PERFORMANCE

The things I like most about this cream is that it is fragrance-free and comes in a <100ml sized tube, making it transportable and TSA-friendly.

Beyond that, this cream did not work for my skin at all.

Despite having a thickish texture, this cream was not substantial enough for my dry skin, even in summer. If I apply too much, this cream would not sink in and the minute I step outside into 90+ degree LA weather, it melts into an oily mess. If I apply a reasonable amount, it doesn’t seem to do anything. On days I used air conditioning, I would have dry patches around my nose by the end of the day. On days without air conditioning, my skin would feel parched and dehydrated.

I have sensitive skin and did not notice any soothing or calming effects from the panthenol. It also did not irritate my skin, which is a positive, but overall, definitely a let down.

Overall Score: 2.5/5
