Once oily skinned, I am getting as parched as a desert as I get older. I now can’t even dream of leaving my house or drifting off to sleep without a full moisturizing regime on both my face and body. Here are my favorites products to turn you from ashy to glowingly moisturized:
MyChelle Deep Repair and MyChelle Pumpkin Renew – MyChelle is another TGATP favorite brand and I also use their products every day. I love everything about this company – the product, the fresh packaging, and the philosophy behind it. I alternate these two moisturizers as my night routine. The Deep Repair improves skin smoothness and prevent moisture loss while the Pumpkin Renew is a blend antioxidants and reparative peptides that protect cellular health and maintain hydration.
Intelligent Nutrients Anti-Aging Serum – Due to mission of the company that all products be 100% certified organic coupled with the no-fuss but still lovely packaging, anything Intelligent Nutrients always has a place on my beauty lists. I use this product on the days my skin is particularly dehydrated for instant relief. It removes the red, relights the brightness, plumps to unline and firm, and makes elasticity bounce back for a what-did-you-do-differently radiance.
Om Pumpkin Seed Renew Serum – Mad for this serum that hydrates without being greasy. The Pumpkin Seeds are rich in Omega 3 & 6 that help reduce wrinkles and fine lines while Rosehip Seed diminishes age spot, scars, and sun spots and the Meadowfoam provides deep hydration and locks in moisture. The scent is absolutely heavenly as well!
Moisture Tints Tinted Moisturizer – I discovered this product at a recent preview and I now can’t live without it! It’s lightweight yet gives a nice sheer coverage. On the weekends, I go with this and a little eyeliner and lip gloss for a light errand running face.
Prescriptives Hope In A Jar – This award-winning, lightweight daily moisturiser hydrates and provides antioxidant protection while improving skin texture and tone, leaving it smooth and radiant. I used to live for the tinted version and really wish they would bring that back!
Balanced Guru Ageless Serum – Met this new company over the summer at a Beauty Press event and have been in love with them every since. This serum of Rose, Helichrysum, and Neroli combined with Rosehip, Evening Primrose, Argan and Jojoba oils, helps to increase your skin’s elasticity and firmness.
L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil – Enriched with almond oil and Cameline oil, the Almond Supple Skin Oil softens and tightens the skin, leaving it feeling toned and more supple. I am NEVER without this product and use it after my shower in the morning and also in the evening before bed. Use it during and after pregnancy or when dropping weight as it’s also great for reducing stretch marks. And the smell? Wondrous!
Bliss Body Butter – This is another product I just can’t get enough of. My favorite is the Blood Orange which can lift your spirits on even the gloomiest of days. I just scored a holiday set that includes full size tubes of the Blood Orange, Grapefruit and Aloe, and Lemon and Sage as a birthday present. At just $32 at Sephora, it’s the perfect gift for every special gal on your list so snap one up now.
Body Shop Body Butter – A longtime TGATP favorite, this year the focus is on Honey. I keep my tube near the sink and use it every time I was my hands.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream – Simply the best hand cream in the world. This is always in my bag. Enriched with 20% Shea Butter, this super-creamy balm penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturize hands. Honey, almond extracts and coconut oil are blended with Shea Butter to leave your hands soft and smooth with no oily traces, and can be applied as often as needed. This is a must-have for every beauty addict!
Balanced Guru Soothe Me Slowly Body Oil – The founders of Balanced Guru believe, and TGATP agrees, that a daily self massage will increase your well-being. Consisting of Baobab, Jojoba and Avocado are rich oils to and . Sesame and Argan to balance your skin this oil is divine. The Lavender, Orange and Geranium essential oils work together to create a heavenly scent.
VitaBath Moisturizing Lotions – This thick, but non-greasy Moisturizing Lotion contains vitamins A and E and rich emollients like Shea Butter and Aloe Vera to moisturize. The long-lasting formula is also enriched with Rosemary Extract and Amino Acids to help nourish and replenish skin’s moisture. There are tons of new scents including: Cupcake Couture in Vanilla and Pink Frosting, In Bloom in Lily and Asian Orchid, Fruit Fanatic in Grapefruit and Pomegrante/Blood Orange and Spa Day in Lavender/Camomille and Green Tea/Sage. But I am still mad for Spring Green, the original scent, which was one of the first beauty products I ever used!
