Hope everyone’s been having a good day!
Was walking around during my lunch break today and I saw that BIG W has some great discounts on a variety of beauty products at the moment, including most of the Garnier product range (body lotions were 1/2 price!); Australis and Palmer’s were also discounted. I was extremely tempted to buy some stuff but I’ve already got heaps (but can you ever have enough? LOL! ;-)).
Coles supermarkets also have their latest free beauty magazine out today, which has some handy how tos in it but does focus only on products Coles sells! What I do like about it, however, is that it’s not bad for a free read and it also caters to guys with articles focusing on products specifically aimed at men.
Okie dokies, what am I reviewing today? Another facial moisturiser!
You might have read my previous Thalgo review, in which I found the moisturiser was very good but did leave my skin a teeny bit dry. Well, I fed this back to my beauty therapist and she switched to Thalgo’s Collagen Cream: Hydration – First Wrinkles. Here are my thoughts (aside from the fact that when I read “first wrinkles” on the jar and on the free sample I was given to take home, it kinda hit home that I’m certainly getting older *cue mini moment of panic!!!!* ;-))…
Price range: Again I’ve seen this range from $40.00 ish AUD online through to much more at beauty salons.
Where can I buy it? Certified Thalgo stockists (usually beauty salons) and online.
Like the Energising Vitality Cream, this moisturiser has a natural and neutral scent which does not irritate my skin. The consistency is again somewhere between a cream and lotion, and it rapidly absorbs into the skin. A small amount goes a long way, which I always appreciate with pricey products! When testing the sample I again used it at night and took note of my skin’s texture in the morning. Woohoo there was no excess oil, and no dryness at all! I think I have found the perfect moisturiser for me!!!!!!
(I should point out that all the Thalgo stuff I have tested at night rather than in the day because it has not contained any SPF. I’m a bit cheeky as my beauty therapist recommends I not use SPF products on my face at all due to my skin type and its risk of breakouts at times, but I cannot resist – I’m afraid of looking like a lizard otherwise as the Aussie sun is extremely strong!)
As this product mentions “first wrinkles” this one is for those in their late 20s through to probably early 30s, but don’t take my word for it as this time my beauty therapist did not tell me much about it! At the time of writing this I could not see a lot of detail on the Thalgo website either which is disappointing.
In my view I would strongly recommend this one for those who are at the stage where they may be starting to get a fine line here or there and want a moisturiser that does not leave the skin oily nor underhydrate.
