Do you sometimes feel like finding the right moisturizer for your skin is as confusing as the right Pre-school (or organic baby food, or allergy free diaper, or total-body-covering prom dress) for your kids? We think so too. Luckily, Real Momma Tara investigated the latest and greatest in facials creams and lotions, to figure out what formula is best for you.
For Oily Skin:Â “I’ve been using the Priori Cellular Recovery Serum along with my daily moisturizer for a couple of weeks and I am really seeing results! [Moms with very oily skin can benefit from using this in place of daily moisturizer, to balance the skin]. I am turning the big 3-0 this year and have noticed lots of fine lines forming around my eyes. This serum has helped to minimize those lines, as well as giving my skin a healthy glow. I’ll definitely incorporate this product into my “anti-aging arsenal”!
For Sun Protection: “Hallelujah! A high SPF sunscreen that doesn’t look or feel oily and greasy! I have very, very fair skin and wear the highest SPF I can find, which usually means a thick, heavy sunscreen. La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Sunscreen Fluid is as light as an everyday moisturizer and is SPF 60! I wore this under my normal make-up and it felt and looked as light as a regular moisturizer. This product is a lifesaver for us fair-skinned girls, but is great for anyone who wants to protect their skin from the sun’s ultra-damaging rays. Another bonus: it’s water resistant and fragrance-free!”
For Anti-aging: “It might have been my imagination, but I really felt like I saw results the next morning! I loved that Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream is very moisturizing, but not oily. I have extremely dry sensitive skin and it responded very well to this cream. Regenerist seemed to minimize the fine lines around my eyes and my skin still felt moisturized by morning. I also love that Olay products are very affordable and can be purchased almost anywhere. I’d definitely give this cream two thumbs up and will be using it as part of my nighttime routine!”
