What I think :
This really is light! It’s a thin runny liquid but don’t be deceived into thinking this means you need a lot of this product – about a pump will cover your face as it smooth’s in very easily. It does create a lovely base for makeup as it soaks in really quickly but still leaves the skin hydrated and not at all oily or greasy. (you also get a slight radiance J )
This may be light but it isn’t an oil free skin matifier – it contains lovely oils and extracts to moisturise and protect your skin. This means it should still work well on dryer skins and especially skins that are feeling a little sensitive or have been under a lot of stress ( from weather, stress, other products etc.)
For the reasons above a really nice day cream to give hydration and a little glow to the skin but I also reach for this at night sometimes when I don’t fancier a thicker/heavier product ( and it isn’t a liquid gold night) – cooling so nice to use at night in the summer – still get the hydration and skin benefits but no heavy layer.
Definitely worth a purchase this one
