The packaging is quite 'royal' looking with the sturdy box and deep purple color. I like how the box contains some rather interesting information, see below for the percentage of users who felt 'Intense Satisfaction' with the cream ;).
The tub is extremely large and is packed to the brim with product. In a weeks worth of use twice a day, I only used product from the lid, so this will last you a long time. However, the packaging combined with the runny nature of the product is not travel friendly- it had leaked all over the inside of the box when I received it.
Upon application, the product breaks down quickly and forms water droplets on the skin! I have never used a cream like this before and was quite taken with the dew drop effect at first. Unfortunately the droplets do not absorb into my skin easily at all and sit on the surface of my skin for around 20-30 minutes. After the cream is either absorbed (or evaporated as I suspect), my skin feels dry and tight! This is definitely not an intensive moisturizer and needs to be used in conjunction with other products.
Before I started this cream, my skin was good, blemish free and even (for me anyway) from using my Doctorcos sheet free mask and Nature Republic's aqua cream together. Once I started using this product my skin very gradually turned patchier, redder and low and behold on the 7th day I got a huge pimple! I haven't had a pimple in so long that I thought it was a mosquito bite at first!
