A good while ago I received this moisturizer in PR from AOS as a top up. We are now at the end of the first package and I think it’s about time to review this daily treatment in depht.
It’s a light cream with the same colour as it’s packaging. It absorbs very well and doesn’t leave you a sticky feeling. A little goes a long way and wether you’re abundant in serums or not there’s only a peasize necessary to cover your face and neck and top part of your decolleté.
On the packaging: 7 Brighteners, 9 Antioxidants, and a 16.5% Repair Complex – What does this mean?
So there is Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, a stable fat-soluble form of Vitamin C that penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate collagen production, brighten dark spots and provide free radical protection. Astaxanthin helps brighten skin and is a potent antioxidant as well as Thiotaine and Niacinamide.
Hydrolyzed Verbascum Thapsus Flower, which protects the skin against harmful light energy sources and transforms part of the absorbed energy into visible light to brighten skin. Caffeine for tightening and de-puffing. Also antioxidant protection.
There are many more ingredients like peptides, ceramide and a lot of anti-oxidants and beneficial fatty acids., probiotics, manuka honey, hyaluronic acid and raspberry and acai seed oil.
This is an exeptional ingredient list which justifies the word treatment in the name of this cream. Based on the ingredient list the purpose of this cream is to support the skin barrier, helping skin to age well and promoting a bright and glowy appearance while keeping blemishes at bae.
Actually I always used it as a moisturizer, but calling it this way would do dishonour to the cream because it’s so much more. In the months I used this I had no problems whatsoever with my skin. Before using AOS, I sometimes woke up with tight skin and visible fine lines around my mouth and eyes. I often got a small pimple on my chin. Okay, I admit, nothing really bad. And if I went to sleep with make-up on or on holiday in extremer conditions I would be in need of skin saviours.
This completely disappeared. My skin feels resilient to changing circumstances and never feels tight. On the contrary fine lines above my lip and around my eyes are under control and waking up to tight skin belongs completely to the past.
I would certainly rebuy and it’s absolutely worth it’s money. Consider you can basically do with a cleanser or 2 to double cleanse, a mist or a simple serum to improve absorption, this cream and your SPF!
Would I do this, well no I will use this daily treatment after my usual routine and before sunscreen, because doing my routine is the best moment of the day and I want it to last forever!
