You can see by the state of this tube that it’s been well loved! This is by far and away one of my all time favorite moisturizers.
Why I think it’s unique: I find this cream to be the perfect balance of everything I want from a moisturizer–elegantly minimalistic, comforting and substantial, but not overly heavy/rich. Also, I know this is inconsequential to its performance as a cream, but not to the experience it provides–something about the way it smells is (IMO) divine–not floral or perfume-y, maybe more on the herbal medicinal side, but more elegant than that. There are some essential oils listed in the ingredients list, if sensitivity to those ingredients is a concern for you.
Who I think might enjoy it: I think this could suit a very wide range of skin types. I would particularly recommend it to anyone with stressed-out or reactive skin.
Ingredients: Ingredients in bold* are ones I’m particularly excited to see in the lineup.
