Skincare – Bottega Verde CollagenCODE day and night cream
Recently I have been having a lot of luck with natural ingredients-based skincare products. Since I was running out of my daily moisturizers I thought why not go the natural route this time and see how it goes, because I have noticed a lot has changed, since the last time I tried “natural active ingredients based” products, and disliked.
About the brand Bottega Verde
Bottega Verde was founded in Italy, between Florence and Sienain Pienza: a small Tuscan town listed by UNESCO on account of its natural,
artistic and cultural heritage.
This home to tradition, which nestles amongst hills, vineyards and wheat fields,
was opened in 1972 as a small herbalist shop with a passion for artisan
production and sale of Cosmetics based on natural active ingredients.
Bottega Verde CollagenCODE
Is it just me or whenever you hear the word Collagen you think of snails ? eekhh! As much as I love skincare products, somethings I just can’t handle. The snail-collagen is something I can’t try. But Collagen is the most important component in keeping your skin healthy, glowing and youthful. Bottega Verde CollagenCODE is plant based collagen that helps to restore the collagen in your skin which prevents signs of aging and enhances the elasticity of your skin. In result, your skin looks glow-y and beautiful.
Bottega Verde CollagenCODE Day Cream
Usually I share the website description and then share my thoughts, but the description on the website is WAYY too long. If you want in depth details on the product head over to their website. For me, I find it to be very light weight and fast absorbing cream, and those are the qualities I look for in a daily moisturizer. For me heavy and thick moisturizers are a big NO ! I can’t use them, they make me feel uncomfortable, it feels like a sticky layer of some sort is siting on my skin, can’t handle it ! The fact that this cream is super light weight and absorbs really fast is a big PLUS for me. (Scent:Top notes: water fruits, ozone notes, lotus flower and water lily; middle notes: white orchid, mulberry blossom, musk rose, lily of the valley and jasmine; base notes: white sandalwood, orris root and white musks.) I find that it has a very very mild relaxing scent. I can’t put my finger on what kind, it’s so mild, which I love. It smells fresh, not too sweet, not too floral, just in between. I think this cream is perfect to wear underneath makeup.
Bottega Verde CollagenCODE Night Cream
Generally most night creams are thicker and heavier than day creams because they’re more potent. Again with me I like light weight products, that’s why I love Lancome Visionnaire advanced multi-correcting cream. Bottega Verde CollagenCODE night cream has same scent as the day cream, but stronger and nothing over-empowering. It’s mild too, but stronger than the day cream(you know what I mean right?) I apply a generous layer at night and it feels very luxe and moisturizing. Once it absorbs, it feels like nothing on the skin but in the morning skin looks and feels very refreshed and smooth.
So far I’m absolutely loving everything about these two products. If you’re looking for more natural ingredients based skincare products definitely check these out.
I hope you find this post helpful.
