In my last post, I showed you my current skincare products, one of which is this awesome cream from Ole Henriksen.
I've been a fan of Ole Henriksen since I discovered the Sugar Glow scrub, which smells delicious and is an effective and gentle exfoliator. Every time I drag my boyfriend into Sephora, we like to sample Ole Henriksen products, and my need for this Nurture Me cream came out of one of those excursions!
I've never been a fan of pots as packaging for creams (it always seems to get under your nails when you stick your finger in!) but at least this pot design is quite sturdy and feels nice. I love the smell, which was initially what excited me about this product. I'm not brilliant at describing scent, but to me it is a bit like orange creamsicle! I also enjoy the light, whipped texture of the cream - it looks like a whipped yogurt in the jar, and it feels quite smooth and comforting going onto my skin.
On the label, it mentions sensitive skin and rosacea, and I thought this might be good for a more even complexion. Here's what Sephora says about it:
What it is formulated to do: This intensively hydrating formula melts into the skin, erasing the discomfort of a taut, dry complexion. Nature's most precious oils, such as wheat germ and primrose, recondition skin back to a more youthful suppleness, while rose mosquette oil repairs. Dimethicone, a silicone fluid, adds smoothness while vitamins A, C, and K infuse strength and vitality.
Let me just say, I love this cream. Initially, it really helped my dehydrated skin retain moisture, and it minimized the redness on my cheeks while not feeling heavy. (While I love Clinique Redness Solutions for making my skin even, it is quite heavy to me and I don't feel like using it except in the coldest winter weather...) The first few days I used Nurture Me, my skin was noticeably more even when I woke up in the morning. And the tightness I experienced in some areas went away!
So, at least for the moment, I love this cream. I don't know how I would feel about it in humid, hot temperatures, but I do think it is great for my skin and potentially wonderful year round! There are a number of other Ole Henriksen products I'd like to try as well. Have you tried Ole Henriksen? What are your favorites?
