The winter weather can be harsh on your skin, so its important to take extra care at this time of year to nourish and replenish.

The Esthederm Excellage Cream is a luxury product, you can tell from the quality and texture of the cream and the smell is just divine. The latest from the Institut team is aimed at the more mature skin, 50+. Suitable for dry as well as oily skin types, this cream aims to restore cellular communication between different layers of the skin, increasing its overall health. The formulation re-densifies the skin while boosting its natural defenses, therefore improving its resistance against external aggressions. It also features camellia oil and vitamin PP, which provides further nourishment to the skin, ensuring its comfort and well-being.

This cream has a lovely floral fragrance and creamy thick texture. It is recommended you use this morning and night, but you also have to follow the extra steps shown in the leaflet to maximise the effect. This includes pinching the various zones on your face and neck and then placing your hands on your face and exhaling, repeating several times. The cream glides onto your skin and it left my face feeling smoother and firmer. It is one of the more expensive on the market, but it does what is says on the tin, and you get what you pay for.
