Santaverde Hydro Repair Gel
One of the purest products I think I have ever come across, and yet packed with a veritable powerhouse of ingredients to help your skin. Recently the change in seasons, weather and central heating, along with a change in medication, have taken their toll on my skin, leaving it dull, lacklustre and uncomfortable. Sometimes dry & peeling, other times overloaded. This change in products was exactly what I needed!
The texture is amazingly soothing. You can tell from the first application that it's doing your skin a lot of good. Oilier skins can use it on its own as a moisturiser, and drier skins like mine apply as a serum and complete the moisturising routine with a cream or lotion over the top as preferred. After about 3 days I noticed that my skin was clearer and fresher. The build-up I could feel on the surface of my skin was gone and I felt healthy & glowing. This was obviously due to the cell turnaround returning to normal due to the effects of the products used in synergy with eachother. In fact a number of people commented on the radiance the repair gel had given my skin, and although I have been extremely ill I have had more compliments than ever as to how well I'm looking! It just goes to show what a good routine and a slick of lipgloss can do!
Santaverde Medium Aloe Vera Cream
I used this product in conjunction with the Hydro Repair Gel, morning and evening. Once again it is packed to the brim with a powerhouse of natural ingredients that work without upsetting the natural balance of the skin. It's not just a moisturiser; it reinforces the effects of the repair gel underneath, working in perfect synergy to give you the skin you always wanted. This range has exceeded my expectations, and I have come to realise that the right products and a simple routine are all you need. No weird diets or strange juices, just good skincare and plenty of water and you're covered. The products recommended for me to try suited me perfectly and worked together in such harmony. After a week on the routine I noticed the biggest difference of all; a slimmer, more dewy and supple face. I swear it took five years off me at least!! The inner glow was amazing and my skin has never felt so cosseted by a product before. Please, don't allow the innocuous packaging fool you. These products contain amazing ingredients that actually work, in perfect synergy with your skin's cellular rejuvenation, and the effects are amazing! This was so much more than a moisturiser. It cooled and comforted my skin, replaced moisture, enhanced the texture of my skin and *still* worked as a strong anti-ageing product. Probably the best moisturiser I have ever used!
"This cream has an unusual floral/grassy fragrance that is neither unpleasant nor over powering. Despite Jurlique being a more natural skincare line this moisturiser feels as though it contains silicone with a dense yet dry texture that just sat on the surface of my skin.
I suffer badly from dehydration and most firming creams I have tried dry my skin even more, sadly this was one of those creams! I had to apply it twice in the morning and again twice at night to get anywhere near enough moisture and the feeling did not last. After using the cream for two days my skin was crying out for a serum to give some 'deep down' moisture. All in all an okay cream but not enough moisture for my desert dry complexion!"
