We in honor of the recent snow in my area, I thought this post was appropriate!
Not only do I have combination skin AND sleep with a fan, but I also do not have any kind of humidifier whatsoever-- and thus this winter has been drying out my skin. (Oh no!)
To the rescue? The Body Shop's Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream!! ($18.50)
Here's some info, according to the website:
Best if you want to: Give your skin a luminous, healthy glow with a nourishing daily moisturizing cream that contains light-diffusing particles to help minimize the appearance of fine lines.
How it works:(*Head's up* It does not contain SPF.)
- Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that moisturizes and helps to protect against premature aging and environmental aggressors.
- Community Trade shea butter moisturizes and helps to soften and refine skin.
- Super-fine mica minerals diffuse light to create a bright, illuminated complexion.
After seeing this product in a magazine, I decided to try it out. I used the normal face lotion before, but it was during the summer and it got too heavy for me. I remember playing with this before though and liked that it had a luminizer in it. Yay!
Time for some pics:
Here it is not rubbed-in-- it's a light pink~
Applied to the right side~ the reflection from the mica is in the pink family.
See? Luminous without being glittery- and this was after I gave it time to soak in. Nice!
Extra tidbit, too: if you do decide to get this, be sure it's the *illuminating* one-- they have another jar that is Vitamin E with SPF that looks exactly the same!
What kinds of moisturizers do you use? How important is SPF to you? Do you look for multi-tasking products?
Until next time~
