Aurelia Probiotic Skincare // Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser



When I was in the throws of wanting to treat ones self during recovery, I took myself to Space NK and splurged. I wanted a moisturiser that would feel luxe and do a wonderful job at keeping my skin plump and hydrated.

So I choose Aurelia Skincare and their Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser to be my splurge. The British brand is focused on  combining bio-organic botanical formulations with probiotic technology to manage inflammation, a main cause of skin ageing. The cream is medium in texture and suitable of all skin types, including sensitive.

It has been the only time that I have spent £52 on a face cream and being honest, it is lovely. The blend of Jasmine, Mandarin, Plumeria and Tuberose (my fave scent, Organic Pharmacy has perfume that is on my wish list!) makes you feel like you are at the end of a spa treatment. It is also one of the most heavenly scented face creams I have used. I was apprehensive that it might irritate my skin, but I found the the scent did not linger too long after application and my skin was kept hydrated throughout the day.
This was probably down to this cream being a power house of divine botanicals:

BAOBAB - Omega rich ‘super fruit’
HIBISCUS - Antioxidant rich ‘nature’s Botox
ALOE VERA - Soothes & softens the skin
MONGONGO OIL - Vit E and fatty acids  for restructuring & regenerating
KIGELIA AFRICANA - Firming properties

My main criteria for my skincare is to re-hydrate my dry skin (mainly due to hormonal tamoxifen side effects) and maintain moisture levels, to be kind to my sensitive skin and have a focus of Anti-Aging (anti-aging is not a word I like, I just want to age well and my skin to have a good texture).

The only thing I noticed was that by about 5pm a few tiny dry patches would start to appear around my chin and mouth. This was even with a facial oil underneath the cream. The dryness is the bane of my life at the moment!

Now, would I buy this again? I'm not sure, perhaps only due to the price. It is very dear and as I am currently between jobs I would not purchase it again right now. I would certainly love to receive it as a gift for birthdays or Christmas. I still want to try other face creams, it has not left me thinking I've found the one. But it is a lovely, yummy one, all the same! If you are looking for a green beauty luxe, that will feel like a daily treat. This is a great brand to try.
