This is one of my Mum’s favourite face creams as she suffers from dry skin during her mature years. This cream does not have the frills and fragrance of many face creams and contains 25% natural shea butter which is deeply hydrating on the skin. It also contains wheat extract, vitamins and minerals, and chestnut extract that are natural strengthening agents on the skins surface. The pot is a heavyweight glass with a silver metal twist off lid. The pot comes foil sealed for freshness. The texture of the cream in the pot is very thick and I personally find it easier to warm the cream between the hands first. When applied however the rich formula sinks into the skin immediately and leaves a beautiful sheen to skin with no greasiness. The formula is also non-comedogenic which means it does not block the pores. The cream is so rich you only need a small amount and after application your skin is immediately softened, supple and deeply moisturized. The fragrance is a very subtle shea butter scent with no added perfume which is fabulous for sensitive skins.
I could not use this cream on a daily basis as my skin simply does not need such a rich cream but we do have a pot for emergencies. My husband is even happy to use this due to its lack of feminine fragrance when his skin suffers during harsh weather. It heals, rehydrates and protects even the driest skins without irritation or breakouts. The pot lasts a very long time so do not be put off by the price. For a cream that contains no parabens, chemicals or harsh ingredients this pot is worth every penny
