Question
Is the consistency of this product supposed to be like a cream? My jar is more "paste like" than creamy.

When I first opened the jar it was more like a paste. It's more of a cream now. I love the way it applies - very smooth and it takes very little.

Yes, it is paste-like, but I don't mind it. In fact, I welcome it. I use this for my winter cream. It has the extra greasiness that I need for winter winds and dry radiator heat from my NYC apartment. It has also diminished dry patches that I get around my nose and chin, and the overall tightness that I get from having dry skin. Use a small amount. I put it on my fingertips and pat firmly into my skin, using the heat of my fingertips to thin out and spread the "paste."

I would say that it is more concentrated than a light, fast-absorbing cream. So, I can see why you'd think it's more "paste like" than creamy. I use very little of the product and more or less "dab" it on with quick repeated taps under and around my eyes.

The smell of this product is very mild. I just went in to check because it doesn't irritate my eyes at all. That is my biggest plus because I've used other very expensive eye creams that burn my eyes all day.

answer 3
There is a faint honey/beeswax smell if you sniff the jar, but I never smell anything when it's on and there aren't really any fragrance ingredients in it; however, mine is probably at least a year old. Looking at the ingredients now though, it looks like there are some chemical preservatives and petroleum derived ingredients in there that were not a part of the product when I bought mine. It's a shame that they added that stuff, because I love mine (use once or twice daily) but may not repurchase when I finally run out because of the added chemicals.

There is a smell but it's very faint. I don't like the smell but since it is faint, I don't mind it. I have very allergy prone skin but my best friend is even more allergic and sensitive than me. She often gets that stinging/burning sensation from products with a lot of harsh ingredients & perfumes. She, however, did not get this reaction from Creme Ancienne. She found that the product agreed with and improved her skin.

Question
Has anyone who uses Accutane tried this?
I am getting ready to start Accutane, and I am looking for a super-hydrating eye cream to preempt the awful dryness that I think will be coming. I am wondering if anyone who has used this also is an Accutane user.
