Fleurs D’ Afrique – Intensive Recovery Cream by African Botanics

The Intensive Recovery cream is designed to hydrate, firm and reinforce the skin structure. The main ingredients are:

  1. Ceramides to repair your skin barrier.
  2. CellDetox to fight dull complexion by facilitating the cells waste-disposal-system.
  3. The anti-aging matrix potent with firming Oligosaccharides.
  4. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Iโ€™ve been using this cream for about 6 months now (and the 50ml jar is still 1/3 full). To be honest the scent is not my favorite, I remember their Infinite Resurfacing mask had the same scent, but the good thing is that it does not linger! 

The moisturizer has a light lotiony-creamy texture, absorbs fast, and gives a velvety finish. The first few times I layered this cream on a hydrating serum, it worked fine but since my skin is dry at the moment it was not enough, so I checked their website; for intense hydration it was suggested to apply a few drops of oil (African Botanic’s Neroli infused Marula oil) before applying this creamโ€ฆ and just like that the cream went from Okโ€ฆ to aaamazing! (always read the instructions). A little goes a long way, it does not pill, wears well under makeup, and did not clog pores (contains Shea butter).

Overall, this is a great moisturizer which can help a lot if you have dehydrated dull skin or a damaged skin barrier caused by over-exfoliation, eczema, sun damage or Accutane.
