You might not have heard of Tara Walker’s Dream. I hadn’t until I started chatting to them on twitter a few months back. Perhaps it’s because they’re based in the Cayman Islands. How fabulously exotic!
I was offered their Radiance Enhancing Dream Creme to trial and see what I thought of it. I figured it would be pretty interesting to review a product that I’d heard nothing about. It’s pretty rare that we’re in the position to get to grips with a brand from scratch with no preconceptions.
Before I even get in to the actual product, I want you to scroll down and just look at the packaging. I don’t think I’ve ever had such a beautifully packaged product in my hands.
Even the parcel it came in was perfectly designed. The pastel painted capsule arrives covered in a crisp paper slip with all the ingredients and relevant information listed on the back.
With this removed, the case embossing on the capsule is revealed. Real attention to detail has been paid here. The inner lip of the capsule is a shimmery pink that complements the pastel outer. I’ll be keeping this long after the product has ran out.
Inside, there’s a strip of 5 resealable multidose tubes – that means the end of the product is as fresh as the first application. Clever.
The ingredient list (click the link to view more) is pretty epic because the base of each product is the 100+ botanical concentrate serum. My eyes whizz through the list reading nothing but amazing ingredients. No parabens, no chemicals, no additives, no sls, no propylene glycol.
The creme its self is gently fragranced with natural goodies and despite it’s rather thick consistency, soaks in to the skin quickly. It feels really luxurious.
I’ve used the radiance creme for a month now and I’m a little smitten (as you can no doubt tell). My usual Clarins Beauty Flash balm has been ousted. This is better by far. I feel like I’ve regained my healthy skin, pre-poorly. It’s smoother, brighter, happier skin.
If you fancy getting your hands on some, it retails for £40 on the website. So far, I don’t think there are any large retailers, but I’m fairly sure you’ll be hearing much more of this brand.
