Would you use a moisturiser on your precious face that had past its expiry date? I did, with Shiffa Dubai Tamanu Moisturising Cream – and let me tell you, I have no regrets!
It was my fault really. Being a beauty blogger, I have an abundance of beauty products waiting to grace my face / hair / body. So it wasn’t as if I had bypassed Shiffa Dubai Tamanu Moisturising Cream because I didn’t WANT to try it, but its because it looked so luxe in its pretty packaging with the cardboard box and ribbon. I didn’t want to disturb it. But when I eventually did, I realised the cream had expired!!!
I was faced (pun alert!) with a dilemma – either risk it and slather it on my precious dry / sensitive face or slap the expensive cream on my dehydrated legs. I chose the former. And it was a great choice!
Shiffa Dubai Tamanu Moisturising Cream is a very rich cream that works wonder on dry-skinned ladies like me. Not only is it nourishing, but I feel that it has helped firm up my skin too. The key ingredients are tamanu plant oil (yeah, I’ve not heard of it either), Chilean rosehip oil (oh yes, I know that one), jojoba and avocado oil.
It may not be the most hygienic practice to dip fingers into a tub, but I can definitely think of less hygienic finger-dipping activities and I shall say no more! *ahem* 😛
So yes, I slap this on at night and wake up with smooth, soft and supple skin! And it is so rich that I don’t need a serum beforehand to boost the hydration.
But, an important point to note is that my Husband thinks it has an unpleasant smell as it is very pungent. It is a Husband-repellent, but I personally, do not mind it myself 🙂
Shiffa Dubai Tamanu Moisturising Cream retails at $160 AUD for 50ml – so you can see why I was hesitant to waste it on my legs 😛
Shiffa Dubai products are available to purchase online at Miss Fox in Melbourne or in their beautiful salon.
Disclosure : This moisturiser was part of the awesome MBBE 2011 goody bag. I do not normally recommend applying expired beauty products. If in doubt, chuck it out.
