Texture & application
Perfect for the summer season. This is not a suncare product. During intense or prolonged exposure, apply a sun protection product, generously and frequently reapply.
Apply to whole face morning after cleansing skin with EFFACLAR Foaming gel. Avoid the eye contour. Take a small amount of cream, the equivalent of the pulp at the tip of the finger. Heat the cream between your fingers to facilitate its penetration without overemphasizing the face. Then, with the hands placed on each side of the face, gently massage your forehead, making light movements from the inside to the outside of the face. Do the same on the middle area, always from the nose to the cheeks. Apply with finger pulp to avoid the temptation to crush pimples.
