Do you ever feel like your skin is just too hard to please when it comes to getting the moisture balance right?
Maybe it feels like it needs moisture and hydration but creams and oils (even light ones) are just too much and cause breakouts and congestion? (lookin’ at you, oily and teen skin!)
And hydrating gels feel great but just don’t provide enough lasting hydration and protection? (hello maturing combination skin!).
If you answered yes then you're not alone - this has been Phoebe’s skin challenge ever since we dreamt up Happy Skincare back in 2010.
The Butterfly Kisses Probiotic Gel Cream has been inspired by Phoebe's personal need for a perfectly balanced moisturiser for skin that needs hydration and some treatment without the risk of pesky breakouts. So this cream is a bit of a revelation in our household and Phoebe is singing Aaron’s praises even louder than usual right now!
A gel cream delivers the perfect balance of lightness and lasting moisture. It has taken us quite a long time to get the gel cream just right because the ingredient technology hasn’t been available for natural products. Until now.
To reduce the chance of breakouts the Butterfly Kisses doesn’t use any solid waxes, butters or heavy occlusive ingredients. Instead it uses some natural magic to deliver the lightness of a gel with the deep moisturisation of a cream. Hence the name Butterfly Kisses (a butterfly kiss is the light brushing of someone’s eyelashes across your cheeks) ;)
Who should use the Butterfly Kisses Probiotic Gel Cream?
Your skin will fall head over heels in love with the Butterfly Kisses if you…
- Have oily or combination skin (all ages),
- Are a teens or tweens, or
- Live in humid or tropical climates
The Butterfly Kisses will suit almost everyone except those of us with very dry skin, unless you get a bit creative! Dry skin types can use the Butterfly Kisses together with another moisturiser, layering your richer moisturiser over the top.
