My experience with this product–
I loved the simple and elegant packaging of this product which comes in a subtle grey color with a transparent white cap. It’s a travel friendly product and very sturdy. If you have come across their product description they have mentioned NMF which means Natural moisturizing Factors which are naturally present in our skin help to protect skin hydration levels. It keeps the outer layer of the skin protected and well hydrated.
The texture of the product is thick, smooth, silky like silicone but it is silicone free product. It has got mild fragrance. The consistency is pretty thick and spreads easily on the skin. Being thick it takes some time to get absorbed into the skin leaving it non greasy.I have a combination skin tone its provide me with enough hydration and so far it has worked amazingly on my skin here in Dubai climate which is quite hot and humid. I use this product in morning as it keeps my skin hydration level up entire day.
When I started using this new product, the 1 week I have seen a slight breakout and thought the product was not working on my skin as it took enough time to get absorbed in the skin leaving it oily. But I was wrong, the next week it started doing wonders and observed skin texture getting improved. Once you start using you will know how much product is required by your skin. For example, dry skin people will need more products compared to oily skin people.
Overall, I really loved the product, and it has become my morning ritual to apply this moisturizer before leaving home. It has improved my skin texture leaving it very soft and hydrated. It has moisturized my skin throughout the day. Just for oily skin type it can breakout your skin so be careful with the quantity. I would honestly recommend this product to everyone as its literally food for your skin but as I say all skin are different go with 30 ml product first so that you have an option to swith.
