This is a highly moisturizing lotion. It seems to be taking good care of my skin in the very dry climate I live in. I've also noticed a significant change in my hyperpigmentation. I'm not relying as much on my "illuminating serum" lately. The consistency is a little sticky at first. I think it is simply the lack of fillers in this product. Once it sinks in, my skin is very soft and smooth. I've been using it a month and I'll definitely try another jar.
