Sothys Hydra-Smoothing Mask $45.40


Love this mask. Does what is says, smooths and hydrates and makes skin look dewy. Especially if you use it after Sothys W. Cleansing Cream. The smell is light and softly perfume-y, they have their own signature sothys smell that is very luxurious. This is a staple for me to re-moisturize skin, especially after using a lot of acne medications and benzoyl peroxide face wash.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel


I enjoyed this product. The texture is light and thin, like water. It applies nicely, has that Neutrogena brand scent and absorbs well. It is a very light moisturizer. It goes on well under makeup and other skincare products. All in all, it did not give me that special glow I was looking for. But, it does what it says and it is well priced. Has anyone else tried this one or have a great one to recommend?

Chanel UV Essentiel Daily Defense Sunscreen Anti-Pollution SPF 50


This is a magical chanel experience. The cream is light, fluidy and soft. You can feel is hydrate and moisturize as you apply it. It does not leave a tacky texture like the lower priced sunscreens. It is heavily scented with the chanel perfume-y scent, which I really like. Plus it is SPF 50. Does not interfere with makeup application, and skin is left with a smooth, hydrated texture. I highly recommend this. Any one else?


Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer Night

On the good side, it smells lovely, and moisturizes very well. It is a heavier moisturizing cream, but it absorbs fairly well and leaves a soft, smooth, hydrated texture on your face – especially by morning. That being said, I did not notice any improvement in skin quality or fine/expression lines. All in all, if you want a nice moisturizer that is affordable and smells nice, I recommend this. It is nice to know there is some retinol in it too.

CVS Accelerated Wrinkle Repair SPF 30


I bought this product as a cheaper alternative to Neutrogena. It applies well enough, but the applied product does feel a little tacky, even though I know it has sunscreen, so some tackiness is expected, I did not love the feel. As a moisturizer it is okay, it does it’s job although it is not incredibly luxurious to the touch or hydrating. I did not notice any improvement in skin appearance. Overall, I do not recommend.

Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer

Kate Sommerville Oil Free Moisturizer


My favorite moisturizer ever. It does exactly what the name says. Moisturizes without oil. It also does not leave a gritty or sticky texture. It absorbs perfectly and quickly, gives an instant glow and is not heavy or greasy. It is light but incredibly effective. Very softening and hydrating. Love!
