Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for September 2010


I believe a gentle and effective skin care is not necessary natural & organic, meantime I also concern of any potential harmful and skin-irritating ingredients in skin care. Personally I think natural skin care is feeling-good and healthy approach but many non 100% natural products have been working well for me too.


Beside face oil, this Renew Antioxidant Moisturizing Cream is my first genuine natural moisturizer. According to Renew, it contains essential oils to nourish and revive, natural emollients to protect and soften, and antioxidants to lock in moisture. Perfect for all skin types.



I absolutely love its non-heavy texture and the powdery smooth feeling when it had fully dried on skin. It neither contributes blackhead nor causes breakout when using an appropriate amount. I used the cream when I had few small hormonal pimples and it didn’t exacerbate my hormonal breakout that they subsided by themselves in few days. Even so, I would suggest you to avoid using this cream on the breakout area because it would “ripen” any newly-developed acne, possibly delay the healing process.



I was surprised it wasn’t moisturizing enough for dry skin condition, eventhough it contained many nourishing botanic oils. When I re-applied the cream before bedtime for extra moisture, it broke me out on next day. According to Renew, instead of applying heavily, it should be incorporated with their Rose hip oil for dry skin. Of course, I got to try the method and it worked most of the times, not everytime. I guess my skin needs some balancing between water and oil.


Interestingly, it neither calms nor soothes the irritated skin condition but it’s also non-irritating and comfortable to wear for irritated sensitive skin. I had tried this for consecutive two days when my sensitive skin was “capricious”, the sensitized skin still felt uncomfortable and I’ve seen no visible improvement in two days, compared to Dr.CiLabo’s Aqua Collagen Gel Super Sensitive and Keihls Cantella Skin Recovery Salve that capable to calm down the “irascible” yet vulnerable skin in a day.



To be honest, I didn’t notice remarkably skin improvement in the interim but, it’s indeed pleasant to use. For my skin, this is perfect for day wear or in humid weather, its natural scent smells relaxing too. Concerning about irritated or dry skin, I would rather go for another specific product for effective soothing. It lasts for 4 months usage by using twice a day, RM79.90/120ml is a fairly good price considering the natural ingredient list.
