Elemis Maximum Moisture Day Cream Overview
I sometimes wonder if maybe we have too many different skincare product designations. I understand the need for separate products addressing specific things like dark spots and acne. But what I’m talking about is the difference between things like day cream and night cream, face cream and eye cream. I tend to think these distinctions are more of an excuse for us to buy more products But that’s just my opinion.
The product we’re looking at today is called Elemis Maximum Moisture Day Cream. As the name suggests, it’s for daytime use. But oddly, it provides no protection from the sun. What it does claim to do is provide continuous hydration to dry and very dry skin, while also adapting to your skin’s needs in terms of protection from environmental toxins.
The adaptive functions in Elemis Maximum Moisture Day Cream come from two unique plants called Myrothamnus and Tamarind. These desert beauties find themselves adapting to very extreme climate fluctuations. It is this skill, as well as their antioxidant properties that they bring to this product. For deep hydration, Elemis Maximum Moisture Day Cream uses extracts from the African Baobab Tree, Jojoba Seeds, Saw Palmetto Berries, and Black Poplar Bud which are also rich in vitamins as well.
The instructions are to apply a small amount in the morning after cleansing and treating, and before applying makeup.

With so many not-so-positive reviews, I have to decline to recommend Elemis Maximum Moisture Day Cream. If you can get a sample, that’s one thing. You’ll be able to try without making a monetary commitment. If not, I’d say skip it for something less expensive that works.
