It’s the first time I try something from AMARA Organics but I must say I’m impressed and pleased: the brand employs organic and natural products in order to provide a skincare line that doesn’t cause allergic reactions or hyper-sensitivity.
This cream has 2.5% of retinol, which is a quite high amount of retinol for a cream that is not a dermatological product. The pump functions so exactly the right amount comes out, and the product feels both luxuriously creamy and refreshingly light. Since this is a retinol-based cream and retinol is known to cause sun-sensitivity, make sure to use this cream only at night, or in case you don’t plan on going out during the day.
I’ve been applying daily for over a month now and even though my skin feels great I do not see the dark spots getting much lighter, but again it’s been only a month. I like the texture — not too thick nor too thin. This cream feels great, absorbs very well and leaves my skin hydrated and smooth when I wake up. I love the fact thats is Natural, Vegan, & Cruelty-Free – they use only natural, plant-based ingredients, with no parabens, no alcohol and they don’t test their cosmetics on animals. I also appreciate that the description of the product, with usage guidelines, accompanies the order so I know how to use it and what results to expect.
I really like the cream, however I’m not sure if that’s what I need right now. I don’t have big issues with my skin and still don’t have wrinkles. I think I will try other creams now but I will definitely come back to this on in the future!
