Gingerbread in the morning

So mornings are getting darker and colder and even though you don't realise it yet, you're skin is already suffering from this change in temperature. What better way is there than to treat your skin with a facial cream that smells like gingerbread? For real, I've had trouble refraining myself from taking a spoon and just dig in te jar. This Elemental Facial Barrier Cream by Aesop is already my favourite winter product. And winter hasn't even begun just yet.

If you didn't know Aesop yet, you're either new to my blog or haven't been paying attention much of late. I have been raging on about their products for quite a while now. Aesop is this Australian brand which uses mainly plant-based ingredients or laboratory-made ingredients and doesn't test on animals. So yes, most of their range is vegan, but let's support them and put some pressure to drop the beeswax as well.

This Elemental Facial Barrier Cream contains three main ingredients: Copper PCA, Bisabolol and Ginger Root. The Copper PCA will help your skin stay firm and works anti-aging, which is perfect since I've now officially reached the appropriate age for using anti-aging skincare. Did you know that most anti-aging products contain collageen, which is derived from fish? No, well this one is a perfect vegan substitute. On top of that the Copper PCA will also reduce inflammation which is perfect for my rosacea prone skin.
Bisabolol is derived from chamomile and takes care of your dry skin and prevents flaking, necessary during the colder months. Bisabolol also makes sure that all the other ingredients of this facial cream are absorbed better by your skin.
Ginger root is a miracle product. Drink it in your tea, use it in your bath or find it as a main ingredient in this cream. Ginger root prevents damage from free radicals, thus preserving the youthful appearance of the skin. It also improves elasticity, making the skin more firm and youthful. Plus, it tackles blemishes.
Aesop's Elemental Facial Barrier Cream is a very thick, nourishing cream. Plus, you really need a very small amount on a daily base. So this little jar will take you a long way down the road.

Available at Fin Du Jour in Ghent.
