BeautySpace: Why Ultra-Rich Cream impresses

BeautySpace: Why Ultra-Rich Cream impresses

It’s no secret that we love sealing our skin with hydrating ingredients – especially now that winter is just around the corner and the cold weather threatens to disturb our skin’s balance. 

Luckily, our long-awaited Ultra-Rich Cream has launched just in time to nourish our skin with strengthening ingredients that will keep our skin barrier strong and resilient during winter and beyond. 

So when beauty specialist Anette Kristine Poulsen chose to highlight this power product in her article for her Danish beauty platform, BeautySpace, we, of course, were thankful to see this wonderworker get the acknowledgement it deserves. So, let’s delve into the reasons she loves it just as much as we do!

Why BeautySpace loves Ultra-Rich Cream

When highlighting the benefits of Ultra-Rich Cream, the combo of active ingredients that power the formula is always worth a mention. In her article, Anette emphasizes that the cream is especially interesting due to its replenishing ingredients (natural hyaluronic acid) and moisture sealing ingredients (e.g. shea butter) as well as barrier-strengthening fatty acids, a generous dose of niacinamide, glow-enhancing vitamin C, and elasticity-boosting vitamin E.

With this enriching mix of high-performance ingredients, it’s not difficult to understand why the cream deserves a spot in every caring skincare repertoire – if you ask us. So, let’s break down what these ingredient terms cover.

With Ultra-Rich Cream as a part of your daily regimen, you help to strengthen your skin’s barrier. But what does this really mean? Your skin barrier is essential for both your skin’s health and appearance – it performs as a shield, protecting you against extraneous threats like infection ad pollution.

That’s where we plead our gratitude toward the content of protective fatty acids and multipurpose niacinamide that helps keep this shield strong and resilient towards these factors. But the benefits don’t stop there.

While the addition of natural hyaluronic acid delivers hydration deep within the skin layers and throughout, the sealing ingredients help prevent it from evaporating throughout the day. The result? Silky soft skin that’s here to stay. And how could we not include two of our favorite vitamins? Vitamin E and C help minimize redness while also protecting the skin from damage and premature signs of aging caused by external elements. What’s not to like? 

Anette includes a wonderful addition in her praise of this product, you shouldn’t take for granted; that the cream works wonders under makeup. And we couldn't agree more! Shortly put, Ultra-Rich Cream makes for the perfect glowy base to leave your skin with a healthy look and a finish that will compliment your makeup. This is mainly thanks to the cream’s formula which ensures it won’t leave a greasy finish but rather sink deep into the skin’s layers to leave a satin-like result. 

In her article, Anette recommends pairing the cream with a hydrating serum – a wonderful advice, especially for those who wish for maximum hydration. We also love to apply our Intense Hydra Serum beneath our Ultra-Rich Cream to pamper our skin with extra hydration – an especially indulging treat if your skin generally has a tendency to dryness.

We’d like to sincerely thank Anette for the wonderful and valuable review and acknowledgment of our newest member of our family of woods_ products.  

Why we love Ultra-Rich Cream

Honestly, where should we begin? We can start by highlighting that we love this cream because of its versatility – it can literally be used by any skin type. With its anti-irritating and fragrance-free formula, the cream is actually formulated with the most sensitive of skin types in mind. Thanks to the enriching combo of ingredients, the cream will even work in your skin to minimize symptoms of redness and irritation.

Another, equally important, reason is that Ultra-Rich Cream is a product that keeps its promise. A mantra that goes for all wood_ products. With Ultra-Rich Cream, this means both immediate results in the form of a healthy, smoothing effect upon application, but also long-lasting results due to its firming and strengthening properties.

With an oil value of 29%, its low pH-level, and a low molecular composition, our Ultra-Rich Cream is also a true super hero product for skin with eczema, rosacea, or perioral dermatitis.

Meanwhile, the cream won’t only strengthen the skin’s barrier, but also calm an already weakened barrier to counteract negative effects and damage within the skin.

And if you thought that Ultra-Rich Cream may be too rich for oily and breakout-prone skin types, we’re here to tell you otherwise. Actually, you can confidently reach for Ultra-Rich Cream, even if your skin type falls under these categories. This is because the cream is formulated with completely non-comedogenic oils, meaning it will be just as beneficial for oily skin types that long for a well-deserved moisture boost. In other words: No clogged pores here!

And with its lightweight finish, you’ll never have to worry about greasy texture or a shiny appearance.
