There are currently 496 moisturizers available at Sephora.com. Choosing a facial cream can be exhausting. You really have to know your specific needs (anti-aging, acne and blemishes, dryness..). You gotta research ingredients that are necessary to your needs, and start reading labels. Customer reviews and personal beauty blog posts are an excellent way to narrow down your search. How many stars does the product get? What are 'real' people saying? I'm a self-declared product junkie and think these hydrating products are worth a mention.. This is intense hydration - Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream is a concentrated 30 percent hyaluronic acid cream. Hyaluronic acid is a potent hydrator that can retain up to 1000 times it's weight in water. If water was creamy- this would be it. It's so refreshing, and leaves your skin feeling silky and super-nourished. The non-greasy cream absorbs fairly quickly (a little goes a long way), and doesn't leave your skin shiny. Water Drench is the perfect hydrator during summer. I purchased this a few months ago and couldn't stop applying it during the first week (2-3 times a day). It's addictive. I use the moisturizer when I plan to go bare, cause it's not thick enough to prime my skin for makeup.
Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has been my go-to brand for years. The Hydrating Face Cream and Vitamin Enriched Face Base are two of my favorite BB products. The Hydrating Face Cream absorbs nicely, plumps your skin, and creates the perfect base for makeup. This lightweight formula has a refreshing, masculine scent that diminishes quickly. It's also enriched with mineral water. I'm addicted to water (really) - I consume two to three litres a day. On the subject of anti-ageing, water is your best friend. The Vitamin Enriched Face Base is an oil-free primer and moisturizer. Like the Hydrating Face Cream, this product hydrates and plumps your skin. It's much thicker than the Hydrating Face Cream and has a light, citrus scent. I use the Vitamin Enriched Face Base if I need super-nourishing, and plan to pile on the makeup.
I love this brand - so does everyone else. The oh so popular Glossier brand prides itself on a no-makeup-makeup kinda look - a natural girl who doesn't fuss over perfection. Don't we all wanna be that girl? Glossier Priming Moisturizer and Priming Moisturizer Rich hydrate and prime your skin for makeup (or not). Priming products simply nourish and plump your skin, giving you a healthier look, and preparing your face for easy makeup application. The Priming Moisturizer contains Hyaluronic Acid, Mushroom Super Hydrator and Vitamins A, C and E. This lightweight formula is buildable and has a 'cream' scent. There's something to be said for products in tubes - you can really get down to the last dollop. The Priming Moisturizer Rich is much thicker and ideal for bedtime. It contains Red Algae Complex, Ceramides (oily waxes), Fatty Acids, Murumuru Butter, and Lavender Oil (could do without this scent). Like the Priming Moisturizer, this formula contains an anti-redness complex (I need that), and Oxygenating Agent. This is a 'luxurious face cream'.Use my link to get 10% off your first Glossier purchase - http://bff.glossier.com/gMn0U

Make Up For Ever didn't interest me until I visited the Sephora in Downtown Montréal. The Make Up For Ever section is huge, intriguing and the lashes display to die for! I have a new addiction to falsies and have been trying all the major brands. Make Up For Ever false eye lashes are amazing, but we'll talk about that another day. Being that the lashes are great, I figured their other products are probably high quality as well - so, I went back and purchased the Make Up For Ever Sens'eyes waterproof sensitive eye cleanser and the Mist & Fix setting spray.
When I take off my false eye lashes, sometimes there's glue left on my lashes and lids and my longtime-favorite eye makeup remover doesn't get it off. I was hoping the Sens'eyes would do the job and it does! This oil-free, gel makeup remover is strong enough to remove waterproof makeup, so a little glue is not a problem. The directions say to apply the remover on a cotton pad and let the solution sit on your eyelids and lashes (do not rub), then gently wipe the eye makeup off. Unfortunately, it burns my lids, so I'm enclined to speed up the process and rub away.. This remover is a sensitive eye cleanser, but I guess my skin is 'overly'-sensitive. There is no visible irritation after using this product, so I'll finish the bottle.
Mist & Fix is a light weight makeup setting spray. I'll admit, I was hesitant to spray anything wet on my face after applying my makeup, but this non-greasy, non-sticky formula goes on nicely and dries instantly. It kinda has an unpleasant scent that diminishes quickly - I'm sensitive to smells and would discontinue use if it lingered. After misting my face, my makeup appeared more even and my dry, 'winter skin' looked hydrated and dewy (even a little oily). Now that I'm over my fear of makeup setting spray, I'm gonna try other brands before settling on my favorite.

Cold weather, indoor heating and dry conditions will dehydrate your skin, leaving your complexion dull and sometimes chapped! GLAMGLOW Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment Masque will replenish your skin, boost radiance and combat the side effects of severe dry skin. This nondrying masque uses raw honey and ginger root to detoxify your skin, conditioning coconut and sugars along with citrus acid for extreme moisturization. This product smells great, sweet and honey-like. GLAMGLOW Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment Masque will leave your skin feeling soft and super hydrated. You will be surprised with the results of just one treatment.
Apply a thin layer of Thirstymud masque and leave for 10-20 minutes. Use a cotton pad to remove the access masque and gently massage the remaining product into your skin. I recommend applying before bed to allow for maximum hydration.
