This Cruelty-free Face Cream Might be the Answer to Your Dry Skin Problems
If you’re like me and suffer from dry skin or if you just want to rock glowing, healthy-looking skin; there's a solution for you. I suffered from dry, eczema-prone skin all my life. This caused me to spend countless hours at the dermatologist and burnt money on skin products in hopes of rescuing my skin. I have tried many products, and many products worked. But at certain times, these creams caused clogged pores, acne and even eye milia due to the excess oil in products made for people with dry skin. Yes, I enjoy a little glow, but I don’t want to wake up with clogged pores in the morning.One day I entered a pharmacy, desperate for relief from dry eye patches around my eyes and lips and I came across Uriage XÉMOSE Face Cream. To be honest, I have seen the brand many times before, I just never paid much attention to it. The product might turn some people off for its relatively high price compared to drugstore creams. But I reassure you, the results are worth it.The cream is non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, and it is hypoallergenic. In other words, it will not clog your pores, it will not sting, and it is less likely to cause you an allergic reaction - a plus for people with sensitive skin. The product contains Uriage thermal water meant to re-balance the microbial barrier, Chronoxine to bring an instant soothing action, Cerasterol 2F to strengthen the skin barrier with 24-hr effectiveness and TLR2 Complex to regulate the innate immune barrier.The brand’s website recommends applying the cream morning and evening on a cleansed and dried face. However, I have used it once a day, and I have seen instant results. It got rid of my dry patches and kept my face looking healthy. The cream comes in a 40 mL tube which might be a downer for some people. It lasted me a long time because I only needed to apply a little bit of product to see good results.If you’re hesitant about trying this product due to its small size and its price tag, I suggest you use it alongside your daily moisturizer to target problematic areas. Or use it whenever you want instantaneous results.
