♥ Herborist Re-energizing Cream For Face-Reviews & Swatches

Tuesday, 5 March 2013

 I never used moisturizer for face in India because of my normal skin. But France is not the same. With harsh winters, my skin is thirsty for moisturizers. And I started to hunt for a daily moisturizer. Whenever I want to search for products, I straight away land in Sephora. Then I read reviews, make a list and visit Sephora. I was thinking of buying from Clarins or Clinique. But at last ended up buying this.


I saw some of my Chinese friends using Herborist products. So when the Chinese SA suggested me to try Herborist Re-Energizing Cream, I fell in love with it for its texture and the typical Chinese Ingredient-Ginseng (and patriotism! yes, Chinese SA+Chinese product+me Indian=Patriotic Asian :P )




   Packaging  
It comes in a white glass pot and it's very heavy. The lid has flower designs and there is a small plastic lid inside. There is a plastic spatula to take out the product. So hygienic!


   Ingredients  
 Lots of chemical names with the special ingredients being
Ginseng root-toning properties
 Peach Flower Extract-moisturizing and unifying properties
Chaste tree fruit extracts-anti oxidant properties





   Texture  
The cream is so thin that it feels like a lotion but not runny. It's white as snow and gets absorbed easily.


   What Herborist says  
This soft texture cream is specially formulated with traditional Chinese herbal extracts from Prunus Persica Flower, Vitex Trifolia Fruit Extract and Panax Ginseng Root Extract. The active ingredients contained in this formula will penetrate within your skin to deliver a concentrated skin care of your dull, pale or haggard skin. It gives you the radiant and luminous skin.

   How to apply  
After cleanser, toner and serum, apply an appropriate amount (about the size of 2 pearls) onto your face.

   My experience   
I don't like my face looking oily when I use creams but at the same time I like to have a glow. This cream is luminous after applying and is absorbed well by the skin. It imparts elasticity and my skin feels firm when I use it. It moisturizes well. I don't feel dryness and my skin looks normal all day long. It smells like raw green plants/leaves and it doesn't bother me. It has unified my skin tone and I'm loving my skin. I'm using it everyday after cleansing my face. At night, I continue Biotique Bio-Coconut Whitening and Brightening cream. After using for about 2 weeks now, I feel my skin sooo soft, well and evenly toned, luminous and what not?!
