Review of RODIAL Stemcell Super-Food Day Cream SPF15

Posted on September 23, 2014


Based out of London, RODIAL is a leading global brand with a huge celebrity following. All their women’s skincare products contain Pomegranate Ellagic Tannin, a natural anti-aging firming and collagen booster, combined with other breakthrough natural ingredients clinically tested to help improve skin health. We had a chance to review their Stemcell Super-Food Day Cream with SPF 15.

RODIAL-stemcell-super-food-day-cream-spf15-face-moisturizerThe Rodial day cream is an illuminating face moisturizer with SPF15 UV protection. Our women staffers were excited to try this product out because they are fans of other Rodial skin care products. And our male staffers were pleasantly surprised by the performance of the hydrating cream.

We found the texture of the cream to be very nice and smooth. It massaged easily into our skin. Our women staff found the consistency similar to that of a primer. It sealed in all the wrinkles and kept skin feeling smooth.

The key ingredient to the Rodial day cream is advanced stemcell technology from the PhytoCellTec Alp Rose. Alpine roses grow at altitudes of 1500 to 3000 meters. In these extreme weather environments, the roses adapt to the cold, harsh sun, and dry conditions. Stem cells harvested from the alpine rose help increase skin vitality by boosting epidermal regeneration and protecting skin from environmental stress factors. Other skin nourishment ingredients used are Rose Hip Seed Oil, Goji Berry, Wheat Germ Oil, and Pomegranate Extract.

Out staffers with very dry skin found that the Rodial day cream did not provide enough long-lasting moisturization unless they applied it fairly regularly throughout the day. So we do not recommend this product for people with dry skin. The product does provide SPF 15 sun protection but not enough for us to feel comfortably protected when walking outside in the sun.

Priced at $62 for 50 ml / 1.7 fl oz. the RODIAL Stemcell Super-Food Day Cream is a wonderful product for most people to try. We don’t rank it as the best day moisturizer with SPF protection but rather a product someone may want to try if they are switching face moisturizers.
