I suffer from very dry dehydrated skin…I get flakey, cracked sore patches which really sucks. But when the icy cold wind of winter blows across my face, it makes the pain even worse. Which means moisturising is a must for me! And I thought I would do a post on my fa oh rite products to help soothe my sore, dehydrated skin!
My ideal moisturiser is light, sinks in quickly and doesn’t necessarily feel like a thick cream. I have eczema, so have to apply thick cream a lot, so do not find it enjoyable. And I like to enjoy my skincare. So feel like they need to be products I enjoy using, and enjoy feeling/applying. I am super tactile and like the way things feel if that makes any sense. So gels or jelly consistencies really make me happy! Haha!
Clinique Moisture Surge Concentrate
What I love about this is that it feels like a cooling gel. I have sensitive skin, so struggle with burning, itching and irritation fairly frequently. However this, is highly moisturising, so my thirsty skin drinks this up like a puppy on a summers day! It is divine!
L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water
Similar to the previous moisturiser, I like gel, cooling skin care. And this is perfect for the summer when you feel super sweaty but should still moisturise! This also cools fairly matte, so makes you feel less sticky and sweaty too! So I used this alllll summer!
YourGoodSkin Balancing Skin Concentrate
Ok I’ll be honest…the first thing that attracted me to this product was the smell. It smelt slightly violety which is my FAVOURITE floral scent ever. But the tried it in Boots on the tested and it had a really lovely primer like consistency while still being super nourishing! And I was hooked! I love a moisturiser/primer product as a duo. They give me the perfect look for my skin. At least the one I desire anyway!
Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre
If I had to choose a favourite for the colder times of the year, when the harsh wind and temperature makes my skin crumble and crack…THIS is a God Send! It isn’t overly thick or sticky, but it is heavier than the previous products I have mentioned. But it isn’t heavy, I don’t do heavy. It just feels more nourishing! It also works under Makeup a DREAM! Which is perfect!
So those are my favourite moisturisers! Let me know what you like best in a moisturiser or if you have any suggestions for me!
Thank you for reading!
