Not a cream you would recommend for dry, irritated and sensitive skin. Benzyl alcohol is a solvent, preservative and viscosity decreasing agent known to be an immunotoxicant, skin irritant and allergen, cetyl alcohol is a surfactant and emulsion stabilizer suspected to be an environmental toxin, human allergen and skin irritant, sodium benzoate is a preservative expected to be toxic, dangerous and harmful. Even though this cream does have some safe, natural and beneficial ingredients, such as sunflower seed, rosemary, lavender and sage oils, aloe vera leaf juice, manuka honey and calendula, yucca and pansy extracts, sodium benzoate, benzyl alcohol and acetyl alcohol are more than enough to irritate my dry, sensitive and delicate skin. Not something I would order again.
I have tried a whole lot of creams and lotions for irritated skin.

This is a good type. You can use it on your face, or body. It is light, so applies and sinks in easily. The fragrance is apparent, but light and pleasant. It does what it says on the tin.
Do NOT use on wounds

I have always used a calendula cream for small wounds. It usually facilitates healing. When I use this cream on wounds I get a really bad burning sensation. I looked at the ingredients and found cetyl alcohol, benzyl alcohol, and sodium benzoate, as well as other irritating ingredients. These ingredients are drying, and should not even be in a moisturizing cream. I do NOT recommend this cream for anything. It is NOT "soothing" as stated on the container.

I don't like it, I applied it over night after toner and I feel the cream onto my face in the morning, and I feel no moustirize. Just stickiness
I am enjoying this cream

真的很差，给了一瓶快过期。要死赚这种狠心钱，不怕遭报应。 I m really angry due to sending me the expired product. No reliable supplier

It's very moisturizing but not heavy. I have oily skin and I can still use it during the day time prior to mineral makeup. No breakouts, makes skin super soft. Also great for night time. Smells great too.

Didnt use it much yet. It has a great rich feel to it, feels very soothing and thought it feels rich on fat, it doesn't leave a layer on your skin, which i like. But the smell i don't like. I absolutely don't like overperfumed products, and even like it when a product smells very neutral/ "producty". But this cream smells a bit stale/ stuffy to me, which i dislike. To me it could use some more essential oils. Still i will use it, since it works so good and doesnt contain any harsh, non-natural ingredients, which i looooove! Maybe ill add some essential oils myself to make it a more attractive product to myself.
Love the honey film and smell on my skin

It leaves a coating that seems to seal in the moisture that is probably not for everyone, but I like it, and make up application afterwards is smooth. Softens and relaxes dry irritated skin.
