This is SUPER THICK (we're talking frosting, cream cheese, frozen butter- just REALLY thick) cream for very dry skin. I have to admit, when I opened the jar and saw the giant slab of opaque yellow solid goo inside, I was a little wary. But then I put a tiny bit on my fingers and applied it to my sorta dry skin, and MAGIC. It only takes a tiny bit, but it instantly got rid of the flaky dry skin and redness I have going on from cold weather, sun exposure, over-exfoliation (and Retin-A), and an over-chlorinated pool.
In addition to providing instant relief that didn't just last a few minutes, I noticed a vast improvement in my skin tone and texture in the following days.
So i am sold. This stuff may be thick and very "tincture"-esque upon first glance, but it has really improved my skin. You can use as much or as little as you need, so if you are looking for a sheer moisturizer, just tap your fingers into the jar and you can get a very light application. The way the cream is sort of a "solid" that you glide your fingers over as opposed to be a dollop of lotion that sticks to your skin lets you be in control of how to apply it.
