The consistency was at first a little disconcerting for me. It 's more fluid than I had expected initially, but it works to the products advantage in a way because it is super light on the skin and doesn't leave behind a residue like some lotions can. It also definitely moisturizes. I find my skin to be quite dry most days and this lotion worked like a charm, even though it was for normal to combination skin. The formula is super easy to apply and a little goes a long way, which you all know I love using less when I can.
The only real problem I have with it is that it seems to make my skin tingle (in a not so pleasant manner) after I put it on, and this continues until it dries. This isn't particularly going to stop me from using the product, though I may read the ingredients and speak to a doctor to determine if I have some kind of sensitivity to something in the product.
I do hesitate to use any moisturizers around my nose however so I will have to try this out and see how I feel about it on my nose, because it is particularly oily (but somehow my skin is still dry).
