but recently this theory has been completely rebuffed thanks to a cheap as chips face cream.
how cheap you say? less than £2 (yes really).
i was rummaging around in my mum’s beauty drawers when i stumbled upon the cream, nestled among clarins and lancome tubs and tubes.
my skin has been suffering from the harsh winter weather and has been flakey, dry and in general need of some tlc – the thick cream soothed and hydrated my skin without being too greasy. i’m rather picky with what i put on my face because my skin is sensitive, but i didn’t encounter any adverse effects from the cream.
i wasn’t familiar with the lacura brand but because i was so impressed with the product i asked my mum if i could have hers (she’s rather good at selflessly adding to my toiletries).
after a quick google search i realised it was the same brand that hit headlines two years ago, thanks to an anti-wrinkle serum, which comes at a won’t break the bank price of £4.99.
i’m currently using the restorative night cream for mature skin, twice a day, because yes, i like to break the rules. the cream contains coenzyme q10 and a calcium complex, but to be honest i couldn’t care less what it’s in it, it has done wonders for my complexion and that is what counts.
