Blab about Beauty Tuesday: U little beauty dinki-di day cream review


Product description: dinki-di day cream is a moisture replenishing cream which contains kakadu plum extract, the worlds richest source of natural vitamin C. Packed full with herbs, seed oils and flower extracts, and enriched with jojoba oil, this cream helps leave your skin feeling light and silky.

Product directions: Apply daily to clean skin. Leave to soak in before applying makeup.

My thoughts: I tried out this cream when a sample tube came with a magazine I purchased and fell in love with its nurturing natural organic ingredients. It's SLS and paraben free which means that I can use it on my sensitive prone skin daily. It has a calming and soothing herbal fragrance and it leaves my skin feeling soft and silky. Personally, I found this cream slightly heavy for a make-up base and day time wear. I much prefer it as a night time cream. For a 75ml tube, this cream will set you back around $25 which is a steal considering its organic properties. At the moment, I'm just using this cream 1-2 times a week after I exfoliate just to cut back on costs. The only thing I don't like about this cream is that it contains cetyl alcohol which can contribute to blocked pores in sensitive prone skin. So far, I haven't found this ingredient to be a problem and considering that it's low on the scale in terms of comedogenicity, I continue to use it because 1) the other ingredients are so beneficial, and, 2)  it's far better than using neutrogena which has loads of skin damaging chemicals.

Ingredients: aqua, chamomile flower extract, cetyl alcohol, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, stearic acid, glyceryl stearate, glycerin, jojoba oil, avocado oil, decyl olivate, tocopherol, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, lavender oil, sodium PCA, kakadu plum extract,bentonite, xanthan gum, squalane.

Size: 75mL RRP: $24.95

Would I purchase this product again?: Yes, unless I find something better.

My rating: 3.5/5
