Astral Cream Review

original astral cream review
 Astral cream has been around for longer then I can remember and has been a favourite skincare product of my mums and nana for years, so I thought the time came for me to try this cream for myself to see what all the fuss was about. I ended up treating buying this half price in super drug last month so I could test it properly to see if it worked for me.

Astral is an all intense moisturiser to take care of the skin that they haven't needed to change the formula since they first brought the product out which is over 50 years ago. This cream is also mulit-use so can be used on the hands, skin and the face.

I bought the largest tub available which is the 500ml because I like to save the pennies and of course it would last me a lot longer too because me and my husband both use skincare products together, its like a mini pamper session every morning and last thing at night.
Astral Cream Review
First things first this cream is so thick and to quite honest it may look a little daunting but once you get it on your skin  its actually quite soothing and quite nice and relaxing to apply to the skin. I used a walnut sized amount on my skin and neck, a dollop on my hands and body. The cream is very soft and silky and rubs into my skin easily without any mess and didn't leave my skin feeling greasy afterwards. The scent of the cream is a little bit over the top but that hasn't put me off the cream at all because it works well on my skin. I have sensitive skin and this cream didn't make my skin sore it was just soothing.
