I bought this product because I started a series of professional chemical peels from Skinmedica and they recommended to use this cream after each peel. I am so glad I had it. It helps sooth, hydrate, heal, calm, and mend the skin. When my skin started peeling this cream was all I used, constantly throughout the day! It did not cause any breakouts or look shiny through the day even though its a bit of a thicker cream texture. I love everything that I have purchased from Skinmedica, and nothing has let me down yet.
