I've always had a bit of a love hate relationship with moisturisers and have never quite understood the hype. But I now am...
There is almost always a moisturiser of some sort on my dressing table but I only use it if my skin is overly dry and even then, I tend to use my Origins Drink Me Up Mask instead of a moisturiser. But I've recently been using the Amie Morning Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser which I'd never heard of before until it landed in my post box. Amie is a natural skincare brand designed for sensitive skin so perfect for me! This has been incorporated into my skincare routine for the past couple of weeks, morning and evening and my skin feels so much softer. It's an incredibly light consistency and sits really well under makeup. Definitely would recommend! You can also pick it up from The Hut.
Likewise with face moisturisers, I rarely bother with a body version unless I'm suffering from day two itchy leg syndrome and even then, it's whichever moisturiser I can reach first (this typically ranges from hotel freebies to samples). But the Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion is so lovely. It's a rich formula that sinks into the skin instantly and doesn't leave it sticky or oily. The air has been ridiculously dry (Yes, I cringed writing that) and it's definitely taken a toll on my skin so I've been reaching for this a lot lately. Plus, it has a handy pump which makes it so much easier for someone who is particularly lazy with these sort of things.
Are you on the moisturising bandwagon? What are your favourite options?
