Astral was first launched in 1950, and still follows the same main formula now as it did back then. The product does not advertise itself as some kind of miracle, its simple and understated, and after testing the product out for over a month now - I can tell you, it really does work, and it works well

Astral is described as an "all over moisturiser" meaning you can use it for both the face and body. It has an intensively moisturising formula, containing two main ingredients; Lanolin - a hypoallergenic, easily absorbed moisturiser which locked in moisture but still allows the skin to breathe and Glycerine - a natural moisturiser for smoother, younger looking skin. 

Astral Original is especially good for re-hydrating dry skin areas such as your elbows and knees, and it also creates a protective barrier to lock in the moisture. The thick, luxuriously creamy texture is unfortunately a little thick for me to use on my face (the light & creamy version might be better) but works great on my body, I especially love how silky smooth it makes my legs feel! It doesn't take too much work or rubbing in to apply and is absorbed fairly quickly. It does have a slightly "soapy", fresh fragrance but nothing too overpowering. 

The product is particularly aimed at people with mature skin, but I say you're never too young to start looking after your skins needs - so this is pretty much suitable for everyone other than very oily skin types! I will also mention that the product is dermatalogically tested and is not tested on animals. It's a winner in my books, and surprisingly affordable too at just £1.29 for 50ml, ranging up to a huge 500ml tub and is available from Superdrug, Boots etc. There is also a Light & Creamy version containing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, aimed more towards sensitive skin types which I would definitely like to try!

Have you ever tried either of these Astral creams - What are your thoughts on it?

  1. I've never tried this before but I'll have to pick up a pot and give it a go - I'm really suffering with my elbows at the moment, so frustrating! x
