How does it smell? Fresh water/ Seawater

How does it feel? In between a cream and a wax. Lightweight and easy to work in
Cost? £44 for 59ml / $53 for 2oz

How long did I test for? 6 months on and off.

What I liked? I liked the fact that it doesn’t take long to work in, this makes it convenient for busy mornings. I don’t tend to take much notice of smells unless they are extremely intrusive but I quite liked this one. It made me feels as if I was in California when in fact I was probably somewhere in the Manchester rain. It also leaves a smooth finish after its been on for a while, I thought this could be quite good as a base for applying makeup after.

What I disliked? The biggest thing for me was I didn’t love the waxiness after it had been on for a while. It is not a consistency that sits well on my skin and makes me look too oily. Other than that, I can’t find a fault. I think if you have drier skin than me (I am combination) then it might work better.

Would I buy again? I really like Youth to the People as a brand and when I purchase again I would be more inclined to but the face wash than the cream.

Where can you purchase? Sephora.com, Cultbeauty.com
