This was another goody that was given to me by the lovely Holly Arabella. I was so excited to use this as my skin is dryer than the desert. First of all, I worried that it was going to be greasy like most oils are, so that was one thing that put me off trying it. Not only is my skin incredibly dry, I also have uneven skin tone and imperfections so I was curious to how this would work. Just before I received this my dry skin got out of control. Anyone who has me on Twitter may know that when I woke up one morning my face was tight, soar, red and most of all - my whole face was visibly dry. My eyelids where flaky, my cheeks were hurting and I couldn't touch my skin as it stung. To this day I still have no idea what caused this, I've never had dry skin so bad. I thought that a good step for me is to not wear any make up for that week. At first I started using Clinique Moisture Serge to sort it out, and then came to use this bad boy. It claims to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry or damaged skin, uneven skin tone and aging skin.
First there is a handy pump dispenser which is really handy. I'm not sure yet if I prefer a pump bottle or a spray. After putting one pump into my hand, I got the smell of gorgeous Cocoa. For some reason I really thought it was going to smell like oil (I have no idea why) but it smelt lovely. I then applied it sparingly to my face, concentrating on my most driest parts. For a few minutes I thought my face felt oily, so I went to the mirror but there was no traces of oil to be seen. After a few minutes longer I could no longer feel it on my face, and instantly my face felt a lot better. After 1 week of using this my face is almost back to it's normal self, only more plumper. I also used it on my body as it has dry patches too, and it worked a treat. Straight after coming out of he shower, before bed or when I wake up I pop this baby on straight away. My body thanks me for it! My skin feels like velvet once applied. I also dab a bit of this on my face now before I apply my make up instead of other moisturizers I used to use. This is by far the most versatile product I have come across, and it's answered my dry woes. You can get this in a few chemists, Boots (£9.49 for 150mls) and Superdrug. It may be a bit pricey for some people, but you get plenty of product and you only need 1 pump to cover and area. I am completely in love with this and will carry on using this until the bottle is empty! Thank you so much for reading. Have you ever tried using this? What do you use for dry skin?
