Notable Facts About This Product: Pai is a UK based company started by Sarah Brown in 2007.  All products are created in-house (R&D lab and manufacturing facility) and the Pai team includes two formulation scientists.  This cream contains 76% Organic ingredients and Avacado oil which is rich in Vitamins A, D and E.

My Personal Experience (Andrea):  I was first introduced to Pai by Sally from Fresh Faced.  I have pretty dry skin, especially in the winter, and was looking for a classic-style moisturizer (meaning not an oil) when it started getting cold.  Originally, I had a small sample of this product, applying it on top of my facial oil.  I used the sample in just a few days and then went without for a few weeks, but my skin felt like it was really missing it, so I called up Sally to get my hands on a full-size bottle.  It's a great moisturizing cream that feels like a lotion because it isn't too heavy, which many moisturizers for dry skin tend to be.  In the summer I'll definitely use this on it's own without an oil underneath, and I think it's perfect for wearing under makeup.

Verdict: ❤❤

  1. I keep passing by Pai for my spa because of the price. It's funny because I have John Masters, Suki, Pure + Simple etc and they are not cheap either. After reading this, I may have to reconsider. Thanks :-)

    1. Hi Lisa,

      I highly recommend the line. I have a few of their other items, and they're great - totally worth the price!
