The Weekend Post #14: Chambor Hydra Essential Day Moisturizer

The Chambor Hydra Essential Day Moisturizer – it’s no surprise is it that this has cropped up in a post of its own, is it? I have been using this moisturizer for about month now and I think it’s fair to say that this will be a staple in my skincare routine from this day forward. There seems to be quite a buzz about this product at the moment, and from my experience with it so far I’ll be joining that gang too.

I’d never used a moisturizer like this before. It’s a white cream with a slightly gel-like consistency that you apply a thick layer of as the last step in your skincare routine before you go to work and in 5 mins. your skin has quite literally ‘drunk it up’! In basic terms it’s an intense moisture replacement moisturizer that quenches moisture reserves and contains a host of anti-dehydration ingredients.

It’s designed for normal and oily skin types. Now my skin certainly isn’t dry, however my normal/oily complexion isn’t as greasy as it once was and I’ve noticed a few flaky bits appearing around my eyebrow and forehead area so thought that the Chambor Hydra Essential Day Moisturizer would come in handy for treating that. I use this around twice a week in the mornings and I have to say I couldn’t be more impressed. I use about a pea-size amount and when I reach work my skin is practically glowing. In fact I account that fact that I have been going lighter on the BB cream these days heavily down to this. My skin feels and looks juicier, the dry patches are gone and I’m one happy bunny. Not only are the results amazing but it smells great too, refreshing and floral. Even just writing about it makes me want to use it now!

So tomorrow I will be happily slathering this all over my face! Another great thing is that a 100 ml bottle of this costs Rs. 755 which is good value for such a high-quality and effective skincare product, plus it will last you a while. Have any of you guys tried it? What do you think? Or do you have another favourite day moisturizer?
