I'm often asked to choose what my favorite product is - and while it's hard to pick from your children, Donkey Cream is always in my regimen, no matter what time of year. Not least because of its lovely soft creamy #texture like you see here.
I use Donkey Cream for my dry, sensitive and aging skin to rehydrate and give me as much taut bounciness as possible. Donkey Cream is made with a base of Donkey Milk, which other than been anti-aging, also seems to do generally a great job with healing acne, and shea butter, which does the hydration bit. Instead of using a silicone, I put fermented bamboo water in the cream to increase slip. Bamboo also helps deeply hydrate and aids discoloration.
Donkey Cream is 47% Donkey Milk, a cult Korean beauty ingredient, as it contains more than 40% of the necessary amino acids for skin health, and for the production of collagen, elastin and keratin. Additionally, it is high in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, D & E and C, which may give it quick healing, anti wrinkles, firming and skin regenerating properties.

Instructions: Apply as final moisturizing layer. May add a sleeping pack on top if desired.
Amount to use: depends on your skin type and conditions. If oily/combo, a dab will be enough for your whole face. If you're drier, try a half pea size and go up if necessary.

This is the perfect cream to wear at night. My skin feels so hydrated without feeling greasy or heavy.
I use this every day. I had skin that was in the "always dry" category, no matter what I tried. Not flaky, just thirsty. This cream leaves my skin bouncy and moisturized, and I think it has improved the health of my skin. My skin can be reactive, but I also find this is very soothing.
This goes on silky smooth and is very hydrating. I find it to be a little to much for morning use, but love it for bedtime. A little goes a long way!

I bought a sample of the donkey cream and knew after two or three uses that I'd come back for the full size. This is a beautiful, gentle, deeply moisturizing cream that I seriously look forward to using every night. (I mix my prescription tretinoin into it every other night and that also works well.) I also don't plan on buying eye cream again anytime soon because this is gentle and moisturizing enough for use around my eyes, which can sometimes be sensitive. Great texture, lovely results, and a very nice scent.
This is a perfect cream for colder seasons and works great as a night cream. I find it sometimes a bit too heavy to wear during the day and definitely too heavy to wear during the day in summer (and I have dry skin). However, it does not leave oily residue and absorbs well, so for those with very dry skin probably would be good for daytime too. I have absolutely no complaints regarding it as a product, but I do think it is slightly too pricey for what it does, hence 4 stars.
