A Cream You Can Trust
Us millennial love to be frivolous with our skincare, as soon as new cream comes along with prettier packaging then that’s us gone! That’s why they just keep making it. Who knew we needed so much stuff to slap on our faces, don’t get me wrong…I love it. We’re all know for it, that’s just the way we are these days.
However, I’m sure we all have our core favourites. The items we always have extras of. Stocked up in the back of or cabinets, just incase.
For me it’s Kiehls’ Ultra Facial Cream. One of the first items I tried from the brand about 9 years ago! Jesus Christ 9 years, gulp.
This cream is the holy grail of creams, it may not be all fancy pants and sexy in appearance. But it doesn’t need to be, because it’s such a fucking fab moisturiser. No, seriously.
Dry skin? Amazing for you. Oily skin? It’s your pal. Prone to break-outs? No worries. Male/Female/Other? Ney bosh pet.
The lightweight formulation is light enough to not be greasy, but creamy enough to feel nourishing and UBER hydrating.
Personally I use this predominantly as a ‘night-time’ cream as it just that extra but luxurious (add a couple drops of midnight-oil and you’ll be a sexy beast by the morning).
- Antarcticine (Glacial Glycoprotein Extract): Helps protect the sin acting as a barrier whilst also hydrating and plumping the skin. Works perfectly in all weather conditions.
- Imperata Cylindrica (Desert Plant Extract): This plant lives in super dry conditions such as deserts and survives because the roots contain high concentrations of potassium enabling for long-lasting hydration. Imperata Cylindrica works in the same sort of way in this cream, helping to retain the moisture we need in out skin.
- Squalane (fun name I know): A lipid very similar to the skins natural structure, found in lots of various skincare products because of its ability to moisturise with almost instant absorption.
