Going along the same
train stream of thought, I’m embarking on a Get Myself As Wet As Possible campaign – to rehydrate my skin!
- Now, the selling point of this product is its 15% glycerin content, but since I’m not scientific geek and neither shall I pretend to be one, I will not be able to explain what that does / what it’s good for. You can try reading their website for more information.
- What does interest me is that it’s an intensive moisturising product that totally suits my parched skin these days.
- It comes in a tall slim bottle with a pump dispenser.
- The very lightweight white gel disperses / changes into tiny numerous water droplets after a few seconds of rubbing it into your skin. (Note: It’s not those auto-changing types, and neither does it have the super icy cool sensation).
- It’s scentless.
- It’s absorbed rather quickly into the skin – you’ll need to rub it gently into your skin for several seconds.
- Now how this product works (in a gist) is that it delivers a dose of hydration to your skin, and also has other ingredients that form a protective barrier around your skin to minimise/prevent further moisture loss.
- It’s no miracle worker but I can say that I have seen a slight increase in my skin’s moisture levels i.e. it seems plumper and therefore smoother since the fine lines are “fleshed” out with the increased hydration.
- So far, no breakouts and no pesky pimples – yay.
- It also leaves no residue so once you gently pat in the remnant water droplets, you can layer on with the rest of your products.
Beauty Tip: Since I’m having a major outbreak nowadays, I’m taking a breather from my usual 10-step routine and doing these instead: Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion Light –> this Kiehl’s product –> Belif Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate (done!)
Overall, a pretty decent moisturing product to have in your stash – remember, just cos you have combi or combi-oily skin doesn’t mean you should scrimp on the hydrating products.
