I’m looking for a new face moisturizer and was curious to see what you liked. I’ve been using St. Ives Shea Butter and Oatmeal lotion on my face and have been pretty happy with it, but I’d like to buy one specifically designed for the face. I also read that shea butter was bad about clogging pores. I want to know what works for you and makes you happiest.
I’d also like some sort of night cream with Retin-A in it. I tried Garnier, but it was so incredibly perfume-y that my husband wouldn’t kiss me and I woke up with allergy puffy eyes from all the fragrance. I”m okay with citrus or mint scents, but like to stay away from flowery. I hated Clinique’s perfume-y moisturizer, loved Mary Kay (but it is pricey). I would like to stay within a $10-$30 price range.
I’m also leery of sunblock in face moisturizers. I can’t understand how I have to replace my child’s sunblock every hour, but the one in my face moisturizer supposedly lasts all day. I think they’re lying and there’s no point to wearing sunblock on my face if it’s only going to last the first hour of the morning.
I have never found an eye cream that doesn’t irritate my eyes. Do you know of one?
Also if you go the natural route when putting on moisturizer, I’m curious about that too. Do you put straight coconut oil on your face? Do you do the oil cleansing method?
Would love to know what your favorite facial moisturizers are and also some that you tried and hated.
