Status: Beauty DAY!
Weather in West Coast, USA is very dry. My face was peeling badly when I was there. So while shopping at Las Vegas Premium Outlet North one day, I decided to buy myself a nourishing face cream to heal my peeling skin.
If you follow me on Instagram or @AhDaLin" href="http://www.twitter.com/ahdalin" target="_blank">Twitter, you might remember seeing me posted this bareMinerals Purely Nourishing Cream for Dry Skin. If all you want to know is how whether this product works, well, I’m here to tell you that it DOES WORK! But if you want to find out more, do read on! PLUS: I’m having a GIVEAWAY! Check out the last section of the post.
What the product claims to do:
[Quote from bareMinerals website]
- Our proprietary ActiveSoil Complex represents a new generation of beneficial minerals with extraordinary skin-renewing benefits, including faster cell turnover and antioxidant defense
- Clinically proven to reveal brighter, smoother, younger-looking skin, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and remarkably smaller-looking pores
- Unique electrolyte delivery system optimizes your skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture, resulting in smoother, healthier-looking skin
- We formulated our skincare to perform expertly with our foundation to give you a younger-looking complexion both instantly and over time
In terms of texture, this nourishing cream is not really lightweight. It is pretty rich. Hence, it advisable for individuals with dry skin or at least use on dry areas such as cheeks for individuals with combination skin. I usually use it on my cheeks before I apply my medicated acne cream. The acne cream dries up my skin and may cause more acne (one main cause of acne is overly dry skin). With this nourishing cream, it prevents my skin from getting too dry and peeling.
Results are really fast. Back in USA, my face was peeling badly and after applying this cream, the peeling seems to heal the next day! However, perhaps due to the humid weather in Singapore, this product does cause my pores to clog slightly. Hence I usually only use it at night before I sleep in an air-conditioned room. My advise, use sparingly if you live in a humid area like me.
Retailing at US$28 for 50ml on bareMinerals website. Not sure how much it retails in Singapore though. Haven’t been to Sephora to check it out. If I’m not wrong, it is about S$40+ to S$50+?
Apply to freshly cleansed skin morning and night.
Will I buy this product again?: Depends. If I find a more suitable moisturizer that is not too rich and yet keeps my dry skin from peeling, I’d change. Otherwise, I’ll get this. For me, choosing the right moisturizer is always a headache. BIG headache.
