I like the way Dr Botanicals products are packed as they come in classy looking old fashioned cardboard boxes. The brand name is in black text with its logo of a leaf. It looks minimalist but expensive. Each order comes with a card saying thank you for the order and explaining that they are the world’s Number 1 vegan skincare brand and use environmentally conscious packing.
This moisturiser is a night treatment with some great active ingredients which I will go into a bit later. The product comes in a glass jar with a screw top lid which is not only all recyclable but keeps the contents in good condition. I also kept mine in its original cardboard box to keep out any light which might damage the contents.
The disadvantage of the jar is that you have to use your fingers to get the product out each time so make sure you keep your fingers clean before putting them in the jar. You could of course use a small spoon or spatula to get the amount out that you need but I couldn’t be bothered to do that each time.
The actual contents are a cloudy dull creamy colour and the cream is very light feeling and not at all heavy and greasy which most night treatments are.
I apply this at night after I have cleansed and toned my face. I first apply my serum then after that has been absorbed I apply this product. It isn’t cream, it is a cross between a cream and a gel in texture and very light . It feels cool and fresh when I apply it and it soaks into my skin very quickly, so quickly that I almost feel that it should be richer and more greasy and in fact do tend to apply some facial oil after this has soaked in.
