It’s less of a cream and more like a lotion. Absorbed really quickly by my parched skin and doesn’t leave it feeling greasy. I tried it on my face and it feels like there’s a layer of something on which is not my favourite. Although after I dabbed in on a couple of flaky dry spots on my cheeks they disappeared after a few minutes! Much prefer it as a body lotion for both me and my kids. Doesn’t have a strong scent so it won’t clash with whatever perfume you’re wearing.
