The cream is so smooth and velvety and feels great as your rubbing it in. It's really soothing and feels like you're giving your skin a drink. I could feel it working away as soon as I was finished rubbing it in and my skin is now as soft as a baby's bottom (love that saying ha!) and feels packed with moisture. There was no stickiness and the immediate wetness you feel after rubbing it in was gone within a minute or so. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this product and will definitely, without a doubt, be buying it again. I will probably also invest in some of the other products in the Soap and Glory range as they are super amazing!
