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.

Texture is great, but unlike the other comments, the smell is way too strong for me. Gives me a headache.

makes skin feel soft and has a lovely smell.

I too received this day cream as a sample gift after my first order, and the smell of it immediately enchanted me. A lot of botanical based products merely suggest a fragrance, but not The Victorian Garden. My ultra sensitive skin approves.

I got this as a sample and it does its job, but it hasn't done anything spectacular.
It replenishes dry skin, but I can't see results that couldn't be achieved by a cheaper alternative.

Really great, gentle but moisturising.

I've been using this face cream daily for ages now, and it's perfect for my super sensitive skin. The scent is really subtle, which is also great.
15/10/2018, By Rehal
This smells really good and nourishes my skin.
11/07/2018, By Carmen
beautiful product. Cleanse my face so well, smells amazing and i am so happy to know i'm using a product that is filled with botanicals and is good for me and the environment. Would love to know if there is facial soap bar like this?
20/04/2018, By Fatima
I recieved a tub as a free sample and it gave me a chance to really test it properly over a few days instead of single use sample sachets.
It worked well and my skin adapted to it as I cannot use anything easily on my face. So yes its an excellent product.
21/02/2018, By Sophie
light, non-greasy, smells wonderful and moisturises the whole day - this is def my go-to face cream
02/01/2018, By Tracey Joy
Perfect if you only need a light moisturiser. Smells "clean"
15/11/2017, By Genna
A gentle and effective moisturizer, also very suitable for sensitive skin
25/10/2017, By Tam
It feels silky on my skin. Skin looks and feels hydrated. Would be great if it contained an spf though.
14/09/2017, By Taryn
My skin reacts to most face creams and I normally don't leave the house without foundation in order to mask the redness/irritation. I have only been using this cream for about 10 days but already notice the difference. My skin looks and feels different, no more redness and I have even been going to work for the first time since school-days without foundation! Will definitely be trying out more products in this range soon.
31/07/2017, By Claire B
It really did what it said. My husband has dry and problematic skin and it has been the best moisturizer he's used to date. It smells great too.

I bought this as a face cream for my seven year old daughter. Glides on easily, non-greasy and suitable for sensitive skin.
24/05/2017, By Candice
I prefer light day creams as I hate feeling sticky or that the cream is 'melting off' when I sweat in summer. But I have fairly dry skin, so it's always tricky to find the balance between a light enough cream that doesn't feel sticky, and one that moisturises well enough.
This cream is perfectly in the middle for me!
I can mix it with a bit of base/foundation and/or my SPF day cream and it still doesn't feel too thick.
22/12/2016, By Melanie
Makes my face feel a bit sticky when I put it on and smells a bit herbal, but to my surprise my face did not start to feel dry during the day. So it did its job.
22/09/2016, By Lerato
Although this is touted for sensitive skin, it dried out my combination, dry, sensitive and dehydrated skin, which led to itching.
Im working on getting my skin hydrated, so I will not be using this until then. It smells lovely :)

I have been using the English Lavender Cucumber day cream for two weeks now and I am loving it! It is great for sensitive skin and is light and fluffy but still nourishes my skin. I have no irritation and it does not make your skin oily. I only wish that the day cream had an SPF rating. Otherwise I am loving the sensitive range.
22/07/2016, By Ray
This cream has a very pleasant lavender fragrance that does not linger unnecessarily on ones skin. It works well for dry, sensitive skin; it absorbs and moisturizes, and doesn make skin oily.
11/02/2016, By shayne
I have very sensitive combination skin and bought this purely on the reviews. I am so glad I did. It soaks into my skin immediatly and by the end of the day I dont have the oily and dry patches I used to have before I began using it. My skin is soft and even and subtle aqnd is really looking good. The best part is you only need a little so it lasts. I highly recommend this product.
08/09/2015, By Shameema
I suffer from eczema and its always a struggle to find skincare products that don irritate. This face cream is a dream and the perfect base for makeup.
18/06/2015, By Germaine
This is a lovely product, which does not make my skin itchy, but leaves it feeling fresh and moisturised. The tub also lasts a long time, so it is a great buy!
03/06/2015, By Gail
I have a very sensitive skin which tends to become very oily. This cream soaks into your skin immediately, giving it a lovely moisturized feel, and I don end up with an oily shine at the end of the day. My skin feels soft, moisturized and oil-free, I love it and it has a very pleasant and refreshing fragrance. Will definitely be purchasing more of this product.
07/05/2015, By Gillian
I have been using this Day Cream for just over a week and it beats any other cream i have tried. Its wonderful and light and soothes my dry sensitive skin! I love this product and would highly recommend it to anyone!
13/04/2015, By Lindi
Im currently on Roaccutane and this helps with the dryness without leaving my skin oily throughout the day, Love it!
25/03/2015, By Glynnis
I find that my skin radiates and firms up almost immediately – I have definitely seen a difference between these products and commercial products. Even when I go for facials I don’t have any white heads while using your products as I get them with commercial products – it is truly an amazing product and I hope to continue using it as long as I can.
09/03/2015, By Esme
This product is really gentle and smells lovely. My skin is quite sensitive, but this cream did nothing to aggravate it. It absorbs quickly and is not greasy at all. My skin also tends to be dry, but this cream is perfect to use in a humid climate or during summer, when the air is not so dry.
07/03/2015, By Pamela
Could you advise the source of your Palm Oil used in this product. I really want to use organic products, but afraid of contributing to the harm created in the environment with the palm-oil saga.
02/02/2015, By Jessica
I received a sample of this in my last order. I tend to be wary of trying different day creams and balms etc, as they tend to be either too watery or too thick for my skin type. This one was a pleasant surprise.

The scent is a bit strong, compared to what I am used to, and it felt a little sticky as well, compared to what I am used to (the one I am currently using is a little more creamy).

But wow is this stuff good. it goes on so smoothly and my skin just drinks it up. And a little goes a LONG way.

I will definitely consider buying this once my sample runs out.

I have one of those ricky skins thats dry and irritated one day then greasy the next. Trying to find a moisturiser has being a constant battle! I am happy to say that this one is a winner, the cream is light and soaks in very quickly. My face feels alanced. I would definitely recommend!
06/11/2014, By Elaine
Im using day cream for the first time in my entire life! Its a very light cream, and it absorbs very easily. I also find that its better to apply the cream immediately after cleansing, while the skin is slightly damp. And a little bit goes a long way.
04/11/2014, By Mary-Anne
This day cream is proving perfect for Durban humidity. It doesn cause flare-ups, smells great and adds just the right amount of moisture to my skin. By the end of the day, my skin doesn feel oily and grimy as so often happens in our humid climate.
15/10/2014, By Kate
I absolutely love this product- a little goes a long way, it smells gorgeous and my sensitive skin loves it!
07/10/2014, By Samantha
This moisturiser is lovely and gentle and applies easily. It has a soft mild scent and works well with my dry sensitive skin. I find it isn as rich as my current Environ moisturiser so I might continue trying out a few brands before changing over completely although I would definitely be happy to buy this one again.
11/12/2013, By Audrey
I absolutely LOVE this day dream - its rich and moisturizes but not oily and it work wonders for my sensitive skin. Its makes my skin soft and smooth and I love the delicate smell. (My cream was not gritty at all).
13/11/2011, By Heather
Great product - moisturises beautifully and doesn't irritate my very sensitive skin. Only complaint is that the consistency is a little gritty.
15/09/2011, By Jenni
Very nice cream - smells great, light and not greasy and doesn't irritate my skin, which tends to flare up quickly. Lately I've been getting skin breakouts & find that this cream soothes it and helps the pimple sget better quicker. I didn't find it gritty.
