Christmas started early for me. I have been sent some awesome goodies to review. Today’s post is about the Plantae Vanilla Bean Day Cream.
I have never heard of Plantae before it turned up in my letter box, so I did some investigating. Plantae is a New Zealand company who’s whole entire range is certified organic. They have several collections, Flower Power, Lush Leaves and Berry Bliss.
Melissa Officinalis (Lemon Balm) Distillate, Carthamus Tincorius (Safflower) Oleosomes, Water (Aqua), Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Beeswax, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Glycerin, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Corylus Avellana (Hazel) Seed Oil, Bentonite , Xanthan Gum, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Commiphora Myrrha ( Myrrh) Resin Extract, Jasminum Grandiflorum (Jasmine) Flower Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape Seed) Extract, Vanilla Planifolia (Vanilla) Fruit Extract
Available in a variety of stores in both New Zealand and Australia.
I have been using the Plantae for over four weeks now, both day and night. I have noticed over that time that my skin appears to be in better shape than before. It feels softer and looks less dull. I have very sensitive skin and this does not irritate it at all, if anything it helps to soothe it. I love how easily it goes on and is soaked up by my skin. I also find that after washing my face even with just warm water, that I do not get that horrible, dry, thirsty feeling I used to.
At first I was unsure about the smell, it has a strong vanilla and floral smell to it. However it fades after you have put it on and I got used to it very quickly. It does not bother me at all now.
The container holds 50g and you barely need to use any on your skin. After using it both day and night, there is still a lot left.
I am really bad at remembering to use face cream, but I find I am more inclined to use this cream because it makes my skin feel good instantly. I have been trying a lot harder to use face creams that benefits my skin now that I am a bit older. Having such sensitive skin means I need to find the perfect one, which can be really hard. This day cream seems to the trick for me, I am now on the hunt for a night cream.
Would I repurchase?
I was sent this product to review, so I did not pay for it the first time round. The price of $48.90 NZD scared me a little bit at first, I felt lush spending $32 NZD on my usual face cream, but this is better and bigger. Now after using it for four weeks I would repurchase it. Now that I am a bit older I find that ISuch noticeable differences is worth the price tag for me.
I have the Bergamot Orange Cleansing Milk on trial at the moment, so I will let you know how that goes.
Have you tried Plantae before? How much do you spend on your face care?
Thanks for stopping by!
