Simi kindly informed me that in my case, the most suitable category is Aqua Pura since I am suffering from dry, irritated and eczema-prone skin, so I was sent the Sweet Almond Hydra Crème that promises to help to hydrate my face.
Upon the first applications, I was worried my skin was intolerant to almond oil or another ingredient in this product because my dry patches of eczema and irritated skin did sting a bit, but with consistent use, my skin fortunately calmed down.
While having a nice and somewhat thick consistency, the Sweet Almond Hydra Crème is really lightweight and I like how it seems to envelop my skin in a soothing cocooning, instead of disappearing right away - does this make sense? It is not greasy and it does quickly sink into the skin but I like how I can feel my skin being moisturized throughout the day, and this is what makes the difference to me between an hydrating and a moisturizing product.
I have been using this product every morning since I received it somewhere in the middle of October, and you can barely tell because the little pot still appears almost untouched - you only need the smallest quantity of product since this Sweet Almond Hydra Crème is really rich. Talking about packaging - this product comes in a cute little plastic post, and until very recently, I would have been tempted to say that such packaging tend to look and feel a bit cheap, but since I dropped and broke my glass jar of $40 NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra-Comfortable Face Cream, let's just say that I now favour practicality instead of beauty.
