However, skyn ICELAND Pure Cloud Cream has come to the rescue! For the past month I've tested out this face moisturizer that has been dubbed as being "light-as-air". That's certainly an understatement. Here are some of the ingredients in skyn ICELAND Pure Cloud Cream:
■ Peptides help relieve skin irritation and discomfort by stimulating the release of endorphins—natural messengers
of happiness—and modulating release of tension-causing neurotransmitters.
■ Oat extract is an active extract that acts as an anti-irritant to reduce discomfort after skin trauma.
■ Hydrolyzed rice protein helps preserve healthy collagen.
■ Almond oil moisturizes and is rich in vitamins A, B and E.
■ Sodium hyaluronate is a powerful moisturizer.
■ ImmunoBoost absorbs UVB light that compromises skin’s immune function, thus stabilizing and fortifying skin.
■ Bisabolol is an anti-irritant that keeps skin calm and soothed.
■ Aloe moisturizes and helps heal irritated, stressed skin.
■ Biospheric Complex, a proprietary blend that delivers the unmatched purity and vital nutrients of Iceland’s natural resources (water, earth and air) to restore and rebalance stressed-out skin; mineral-rich Icelandic glacial water (water), indigenous arctic berries (earth) and oxygenated liposomes, butterfly bush and thyme extracts (air) unite to dramatically
soothe, strengthen and stabilize stressed skin.
What I like about this moisturizer is that a little bit goes a long way. At $75 for a 1.7 oz jar, those of us on a beauty budget need as much help as we can get in terms of stretching the dollar! The only problem I had with it is that I couldn't stop putting it on after I had already covered every inch of my face. It just feels so goood...and sooo soft!
Ok, so you know how it feels, but does the cream actually work?
It hasn't worked for everybody, but I would say it worked for me to a certain extent. My skin at the top of my forehead tends to get real dry and it didn't quite work for this area. I do attribute this moisturizer to a noticeably softer and even skin tone. It's helped with some of the blotchiness around the nose and chin. I know that this cream is targeted for people who have over-stressed skin due to peels, facials, and laser treatment, so I didn't really expect any miracles as far as relieving my super-dry skin.
