I've been using the Snowberry Bright Defence Day Cream No.2 daily for just over a month, so I thought it was time to update you on how I've been getting on with it. The Bright Defence skincare range contains anti-ageing, brightening and hydrating ingredients. The Snowberry line is expensive but they're dedicated to sourcing the best natural and sustainable ingredients and refuse to include any known or potential irritants, yet they still produce skincare that can compete in the efficacy stakes. I think this goes a long way in justifying the price tag. The packaging has been well thought out too from the clean lines, to the pump dispenser not to mention the cheery artwork by Rob Ryan.
Having taken an updated picture of my pigmentation spot, I'm not sure it has decreased in size or colour over the last month but I find that overall my skin looks brighter and more even in tone. I certainly find that the pigmentation just below my eyebrow looks more prominent in comparison to areas that I am able to 'treat'. My only disappointment is that I wish that I had chosen the No.3 formulation for dry skin as I find that no.2 doesn't offer me enough hydration. I think my skin sits somewhere between combination and dry and after the Shiseido cream, which felt a bit too rich for daytime, I obviously erred on the side of caution and ended up making the wrong choice.
The Bright Defence Day Cream is quite a light fluid, it spreads easily but takes a little while to sink in. It feels very soothing and fresh on the skin which makes it really pleasing to apply in the morning. It has quite a surprising colour, it's almost flesh coloured and I think is probably a result of the fermented black tea. The cream has a slight scent to it which I find hard to describe. Although perfume is listed in the ingredients, I think most of the scent comes from the essential oils.
I've enjoyed using this cream even though it wasn't quite the right formula for me. I do like the Snowberry ethos very much. Although I won't replace like for like once this has finished, I am likely to buy either the Bright Defence Day Cream in no.3 or the Night Cream in future. Visionary Beauty recently posted a tempting review of the Night Cream which you can read here.
