I first spotted this cream on Red magazine’s Beauty Editor-at-Large Rosie Green’s Instagram feed. For a beauty guru like Rosie to rave about a cream, it has to be good, so I was instantly intrigued. Good skin is priceless – nothing can make you look older/tireder/worse than a poor complexion, and equally, glowing skin can give you an almost ageless quality. Who needs expensive clothes if your face is in good shape? And this really lives up to the hype…
So first up. It’s expensive. Eyewateringly, horribly, oh-bugger expensive. But…..if you’d consider spending £129.50 on a dress or shoes, bag or a coat, then why not, well not – and spend it on a moisturiser instead? Think about it, you wear your face every day for the rest of your life. That dress, those shoes, that coat? They’re not going to last that long. Ok, so price aside. Is it worth it?
The answer is a big, fat yes. This cream is amazing. It works magic. I am, generally, tired and my skin reflects this. Dull, lined and definitely not glowing, it needs help. And help arrived in this rich, creamy deliciously textured cream. My skin looked better than it has done in ages, a little plumper, healthier – and not shiny and oily, like some moisturisers can make it. It is utterly brilliant.
So, why is it so good? Well, for starters Skinceuticals is an amazing science-based brand and this particular product is designed to tackle the signs of ageing, helping support natural skin repair and improving radiance. Lipids are natural compounds in our skin, which lessen over time. This moisturiser has the right concentration of lipids to help improve your skin’s appearance, combatting dullness, roughness and general ‘meh’-ness.
Beg, buy, steal (well, maybe not steal) or borrow. This product is amazing.
