Mini Me: Moisturizer Thoughts

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

As I slowly try and coax my skin back to some semblance of clarity I've been trying a lot of products. Acne treatments, face washes, moisturizers - all of them. And I'm trying to do all this slowly, using the gentlest products I can find, to make sure that my skin doesn't breakout worse. It's so hit and miss that sometimes I want to throw myself out a window.

Luckily most places are great about making you samples of things you're interested in so a few weeks I went back around to The Body Shop in Union Station to give them a try. I'd loved some of their products before but gradually they'd cycled out of my routine as time went on. Lately though I've been focusing on moisturizers and they've got some great ones to try. My favorite right now? The Aloe Soothing Night Cream. It's fantastic!
This stuff literally smells like nothing. It not only doesn't smell like perfume, it doesn't smell like a random amalgamation of ingredients either. It's an orderless thick cream that goes on smoothly and moisturizes like a dream. I have to admit that I love it, especially since I haven't broken out from it either. Currently I'm giving their reformulated tea tree night lotion a try, but if you have dry skin or patches and you're looking for a soothing moisturizer then I highly recommend the aloe one - in addition to working great I think it'll last you forever!
