Cailyn Bounce It is one of the new breed of ‘aqua memory’ moisturisers – what this means is that the formula looks (and feels!) like the most perfectly baked egg custard with the same wobble and bounce to it. When you remove some of the ‘custard’, after a few minutes, the cream will reform itself to look as though you never touched it at all. It’s interesting – fascinating, in fact – but won’t make a jot of difference to how it behaves on your skin.
In fact, if anything, the custard or jelly feel of it makes it more difficult to apply to the face, but it’s fun – and different. But, because of the high water content, it’s cooling and refreshing on the skin and leaves a film that feels supple and lightly oil based (although as far as I can tell there are no ‘natural’ ingredients in this and water is its first listing). I would suggest that it’s not a moisturiser for deeply dehydrated skin and more for skin in moderate need of moisture, although it does contain peptides. I loved using it but feel I would need something more powerful for my own personal use.
I’m absolutely a fan of all these new textures – jelly and custard are so appealing right now and if you have always minded about face cream textures being too weighty, it’s a perfect adventure into new grounds. It’s £40 and you can find it HERE.
I have a couple of other Cailyn products waiting to be tested – I like this brand a lot for being forward thinking on product and textures and haven’t been disappointed by anything so far.
