It's like a dry oil (feels like an oil but without the greasiness) and has no smell which is a plus for me! Very calming and soothing, reduces inflamation on my acne/sensitive skin. I use it as my last serum before moisturiser and feels very nourising. I deducted one star only because it takes a little longer to sink in which makes my makeup application a bit more difficult. Definitely recommend for sensitive skin, as it hasn't caused any irritation.
