Alaffia Antioxidant Face Cream Rooibos & Shea Butter -- 2.3 fl oz
I have been using this cream as an under-makeup product for several years. It has had the right consistency and no overly perfumed smell. In my last order I've noticed it is more watery in consistency, which I do not like. So if this continues and is not some kind of fluke, I'll be looking for a new product for this purpose.

Packing Picture is Incorrect
While I have only used it once, I know I am going to love the product, as I have purchased Alaffia products before, and have always enjoyed them. HOWEVER, that said....I deducted one star because I am quite disappointed in the packaging. The picture shows it in a pump, which I prefer. When it arrived, it was in a tube, which I do not like.

Alaffia is just all around awesome. I use this as a lighter daytime moisturizer and the neem oil version for heavier daytime moisturizing. Both are absolutely great! They leave my skin nice and smooth and look great under makeup too. All this without those dreaded silicones that almost ALL moisturizers have to make your skin "feel" smooth, versus actually nourishing your skin to help make it actually smooth. Silicones cause cystic acne in lots of people but this lovely moisturizer leaves skin soft, smooth and nourished with no bad ingredients. I use their shampoos and conditioners as well as they are completely sulfate free (not just free of sodium sulfates but ALL sulfates and harsh surfectants), silicone free, and paraben free. My skin and hair has never been happier! Alaffia proves you don't need that chemical gunk to make your skin and hair glow!!!

Cream separated into a thick cream and thin liquid
I really did not like the face cream, it just did not seem to work for me. Then before I was a 1/4 of the way through the bottle the cream separated into a thick cream that would not come out with, or without, the pump. All I could get was a very thin water-like liquid. I tried shaking it, but that did not help, so I just poured all of the liquid out. But the cream left in the bottle was too thick to come out no matter how hard I tried to shake it out. Finally just tossed it as lost cause.

I'm still trying this out, but so far I think it's of good quality and works well as a skin moisturizer. I probably just need to do a little portion control.
