Miss Lily's 'Smarvellous Moisturising Cream is sure to care for your skin and give it a deep and lasting moisturising experience. Shea butter, the main carrier in this cream, is a superior active moisturiser known for its abundance of helpful ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, proteins and a unique fatty acid profile said to restore the skin's natural elasticity and enable it to absorb moisture from the air, keeping skin moisturised for longer. The shea butter is complemented by jojoba and camellia oils. Both are nourishing and hypo-allergenic and have deep absorption. Camellia oil, in particular is reputed to have highly restorative, rejuvenating, anti-aging and moisture-retaining qualities.
Rosemary derives its name from Latin, meaning “Dew of the Sea,” and its essential oil forms the basis of the soothing scent of this cream. It is also known historically as a powerful oil to moisturise dry skin. The essential oils of lavender and frankincense are also a must in skin care regimes for dry skin types. While lavender has a strong reputation for its antiseptic, anti-viral, anti-bacterial and decongestant properties (an all-round healing agent), frankincense is said to be particularly beneficial for dry and mature skin, with its reputed anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and astringent properties. Finally, we added a dab of Helichrysum italicum essential oil. This precious and powerful essential oil is highly valued by connoisseurs for its reputed extraordinary healing and rejuvenating powers.
If you are looking for a comprehensive day & night moisturiser combination, we recommend pairing Miss Lily’s ‘Smarvellous Cream for your nights with Miss Lily’s Swellegant Moisturising Cream for your mornings.
Although both are specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin, they do provide benefits for all skin types.
