How I Saved My Dry Skin – My Top Dry Skin Products

Holaa again! Thanks for coming back to my blog and welcome if this is your first time here. If you don’t know, I recently moved to Eugene, OR to attend the University of Oregon and this is a much colder, drier climate than what I am used to. The first couple of days, my skin felt fine, but after a week went by my skin felt like I had just gotten off a 15-hour flight. My everyday moisturizer was not doing it, my dry skin felt drier after I cleansed it, masks were not enough, and I just needed to find new products that were gonna help me out and bring my skin back to its normal state. If you missed my last post you can find it here.

Cleanser

The first product I picked up was the Simple Water Boost Micellar Cleansing Water. Before this, I was using the fan-favorite Garnier SkinActive Cleansing Water. I am not saying the Garnier water was drying out my skin, but I just thought I’d switch things up and try something targeted to dry skin. So far, it has been great. I just purchased my second bottle.

Moisturizer

Next, moisturizer. I had been using the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel. Again, not saying this was a bad product, it was working fine for me while I was in Texas, but it just didn’t seem to be enough now that I live in Oregon. I did some research, and I looked up good drugstore moisturizers for dry skin as I didn’t want to splurge, and I decided to try the POND’S Dry Skin Cream. Pond’s is a brand that is very popular in Colombia, my mom has always used Pond’s, and I have been loving it. It is definitely a lot thicker than my Neutrogena one so I have started using a makeup primer before applying makeup just to make the application smoother, but I do think this has been a lifesaver.

Tonic

The next product has been on my list for a while, I enjoy using it, and I highly recommend it. Pixi’s Glow Tonic is another cult favorite. It feels like it has been around forever and everyone has amazing things to say about it.

Sheet Mask

Last, but definitely not least, the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb The Super Hydrating Sheet Mask. You’ve seen these masks all over Instagram, people were raving about them for months, and I was never to find them at my local HEB (Texas grocery store), but I’ve finally been able to dry them out. I only use this once a week or so, usually on a Sunday, and I love how it makes my skin feel. It is definitely that needed extra moisture I need at the end of a long week. There’s a couple version of this mask, and I’m sure there’s one that would work just for your skin type!

  • #firstaidbeautygiftedme I had been wanting to try the @firstaidbeauty Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer! I love a light base, especially for the summer. I was surprised by how creamy this was, I was expecting a much liquid formula like the @narsissist one. I love the natural finish of it though, it leaves my skin looking flawless and helps me even out skin tone. What’s your favorite cc cream/Tinted Moisturizer?#firstaidbeauty #OctolyFamily

  • Happy Sunday! Hope you all had a great weekend! I’ve been trying to take a break from my phone, but miss looking at all your beautiful beauty shots 😍I love using the @lorealmakeup Lumi Glotion and the @maybelline Matte + Poreless foundation together as it adds a little bit of glow to the base. Are you a matte or dewy type of person?

  • #peaceoutskincaregiftedme these are the @peaceoutskincare pore & blackhead strips. I was very excited to try these out, but I haven’t noticed any major differences. Unlike other strips, you’re supposed to use this for 4-6 hours. It did draw out some oil but it didn’t make enough of a difference. The blackhead strip also didn’t pull out any of the blackheads. @sephora @peaceoutskincare #peaceoutskincare #sephora #OctolyFamily

Estos strips son para los poros y puntos negros. Deben ser usados 4-6 horas. La verdad, no me parece que valgan la pena. Yo no note ninguna diferencia.

  • Okay. I did it. I caved but @ssssamanthaa made me do it! I picked up the @hourglasscosmetics Illumee Sheer Trio 😍It’s a whole lot of cream and I am obsessed. First, #hourglass packaging is always on point. Second, they’re so beautiful and easy to use. What’s one thing you’ve bought because of a creator?

  • What’s your go-to summer lip? I am cheating on #pinkwednesday with @thrivecausemetics Glossy Lip Mark in Karlie 😍 Fell in love with this shade as soon as I got it and I think it is so perfect for this time of the year. This formula is so natural, glossy, but not sticky. Very impressed with the pigmentation! If you have not tried @thrivecausemetics yet, make sure you do! They’re coming out with some really exciting stuff.

Cuál es su labial favorito para esta época del año? Yo estoy amando estos brillitos de #thrivecausemetics. Me encanta como se ven, en especial este en Karlie.
