I'd been wanting to try out this range for a while. The lip balm is good and I decided to try a cream next. I'd read better reviews on the light moisturiser but wanted to see if this would be a replacement for my Not So Natural Garnier day cream. Ignoring the somewhat mixed reviews of the SPF moisturiser I purchased, but was very dissatisfied.
At first I thought it seemed nice. A light herbally citrus scent and a creamy textured cream. When I dabbed a little on, it seemed ok.
Next day I was going out in the sun and to do chores, so applied a generous amount to my face before going out. It seemed thick and oily, like an old fashioned sunscreen before they went high tech and sheer. Not having time to do anything more, I gave it a few more pats and went out. My face felt sticky and hot like I'd applied a luxury night cream! I realised that I had probably put too much on, but the label does say apply generously and is after all for the purpose of blocking the sun.
I purposely put some on my chin, aka The Breakout Zone, and no zits! That's a plus. But too late, the damage was done, I was furious with this cream! I even looked up the brand to see if they had a Returns section! I have never bought a cream that smelled light but was a fail on first use. Usually I can tell a fail by the strong fragrance or 3 days later I start getting spots.
Next day I felt like I'd overreacted and used it on my neck and shoulders as a sunscreen only, but it's still pretty sticky and thick. I'd like to give it to someone who loves it as it's clearly wasted on me!
