Are you struggling with sensitive maturing skin? Are you noticing an increased appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyper-pigmented areas, redness and/or irritation on your face and neck?
I formulated this rich facial cream to help combat and slow the visible signs of aging. Filled with organic oils, butters and actives, each specifically chosen for the benefits they bring to the finished product, this facial cream is fast absorbing and highly moisturizing. The cream contains no artificial fragrance. In the winter (when my skin is most dry) I use this cream twice daily. In the summer months this could be used once daily in the evening if you find it too rich! Our skin is naturally more moisturized in the humid summer months so feel free to adjust your use accordingly.
