Even though I don’t deal with icy weather living in Southern California, I still need to make sure my skin is properly moisturized during the winter months. Indoor heat and sometimes windy weather can leave skin feeling tight and parched. There is only so much water can do before some skincare intervention is needed, and lately MultiVitaSkin has been my go to moisturizer for the past 5 weeks.
MultiVitaSkin prides itself on a few key points. For one, it’s formulated with quality, all natural ingredients and includes a unique Omega 3-6-9 oil blend that nourishes the skin promoting a smoother, more youthful appearance. This cream also uses the powerhouse ingredient resveratrol, a known polyphenol, that acts as an antioxidant fighting the signs of again, along with a combination of vitamins to keep the skin healthy and supple. I can detect the scent of cocoa butter in the formula, which I like and enjoyed using when I was pregnant and had a gigantic belly to soothe. Now that I’m a nursing mama, clean ingredients are important to me because anything I am using will come into contact with her. I suspect this would have been a great belly lotion to have handy during those months when your skin is stretching and starts to itch.
The second thing that sets this brand apart is how affordable it is. It comes in a large no frills four ounce tub for just under $40. You guys, I’ve been using this moisturizing cream morning and night everyday for five weeks and I’ve only used about a quarter of the tub. I’ve also been applying it to the top of my hands each night and love how smooth they’ve been feeling since using this. I can expect this tub to last me anywhere from 4-5 months with the amount of usage I’m used to. And while the packaging is pretty basic, you can safely assume that less of what you spend is put into packaging and more into the ingredients and formulation of the actual product.
I’m always a bit leary of new moisturizers, especially from brands I am unfamiliar with, but MultiVitaSkin has impressed me thus far. Not only does it moisturize my skin well, my hands feel smoother, and it caused me no break outs which is always a concern with new products. There is no doubt that I am a sucker for pretty packaging, but if a product works well then really why am I worried about what the tub looks like. It works!
