Summary
I had a sample sized version of this product which does not have the same packaging as the full sized version. The moisturiser has a thin texture and I needed to react quickly so as not to lose the amount I squeezed from the sample tube. The product carries the smell of the ingredients used in the formulation but sadly the lavender oil wasn't perceptible among these. Unfortunately this may not be tolerable to some users. I found the smell very off-putting on application and I was aware of its odour throughout the day. The product is absorbed easily and moisturises well, but I was very disappointed that products by this brand did not live up to my expectation. I found it was a struggle to persevere to finish the sample and I wouldn't choose this cream again through choice.

This company tests on animals so I wont be buying this and I threw the sample away as it smelled horrible.
This as the product description says, is a face moisturiser and it is quite a light textured cream, almost a slightly thick liquid, really runny.

It is a creamy colour, slighty yellow cream not white, it looks a bit like runny snot!!.It soaks in very quickly and leaves my skin feeling matt yet moisturised so quite a good base for wearing any make up as it is not at all greasy. I think it wuld be a good one for anyone with very greasy skin as it certainly moisturises and is not at all heavy or oily feeling.
It has a very odd scent in my opinion, sort of sour milk, lemony citrus arom but slightly sour and not really that pleasant. I find it makes me feel slightly sick after a while and the smell does linger on my skin rather longer than I would like.

I didn't have any reaction while using this and it gave me five days of use as a day moisturiser only.
i used this after cleansing my face, toning , applying my serum then this. i always wait five minutes between applying my serum and any moistuiser so that it sinks in completely and stars to do its work.

I am not sure that the foul smelling lactic acid can actually exfoliate the skin at the same time as moisturising but could be wrong. I also find the claim that this leaves skin so wonderfully radiant that no make up is needed is hard to believe as surely that depends on the type of skin and the age of the person using this moisturiser.
The ingredient beta glucan, is extracted from the yeast cell wall is a powerful antioxidant and is a natural product. It has been used orally for some time but recently the molecules hve been able to be reduced so that the skin can now absorb them hence anti aging creams now make use of this ingredient.

If this was less awful smelling I might have been tempted but that combined with the fact that many ingredients are far from natural and the fact that they are not a cruelty free company means that this product will not be on any shopping list of mine any time in the future.
