I applied the cream directly after cleansing and followed with sunscreen daily. The cream is white with a soft rich buttery texture and its easily absorbed. It comes in a rather fancy looking black glass tub and has a lovely scent to it. The cream feels absolutely heavenly when applied. Never has my skin felt so soft as when I was using this cream. However, I did not see any visible signs of correction in the appearance of my skin, only improvements in texture and feel in the 4 weeks that I used the sample tub. It costs about R705 for a 50ml tub and in my opinion for that kind of money I would expect to see my skin tone improving and my pimple scars and spots fading over time.
