My Reviews: 
I have trialled this product over a period of 10 days now.

When I first received the product, I was assuming that it would be a typical face moisturiser. However, the thick cream consistency would mean to say that it would have the "sun cream" feel and consistency due to the number of active ingredients present in the product. 

It does not seem to have any fragrance (fragrance free) which is good for those who have a sensitivity to fragrances.

I have used this product over my toner, and before application of my normal BB Cream, which so far has not posed much of a problem for me.

My Reviews: 
Toners are important as they help prep the skin prior to the application of the moisturiser, as the beauticians at the salon that I frequent for my monthly awaited facials each month. The use of toners helps the effective absorption of the moisturiser.

As my skin ranges between between dehydrated/dry/sensitive, I was sent this product for trialling purposes. I have at the time of this post, trialled this product of a duration of over 10 days which was integrated into as part of my daily cleansing face regime. (i.e., cleanser, toner, moisturiser).

The Soothing Protection Spray left my skin feeling soothed. When used effectively with a cotton pad, it helped remove the last traces of make-up before the application of the face moisturiser (and there was a lot left!). It also helped made the pores shrink and gave a calming effect.
