Do you know a moisturizer can protect your skin from environmental damage and inflammation? Moisturizers are the necessary step to get healthy glowing skin, no matter what’s the season, skin type or age. Just make sure that you are choosing the product that works for your skin type.
I’m not an exception. Every night (in the day routine I apply SPF), I apply moisturizer at the fourth step in my skincare regime. Mine is combination skin with oily T-zone and dry cheeks. I never skip a moisturizer even during humid summer days. Moisturizers come in various forms, like creams, oils or lotions to target different skin types and their problems. They contain different ingredients to treat specific skin issues like acne, wrinkles, dryness etc. Choosing right option for you is the basic thing to maximize the benefits.
Always, in each post, I try to give you some ideas about different products, so that you can get an idea before investing your hard earned money for a product. Well, today I am going to talk about a moisturizer from one of my favorite brand Greenie Mill.
Greenie Mill Sea Buckthorn, Ashwagandha and Hibiscus Moisturizer:
Skin type – Dry skin
“Formulated with Geranium hydrosol, sea buckthorn and moringa oil, this moisturizer hydrate your skin. The ashwagandha and frankincense oil prevent rough texture. Moringa oil, rosehip and tamanu oil moisturize deeper layers of skin tissue.”
Why did I choose this Moisturizer?
The three key ingredients Sea Buckthorn, Ashwagandha and Hibiscus have instigated me to try this. These three have excellent effects on our skin. Let’s talk about it.
Enriched with antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids, Sea Buckthorn may boost the elasticity, delivers hydration, and treats acne causing bacteria. Actually, Sea Buckthorn improves the overall skin health.
Packed with antioxidants and antiinflammatory properties this miraculous herb is nature’s wonderful gift for us. Ashwagandha protects our skin from environmental pollutants, free radical damage and thus helps to slow down the aging process. It treats acne, gives healthy and vibrant skin texture as well.
This botox plant provides a fresh, smooth and youthful complexion. It acts as a skin purifier, helps tightening the skin, makes it firm and even toned. With its antiinflammatory properties, Hibiscus flower treats redness and lessens inflammation and antioxidants in it protects skin from free radicals damage and thus premature aging process is delayed.
Now you know what makes me to incorporate this baby in my winter skincare routine. Not only that the name Greenie Mill is enough for trying any product from their range. It’s the purity and the authenticity that push me to buy their products. All are formulated with skin-friendly, natural ingredients sourced from the local market. Check the entire range here.

The beige colored product comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with black pump dispenser and a transparent plastic cap. Quite a compact and handy packaging. All info, about the product is provided on the bottle. Madhumita, the owner of the brand has given the full ingredients list on the bottle.
I have been using this for three weeks. I apply the runny and semi-thick textured product every night on my face and neck after cleansing and toning. And on the top of the product I apply Greenie Mill Mangosteen and Rosehip beauty dews. I have repurchased this face oil.
am so happy that I have discovered such a great product. I just blindly purchased this item without reading any reviews. And, honestly I wasn’t wrong choosing this. It has done a great job for my skin texture. I feel like I’m putting a good product on my skin rather than chemicals and artificial perfumes.
My skin type is combination and sensitive. The skin acts as dry during winter. That’s why I purchased this moisturizer for dry skin with loads of oils and butter. But, to my surprise the lightweight formula is non-greasy and not excessive oily. It soaks in so fast and gives a matte and fresh feel, leaving the skin perfectly moist. I wake up with a well hydrated skin. You know, this lasts throughout the day. You can smell the herbs in it. No added fragrance is there. Perfect for my hyper sensitive skin. Isn’t it exciting?
It has made such a difference to my skin that I can see much less breakouts, skin is soft, clear and healthy and feels even. This has become the perfect winter skincare product for my mature skin.
Overall, I am loving the moisturizer as it provides the ultimate dose of moisture for smooth, supple skin and protects the skin from the harshest winter climate. The dry skin people can use it throughout the year.
