Firstly, if you glance through the ingredients list, you'll see that corn oil is listed as the second ingredient. That struck me as a little odd because I've never really seen corn oil used in cosmetics before. A search on Cosmeticsdatabase showed that corn oil is ranked as a level 2 low hazard ingredient with cancer, toxicity, and reproductive toxicity as possible concerns.
In addition to corn oil, this product also contains preservatives, a fatty alcohol, parabens and salicylic acid in low amounts. If you are allergic or concerned about putting any of these chemicals onto your skin, you know what to do.
Ok, Chemistry lesson over, now onto what I like about this cream.
I've been using this cream as a day and night moisturiser for the past month and a half, and at first I felt the cream was too greasy and heavy for use as a spring/summer day cream, but as I continued using it, I found that if I spend some time rubbing the cream into my face, it actually absorbs completely with no residue! Instead it leaves my skin very soft, smooth and moisturised.
I've also noticed that the dark marks from old acne marks and the redness from new acne marks have begun to fade! I haven't changed anything in my skin care regime, I still wash my face with Lush cleansers, and use a sheet mask twice a week, the only thing I've added was this cream, so the scar fading effect must be coming from this cream. My skin right now, is amazingly clear and bright!
I don't know if I can comment as to its wrinkle busting claims because I don't really have any wrinkles (yet!). I have some underneath my eyes, but I don't know if they're real wrinkles or not cos they sometimes just disappear, like after I do a mask. But I haven't gotten any MORE wrinkles so does that mean it works? haha!
I don't use a face primer, so my foundation goes directly on top of this cream. By the end of the day, the foundation around my nose will be a bit patchy, but the rest of my face just looks a bit dewy, not oily. Also this cream seemed to have stopped my Studio Fix Fluid Foundation from oxidising - I remembered it oxidised like crazy last summer!
This cream does have quite a strong distinctive smell, it's not unpleasant, at least not to me, it's almost like a very heavy rose scent? After a month of use, I don't notice the smell much any more.
The one thing I really HATE about this product is the packaging - it comes in a metal tube, very much like an old toothpaste tube. I really don't like metal tubes, I find them hard to get product out of and feel that any moment the tube will leak T.T
I'm a bit OCD so I fold up the tube as I use it xD
