I was lucky to receive a whole array of luxurious bath, beauty and skincare products at Christmas time. One that I absolutely love is the Aveda Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Creme.
I had already worn out a teeny tiny travel sized version of this near the beginning of 2014 and when that had run out I had reverted to another trusty (but cheap) moisturiser. This Christmas I was gifted the full size and I love it!
First of all, I have to say that I really like the packaging for some reason. There’s not much to it, just a green pot and a lid and all the usual stuff on the label. I just like the earthy green colour because it looks natural and feels kind of expensive to hold. The scent matches this earthiness; it’s very, very subtly planty smelling, but don’t be put off if this doesn’t appeal to you, because the smell is not noticeable at all once it’s on your face.
The consistency of this product reflects it’s luxury elements, as it is thick but not too thick and rich in the perfect way. It really dos hydrate well, and it sinks in to the skin so quickly. It doesn’t feel sticky or tacky, which is another factor that adds to how great this product is.
At Aveda, the moisturiser retails for £35. It is a pretty pricey face cream but it is definitely worth it if you’re looking for a straight-up, good quality, super hydrating moisturiser. It’s a real skin treat and I recommend you all get your hands on it!
