My Opinion:
 
Every time I visit Thailand I always drop by Thann to stock up on my Thann Hair Mask with Ceramide Protein and Shiso Extract, and on my last trip to Thailand I've picked this moisturizer as well.
 
I wasn't sure what to expect, but since it has the same scent as the hair mask (something floral and citrusy) that I love I got this to try out.
 
Although this cream smells really fresh, it actually felt kind of heavy on the skin, so I've only been using this at night.

I've tried using this on top of a hydrating serum, and I was a grease ball when I woke up the next morning, so I've totally forgotten about it, until recently when I've started to use BHA and Retin A again, my skin was really dry and flaky. When I layer this on top of the BHA or Retin A, my skin looks amazing when I wake up, it looks smooth and my pores has never look this tiny. I'm not sure if is the BHA or the Retin A or the moisturizer, but this combo seems to agree with my skin and I'm going to stick with it.
