Moisturizing Skincare Recommendations for Drier Skin

moisturizing products for drier skin

Lord knows I have drier skin so I though I’d recommend moisturizing products for drier skin types. You know I went to the Chanel counter last year to look at skincare and the rep told me I had combination skin. I seriously felt like I won the lotto when she told me that even if I did feel she completely missed the mark because lord knows anything is better than drier skin.

Drier skin ages faster and I totally think it is one of the more high maintenance skin types. Struggling with shine and oil? Be HAPPY about that because you’ll likely look younger longer.

We dry skin folk end up looking like a dried up raisin by 40!

So here’s a list of some recommended moisturizing products for the drier skin ladies and lads out there.


Some of the Best Facial Primers I’ve Tried

Best Facial Primers

What is it Napoleon Perdis says? It’s a crime not to prime! True story…if you want the most flawless complexion you best be prepping yourself well prior to ANY makeup application.

Primers not only help to create a barrier between your skin and your makeup, which by the very way means a longer wear for your foundation, but also they act to blur the appearance of minor imperfections perhaps pores or fine lines or uneven skin texture and even in some cases hydrate skin so that your makeup with ease on down the road more easily during application.

Needless to say primer is something everyone should indulge in. Choosing the best facial primer for your skin type is the first step in creating a lasting relationship with a good facial primer but I’m sure you’ll run into more than one to love.

These are Some of the Best Facial Primers I love and use daily.


Benefit Lemon Aid Still As Awesome As Ever

Benefit LemonAid

I took the liberty of stocking up on Benefit Lemon Aid during the Sephora VIB Event because lord knows I can’t do without it. It’s one of the few products I’d need a lifetime supple of if the zombie plague hits, it’s a staple product I use daily and never ever do I skip out I applying, it’s the product I’d mourn, cry, and have a funeral for if Benefit should ever decide to discontinue it (god forbid!).


Top Product On My Sephora FF List

One of the most common question I get asked around this time of the year is what are the top products on my Sephora Friends & Family list. I’ll be honest I don’t have a ton on my list at the moment for myself and most is for friends and family.

However, I’ll probably redeeming that shortly as I plan to take advantage of the sale by restocking on essentials and skincare.

But there is one product on my list that I’ll be hauling two of (maybe three) when the sale rolls around (the sale is happening November 7-11th).
