I think it's a solid 4.5/5
It's non-comedogenic and locks in moisture very well. Calms and even brightens my complexion, evening out the skin tone. A good purchase for anyone from people with dry skin to acne girlies who want to repair their skin barrier.
Only pet peeve is it can't be used as a day moisturizer, since it can peel and if you put a thick layer it's a bit like vaseline but dryer?. But it's fine since it's a "sleeping mask".
The scent is okay, it doesn't contain fragrance so I assume it's from the ingredients, (smells almost a bit lemony? not sure).
Texture: something between a non oily vaseline and a gel moisturiser but richer and more thick.
