I formulated this day face cream to make it both moisturizing and nourishing.

It can therefore be used after a face washing, shower or after swimming.

It has a creamy texture, penetrates well the skin, has a mild coco smell.

Its actives should reduce the imperfections, thanks to an anti-bacterial property. The salicilic acid additionally helps the skin cells renewal, helping to reduce the blackheads, and providing a clean complexion.
