GLYCEL Hydro Firm Moisturizing Cream Review

Look what arrived on my doorstep the other day:

It's the most beautiful candle stand I"ve seen, together with a delightful moisturizer. Of course the two are linked to the same theme: birds. And birds' nest.
Hydro Firm Moisturizing Cream* is the latest innovation by the brand. Asians are quite obsessed with Birds' Nest (they are indeed a better name to refer to swallows made by certain birds which has an added-value to health and beauty). Birds' Swallows (also known as Birds' Nest) are much favored, sought after by queens and princesses in history.

Taken inspiration from the natural resource found from birds, the new moisturizer targets at dry and loose/ saggy skin. The formula has birds nest extracts (of course), Epidermal Growth Factor, Kigelia Africana Extract, Primrose Oil, Cucumber Seed Extract, Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid, Papaya Enzyme, Vitamin C. It aims to stimulate cell regeneration, enhance metabolism and achieving firm and hydrated skin.

With a hybrid of skin-friendly components infused in one jar, the Hydro Firm Moisturizing Cream's concept resembles Birds' Swallows/Birds' Nest to enhance health by boosting immunity - to boost skin's vitality and strengthen its growth / cell re-generation by offering rich doses of nutrients.

The product is sealed like a jar of milk pudding. All jar packaging products from the brand is sealed for hygiene reasons. I've put this to test for three weeks. I've noticed skin has become more supple and plump than usual, a sign of hydration. I also like how fast the skin absorbed the cream. The cream texture is quite watery, almost like thin yoghurt. It is lightly scented with cucumber and I love the scent. Even if it's touted as a Moisturizing Cream with firming/lifting properties, its texture is not thick at all. I'm using it on my neck as well due to its non-greasy texture. 

I see myself reaching for this moisturizer in fall season just before the coldest winter arrives. I imagine you'd need something more thick by then. But the cream is perfect for the transition from summer to winter.
