The naturally occurring pigment in Astaxanthin (it may interest you to learn that this incredibly powerful antioxidant is 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C!) lends the product the vibrant orange colour. Accordingly, your face will look more orange than usual with this product on. But no worries because the discolouration washes off easily.

Another thing of note is the scent: to me, it has the sharpness of a million juiced carrots (and some whole lemons) tempered with a hint of flora. Please tell me you smell the same thing?

It has the most insanely pleasing jelly-like texture and it wobbles back to its original, pristine condition after being thoroughly shaken up. There is an increase in plumpness and my skin also feels so much smoother; the improvement was visible from the very first use!

I think it is a better choice for those with drier skin because oilier people could get into a pickle with this one. It takes a while to sink in and it gives the skin a dewy glow that could be mistaken as an oily sheen. Nonetheless, I find it superb for bad skin days when I like to bang on something rich overnight to keep dryness and flaking away.

I will be testing this further, in fact, under different conditions: it is coming along with me to battle cold winds and central heatings sometime next month! Look out for an update!
