OUT: alverde – Zellaktiv Nachtpflege Blauer Hibiskus (£5.95/50ml)
What alverde says:
The recipe with the active formula stimulates cell metabolism and promotes the vitality of skin cells. The DNA is secured and plant peptides help to strengthen the skin and protect against harmful environmental influences such as UV-induced skin aging, oxidative stress and free radicals. Valuable anti-aging ingredients reduce the incidence and intensity of wrinkles – for a more youthful complexion. The formula contained in the Day Moist® increases the concentration of natural moisture in the skin and acts as a moisturizer with instant effect. Organic flavonoids provide a fresh, vital appearance.
What I say:
I really liked this product, it did all I wanted from it: It moisturised my skin over night and as I really liked the scent I found it very soothing to apply before going to bed. Although the cream feels very thick while applying and also is very rich, it doesn’t make my face shiny. Not that it would be a big deal over night, but still I prefer the feeling of nourished skin without feeling greasy. If you are looking for an affordable night cream in the drug store, I highly recommend you have a look at alverde’s hibiscus cream.

What I say:
First of all, I didn’t notice that this is actually a skincare range by Weleda for babies. 🙂 However, as you see above, even in their description it says it is suitable for adult skin as well, so all good. I thought I try this product during winter as it sounds very moisturising and I tend to get really dry skin in the winter month. So far I can say that it definitely delivers on this aspect. What I am not overly keen on is the scent of the product. I am still trying to figure out what it reminds me of, in any case I am not a fan. Luckily, the smell doesn’t linger on the skin once applied, so I can still use the cream.
