How does it smell? Exactly like the cream from them I reviewed before. So fresh water, what I imagine the sea to smell like. Right at the bottom where all the plants that do some major photosynthesis are.

How does it feel? Gel texture

Cost? £32.50 / $36 for 8 oz

How long did I test for? Since November 2017

What I liked? Okay, so this is a great basic cleanser for anyone’s skincare regime. Male or female. Dry or oily. Packaging is beautiful. Its light, makes a clear difference to how fresh I look. I can’t speak for the anti-aging effects of the product because I wasn’t actively pursuing a change in anything anti-aging. The person I can imagine buying this is someone who doesn’t have an extensive skincare collection, nor wants one. A person who likes a few steps and doesn’t mind spending money as long as the product works. I like it mainly because it has antioxidants and polyphenols both helping to protect and mitigate the effects of aging. Protection against sun is THE most important skincare tip I could ever give someone.

What I disliked? If you follow me in any capacity I think you’ll know exactly why this annoys me. I don’t know if I am being completely clueless but once you realise the pump you can’t close/swivel it to lock it again. What does this mean? A lot of wasted product from the escapee product. Major packaging problem.

Would I buy again? 70% without pump fix, 85% if it is.

Where can you purchase? Youthtothepeople.com, Sephora.com, abeautifulworld.co.uk (currently out of stock)
