A Decent Moisturiser
on 6 March 2016
This is a decent moisturiser. I find that it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the night and when I wake up in the morning my skin has a lovely soft and smooth feel to it. It's quite a rich cream and one pump is more than enough for my face and neck areas and I have dry sensitive skin. I like the fact it comes in opaque packaging with a pump to dispense the product. This means that any ingredients sensitive to degrading in the presence of light and air can remain potent and that the last bit of cream you can get out of the container will more or less be just as effective as the first pump of cream. It's also a lot more hygienic in that you don't have to contaminate the entire container of cream when you just want a pea-sized amount.
Apart from moisturising my skin well and keeping it hydrated throughout the night, for me this product doesn't do much else. I haven't noticed any 'anti-ageing' benefits! Maybe this is because it doesn't have as many 'anti-ageing' ingredients as I am used to and would have liked it to contain being an anti-ageing product, but for the price you can't really complain too much on that front. I have a bit of an issue with this product in that after applying it to a freshly cleaned face, it tends to clump and ball up almost and form slightly white patches of dried-out cream that I can just rub off my face. I try to ensure that I don't use too much and rub it in gently but for me personally, it doesn't absorb as well as other moisturisers I have used - some even cheaper than this! It has a clean pleasant scent to it so for those who can't tolerate added fragrances don't purchase this. There may be a fragrance-free version of this product.
I haven't noticed any permanent changes in my skin and have been using this moisturiser for over 3 weeks now. For me, it does nothing more than moisturise my skin. So for me it's a good moisturiser but not a good anti-ageing moisturiser if that helps!
