vbeauté Buying Time Everyday Crème is a really fantastic and highly effective anti-aging twice daily face cream that is light in feel, but is heavy on moisture. It sinks into the skin quickly, but provides the perfect amount of hydration. I am always a bit concerned when I try out a new face cream because anything too rich will likely cause my combination skin to break out, but not so with this amazingly effective cream. vbeauté has managed to magically harness a unique technology and/or combination of ingredients that allows it to simultaneously be highly moisturizing while not triggering breakouts. This is likely a function of the anti-irritants and anti-inflammatory ingredients that are an integral part of this remarkable formula. This cream is unique because while it delivers deep moisture and hydration, it is not so rich that you must sit and wait for it to sink in before applying your finishing products. My skin looks healthy, glowing, clear, hydrated, well-rested, and generally very happy after having used this twice daily for the last 6 or more weeks. In fact, my skin looks so fantastic that I can no longer imagine a future without this cream! I love the consistency, the potency of the ingredients, and its ability to deliver moisture and hydration that lasts all day. When applied at night, my skin has a pronounced luminosity and clarity the following morning. This is one of the nicest and most effective creams that I have tried in years. It is formulated to work well for all skin types, and I believe that it will do just that.
