I love this conditioning cream! My face is combination so some areas are oily and some dry patches. I'm not sure what it is but it does make my face a bit brighter when I put this on. I use this under my make up or just by itself. I only use it in the morning after all the serums. I feel like it keeps my face protected. I love that it has SPF. I've repurchased this over and over and will continue to repurchase.
