      I loved this. I used it on dry spots on my elbows and face and it instantly softened and moisturised the area leaving my skin looking much better. It lasted well too. I am going to carry this with me as it works much better than my usual cream.

      Looks nice but the effect didn’t last
      The bottle looks well made and it has a really luxurious lustre but when I put it on it felt like it was tightening the skin but it didn’t really look any different and also seemed to loose lustre after adding moisturiser.

      I was really impressed by this. The eco credentials led me to think it wouldn’t last (most nail varnishes don’t see out the day on me). But just two coats and a week later and no chips or scratches. Impressed.

      Too thin
      Not a fan. I like my serums thicker than this - even with shaking the product as instructed, the liquid thickened up only marginally. It's very tricky to apply to your face as it just runs off your finger if applying that way or down your face if applied straight to face.
