Lanolin is one of those oldie-but-goodie hero ingredients that’s having a moment again, globally (for good reason). It is the only animal oil that can be obtained with zero harm to the animal—in this case, a sheep.
Out of all oils, lanolin is most like our own sebum, which makes it highly compatible, absorbable and gentle on our skin. Remember: dry skin means the skin is lacking sebum, so this ingredient helps combat dry skin effectively. This rich yet quickly absorbing cream is ideal for those with insufficient lipid levels on the skin (read: again, this refers to those with dry skin), those concerned about loss of elasticity, dull skin, and dry skin that cracks or itches. In addition to lanolin, this deeply hydrating moisturizer features a complex of 8 berries, all chock-full of Vitamin C, which brightens, and skin-health-boosting antioxidants. It's also a great choice for those who either want to begin anti-aging preventative measures, or who already use an anti-aging regimen. Makes an ideal winter moisturizer for most skin types a.m. and p.m., especially if one lives in a particularly cold climate—and, we're in love with how well makeup wears layered over it. Lanolin locks and binds hydration into even the driest skin types, forming a protective barrier for the skin while still letting the skin breathe. This means that oily-skin types can get the hydration they too need, with no fear of clogged pores, from this multitasking moisturizer! This pale yellow cream has a very nice mild, fruity scent—reminiscent of the eight berries it is made with in combination with a hint of citrus. The scent doesn't overpower, and lingers slightly as it absorbs into your skin. The texture is somewhere between buttery and custard-like. It comes out in a thick glob from the container, but a little goes a long way—you only need around pea-to-nickel-sized amount to cover your face.
