Review: I thought every face cream was the same. I have been bored recently with skin creams. It's something I put on my face and 10 minutes later, I don't feel a difference, as if I never put anything on my face at all. My face doesn't feel moisturized, my skin doesn't feel nourished. I felt like all creams just lacked excitement. I did a chemical peel last week that left my skin craving moisture, peeling, rough and blotchy. Totally to be expected from a chemical peel. I've been applying moisturizer and oils twice a day hoping to bring some life back into my angry epidermis. Foundation on my skin has looked terrible since the peel. If I didn't have anywhere to be, I wouldn't even bother. I know you're thinking "I thought this was review, all she is doing is complaining." You would be right. I've had a rough skin week that has nothing to do with my hormonal cycle.
I was sent this cream expecting to just apply and post on social media. I didn't expect to love it. Opening the tub, you can smell the earthy notes of rosemary. It's subtle but lingers for a little. The tub feels light and the cream looks whipped and buttery. Alas, the cream is dense, not something that is accidentally going to fall out of the tub. I stick my finger in and it feels soft. I apply to my face and neck, you don't need much, the cream spreads easily. This was no ordinary cream. My skin started to feel cooling, I could feel the natural ingredients. I normally avoid touching my face as much as possible to limit contaminating my pores with germs, after 20 minutes, I touch my cheek. My cheek feels cool, fresh, soft but not soft from freshly applied product, from actually being moisturized. My face is soft all over. Normally my cheeks are dry and my nose is oily but this time it feels uniformly soft and hydrated. The light hint of rosemary lingers for about an hour but the hydration lasted till the morning. My rough skin was no longer rough. This is no cheap watery cream, it's legitimately good skin care.
I am going to start putting it on my décolletage to help with sun exposure and hyper pigmentation from all my v neck shirts I wear.
Side Note: I got something around 4 hours of sleeps, maybe. Normally I would wake up with dull tired skin but my skin was supple and hydrated. I was expecting to have to use a full coverage foundation to make up for the hard night. This cream made my skin the perfect base even though I got little sleep.
Packaging: 2oz simple black packaging, professional.
Consistency: It's a dense cream in the tub, I skimmed my finger over the top and it was a soft buttery texture. Very smooth, not sticky, absorbed quickly. Left my skin feeling cool, like I used a cold roller. Scent: No added fragrance. It had an earthy sage scent that was very light and I could hardly tell when it was on my skin.
Repurchase: Yes I would.
Price: $27.95. Not bad considering most decent creams range from $45+.
One week update: I noticed that after I put this cream on, it blurred and mattified my combination skin without feeling dry. I will continue to use this amazing product.
