Is it a daycream or a highlighter? That depends on your skins needs. I found that it works best as a highlighter – rather than an allover hydrating treatment. Otherwise use it in combination with a serum, for more comfort and hydration, and still have that ‘light’ feeling and have that illuminated glow.
