I think this goes with out saying but winter skin is the WORST. Seriously, I morph into a dragon this time of year with my dry, scaly-ass, flaky, crusty skin. Ha, wanna make out? Jk/jk. Self-deprication aside (I’ve actually got mad self love, this is just a dose of realsies, ‘namean?) – Mama has seriously needed help!
Over the years, I’ve come to realize that most store bought moisturizers don’t do sh*t. They’re often watery, too light and puny, and sometimes they contain alcohol – WTF, right!?
Awhile back, I was like F it and started making my own using pure nut butters and oils, and dat ish worked! I recently came across 100% Pure’s Intensive Nourish Moisture Balm ($25), and it not only resembles my homemade miracle face cream, but it surpasses it and kicks ALL kinds of boo-tay.
Doooooood. Dood. Seriously, if you have mega dry skin, eczema, etc., you’re gonna flip out over this holy grail of face creams. It’s antioxidant-rich and deeply moisturizing with its avocado, shea and almond butters—zero gunky artificial crap, making it ideal for sensitive skin. Peep for yourself:
Ingredients: Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Almond Butter), Vitis Vinifera (Cabernet Grapeseed) Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Oil, Cemellia Sinensis (Organic Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender Essential Oil), Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Ribes Nigrum (Blackcurrant) Oil * Certified Organic
OK, now heads up, this balm is thick, and that’s why I especially love it. Some peeps might be a little intimidated by its hearty nature, but rest assured, it will not break out your skin nor will it leave a crazy messy oily residue all over your face. Sure, there will be a slight slick feeling, but just rub in in thoroughly and embrace the power of Mother Nature!
You guys, I’ve only been using this balm for a week, and I’m already seeing a yuuuge difference in my skin’s texture. It’s so much softer and healthier looking; I’m excited to see where my skin is at in like a month! I’m also really diggin’ its lovely lavender scent (not too light or too strong, just right), which is perfect before beddies (when I love to get my mega slather on)… it’s so calming and relaxing.
