My local Kohl’s store sells a line of beauty products made by Grassroots Life, Dist. and I have been trying out a few of their products. When my vitamin C face cream ran out, I decided to try the Grassroots Research Labs Pomegranate Super Anti-Oxidant Cream.
This Pomegranate Super Anti-Oxidant Cream comes in a red box, with a picture of pomegranate arils (or seed casings). The container is plastic and holds 1.7 ounces. Based on my usage of my previous face cream made by the same company, the Pomegranate Super Anti-Oxidant Cream should last me for about nine months. That makes the hefty price of $28.50 a little easier to swallow.
The label states that this cream is a super-antioxidant with an ingredient called Himalayan Goji Berry. Pomegranates are native to Asia, and contain “super-antioxidant powers proven to help ward off free radicals”. Free radicals are stressers in the environment that can lead to cancer and other diseases. The label also states that Pomegranate Super Anti-Oxidant Cream can help resist the attack of “environmental aging”.
They state that after just four weeks of use, this cream will improve the skin’s barrier strength, skin tone and improve the sinks radiance as well. The directions say to apply it to the “skin” (I use it as a face cream), in upward and outward strokes.
The container did not have one of those seals under the lid, but the lid itself had a seal on the outside to assure me it had never been opened or tampered with. This cream is very soft, smooth, and rich, with just a light sweet scent that is not very noticeable. It has a light tan color, and is extremely easy for me to apply with little effort.
As I blend this rich Pomegranate Super Anti-Oxidant Cream to my dry and aging face, it absorbs quickly and easily, it does not leave redness on my face, and it does not leave a greasy or oily sheen behind. I use this cream in the evening before going to bed, and it works well as a night cream. I also apply it in the morning, as I have dry skin on my forehead and cheeks. I feel it does an excellent job of adding moisture to my skin, and I am impressed that the fourth ingredient is aloe leaf juice.
It also contains healthy ingredients such as shea butter, lemon peel oil, ginger root oil, goji fruit extract, blueberry fruit juice (blueberries also contain anti-oxidants), pomegranate fruit juice, limonene, gentian root extract, grape seed extract, and a few more super healthy ingredients. If the anti-oxidants work as advertised, Pomegranate Super Anti-Oxidant Cream is a good value. I would buy this cream again just based on its ability to moisturize my dry skin.
