I took this moisuriser with me on a winter holiday (extrememly low temperatures) and used it every morning and evening after washing with soap and water. I was surprised that my skin was never dry or flaky as often happens, especially in winter. My skin was smooth and hydrated, not irritated or flaring up in the least. Often I would stroke my face marvelling at how amazingly soft the skin was! I recommend this product for simple moisturisation and protection.
