Hydration vs Moisturizing 💦

Despite water playing a major role in keeping our skin healthy, smooth & radiant, did you know there is actually a difference between moisturizing & hydration? They both ensure that our skin gets enough water to prevent dryness, dehydration, signs of aging, & environmental damage. It’s HOW moisturizers and hydrators accomplish this that makes the difference. 💜 Hydration focuses on the amount of water within your skin cells. Water within the skin cells is what results to having plumped skin with elasticity. When we apply a topical hydrator, we are infusing these skin cells with water to help improve the skin’s ability to absorb. 💦 On the flip side, moisturizing focuses on trapping and sealing in moisture from water. This helps build the skin’s protective barrier, prevent water loss & helps keep the skin soft and improves texture. 💦 So where does Lala Retro Whipped Cream fall? Lala is the perfect moisturizer as it locks in moisture and helps reinforce the skin’s acid mantel to protect the skin from environmental stressors. This moisturizer is perfect for the upcoming winter season to keep dry skin at bay as it is formulated with 6 African oils & a plant Ceramide complex. This cream moisturizer has a whipped texture that makes it light on the skin and helps absorb into the skin effortlessly. It never feels greasy, sticky or heavy. As with all of DE products, it is biocompatible so it is perfect to mix with your other DE favorites! My personal favorite combination is 1 pump Lala, 2 pumps B-Hydra, and 2 drops of Virgin Marula Oil for a quick nighttime routine. 💜 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream

This Saved my Dry Skin 💜☔️
I am all about luxury skincare!! Boy oh boy does this cream scream luxury! From the rich oils, to the packaging, to the heavy whipped texture.. I AM OBSESSED. I recently switched to this cream for the winter months because where I am gets very dry. I already struggle w dry flaky skin and find it hard to find a moisturizer that can actually meet my needs. Yes this was on the pricier side for sure, but baby my skin is worth it. Will I be repurchasing - YES! This will strictly be a winter season product for me, but wow it’s amazing for my thirsty skin! I’m thinking of switching to protini in the summer months, anyone recommend it? *Disclaimer - I do not support Drunk Elephant in the ways they treat not only their staff, but also their customers.*

The Trunk 4.0🎪🐘
🎪DRUNK ELEPHANT - The Trunk 4.0 This kit comes fully stocked with everything you need for a truly complete skincare routine & a swift getaway! 🛩☁️ I wouldn’t travel right now, even if you paid me. Covid numbers aren’t going down & I take these facts very seriously. Haven’t had contact with almost anyone since March, because I do have a neurological disease that could put me at risk. I can’t tell anyone what to do... but do I urge you to consciously protect strangers while protecting yourself & your loved ones. My condition is one often referred to as an “Invisible Illness”. Many people have health conditions that others don’t outrightly see. Most people think I’m completely able-bodied unless I’m seen limping or having convulsions. I’ve only had this condition since 2014, so it’s been an adjustment & learning experience for my own prejudgements as well. 🧳My bf really likes the Monos locking suitcase & encouraged me to purchase this while the big Sephora sale was going on. He has to travel for his essential-work sometimes & this is a perfect carry-on size! It’s just as wide & deep as the ‘Monos Carry-On’ ($293) & only 4” shorter. specs: 18” high x 14” wide x 9” deep. Monos describes their Carry-On as: Designed to comply with the size restrictions of as many airlines as possible, & fits in the overhead bin of nearly any flight. So I think this slightly shorter rolling suitcase would 99% likely be accepted as a carry-on. 💚Really impressed with the quality! Its lightweight but well structured, great features/compartments + an antibacterial laundry bag. I’m totally new to Drunk Elephant, but I wanted to try their L-Ascorbic Acid serum, Glycolic Acid serum & the Babyfacial🍼🐘 I also want to start using a gentle retinol. Those 4 products alone would have been $324! With my Rouge discount: $360! Regular price is $450- You get 10 full size products, 3 minis +5 sample packets. 18 different things to try! ➖Which would you like me to review first?➖ 🐘I want to trial everything before I review!

I wish there was a cocktail that had the same effects on my skin as this FABulous cream from @firstaidbeauty . It repairs my skin barrier when it’s going off the deep end and I use it almost every day, especially when my face is extra dry. It glides so well with SPF and the texture absorbs quick into the skin. It’s affordability and consistent perfect results are the only factors to consider when purchasing this cream. It’s pretty perfect!FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer

AND IT WAS ALL YELLOW. I start
AND IT WAS ALL YELLOW. I started incorporating the drjart Ceramidin Cream into my night routine for a few weeks now and I felt like it really helped with my somewhat combo-dehydrated skin. It’s charged with so much ceramides which help strengthen the skin’s natural protective barrier. I’m gonna have to use it more to know what it actually does to my skin in the long run but so far, so good!

My thoughts on this dreamy moisturizer ☁️☁️
My thoughts on this dreamy moisturizer ☁️☁️
I had been wanting to try this moisturizer for a long time because of how pretty it is! I finally purchased a variety pack of Herbivore products and this was included. I was very excited to try this product. I have normal to dry skin that can be somewhat sensitive sometimes. I was not super impressed by this moisturizer. The packaging and coloring is so cute, but the product itself was just ‘meh’ for me. After searching this product to include more details on this post, I could not find it anywhere! I am not sure if they discontinued producing it or what. But either way for $48, I do not recommend this moisturizer.HERBIVORE - PINK CLOUD Rosewater Moisture Creme

The other day I officially finished my second jar of the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream Safe for Sensitive Skin 💙 This is probably one of the most unique moisturizers I’ve ever used. Every time you open it you’re greeted with this cool foamy layer and underneath is the solid, lightweight cream layer. First Aid Beauty claims this light as air moisturizer helps repair the skin barrier (which is so important! This uppermost layer helps protect against Trans Epidermal Water Loss as well as keeping out damaging elements) as well as adding proper hydration. It contains ceramides to strengthen and moisturize, hyaluronic acid to boost skins moisture content as well as plump and smooth the skin, oxygen to help active ingredients penetrate better, and colloidal oatmeal to soothe the skin. I found myself coming back to this moisturizer every time I felt like my skin was getting dehydrated. When I needed a little boost or my skin was irritated for whatever reason this is what I reached for. It’s really cool every time you open it to see the layer of bubbles on top. Underneath is the actual moisturizer which, besides the Glow Recipe Sleeping Mask, is one of the most unique textures I’ve felt. It’s not your typical cream. It almost has this airy, whipped feeling to it. Like the first time you use this it’s going to feel so weird but as it absorbs it feels really lightweight and nourishing. I also suffer from eczema a lot which is why I like First Aid Beauty as a brand so much because they don’t formulate with irritants like fragrance and are safe for eczema prone skin. I received my two jars from gratis but this is something I’d completely purchase in the future.

FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repa
FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration Formulated with Colloidal Oatmeal, Shea Butter and allantoin, this thick creamy moisturizer provides instant hydration and doesn’t feel greasy. . I have not used it on my face, rather love using this on my body for all the hydration. I feel it would be a bit heavy for my face. . It is rich, moisturizing and is great to calm redness, dryness, irritation and for moisture barrier. . It is gentle enough even for sensitive skin and soothing for eczema prone skin. . I always have to keep a backup of this as my husband loves this cream more than me perhaps. . The product is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free.
