Packaging. It looks luxurious. It is heavy and the materials used are of high quality. The cap is made of plastic and has a metallic pink color that illuminates and the container itself is hard to determine if it is plastic or glass which is semi-opaque, light pink, and has shimmers on it. Aside from cap, there is also a lid so that the cream won’t stick to the cap.
How to apply? As the last step of skincare, apply gently according to the texture of the skin and tap lightly to absorb it.
Scent. There is a flowery scent. It has a hint of Jasmine scent but it is not included in the ingredients.
Application. A little goes a long way so this tub will probably longer that a month. It was very easy to apply and glides smoothly.
Effects. It really makes the skin look glowy but not to the point where the face is greasy. My face felt as if I have baby skin.
Comfortability. I wore it the whole day and there were no irritations.
Verdict. It does moisturize my face but I can smell the scent while wearing it. I am not a fan of flowery scent.
