Unlike other moisturisers, this does not take time to 'sink in' to the face. It just seems to vanish on applicaton. Having previously used Frankincense Hydrating Cream, this took a little getting used to, but is now a real plus point, making it a great morning cream and excellent smooth base for mineral make-up. Initially concerned that this cream might not give enough moisturisation (due to its feeling light), I am pleased to find it really does. Weeks into use, my skin feels (and looks) very soft and totally protected. Smells beautiful.
