I struggle with drier skin in winter with increased sensitivity - often a moisturiser I use frequently in warmer months can make my skin feel a bit irritated in winter. I also find that some moisturisers seem to mask the dryness for a short while, only for the dry feeling to return as the day wears on meaning I feel the need to apply more. I was pleasantly surprised by this cream - not only did my skin feel hydrated after applying, it felt hydrated for the rest of the day. It's great that this a fragrance-free product, and it really is fragrance-free. There's no chemical scent at all like some other fragrance-free products have.
The cream has a nice, thick consistency; and I found that I didn't need to use as much of the product as I would with others. It absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a 'film' or any sheen. Can easily be worn under make-up, although I did find it was best to leave some time between applying the cream and any primer or foundation as it felt like it pilled a little if I applied primer straight away.
Because it is so hydrating, my skin did look fresher after using each morning. The jury is still out on my fine lines - they were less visible, but I think this is because of the extra hydration my skin was getting. I'm definitely going to continue using this cream, and it will be interesting to see the long-term results of incorporating this cream into my skin care regime. The only thing that would improve this cream is if they could add SPF.
Overall, I think this is a great value-for-money cream and one I'd recommend to someone looking to add something extra to their daily routine.
