I usually use the Cica Balm but purchased this when the Balm wasn't available. It's probably the best moisturizer I've come across for dry, sensitive, or otherwise compromised skin. It feels very rich but not heavy, greasy, shiny, or sticky, so I'm comfortable wearing it during the day as well. Since it's so gentle, it's great for very dry skin, skin that stings with most products, chapped lips, etc, and it has an obvious hydrating/plumping effect on the skin after a few days of use. Many rich moisturizers leave me with pimples or blackheads, but this has just left me with calm, glowy skin. I really like the tube as well. You open the cap, twist the top, then squeeze the tube. The product comes out in a controlled way, so you'll never end up accidentally squirting a lot out and wasting product. This would be great as a last layer before bed for those with normal skin, or as a main moisturizer for those with dry, sensitive skin. It would also work well for those who use potent actives like AHAs and retinoids.
I love using this sleeping pack at night when my skin feels very dry. It is soothing and the texture makes my skin feel moisturized but not sticky.
When I first tried this product I was a bit unsure of the texture because it was very thick and wax like and seemed to be causing some closed comedones. Now that I've started accutane i've began to really appreciate this product. The thick waxy texture is perfect for sealing in all my hydrating and moisturizing layers underneath and actually preventing my skin from drying up again overnight. I've definitely noticed a difference on the nights I don't use this as I wake up with tight, flakier skin in the morning. This product might be a bit much for oilier people but for anyone who has super dry, sensitive skin this product is perfect!
