Let me start off by saying the cream itself is a fine product. However, from my experience, the packaging seems to cause the cream to dry out if you do not transfer it into better air tight containers.
This really baffles me. Apply it in the context of a skin care or food product. When you buy a skin care product, food sauce, jam or peanut butter off the shelf, you believe and trust that the product would be best kept in the same container that you bought it in. Nobody thinks about transferring the product into another container for storage. But this is what actually happens with the Japanese Silicone Cream. When it dries out, you can't use it anymore.
In another occasion, I noticed that even a brand new cream with the lid still sealed had the same issue. The silicone cream in the jar with an unbroken seal has dried out.
In my opinion, there could possibly be something wrong with the design of the lid. I hope the manufacturer is aware of it and improves on the quality of the container.
For those of you who are using this product and do face the same issue, I’d love to hear from you how you store this. Also for some who decides to purchase this cream, it may be best to have back up empty tight lit containers to store it.
Hope that helps!
