Whilst looking for a new face cream, this little number popped up and given that it claimed to be '100% Natural, Palm Free, and Cruelty Free,' it ticked a lot of boxes. I was apprehensive at first as it sounded like it had a lot of quite heavy ingredients (I'm looking at you coconut, rosehip and sweet almond oils) and that it may have been too rich for my combination skin, but I took a gamble and bought it. I'm glad I did, somehow it has evened out both my skin tone and texture, banished the dry and patchies I get around the sides of my nose, mouth and cheeks, while not leaving me looking like I took a dip in vaseline. It did take a solid 2 weeks of getting used to it and initially I was put off because it seemed to sink in really fast and still left my face feeling kinda dry, but I solved that problem by using a small amount initially and then 5 mins or so later, applying the same amount again as a second layer. It oddly seems to have done the trick and it means I'm still using the directed amount. My only other bugbear, is that it smells quite sickly sweet, almost like banana marshmallow lollies, but I got used to it pretty quickly and it disappears after an hour or so. Overall a really solid product!
