I received in this in my birchbox awhile back. At first I wasn't sure I liked it because it didn't seem to do much. However, after using it for awhile it has become one of my favorites. I'm in the 4 month mark of using it and I hate the idea of having to throw it away since it's out of stock at the moment and I can't get more! Anyway, the formula was slightly drier, which I liked because it doesn't leave me with raccoon eyes after I work out, or at the end of a long day. Mine never flaked, either...totally love this!
