Fresh from the vault this month is a moisturiser that is great for dehydrated skins, but the question is what are my thoughts four years on?
Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream (£36.00) was the first of the Pai Skincare moisturisers I tried. It had been on my radar for a long while but for one reason or another I hadn’t had a chance to go beyond testing it in store until recently. I briefly flirted with the idea of picking up a bottle of the Echium & Macadamia Replenishing Day Cream(formally known as Macadamia and Rose Cream), however the small text at the top of the bottle stating Pure Hydration (as supposed to Age Confidence) was what swing it for me.
Richly thick and luxurious in texture, Pai Avocado and Jojoba Day Cream is a moisturiser formulated specifically for dry, sensitive and dehydrated skins. The oil rich formulation provides lashings of vitamin goodness, whilst the combination of Avocado and Jojoba is a winning one. Their moisturising and nourishing properties leave my skin immensely soft and supple and thoroughly hydrated; even hours into the day that recently moisturised feel remains.
The scent is neither particularly avocado-y or jojoba-y. In fact I would say that the fleeting and subtle (very subtle) underlying fragrance is of Geranium oil with a hint of jasmine; striking just the right balance of flowery-ness and woodiness.
Simply but elegantly housed in the glass Pai Skincare livery, the bottle is pretty weighty and not great for travelling (thank goodness for the travel sizes!) but it looks good on the bathroom shelf… I think you will agree, this moisturiser ticks pretty much every box…

I am still a massive fan this moisturiser (and every other Pai product I have tried). It feels amazing on the skin and feels like a real treat of a product on application.
Pai Moisturisers are still very much a part of my pro kit (they along with Weleda make up the bulk of my kit moisturisers). I have all three of the day creamsin my skincare bag and I don’t see that changing any time soon.
