TIME BOMB - does this blow other skincare away?


Powerball Intensive Moisturiser



The older I get, or more to the point, the older my face/skin gets I know it's asking for more. The dehydration that lingers around my eye area, upper cheek, is a more frequent visitor - so it's time to try a ball of hydration from Time Bomb skincare. This brand has was developed to help 'stop the clock', not sure about that but a product designed for my issue appealed (and yes, it is Lulu's brand).

Created to to defeat dehydration acute and chronic (just these words make me furrow my brow - have they anything for that?, the brow I mean)

Firstly I rather like the ball-ness of the packaging, there is something about a this spherical object that gives me hope.

This cold cream looking product disguises a light weight lotion which applies easily to the skin with a hint of sweet coconut.



Pout Thoughts:

Another one to add to the list of - absorbs faster than the speed of light, seriously it hasn't even the manners to shake hands before entering the dark side. 
I like the texture but I do like at least some sign of a moisturiser left behind and this makes me nervous when it's all gone before I have time to put the lid on the jar. Although this can be indication of how dehydrated my face is!
I like it but I am not sure on the whole how much.......
After several weeks I can safely say that though a reasonable moisturiser, it hasn't had any effect really on my dehydrated areas. My skin is certainly moisturised but nothing that many other pots of cream have done before and will do after. It is still absorbing fast, skin is smooth and reasonably hydrated, but I still have patches of dehydration and have taken to incorporating a facial oil into my routine to help with this. 
As a moisturiser it works but it's purpose to help with dehydration is a disappointment.
