Event: Creme Simon Skincare Workshop + Review of Brightening Detox Oxygenating Day Cream

Hey everyone!

Last week, I attended a short Creme Simon Skincare Workshop at Robinsons @ Raffles City, thanks to an invitation from Elle Singapore.

Look how pretty and princessy the whole set-up was. The Laduree macaroons were extremely enticing as well.

Makeup Artist Larry Yeo demonstrated the use of various Creme Simon products, some of which I'm already using.

I'm an avid fan of Creme Simon and I swear by their products. In fact, ever since I started using their Brightening Detox Exfoliation Scrub and Restorative Light Night Moisturizer, my skin had such incredible improvement that I actually skip my face makeup when I go to work. It's great to walk around bare-faced and embrace your complexion without feeling dull and ugly.

I didn't realized that I could bring along a guest so I invited my bestie at the last minute. She spontaneously agreed to attend this event with me even though she doesn't have great interest in skincare. HA HA. Well, she doesn't need it. :D

I tried Pistacchio and Lemon macaroons and they were divine! This is my first time trying Laduree macaroons although I know they're famous.

And I'm happy to receive a 5pc Creme Simon travel set and red packets from this event. :)

I also received a regular-size bottle of Creme Simon Brightening Detox Oxygenating Day Cream ($95 for a 50ml bottle) from its Winter Collection for review purposes. Thank you Deb for sending this to me!

The bottle has a stark resemblance to the Brightening Detox Restorative Light Night Moisturizer which I have been using every night and which I have previously reviewed here.

As the name suggests, this oxygenating day cream is a day moisturizer that strives to hydrate your skin as well as promote radiance and luminosity. It's great for people who live in dry and cold climates or people who have dehydrated skin due to the long hours spent in air-conditioned environments.

Many day creams that I know come in jars but this comes in a pump bottle which I really like. It's way more hygienic than having to dip your fingers into a jar of cream all the time.

Honestly, I expected the product to be really thick and milky since it's meant for people who live in dry/cold climates. I have sensitive and oily skin so I know it when I'm using a product that is too much for my skin. When a cream is too thick for my liking, my skin reacts by clogging up and developing acne.

Surprisingly, this product has a gel-creme texture that is lightweight and gets absorbed really quickly into the skin. It might be slightly thicker than the Restorative Light Night Moisturizer but it is overall still tolerable for me. For my skin type, a little bit of cream goes a long way but for people with naturally dry skin, I would recommend you to apply this product generously in the day for more hydration.

Don't forget to apply sunscreen before leaving the house! Many day creams come with SPF but not this one!
