Winter is terrible for my skin, and I feel like the ill effects are worsening the older I get. I’m talking flaky under eyes, random dry patches on my face and absolute havoc being wreaked upon my poor lips. Unpleasant, to say the least. So, as the cold weather clings on for dear life, I’ve been doing my best to combat the negative impact it’s been having on my skin, by trying to add as much nourishment and moisture into my routine as possible.
This is where Conscious Skincare’s Enrich Day Moisturiser* comes in. I’d been using my beloved Super Greens Serum from Tropic Skin Care as my main facial moisturiser but, having found my skin craving an extra layer of protection, decided to add a new card to my hand.
Conscious Skincare make a good first impression. The packaging is minimal and chic, with simple labelling in muted colours and styles. The packaging itself – for this particular product, a glass jar with an aluminium lid – is recyclable, and Conscious Skincare are very open about where they currently stand in terms of sustainability in this respect, as well as musing on what they’d like to achieve in the future. The eco-friendliness of product packaging is something I have been paying much closer attention to nowadays, so this certainly reassured me.

The Enrich Day Moisturiser for normal skin is unlike most other face creams I’ve used in terms of its texture. The best way I can describe it is mousse-like; it’s akin to a whipped eyeshadow, or those dreadful foundations we all loved as teens. But as soon as the product makes contact with your face, it begins – under the gentle guidance of your fingers – to melt into the skin, leaving it feeling utterly nourished and soft.
After prepping my skin post-shower and applying my Super Greens serum, I massage Conscious Skincare’s enriching cream into my cheeks, nose and chin, skimping a little on the forehead area as I’ve found the oil from the product leaves my fringe a little greasy. The natural, mostly organic ingredients work to replenish the skin, even having an antioxidant effect. Avocado oil and shea butter help to soften and refresh, with lavender and geranium oils boosting circulation. My makeup glides easily on top of the moisturising layer, with my skin feeling supple and protected underneath.
At £25 for 60ml, this is more than I would normally pay for a day cream. That said, the organic ingredients, the freshness, and the general sustainable and ethical nature of the product certainly add a lot of value. While my skin might not need this enhanced nourishment during the warmer months, I would definitely consider investing in Conscious Skincare’s Enrich Day Moisturiser again next winter.
