A few months ago, I asked my Facebook and Twitter friends what their favorite face moisturizer was for normal skin. I have very normal skin: not oily, but occasionally dry when the weather changes; rare breakouts, but more if I use a very oily product. There were two products that got rave reviews from many people, so I decided to give them a try.


The first up:

Love this product! It is definitely too heavy to wear during the day, so I put it on each night before bed. I believe Kristin was one of the people who suggested this, and I have to admit that I went out immediately and grabbed it because she has glowing, gorgeous skin. Not kidding. I’ve been using it for almost six months and it is the perfect balance: light enough that it doesn’t cause breakouts, but heavy enough that it clears up dry skin.



I just bought my second bottle of this last week. Again, another product I absolutely love! It is very similar to the Cetaphil, but it is definitely lighter and perfect for daytime. Plus, it has sunscreen.


The only other product I occasionally use on my face is this:

Sometimes I will use this before going out. I don’t use any foundation on my face and hate when something feels “caked” on, so this tinted moisturizer is perfect.


And while I’m on the topic of products, I picked this up last week at Ulta.

It is now my go-to moisturizer right out of the shower. It smells good enough to eat.

Have a favorite moisturizer? What is it?


Okay. I’m done talking about non-food things for the day. Off to cook!
