Today's post is for all you dry skinned gals, just like me. I have dry skin that can be a little sensitive at times and as much of a skincare addict I am, my routine generally consists of the same familiar faces... Liz Earle I'm looking at you.
When this A-DERMA range came into my life, I was a little hesitant. I was using up another moisturiser at the time, my skin seemed to be getting on with it but it wasn't love like my other Clinique and Origins favourites. I thought to hell with it, and gave this one ago and honestly... it was love at first touch. I'm talking the A-Derma Nutrialba Rich Nourishing Cream* here and it's so dreamy to the touch. I loved the gel formula of the Clinique Moisture Surge and the uber creamy-ness of the Origins High Potency Night-a-mins, but this was like something in between. It keeps my skin as hydrated as both of my old faves and the texture is gorgeous, it's super creamy but with the slightly tacky texture of the gel formula I know and love. It sinks in well, I usually apply a little more in the evening but in the morning before I apply my makeup I keep it to quite a minimum with just a thin layer across the face. It's so good that even the thin layer keeps my skin hydrated under makeup!
On to the other products and I actually really like them too. I save the A-Derma Rheacalm Rich Soothing Cream* for when my skin is feeling sore and irritated. It works great for those days, but luckily lately I haven't come across them much... I would put that down to my new favourite moisturizer! After attending an event for La-Roche-Posay recently, they had this nifty box where you stuck your head in and it showed up in different coloured spots and then a lovely lady that knew all about skin would tell you what you needed to be doing better. Eye Cream was my main one... I didn't use it, and I didn't really realise it could make that much of a difference. When I had tried them out before, my skin usually just ended up feeling a little irritated as it does when I use too many products and so just assumed it was a step I could miss out. Clearly, I was wrong and just being a tad lazy, and perhaps I was using the wrong one? So I set to work using this A-Derma Rheacalm Soothing Eye Contour Cream* and I don't have the 'too much product' on my skin issue anymore. That's the thing that's so great about this range, it's formulated for sensitive skin and it's so soothing when you use it.
If you have even the slightest of sensitive skin it'd be so worth checking A-Derma out, they have lots of different products and ranges to suit different skin types so I'm sure there'll be one for you... but if you do have dry skin, you need to try these out!
