Terre Verdi NeroliPom Moisturiser: One For All Seasons

Terre Verdi NeroliPom Moisturiser held up in front of pink flower on a bush

I have tried a LOT of moisturizers, but none of them have ever been quite 100% perfect for my skin.  Too heavy, too sticky, or not even moisture have been the main issues, along with irritation from high concentrations of essential oils and unseemly spots brought on by ingredients high on the comedogenic scale.  Through all my trials, I've discovered I react to phenoxyethonal, that my face cannot handle coconut oil at all, and that I don't get on well with 'creamy' or rich formulas.  Honestly, I was getting to the point where I thought no moisturizer would ever totally suit my needs.  Then I got a sample tin in a subscription box that totally changed my mind.

Not only was NeroliPom the beginning of a great future and innovative future for Terre Verdi, but it was also the answer to my moisturizer woes.  Never have I tried a formula that is so lightweight while also delivering a high level of nourishment.  My skin loved the stuff, and when my 5ml sample pot ran out I was gutted.  I knew I had to really test this out long term on my skin to see if it was as good as my initial experience hinted it was.  So when I was offered the chance to review Terre Verdi's NeroliPom moisturizer courtesy of Rare Beauty, I was over the moon.

NeroliPom is technically formulated for dry or mature skin, but my skin is neither of those things.  Normally, I would worry that a product targeting a skin type that is far from my own would be disastrous, but I had full faith in this moisturizer based on my original trial run.  And I was right to trust Terre Verdi.

The cream is a dream - light, smooth, fully absorbing, and satin-soft.  White tea, pomegranate seed oil, aloe vera powder, and neroli flower oil work together to make an antioxidant packed moisturizer that is both soothing and wholesome, and the formula helps tackle problem prone skin and sensitivities.  Just what my fussy combination skin needs!  The texture is a cross between a lotion and a serum, and it applies effortlessly.  The moisturizer glides across your face and neck and feels weightless once on, and not greasy at all -- what more can a girl ask for??

Oh, a moisturizer that also works well under makeup without the need for tons of other products, that's what!  I don't wear foundation often, but I did trial NeroliPom on a 'full face' just to see how it faired.  I expected my makeup to shift or 'melt' like it usually does, but that was not the case at all.  The moisturizer replaced the need for any primer, and since the formula is not oily my foundation and blush stayed matte all afternoon.  Just be sure to let the product sink in fully first before applying makeup, as otherwise you may find things get a bit messy.

I have a feeling this is going to save my skin this winter, as despite the moisturizer being delicate, it is also deeply nourishing.  I tend to get dry patches on my cheeks and nose as the weather turns colder, and I have confidence that NeroliPom will keep my entire face looking smooth and supple even on the windiest and bitterest of days.  Even just after a few weeks use I can tell my skin is looking more elastic and glowy, so just imagine what months of use will do...  I can't wait to find out!

Something else I love about this skincare product from Terre Verdi is the fresh smell -- it is uplifting and so delicately floral with a hint of sweet fruit.  The product is perfect for those mornings or evenings where you need a little boost but don't have time to light a candle or fuss about with aromatherapy treatments.  Just breathe in the excess from your fingertips and feel any bad energy leave you.

One thing that has become increasingly important to me when buying a new item is it being plastic free or as free from unsustainable materials as possible.  Well, not only does Terre Verdi use biophotonic violet glass, but the bottle is shipped box free meaning there is no excess or wasted packaging.  The pump applicator is the only plastic involved with NeroliPom, but to be fair it is difficult to find a moisturizer that is totally free from plastic.  

The pump keeps the product sterile and hygienic, and allows it to last longer as very little oxygen is exposed to the inside.  Plus, the applicator gives the perfect amount every time, meaning you don't over-apply.  Based on how long just the 5ml size lasted me, I think the full 50ml size bottle will keep my skin healthy and hydrated for a long long while!

Old Packaging

I am beyond thrilled that Terre Verdi's NeroliPom lived up to my high expectations, and so thankful I have finally found my perfect moisturizer.  No break outs, no redness, and no faffing about using different formulas to address each part of my fussy face.  I am well impressed by this skincare product, and now I cannot wait to try more from Terre Verdi in the future.  Who knows, maybe my next favourite beauty treat is waiting to be found in this certified organic range!

Thinking of having your own spending spree?  Will you grab the perfect moisturizer from Terre Verdi?  I would love to hear what your wish list includes or even what you would like to read a review of next!
