For the past week I have been trying out the Ioma Paris 7 Days Youthful Moisture Cream for day and night. I received this in a beauty box and I had never heard of this brand before. After a couple of days of using it I decided to look it up and see how much it was and I think it’s fairly expensive at £7.20 for 7 little 1ml pods but it was ‘free’ so I’m glad I’ve tried it.
These are designed to keep your face moisturised for both the day and night but I have been applying this in the evening after I’ve done my skincare routine. The pods themselves look really small but I was surprised by how much product there is inside; there’s more than enough to use on my face and neck and some is left over.
The cream itself doesn’t have a strong scent which is nice because I don’t like things on my face that are too strong-smelling in the evening. The texture is fairly greasy and I found it does need rubbing in a bit more than some of my other moisturisers but I think that’s probably because it’s designed to last through the night and day.
After using this for a few days my skin does feel a lot more hydrated but I do have to keep to skincare routine or my face does get too greasy. I would say this is the only downside because when I don’t have time I don’t always do a full routine so I probably would only use this if I was staying away for a few days. It’s ideal that they are in little pods if you’re going away for a week or even to use over a couple of days because you can tear off each of the pods.
Over all I don’t think I would repurchase these for everyday use but I have enjoyed using these no-mess, individual, highly moisturising creams.
Have you used any IOMA products?
