Texture & Scent:


Although this is labeled as a creme, this has a gel-ish texture instead! I love how instantly this sinks in without any sticky feel behind, and the makeup just glides on smoothly afterwards! This is suitable for both day and night use, though i find that this is not as moisturizing as what i'd like for my night creams. This definitely brightens up my complexion too! :D

This has a lovely floral scent that i love! :D

Packaging:


This moisturizer comes in a plastic jar with a screw off cap:



This one comes with a lid too to keep out moisture and air:



The box it came in:



Price & Availability:
This moisturizer costs US$38 / RM160 each, and is available at most asian MAC stores. It's available now on Maccosmetics.com too! :)


My $0.02:

I've been itching to get a tub of this ever since my MA gave me a sample of this creme! And after using this cream for almost 2 months, i think i can safely now say that I'm still really loving this! :D

This is light enough for day use, yet sufficiently moisturizing as a night cream. This makes my foundation / BB cream glides on like buttahh too!! :D And oh, the scent is just lovely!! :D

My only gripe? I wish that this was even more moisturizing! While it's not as moisturizing as the H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Facial Treatment, it gives the same moisturizing effect if i layer this cream over the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion. For a super brightening boost I'll layer this over my beloved Lancome Blanc Expert Neurowhite Emulsion before i go to bed, and wake up with uber glowy skin!!

All in all i'm really loving this product, and I will definitely repurchase this when I run out!! :D
