Creme du Loch Anti-Aging Moisturizer
I am so excited to be bringing this Instagram famous anti-aging cream. Creme du Loch is a U.K. based indie skincare brand and currently features this moisturizer as its crown jewel. It retails for approximately $55, and they recently launched on Amazon for the U.S. market.
I am a huge fan of this moisturizer, and I can see why it is so popular. It is a beautiful balmy texture that melts into a soft cream that you can press into your skin as the last step in your skincare routine. It’s definitely a multi-purpose cream, and I can typically just go in after toner and be done for the night (if I choose). I like to layer this over a Vitamin C serum, for a brightening and anti—aging effect. You only need a tiny bit for your face and neck.
Is this a dupe for Creme de la Mer? No, it is so much better. I’ve used La Mer on several occasions, other than its occlusive properties, I thought it was really underwhelming and hated the perfumy fragrance. This one has a similar texture, but is way better in terms of
efficacy. It really does improve skin texture, and gives me a beautiful glow resulting from simply healthy skin. I don’t have wrinkles so I can’t speak to that product claim, but it leaves the skin feeling very nice. I love the luxe gift packaging, this would be perfect for gifting for Mother’s Day.
I am not fan of the fragrance (parfum is listed as an ingredient) though. It claims to be artificial fragrance free, but this does have a scent. It wont stop me from purchasing when I run out.
The brand provided the following information about parfum:
"Parfum is the industry official term for an aroma stabiliser. It doesn’t have to contain any scent itself (ours doesn’t) it stabilisers the aromas of the cream so that they don’t mingle and change. The scent of our crème is 100% natural and is from the cucumber seed oil and Rosehip oil which are used for their amazing skin health benefits"
