This is another new brand and product I have bought recently from amazon through a site I write reviews for on amazon.

~~~~~~ ALL PACKED UP ~~~~~~
This product comes in a frosted glass jar with a plastic screw top lid. I do like jars as you can get every last bit out but you do have to be sure your fingers are clean to prevent contamination. You could use a small spatula too if you wanted to be extra careful.
The jar holds a good amount, 50 ml of the cream and costs £16.95 on both sites I mentioned.
I like the fact this is a glass jar as it is fully recyclable but if you keep your beauty products in the bathroom and have ceramic tiles then be careful not to drop it.
~~~~~~ MY VIEWS AND EXPERIENCE ~~~~~~
This moisturiser is a creamy white and quite a nice soft light cream yet it is rich and very moisturising.
Green Keratin say “ This ultra-hydrating, luxurious face cream helps improve firmness and elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin appears softer, smoother and more radiant.”
I have been using this for about six weeks and the jar is under half full now. I have found it a very nice and hydrating without making my face feel greasy or clogged with a heavy cream.
I still have my lines and wrinkles but they will always be there I fear and all I can do is stop them getting worse I think. My skin looks healthy and feels nice and soft yet firm not saggy.
The moisturiser has lots of great natural ingredients including the anti-aging and moisture-loving and smoothing vegan hyaluronic Acid which is sometimes called “The Fountain of Youth”.
Vitamin C in the form of Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is a great anti oxidant.
A far more stable Vitamin C derivative that overcomes the oxidation problems associated with ascorbic acid. Anti-oxidant.
It also has Organic Apricot Oil which is rich in vitamins essential fatty acids and nutrients and helps to condition the skin and really helps with dry skin.
Vitamin E which is also an anti-oxidant and is also good for conditioning the skin
The organic frankincense oil is toning and invigorating so stimulated the skin giving it a healthy look.
It also has lovely organic rose geranium essential oil which re-balances the moisture levels in the skin and helps to refresh and revitalise the skin.
I use this as my day moisturiser and always apply this after cleansing my face, toning and using a serum. Some days that is all I do but on others I then apply my make up which sits well on this and doesn’t cause make up to lip or become uneven.
This has a pleasant scent, fresh and subtle which may be from the frankincense and rose geranium which are both essential oils I love.
This moisturiser is suitable for all skin types but they do say if irritation occurs then stop using it which is common sense I would think.
I am a more mature person and my skin is a combination and I have found this a great moisturiser as it nourishes my dry skin while not making my T zone greasy either. I love that this soaks into my skin really quickly and leaves my skin feeling nicely balanced and soft and smooth.
I always apply my moisturiser not only to all my face but also to my neck as well as that is exposed and needs moisturising as I think a saggy neck makes you look a lot older. This also feels good on my neck and soaks in there too.
I have sensitive skin but I have had no adverse reaction from using this moisturiser and the pot is almost finished now. I have been very pleased with how this leaves my skin looking and feeling and as I said it smells nice too.
I do like to use products that use natural ingredients where I can especially when they are effective and make my skin feel good.
I had not heard of this company before but I am very pleased I have found this as it a lovely light, effective and pleasant smelling moisturiser.
