My skin has been freaking out lately and I’m sure it has something to do with wearing a mask every day at work for 8 hours a day. I’m trying to be really kind to my skin to make up for all of that by doing face masks, pore strips, using my facial steamer etc.
I was sent the Codex Beauty Bia Day Cream recently and I’ve been using it for a week. I don’t think it’s the reason my skin has been breaking out – I’m almost positive it’s from wearing a mask all day because my breakout is around my chin/jawline and lower cheeks. This day cream has been really pleasant so far. It’s very lightweight and has a lemon-y scent which is refreshing and bright which is perfect for my early mornings.
Here’s how the company describes the cream:
“WHAT IT IS
This daily facial moisturizer combines the revitalizing effects of calendula and the hydrating properties of sodium hyaluronate to moisturize, provide intense nourishment and reduce irritation and redness. EWG Verified, Ecocert Cosmos Organic, Leaping Bunny, Vegan, PEFC, Carbon Footprint Standard, efficacy tested.1.7 oz. Made in Ireland.
WHAT IT DOES
A cream with a light but nourishing texture. Calendula infused oil & water improve skin distensibility, firmness & viscoelasticity. Serrated wrack helps improve skin suppleness and elasticity by moisturizing and improving the skin barrier. Sodium hyaluronate (2%) boosts the skin’s ability to absorb moisture and results in smoother, softer skin. Sweet almond oil softens the skin. Green mandarin oil tones and helps balance oil production in the skin.“
So far I’m liking the product. I do wish that there was more product considering the high price tag, but I do like the scent of it to really wake me up in the morning.
