This is the coveted moisturiser of celebrities all over the world… I obviously had to try this at some stage in my life… so why not now!?
Used with Sea Kelp which can only be harvested at certain times of the year, it can take months to make this ‘wonder product’ and it can only be made in small batches, which explains the very high price tag at £94 for a 30ml jar! This product was developed by Dr. Max Huber who worked for NASA and got himself some pretty nasty scars from an experiment gone a little wrong. He started to develop this cream to renew the look of his skin, it took around 12 years for him to perfect this moisturiser!
So onto what I think:
The packaging of this screams luxury, its heavy glass jar, plastic spatula and thick, rich cream inside is a joy to have in my cabinet. I really want to showcase it, but alas, there’s no display pretty enough in my bathroom.
This is a very rich, thick cream. I can see why they provided a spatula as using just my fingers made it quite difficult to get out the right amount. You can of course use your fingers if you wish, but as my nails are quite long, it gets pretty difficult with such a small jar.
A little of this goes a very long way. The amount on the spatula would cover half my face in the day time, and I use twice as much at night as I really want to regenerate my skin. Once I scoop out the cream onto my fingers, I rub it in and it goes to quite a strange texture… like the cream is melting, it feels really lovely!
I simply just pat it all over my face, then smooth it over to make sure it is evenly distributed. It feels a little tacky if you rub it in too much, so I just go over my face the once. With this cream however I have to wait around 10 minutes for it to sink in before I can apply any foundation, or it will just slide straight off again! I don’t mind waiting though, because it feels really soothing and hydrating on my skin, it hasn’t felt tight in weeks, which is such a relief!
I don’t know how much this is going to help my skin in the long run, as I have no lines or wrinkles yet, but as far as hydration goes it is really spot on. My skin looks plump and feels so comfortable all day. The only problem that I have is that it is not hydrating enough for night time as I still wake up with quite dry skin I have no idea what is going to solve that problem though as I really toss and turn most nights!
Is it really worth over £94 per jar?
Not really… I will more than likely purchase this again say…. in my 30’s when my skin needs a boost and fine lines start to appear. But for now, once this is finished I wont repurchase for a while. It is however great for dry skin during winter.
I hope this review has helped anyone wishing to purchase this moisturiser!
