Applying Cream - Shall We Slather or Scrimp?
I gave a voucher to my niece for Christmas. It was good for one skin cream (or serum) and one personalized skin tonic.
Happily, she enjoyed the gift, and immediately reminded me of a sample I had given her a while back of my Multi-Vitamin Intense Care Cream, saying this was her product of choice for the 'cream/serum'.
She ScrimpsThis took me a bit by surprise, because I developed the multivitamin cream to deeply hydrate mature and dry skin, and my niece (who has beautifully healthy, youthful and normal skin) was so pleased with the sample I had given her, she had been scrimping – using the smallest amount at a time – to make it last as long as possible.
I SlatherNow, when I am testing a product on myself, I will try varying amounts to get an idea of how little or how much the skin will readily absorb. But when I am not testing – and just using a product, I tend to apply a relatively generous amount.
All right, I'll be perfectly honest – I slather it on.
