Battling Dry Skin: Artistry Essentials Moisture Plus Review

Don’t ask me why I’m purchasing skincare products from Quixtar/Amway because I really won’t have an answer for you.

The good news is even though this particular product I am about to review for you is possibly made by and disturbed by a subdivision of Amway it still really does work.

Unreal right?

Who would have thought skincare from Amway had the potential for greatness!

Gasp!

Anyway what am I going on about?

I purchased a tiny bottle of Artistry Essentials Moisture Plus from Quixtar.com after reading a review about it on another blog (I’d give credit to that blogger but god knows where I read about it! Sorry ’bout that).

The review raved about how great this was for refreshing dry skin and it couldn’t be more right! It’s pretty darn amazing at making my skin sigh in delight!

What exactly is it?

It’s a moisturizing oil that comes in a tiny bottle with a dropper. You simply take the dropper out and squeeze about 5-10 drops in your hand and pat this gently onto your face. I don’t actually pat. Sounds weird but I give myself a little bit of a facial massage with this rubbing it in nicely. The formula is pretty oily so if you’re skin is oily/combo stay AWAY! If you happen to suffer from dry patchy cheeks or dryness on your forehead this be for you! It virtually cleared up my the dry patchy problem on my cheeks and my forehead is no longer flaking up. Yay!

I must warn you if you’re sensitive this may cause a breakout so beware prior to use. I started out with about 2 drops and I instantly experienced a little bit of a breakout but I gradually introduced my face to it and after a while my skin was loving the added moisture this gave to it.

This advertises as a product you can use over makeup but they must have been delirious when they wrote that because unless you want to look like a beacher babe tanning with baby oil on Venice beach I’d say don’t attempt applying during the day over your makeup.

I use this as PM treatment ONLY and would not attempt it during the day as a touch up nor as an AM treatment simply because it stays oily and wet a little bit before drying down. Unless you like going around with an oily face I’d avoid using it during your AM skincare regime.

I’m not using this regularly but only when I feel my skin may need a bit of a pick up and feels a size or two tighter due to the cold weather. At the moment Spring is upon us and Summer to come shortly so I’m doubtful I’ll make much use of this but it’s an excellent treatment for the cold Winter weather months!

I’ve been using about 10 drops or so a night after using my regular night cream and I’ve noticed that I wake up with a very beautiful, soft completion!

This is .49oz in size and costs $19.50 USD. The price is a bit off for a size so small but the bottle should last a good long time since you need so very little of the product!

All and all I’m enjoying this for the days my skin is whining about how it needs a bit more moisture to be on it’s best behavior!

    I found this with my mum and tried it. I applied it to my whole face and it was very oily so I thought I used it wron but I guess I used it correct. After I used it it caused my forehead to itch a bit. I think it should work fine. How often should I use this?
