The first thing you notice about this particular cream, aside from the exquisite packaging, is its very strong floral fragrance. It's hard not to think that an entire bottle of perfume was stirred into this frosty green pot, since the Angelica flower is so incredibly pungent. That being said, this is mostly a natural fragrance, therefore it won't hang on to your skin throughout the day like a synthetic fragrance would. My only complaint about the packaging is that the glass jar is quite heavy, and isn't suited for travel. An easy solution would be to scoop a bit of product into a smaller travel container and leave the jar at home, since it is such a bright and beautiful addition to any washroom or vanity.
The cream itself is non comedogenic, meaning it will smooth on without clogging pores. Here is what the product description says: "The Hydra Vital Cream helps to enhance the skin’s ability of self-hydration throughout the day, helping to revitalize and protect it against external aggressions. This cream provides 48 hours of hydration, making the skin seem more comfortable, radiant and protected against external aggressions." - L'Occitane site. You really only need the smallest bit of product to cover the entire face and neck since it is so lightweight. At $48 per 50 ml jar, I could see it lasting at least one year if used daily.
