Lotion vs. Cream
Finding The Perfect Match

For me, skincare is an adventure. I love experimenting with different textures and sensations—trying everything and enjoying it all. But I wasn't always this way. For many years, I preferred the lightness of face lotions and harboured a negative view of face creams, believing they were too thick. My opinions were shaped by the budget skincare products I used in my late teens and early adulthood. It dawned on me that we often don't really know why we choose certain products. Are our choices based on knowledge, or are they influenced by outdated perceptions? This question became clear to me as started to specialise in skincare, had I understood the key differences between a face cream and a face lotion, I could have resolved much of my own personal skincare issues.

LET YOUR SKIN TYPE DECIDE

Maintaining a healthy lipid barrier is essential for healthy, happy skin. Our lipid barrier is composed of complex fatty acids, triglycerides, ceramides, cholesterol, and various other lipids. It acts as a protective shield, similar to the ozone layer, guarding our skin from the external environment. 

Our skin naturally produces lipids that help to replenish lipids lost to the environment and cleansing routines. However not everyone produces lipids equally, our own lipid production is affected by many things including hormones, medications, climate, diet and lifestyle.

Our lipid-based formulations supplement the bodies own natural lipid process to help replenish, balance and restore the skins lipid barrier. uncomfortable and fragile.

WHAT IS A FACE LOTION

Our Face Hydrator is a lotion that has a lightweight consistency, easily spreads across the skin, and rapidly absorbs, leaving a non-greasy after feel. It is lightly imbued with botanical oils to help replenish essential lipids and designed to deliver excellent hydration and actives to calm and nourish the skin.

The face hydrator is great for those that produce sufficient lipids naturally. These include normal, combination, acne-prone, and oily skin types.

WHAT IS A FACE CREAM

Our Water Bomb Face Cream is a rich consistency, providing intensive moisturising and protective properties. Formulated with a comprehensive blend of lipids, hydration, and active ingredients such as vitamins and antioxidants to address various skin concerns, including dryness, aging, and sensitivity.

Those that don't produce sufficient lipids will often prefer face creams as they are rich in lipids to help replenish and support the skin barrier. These include dry, dehydrated, combination, and sensitive skin types.
