I consider a good moisturiser a staple product in my daily make up routine as well as my daily cleansing routine. Although I'm only nearly 24 I do worry about my skin & the up and coming wrinkles, so when I see a new cream I can't wait to give it a go.
A few weeks ago on lunch, I 'somehow happened' to be in Superdrug when I spotted this little lovely.
L'Oreal Triple Active Nourish Moisturiser
I normally use Superdrugs own brand Vitamin E moisturiser but while in the aisle (it rhymes ha-ha) I took a normal look at the competition & spotted this on offer. I read the benefits and quickly added it to my basket.
On paper it seemed amazing. They claim "The ceramide complex of Triple Action Nourish stimulates the production of Lipids* in the skin)
* Lipids are a barrier for the skin against infection, weather, sun etc.. so pretty important
They claim the Actions of this cream are to "Hydrate for 24 hours, Protect the skin as it includes a UVB filter and to Nourish as it is rich in essential fatty acids Omega 3 & 6 and the product contains Omega Ceramides"
All sounds great right? So that night after I cleansed I couldn't wait to smother it on my skin. The first thing I noticed was the smell. I can't put my finger on what it is but it smells so good. It reminded me a bit of Dove soap mixed with something else. Vanilla? I'm not sure but whatever it is I like it. I looked on the ingredients list and they have added Parfum/Fragrance to it, so if your skin is sensitive or bad with fragrance then I'm not sure if this product would agree with it.
This cream is very rich and you really do not need a lot as it spreads like a dream. Although this cream is for Dry to Very Dry skin it isn't greasy, and does sink in really well after a minute or two. I wouldn't recommend it for Oily skin though as it is quite rich. I have normal skin and it worked like a dream so don't be put off if you don't suffer from Dry skin. A few minutes later I rubbed my skin and it was soft like silk. So far I love.
The next morning I wanted to see how make up went over it so I cleansed and applied this to my face. After about 1-2 minutes it had sunk in and I applied my makeup as normal. There was no greasy sheen to my face then nor a few hours later and my make up went on lovely. Yipee!
Well after three weeks of using this cream I absolutely love it. My skin does always feel hydrated, comfortable and nourished and my Mum has commented on how healthy it looks.
I will definitely be picking this up again!
You can get it from Superdrug, Boots and all supermarkets now for £6.12.
