

The cream has a medium, non-stick texture. It’s rich and luxurious, however due to it’s water content you may find it a little more watery than other face creams. It’s also very easily absorbed by the skin and doesn’t leave behind any white marks or residue
