Product: Chambor Hydra Essential Day Moisturiser (for normal to dry skin)
Promise: Well-hydrated, soft and radiant skin
Reviewer’s skin type: Normal to dry
Pros: The moisturiser is easy to apply as its texture is like an emulsion or serum. A couple of pumps and I was good to go. It gets absorbed easily and doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue. My skin usually feels very stretched and taut just after I wash it, but the lotion kept it soft and comfortable. The mild floral fragrance is also very pleasing.
Cons: For a day lotion, it’s surprising that it lacks defences against the elements, such as SPF or active ingredients, especially since even fairness creams come with sun protection these days. Wearing sunscreen in addition to this moisturiser made my skin oily. It’s also a tad expensive (R675 for 100 ml) for such a basic moisturiser.
