Pai Macademia & Rose Moisturiser

Natalie Portman is a beautiful woman, Fact.

Natalie Portman is a huge fan of Pai skincare, Fact.

I know this because Natalie Potman said so in Harpers Bazaar, Fact.

So you can imagine how excited I was when I was sent a bottle of Pai Macademia & Rose Moisturiser to try from Apostle.

What they say ..........

Formulated to provide an intensive hydration boost for dry and mature skin.  This ultra-nourishing cream is rich in Palmitic Acid, an oil produced by the skin, which depletes as we get older.  Use as a Day or Night Cream to hydrate, smooth and protect your skin.

Macademia:  This nourishing nut oil keeps skin soft and supple.  It's rich in Palmitic Acid, an oil produced by the skin, which depletes as we get older.

Rose:  This wonder flower helps skin to retain moisture.  It's rejuvenating and restorative properties make it particularly beneficial to dry or weather-beaten skin.


What I say ........

First of all the packaging, I can't tell you how thrilled I was that this product came in a glass bottle, I just love products that are in glass bottles, especially when they come with a pump dispenser too for hygiene purposes.

Secondly the smell, oh my goodness the smell is amazing.  I would recommend that you dispense one pump of product onto your hand, warm the product in your palms and before applying to your face cup your hands over your nose and inhale deeply.  The aroma is absolutely divine.

Now onto the important part.  I am drawn more and more to natural products as I get older and found this moisturiser an absolute joy to use.  Pai develops skincare especially for people with sensitive, highly reactive and allergy prone skin.  As soon as this product hits the skin you just know it's doing your skin good, there is no stinging or tingling, there is just instant soothing and calming.

I try out lots of skin products on a regular basis for review purposes and have found that over time my skin has become more and more sensitive and reactive to certain ingredients.  What I have found with Pai is that no matter what state my skin is in, Pai takes it right back to where I want it to be within a few days.  By that I mean that if I have had a reaction to something I have been using then I will stop using that product and use Pai, within a few days my skin is back to normal.  I would recommend Pai to anyone with very sensitive skin and also to anyone looking for a natural skincare range.

If it's good enough for Natalie Portman it's good enough for me.  Fact.
