Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer ($18) is my secret weapon against the polar vortex! I went to dinner with a friend last night and he said to me, “Iz, you’re always bitching about your dry skin but I can’t a single flaky area that you’re always whining about!”.
I know, that’s because Mario Badescu Buttermilk Moisturizer is on the case!
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion ($12) is one of those beauty budget facial moisturizers that makes you shake your head in wonder. I’ll be honest, I splurge on skincare! Especially facial moisturizers and eye creams. Most facial moisturizers I’ve purchased at the drugstore are all about fragrance with very little in the way of good for you ingredients. But the same can be said of high end skincare too.
That’s why CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion comes as a pleasant little surprise.
Avon Anew Vitale Night Cream is a new nightly moisturizer that’s promises 8 hours of sleep in a jar. This moisturizer is for dull, tired skin that needs a pick me up! Overnight it acts to fight dull, fatigue skin so your wake up looking lively and fresh!
You can see why I’m excited about this right? As I’m one of those people, without makeup, looks a bit dull and lackluster so an overnight moisturizer that fights that? Well, hell yes, I want to try it!
Curing patchy, dry facial skin has become my personal quest as I happen to have drier, patchy skin on my cheeks. I once had a Chanel SA tell me that I had combo skin. I was with my friend Jai at the time and she was telling me this and I gave him the shifty “What’s she smoking?” eye look. See, I’d have believed her if she had said as such in the Summer because I can get a little T-Zone oily fun in the warmer weather. But it was dead Winter!
I struggle with patchy, drier areas on my face a good deal but lately it’s worst. I told you about my itchy neck epidemic recently and finding a cure for that now here’s a way for curing patchy, dry facial skin for ya.
And it’s cheap as chips too!
Many of you know I’m a huge Clarins Flash Balm fan girl so of course, Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher intrigued me! Missha Misa Geumsul Vitalizing Finisher is actually a product you use after your primary skincare, in the AM, and prior to your makeup. So in a sense, it’s a lot like the way I use Clarins Flash Balm!
The general idea of the product is to create a base for makeup but also to sooth and treat tired looking skin and revitalize it with Ginseng extract. So it not only adds moisture but also keeps skin look bright and happy. Apparently it contains herbal oriental medication…but a quick look at the ingredients doesn’t reveal much (Ginseng extract, Squalene, Honey, Albiflora Root Extract, Prunus Mume Flower Extract, Cinnamomum Camphora (Camphor) Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Cnidium Officinale Root Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Angelica Keiskei Leaf/Stem Extract).
Let’s take a look!
