Everything Vanishing Cream by Lush is: moisturising, oil controlling, not too thin or thick, soothing… It’s just right and perfect for me <3

I would love to find a moisturizer that doesn’t cause me to break out or make my eyes irritated and red. Still Looking!!

My holy grail moisturizer qualities would have to include: oil controlling, anti-aging properties, glow factor, smooth out skin. I haven

I don’t actually think I’m too picky, but what most moisturizers tend to lack is SPF. And a decent SPF too, ideally 30.

Very moisturizing, I like to let it absorb for 5-15 minutes before makeup. SPF. Anti-aging and anti-oxidant properties. It must move the sun and stars, basically.

It needs to be ultra-moisturizing and quick-absorbing, without leaving an oily film behind. SPF ist a must, too – at least 15. And I like it to be unscented or very lightly and pleasantly scented, because that’s my biggest issue with drugstore moisturizers – they always have such a strong and horribly artificial scent! The texture should be light and creamy, without being too thick. Anti-aging properties are always a plus, as well. I’m still looking…it seems almost impossible to find a really good moisturizer at a reasonable price.

Has to be oil free so it doesn’t break me out.
Has to have spf of at least 15.
Has to absorb well into my skin.
Has to be skin calming.
Would love if additionally it was a multi tasker that could be used both on my face and my eyes.

An SPF of at least 15, non-greasy
Helps the brightness of my skin
Contains no animal ingredients, and no animal-testing
Uses fair-trade ingredients

That’s hard to find though..at a decent price.

I LOVE A Perfect World moisturizer from Origins. I have tried tons of products from drugstore brands to other department store brands. This product is amazing! It is not exactly cheap, but a little bit is really all you need. If you go into any Origins store or counter, they will give you a sample of any product you choose.

My HG is alba botanica sea lipid daily cream. I need:

– *NO* avobenzene (chemical sunscreen) – I’m allergic
– not greasy
– not heavy (oily skin)
– fast absorbing
– wears well under makeup
– doesn’t break me out
– not heavily fragranced
– not a gazillion dollars

This stuff is *perfect*. And the best part is they carry it at the *grocery store* LOL so it’s super easy to pick up when I run out. 🙂 I’ve started using alba’s jasmine vitamin e cream as a night cream when my skin is dry and it’s great too.

p.s. for those who are aghast that I’m happy there is no sunscreen in this moisturizer, I wear it with avene emulsion spf 50. 😉

I have combination skin, which tends toward both dry and oily spots at the same time which is really annoying — so my moisturizer has to be oil-free (so my oily spots don’t break out) yet very moisturizing (so my dry spots aren’t like sandpaper). this makes shopping for a good moisturizer difficult for me, and I’ve tried many different kinds, but so far the one that seems to work best for me overall is Shiseido Pureness Mattifying Moisture. It leaves my face nice and soft, looking luminous, and I never feel sticky or too dried out.

I believe I have already found my HG moisturizer and these are the benefits I get by using it:

– moisturizing without being thick/greasy
– fast absorbing
– oil-controlling (and does not break me out)
– softens and smooths out skin while minimizing pores
– brightens skin, giving me a youthful glow
– leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh

i like a gel moisturizer that isn’t too think because i have combo/oily skin. It needs to leave my skin feeling soft and clean! no yucky residue!

I want a moisturizer that is
-Ultra rich
-Has a cooling sensation
-Fine texture
-Smells good<3
-Fair trade is always nice
This is why I like my Body Shop body butters

I have very oily combination skin, so I want something that will moisturize the dry areas without making my face look super shiny – something lightweight that won’t clog my pores.

I like lightweight moisturizers with SPF. I like it to be oil free and fragrance free. I want it to have antioxidants to fight free radicals, leave no greasy film and to absorb well into skin while keeping it plump. I want a smooth more liquidy texture with a decent amount of water in it.

Right now I love Lancomes Aqua fusion continuous moisture lotion with spf 15. That one is heaven for my combo/dehydrated skin. For more moisture I like Clinique superdefense for Normal to dry skin with spf 25. During the day when I’m feeling a little dry I like Clinique moisture surge for instant hydration.
