Thick, but not a problem
I am 79 and my skin is thin; however it is not dry. So I was not sure about this cream since it deals with dryness, as do most creams for women my age. A previous review said they used finger for light touch, excellent recommendation. You can control how much you need. I just lightly run my fingers over the moisturizer and apply. So far excellent results. not greasy and the redness in my skin has calmed down. It has only been days, so I am looking forward to results 6 months from now.
