Excellent skin cream. Light yet extremely hydrating and nourishing.

I started using the Defense & Repair creme upon the suggestion of my naturopathic doctor. At first I wasn't sure I would tolerate it due to very sensitive and eczema-prone skin. I started slowly, applying only to my forehead for a few days and then started using it all over my face. After several weeks of getting used to the creme, I started to use the Defense & Repair Oil from the same line. It felt SO nourishing, yet lightweight, not sticky at all. My skin just soaked it right up. Most recently I also added in the Elixir as a first step in this trio.

I love this creme!

I live in Minnesota, but first bought the creme when I came across your shop in San Francisco. I have been mail ordering it because it is a unique product with all natural ingredients. Many cremes make my face break out, but this one feels great, is nourishing and supposedly works to fight sun damage. I like to spend time in the outdoors, so this is perfect for me. Thanks!

My new favorite

I decided to try the Ombra Creme since I was traveling to Joshua Tree. I put this on everyday I was there and loved knowing that my skin was protected and nourished. I got a little red but that quickly turned into a tan. Can’t wait to put this creme on again!


I really appreciate the time and effort that has gone into making this creme. The products I have tried thus far feel very energized and alive with nutrients that have been helpful to my skin. I really appreciate the purity of ingredients and the care that goes into making this.

Great product

I have been using this for quite a while now and love it . Have gotten many compliments on the healthy look of my skin . One of the things I love is the great golden color it adds to my fair skin !!! Use it daily all year . Only negative comment is I Do Not like the new packaging . The bottles having e colorful logo was not only prettier but made it easiy to grab off my shelf without having to read through all my Benedetta products to find the right one . I really hope you’ll change it back !!
