Product directions: Smooth into skin as often as needed. Daily use will prevent over-dry skin from recurring.

My thoughts: I was quite impressed with this moisturiser. It smelled lovely on my skin and it was quickly absorbed. It moisturised my skin well and kept dryness at bay. It is a great size and the convenient pump bottle allowed for mess free application.

Product ingredients: water (aqua), glycerin, mineral oil (paraffinum liquidum), stearic acid, glycol stearte, stearamide, petrolatum, dimethicone, tocopherol, tocopheryl acetate, chamomilla recutita (matricaria) flower extract, helianthus annuus (sunflower) extract, sambucus nigra flower extract, primula veris extract, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, glyceryl stearate, cetyl alcohol, triethanolamine, acetylated lanolin alcohol, cetyl acetate, magnesium aluminum silicate, carbomer, propylene glycol, propylparaben, methylparaben, DMDM, hydantoin, disodium EDTA, sorbitol, fragrance (parfum), yellow 5 (CI 19140).


The pros:

  • nice fragrance
  • quickly absorbed
  • protects against dry skin
  • provides soft smooth skin
  • conveniently packaged
  • reasonably priced for the quantity


The cons:

  • contains mineral oil which may contribute to blocked pores in some people


Would I purchase this again?: I really enjoyed using this moisturiser and I would definitely buy this again.
