One of the best things about being a blogger is that you get the chance to try out tons of different products from companies all over the world. However, being that I’m a New Yorker I love to support companies that are based in the US. Enter Amarte , a California based skincare company that that was developed with the cooperation of the Bio Regional Innovation Center in Seowon University in South Korea. I got my international love and the opportunity to review a bottle of their Wonder Cream moisturizer that they sent to me.
Company Description- ‘Savor your skin with the lasting benefits of Wonder Cream. The nutrient-loaded formula with ActiveElements lightens freckles and sunspots while the therapeutic properties of this rich lovingly exfoliate for a supple, translucent complexion worth adoring’.
Amarte Moisturizer Review
As soon as the Amarte moisturizer was applied to my face, it worked to hydrate and nourish my skin leaving me with a healthy looking glow. The cream is on the thicker side but soaks in quickly without leaving behind residue. Within seconds my skin simply felt incredibly smooth and the look and feel of it lasted throughout most of the day. By 5PM the benefits were gone, however this is to be expected because the directions recommend that you use it twice daily.
One of the reasons that I was drawn to this moisturizer is because it claims to reduce freckles. I never had to worry about the little brown dots until I was well into my thirties and my skin became more sensitive over the summer months. All of a sudden the little dots would appear and I couldn’t get rid of them for months and months. Eugh! Although I do my best to stay out of the sun and wear sunscreen during the warmer months a few of them always find a way to sneak up on me. As promised, I did notice that my skin cleared up slowly over a six week period of using the Amarte moisturizer. By the end of eight weeks the freckles were almost completely gone and I began to feel like my old self again.
One thing that I can’t stand in a facial moisturizer is a heavy fragrance. I don’t want to walk around smelling like roses (or any other kind of flower for that matter) throughout the day because it’s too distracting. The Amarte moisturizer has a very soft fragrance and actually reminds me of a lighter Ponds or Lancome scent. I hardly notice that it’s there and that’s just how I like it.
In regards to the thickness of the cream, it doesn’t bother me at all and is ideal for the cooler fall and winter seasons. The only times that it feels heavy are during a workout or when I’m at work and have my head directly over one of the microscopes which come with some serious lighting and get hot after being on for a long period of time. For now, I’ll be using this cream for the next couple of months because my skin needs the protection from the elements, however once Spring is in the air I’ll be on to something lighter.
Finally, the some of the main ingredients listed because what they make the product with is one of the most important factors to me and can either make me or break me as a fan.
- Argan kernel oil
- Pearl powder
- Mastic oil
- Nutmeg kernel extract
- Clove seed extract
- Eucalyptus alba leaf extract
- Grapefruit seed extract
- Caviar extract
Let’s face it they had me at Argan and caviar but the other ingredients sound pretty good too.
