I’ve been indulging in the Ceramides Soothing & Protective Day Cream from @avantskincare for a good few weeks now.
Pros: definitely one for dry skin, this soft cream melts on contact with your face, into a rich oil texture, and my god it smells FABULOUS. My skin has been well-nourished, with not a dry patch or break out in sight. It contains SPF, just enough to get you started, but I would always top up with a high protection sunscreen to get you through the day. The brand focuses on mixing natural ingredients with scientific techniques for the best of both worlds - and the result is nutrient dense products. It constrains rose and ceramides to soften and protect, avocado to nourish, as well as antioxidants and lactic acidosis to gently exfoliate. Cruelty- free, and recyclable glass.
Cons: it takes a little while for my skin to absorb this fully - this is not a product for people who don’t have dry skin. It’s got a fairly pricey price point, and does contain fragrance (but as mentioned that fragrance is LUSH). As it is in a jar, I would have liked this to come with a spatula for hygienic use (but I have kept some from other moisturizers so not a big deal for me). This is a luxe moisturizer kindly gifted to me, and my dry skin face has been spoiled living the high life.
