This is just jam packed with great ingredients mainly for soothing, but I didn't feel this was very hydrating. This also left a kind of tacky finish for a bit and because this wasn't very hydrating, I added on my HA serum before using this product one time and it made my skin so sticky. Due to this tacky feeling, I also feel like the serums that comes after this product will not be able to fully be absorbed.
For the soothing benefits, I would say this did a good job in doing it. My skin did calm down a bit, but was a Slow Start.
I will say though, that I recently really damaged and stressed out my skin from trying out a specific product. But I guess this was an opportunity to test the claim of being non irritating. What I got was that my skin still stung a little bit (this may have been just due to how sensitized my skin was at the time) but not as much as other products that I've tried and I was okay with before this happened.
I was able to use this, but because of the tacky feeling, not left feeling hydrated, and not having an instant relief on my damaged and irritated skin, I didn't reach for this product during that time.
I did like the pump, it feels like I will get a controlled amount and will get every last drop of the product when I'm near its end.
