I scooped a quarter-size amount of the moisturizer onto my skin, and holy shit — it was so cold, I almost dropped it. Luckily, I didn’t, and began to slowly rub the icy concoction onto my skin. Instantly, my skin woke up as if I had poured a glass of water, er, ice onto it.
But that didn’t last long: The ice particles quickly melted right into my pores and gave me an all-over glowy look. The finish was a little tacky after it dried down, but I wasn’t mad at it; it kind of felt like a primer. That being said, although I used the Frozen Cream before bed, I think moving forward, it’ll be better used as a cool morning treat to help me wake up, as well as a great base layer before foundation.
But what would happen if I didn’t freeze the moisturizer? After reading a few reviews online, I found out that, yes, you can also use it at room temperature. However, after speaking to Mona Gohara, a board-certified dermatologist based in Connecticut, I may be sticking to the frozen version from here on out.
“There is a benefit to that cool sensation, that’s why I often tell my patients to put their products in the refrigerator,” she says. “It brings down puffiness, feels good, is refreshing. Think of those cold cucumbers on your eyes at a spa. It really just adds to the experience.”
And she’s so right. My skin felt refreshed, vibrant, and in the morning, my cheeks looked noticeably smoother and less inflamed — an area that can get pretty red from recent breakouts. I guess it’s safe to say that I’ll definitely be using the Frozen Cream in my routine from here on out. The ingredient list is simple, the sensation is cool (literally), and it doesn’t mess with my sensitive skin — the perfect trifecta, if you ask me.
