We tend to stick to a good moisturizer when we find the one that works perfect for our skin. Moisturizer’s purpose in our skincare is to add hydration to the skin, lock in the moisture retained from previous skincare steps and strengthen skin’s barrier. And in addition to these basic effects of a moisturizer, it can also benefit the skin different ways; antioxidant care, deep skin nourishment, exfoliation, primer, and etc. The criteria of what makes a great moisturizer differs among individuals, but there are definitely common factors that we can all agree on when we define a ‘good’ cream.
We like a moisturizer when…
– it is sufficiently hydrating
– it effectively locks in moisture
– doesn’t feel too heavy on the skin after application
– it strengthens the barrier of the skin
– it leaves the skin hydrated all night or all day long
– it has the certain consistency (texture) that you prefer
– it can be used both in the morning and at night
– it doesn’t disrupt makeup application
– when it can do more than JUST HYDRATION
By Wishtrend offers two different type of creams. Both comes in a jar type and with just a glimpse, they might seem to be similar. However, they are two very different products with very different ingredients and different effects on the skin. Yes, both is served as a light gel-type cream and both will add fresh hydration onto the skin, and that’s a good start. Both will cross out the basic criterias that we look for when we choose moisturizer, but both will do more than just hydration. So, how are they different?
The By Wishtrend Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream is designed to be perfectly paired with vitamin c serum products. Vitamin C is known to be the ingredient that effectively exfoliates the skin with antioxidant and brightening care. Vitamin C itself will work on the skin alone, however when paired it with Vitamin E, it penetrates into the skin even more effectively, maximizing the effect. The Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream was specifically designed to be paired with By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum.
The reason being, Vitamin C and E supports each other’s antioxidant function. When applied together on the skin, it can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, brightening dull skin and strengthen skin’s defense against the impact of environmental assault. Vitamin C works optimally on the surface level, whereas vitamin E is oil-soluble so it goes deeper, so when used together, you’ll get the best of both worlds.
The Hibiscus 63 Cream was added to the Acid-duo line to help boost gentle exfoliation. The Hibiscus cream comes in a pink jar that will instantly remind you the bottle of Acid-duo 2% Mild Gel Cleanser.
The main ingredient is “hibiscus flower extract” and is also known as the ‘anti-aging’ plant. It is rich in antioxidants and contains gentle acids and that is why it makes it a great ingredient for GENTLE EXFOLIATION. The natural acids found in Hibiscus helps to purify the skin by removing dead skin cells and boost cell turnover.
