You can use the Cream on its own, on clean skin after cleansing, but also boost it, layer it and combine it with it other products. Here are our ten favourite Face Cream tips:
1. Hydrate and care for different kinds of problem skin
In terms of composition and ingredients, the Face Cream is a great choice for different types of problem skin. The Cream is a favourite amongst many of our rosacea, perioral dermatitis and acne prone customers.
2. Eye cream
The Face Cream is light and gentle enough to use around the eye area as an eye cream.
3. Go for a minimalist skin care routine
4. Combine with our Face Oil for a nourishing boost
Give the Face Cream a nourishing boost by mixing a few drops of our Softening Face Oil with it. Skin will feel soft and deeply hydrated, but not greasy, as the Oil leaves a near-matte finish.
5. Combine with our Clarifying Serum to tackle impurities and shine
Combine our Face Cream with our purifying, oil balancing and anti-inflammatory Clarifying Serum. It’s the easy way to tackle impurities, pimples and clogged pores without drying out skin. Mix a few pumps of Serum with the Cream and apply to clean skin. Alternatively, layer the Cream over the Serum.
6. Combine with our Calming Serum to tackle redness and irritation
Combine the Face Cream with our hydrating, soothing and repairing Calming Serum to amp up on calming skincare. It's the easy way to tackle irritated skin, and is a great combo if you're dealing with POD and rosacea. Mix a few drops of Serum with the Cream and apply to clean skin. Alternatively, layer the Cream over the Serum.
7. Combine with our Renewing Serum to tackle fine lines and pigmentation
Combine the Face Cream with our hydrating and lightly nourishing Renewing Serum to treat signs of aging the gentle way and without irritation. It's the easy way tackle dull and uneven skin - the Renewing Serum gives skin a lovely (non-greasy) glow. Hot tip: the Renewing Serum is also great for treating spots on drier/mature skin. Mix a few pumps of Serum with the Cream and apply to clean skin. Alternatively, layer the Cream over the Serum.
8. Make-up primer for sensitive and problem skin
The Face Cream doubles as a primer under makeup. The colloidal oatmeal and poppy seed oil in the cream create a ‘blurring’ effect, mimicking silicone. Apply a small amount of Face Cream to skin before applying makeup.
9. Fix flaky foundation
You know those days when your makeup looks dry, flaky and cake-y? The Face Cream can also be used over makeup. Pat in a tiny amount of the Cream on top makeup cream to smooth dry or rough areas of the skin.

The Cream is a great alternative to after-shave care. Simply apply to skin after shaving.
