Favorite DayTime Moisturizers
In this blog post I’m sharing my current favorite day-time moisturizers, how I like to use them + a little trick to make expensive skincare budget friendly. I like to keep skincare very simple, because if I add too many steps, I kinda end up not doing anything at all; in the morning I don’t have that much time to spend layering up products and follow a proper regimen.
How to make expensive skincare budget-friendly ?
I like to use different moisturizers depending on the weather, condition of my skin, whether I’m going out or gonna stay home all day, whether I’m putting on makeup or not and other factors like that. We all know how expensive skincare can be, plus being super picky about the products you use doesn’t help. If I were to buy different moisturizers for all of those factors, firstly I’m going to be broke and secondly I’m not gonna be able to use them all up before they expire, and it’s such a waste; because at the end of the day, you really don’t need that much product. What I like to do is, I opt for travel size or smaller size products. It not only makes it budget friendly, but it lasts longer than you think. Plus I don’t use the same moisturizer every single day.
Daytime Moisturizer #1
Olay Regenerist Flawless Skin
In my opinion, I agree with the claims on this product, except non-greasy. It’s not a 100% non-greasy. It has anti-aging properties, and it is targeted towards women wayyyy older than me, but I use it anyway. It has a very very strong scent, almost like men’s cologne, I love men’s cologne so it doesn’t matter to me. But if you have super sensitive skin, I think you should pass on this product. I like to wear this one, when I know I’m gonna be home for the day. It has thick creamy consistency, like a sunscreen and it really helps to moisturize the skin, about anti-aging properties, I do think it works, the change isn’t going to be drastic, but you’ll notice a little bit of difference. I have used Olay total effects 7x moisturizer as a day and night cream too, for quite a while, and really liked it. If you’re looking for good and affordable skincare products, OLAY is definitely a brand to explore. Plus I love the fact most OLAY products come in pumps, no chance of contaminating the product.
Daytime Moisturizer #2
Biotherm Aquasource Gel
This moisturizer is sooo light weight. A gel consistency that sinks into the skin super quick and moisturizes really well. The claim on biotherm aquasource products is that they provide hydration upto 48 hours, and makes your skin water-plumped and radiant, and I do agree with that. It’s a great everyday kinda moisturizer, if you’re looking for just getting one full-sized jar, and you like light-weight moisturizers, you’ll really like it, plus you can also use it as an evening moisturizer. Since it’s so light-weight I like to wear it underneath the makeup.
Daytime Moisturizer #3
Estee Lauder Double-wear moisturizer
I’m gonna start with the scent, I love it. Even though it doesn’t matter much, but I love the scent of this product. It smells like fresh cucumbers and I find it very refreshing. It’s a light green, light-weight cream consistency. It absorbs in the skin right-away. If you’re looking to hop on the anti-aging products band wagon, this is a good product to start with. It helps to prevent early signs of aging, and it has spf 15. I like to wear this moisturizer when my skin feels very dull and tired, plus when the weather isn’t super sunny.
Daytime Moisturizer #4
Lancome Visionnaire Advanced Multi-Correcting Cream
This has been my most recent favorite,and I’m loving it. Since I’m almost out of Biotherm Aquasource Gel I got this one, I’d still like to use it for a while before sharing a proper review. But so far so good. It’s an anti-aging product and on their website this product is described as; “New vision of skin perfection now in a day cream. Discover our 1st Visionnaire Advanced Multi-Correcting Day Cream that addresses multiple signs of aging. In addition to correcting the appearance of wrinkles, pores, and texture, skin appears more plump and radiant”. I’m really liking it so far, may be I’ll review it on my blog in near future.
Let me know which is your favorite daytime moisturizer and I should try ? I hope you find this post helpful.
