When winter comes, my skin gets hella dry! I mean dry face, dry lips, dry ankles everything! Grey is the new black for me! I have combination skin on my face, which is definitely new. I used to just be oily but now I have an oily t-zone with dry patches on my cheeks and around my mouth.
I have noticed the best way to get my skin more balanced i.e making the oily areas less oily and the dry areas less dry is to use a good moisturiser. I learnt this from my makeup artist. I used to avoid moisturising my face because I was scared that it will make my face produce even more oil, but that didn’t help my skin texture at all. In winter, I try to find a moisturiser that is not too thick and heavy on my skin to avoid clogging my pores, but it needs to be moisturising enough to prevent dry patches. The struggles I have gone through to find this moisturiser! I thought it this moisturiser only existed in my dreams!
I popped into my local Boots (UK Drugstore) to pick up a few essentials and I wandered (as you do!) to the Estee Lauder concession. It was calling me! I swear! Anyways, when I go there I noticed this new creme for hydration and moisture, and when I tried it, I noticed that it made my skin feel so smooth and moisturised. I just had to get it.
Estee Lauder Hydrationist Maximum Moisture Creme
You guys know that when it comes to skincare especially moisturisers I dont mind spending my hard earned coins, as long as it does the job. I swear by the Estee Lauder DayWear moisturiser for the summer and I find that a little goes a long way with these creams.
When I tried this Hydrationist cream, I loved the fact that it was not greasy and sunk into my skin really quickly. I notice that the texture of my skin improved when I started using it. It definitely helped to balance out my combination skin. To all my ladies with dry skin, they have a thicker and richer version of this creme, which is more suitable for your skin type.
The texture is very light and it is easily absorbed by your skin, which I love. I also love the fact that the main ingredient is water in the normal/combination cream, because it is great for hydrating your skin.
I have already started to see a difference in my skin since I started to use this cream. I am trying to use it more consistently, especially because it is getting colder. I love that my skin feel soft and supple after I use it.
I wish it was less expensive or there were samples available. When I asked the sales consultant, she said that they didn’t have any samples but if I didn’t like it up to 14 days after purchase, I could return it which was not bad.
DOES IT GET THE TRL STAMP OF APPROVAL?
Yes, it does.
