(🇹🇭 first comment) I’ve really been loving @lixirskin products (and also their packaging) lately, and I’m so glad they’re coming up with more products!
This is the Universal Emulsion – a multi-tasking moisturiser that works as a day cream, night cream, and a primer. You can use it on your face, eye contour, lips, neck and decollete, and also on your hands.
The Universal Emulsion contains squalene, shea butter, soybean oil, evening primrose oil and HA, all of which are all moisturising heroes. It has a rather light consistency that is super easy to spread around and to mix with other products, but it’s too light to the point where you can’t use it as a night cream. A lot of people seem to have a problem with the smell, but I think its very tolerable compared to my other products. 😂
I use this as both a day cream and night cream, especially when I want to mix in some active ingredients into my moisturiser: the Universal Emulsion blends seamlessly with the Lixir actives, and with stuff from other brands. I dispense the product onto my hands (along with whatever active ingredient I want to mix it with), warm the product up before lathering it on my face and massage it in gently.
I was surprised at how hydrating this was, given the consistency, and it really seals in the moisture throughout the day/night. It also gives the skin a slightly dewy look, giving it a healthy glow, which makes it perfect for daywear when you want to show off your skin. I think it does live up to its claims, and it really is versatile. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a no-fuss “anytime” moisturizer that actually works great on the skin!
