Consider me your poster child for winter skin! Come November in Canada and I have dry, itchy ,flaky,dull looking.. plain gross skin ! I`ve tried Cerave, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Baume Mineral, Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturizer,Marula oil …and a multitude of other lotions and potions. This is the only moisturizer that worked for me. I found it at JeanCoutu , here in Montreal and it plain got rid of my horrid winter skin within 2-3 days of using it. It moisturizes and hydrates and keeps it that way for atleast eight-ten hours if not more ( I generally reapply it anyway after this time so I cant comment on its effectiveness longer than that).Its on the thicker side but gets completely absorbed by my skin. Makes an excellent base for makeup, but I do apply an SPF on top as this has no SPF in it.
This is a no-nonsense, moisture-packed face cream that’s paraben-free, fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. Does what it`s supposed to and then some. If you have winter skin and have access to a store that carries this , I highly recommend giving it a try!
