- Aloe vera (Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder) is known for its hydration, wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties,
- Rose floral water (Rosa Damascena Flower Water) is an anti-inflammatory that can soothe irritated skin
- Glycerin is a humectant, meaning that it attracts water from the surrounding and helps keep that moisture in the skin. It is also naturally found in the skin.
- Alpha bisabolol (Bisabolol) is known to have anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties.
3. Why I chose that product
I bought it on sales when I was randomly shopping one day. It was very cheap and I was already intrigued by the product as it was labeled as new on the market and organic certified (always attracted by new things haha).
4. My thoughts
No fancy packaging but hey, is it the cream or the packaging that is supposed to make good skin?
The cream has a medium texture (not too light nor too thick) but when applied to the face, it is quite rich for my oily skin. FYI, I started using it during winter. It leaves a very thin oily layer that I guess, is supposed to give protection against the external factors.
What I liked: My skin feels softer and plumped right after application. The five different levels (hydration, soothing, protection, tightness prevention and shield) are all checked. Plus, a little goes a long way.
What I didn’t: it is too heavy for my oily skin by itself, so I use it with a light hand or mix it with a watery serum.
Would I repurchase it? I would if I hadn’t so many other creams waiting to be used.
My rate: 4/5, a simple yet effective moisturizing cream.
