It corrects skin imperfections such as redness, blemishes, and textural irregularities. The natural-origin hyaluronic acid moisturises, while the light texture leaves skin mattified, perfecting pores day-by-day. Such a promising moisturiser to try, looking forward to adding it to my skincare routine.

Moringa extract holds building clocks of life - calcium, potassium, Vitamin C, amino acids and Omega 3. According to Estee Lauder this is one of the most powerful anti-ageing ingredients they have ever discovered. The cream can be used both morning and night for a firm and radiant skin.
