Color, Texture, Consistency and Scent
Pale green color, light weight, not to thick or sticky, gel cream. It has an airy, bouncy consistency. It has a light, refreshing cucumber scent to it.

Application and Usage Experience
I apply is after my serum, as a moisturizing cream. It spreads easily and stays tacky for a minute or so and then is absorbed completely by the skin. The gel cream literally feels like water on the skin. It  disappears into the skin without leaving any greasy residue. The product has a mattifying effect. There is Hyaluronic Acid in it and it is a well know ingredient for retaining water into the skin, thus keeping it hydrated. The Peptides help minimize the fine lines making the skin look plump, nourished and firm. The calm, cooling and soothing effect on the skin is all thanks to the cucumber in the formula. The star ingredient though is the Celery seed extract and I should be talking about it first, but I couldn't gather much information on the same. It does contains anti oxidants (source) and as per the description on the Volition website, it removes excess oil and helps smooth, blur, and minimize the appearance of pores.

I have dry skin and even though it is a light gel formula, it does not make my skin feel dry, stretched or parched. Some gel creams hydrate the skin but fail to moisturize it. Not the case with this one. It layers well under my sunscreen without balling or pilling. Layering does not feels heavy on the skin. The pores are less visible and the cream does not clog my pores.
As far as makeup goes, I use a tinted moisturizer and cream based products in summer. Did not have any issues with this cream underneath my makeup.


Packaging
The cream is housed in a heavy glass jar, with a screw top cap. It comes in a recyclable packaging. 

Final Verdict
The light weight cream is both moisturizing and nourishing at the same time. It helps smooth the skin by making it appear plump, hydrated and healthy. The non greasy cream layers well under the sunscreen and never feels heavy, thus making it a wonderful day cream.
