This cream actually feels more like a gel cream and it is the least heavy cream in this review. This cream has a heavy perfume smell. It is not unpleasant but I prefer it unscented.

Review

We cannot have a hydrating cream comparison review without Laneige. Despite that it is the least heaviest cream, it is still very hydrating. It is non-greasy and absorbs quickly in the skin, making it as a great day-time cream. However I rarely used because it was not hydrating enough for me during these dry months. If I am outdoors, after an hour my skin feels like I did not put the cream on. It does not give me the “protective” moisturizing layer I am looking for. I would either layer this or just save it for when my skin is less dry. Plus unlike the other moisturizing creams, this does not have a focus on anti-aging. I would recommended this product for oily skin under 20 or to wear under makeup.
