Scent – I really love this scent.  It is very light but smells ever so slightly sweet which I am presuming is from the shea butter and seed oils although there is a fragrance low down on the list of ingredients.

Application/texture – I have the normal to combo skin version which is extremely light and silky.  Even though my skin is often quite dry this is adequately moisturising for day, especially as I wear my primer over the top.  I use two pumps and it rubs in smoothly over my whole face.  I would say this is even nicer and more silky to apply than my prior favourite day cream the Korres Materia Herba.
 
How does it behave immediately?  Immediately my skin looks moist but not oily and plumped and radiant. This is why I love applying it in the morning, as generally when I wake up I look like something out of a horror film.
 
How does it behave after prolonged use – the more I use this the better my skin looks, it works perfectly in conjunction with the primer to really give my skin a lovely glow and a soft smooth texture.  I can hands down say this is the best day cream I have ever used.  The best prior to this one was Korres Materia Herba which I do still love and recommend but this pips it to the post as my new fave just because it makes my skin look totally flawless (smug..moi)?







 
Would I purchase this? Oh hell yes!
 
Would I recommend you purchase this?
I would recommend you buy this, I really really would! I perhaps wouldn’t if you have acne as I have no knowledge of that type of skin so it would be silly for me to recommend you something, but if you have any other type of skin then yes I wholeheartedly recommend this.
