“Winter skincare” is always a bit of a tough one for me. After all, we don’t experience a true winter here in the tropics. There air does not become super dry and the use of those very rich moisturizers is unnecessary. However, temperatures do drop slightly and it tends to be less humid during the months of December, January and February. Though these changes are small, my skin does behave differently. Although I’m oily-combo, less moisture in the air means that my skin can become dehydrated more easily. I want something that hydrates, feels rich but isn’t heavy. I didn’t know this three months ago, but the Baborganic Calm and Relax Cream turned out to be just about perfect for my needs…

So why do I love this moisturizer? At first, I enjoyed it because despite being supremely hydrating and feeling like pure luxury when applied to the skin like a dream cream (a little goes a very long way), it also somehow felt like nothing on the skin. The condensed way to say this is lightweight. But that just doesn’t seem to adequately convey how impressed I was at the texture. It’s whipped and beautiful. Bonus: it comes tightly sealed for freshness. Love that. 🙂
More importantly, I miss this tremendously now that it’s gone. The 50 ml (1.7 oz) jar lasted me about 3 months. I ran out at the end of January so it’s been about three weeks and I can see the difference in my skin. That’s the thing about skincare – sometimes you don’t notice what wonders a product is doing until you stop using it. There is definitely more redness in my skin now. That’s not sounding right. Let me try saying that a different way. I suffer from mild rosacea and, as a result, redness. I definitely think the Baborganic Calm and Relax Cream was making a difference because, looking back, my skin had been less red over the past few months. Now that I’m out of the cream, however, I’ve noticed the redness resurfacing. Looks like I”m gonna have to stock up!
The Baborganic Calm and Relax Cream retails for $78.00 USD.
