Apivita Wine Elixir Day Cream spf 15 review
The Wine Elixir range is one of Apivita's skincare ranges designed to support ageing skin. Apivita is a Greek brand that uses a high percentage of natural ingredients and avoids silicones, mineral oil, parabens, propylene glycol and phthalates. I've bought and liked Apivita products before, so I was happy to try some other products when I was given the opportunity to be sent them for review.
This cream is too rich for my skin except in extremely cold weather, and resulted in a few clogged pores on my chin and forehead (a sure sign of a cream that's too rich for my skin) when I was using it in milder weather before Christmas. When the weather turned colder and windier over the last couple of weeks I pulled it out again and have had no clogged pores, so I'd say it's best for really cold weather or very dry skin. My skin isn't mature enough to need this on a regular basis and does better with the Apivita First Line Day Cream I bought last year. If your skin is much drier or has more ageing concerns, this would be a good day cream to try from an excellent skincare brand. Like the First Line Day Cream, the Wine Elixir Cream does have quite a perfumed smell from the essential oil blend used in it.
