Tromborg Deluxe Face Cream Day & Night Moisturizer
I’ve had quite the skincare journey the last few years. As my budget grew, so did the price of my skincare repertoire. I still remember using my Matas skin tonic, mattifying moisturiser, and prescription acne cream back when I was 13. My skin has changed from being very oily and very acne-prone to a more combination/oily and less acne-prone. I finally feel like I can experiment more with my skincare, and buy more expensive products without the constant paranoia of how my acne would react to it.
After I’d finished my Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre, the need for a new year-round moisturiser rose again. I’m much more inclined to use whatever moisturiser I want any time of the year instead of season-specific products. I just don’t have the money for that. However, a blessing descended upon me in the form of a gift card from my in-laws, so I was able to not be as price picky as I normally would.
Danish skincare brands have gained quite the following recently. You see them everywhere on social media: Tromborg, Karmameju, Rudolph Care, Nuori etc. And no, REN is not Danish or Scandinavian which I always believed for some reason (REN does mean ‘clean’ in Danish/Swedish/Norwegian, don’t blame me). A thought came to me: shouldn’t we support local brands a little more? That’s how I got my hands on the Tromborg Deluxe Face Cream Day & Night Moisturizer.
The first thing I was told when I asked for this in the store was how popular it is. Tromborg is seen as something luxurious and mostly associated with anti-age, so I felt quite like the sophisticated 20-year old. It’s packed to the brim with vitamins, oils, collagen, amino acids, and plant extracts. Reading the ingredients list was an experience on its own. The cream is supposed to be anti-septic and prevents hypersensitivity while keeping the moisture balance on the skin. Sounds like a dream to me! As the name suggests, the cream is meant to be used as a day and night cream. The website says that it is suitable for all skin types, ages, and gender (duh!)
The cream itself has a glossy look to it, and when applied to the skin it feels as something between a buttery and oil-ish texture. A little goes a long way. I use a little spoon to get the cream out of the jar (gotta watch that hygiene!) and 1 little spoon is enough for the whole face. After a few seconds, the cream begins to get incredibly sticky and it scared me to no end as I am a very vocal anti-stickiness advocate. Give it a few minutes and the stickiness turns into a soft, powdery texture. I’ve only been using this as a night cream, as I’m trying to finish my other moisturiser. I can tell you, after the Tromborg cream has been sitting for the whole night I wake up with the softest skin I’ve had in ages.
It does not separate with my face oil as some creams might do. I haven’t experienced any pilling with this and I imagine you would have to apply a huge amount for that to happen.
In conclusion, for a person with oily/combination skin, this is a great face cream. The powdery finish is the winning point for me. A cream that makes me regret putting it on after only an hour will quickly be moved to my night routine. As I previously mentioned, I’m only using it at night for now as I’m trying to finish another cream at the moment. With the incredible softness that it provides my skin with when I wake up in the morning, I can only say that I can’t wait to use it day AND night. My acne hasn’t made a major change in any way, but I figure that the anti-septic properties doesn’t aggravate it and helps with the redness. That is only a plus for me. I’ll say that it is worth the money. If you want a face cream that kind of does-it-all with the right ingredients and the right finish, then this will absolutely be for you.
The Tromborg Deluxe Face Cream Day & Night Moisturizer comes in a 50ml jar for roughly £52.
