Skin Care Favorites: Moisturizers

Hey I am back with the 6th installment of my skin care favorites series (bare with me just one more group left!!)

As always if you want a quick run down of the series, check out the main post here.

So there has been an update in regards to my favorite moisturizers. For a while, I was using Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Day Cream until I started to realize it was breaking me out, terrible. What I didn’t know was that the main ingredient was Rose Hips oil, which I am terrible sensitive too. So I cropped it out of the photo. I did receive a new moisturizer from Philosophy in which I will discuss in another post.

First up as my favorite is the Lancôme Énergie De Vie The Light Lotion-in-Oil available at Sephora

  • Hydrates and mattes the skin.
  • Super light, gel in texture.
  • When used after the Énergie De Vie cleansing oil, it provides extra hydration and softness to the skin.
  • There are two different kinds, one for dull skin (Dullness Relief & Energy Recharge Daily Lotion) and (Daily Aqua-Gel, which I think is similar to the light lotion in oil)

Next up is Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream available at Sephora

  • It is my favorite!!
  • Super, lightweight cream that gives a cooling sensation to the skin.
  • Perfect for normal, combination, dry and sensitive skin.
  • Contains two forms of hyaluronic acid and tamarind extract to help plumb and hydrate the skin. Papaya enzyme to smooth and exfoliate. Alpha-arbutin and giant white bird of paradise extract to help brighten hyperpigmentation spots and illuminate the complexion.
  • Can be used a few different ways
    • On top of makeup to seal in hydration and radiance
    • To increase brightness, layer on top of Good Genes
    • To increase hydration, use on top of Luna Sleeping night oil

Next is Ole Henriksen Sheer Moisturizer available at Sephora

  • An oil-free moisturizer thats good for normal, combination, and dry skin. Though I have oily skin myself, I find it works well on my skin.
  • Contains a multi-fruit AHA complex to help even the skin tone and smooth out the skins texture.
  • Contains
    • Vitamin C to brighten, boost collagen, and firms the skin. Also provides antioxidant protection from the enviornmental damage.
