Oh it is so brisk outside this morning. Did ya hear we had a little snow over the weekend? Listen 8 inches of snow in October is absurd in New York just so you know.
Who pissed off Mother Nature?
As I brace for the weather to get even colder I’m starting to rotate my lotions and potions. My gel moisturizers that I love for Summer wearin’ are heading to the back of my stash and I’m starting to haul out the big guns like Badger Balm Evolving Body Care Massage Oil because my dry skin needs all the help it can possibly get.
I also got a tube of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant in the mail several weeks ago so I yanked it out to see if it needed to become apart of the “Muse’s Surivial Kit for Cold Winter Weather and the Defense Against the Undead”. No one wants dry skin while fighting off the undead dontcha know!
Lumene 5 Minute SOS Cream deserves a little ABBA Karaoke brought to you by yours truly!
If you’re as old as dirt aka my age you probably remember a little movie entitled Just the Way You Are, it included some azz shaking by Kristy McNichol to ABBA songs, SOS wasn’t one but I just wanted to give a shout out because someone needs to see about releasing that flick on DVD…I call for a re-watch. Feel free to reminisce with me.
Anyway, I’m in love with this moisturizer at the moment, Imma tell you all the cool details about it.
Gurl, my skin is on freak out mode lately. I don’t have issues with acne, break outs, etc…but I do have super dry, dull skin. Maintenance is the word here. I have to keep my hands on my skin 24/7 because if I let it go things start to get super scary around these parts.
Using a rich moisturizer in the day makes my skin shiny and oily looking. As in wanna fry an egg on my face? That’s why I normally stick to richer moisturizers in the evening and a lighter one in the day.
Much to my delight I got a sample of Proactiv Solution Oil Free Moisture and I actually like it. I say actually because Proactiv is the type of brand that I think of for problem skin solutions but this one can be taken advantage by anyone.
Proactiv Oil Free Moisture is an oil free moisturizer with an SPF 15. This is fragrance free and hydrates skin quite nicely without giving it an oily, greasy look or feel. The thing I like about the formula is the lighter texture that allows my skin to breath while it hydrates. Even my dry skin can get on board with this. If your skin is oily, acne prone, or just plain sensitive you’ll love how gentle this is as well!
I liked this one alot and can see it becoming a part of my daily regime in both the winter and summer months!
If you’re a Proactiv user I’d love to hear about some of your favorites do share them!
