Can be purchased: on Yesstyle HERE (Get 10% off using my referral code: CVQFZA)

They also sell on sokoglam

Volume: 60ml

Price: £12.84 (on Yesstyle)

Packaging: Plastic tub with a screw on lid. Makes it easy to travel with and light.

What is it: A Moisturising Cream (Gel/water-based)

What does it contain?:

Pure fermented Green Tea Extract and Distilled water.

Who’s it good for?:

Oily skins

Dehydrated Skins

Dry Skins

Sensitive Skins

(Does contain essential oil – BUT this did not irritate my skin when I had a disrupted skin barrier).

Price: roughly $25 for 60ml Or roughly $34 for 100ml

Why do I like it?: when I had overused retinol and my skin was severely irritated – every other cream I used burned EXCEPT THIS. This actually made my skin calm down and get to repairing itself.

Description: Contains pure fermented green tea extract and distilled water. Gel-based providing intense hydration without being sticky or too heavy. over 63% Green tea ferment extract. allows skin to retain moisture by forming a hydration layer.

Texture: Lighter than the Klairs Vitamin E mask, but it is almost pudding-y. Doesn’t feel silicone-y at all (even though it has a “methicone” in it – probably why it holds it shape when you dip your finger in – it does leave a hint of oil residue / feeling once fully rubbed in but I’m oily / acne prone and it’s not an issue for my skin i.e. doesn’t make it feel uncomfortable.

-Not sticky or heavy

Pudding-like texture
Gone!

Key Ingredients: Green Tea (calming, antioxidant), Butylene Glycol (hydrating) and Glycerine (Hydrating)

Full Ingredients List:

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Aka green tea), Cyclomethicone, Propanediol, Glycerin, Glycereth-26 Pantaerythrityl Teraethylhexanoate Buthylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate Sorbitan Olivate Cetearyl Olivate 1,2-Hexanediol Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6 Polysilicone-11 Phytosterly/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil Citrus Limon (Lemon) Seed Oil Disodium EDTA 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid

Fragrance?: Yes. Not a fan of that essential oil smell (but it’s not enough to deter me). For those who like fragrance – it smells “fresh” and “green” if that makes sense!

Good Under Makeup?: Yes. Absolutely fine for me.

The Good:

-Plastic packaging makes it easier to travel with

-Moisturising/hydrating

-Melts into the skin but forms an occlusive barrier at the same time

-Does not sting / burn or itch – even when using retinol

-Great for my oily skin

-Cooling (quite a cold cream) Great for overheated skin

The Bad:

-Wish there was even more in a tub (because I’m greedy and I love it)

-Not a fan of the essential oil smell (i’d prefer no fragrance)

-The near-pudding texture can make it quite difficult to manipulate (there’s a small risk it could fall off your face before rubbing in) – But this is not as pudding-ish as the Klairs Vitamin E mask.

Overall: One of my favourite creams ever. I don’t like the smell BUT really do enjoy this product as a whole. It hydrates, it moisturises. And oh my goodness – IT DOES NOT BURN. There’s quite a lot in a tub so it should last a while (but not for me because I slather it on myself)

Overall Score: 5/5 – I would repurchase.
