I was super skeptical at first, I tried it on the back of my hand and it was super thick and left an iridescence, however, after purchasing it to give it a go, I later found that even though my skin is oily/combo, a night cream is usually supposed to be thick and my skin still managed to absorb all of it, and the iridescence in it is actually meteorite dust which is a natural ingredient that improves the skins glow and prevents premature aging. I have to say, I've been through many moisturizers and this is the best of them all personally for my skin. I've been using it for over a month and I noticed a HUGE difference in my skin, I found my skin smoother, healthier, and a natural oil free glow! (I think the amount of moisture it provides my skin, has helped control the amount of oil my skin would naturally produce to keep itself from being dry, hence my oily/combo skin.) I also noticed I stopped breaking out a lot too after using it but this is just a personal experience. Over all LOVE!
