Buy This NOW.

Tuesday, February 17, 2009


You know the saying about how you can only truly appreciate something when it's gone? Well that saying has never rang truer than when I ran out of my Clinique moisture surge face cream last night. I have only started using this product this year and I wasn't sure if I loved it. That was until I ran out of it. 

Cut to me walking up this morning to dry, flaky, and peeling skin. My face looked the way I fell after a 5 martini night (my head hurts just remembering those days.) You know the feeling, when you wake up and you are just so freaking thirsty. Like I could drink an entire swimming pool of water thirsty? Like you feel like you are licking the bottom of the Grand Canyon thirsty? Yea, well that's how my face felt. 

Luckily I had the sitter today and I was able to pick this up while I was running around town. I literally poured some on my face and immediately my skin is again hydrated and dewy. I again have the skin of a person who does not live in New England in February. Yes, that kind of skin. This stuff really is amazing and if you haven't tried it and you live anywhere north of the equator I suggest you run to your nearest department store and pick some up. It's inexpensive (relatively), oil free (a must for this acne prone mummy), and it's a gel so you can wear it at night and during the day under makeup. 

While you are at it might I suggest you buy two? No one wants to wake up to what I saw this morning......no one.

Clinique is one of the few cosmetic/beauty ranges I can use due to allergies, and I LOVE all of their products. They really do what they promise don't they? I'm glad you managed to restock.

Funny... I was handed a large sample of it walking through Nordstrom one day, not usually a clinique fan, but this stuff is amazing! I tried my regular lotion once I ran out and my skin was sooo dry so I went and bought it... the perfect solution for New England winters!!

ooo you ever try Hope in a Jar? I got a sample of it from philosophy and have been kind of obsessing over it.

and yeah, my skin is flipping out on me during this beautiful new england february!

I use the eye cream in this range... it's beautiful, feels like velvet and doesn't make my eyes puffy. Love Love Love the stuff! With the big 40 approaching this year I am SO into the "prevention is better than cure" attitude when it comes to skin creams!

I love this stuff...I'm a 10 year veteran of it and it is amazing. I use it the morning and evening (putting it on about 10 minutes before my regular moisturizer) and I'm going to start using it mid-day this winter since my office air is SO dry.

Have you ever tried DHC products? I have used all the department store brands but hooked on DHC now. Great stuff!
