Surging to HG status


Winter is still unfortunately here in the north east coast, and wreaking havoc on my skin!

A few days ago, I shared my new Hydrationist moisturizer from Estee Lauder for normal comb skin. I exchanged that in for the dry skin formula. I don't have dry skin. Not even close. This is how bad the wind and weather has effected my skin

All winter, (yes March counts here) I have had very random flakiness. My skin did not seem dry but sometimes I would just randomly get flaky. This looks pretty horrendous under makeup. The more you try to remove the worse it looks. I tried fix +, started using tinted moisturizer tinted moisturizer, and nada, nothing would stop this

It happened today, I knew it would, I could tell in the morning. When I got to work, it looked like I had eaten a bag of cookies and had never heard of a napkin. Ridiculously mortifying
In desperation I used the lotion in the bathroom and slathered it all over my flakes, within seconds flakes again, running back to my desk, I then slathered on my intensive moisture hand cream, again useless - getting desperate here
My face was literally falling off! I'm sorry if this was too graphic, but I'm trying to explain the severity with some background

I ran to my local Sephora for an SOS situation, and knew exactly which product to grab
The same item that helped me last time ( yes I run to Sephora for aid often)
This my dear readers is magic. Say it with me M-A-G-I-C




I slathered this on my skin on top of my makeup and within seconds *poof* problem solved! All my flakes, every single one was soothed. I decided I could not do without this again, and purchased a small tub. While it is March, the crap wind is still blowing 60 mph in my face, but I now have a secret weapon!
This is a moisturizer you wear on top of your normal moisturizer for an extra sure of hydration, and this damn well works!

New to my HG list:

Clinique's Moisture Surge

May we never be parted!

  1. HG? :P
    I've tried it once a while ago but for some reason don't remember much about it..
    My skin has been almost the same way! But I think I seemed to put it under control, it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I just wish the cooler/warmer (no wind) weather would come already!
