The cream inside the pot is like a clearish-pink gel that cools your face. I just run my index finger along the top and that is enough to cover my entire face. This product is one where a little goes a long way.
After a day of using this product along with my daily makeup my face stays moisturized all day long. It is such an amazing product and changed my skin! I bought mine from Walgreens for around $8 and it has lasted me from November until today with daily use (thankfully I bought another a week ago) so the 1.7FL OZ jar lasts about 9 months! Another wonderful attribute! Although I just found it online at Walmart for $6.97 so I would recommend buying it there if you can. Overall, this product is amazing and I will continue to repurchase it!
