This is going to be part four of the my ongoing series #PamperWeekend where I basically show you all the amazing skincare products that I have been loving recently. Make sure to tweet me using the hashtag all the products you’ve been loving too so that I can get some more inspiration.
It’s very rare that I come across a moisturiser that I don’t like simply because I have normal/combo skin so I don’t tend to have major problems with my skin other than the odd breakout (which tends to be hormone related 99% of the time). I’ve found one and it comes in the form of the Environ Essential AVST 1 Moisturiser. This moisturiser claims to be super hydrating on the skin whilst being lightweight. It states that it reduces fine lines and improves the appearance of the skin.
That’s all good and well but in my opinion and on my skin it didn’t do that. Texture wise this moisturiser was very thick in consistency and I found that it took forever to soak into my skin. It was hydrating but it left behind so much greasy residue when applied that I just didn’t find it pleasant to apply. Under foundation, it turned even the most matte foundation I have into an over-dewy mess making me look like a grease ball at the end of the day.
This moisturiser does come with a pump so I do give it points for it’s packaging. With regards to the reducing fine lines, I found my little lines around my eyes to still be the same after using this for a month. I recommend if you want a product for that purpose to try out their Environ Youth Essential Eye Gel which I love.
This product retails for 49 euros and for a price tag that high I personally expected more. Now that I’m finished testing it for this review I don’t find myself reaching for it ever and that just shows me how much this product just didn’t work for me. Maybe dry skin gals may like it 🙂
