Although my skin is combination/oily (though nowhere near as oily as it used to be), when the winter comes if I'm not careful with what skincare I use, it can easily become dry or dehydrated. Although I don't particularly have any deep lines to address, the Claudia Louch Botanical Face Cream with Deep Line Complex has been a welcome addition to my hydrating skincare lineup.
Containing 94% natural ingredients including Aloe Vera Gel, Vitamin E, Vegetable Glycerin, African Shea Butter and Jojoba, Avocado and Grape Seed Oils, the mild and gentle formula of the Botanical Night Cream is designed for normal to dry, sensitive and mature skins. This cream is absolutely packed full of hydrating ingredients and the Grape Seed Oil has added benefits of having anti-ageing properties that help to tighten, tone and soothe the skin.
Although I have occasionally used this in the mornings, the rich, velvety formula is generally more suited to the nighttime as it takes a bit longer to absorb (and I'm always in a rush!). The Botanical Face Cream feels seriously silky on the skin and despite the high content of oils, it doesn't actually feel oily nor does it leave any greasy residue, but it does give that nourishing, brightening boost that you get from a separate facial oil. Claudia Louch clearly have formulated the perfect combination of ingredients here. I don't particularly feel that my skin has benefited from any toning or tightening, though I would imagine if there were to be, it would be quite a natural and subtle effect based on the ingredients list.
The Claudia Louch Botanical Face Cream with Deep Line Complex is priced at £61.50, so is very much in the high end bracket when it comes to price. I would recommend it if you don't like using facial oils but want a product that gives you many of the benefits of one, or if you simply want to cut down on using a separate moisturiser and oil. I like this cream very much, but on the other hand I am very fond of my Antipodes and Pai facial oils and I find myself reaching more for these of an evening.
Have you tried the Claudia Louch Botanical Face Cream? What are your favourite nighttime facial moisturisers/oils?
