Thai spice for your skin

borealis_0122

THE STORY:

Stick with me on this – yes it does use Thai ingredients and what you really get the most is the lemongrass. But it’s not like ladelling your dinner on your face, it’s like being on a sun soaked beach in Thailand. And it lasts.

I tested the Cedarwood & Lemongrass Daily Defence Moisturiser for Men (50ml) by Borealis Natural Skincare whilst on holiday in Sitges. It’s zingy, zesty and if you like lemongrass, you will love this. It’s hydrating enough without leaving the skin claggy or overly oily.

THE SCIENCE:

It’s a rich, hydrating blend containing cold pressed Rosehip Oil, which is quite well-known for its excellent skin repairing properties, Hempseed and Red Raspberry Seed Oil can help nourish and provide some natural protection from UVA/UVB sun damage.

Infused with woody Cedarwood, uplifting Lemongrass and citrus Orange that is ever so subtly complemented with musky Patchouli. I’m not a huge fan of Patchouli – but didn’t really notice it.

No parabens, SLS, petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, preservatives or additives.

THE VERDICT:

Nice for summer skin hydration.
