Swisse Argan Facial Moisturiser Review

This is currently my favourite moisturiser. Another product I found, that is more on the 'natural' side that is gentle, yet nourishing.



Swisse Argan Facial Moisturiser is:
  • a natural, daily facial moisturiser
  • formulated for dry skin
  • part of Swisse's (mostly known for their vitamins) natural skincare range

Claims
  • enriched with certified organic argan oil, green tea and chamomile to protect and smooth the skin
  • skin will feel hydrated and nourished
  • contains Plantolin to calm redness and irritation
  • for everyday use
  • formulated to assist with dry skin
  • Swisse skin care promises that their range is 'free from toxic ingredients that may harm your body, well-being or the environment'

Benefits
  • absorbs quickly and easily
  • the ingredients are mainly of natural origin
  • is developed for dry skin but works well for my normal to slightly oily skin type
  • isn't greasy on application
  • works great under make-up
  • tube packaging, more hygienic than jar and easy to use
  • doesn't include the following:



Eco-friendly

Drawbacks
  • can become slightly greasier in the day, if too much is applied, but I have normal to slightly oily skin, and this is formulated for dry skin
  • argan oil is the only organic ingredient, and is further down in the list even though this is named 'argan moisturiser'. Instead grape seed oil is the second ingredient, so the formula contains more of this ingredient

Repurchase? Yes

Overall, this is an amazing, gentle moisturiser. It is easily absorbed and doesn't make my skin red, or break out. It works great under makeup, and has even aided in eliminating a pesky dry spot on my cheek.
