Fab Five Friday: Facial Moisturizers

Fab Five Friday: Facial Moisturizers! (Winter Wonderland Beauty)

If you couldn't tell from my posts lately, this winter I'm all about MOISTURE MOISTURE MOISTURE! Winter is NOT the time to skimp on moisturizer! Regardless of whether you have sensitive, normal, or oily skin, proper hydration is a must to keep it in tip top shape. Here are five FANTASTIC moisturizers to consider adding  to your beauty routine - all tried and tested by me, guaranteed to keep your skin smooth, plump, and hydrated no matter the season! {Products sent for review consideration}

Looking for that effortless everyday protection? Zensation Super Nourishing Cream SPF 50 ($85.00) shields, hydrates, and nourishes your complexion with intensely moisturizing botanicals and marine extracts. Scentless Camomile Extract infuses skin with moisture, and Sea Fennel Concentrate from coastal plants provides a natural skin guard. Dry skin is quenched and refreshed instantly and protected for hours. Multifunctional Salicylic Acid Ester gently exfoliates to give your skin a refined, smooth texture. I am OBSESSED with the moisturizer - SPF 50 AND Salicylic Acid for exfoliation?!? I mean, what else can you ask for. I use this when I know I'm going to be out and about because it leaves my skin baby soft and sets me up for the best makeup applications.

Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance Day Cream SPF 15 ($21.99) is a multi-purpose, SPF-15 infused formula that protects your complexion from sun damage and improves skin’s luminosity. Developed with antioxidant rich Arctic cloudberry seed oil and naturally detoxifying cloudberry nectar, this rich formula fortifies skin against internal and external stressors while removing dulling impurities for improved radiance. This is my jam when I know I won't be doing much more than walking to the bus stop. It makes my skin bright and protects it from the UV rays. 

Biotherm Aquasource Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel for Normal/Combination Skin ($39) is a mouthful to say, but an absolute delight on the skin! I HIGHLY recommend this if you have oily skin and are wary of using heavy/cream moisturizers. Developed with Life Plankton Cellular Water, its unprecedented performance-enhancing texture forms a protective shield that envelopes your skin, trapping in vital ingredients that keep it hydrated for a record-breaking 48 hours.The formula is light and refreshing and contains no paraben preservatives or mineral oils. 

Amarte Aqua Veil Hydrator ($65) is a cucumber-infused, ultra-light serum that optimizes hydration by releasing droplets of pure H²0 onto the skin to form a protective veil. A skin toner and serum in one, this unique moisturizer gives skin a silky, youthful radiance. This product is MAGNIFICENT! I may be overselling it a bit {though I don't think so}, but I LOVE this potion. I use it on my lazy girl nights, when I don't feel like spending forever on my skin care routine, but I still really want to take care of my skin. I can literally just wash my face then put this on while it's still damp and be done, but from the way my skin looks and feels, you would think that I went through the whole shebang.

Lumene Excellent Future Dual Boost Age-Defying and Repairing Night Cream ($29.99) combats signs of aging and reduces the depth of already-formed wrinkles. Formulated with Peat Extract to improve skin’s elasticity, and Panthenol and Vitamin E to keep skin soft, supple and moisturized, it helps skin maintain its youthful appearance. Now, I'm not gonna lie, I'm not really dealing with signs of aging yet, but I don't want to any time soon, so I use this ultra-conditioning cream as a preventative measure. 

Do you see any of your favorites here? Did I give you any ideas for your beauty shopping list? Do you use a different moisturizer for day and night? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time...
