Claudia Louch specialises in holistically treating skin conditions from her Harley Street Clinic in London and has a tonne of industry credentials to her name. Hence a skincare line by her surely got me excited. With tonnes of skincare brands cropping up these days, not even a quarter of them are backed by industry professionals who actually know their science well so it always catches my eye when a brand is represented by a skincare brainbox like Claudia.
The face cream contains Mango Butter of course alongside other interesting ingredients such as Avocado Oil, Olive Oil, Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E and all that food-for-skin stuff. The thick, rich concoction is a godsend for dry skin that's usually itchy, uncomfortably taut after cleansing. It immediately forms a blanket of hydration over the skin, which stays put for hours to keep it undisturbed from environmental aggressors. No reapplication? I like!
If wrinkles are your major skin issue then it contains the oh so popular hyaluronic acid to lend you a helping hand in the skin plumping department. All this sounds too good to be true for use on combination-dehydrated skin types isn't it? Thankfully, as the product is non-comedogenic, it doesn't block pores inspite of it's thick, luxe texture. The formula is a win-win situation for my skin that's oily during the day and parched for moisture during the evenings even in the warmer months.
The face cream feels slightly warm on application and very slightly tacky on the skin for the first few minutes, after which the 'freshly applied' feel of it it gradually disappears. Claudia Louch's Hydrating Mango Face Cream is my evening essential as I wouldn't waste the beaut by applying a layer of make-up on top of it.
Retailing at £61.50, you get every penny worth of opulence that you'd desire out of a high end skincare product. From the absolutely stunning looking, square black bottle with a sleek pump dispenser to an easy to love formula, it doesn't disappoint.
