Empties


Just yesterday I finished up two super moisturizing products. Here in Minnesota I feel that we can't be sure when winter's grip will be truly over, so it doesn't surprise me that my skin was happy to have these into April.

1. Weleda Skin Food cream $13.79

I've had this cream for a while now and was more than ready to repurchase another tube to have on hand. This cream is pretty thick, and is great to use for hands, elbows, and knees. The directions say it should be used sparingly on the face, but I'm more liberal with it. I've found that my skin isn't as combination as it was when I was a teenager (especially in fall and winter), so I've been favoring products that are for normal to dry skin more and more. I've been applying this in the morning mixed with some Aveeno face sunscreen because I've been finding that my skin feels dehydrated as the day goes on. I will even apply this over BB cream/CC cream/ liquid foundation to highlight the high points of my face. My skin just drinks this up leaving it nice and dewy, but the thick texture may be too much for some especially with oily skin. However, how can you not be tempted to try a tube for the price and this post that calls it, "a natural LaMer".

2. Clinique moisture surge intense cream $38.50-$52

I purchased this when I was looking for a new nighttime moisturizer. There are different creams in this line based on your skin type and the fact that this one was for 'dry- combination' skin hooked me. Overall, it made my skin feel hydrated, soft, and plumped. I also liked the gel-cream texture because it still absorbed well and wasn't so thick that it would leave a residue on my pillow. 
I enjoyed using this, but now that I have Belif's aqua bomb (mentioned here) I don't think I'll repurchase this again soon. The main reason because I feel like the the aqua bomb is more hydrating even with its gel texture, and the Belif cream doesn't have that slightly chemical fragrance that many Clinique products have.
