Loving it so far

This has been one of the best facial creams I've used. Well, water gel - the first ever water gel I've tried. I was finding it hard to find a facial hydrating option to wear in the evening, with most creams either irritating my skin or feeling too heavy, but this one so far has been perfect. It feels light but my skin feels smooth, comfortable and happy. I'm curious to see how I will feel in the dry winter months and I have the feeling that I might feel the need for something stronger and so I'm planning to try the moisturizer. I liked this one so much that I would like to also try the cleanser. The price felt high initially but after trying this product it feels like you're paying for quality. You also only need a drop so I feel like it is actually good price/quality. In summary: very happy; good quality for the price.
