Q: This is my first time using this product. The cream is so thick that it doesn't come out of the container without a lot of squeezing and it looks and feels like vaseline. Is this normal?
A: Yes, it looks and feels like Vaseline. It should come out of the tube somewhat thick but not as how you describe. I recommend exchanging, check the expiration date. I bought mine a few weeks back and the expiration date is 2021.submitted byClamshell - 4 years ago
