Winter skin can be such a tricky beast. It gets dry so easily, but you also don't want to pile on too much moisturiser, given that you'd end up with a greasy and cold face - no thank you! When the Nu Skin Nutricentials Moisture Restore Intense Moisturiser, I was more than happy to swatch it, and I was even happier to find that this had the right level of moisture that I wanted on my skin.
This moisturiser is meant to help your skin adapt to environmental stressors like late nights, pollution and UV rays, all to help fight fatigue. Essentially, it's perfect for the modern age, and the modern woman who has to juggle life and well, everything else!
This contains bioadaptive botanicals, which are plants that thrive in extreme climates (ie plants that adapt well to their surroundings). These plants include rhodiola, maral root, Siberian ginseng, chaga mushroom and resurrection plant, which are supposed to help the skin recover from stressors. This moisturiser also has pistachio nut oil to help keep the skin soft and smooth and vitamin E as an antioxidant to help protect the skin from oxidative stress. With all of these ingredients, this is meant to help moisturise, condition and enhance the skin's barrier.
It comes in an opaque white jar with a green screw top, holding 75 ml of product. The cream is thick, and is absorbed quickly without leaving skin feeling greasy, or on the other end of the spectrum, un-moisturised. Instead, this strikes a good balance, and you get the soft, moisturised skin without having to wait around for it to sink into the face.
I can't say I've noticed it helping with the environmental stressors, but based on the texture of the cream, and feel of my skin alone, I definitely like this stuff and I'm glad I still have about half of the jar left to go! This retails for $76.50, and you can find the stockists for this over here.
