PRICE & AVAILABILITY
The bottle contians 50ml of product.
I first read about this moisturiser on the amazing Jennypurr's blog. As most of you know on and off I suffer from occasional breakouts as combo skin is really a nuisance. The worst part is trying to keep a balance between the dryness and oiliness of my face.
Elemental Herbology Moisture Milk comes in a classy, thin, silver metallic bottle with a press function on top. It contains a very lightweight, serum-like white substance that sinks beautifully into the skin within seconds. I particularly love its refreshing scent. Ooh feels so good on! It is instructed to use the Moisture Milk at daytime because of its exfoliation properties. I used it day and night in the beginning, it never bothered me, but for no particular reason I then shifted to daytime only.
It contains a whole lot of amazing ingredients that work for troublesome skin and help in keeping it clear, smooth and even. The Glycolic and Lactic Acid help improve skin texture and reduce pigmentation. There is the Tea Tree and Rosemary Oil for fighting breakouts and Aloe Vera for soothing skin.
This goodness is perfect for combination and oily skins. Perfect! Its anti-bacterial properties has helped keep my breakouts at bay. It makes my skin feel super plump, nourished and moisturised. It helps relieve congestion and lessen sebum production, keeping a perfect balance between my oily t-zone and dry cheek area.
Although yes in the very dry and harsh winters I use it on top of my Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum for extra rich hydration. Apart from that, we are going to be best pals in the upcoming summer. I don't think I will be needing anything else, except of course a sunscreen since this does not contain SPF.
I do agree it's pricey, but if your skin issues make you pull your hair in frustration, this is worth it.
