This is the ultimate hydration cream. My skin felt super soft about 3 days or so into start of use. It may have anti-aging properties, however, I use this cream in addition to other anti-aging products. However, when I feel the effect in the morning when I use very few products and the amount of hydration I get is amazing. This is a must-by and I will be purchasing again!

Leaves my skin with a nice chok chok feeling. Really helped when my moisture barrier was compromised from over exfoliation. I had to ease it into my routine because it was a bit too rich in the beginning. My skin is very clog prone though.

I love using this moisturizer in the winter when my skin needs a bit more moisture than usual
