Hello November! I'm welcoming in the cold with full embrace, the summer here in California has lasted far too long and in case you haven't heard we are in a nasty drought. And as much as I am thrilled about the rain, wind, and all the cozy feels my skin has the tendency to look like it's in as much of a drought as the whole state! Am I alone on that?
Anyways to combat the dry winter breeze and lock in as much hydration onto my face as possible I have invested in a few products that I've been eye balling after receiving a sample of, and that's the Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Mask and the Eye Balm!
Alright so I just smothered the mask onto my skin, it goes on clear so I just wanted to show you guys it before I smoothed it out. I've tried other hydrating masks which feel more oily, dry to be filmy, or are too thin and feels like it'll drip down my face. This is not that kind of mask. This mask is a bit thicker, but it rubs in super nice, it doesn't film up or make my skin itchy, to compare the texture of it it is very "balm" like, just not as heavy as an actual balm, you could see that I am able to swipe it on my cheek like a cream... I guess that makes it "balm"ish but swipe-able? ...Anyways, this mask doesn't dry like I've found a few masks to do (yes, even some hydrating masks I've tried have dried out on my skin before it was time to remove it!).
The formula feels lighter on my skin and I could usually wear this mask and quickly forget about it while I study, which I might have done a few too many times! I understand that it's pricey but for someone who is has dry, sensitive, eczema prone skin it was worth the purchase.
Alrighty, the Eye Balm is one of my favorite eye products at the moment. Because I'm so young I don't find it as necessary to wear, but as a student this thing is just about as close as I can get to that "goodnights rest" that I keep on hearing about, that things a myth, right? Unlike the Hydrating Mask I do notice this product while I am wearing it as the formula is much thicker. I feel like I don't pamper my eyes nearly as often and if I do it's with lower quality products, so after putting this stuff on I was like "whoa whoa whoa... what's this feeling on my lids?"
I don't think thick eye products are everyone's cup of tea but it's mine, maybe that's because I don't use it as often? I'm not sure.
Anyways, with these two products I feel like I am prepared for the driest winter California has to throw at me!
