I’ve been trialling two summer moisturisers for a month now, to see which is my favourite. Shielo complexion moisturizer (US spelling, all the way from New York), and Citrus Clear Skin Repair Moisturizer.
Both are GREAT for the summer, but work in different ways. The Shielo Moisturizer is better at leveling the complexion and controlling oil, while the Citrus Clear Moisturizer is more moistening and for skin renewal.
Now that the summer is truly here, they have both been put through their paces. I have sensitive skin that is prone to spots, and when I stopped using my Lacura Clear Skin moisturiser, my spots did return, unfortunately.
However both were lovely to use, and definitely performed on the soothing and moisturising front but miles away on the pleasure front was the Citrus Clear Moisturizer. It is a truly indulgent smelling moisturiser that soothes not only the skin but the senses too. Used at night in a nice thick layer, it would help me drift off to sleep in a haze of sweet citrus fruit, a really comforting smell. I didn’t notice any reduction in wrinkles, though my skin tone has improved, and it was only used for a few weeks.
