GlamGal Reviews A'kin Rose de mai Anti-oxidant Day Creme

I came across this moisturizing cream called A'kin Rose de mai Anti-oxidant Day Creme on one of my usual jaunts during my lunch hour at work. Every day I wander about the store Winner's as it's the only retail shopping five minutes away from my work. I really shouldn't complain, Winner's always has something new or unique to peruse and I usually end up buying something! What I like is that they have products that you wouldn't normally find at the drug store or even a high end spa or salon. What I was drawn to with this cream was that it boasted how natural it was. I have been doing quite a bit of reading on skin anatomy and what  is so true is that we are what we eat, and if that is the case, we are what we put on our skin as well. I don't want to eat harsh chemicals or trans fats, preservatives or dyes, so why would I want that stuff seeping into my skin and inevitably my body and bloodstream?! I can't go back now! 
Here is what is so incredible about A'kin, it's free from sulfates, ethoxylated and petrochemical cleansers, parabens, propylene glycol, silicones, phthalates, DEA, mineral oils and artificial colours. All of their products are ingredient rich, vegan, 100% natural. A'kin's holistic philosophy is similar to the way the skin behaves naturally, their products are made using only the purest botanical (plant-based) ingredients. A'kin's formulations have high concentrations of pure active botanics, which make them powerful, rich and indulgent and ensure they deliver naturally brilliant results. I found the cream to be light on the face, not too light like there is nothing there, but just enough to feel it's on my face. My foundation goes on smoothly and I do use this cream with my BB as well. I like to give my face a good foundation before applying anything else, like a protector. I been using it now for 6 days and my skin feels quite soft. No irritation, no break outs and it doesn't feel greasy at all. I paid $14.99 for 50ml. I still use my smoothing cream with glycolic acid on top though!
The company is called The Purist Company and is Australian made and owned. The day cream I purchased boasts that it will improve the appearance of skin tone and elasticity. Akin Day Creme’s are rapidly absorbed, highly moisturising and enriched with the concentrated nature of Vitamins A, E, B5 and C and Alpha Lipoic acid, as well as Echium oil, which is rich in Omegas 9, 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. These powerful natural ingredients work in synergy to hydrate skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful complexion. Encapsulated in a 12-hour time release formula, it will provide all-day hydration.
What woman in their 20's don't realize, (not all, but some) is that you can prevent a lot of damage and hinder the ageing process by taking the right kind of care of your skin rather than waiting until the wrinkles and fine lines appear and then trying to get rid of them. Be proactive and when you are 40, you won't look it at all! 
I give this cream two thumbs up for being natural, organic and not too pricey!
