The mission and ethos of this brand is amazing. “For every purchase, Soma Ayurvedic donates a set of school supplies to deserving children in orphanages and a hygiene kit to women who don’t have access to these necessities.”
So rich and thick- great for colder months or dry skin. If you have VERY dry skin and are OK with scent, this is one of the richest creams I've used yet.
The scent can be overpowering
It didn't follow through on the anti-aging promises (it won on hydration)
Would I buy this again/for the first time (since, again, it was gifted)? Yes, I would!
A LITTLE “LIGHT READING” FOR YA? CHECK OUT THE FULL INGREDIENTS LIST + EWG RATINGS:
I pull these directly from the brand’s or reputable retailers’ website. You’d be shocked at how many product pages have misspellings so if you see one, you’ll know why! I didn’t catch it. Neither did the retailer. What’s missing: percentage of ingredient used & the amount of evidence/data backing up each number rating from EWG.org. You can search the EWG SkinDeep database to find the data available behind each rating. You can find out the percentage of the ingredient used by asking the brand. Here we go!
