Dream Face Cream: The Updated Formula Is Here

29 March 2018 / by Alexandra Nodes

Our new, dermatologically tested face and eye cream contains ingredients proven to boost skins health and appearance, increasing elasticity, reducing fine lines and blemishes and hydrating skin profoundly and long-lastingly. It’s all natural, vegan and cruelty-free and it smells amazing.

Ever since I was young, I have been slightly obsessed with face creams. Potions and lotions and unctuous delights. Formulating our new, updated Face and Eye Cream has been a real pleasure; incorporating hero ingredients and cutting-edge bio-technology and finding the perfect balance to create a hydrating, brightening cream that’s lush, delicately scented and incredibly powerful. We’ve incorporated new ingredients, and listened to your feedback to update our formula and make it even better.


There are so many reasons to love our cream, but here are my top five:


1. It’s packed with botanical, all-natural goodness that really works for you.

In collaboration with our lab in Barcelona, I picked out ingredients that are proven to have a powerful effect on skin and combine them to produce a cream that works extra hard.

Powerfully beneficial botanicals like Crocus bulb extract (Crocus crysanthus), Japanese Rice Bran Oil (Oryza Sativa), Patchouli (Pogosternon Cablin), Damascus Rose Oil (Rosa Damascena) and so many more essential oils, plant and herb extracts go into this little black jar that it feels like a real greatest hits powerhouse of botanical skincare!


2. We’ve updated it with even more bio-technology.

We’re always working to find new, innovative bio-tech ingredients that push the boundaries of natural skincare. In this latest update to our Face and Eye cream formula, we have added even more cutting-edge natural ingredients shown to work in scientific studies

We’ve added a new sodium hyaluronate to our blend, which specifically enhances immediate anti-aging effects by improving general epidermic health and having an instant lifting effect, leaving skin smoother, and helps skin retain maximum moisture.

We’ve also added a natural sugar compound, which moisturizes while fighting bacteria and enhancing skin’s natural antimicrobial levels.

3. There’s no nonsense.

In Spanish we say, lo que ves, es lo que hay. What you see is what you get. We don’t use any harsh chemicals or non-natural ingredients in our products, and we don’t use any fillers like petroleum, or toxic preservatives or colours. What you see (and feel, and smell) is what you get, and it’s all goodness, and it’s all been considered, tested and chosen for a reason.

Our cream gives you deep, deep hydration. It helps your skin retain water by using natural ingredients like hyaluronic acid and especially chosen plant extracts. Meanwhile, active botanicals go to work making skin smoother, softer and suppler. It makes your skin healthier at a cellular level, and more beautiful looking. That’s all.


4. It’s made with kimchi! (And who doesn't love kimchi?!)

If you keep up with innovations in skincare, you might have started hearing about the use of fermentation in cutting-edge practices. Fermentation has long been a staple of health foods, but recent studies have shown it had major skin benefits too. We use a fermented radish kimchi extract that is a totally natural, organic, probiotic preservative and peptide, which inhibits microbial growth and makes sure the botanicals in your cream stay fresh without using synthetic preservatives.

We also use a fermented bamboo and pumpkin extract, lactobacillus, which breaks down protein barriers on the skin’s surface to gently exfoliate skin cells and leave skin smoother, healthier and younger-looking. And if that’s not tasty enough, the Cocos Nucifera (coconut) in our preservative adds its own wonderful hydrating properties!


5. It’s so much more than just a really great cream.

When we create our products, the aim is not only to provide truly excellent all-natural skincare, but a multi-sensory experience. Apart from the beautiful glass jar made from miron glass which blocks harmful UV rays to protect natural ingredients – that your cream comes in, with it’s minimal design, we keep working to make sure the cream itself delivers on different levels.

That’s why we’ve added Hydrogenated Lecithin, a totally natural emollient and texture agent extracted from vegetable elements like sunflower phospholipid, which has an incredibly velvety texture. It melts at body temperature and really makes applying our cream a multi-sensory pleasure.


People tell me all the time that they love the scent of our cream – subtle and uninvasive, botanical without being too floral. The scent is a blend of carefully chosen essential oils that balanced rich florals with earthy tones like patchouli. Massaging it into your skin is an aromatherapeutic pleasure to be savoured and enjoyed!
