I like...It's ok...Also is incredibly gentle and non-irritating....I tried this and I no exaggeration I woke up with light little flakes of skin peeling off- because it literally hydrated my skin so much and moisturized so much that it helped speed up the process of dry skin flaking off (from the retinol product) I bought this in the large tub and I couldn't be any happier.
