It feels like water with slight oily feel. I like it because I have dry skin. It helps make my makeup look moist and glowing. Great for glass skin makeup. It has a light expensive rose scent. I don't mind the smell. A little goes a long way, no need to use too much. It spreads well. Try not to get it to close to the eyes because it'll sting. My eyes are very sensitive even aloe vera gel stings my eyes. Overall it is good for dry skin or people who want to achieve a moist glowing glass skin makeup look.
