The cream comes in a long, purple coloured, sturdy bottle. The bottle is simple; looks fine, but at the price, I wished it looked a little luxurious. It has a steel finish dispenser on top and with one pump, it dispenses just a pea-sized amount, which in enough for my face.

My Take on Michael Todd Balancing Gel Cream:

I got to try a small sample bottle of this cream around 5-6 months back. Within 1 week of usage, I saw an incredible difference in my skin. So, I decided to get a full bottle, as I rarely come across skin care products that work on me or impress me. I asked my cousin returning from U.S. to get me this, but one can also shop this from their official website and the best part is that they provide free worldwide shipping.:yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

The cream is gel type and I only take a pea-sized amount for my full face. It is very lightweight and seeps into my skin in no time. On immediate application, I notice how it softens and refreshes my skin without any trace of greasiness. Even after 4-5 hours of application, I notice that I do not get excessive oil on my face. It has a mild pleasant fragrance which I like.

I have been using this cream for past 2 months and see that my facial skin has become a LOT better than before. I also, see a reduction in my pore size and I believe it has to be, all because of this crème as I haven’t changed any other product in my skin care regime. This gel cream has been an absolute treat for my otherwise oily/acne-prone skin and I am in no mood to shift to any other brand/type now. The only downside is the high price, but I guess this one bottle will last me for another 2 months, so overall, I am satisfied.
