Eucerin Aquaporin Active Cream Review

ecn_15810_69781_aquaporin_day_spf_25_ps_print111111-800x600

Pros:

Gives great hydration.

Cons:

No anti-wrinkle properties.

More:

This cream worked great for me – I have very dry skin, that likes to transform into oily skin (due to all the dryness) which causes huge break-outs. So my mission has been to find a cream which provides me with only moisture but no “fat”, and this cream does that for me.  It‘s very light in texture and can be used both during the winter and the summer, and I use it as a day and night cream (because I‘m on a budget).

This cream was one of my weapons when I decided to try to get rid of my break-outs/acne without medication. And it worked. I also used African black soap, the enzyme peel by Emma S and tea tree oil.

What are the minuses? The cream has no anti-wrinkle active ingredients, just pure hydration.

Emma S Sensitive Day Cream Review

Pros:

Very nourishing and light.

Cons:

Isn‘t suitable for winter when my skin is super dry.

More:

I have previously written about cool Swedish Emma S Wiklund. This face cream is part of the line for sensitive skin, and I have been using it for a few months. It is very nourishing, feels very light on my skin, gets absorbed quickly and leaves my skin very soft – as promised. I think this is a great mid price range cream, and my sensitive skin has responded well to it (aka not broken out). What I don‘t like is, that it is only suitable for the “warm” times of the year, I first tried to use this cream back in november, when my skin was very dry and it was simply not giving me enough moisture – now that spring is here, my skin is in a better place and I replaced my oils with this face cream.

Eau Thermale Avène Light hydrating cream Review

Pros:

It´s very hydrating and my skin feels great after using it.

Cons:

I still need to use masks and night serums during the winter to keep my skin hydrated.

More:

There is something about buying beauty products at the pharmacy, you just feel like they wouldn’t sell you anything bad or would they? The hype surrounding french pharmacies has reached such peak that the french brands such this one are now available in my local pharmacy, which feels very luxurious – I can feel french while doing something so unglamorous as picking up antibiotics for my throat infection in my uggs.

I have sensitive skin and the combination skin type which is what the cream is for.

About the cream: it promises to hydrate your skin, make it smooth and protect you from signs of ageing. I can’t say anything  about the ageing effect, because I think it’s not possible to measure, but this cream makes my skin feel great. It’s light and makes my skin smooth, it doesn’t smell of anything, which is a big plus (since most products that say that they “don’t smell” smell synthetic). Also it’s cheap. Old french trusted brand plus cheap is a trustworthy combination at least for me. This cream is very light and during the cold months I cheat and add overnight masks and serums to my regime to feel extra hydrated, but overall I really like it.
