I had the opportunity to try out the Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence Aqua Mineral Solution. The packaging is nice and sleek looking. At first I thought the lid was metal but it just looks metal. The entire packaging is plastic. I don’t necessarily like the way that you have to squeeze the contents out, I’d prefer a pump. The product had more of an oily consistency as opposed to a creamy consistency. That’s not a bad thing in my opinion. It seemed to absorb into my skin really quickly and easily and my skin felt nice and moisturized. It has kind of a men’s cologne sort of scent to it to me and I didn’t like that. The scent did go away after I applied the product to my face though. I may end up giving this product to my boyfriend just because of the scent. I like the fact that it has SPF 50 in it, that’s really convenient. The directions weren’t in English. I tried to find them online but gave up after a short amount of time. I went on the product website but it wouldn’t translate what I needed it to into English. I know that the product is for your face so I just applied it to my face and neck like I would have done with a normal moisturizer. Wasn’t too big of a deal. If it would have been a different kind of product that required more instruction then I think it would have been a bigger deal to be able to find the directions. Overall this is not a bad product. I received this product free for testing and review purposes and all opinions are my own.
