Pai Geranium and Thistle Rebalancing Day CreamReading this review on Pai Geranium & Thistle Rebalancing Day Cream will, hopefully, help all of you who have an oily, combination or prone to blemishes skin make out whether this organic day cream can be a good choice for clearing up your complexion and have a healthier and properly hydrated skin.

Actually, the last time I ordered products from Pai, I was in between selecting this product and their Avocado & Jojoba day cream but I ordered Pai geranium & thistle moisturizer.

You see, I have a prone to blemishes skin which with the use of the right products I can keep controlled but at that time I also wanted to try out the effectiveness of their more intensive hydrating cream.

Still, by trying out a lot of Pai products and being completely satisfied with them, I can have a more clear picture of this specific day cream which I am planning to try out probably within my next batch order.

Why is it Difficult to Find a Good Moisturizer for Combination and Oily skin?

From what I have learned, during the time I am running this blog, it is most of the times very difficult for people with oily and combination skin to find a good moisturizer that will absorb nicely into their skin, balance its oils naturally, moisturize it adequately and not cause any breakouts for the following reasons:

Most combination and oily skin care products focus on one of the two problems that people with those types of skin experience. While a few products might focus on the dry areas, most products focus on the excess oil and try to treat skin using harsh ingredients such as alcohol in order to reduce oiliness.

This often results in drying out the dry areas even more, and causing your sebum glands to produce even more oil in response to the drying of the skin. So, people even stop using a moisturizer because they can’t find that right product which can deal with all these issues their skin has.

A lot of skin care products use irritating harsh chemical preservatives to prolong the shelf life of their products. This results in irritating the skin, resulting in additional dryness and even acne breakouts. Also, keep in mind that dry skin is more sensitive to aging.

So, what is needed, in this case, is a gentle yet effective moisturizer which can balance and clear your skin while also calming it and hydrating it properly.

Pai skin care company claims that their Geranium and thistle rebalancing day cream can treat those dry patches while at the same time control the skin’s oiliness and balance it, keeping it away from blemishes.

What Is Different in Pai’s Approach?

Firstly, when it comes to various types of sensitive skin, Pai has a fame of creating really good quality and effective products with a lot of fans all over the world.

Their Geranium & Thistle moisturiser uses natural and organic ingredients to gently treat both the oily and dry skin areas while avoiding harsh chemical preservatives altogether.

This results in a gentler treatment of your skin that is less likely to get irritated.

For example, Geranium is a mild natural astringent which comes from a plant called Pelargonium odoratissimum. It is used to treat acne and oily skin but it is also interesting to see that its characteristics are good for balancing the dry skin as well.

Thistle has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, it removes the toxins from your body, giving your complexion a radiant and glowing look.

Pai also uses a variety of natural oils to help moisturize those dry areas, including jojoba oil which helps to clear congested pores. This balances and evens out your skin so the oily areas are less oily while the dry areas are less dry.
