A few years ago, Germaine de Capuccini was a real presence in the UK skin care market – then for some reason it drifted off but has now appeared again! The brand is in fact, fifty years old. There’s a lot about it that feels out of step with the more modern market – it’s hugely focussed on anti-ageing offering promises that literally make my eyes roll, but I feel like it’s for a very specific clientelle who love to focus on that aspect of skin care. Which is fine – there is a place for it. What I can certainly say is that the products are beautiful quality. I’ve opted to re-introduce myself to the brand with the Germaine de Capuccini Intense Comfort Mask but I also remember rating their sun care products highly back in the day.
So, the Germaine de Capuccini Intense Comfort Mask performed to perfection – not only was it light (if a little fluid) on my skin, but I didn’t need a night cream afterwards (I tried it out at around 7pm one evening) and nor did I wake up feeling as though I’d not moisturised. It totally did give a big moisture hit that my skin loved. Little wonder, because as I have only just discovered (I often try without checking ingredients first) it contains three weights of Hyaluronic. Hyaluronic always seems like the answer to everything!
Unless your skin is showing dry distress, you probably don’t need this – and certainly not if you’re under 25 – but for anyone who just wants to feel that elasticity and flexibility back in their complexion, it’s a lovely skin pamper. I’d also consider it if I’d overdone things in the sun or weather extremes (highly unlikely, given my heat-seeking tendencies!). It’s pricy at £44.65 but you don’t need to slather it on. A little goes a good way. You can find it HERE.
