I have no clue what is going on in the universe, but my skin is changing! I’m an oily girl through and through, but for the first time ever,
my skin is super dry! Every day I catch myself in a mirror, I see dry, flaky skin! What the freak? Luckily I had a few items around the house for dry skin. In fact, these are the only items that I had in the house for dry skin! They’ve been lounging around my mother’s bathroom for months. Here’s what’s been helping me out!
Make Up For Ever Serum ($38) astounded me the first time I heard Dany Sanz talk about it! It’s so packed with amazing stuff that it hydratesyour skin for hours at a time. In fact, as the day goes on, your skin retains more moisture. Since my skin was super oily at the time, I gave the bottle to my mother. But this random flaky skin of mine has me using it, and since then everything is so much more tame. There are SO many positive effects for using this stuff! Just a bit of this serum gives you a 520% increase in hydration in only 15 minutes. Seriously, this little bottle is astonishing. Read more about the miracle juice here!
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief ($34)is a gel like moisturizer that completely hydrates. Just rubbing a little on your hand shows your skin just how amazing it really is! Truth be told, it was the only moisturizer that I had in the house made for dry skin. (Although my mother has dry skin, she is old school, she uses the nearest body lotion no matter what is in it!) Just realized that in the product description, it says this is great for all skin types? Who knew?
You all know that I’m pretty big on all natural skincare, so using these products typically wouldn’t be the norm for me. I ran out of my Juice Beauty Cleansing Gel ($22) (and it’s out of stock at pretty much every Sephora in Maryland). The sales associate at Sephora told me about Boscia Clear Complexion Cleanser with Botanical Blast. She said it was all natural, but not organic like Juice Beauty. She also said it would compare the best to what I’ve already been using. I’ll give it a few weeks and let you know how it goes!
Note: The Clinique and Make Up For Ever products were sent as samples for me to review.
