Experience

How often to apply

Whenever you skin feels dry!

Texture

Comes out as a mint green paste that spreads easily. The cream does leaves a nice cooling sensation on the skin without causing any irritation.  The cream also absorbs  into the skin after a minute or two without leaving a heavy feeling on the skin. 

Smell

The cream has no notable scent to it at all! 

Personal review

2/5

Okay, I have been using this cream consistently for a good 3 weeks and I have to say that although I love the key ingredients, I am just not sure of its calming and repairing benefits. The cream does leaves the skin feeling hydrated, cooled and dewy but as recently I have been breaking out around my cheek area, I didn’t see any noticeable calming and repairing effect from this product. The La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Repairing Balm definitely is much better in its repairing and calming properties with a much better price point.

Also, I personally think that this cream is not best in terms of its formulation as upon application it does take awhile for it to be absorbed into the skin. I have tried many moisturizer with better absorption capabilities that delivers similar or if not better hydration level.

Other than that, because I am prone to having clogged pores it kinda put me off from continuous usage of the product after knowing the fact that the cream also contains pore clogging ingredients such as shea butter and cetearyl alcohol.

Honestly, I may be expecting too much out of this cream. I have to say that I do not recommend this cream. This product not only did not meet my expectation in terms of results and formulation, it also is too pricey for a mediocre product! There are definitely better creams out there. 

  • cooling sensation
  • leaves skin moisturized 
  • great ingredients such as centella asiatica extract to help strengthen and protect the skin barrier
  • no scent
  • leaves a matte finish
  • Pore clogging ingredients : shea butter, Cetearyl alcohol
  • Expensive
  • Did not notice significant calming and repairing effect
  • Does not get absorb as quickly as I thought it would
  • May not provide sufficient protection during harsh winter months
