Winter dryness is a relatively new thing for me. Before moving east, fall and winter were fairly damp, so I never worried much about moisturizers. (Of course these were also the "pre-product junkie" years). But this will be my ninth East Coast fall/winter (wow…9? Really?). And I have learned the importance of serious hydration during the cold months. Today I'm featuring a really super moisturizer from Cosmedix.
Emulsion - Intense Hydrator
Blurb: This deep-penetrating moisturizer alleviates and helps prevent irritation following aggressive exfoliation. A soothing blend of nature’s perfect hydrators—jojoba oil and shea butter—in a unique liquid crystal formulation, Emulsion helps replenish the skin’s delicate liquid crystal matrix to revive dry, aging or recently resurfaced skin.
First: big brownie points because it's pink (I just needed to say that - now back to the relevant information).
I was expecting this to be very heavy (since it's called an "intense hydrator" and contains shea butter); but it's actually a medium weight moisturizer. It absorbed quickly and my skin was protected and hydrated without feeling greasy. This moisturizer also feels really good. Kudos for the packaging too. The pump dispenses a small amount (and a little bit goes a long way). My skin also looked a lot better. This time of year, my skin tends to look a little less "fresh" at the end of the day. I used a little bit before reapplying makeup to go out, and it made a huge difference.
