What Makes Your Skin Happy?

I started pampering my skin a little late in life. It was my face and hands that were the centre of my universe until I discovered that I was sorely neglecting the biggest organ of my body which is my skin! Thus in my quest to quench my skin's thirst, I have taken to slathering cream right after I jump out of the shower. The body cream I am so loving right now is Whipped Silk Advanced Body Moisturizer by St. Ives.

The smell of this reminds me of sweet flowers as well as being in an open grassy field on a sunny day! After using this for many months - as you can see it's a beast of a bottle, 12 oz in all! - I can happily report that my skin has become softer and less dry. My feet especially, were looking quite shabby and this cream has managed to transform them to their former glory! Soft and supple.

A plus point is that this cream is not at all greasy and disappears into the skin quickly without leaving an unpleasant sticky film. This product is formulated with Hydrolyzed Silk Protein to provide intense moisture which is so necessary for those who have dry skin. Below is the list of ingredients. I also like that this product is not tested on animals - that's a bonus.

When there is time, I put on the cream in the morning as well as at night after a bath. However, seeing that I am always rushing to get to work on time in the morning, this is pretty much a night-time ritual. It is really calming and soothing and to a great extent helps lock in the moisture right after I have taken a shower. I sleep in an air conditioned room which tends to dry out skin even more, so this is a great step to add to my nightly routine.

What caught my attention about this product was the fact that it is called 'Whipped Silk'! I love that term because it gives you the feel of luxuriousness and thats what sold me about this product. The other thing I was so enthralled with was how the product is dispensed. It does not have a small round hole on the cover but rather a star shaped one, which dispenses the cream very much like cake frosting! Sweet!
