I tried this product (and company) on a complete whim trying to find a replacement for a harder to get and three times as expensive product from Europe. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and have learned I need to use a product at least a week to find out if I will react to it. (I cannot tell you how many products I've purchased only to give away to friends after two tries!) So, I was skeptical going in to this...and after two weeks I can tell you I'm a happy customer! This variety of Azulen cream is thinner than my European variety so I find on dryer days I need to apply twice for that added layer but a little goes a long way so I don't mind. At my current use rate I will need to reorder every two months but that will still save me over $100 a year!
