My Experience

This soft cream is very white, shiny and bouncy.  When I shake the tub, it bounces.  When I dig out a portion and throw it back into the tub, it bounces.  When I use my finger to hit on the cream inside the tub, it shakes and bounces.  Really looks like jelly and pudding.  

I apply this cream at night only.  Dig a little and apply onto my face, eyes and neck.  After many circular rubs and pats, it absorbs into my skin, leaving it sticky and oily.  My face has a luminous shiny coating.

I have the very uncomfortable feeling of my face being wrapped in a layer of lubricant.  In order to feel less sticky and oily, I apply a thin layer.

For the first week, my nose shines the next morning.  After a week, my whole face has the oily shine.  Breakouts and lumps appear. 

After cleansing the oil away, my face is smooth and glowing.  My cheeks feel firmer.  The skin around and lines at the corner of my eyes are smoother. 

I cannot use this rich cream every night.  To prevent my whole face from being oily and having breakouts, I use it on alternate days or 2 to 3 times a week.  When I apply it on alternate days, it is only my nose and forehead that shines.    

At times, when I am tired, lazy or in a rush to catch a drama, apply this all-in-one cream is enough.          

It works well on my hubby’s oily face.  After a few applications, his face is bright and glowing.  But it does not remove the deep lines on his forehead.
