IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A NEW MOISTURIZER..........

A reader messaged me recently saying she was looking for a new moisturizer.  She wasn't looking for a miracle transformation just something that would be well absorbed, moisturize her skin,and keep it looking its best. She also hoped the product wouldn't cost a fortune
Well she got me at the right time because I've been doing a bit of moisturizer research myself.   After years of using Cliniques, Super Defence  Moisturizer I decided it was time for a different one  Not that I was displeased with my old choice.  I liked the way it was absorbed , loved the glow in gave my skin and the way it felt.  However it contained oxybenzone as one of it primary ingredients which made the red spots ever lurking just beneath the skin on my left cheek rise to the surface and become scaly.  (See prior post What the Dermatologist said for the entire story)   So it was farewell to Super Defence and its glow because I still believe it was the oxybenzone that supplied it
I took up my search for a replacement using my usual tactics of trying out various samples at  department store cosmetic counters and  Sephora Most were over $40.and not that all impressive. I'm also trying to cut down on my beauty product spending and decided to hit the mass market stores.
My sister-in-law had mentioned how much she liked  Boots No7 products The line comes from Great Britain and is carried by Target    After losing my self among their vast array of Boots products I  purchased their Advanced Hydration  Day Cream ($14.99 ) and decided to give it a try.
Bingo!  It went on smoothly, had a rich creamy texture and was nicely absorbed.  The best part was that it kept me skin feeling moisturized all day both with and without makeup and I didn't  get that tight dry feeling mid afternoon which as been a complaint of mine with some of the other drug store moisturizers.       Unlike most other mass market store lines, Boots does very little advertising which of course keeps the price down.  Stay tuned .  Ill be checking out  other products from them.
Cheers,
Barb
PS Serums are  the latest entry on the path to perfect skin.  I've yet to try them but would love to hear from anyone who has

if you like boots no 7 products you should buy protect and perfect intense day cream, night cream and serum , also the intense eye cream is fab.. all of these products came up better than high end brands costing over £100 in a television documentary researching the cost and effectiveness of beauty products , they were clinically proven to diminish sun damage and improve skin condition , and these cost £22 each , they are fabulous and this test was an independent lab test.

I use a combination of shea butter and coconut oil. Put a little of both in the palm of your hand, and with your body heat, liquify them. Then smear it on. The trick is, you have to really massage this in. Also, if you've got to go anywhere within a couple of hours, or wear eye makeup, this probably isn't a good option, because it takes a long time for it to absorb into the skin. But when it finally does, your skin feels dewy. I get compliments all the time on my skin and I'm 56.

I received samples of Merlot skin care at Walgreens and am amazed by how gentle and effective this line is. I priced these products online and am impressed by how affordable they are.

I also had a red spot which became scaly on my left cheek. Was wondering if I should get it checked by the dermatologist but decided to try a dab of A and F ointment on it. I started using this on our baby (!) who is now 30... my mother loved it, not realizing it was meant for the baby, and used it until she died at almost 90!! She considered it a miracle cream... Anyway the A and D fixed my dry, scaly problem and I now use it on my lips and (lightly) on my eyelids at night.

When one of many editors here with Men's Health questioned his father what he for a moisturizer, here’s precisely what he was advised. We also are aware that moisturizing isn’t just vital for ones face. The skin below your eyes couldn’t be different than the epidermis on your biceps or legs. All this has different needs, and requires unique products.
