Pestlo Panthemide Cream Review
This post contains affiliate links.
As I get older, I appreciate a good moisturizer more and more. Locking in hydration is important for all skin types, from dry to oily (mine is combination). One of the moisturizers in my current arsenal is Pestlo Panthemide Cream. It promises to nourish all skin types and has a short (15 items) ingredients list.

How to use:
Apply to face and neck at the end of your routine
If using in the morning, follow with sunscreen
Pestlo Panthemide Cream has a pleasant texture and a faint scent of pine. My skin absorbs it quickly, without stickiness or oiliness. The tube is metal.
This has been a lovely addition to my moisturizer options (yes, I like to have a few, since my skin doesn’t act exactly the same way every day). I mostly use Pestlo in the evenings. As it keeps getting warmer, SPF is usually enough of a moisturizer for me for the daytime. But in the Fall and Winter, I can see myself benefitting from Pestlo Panthemide Cream in the mornings as well.
The faint scent of pine surprised me at first (I guess reading the ingredients list did not immediately make me think it will actually smell like pine), but I’m used to it now. It’s not strong and doesn’t linger, so it’s not a big deal either way.
Overall, I like the cream. It makes my skin soft and supple without any stickiness or other unpleasant side effects. I’m not sure how I feel about the metal tube (are those supposed to be more eco friendly than plastic?), because sometimes it’s hard to get the last bits out as the product gets close to done. I’m not quite there yet, so we will see.
I have even applied it to my hands a few times, because all the sanitizing isn’t doing them any favors, and noticed a softer, smoother skin. I think this brand is worth a try, and I am already eyeing their other products.
