Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skin Care Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturizer
In my 20s, I never gave much consideration to finding the perfect moisturizer for my skin. In fact, I can’t really recall even using moisturizer back then. But now that I’m in my late 30s and starting an intensive retinoid therapy to heal hormonal cystic acne, I realized that moisturizer is so vital to healthy skin. Since I have begun regularly using moisturizer, I’ve noticed a dramatic increase in my skin’s quality. Most notable changes came upon the discovery of Peter Thomas Roth’s Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturizer.
This moisturizer is an actual dream. When you apply it to your skin, you can literally feel your skin drink it in. It is light and airy, and when applied, you almost feel a melting, cooling effect. Packed with 30% Hyaluronic Acid, it can provide up to 72 hours of intensive hydration without feeling oily, greasy, or heavy. The Hyaluronic Cloud Cream moisturizer contains three molecular sizes of Hyaluronic Acid to retain up to 1,000 times its weight in water from moisture in the atmosphere. It also contains ceramides to help retain moisture, as well as elderberry, an antioxidant-rich berry to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
While packed with all of these skin-boosting ingredients, the Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturizer never feels heavy on my skin. By the end of the day, my skin still feels soft and supple, and well hydrated. To me, this moisturizer is a dream because of how revitalizing it is when applied, my skin doesn’t feel clogged or oily, and my skin stays hydrated all day long.
It is important to note that this Moisturizer has one flaw, and that it does not contain any SPF. So be sure to use a separate SPF to protect your skin from UV rays. Despite that, I still would give this moisturizer a five-star rating! This moisturizer is one of several in the brand’s Water Drench line of products, so be sure to check out the other products as well!
