glow revival cream
shea butter 5%
comforting cream / light
I have sensitive skin and in winter my rather normal skin tends to become very dry and therefore needs an extra dose of moisture. as you can read from the title I use different creams in winter than I use in summer and if I am not using a cream I am using a dry oil – like the one from LUBEX anti-age or the one from Kiehls – and if that is not the case either I am using a cream mask over night. after cleaning my face with either a cleansing oil or a cleansing balm I apply toner and then my skin is ready for the cream. try to wash your hands before scooping cream out of the container. unfortunately all the creams I use at the moment are not to squeeze and thats really a negative thing when you have sensitive skin. you want to be sure that your cream is free from bacteria or germs. but the advantage of these containers is that you can scoop every last tiny part out and can use the jars for DIY things like making your own candles or creams. the SHISEIDO cream came with a tiny spatula. I use this to apply all the creams and I wash it with very hot water after every use.
if you love almonds you are going to love this moisturising cream by KORRES, a greek brand. (product are made in Greece)
if your skin has lost the glow you had during summer then you are going to love the glow revival cream by SHISEIDO, a japanese brand. (but the product is made in France)
if your skin is very dry and needs more comfort then you are going to love this comforting cream by L’Occitane, a french brand. (product made in France)
so as you can see, I need all of these benefits and am a big lover of natural almond scents. there is a huge difference between natural scents and artificial ones. I absolutely dislike artificial vanilla or almond scents but I love natural almond blossom scents and thats why I love the KORRES cream. the cream by SHISEIDO is the most active one out of the 3, and with a sensitive skin you have to be careful what you use and have to check how active creams can be for you without breaking out. in my case my skin allows me to use the SHISEIDO glow revival cream twice a week and I prefere to wear it over night.
