A note from our supplier: Pentylene Glycol has a zero listed hazard rating in Cosmetic Data Base and there are 23 published articles which provide interesting data and note studies done back in the 1970’s – in all of these, there was only one case listed of Dermatitis in Belgium and two cases in Cleveland, Ohio, in which the use of a topical cream containing Pentylene Glycol was suspected (not determined) to be the cause of the Dermatitis. (Skin Deep Data Base) rates Pentylene Glycol as zero hazard. On  it is listed as having no health concerns and is not on their list of hazardous ingredients. We use Pentylene Glycol only in our creams and lotions, which contain a higher water content and therefore need a proven strong preservative, and we consider it to be the safest and healthiest preservative currently available in the absence of a reliable natural preservative.

Lovely feel when applied to the skin

This product has a fresh smell, may take some getting used to but it's not overpowering and it is growing on me. Works beautifully, my skin is soft and hydrated.

This is a wonderful face cream. I highly recommend it: great texture and smell.
HOWEVER: I really don't like the new tubs: they feel overly plasticky and pretentious which doesn't suit the product. The old this ir tubes were much nicer.

This cream is moisturising without being either too greasy or too mattifying. Just right. Good value in the bundle - unfortunately regularly out of stock which is frustrating!
16/05/2019, By Sindy
The tub has changed but the contents still just as amazing. It leaves my face matte the whole day and is nourishing. After applying my face feels right but not in a negative way.
Beautiful cream

I find that if I use this on its own, I don't enjoy the somewhat tight feeling it leaves. It could also just be that I'm used to chemical products and this is my first natural moisturizer. But I do mix a tiny bit of an olive oil balm with it in the mornings, and am really loving the 2 together. It spreads really well so I'm sure this little jar will last a long time!

I thought I would give this day cream a try, and was not disappointed. Love the fragrance and my skin is looking supple. A bonus is that a little goes a long way.
31/10/2018, By Suné
I received this as a sample and I LOVE it! My skin feels so soft and I love the unique smell.
09/10/2018, By Tamg
It is a gentle product. I like the smooth way it goes on my skin and soaks in beautifully. It has an interesting smell. It’s quite nice but does take a little getting used to.
08/02/2018, By Delano
Even though this is an awesome product and I cannot fault it, I feel that the product advertised is not the product I received. I did my research, read all the reviews, selected the item on display (tub of cream) yet got a tube of cream. If I know this would be the case I would have bought the day/night deal.

I bought this item specifically because of the tub. Not the end of the world though. I do however recommend the listing be update as most people prefer tubs instead of tubes.

I've been using this for a few years now and have found that my skin is smooth and clearer than before. It keeps it moist all year through. Highly recommended.
03/10/2016, By Heidi
This cream is a nice cream, moisture yes but it doesn absorb easily. Unfortunately I have to say I prefer Simply Bee Anti-Age!!!
19/09/2016, By Nancy
I happily worked my way through the VG range and each cream had something to recommend it, but I have settled on this one now. It is non-greasy and rapidly absorbed, the vanilla smell is gorgeous, but best of all it provides a noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture, helping to reduce redness and the appearance of blemishes. Love it!

This product is worth every cent.
Thanks faithful to Ntature
12/05/2016, By Ninette
Absolutely love this cream, especially how my skin just soaks it up and feels so supple afterwards. Great smell and beautiful texture. One of my absolute favourites.
06/04/2016, By Bonnie
I love the subtle fragrance, my skin is looking great and a little goes a long way.
27/01/2016, By Natasha
Ive been using this product night and day for a few months now and I absolutely love it! Ive used other face creams by Victorian Garden but this one works best for my skin type. I love the scent and my skin feels so well hydrated without feeling oily afterwards. It was out of stock from VG for a while last year which I found disappointing, but hopefully they will be well stocked this year. I was getting the product from a different supplier, so I can comment on Faithful to Natures availability

I was using another aloe moisturizer (from this site) before this one, then I decided to change and try something else. After using it once I haven looked back. I love its strange smell and how it feels on my skin. It has a matte finish and hydrates my skin well!
11/12/2015, By Cassandra
I love the coolness of the aloe on my skin and the propolis gives a gentle glow. However, its a little greasy to use with a sunscreen so I alternate with a propolis serum. The subtle scent is lovely.
03/10/2015, By Elizabeth
I am blown away by the Victorian Garden products, and this cream is no different! A soft, luxurious and calming balm soothing my super-sensitive skin.
28/08/2015, By Tanja
This product smells divine and love the consistency of the cream. Lovely product.
28/02/2015, By Suzanne
goeie VG produk. Definitef
produk vir droer veltipes, so ek gebruik dit maar spaarsamig. Ek stem saam met Joanne - selfs vir die met droeër veltipes - gebruik kleiner hoeveelhede op
slag. Pasop - hierdie room is gevoelig vir temperatuur, so onthou om die room in
koel plek te bêre. (In my opinie - die room ruik nie soos versiersel nie, maar eerder soos varsgebakte kolwyntjies)
18/11/2014, By Joanne
I love this cream - not oily and works is absorbed quickly. Leaves my face feeling soft and smooth. Its also well worth the money as I have found it lasts twice as long as the same size of commercially branded face cream. You really only need a pea size blob.
16/10/2014, By Heather
The picture is deceiving on the website as it comes in a pot, which is actually better. This cream is very moisturising, is quickly absorbed and you can actually feel your skin being nourished as you massage it in.
12/02/2014, By Gillian
This day cream works like a dream, keeps my skin super soft and moisturised and most importantly my skin does not become oily through out the day and the smell of the cream is lovely.
23/10/2011, By Sandra
Since I fell in love with this awesome moisturiser (and the Victorian Garden range), I have had no need to wear base or powder! I use the the cream in combination with the sweet thorn & wild rosemary gel cleanser, the wild chamomile & yarrow scrub and the the rose toner. And it smells amazing!
21/10/2011, By Liesl
I love how nourishing this moisturiser is without being greasy. A little goes a long way and the fragrance is lovely!
03/10/2011, By Gee
This moisturizer is absolutely amazing. Rich and creamy, plus the added bonus that it smells amazing. Leaves your skin feeling fresh, smooth and great, no oily feeling.
30/09/2011, By Su-Ann
Great all-year day cream for my combination skin. I have been through a couple of jars and still very happy. Aloe has never been on the ingredients list on my jars and I just thought it's really strange.
24/08/2011, By Anita
I love this moisturizer. My skin has never felt softer, it has a lovely smell and I use only half the amount I used to use with my old moisturizer. The Victorian Garden range is great!
20/08/2011, By Tanya F
I love this day cream. I have a normal to dry skin and this cream makes my skin glow! It gives enough moistue and hydration without being oily. It also has an amazing tightening feeling.
03/08/2011, By Ruth
Outstanding face moisturizer. My skin is sensitive and I have never had success in finding a face cream that does not cause me to break out. But this cream has worked amazingly for me. A tiny bit goes a long way for my skin. I am very grateful for this product!
16/05/2011, By Tracy
Lovely smell, works well on my combination skin and really good value for money.
04/05/2011, By Deshanta
I love the smell of this cream and its so good for my skin.
11/02/2011, By Marieta
I found that this product is not absorbed easily (especially in this warm weather) and for me it did not provide enough moisture as the day went on. (My skin is Normal to Dry; and a little sensitive). Smells great though!
06/02/2011, By Claire
This stuff is lovely. Even my husband commented on how soft my skin was. TOP MARKS!
