“ Brand: Helena Rubinstein / Type: Face Cream / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Repairs, Recovers „
I have a family history of skin problems, including dry skin and eczema, and on my face I have a few different problems with oily and dry skin. I get very dry skin around my eyebrows and on my nose, as well as sometimes a little bit of a dry skin problem on my forehead. A friend of mine suggested that I use Helena Rubinstein Skin Life Repair Nurturing Recovery Cream, as this was something she had used to help her with the same kind of skin problem.
She gave me a small tub of the cream, and I got right into using it, as the dry skin does bug me sometimes. I applied a small amount of the cream to the dry areas of my face, after cleansing my skin, and I was impressed with how smooth the cream was to the touch, and also how quickly it sinked into my skin. The cream felt very soft and smooth to touch, with a nice, thick and creamy texture to it. I assumed it would take a long time to soak in due to the thickness of the cream, but it soaked in really quickly. It did not leave a greasy film on the skin after use, which is something I have found of other products I have used.
I noticed that after use, my skin instantly looked and felt better. I was very impressed with this, as normally, there is no difference to my skin after first using a new product. The dry skin was still a problem, but less of one and after using this every day for about a week, there was no sign of a dry skin problem. I was really amazed and happy at how well and how quickly this has sorted the problem, and I now only have to use this 2 or 3 times a week to keep the problem at bay.
You should find that you hardly need to use any cream, as it really does go a long way, spreads really easily and not a lot is needed to get a good result from this cream. My friend gave me the tub of this about 4 months ago, and I am not even half way through it yet! I find that there is not much of a scent to this cream, which I think is what adds to it being good for those with sensitive skin, as there is no harsh fragrances to damage the delicate skin.
I had not heard of Helena Rubenstein before I was given this cream, and upon searching the internet to find where to buy it and for how much, I actually had quite a shock and I feel I owe my friend an Amazing Birthday present this year. The cheapest I could find this cream for was on Amazon and it costs £103!!!!!!!! Even though I find this cream works really well, and is in the best creams I have ever used, I do not think I would pay that much for it, even if I had that much money spare!
I do want to recommend this cream, but I am only going to recommend it to those who have the cash to flash on something like this. For much lower prices, you can get other creams that will give you the same results, but they will take a little bit longer to deliver them. I think that the wait would be worth the saving! There are many websites that sell this cream, but the cheapest I could find it was on Amazon.
For the actual workings of the cream, I give Helena Rubinstein Skin Life Repair Nurturing Recovery Cream a 5 out of 5 stars, but because of the hefty, hefty price tag, I am having to take a star off of this, and give it 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend this, but only to the wealthy among us.
