Although the original intent of this post was to review Ceramidin, I really didn’t like it – I love a balm and I love an oil but the resulting oil-from-balm effect of this was just to sit on top of my skin. It also madly interacted with other products producing those squirls that are so annoying. That’s possibly due to the non-water soluble trimethicone listed in amongst some decent if inexpensive ingredients such as brazil nut oil, sweet almond and safflower oil. If you’ve got very dry skin (particularly weather induced) and you’re not sensitive (it contains patchouli and geranium oils), it might be the right thing for an overnight reboot, but it just wasn’t the right thing for me. Unlike Water Drop which was perfect!
Annoyingly in the most un-photogenic packaging of all time, I know I raved about this the first time it was here and it’s just as good now it’s back again. In format, it’s a loose cream that’s very cooling and hydrating – it’s the only product I know of where water droplets appear on the skin after application.. I know it’s a clever-formula-trick but I am not quite sure how the separation of water and oils occurs. It’s very satisfying anyway, whatever it is and really only a trick to watch happen on your arm because it’s not nearly as apparent on the face. Apart from antioxidants and green tea extracts for brightening, the cream also has centella and hyaluronic acid in the mix – my skin feels silkier and softer straight away and it’s a good day moisturiser with a twist as long as you don’t need a huge surge. I think £27 isn’t unreasonable for this product (HERE) and it’s fairly free from nasties.
