Funny story, by the time I got to review the LEEGEEHAAM Vita Propolis Cream it has been reformulated and repackaged. Fun facts don't cease to exist... It took some more time and brand got renamed to the Dr. Ceuracle. Most of the products stayed the same though which is a good thing considering that they are awesome!

LEEGEEHAAM Vita Propolis Cream is the most beautiful product from this brand in my opinion. Together with their propolis ampoule they create a power duo that is yet to be beaten in terms of creating natural glow effect on the skin. Packed with antioxidants, propolis and skin restorative ingredients, this one is my most used item since I got back from my vacation. I use it on my face day and night and it does an amazing job at being super nourishing for the skin on my hands.
Texture of the cream is very whipped and light, I was expecting it to be more oily because of how it looks but no, it is pure perfection. Cream absorbs very well into the skin and locks up the moisture so well. I am astonished. How the heck did I let it sit around in my skin care drawer for so long... FYI the answer is that I had to finish some other creams. I totally regret avoiding this jar for so long. I might have found my holy grail winter moisturizing cream.
Sorry for too much blabbing, back to the review. The buttery slash liquidly cream is very bouncy and melts into the skin within 30 seconds. It has a lingering honey floral scent that is very light and inoffensive to my nose. I love how well this cream sits under my SPF and foundation. It somehow acts as a primer on me making my make-up last longer than it usually does.
The hydrating properties of LEEGEEHAAM Vita Propolis Cream are out of this world. Being back from vacation, shifting climates drastically twice over past month made my skin even more sensitive to the cold air. I turn red when it is windy outside and this cream prevents me from wanting to scrape my skin off my face while being outside. It works like magic giving me that instant glow. I love it! Too bad the jar is only 50ml.Highly recommending it to anyone with sensitive and easily irritated skin. This cream is a beast at taming redness and providing excellent nourishing without it being too much.
