It takes very little Sampsons moisturizer to have a beneficial effect on your skin, and in the beginning it is almost impossible to apply too lightly. We do use beeswax instead of a harsh chemical emulsifier (that's how we stop the lighter oils from separating from the heavier butters), but if it feels waxy, you've used too much. And if you have a sense that it's too oily, you've applied Sampsons far, far too heavily. In short, apply Sampsons as lightly as possible, but too much certainly won't hurt your skin, only your pocketbook.
Here, then, is how to apply the Sampsons family:
Remember the old adage: less is more.
Our customers often use the Sampsons moisturizers as a complete-body moisturizer after bathing.
The only difference between applying Sampons to your face and to your body is that most of our customers like their bodies to be still more moist, once again, to facilitate spreading.
If you wish, you may cover the rest of the body more heavily than your face. It won't do much better than a light coat, but we will appreciate the additional business.
In a few days, you'll know the right amount for you and how quickly your skin absorbs it. If you feel you could benefit from more Sampsons, use it more frequently, don't put it on heavier.
