I don’t know what is up with this time of year, but my skin has been dryer than ever and it seems that very little is helping it so I’m turning to every moisturizer that I can get my hands on. Caryl Baker Visage’s H2O Restore collection stands out because it uses glycerine and hyaluronic acid to bring moisture to the skin and keep it there.
There are 6 products in the line: a foaming cleanser, toner, mask, eye cream, hydrating gel, and face cream. All six are awesome in their own way.
The foaming cleanser ($36) foams right out of the tube, so it’s light and not very harsh or drying on your skin. It could wash away light makeup, but I prefer using it in the morning when I don’t have much on my skin and I want to clean it but not make it too dry.
I love following up with the Hyaluronic Hydrating Toner ($35), and honestly if this was just a mixture of glycerin and water, I probably would have ignored it but because it’s a bit more than that, I tried it on my skin and now it’s got a permanent place on my bathroom counter. I like it because it provides light hydration so it’s perfect for those days when my skin is a bit oily, but it also adds an extra layer of moisturizer for those days that my skin needs more. It’s a little thicker in texture than just water, and that’s because it has a high concentration of moisturizing ingredients in it.
I follow up with the Antioxidant cream ($65) because it’s nice and emollient, but dries to a satin matte finish so you can apply makeup on top if you need to. It’s great for night time as well because it won’t feel sticky or greasy as you go to sleep. It could also be a great base for hydrating oil if you needed one more layer of moisture on your skin. The cream already has a great mixture of oils in it, in addition to vitamin E and beta carotene to help with free radical damage on the skin. It has a great mixture of ingredients, but it’s also so light once it absorbs into your skin and it lets your skin look and feel like skin. I’m hooked.
If you have dry skin, then head to your local Caryl Baker Visage location and get a moisturizing facial, and check these products out.
