After using the Dawn Lorraine Wild Berry Nutrient Creme ($54) for about a month I found it to be an all around good natural day cream. I was pleasantly surprised to find the texture incredibly light and fluffy — a nice change from some other 100% natural products that can be quite heavy or waxy.
The cream has a pleasant fruity, almost cherry-like, smell and sinks right in, leaving skin with a healthy glow. The first ingredient is aloe so it’s wonderful as an after sun soother with additional skincare benefits.
However, I did have to apply additional cream when I used it at night as I found it not to be hydrating enough for me. I think if you have normal to combination skin this would be a great all around basic day cream, however if you’re skin is as severely dehydrated as mine is, this probably won’t be moisturizing enough.
I do take issue with the packaging. While the glass jar with the tin lid is lovely to look at in my bathroom cabinet, it doesn’t hold up well once it’s open, and the potency of the active ingredients starts to degrade.
If you’re looking for a reasonably priced all natural day cream, or a light and soothing after sun cream this just might be a nice addition to your skincare regimen. For me though, with skin over 40 I need something that hydrates more and has more heavy hitting anti-aging ingredients in it.
