Guys. I’ve found it. I’ve found the face cream that is super ultra rich without being heavy and greasy feeling. One that absorbs and keeps my skin soft and moisturized through the night. One that has almost no fragrance, is gentle, and is pleasant to use.
The Atopalm Extreme Cream is designed for those of us who have some seriously dry skin. This hypoallergenic formula contains ceramides to help repair and rebuild the skin barrier. I am a huge fan of ceramides as they basically saved my face from falling off back in the early days of my Curology use, so I’ll greedily snatch up any product that includes it in their formulas.
So why am I so impressed with this particular cream over the vast world of face creams available out there? Well, I’ve talked about this before, but my skin is unnaturally dry. Without the addition of tretinoin in my weekly routines I have very oily acne prone skin. So while my skin is super dry and dehydrated now, it also gets confused and freaks out when I add too many oils or a product that is too occlusive. So I need rich and moisturizing without being heavy and suffocating. My pores will make me suffer if I’m not careful. The Extreme Cream gives me all the positives with none of the negatives.
This has virtually no scent outside of a clean lotion fragrance, and is incredibly gentle. I haven’t experienced even a moment of irritation from using this, and it is in fact a wonderful cream to use post-microneedling.
I do think it would be too heavy for anyone with oily and maybe even combo skin, but Atopalm also offers the intense moisture cream. This is similar in formula but as you can see (top swatch in final photo) a lighter and runnier texture.
Ive been using this for a solid month and will be using it to its last, and then repurchasing!
