Back To Basics: My Everyday Moisturizer
My whole teenage life I struggled with moisturizers. I was always on a mission to find something that was affordable, but also something that really made my skin feel good. I am also very picky with what I put on my face; I hate the feeling of a thick moisturizer that does not absorb quick enough and I cannot stand a strongly-scented moisturizer.
My all time favorite, go-to, ride-or-die moisturizer is Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer, a replenishing moisturizer that has no harsh chemicals, artificial dyes or perfumes...and it is full of skin-loving vitamins!
As I have mentioned in the past, I have combo skin. Meaning my skin is dry and flakey on occasion, but also oily. Which is part of the reason this product quickly became my must-have
Despite it called being a “rich” moisturizer, it is not a thick-based lotion. It absorbs very quickly and leaves my skin soft, with no greasiness at all! I have been using this product for years without even one issue.
A few recommendations when using this moisturizer... I find you get the most out of it when you exfoliate first. This removes any dry skin, dirt, oil, left over makeup, etc. This also allows the product to go directly to your skin.
I also use this before applying foundation. My face tends to dry out when applying foundation without a moisturizer before and this product is perfect for just that.
Lastly, while I tend to apply this product in the morning, I would not recommend it as a night time moisturizer. I like my nighttime products to be a little richer!
Something that I know that we can all agree is a plus is the price and convenience of this product. This moisturizer is sold at pretty much every drug-store, convenience, store out there (and Amazon) for those days you feel too lazy to make an errand run...GUILTY.
The product is low in price, easily attainable and gives me everything I need in a moisturizer and much more. Ditch your high-priced face moisturizer and give this a try instead!
