Carrot Nutritive Day Cream
what i'll use until i'm dead
I absolutely am 100% in love with this! I have keratosis pilaris on my face and arms (they are little bumps due to extremely dry skin) and it has almost completely taken the bumps away! Before I get out of the shower I wash my face with cold water and immediately apply the cream before my face drys. It goes on thick and feels oily but once it soaks in my face feels amazing and I like that it has a natural smell rather than a irritating perfume scent. I would definitely NOT recommend it to anyone with oily/normal skin (my mom hates it because it makes her face shiny and sticky) but if you suffer from flaky alligator skin like I do then you're in luck! Perfect for people whose skin suffers in the winter time (I live in NY where it goes from 90 degrees to -20 in a few months).

swear by this cream
I live in Chicago where winters are absolutely brutal... this cream is the only thing I have ever found that is rich enough to fully hydrate and protect my face from the severe cold and wind. It has the unique combination of being thick enough to provide a barrier from the elements with out causing my skin to break out. Love Love Love this cream. Sometimes I wish it wasn't so orange though, as you definitely need to take the time to rub it in throughly.

Love It, Probably not for everyone
I will preface this by saying that my skin is pretty dry so this product is wonderful for me, but it may be too heavy for some.
For those who have mentioned that it's difficult to apply, I thought so too at first. But now I've got the hang of it. First of all, it should always go onto clean skin.
If you shower in the morning, apply the cream as soon as you finish, while the skin is still damp. Otherwise, dampen your fingers before you dip them in the cream. You may need to re-wet them a couple times. You should only need little of the cream at a time. It spreads on in a much thinner layer but still moisturizes well. A little goes a long way.
I do this first thing when I wake up, then I give it a few minutes to sink in while I do other things like get dressed. It is a great makeup base and gives me a little bit of a glow. It really helps smooth out dry patches. Sometimes I also will use it as a night cream.
i personally love the smell, but it definitely does not smell sweet like how you'd think something made from carrots would. It's earthy and soothing.
I'm starting to see the bottom of my jar and will be ordering another soon.

I have dry skin that breaks out when it gets too dry. Alone this product doesn't quite do the trick but no product does without feeling oily. If I layer it with another moisturizer or sunscreen it does the job. I love the smell and it feel great on my skin.
