Amalie Beauty has become one of my favorite natural and organic skincare brands because their products are so well-made and my dry skin loves them.
Recently, I wrote about REWIND Anti-aging Face Oil from Amalie’s Farm to Face collection of skincare products where the ingredients are grown organically on their Indiana farm and the finished product is handcrafted. Each batch is made with their own ingredients, and when it’s gone, it’s gone until a new crop is harvested next season. Persimmon Anti-aging Night Creme is part of the Amalie Farm to Face collection.
Here’s what Amalie has to say about it:
“Persimmon Anti-Aging Night Creme is the newest luxe addition to the organic, homegrown, handmade Farm to Face collection. Powerful extracts from persimmon leaf reduce visible signs of aging, while organic pumpkin seed and black walnut oils hydrate and nourish dry, tired skin. High levels of hyaluronic acid improves skin’s ability to retain water, leaving you with hydrated skin both day and night. If you smell carefully, the lightest fragrance of Persimmon will take you away to hot September days and cool September nights in Southern Indiana, where these Persimmons were born.”
I did a bit of reading about persimmon after this product arrived, and it is a vitamin and mineral powerhouse with vitamins A and C and lots of minerals including magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, potassium, and others. The persimmon fruit has been called “Divine Fruit” for its beauty and many health benefits. The leaf is valued by the Japanese for its many health benefits (aiding digestion and metabolism, curing allergies to pollen, and strengthening blood capillaries to prevent bruising), and it is made into tea. Cold persimmon leaf tea can be put into a spray bottle and used as a cooling toning mist. It can be mixed with aloe vera gel. Or you can just buy Amalie Persimmon Anti-aging Night Creme that also has other beneficial ingredients for healthy, youthful skin.
One of the things I like most about Persimmon Anti-aging Night Creme is its lightweight but very hydrating formula. It almost seems like a serum. The directions say to apply it after skin serums as a final step. I pump out a small amount that seems to be only a few drops, and that covers my face. It feels very light but also velvety on my skin. My skin feels hydrated but not weighed down. It is really unlike any moisturizer or “creme” that I’ve ever tried. I love it! If you dislike heavy anti-aging creams and moisturizers, this is for you!
Although the Amalie description of the product mentions “the lightest fragrance of Persimmon”, to be honest I don’t smell any scent.
Because it is a primarily hand grown and handcrafted skincare product, it is pricey. It is currently marked down on the Amalie Beauty website to $90 for 50 ml/1.7 fl. oz. The website still shows a code HOLIDAY17 for an additional 15% off (I would try it even though we’re in 2018!) There are samples available for $10. Free shipping. Amalie Beauty is a cruelty-free brand.
Have you tried any of the Amalie Beauty products yet?
