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!

  • I’ve gotten a couple of questions about my skin type, and that kind of stuff so I thought I’d make this post a little more informational 👉🏼
🌟I have dry skin. Not super dry. But dry.
🌟My hair is dyed. It’s natural color is a boring brown. I went from a blonde balayage, to a deeper brown.
🌟My lips are usually dry and chapped but I still love a matte lipstick.
🌟I don’t use lip liners. I don’t curl my lashes. I never blow dry my hair.
🌟My main skin concerns are blackheads and visible pores in my cheek area.
🌟I don’t use anything that’s high coverage, except @tartecosmetics shape tape but that’s the best concealer out there so 🤷🏻‍♀️

  • Find someone who makes your weird weirder 🤪And a makeup sidenote - I used the @anastasiabeverlyhills Soft Glam and although you can’t see it (thanks tiny eyelids and squinty eyes), I love it!! The formula is amazing, the shades are beautiful, and it’s so easy to use. Just thought I’d update you.

  • Last weekend I had the chance to visit the @woodenshoefarm and it is one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen 🌷 Nothing better than being surrounded by tulips celebrating my 24th birthday.

  • Thank you @pixibeauty for all the eye goodies!! I am already a fan of their endless silky eye pen formula so can’t wait to try these shades. Today I used the Eye Bright Liner and the Eye Define Waterline to tightline. I really like the nude shade as it is very natural. Have you tried any of these?

Muchas gracias a @pixibeauty por este regalito!! Me encantan los delineadores de esta marca así que no puedo esperar a usar todo. Ya han usado alguno de estos productos?

  • I had been thinking about getting this @laneige_us lip mask for so long! As someone guilty of picking at her lips (thanks anxiety), they’re always a mess and just a hint of dryness enables me to pick at them. I’ve been using this for the last couple of nights, and I love waking up to hydrated lips 👄 Have you tried this or anything similar? How do you care for your lips?

Llevaba con muchas ganas de probar esta mascarilla para los labios! La he usado las últimas noches y me encanta poderme poner labial sin resequedad. Ya la probaron?
