This is a rich moisturizer designed to nourish, brighten, and rejuvenate the skin. The main ingredients are:
+ Beta Glucan: an antioxidant which has moisturizing, and anti-inflammatory properties and is great for improving the look of redness and other signs of sensitive skin. Despite its large molecular size it has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulates collagen production.
+ Retinyl Palmitate: A very weak, gentle and stable form of retinoids. Has skin restorative properties.
+ Panthenol (Vitamin B5): it prevents moisture loss and promotes the skin tissue repair.
+ Vitamin E: an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals and replenishes skin lipids.
+ Ascorbyl palmitate: Stable form of vitamin C; an antioxidant effective at reducing environmental damage.
+ Caprylic triglyceride: Derived from coconut oil and glycerin, a great emollient and skin-replenishing ingredient.
In addition, this formula contain Citrus oils to brighten the skin; Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado & Camellia Oil to repair and strengthen the skin barrier and Chamomilla extract, Chamomile & Geranium oil which do have soothing properties.
I have been using this moisturizer more than a month following an essence and tretinoin, it has a subtle scent to it and you have to follow the instructions carefully when applying; It looks very thick however the texture will change from being creamy to serum-like within a few minutes of massaging into the skin. A pea size amount is enough for my combo acne prone skin, if you apply more than needed it might pill, it did not break me out or cause any irritation thanks to all the anti-inflammatory ingredients (people with Rosacea could benefit from this cream). It wears perfectly under makeup and leaves your skin hydrated and plump all day.
In summary, people with different skin needs could benefit from this moisturizer; If you have dry or mature skin this moisturizer is perfect for you to combat flakiness, you can even use it as a face mask once a week. People with combination and oily skin can use it during the winter months (use sparingly) and the anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients in the formulation makes it suitable for sensitive skin. It is also a great choice to counteract the dryness caused by anti-acne treatments and retinoids.
