"The best things are discovered by accident."
When that quote becomes popular, I'm gonna say "I'm Anonymous! I'M ANONYMOUS!!!" (I my head, I'm running after people who are not listening to me....and then I stumble & fall on my face.)
BUT I probably won't, because it's so.....it's so.....it's so! Let's just leave it at that.
Now on to topic:
I have been fighting dry patches on my skin for a while (again!) On the tip of my chin & center of forehead mostly. So, I was hunting for "watery" skin care products. I stumbled upon my 'secret' product while Googling.
It is the L'Oreal Hydrafresh Mask-In Lotion.
Made with Grape Polyphenols + French Spa Water & Double Hyaluronic Acid. This lotion is basically a toner, essence & mask in one.
It has a slimy texture, somewhat like pure undiluted Glycerin, but not as sticky. It tastes a lil' sweet like Glycerin too ;p (I was curious!) On the ingredients list, Glycerin is the 2nd ingredient after Aqua/Water.
One hectic morning, I realized I'd forgotten to moisturize my skin before applying foundation. I just knew my foundation will look patchy. Without even thinking twice, I put a few drops of it on my hand and applied it to my face together with my foundation. It blended well & I was amazed at how healthy/glowy my skin looked! Dewy, if you prefer. My dry patches feel like skin again.
For summer, especially scorching Indian summer, this way works better for my combination skin, as opposed to a creamy/oily type of foundation, because this lotion is more watery -if that makes sense. What I mean is, the oily parts of my face wouldn't look greasy.
Now I add it in all my face products, including BB & CC Creams too. Of course I use it alone as well, and it has replaced my other creams atm.
I also got the L'Oreal Hydrafresh Night Mask-in Jelly, that comes in a pink glass jar, and I have been really liking using that too.
To readers in Nepal, I hope you & your family are all alright and weren't affected by the earthquake. It's heartbreaking to see the places and lives it has wrecked.
When the earthquake passed our city on Saturday, Mr.CZ & I were changing Ziizayne's diaper (Yes, the No.2 has to be tackled by 2!) I still wasn't feeling my best, so I thought my head was spinning. I said I felt like fainting. Mr.CZ said, "Ya, me too!"
That's when we realized it's an earthquake. Our apartment is high up, so it's so scary!
Let's pray it won't happen again.
Talk again soon!
