Don't you just love trying out new moisturisers and creams? I absolutely love it. I have my staple products I use, but I'm always keen to try out new creams. I was recently sent this cream from I COLONIALI to try out. It is an Italian brand that I have seen around but I have never tried any of their products.
The I COLONIALI Rich Silky Cream is as the name suggests, a rich cream that is easily abosrbed into your skin. It contains shea butter which we all know has great nourishing properties. Although the cream is rich and thick, it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy or clammy. Once it has been absorbed into your skin, it leaves it feeling silky smooth.
Although I enjoyed using the cream, I had to reapply it during the day as I felt my skin became dry. Now I don't suffer from dry skin, but I'm used to using very rich moisturisers that leave a glossy finish to my skin which this didn't. I do wish it was slighter richer for me. Once I reapplied it, my skin did feel smooth and silky. If you're looking for a cream that is rich but not greasy, then this is a good one to try out. It's perfumed and I would describe the smell similar to eucalyptus; a hint of a herbal and minty scent.
A point to note is that it does contain parabens if this is something you look out for.
The cream retails at £22.50 for 150ml which is expensive. Although it is a good cream, I do think it is overpriced. You can pick this up at your local M&S beauty counter or at a number of beauty supply stores online.
What do you think of the cream? Have you tried any products from the I COLONIALI range?
Thanks for reading!!
