Product Review: Zensation's Beaute New Super Nourishing Cream SPF 50

Today, I have a review of a cream from Zensation, their Super Nourishing Cream SPF 50.

The press release says that it is "an intensely moisturizing day cream that doubles as a powerful skin guard. Zensation luxury skincare fuses the best in modern biotechnology with the purity of the Swiss Alps. The multifunctional Super Nourishing Cream SPF 50 combines precious natural coastal plant extracts with high-tech SPF 50 UVA/UVB coverage to give you supple skin that's protected from the damaging, aging effects of the sun."

This cream feels very luxurious and high-end, definitely not something that you could pick up from Wal-Mart or the drugstore. The smell is very light, almost vanilla-y, although it doesn't list vanilla as an ingredient, but I notice it after a few minutes, even though I'm usually really sensitive to fragrances.


The top of the box. Even though the box was paper, the embossed logo made it feel so fancy. I'm such a sucker for packaging, and you'll see why I loved this cream in a few pictures.


The front of the packaging. I love the touch of the flowers. Wispy flower designs like the one on the Zensation box are my favorite, and it just adds such a pretty, feminine touch to the boring packaging.


Side of the packaging, with ingredients. If you want to look them up, feel free to click the image to enlarge.


The other side, with directions and a little bit more information.


The text from the last side, with information about Zensation and the product. This Super Nourishing Cream is cruelty-free!

Okay, now that the packaging is done and over with, we'll get to the real prize. The Super Nourishing Cream.


A picture of the jar. You can't really see it, but the sides of the jar have the same flowery design that the box had. This jar is gorgeous. It's very thick, frosted glass and it is just gorgeous. Plus, it looks so pretty on my nightstand. On top of the jar is the plastic spatula that came with the cream.


The cream! It kind of looks like yogurt in this picture... The texture is a little bit thicker than yogurt, but it applies really well and it doesn't take a lot. There's a better picture of the spatula in the picture. I was super excited to get the spatula, because I hate sticking my fingers in jars to reach product, especially since my nails are long and it gets under them and it's just very unsanitary.

Overall, this product is amazing. I'm new to Zensation, but I'll definitely buy from them. This Super Nourishing Cream applies beautifully, doesn't have a particularly strong smell, has sunscreen in it (I don't spend a lot of time in the sun, so I only use sunscreen every once in awhile, but I'll definitely have to change it with this), and is packaged beautifully.

5 stars out of 5!
