Review: Having been recently introduced to NeoStrata Facial Cleanser - and loving it - I was only too happy to review Ultra Moisturising Face Cream, a product containing polyhydroxy acid (PHA). Designed for dry and sensitive skin, this moisturiser is designed to hydrate skin, reduce the appearance of redness over time and lightly exfoliate dead skin cells. In the past four weeks I have used this moisturiser every night and while I expected the very dry skin on my nose and chin to soften, these areas are still considerably built up. Although I would never rely purely on a moisturiser to exfoliate the skin, I have also been using a cleanser rich in AHA's and occasionally exfoliate with a physical exfoliant as well. Ultra Moisturising Face Cream has helped to prevent the intrusion of fine lines and has therefore left my skin hydrated without that tight feeling when applied. The pigment in my skin has visibly evened out in the time I have used this moisturiser which is great because it means that I can go without makeup when I make a quick dash to the shops, etc. The lotion is lightweight and blends in to the skin with ease, although I like to press it in to the skin with my fingertips. While NeoStrata claims that this is fragrance free, it does contain a pleasant and very subtle scent... I guess the best way to describe the scent is a little clinical and clean. If used once or twice a day then Ultra Moisturising Face Cream should last around two months and for this price it is well worth it but personally, I would recommend this for someone with normal/dry or sensitive skin and not necessarily someone with skin that builds up quickly.
Tip: It is recommended that sunscreen is worn when using this product due to the AHA's and PHA's in the formula.
