Review: Laidbare Working 9 to 5 Anti-Aging Hydration Cream

Review Laidbare 9 to 5
I purchased Laidbare's Working 9 to 5 Anti-Aging Hydration Cream back in January from TKMaxx for the bargain price of £4.99, but only began using it mid-July, as I wanted to clear out some of my extensive moisturiser stash first. I've been using it now for around a month and thought it was high time I shared my thoughts with you all!
Packaged in a simple pink and white cardboard box, the outer casing gives plenty of information about the product within; "You think you work hard? Our hydration cream moisturises and protects around the clock! With extracts of Rose Water to calm, revitalise and soften the skin. Anti-aging Iceland Moss helps to combat the fight against time, and Gotu Kola works by stimulating collagen production. Application: Use in the morning and again before bedtime after cleansing and toning with Laidbare DIY! Bonus: Cassis Augustifolia Seed Polysaccharide is considered a natural version of Hyaluronic Acid due to its water-attracting properties; essential for plumped and youthful skin."

The screw-cap tube within follows the same colour-scheme and gives the same information (minus the ingredients); handy for those of us who don't tend to keep outer packaging once we begin using a product! The moisturiser itself is a medium-texture white cream which has a subtle Rose scent and feels really light on the skin. Despite this, though, it does take some rubbing in, as you can see below; most moisturisers I've tried have been long gone by the point I took this photo, yet here you can still see the moisturiser sitting on the skin.

Once worked in, the skin is left feeling soft and smooth, with no obvious lingering scent. It gives a lovely base for your make-up which goes on flawlessly over it. I have noticed recently that my skin has been looking a lot clearer; I'm not sure that I'd put it down to this moisturiser as I have been a lot better in general at looking after my skin, but the lovely calming ingredients can't hurt and certainly haven't broken me out or anything like that. I do feel like it gives a really lovely moisturisation, such that my skin gets less oily, although only marginally - this is a definite bonus for me and my oil-slick forehead!
Overall, I really like this moisturiser; it smells good, does a lovely job at moisturising and softening my skin, and hasn't broken me out, all for a bargain price! My one and only complaint would be that it doesn't contain SPF, which is something I do like in a day cream, but since this is designed for use day and night it's probably to be expected.
You can purchase Laidbare Working 9 To 5 direct from their website at the reduced price of £3.99 for 50ml.
