Skin Journal 02

A few moisturizers found their way to my vanity this last week. I rarely find moisturizers which meet my standards, and so I often skip them and choose hydrating serums and carrier oils. That being said, the formulations coming out lately have been interesting.

Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream has been my favourite. It blends six carrier oils together in a cream texture, which layers well over skin and I can only describe it as comforting. A skincare wardrobe staple from now on, though one too rich for my balanced skins to use daily.

GlamGlow Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer is a pressed cream designed to minimize topical sebum while giving a satin finish. I appreciate the vitamin B5 (water retention) and prickly pear extract (antioxidant), and the silicone-heavy formulation did have a mild blurring effect to pores and minor imperfections. I did not notice a reduction in topical sebum, which was disappointing, though skin had a reflective glow. I see this as a great lazy morning cream.
