To protect my skin, I treat it to serums, moisturizers, sun screen infused makeup, and cleaning; and in each of these, I try to use quality products. I previously reviewed Adovia Serum and found it to be a quality product and one I can recommend. Now I have had the opportunity to evaluate Adovia Moisturizing Day Cream to see how it works on my skin.

My thoughts: I found it to be rather thick - thicker than I normally like. I also found that I usually prefer a cream that leaves an allusion of a youthful glow and this one does not. It leaves a sort of matte finish "loo" and this remains even after the application of my high quality department store makeup. The appearance is somewhat reminiscent of using a moisturizer and then a makeup primer prior to application of makeup. I don't care for primers and don't use them.
However, the Adovia Day Cream absolutely does soften the face and leaves it nicely conditioned. So it works as a moisturizer and it works well.
How I used it...... After cleaning my face, I applied a serum (vitamin C or hyaluronic acid) followed by the Adovia Day Cream. I rubbed the moisturizer between my fingers to warm it a bit before applying to my face. I used my hands in rotating motions to spread the cream all over my face and neck ending with upward sweeps. After allowing it to soak into my skin and "dry," I applied my makeup for the day.
