This really is an amazing cream for irritated or dry skin. It is the only product I can use when my skin is extra sensitive due to bad reactions from skincare products or the drying effects of winter. It is a rich, thick balm which is quite heavy and occlusive, but this is exactly what skin needs for healing and protection. I would never be without a tube of this.

I recently had a terrible bout of contact dermatitis and to recover, I just used this cream and nothing else (not even makeup) on my face and body for a week. I could see small results overnight, and after about 3 or 4 days the rash had almost completely gone. By the end of the week, my skin looked clear, smooth and well hydrated. This stuff is like a detox for the skin seriously. It makes …Read more

Skincare - Simple - Water Boost Micellar Cleansing Facial Gel Wash

I decided to give this a try after it was mentioned by a dermatologist on youtube. Firstly, I really love the texture, it feels very refreshing and pleasant to use. It does lather up slightly (which I prefer as I don't believe non-foaming products clean very well) and after rinsing it left my dry skin feeling soft and clean. I use this in the morning and as a second cleanse after removing …Read more

This is a great cream for very dry skin. It doesn't have any bells and whistles as far as anti-aging ingredients go, but it works extremely well as a basic intense moisturiser. It is a quite heavy and greasy, so I tend to use it as a night cream when my skin needs that extra moisture. As it is quite thick, the way I use it is I press it all over my face and after a couple of minutes it …Read more

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Liquid Facial Soap - Mild

This is the only cleanser that actually makes my face feel completely clean. I have dry sensitive skin, and I have tried many cleansers trying to avoid products with the foaming ingredient SLS. In my experience, any cleanser without a foaming element is pretty useless at cleaning skin thoroughly. I don't expect a cleanser alone to remove all traces of makeup, and I think you would be hard …Read more

This cream is a must for anyone with severely dehydrated skin. I use this and retinol separately on alternative nights and this is the only product that combats the side effects of retinol effectively (dryness and redness). It does an oustanding job of moisturising, my skin has never looked so good. In fact it is so moisturising, I think it would be too much for normal or oily skin types, but …Read more

I seem to be in a minority here but I didn't like this cream at all. It had a really nice texture but rather than sinking in when I applied it, it just dried matt on the surface almost like a face mask and felt quite uncomfortable. I decided to persevere with it as it does have an impressive list of ingredients. However, it had very little hydrating effect and showed no benefit to my dry …Read more

Cleansers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

This review is for use on your skin, and it's a big NO from me! I was trying to make the move to more natural skincare products and after reading a good review about the coconut oil cleansing method, I decided to try it for myself. I simply applied the oil to my face and then wiped it off with a hot wash cloth. It does get full marks for removing makeup and left my skin lightly …Read more

I have used glycolic products before but this one blows them all away. My skin type is dry and easily irritated but this doesn't cause any bad reactions. I use it at night twice a week and I cant believe how much better my skin is looking (and younger!) Not only does it improve the texture of the skin, it actually looks firmer too, something I haven't experienced with other similar …Read more

May/16/2017

This is a good foundation for those with sensitive and/or dry skin who may need a bit more coverage without looking cakey. It is buildable so you can apply more to those areas that need it. I tend to get red blotchy skin and this covers it well without causing further irriitation. It is also moisturising and contains SPF. A little bit goes a long way so although quite pricey compared to other …Read more
