This has the most interesting texture. When pumped out, it is crystal clear and is reminiscent of some sort of slime with its stringy-ness. BUT when applied to the skin, it glides on like silk and feels so smooth. I absolutely love it and have never experienced anything like it. It is very hydrating and plumping to my skin. It does not feel sticky or tacky and layers well with other skincare steps. No pilling. Definitely a winner!
