The Decleor Hydrating Light Cream Is The Light Moisturiser You Need This Summer!
I want to start this article by stating that summer is here. But you probably know that from the rivulets of sweat going down your back, your hair having a field day with frizz, and the several sunscreen tubes that you are going through. So yeah, point is… summer is here. For me, that spells a complete overhaul of my skincare routine. Fine, that sounds a tad too fancy. But hey, I do replace a few products.
My rich, winter moisturisers are replaced by lighter ones, I switch my thick emulsions for easy serums, and pull out all stops when it comes to sunscreens. So when this Decleor Harmonie Calm Soothing Milky Cream landed on my desk, I whooped for joy. Yes, I am all about the drama.
I wanted to be quite a detective, so I pulled out my magnifying glass, my dark glasses and trench coat. Too far? Okay, but I did put an honest effort because I read the whole pamphlet that comes with the product. At least, the English part. I would’ve read the French bit, but I don’t own a beret and also can’t read French.
Okay, so this is a cream that is quite, for the lack of a better word, liquid-y. The consistency is lovely, and the product while requiring a bit of work, completely disappears into the skin. I suggest going with small quantities till you find that perfect amount. Experimentation is key. It feels light, and works wonderfully to keep the skin hydrated. It’s not greasy, so you won’t look like you can make fries on your face. It is lightly scented, but you can definitely smell it when you put it on. If you are sensitive to fragrances, you might want to test it out first.
I have only used this for a short while, but I have high hopes. As I do from my life, but that hasn’t gone too well, so I hope this is an entirely different experience actually. You can always trust me to turn to my sleuth side before I finally deliver a verdict.
