I was hesitant to try this product after reading so many negative reviews saying how dry these creams can be but sometimes, I feel like people don't take climate into consideration. I have used this palette in both my cold as anything home town of Hobart, Tasmania - and I have also used this product in the middle of the Pacific where it's 30 degrees every day. Obviously, there is going to be a change in texture depending on where you live! When it's warmer, I've never used a more beautiful, glowy, healthy looking, and blendable bronzer. However, when it's colder yes, it does look a little drier and needs a bit more effort when blending but that doesn't take away anything from this product other then your time.
