A'pieu Madecassoside Cream and Ampoule Review

Having psoriasis flare ups and being pregnanct is probably the worst combo. I have tried asking permission from my OB to allow me to use certain medicated creams as advised by mg dermatologist but she did not give her clearance. Presently, face has large red and scaly patches. My psoriasis patches are very obvious. The least I could do is to use skincare products that may help alleviate the redness and flakiness of my psoriasis patches. Two of the  products that I enjoyed using are from A'pieu - the Madecassoside Ampoule and Madecassoside Cream. I am almost finish with both products and luckily, I have a back up of the cream version. 

The key ingredients of these products are Centella Asiatica Leaf Water Extract which is known for its anti oxidant properties, helps in boosting collagen production, and has soothing/healing effects. These products are also infused with Niacinamide which is known for brightening dull skin and evening out the appearance of pores and uneven skin. Thankfully, both ingredients are safe to use during pregnancy.
The Madecassoside Cream is a cream gel hybrid making its consistency rich and balmy.  It may feel a bit siliconey but it gets easily absorbed by my dry skin. This cream moisturizes my skin immediately once applied. Since it has a siliconey texture, it preps my skin really well for makeup application. This has a slight herbal scent which I like. Before my pregnancy, I really enjoy using this as my daytime moisturizer. It works well on cold weather (tried it during the fall season in Korea) and also during hot humid days in Manila.  Now that I am pregnant with psoriasis flare ups, this helps a lot in soothing my flare ups. I notice that it somehow alleviates the redness and flakiness of my flare ups but sadly it does not totally eradicate my flare ups (I really need steroidal creams for medication).
The Madecassoside Ampoule has a watery consistency and does not have any scent. It feels very light and runny. Like the Madecassoside Cream, this helps soothes and calm my irritated skin. It is adds a bit of hydration but is not too moisturizing like the cream variant. I like using the cream and ampoule together especially on cooler days.
Overall, I really love the cream version of this product. As for the ampoule, I prefer ampouls that are more viscous because of my dry skin.

Can you recommend soothing moisturizers/ products? What are your favorites?

Godbless and keep safe!
