Have you ever get hesitant to love a skincare product whole heartedly and find no faults about it?
Well, I do. Its always either the scent, the texture, the effect... just something that is not right about a great product and I wish it caters more to my preference.
Fret no more as a new kid is in town as you can customise the heck (excuse the language) out of it.
Introducing Bottega Verde La Mia Crema, translated, My Cream.
La Mia Crema is a "Personalised" Facial Cream that contains SPF 15 which has anti-aging properties. They also have active ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid to trap water as well as maintain skin moisture and Plant Sugar Complex to hydrate as well as boosts skin's barrier functions.
As claimed by Bottega Verde:
"Not all skins are equal. A cream which works for a specific type of skin is not necessarily adaptable to a different one. According to factors such as hydration, surface lipids and age, every type of skin needs specific products because the necessities can change from one person to another. Spots, wrinkles, relaxed skin are just some of the problems that may appear.
As a result, it is necessary to use suitable products in order to prevent the physiology of the skin from changing and to target problem areas. The identification of the basic features of the skin such the hydration level and skin type allows Bottega Verde to create a skincare treatment with personalized guidelines for the individual."
There are 3 steps to your customisation:
1. Skin analysis - The SA will first use an analyser to measure your skin moisture level and determine its intensity level before categorising you into your relevant stage.
2. Q&A - There will be a simple array of questions to determine your skin type
3. Scent - And then you get to the fun part which is choosing the scent you like.
That's it. Easy peasy.
About a week or so, your cream will be customised and shipped from Italy and ready to be collected in store.
As this is a cream with SPF, I use it during day time. Lo and Behold, I am totally smitten by my "Cindy Khor" La Mia Cream. First off, the scent is awesomely good (maybe due to the fact that I chose it? ;p). And then the consistency is light weight and easily absorbs into the skin despite it being anti-aging (you know, the presumption that all anti-aging creams are thick and gooey or is it just me?). I was also shocked at how well my foundation stayed on my skin throughout the day without clinging to my dry patches which earns many bonus points from me.
Conclusion, GO BUY IT NOW!!! I am serious. It is that good. If you really want me to nit pick, I guess it would be the waiting time to get this tub of awesomeness and the packaging can be improved to suit the more fanciful tastebuds.
Retailing at $89.90 for 50ml, do head over to Suntec City L2-454 (North Wing) and Punggol Waterway Point L1-56 to take a look.
Huge thanks to Adjectif Co and Bottega Verde for your generosity. ^_^
