Product: Holistix Rose & Frankincense Moisturizing Cream
What I Love: I met Laura, the owner of this natural, 100-percent vegan skincare company, at the annual VegFest event in London this past September. Within a few minutes of talking to her and explaining how I've been searching for a really effective moisturizer that doesn't contain beeswax, Laura took the time to ask me about my skin and issues I was experiencing. I liked that. After assessing my needs, she pointed me toward her delicious-smelling Rose and Frankincense cream. While I didn't like hearing that I was a good match for a product aimed at "maturing, blemish-prone" skin, facts are facts (!), so I bought a jar and took it home to try.
For the past two weeks, I've been using this cream every morning and evening. It glides on smoothly and melts right into my skin, leaving it soft and supple but not at all greasy. While I don't think it actually prevents breakouts, it seems like it helps my skin heal faster than normal, and with less obvious red marks. I really, really like the smell, and would slather it all over my entire body if it was sold by the liter. It is actually sold by the small, 60 ml. jar,, and costs the equivalent of $16 US.
