Apply to face and neck after cleansing and toning using fingertips.

This lotion, I don’t even think I can call it a lotion, but rather a sorbet that is infused with all the vitamin E that you’ll ever need. Not only that, but it also has wheatgerm oil, shea butter and soya oil that helps to nourish the skin. It has a really cooling and refreshing feel once applied onto the face. I love how to absorbs oil and deliver a velvety matte finish.

The texture is something that I have never tried before. As you can tell from the photo above, it’s indeed like a sorbet. I like this lotion for its ability to retain moisture but I must admit, I’m not a fan of the texture because it doesn’t react well with my foundation. (I wonder if anyone else have run this problem?) I have tried many different types of foundation and different application methods, but it still leaves residue on my face every time I use this sorbet with any foundation. Thus, I cannot use this lotion in the morning and only at night for me. However, besides this point, it’s a good lotion for anyone who wants moisture without having to sacrifice that matte finish.
