✅: Though I have dry skin, this gel cream was more moisturising than I thought it would be. I had initially purchased it to be used as a treatment step, but now I can use this as a moisturiser in the morning along with my SPF. I have noticed that my inflamed ocasional breakouts calm down much quicker when using this gel. It has a really nice cooling effect whilst applying - it spreads BEAUTIFULLY, and the texture is nice gel which absorbs quickly. The combination of centella and tea tree is amazing for reducing irritation on my skin, and I love using this when I strip down my routine to the very basics every now and then.
❎: The formulation now contains limonene and linalool, joining the bergamot fruit oil (which by the way, has been moved up the ingredient list so has increased in concentration). These are known to be the “fragrance” in the product, hence the strong smell when you first open it. This can be potentially irritating and sensitising to many skins, though iUNIK have expressed that this cream is still safe for sensitive skin. If essential oils and added fragrance is something you know your skin is not a fan of, I would avoid this product. Personally, I wasn’t aware of the fragrance and it is something I make sure to avoid - essential oils normally break me out. However, this product didn’t so there’s a thought to be considered. When it comes to repurchasing though, I am a bit put off.
