GIVEAWAY: Nourish Your Skin for only $5

Advertorial

Trying to balance my skin’s moisture is like walking a tight rope. Too much, it’ll become as oily as a wok. Too little, my cheeks start to flake and the T-zone overproduces sebum to compensate. Since returning from my Europe stint, for 2 weeks my skin has been trying to acclimatize without success.  Cheeks felt rough despite exfoliation at home.

So I got introduced to Himalaya nourishing cream. A family owned label since 1930 and now sold in 89 countries. As my parents are au-naturale fanatics, I checked its ingredients. Using 100% herbal actives of aloe vera and winter cherry, I decided to give it a try. Natural herbal actives are known to possess excellent moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, astringent and antioxidant effects. Winter cherry is an Indian herb (like our ginseng) that if consumed supports healthy brain function and manage daily stress. However, for skin uses, it is a stimulant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.


I did a quick search and Amazon reviews are very positive!
It is light and non-greasy with a wild flower scent. My facial therapist always gives me the same feedback; my skin is dry at the epidermal layer despite the surface being soft and smooth.
Upon application, my skin quickly absorbs Himalaya nourishing cream. After a few days of use, my skin (especially around the nose) stops flaking.

It is great for daily use, I have combination skin and Himalaya seem to balance it out well. The light cream is quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving a sticky after feel (important for our humid weather) yet providing enough moisture to keep it supple.

Best of all, it comes in 50ml and is a 2-in-1!Having traveled many weekends in Europe on Easyjet, who is SUPER STRICT with carry-on lugguage. Only ONE piece is allowed. Which means no handbags even.
This would be considered 3 pieces, I would be denied entry!

I have to be really minimal in packing so I can leave space for new shopping! If only I had Himalaya nourishing cream then! It is a 2-in-1 that can be used for the face and body! Gentle enough for the face, rich enough for the body. Especially in Europe where the air is dry, moisturizing the body is just as important as the face!

Even better is, at such an affordable price (from $5.90 at Watsons, Giant, Little & OG Department Store), it can also be used on the body! You won’t feel the pinch slathering dollops of Himalaya cream.

Remember my lesson learnt from a Russian strip club? Soft smooth skin is what makes us woman! 
Nothing in my house contains sodium lauryl sulphate, a chemical found in floor detergents, anymore. So am glad Himalaya makes the cut to join the ‘family’.

Beauty doesn’t need to come at a price afterall.
