My skin isn’t very dry and thick creams/gels take a long time to absorb. This is light and absorbs quickly, great for putting on right before my makeup.
I am a super fan of aquafix. I have mild seb dermatitis and use this mixed with the specialist (mandelic+salicylic) every day. I prefer two pumps because for some reason the texture of the cream works better for me if there is ample quantity covering my face.
Unfortunately I had a reaction to this and cannot use.
I have dry skin that gets tight and flakey in the winter, but I have found my dream team in Aquafix and Mr. Reliable!
I'm hooked on Chemist Confessions and love to layer this under my Mr. Reliable. My skin has never looked and felt better.
