I always love getting a jumpstart on the holidays so I can avoid the stress of last-minute gifts and actually enjoy family and food! We’ve scoured all the eye-catching beauty offerings this season, and I’m obsessed with Eve Lom’s Restorative Moisture Ritual which packages up healthy and beautiful skin in a festive box. Full size products are included to really give skin a chance to respond and benefit from a consistent regimen. This is the perfect luxe gift for the one who deserves some pampering with truly skin-changing products. My skin is a happy testament to the wonders of Eve Lom’s moisture ritual, as I’ve found myself absentmindedly touching my face and startled back to reality with newfound firm and youthful skin!
The cleanser is a cult favorite for good reason: the mini-ritual of applying the soft herbal paste opens pores and provides a deep and gentle excavation of impurities leaving skin healthy and relaxed. A soft muslin cloth is included in the kit, which is used with warm water to remove the cleanser after it’s applied to dry skin, simultaneously opening pores and lifting impurities. I’m usually a fan of splash and dash face washes, but having to pamper skin to exfoliate and then close pores is deeply calming for me, and good for the soul. My face feels incredibly clean, supple and refreshed without leaving a filmy feeling. The moisture mask is a unique departure from the norm; this jelly-like formula slathers on comfortably with a slight tingle. On my second try, I applied a slightly thinner layer so I wouldn’t have to remove excess, and left it overnight. The next morning, I was delighted with the youthful look and feel of healthy, moisturized skin! The Time Retreat Intensive Night Cream is a nightly treat for the skin following cleansing. It’s light enough to moisturize oily skin, but nourishes with encapsulated retinol, a stabilized form of Vitamin A to effectively reduce wrinkles. Indigo seed extract fights pollution and other stressors, while shea butter, squalene, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera moisturize.
