Thanks to the Total Beauty Network I was able to lay my hands on the posh, pricey Pure Cloud Cream from Skyn Iceland.
I was really looking forward to trying this out and possibly doing cartwheels around the room when I heard I would get a chance to test it out! I heard big time rave reviews about not only the Pure Cloud Cream but also all of the Skyn Iceland line!
I have to give this a thumbs down sadly. For one thing the price of $75 for 1.7oz scares me slightly. I really shouldn’t say that as my regular moisturizer costs $85.45 for 1.5oz but at least it works amazingly well!
Maybe I didn’t get the benefit of it since it’s recommend for super sensitive skin types where as I’m more of a dry type during the winter. It promises to restore skin from intense weather conditions but I really wasn’t seeing much of a difference. I faced the elements for the time I was sampling it (rain, sleet, snow) and my skin came out without much change.
The formula is very thick which got me super excited as I thought it would be excellent nourishment for my dry, patchy skin. After using this for almost two weeks my skin is actually missing my old moisturizer!
It didn’t create any problems for me, it didn’t cause dry skin, or oily skin or any other such problems however it just didn’t feel like it was doing anything for my skin where as with my regular moisturizer I can feel and see it working. My face looks fresher, less dull, and moist when I use my regular brand.
At the very least for $75 bucks I was hoping I’d see some change in my face! From dull to glow? Nope. Nothing.
I can’t recommend this one for purchase but I am curious about the rest of the line!
Tell the Muse all about it!
