    KEY ACTIVES INGREDIENTS:

    VEGAN FRIENDLY

    Rose Essential Oil            
    This special oil has a gentle, floral aroma that is extremely mood enhancing. It is used in skincare when treating sensitive skin and can also lift the spirits. Only a little of this essence is required, as its perfume is intense.

    Bergamot Essential Oil  

    Bergamot is an essence taken from the peel of a Mediterranean citrus fruit. Its delightful fresh fragrance has an uplifting and calming effect.

    Peptides             

    Peptides are chains or bonds of amino acids. Acetyl Tetrapeptide-15 or the “comforting” peptide is a cell communicating ingredient. It acts to soothe and provide a “pain killer” effect to subdue skin reactions and reduce discomfort.

    Evening Primrose Oil     

    Extracted from the seeds of the plant. Evening Primrose oil is rich in Gamma- Linolenic essential fatty acid, particularly omega 6. Called “essential” because our body cannot reproduce them, they form part of the lipid layer and are vital for healthy skin. They help prevent skin dryness, restore optimal moisture balance and maintain the skin’s barrier function.

    Blackcurrant Seed Oil    

    From the seed of the blackcurrant shrub. Blackcurrant Seed Oil is particularly high in gamma linolenic essential fatty acid, particularly Omega 6 and Omega 3. Called “essential” because our body cannot reproduce them, they form part of the lipid layer and are vital for healthy skin. They help prevent skin dryness, restore optimal moisture balance and maintain the skin’s barrier function.

    Shea Butter       

    This is fat extracted from the kernels of the African tree. Aids absorption of active ingredients and leaves a protective film on the skin.

    Cassia Alata Leaf Extract               

    From a tropical habitat, this extract from the Cassia Alata plant has developed a powerful defence mechanism. It is rich in flavonoids; particularly K30S Kaempferol. This compound helps to protect nuclear and mitochondrial DNA from degradation. It supports the cell’s natural repair system by combating the harmful effects of the sun.

    MY IMPRESSION

    I try this product from LF monthly beauty box. I fall in love with the formula but I cannot use the product because it is for cobination skin. I posted on my Instagram and telling on the caption that my skin is dry with my pint regarding the formula. The brand approached me and sent me the product.

    I bring this product while travelling, with the risk that it may not be suitable for my skin and I have no backup for my skincare. Yet, I do have the feel that the recovery balm will work. I use in the night and when my skin is really dry. San Fransisco have cold and windy weather at that time, it is suitable to use the recovery balm

    The result is perfect. My skin has stopped suffering from adult acnes, dryness and dehydration. I only use sheetmask when I feel my skin is dry after exfoliation and after I use tretinoin to help my skin regeneration. Beside that my skin is really smooth and moist. I even don’t use anymore foundation, concealer and even primer to sustain my makeup during Chinese New Year. I guess I am going to buy this product for my skincare routine. I have no complained regarding this product. I use this for about a month already and there is no skin problem occurred at all, and I feel my skin pH is starting to grow back to normal. The recovery balm really help to restore my skin into original condition.

    PRODUCT OUTLOOK

    The packaging is made of plastic and it is tube applicator. Press the body to let the cream out. I applied this product every morning only

    The packaging contain label of:

    • Using the best of nature
    • Against animal testing
    • Made in UK

    The size of the product is 50 ml. You can see they listed all the ingredients.

    The cream is soft and blend quickly into skin. I can feel that it is really moisten my skin and giving pH balance into the deepest layer of my skin. You can use exfoliation tonic before you use the cream. The balm doesn’t have any minty feelings when it touches my skin. I prefer that way since I feel a little bit paranoid if using the mint face cream, not my style.

    I use the cream only at night while I use the Essential Element from MONU Skin in the morning. I also add hydrating cream and occlusive after I use the recovery balm because my skin is always dry and dehydrated when I wake up, therefore, I feel it is necessary for my skin to consume moisturiser and hydrator during night time. I have also added Tretinoin every twice a week. I will be talking about Tretinoin in the upcoming article, you can subscribe to get notification for the upcoming article.
