What’s good about it?
This is a really lovely moisturiser. Clearly drawing its inspiration from the Far East 'water droplet' technology, this applies as a light cream/almost lotion and then upon patting/gently rubbing the droplets start to appear on the skin, which are then absorbed. The formula does contain marine extracts, which is probably why my skin in particular, enjoys it.
Unlike some of its counterparts, the silicones in this formula work with the ingredients, as opposed to what feels almost 'independently' in some formulas. And by that I mean that there is no 'rolling' a couple of minutes after applying. The formula feels more sophisticated, and Bliss seem to be taking their technology a little more seriously these days. Lovely. Works well when making product 'sandwiches' with more expensive products.
What’s not so good about it?
With the product? Nothing much. Good, solid cream that does exactly what it says on the box and is not extortionately expensive.
