Skin care has become my dirty little secret of late. There used to be a time when I just slapped some moisturiser on my face (sometimes I didn’t even bother with it…shocking!) and I was done. Now my pile of remedies has grown, and I can not seem to hide this addiction any longer.
When I was asked by Chemist a Direct to choose a few products to review, I of course went for a snoop around the skincare section. I saw the Regener8 Day Cream*, and it sounded exactly my cup of tea. It’s an advanced day cream that’s designed to improve the elasticity of skin, so pretty much helping to snap it back into place after laughing, and keep it there. It also helps to nourish, soften and condition skin, and claims to rejuvenate the eye area by up to 6 years in just 4 weeks.
The formula is something that I thought I would struggle with as it’s quite thick for a day cream, so I was pleasantly surprised to find you really only need a small amount and that it sinks in straight away.
The cream contains camellia oil, pomegranate oil, almond oil and Protolea to help put back moisture and essential fatty acids back into the skin. You might be sitting there thinking, “ok that’s a lot of oil right there”, but the formula really isn’t oily at all – it’s rich, but not greasy.
I’ve been using is for a few weeks now, and I’ve really found it so effectively with the dry skin I’ve been suffering with on my face. It defiantly helps to soften and treat the skin, rather than just temporarily smooth it. Using a thin layer of it also acts as a surprisingly good base for foundation.
The claim I was most interested in testing out was the eye rejuvenation one. Decreasing the look of eye ageing in 4 weeks? Who doesn’t want that! I have hereditary dark circles, it comes from my maternal grandad’s side of the family and along with that I also suffer with a dry, tired under eye area.
As I’ve mentioned, the cream is thick but light weight enough that it moisturises my under eye area, but still keeps the sensitive skin cared for. The formula has definitely helped to soften the skin there, so much so that I’ve been using it over the top of my night cream as an under eye cream before bed.
Overall it’s really nice cream, it may be a tad thick for day wear for some skin types, however it would make an ideal night cream if you prefer to use something a bit lighter at night.
