I was very interested to try this Alva Sanddorn anti ageing cream from MyPure as recently my skin has been feeling very dry and breaking out into red rough patches. I think this is due to the winter weather we have had recently. Being in my forties I am also starting to see fine lines appearing and wanted to see if this cream would make any difference to my skin.
This is described as an intensive day cream which apparently when used in studies showed the moisture level of the skin increased by 76% after 4 weeks use, while the depth of fine lines and wrinkles was reduced by 29.3%. As with all MyPure products it is sulphate free, paraben free and phtalate free. Would it live up to these claims?
The cream comes in a nice box inside which is a nice sized tube. I opened my tube to find my first surprise. This cream is orange! I was expecting it to be white like all normal moisturisers. I then tried it on my skin. It has a lovely creamy feel and a little bit goes a long way. You do not need to use a lot to get a lovely moisturized feeling. It absorbs easily into the skin and you are not left with a sticky feeling as you can be with some creams. The product has a lovely scent as well, very light and not overpowering.
Does it work? Yes it does. After two days use the red patches on my skin had disappeared and my skin felt much softer. After a weeks use my skin felt loads more moisturized and more youthful. The fine lines on my forehead did look reduced and I am very pleased with this product. After using this my skin is ready for the summer.
