The packaging is great as far as I'm concerned; a plastic bottle which is perfect for travelling with and comes equipped with a pump for easy, hygienic access to the product. I find that one pump is the perfect amount for my whole face; the gel spreads nicely, feels lovely and light on the skin, and is absorbed quickly without feeling sticky or greasy in the slightest. The gel has a very light scent to it which is completely inoffensive and impossible to detect once it's on your face - so far, so good! The next morning, my skin doesn't feel dry or tight as it sometimes can of a morning, and I also find my forehead isn't quite its usual oil slick. Don't get me wrong, there is still a definite shine to my skin, but it's nowhere near the usual degree. For me, that pretty much makes this product a winner; however, looking on The Body Shop's website, a lot of the reviews suggest that this hasn't worked at all for a lot of people, with many reviews claiming their skin was left feeling dry and yet still just as oily. This hasn't been my experience (indeed, I've had the total opposite experience!) but it's something to bear in mind if you're considering buying this product. As always, skincare is very personal and even within similar skin-types, what works for one person isn't guaranteed to work for the next!
