My experience with the product:

Packaging: iUNIK Centella Calming Gel-cream comes in a tube packaging with a flip clap. The packaging is nice and sturdy and is travel-friendly. 

Colour and texture: The gel-cream is light cream and looks translucent. The texture is somewhere between gel and cream. It has a lightweight texture but is moisturizing on the skin.

Fragrance: It has a mild and soothing fragrance that fades away after application. The fragrance is definitely not bothersome. 

Who is this for?
  If you want to lower your skin temperature, calm your sensitive skin, and if you are looking for a light and fresh cream. Suits all skin types, especially people with sensitive skin or troubled skin. not really suitable for dry skin.

First impression: I love the gel-cream texture and the mild fragrance. Felt cooling and nice on the skin on the first use. Didn't cause any kind of irritation or breakouts. 

How long I have been using it? I have been using it for two weeks now. I use it as a daytime moisturizer. And it works great that way.

How I like to use it? I like to use it as the 4th step of my skincare routine, that is after cleansing, toning and using a serum, I use this cream as a moisturizer. 

Effects on my skin: My skin loves the Centella calming gel cream especially when my skin is irritated. It does an amazing job of calming and soothing irritated skin. I also love to go with this moisturizer after chemical exfoliation to prevent any skin irritation, because my skin will be sensitive post chemical exfoliation. This is also a great option to heal irritated skin barrier. I apply a generous amount of this cream on red patches that happen as a result of the damaged skin barrier. It helps calm the red patches in 5-10 minutes. This is a great moisturizer for oily, sensitive skin for summers when you need something soothing, hydrating, and lightweight. Might not be moisturizing enough for the winters, but if you have very oily skin, this one should be enough. 

Will I repurchase it?
  Definitely, this is something I need to have with me always as I have sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin. 
Do I recommend it?  I highly recommend it for people with irritated, sensitive, oily, and acne-prone skin.
