My skin is actually harder to maintain during spring time. My seasonal allergy is the culprit of my dry and dull skin around my nose and cheek areas. Those who are suffering from their allergy, I feel you guys! :( It's a serious matter to have congested nose and itchy eyes. I blow my nose frequently which irritates and dry my skin and therefore I need to moisturize my face more than usual! Thankfully, there are products I could use to help me fight this "dryness" caused by this allergy. Luckily, none of these products broke me out. Even though I had few pimples, I'm pretty sure it was cause by hormonal imbalance due to the red army that comes every month exclusively to women (you know what I mean!) and due to stressed from having my finals. Anyway, enough of my blabbers (lol). let's get on these products!
NeoStrata Moisture Infusion Hydrating Cream 50ml $31 CAD is an excellent moisturizer. I needed a new moisturizer that is more effective than what I previously had because my face is drier at the moment. This moisturizer is very effective, dryness no more! It's more expensive than your average moisturizer but it really works well on moisturizing the face. I like to try new moisturizer whenever I finish a bottle or a jar and this one was luckily a good choice. While this is good for the current season, I would need to find a lighter moisturizer for the summer because this cream feels quite heavy on the skin. I got this at a drug store but I am not sure if this is available internationally.
Now let's talk about the infamous Josie Maran's Pure Argan Oil 15ml $20CAD. Is it worth it? I absolutely think so! The packaging is brilliant, you can control the amount you need for your face because of the dropper. Sometimes, I mix this with my NeoStrata moisturizer and it gives my skin the right amount of hydration. Don't be scared that it's an oil, not all oil products would break you out. I have been using this for a month now almost everyday and it didn't break me out. It just leaves my skin smooth and radiant.
I luckily got some sample size of these Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair skin cares with a purchase of a foundation. Even though I've only used them for a matter of three weeks, I've seen some results, hyperpigmentation on my face seems to be lighter. I don't even use them everyday as I alternately use the Advance Night Repair Serum and Josie Maran Argan Oil. The eye cream is also quite nice, it does the job of moisturizing my under eye area. Every time I use these products , my skin seems so bright in the morning. I wish the prices of these products are less expensive because I would buy them in a heartbeat!
Have you guys tried any of these products? Let me know what's your favourite in your skin care! I would love to know! :)
