Applying to the skin morning and evening, the light moisturiser instantly hydrates the skin when massaging gently with upwards motions. I was really impressed on how quickly the moisturiser absorbs into the skin and it does not feel sticky or greasy afterwards. Using on its own, it also works excellently over serums and under any sunscreens you may use, making it a perfect moisturiser to use in any skin care regime. Light enough to be worn in the warmer summer climates, whilst providing hydrating protection in the colder months, try the Birchwolf Vita-Protect Facial Moisturiser for all year-round great skin care, x Neil.
