This expensive, fragrant, jar-packaged emollient rich cream is best for dry to very dry skins not prone to sensitivity. It has a very thick heavy texture and a quite basic formula containing mostly Vaseline, plant oil and lanolin. It lacks skin-repairing, antioxidants, and cell-communicating ingredients. It is also let down by the addition of added fragrance and fragrant ingredients, which could pose problems if you have a sensitive skin. Today this lacks the sophisticated formula and elegant texture you would associate with a cream at this price point.
Why Jar Packaging Is A Problem.
Good modern skincare formulations include antioxidants (like vitamins and retinol), cell-communicating and skin-repairing ingredients. However, you won’t get the benefits of these ingredients to your skin if the product you are using comes in a jar. This is because these ingredients are not stable, which means they won't be effective if exposed to light and air, which is exactly what happens when you take the lid off a jar. Hygiene is of course another issue; dipping your fingers or a spatula into a jar transfers bacteria into the product, which also causes the important ingredients to further deteriorate, making them far less effective.Read more ›

This stuff is heavy and thick; it comes with a tiny spoon for scooping it out, and takes so little of it to cover an entire face that I expect it'll last a year which is certainly something to consider when contemplating the cost. Plus, it made my mom really happy, so for me, it was worth every penny!
