OUT: Alverde –  Hornhaut-Reduziercreme (3,95 €/50 ml)

What alverde says:

alverde Hautpflege erfüllt mit sorgfältig entwickelten Kompositionen pflanzlicher Wirksubstanzen und Pflegestoffen die besonderen Bedürfnisse der Haut. Sie hilft, ihre natürliche Ausstrahlung und Schönheit zu schützen und zu bewahren.

What I say:

I am not a fan of this cream. The consistency is very thin and when putting the product on it slides on the skin, which is probably due to the fact that it has water as its main ingredient. It does not take long to be absorbed by the skin, so you can use it well before going to bed or even put on socks pretty much straight after application. I am not sure I can actually smell the sage, but the product has a very pleasant scent of oranges and is refreshing. Yet, I feel like the cream does not do much at all for me. This cream might be okay for someone that just wants a light cream in summer to refresh their feet, but it does not live up to its promise of reducing hard skin or being particularly nurturing.

#crueltyfree

What superdrug says:

Soothes, rehydrates and softens rough, dry and thickened skin.

Superdrug Cracked Heel Repair Cream is specially formulated with urea, a highly effective ingredient to rehydrate and help to repair rough, dry and cracked skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. The emollient properties of urea help to prevent moisture loss. Visible results in 3 days.

What I say:

I had this cream a couple of times before and I really like how it works for me. It does sink in quickly and makes my feet really smooth and soft. It doesn’t really smell like much at all. I have no complaints about how the product works and the only reason I don’t give it five stars are the ingredients used. I would prefer a product that is natural and works without using Paraffin. I was thinking that maybe Pure Chimp’s Body Cream, which I reviewed here, might be an alternative in the future.

Ingredients [Codecheck]:

Aqua, Urea, Paraffinum Liquidum, Paraffin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Steareth-2, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyglycerin, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Citric Acid, Limonene
