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.
