"Organic Beauty by Nature

The origins of beauty are hidden from the eye and the most powerful ingredients which are the base of GRATiAE beauty products erupt from underneath the ground. The small mineral-rich thermal spring situated near the Sea of Galilee was discovered centuries ago by the Roman emperor Hadrian who also gave it its name - GRATiAE (grace) after the Three Grace, goddesses of charm, beauty, and fertility in the Roman Mythology.

Thoughts: When it comes to moisturizers, I'm always in a lookout. So when I received this product, I was excited.
Here's a closer look at the packaging. It's sturdy, heavy, and extremely well-made.
I took this from their website. This is a better view than what I have.
Here's how it looks inside.
Here's how the product looks on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a strong scent. It actually took me weeks to figure out the smell. It reminds me of butterscotch. I know that's a strange scent, but that's what came to mind. Secondly, the consistency of the product is pretty thin. This is great for all skin types even dry skin individuals. I thought I might have an issue with this product. My skin tend to only love thick consistency products that layers onto my skin. I didn't have any issue with this moisturizer and it's extremely hydrating. It's also doesn't feel greasy and it melts into your skin. Lastly, this lasted all day without re-hydrating my skin. That's a huge plus if I could go all day long without any worries.

* Well-made, sturdy packaging.
* Smells like butterscotch.
* Thin consistency.
* Good for all skin types.
* Melts into your skin.
* Light weight.
* Not greasy.
* Hydrating.
* Cruelty-free.

* Hard to find in stores.
* Can get expensive.

Would repurchase: Yes, but it can be pricey.
