Let me start by saying, I was pleasantly surprised by the packaging of 100% Pure’s Coffee Cherry Sun Damage Corrective Cream ($35).
I prefer tubes to pots, as I can never find a spatula when I need one, but I’ve never seen a tube with a built-in pump before. What a great idea! The transparent cover actually stayed on tight whilst in the draw.
I’ve been using the cream only at night, as it doesn’t contain sunscreen. It has a soft vanilla fragrance—which I love—and is really rich without feeling greasy on the skin.
I love it around my eyes, as so often before bed, eye creams tend to "migrate" into my eyes even when I think I have left them enough space.
The ingredients are very interesting; number one being organic aloe vera juice, followed by rosehip and pomegranite oils. The more unusual ones being extracts of coffee arabica seed / leaf and coffee cherry seed/leaf extract. Lots of herbals and vitamin C too.
It was a pleasure to wake up each morning to soft smooth skin and no puffy eyes!
The bonus being the brown spots on the side of my face (in spite of 30+ every day) are definitely lighter.
Fact is, I loved this cream so much that one week in I placed an order for the 100% Pure Jasmine Green Tea Tonique (to compliment the corrective cream) through TIA. The toner is also a unique product as it is almost like a serum in application, not runny like most skin fresheners. It says to apply with cotton pad but not wanting to waste it I just poured a little on my hands and quickly onto my face.
In the mornings before sunscreen this was all I needed; it was so moisturizing on its own.
I look forward to buying more of this company's products as they really are a pleasure to use and I feel my skin is looking all the better from using them. It is so nice to know there are no nasties in the ingredients.
