I read that this ‘Anti-pollution’ moisturiser fluid “combats OCN pollution (oxygen, carbon, nitrogen) while recharging the skin with energy and radiance. Suffocated and dull skin is abolished in the place of a fresh-faced complexion with restored vitality and luminosity”.
Needless to say, I had high expectations. The consistency is quite runny (which is not necessarily a bad thing). I’ve been using it as a base underneath my regular face cream (which I was told to do). I don’t think the fluid itself would be rich enough for my skin during the winter months, however more than sufficient enough throughout the summer I would say. I love anything with SPF – as I am getting older, these things really matter (I only wish I was more conscious about it sooner – especially during my years of living in Barcelona!).
As I’ve been using the fluid as a combination with another moisturiser, it’s hard to notice it’s real effects. I can’t really fault it, as the consistency works great as a ‘primer’ underneath my moisturiser and it’s always left my skin hydrated. The fact that is ‘combats pollution’ is another bonus – and I can’t help notice that my skin is much brighter and smoother, versus last year. So to conclude, it works – but to get it’s full effects, I would use it during the summer months. A perfect, lightweight moisturizer for a city girl.
