Germany-based Studio Botanic Cosmetics prides itself on an all-natural approach to skincare, harnessing the power of nature and leaving out harsh and unnecessary ingredients. Staying true to its brand motto “less is more”, Studio Botanic has launched an old favourite Cold Cream with a modern take on the original recipe. Refined, optimised and composed of high-quality olive oil, rose petal extract, glycerin, shea butter, avocado and peppermint oil. All working together to keep the skin soft and supple, along with vegan waxes which naturally improve the skin’s protective function.
Studio Bontanic Cold Cream is so versatile and can be used not only on the face but also on the hands, lips or wherever you feel your skin needs a little extra care and is a must for the handbag. Keep it with you, especially when out and about in harsh wind and weather for topical application. If you were wondering where the name “Cold Cream” originates from it simply means “Cold” because of the cooling sensation experienced when applied to the skin. No real surprise there.
Cold Cream is a traditional product with a long history, in fact, it was being used as far back as the 2nd century AD.
Extract of Provence rose gives a delicate, mild fragrance that calms, balances and regenerates. Oil of peppermint has a slightly cooling effect and stimulates blood circulation.
Essential oils are so discreetly used in Studio Botanic Cold Cream that they keep their secret whilst unfolding their effect, combining a traditional recipe with scientific findings and innovative approaches to create the special formulation.
An old, proven and appreciated product that has not only improved with our new formulation but ensures the history and tradition of Cold Cream continues.
I love the simple, unisex white metal packaging, perfect for both men and women as a daily all-rounder with its pleasant, but mild scent. Apply with fingertips for a nourishing skin treatment, and let it soothe away any dryness or inflammation you may have. Inherently, a Cold Cream is richer in consistency than a regular moisturiser and almost has the feel of an ointment. The fast-absorbing formula isn’t dissimilar to that of the Studio Botanic hand cream I tried recently which keeps some uniformity between the two products.
If you intend on applying makeup following application then you’ll not find any issues when using the product as a makeup base. I have a drier skin and found it works best for me with a second application. The first to moisturise, allow to absorb then apply a second layer for a little extra hydration before going ahead with my usual base products.

Love how simple the packaging is
So lovely isn’t it! Looks quite chic I think. Thanks lovely x
seems like the perfect cream for when our skin needs a bit extra care and pampering.
It is, it’s so handy with so many uses. No nasties either so there’s nothing not to love!
I can remember my mum using cold cream back in the day! I’d definitely give it a try. x

Ah, a few have said they remember their mum using a Cold Cream. My mum was always an Olay fan. It’s nice to try a traditional formula for a change! x
From the packaging it looks like a toothpaste.
Ohh, do you think? Now you mention it I can see what you mean! I agree, it does actually. Definitely a lovely Cold Cream though x
I’ve not heard of these guys before but agree with you about the packaging- it’s so sleek. I love brands that are pro-natural products so really should give these guys a try!
