I don't have particularly dry or neglected skin, however, I do get spots and I do have scars from them. I wanted a nurturing cream to help heal my skin and after one use of a sample of this cream given to me in store, I noticed an improvement. I use it as a night cream. I'm not a believer in "miracle creams" and think good skin comes from the inside, however, this cream is just lovely and feels like it's "feeding" my skin. It feels and smells divine and my boyfriend always tells me my face smells like a hot cross bun when I get in bed at night after using this! I love it.
