Brodie Skin Care Recovery Phase Rehydration Cream review

Although I love winter and enjoy running when it’s cold, my skin most definitely doesn’t. If you’d asked me to list my winter running essentials 10 years ago, I’d have said a hi-visibility running jacket, gloves and a head torch. A sports specific moisturiser wouldn’t have featured.

I’m not sure if it’s age related, but for the last couple of years my skin has felt really dry during the winter, especially after I’ve been running.

As you can imagine I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to test out and review a sports moisturiser; Brodie Skin Care Recovery Phase Rehydration cream.

Now that I’ve been using the Recovery Phase Rehydration cream for several months, I feel that I’m definitely in a position to write a hopefully useful review.

What is Brodie Skin Care Recovery Phase Rehydration cream?

While exercise has many amazing health benefits, it can be tough on the skin. During periods of exercise, the amount of oxygen used by the body increases, raising the number of free radicals produced, potentially causing damage to the skin. The combination of heat, acidic sweat, oxidative stress and dehydration can result in dry, sore and sensitive skin.

Brodie Skin Care developed Recovery Phase Rehydration cream to help the skin recover quickly and effectively from the internal and external stresses following exercise.

The cream:

  • Is specifically designed to help your skin repair and recover after exercising.
  • Provides intense rehydration.
  • Promotes cell regeneration.
  • Balances your skins natural pH.
  • Cools, soothes and protects.

As a keen runner with incredibly sensitive and rapidly aging skin, the Recovery Phase Rehydration cream sounded perfect. After researching the potential benefits of the cream, I couldn’t wait to put it to the test.

The review process

As I’m a complete novice when it comes to skincare products and moisturisers, I decided to read the guidance Brodie Skin Care provided, and applied the Recovery Phase Rehydration cream immediately after my post-run showers for maximum absorption. I think it’s worth me highlighting that when it comes to applying this cream, less is more and a little goes a long way!

I was a little concerned that my overly sensitive skin would react to the cream. However, thanks to the natural ingredients my skin felt completely fine.

The Verdict

I’ve been using Brodie Skin Care Recovery Phase Rehydration cream at night for several months. My skin definitely feels a lot better and the dry patches on my face have more or less completely cleared up. The cream is suitable for all skin types as it isn’t fragranced and doesn’t contain any ingredients that could irritate the skin. I just wish that this product had been invented a few years earlier.

So thanks again to Brodie Skin Care for sending me a bottle of Recovery Phase Rehydration cream to test out and review. For more information on Brodie Skin Care please visit.

Brodie Skin Care Recovery Phase Rehydration Cream is available from Brodie Skin Care and selected online retailers and has a RRP of £17.95. I personally think that this is amazing value for money.

**Full disclosure: I was sent a bottle of Brodie Skin Care Recovery Phase Rehydration Cream for free in return for a review. I did not receive any payment for this review. As always all opinions are my own**

    I get such sore skin in the winter- I try to keep my skin as covered as possible but when it gets cold it just goes red and sore, and then when I get back into the warm is stings. I’ve tried a few different creams and I try to put some on before I go out too, but I don’t always remember.

      My skin is terrible at the moment. I’ve noticed that my stomach gets really cold when I’m running and then feels quite itchy when I start to warm up again. Since writing this review, I don’t think I’ve ever remembered to put cream on before I head outside.
