Is this Ultra Facial Cream really Ultra? #JoyalBeauty

Press Sample.  All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Ultra.  Mega.  These words, and ones like them get thrown around so much, they are starting to lose their meaning!  Is this Ultra Facial Cream really deserving of the moniker?

In this case, I think it is, at least for my skin.  I usually have to pile on the serums to get something this nutrient-dense.  This cream packs it in - and it's not rich or heavy, and didn't cause me to breakout!
Let's start with what isn't in this cream - no parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, silicones, mineral oils, sulfates, artificial fragrances, synthetic dyes, triclosan, PEG, TEA, DEA, or EDTA.  It's not tested on animals.
The ingredients are natural, and 71% organic.  And, there's all kinds of good stuff in there that do all kinds of good things for your skin.  I'm used to seeing Aloe and Jojoba Oil as base ingredients for natural moisturizers.  They are amazing on their own, but this cream also has all kinds of ingredients for everything from inflammation, boosting collagen, fighting acne, brightening, and healing.  I'm especially excited to see the use of Turmeric, which is a hot new skincare ingredient, known for its anti-aging properties of building collagen and helping maintain elasticity, as well as for fighting acne.
Let's give a round of applause to the bees, though, without whom this cream wouldn't be possible.  Made with Royal Jelly, Propolis, and honey that all come from bees, these ingredients are nutritional powerhouses.  Royal Jelly is packed with protein and amino acids.  Propolis contains all the known vitamins, and 14 out of 15 minerals; and honey is a humectant, drawing moisture in, as well as a natural antibiotic and anti-inflammatory.

Inspired by the Joyal Beauty packaging, I used Essie Reggae and Rum for the base color, and sponged on a combination of KB Shimmer Let's Not Coral and Pacifica Blushing Bunnies for the abstract flowers.
From the easy and opaque pump packaging, to the light formula, to the uplifting, yet subtle scent, I love using this cream.  In a time of year when oil is a-plenty on my face, my skin is clear, soft, and bright.  On a recent plane trip, I had to limit what skincare I brought, so I really relied on this cream to do almost everything - and it lived up to the 'Ultra' name!  Even going from humid Florida to arid Colorado, this cream kept my face looking its best.

For more information, or to purchase Joyal Beauty Timeless Skin Renewal Ultra Facial Cream, you can find them on their website, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or on Amazon, where this serum currently retails for $24.95.
