I've had my hands on the MSM Beauty Cream since last Saturday and I've found myself dipping into the pot a good few times a day just to pat a little bit extra on my face or massage it into my hands.
MSM Beauty Cream is essentially a brilliant organic cacao butter based moisturiser with added skin-loving bits and MSM. Formed naturally as a by-product of algae, MSM stands for Methyl-Sulphonyl-Methane, a 'nutritional sulphur' that is commonly used to treat the effects of arthritis and helps to form collagen, elastin, cartilage and keratin.
MSM is also known as 'The Beauty Mineral' as it promotes a clearer, more radiant complexion and healthier hair.
The MSM in the Raw Gaia Beauty Cream is there to bring a glow factor to the skin and while I can't comment on any long term effects at this stage, I can say that my skin is definitively 'glowier' once I've massaged it into my face.
Consistency wise, the cream is like a solidified oil that melts with the warmth of your hands. I find this particularly pleasant as it sort of adds to the whole ritual of a skincare routine. The MSM crystals are actually noticeable too- once you rub a little of the cream on your hands you can see (if you look closely) and feel the little transparent particles.
The Raw Gaia MSM Beauty Cream is particularly good for dry or mature skin as it contains organic apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, organic frankincense essential oil and myrhh essential oil all mixed up with organic cacao butter and MSM crystals.
The scent of the MSM Beauty Cream is definitely something to write home about too. The combination of cacao and frankincense gives the cream a rather indulgent dark chocolate aroma - and you can't go wrong with that!
Raw Gaia MSM Beauty Cream is £27.99 for a 60ml jar and is available online at Raw Gaia here. I challenge you not to spend far too long pondering the Raw Chocolate Face Pack, Shikakai Hair Wash or Grapefruit and Lime Bath Salts.
