This leaves to my sensible, mixed skin a nice, healthy color and the scent is pleasant, strongly herbal – therapeutic. The most sensible parts of my face yearn for more (perhaps more moisturizing?) but in whole, my face is glowing and the color is more stable after a week use. I have used this balm as a cleanser with a wipe-cloth and as a night cream/mask. Ideal quality product for traveler. Stays for daily use.
