So, I hate sticky/tacky moisturizers. I know the benefits are hydration and all that jazz, but I just despise them. I really did try to use this (two sample packets), but couldn't do it. It was nice, not a bad smell, thicker than I normally use. I tried a thin layer, rubbed it in really nicely just to see if the tackiness would heed, but it did little to no damage in difference. Love the idea of it, not sure if it evened out my tone or helped with firming, but it did hydrate.
