Skin Smoothers: Banish Dry Skin!

Hey, guys! :D

I'm so happy to find some time to make a blog post. :)
One midterm, and one Friday class, and it's Spring Break, yay!!!

Anyway, weather can be so weird - one day it's soooo hot, the next it's freezing. But the weather I hate the most is when it's windy! It makes my skin dry up so much more than it normally does. I absolutely hate dry skin, and that's why I like trying different kinds of face cream. :)

I have a pile of People magazines, I was going through them, and I saw this page showing what some celebrities use to fight dry skin.

***(I was able to scan tons of interesting pages from People! I will be sharing them with you guys! :D)***


1. Lancome Galatee Confort Comforting Milky Creme Cleanser ($30)

"It's so moisturizing. I don't need lotion, and it takes off all my makeup too." --Raven-Symone

This sounds great to me! From how Raven described it, I think it's worth the $30.

2. Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream ($60)

"This cream has been fantastic during this brutal winter." -- Julianne Moore

A really good and effective face cream is very important, especially during Winter. And, more so for you guys who get snow and really low temps - I can only imagine!

3. Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum ($65)

"This serum is awesome. It makes my skin feel amazing."
-- Jessica Lowndes

Right now, I am using a face serum. So far, it's working well. :)

4. La Prairie Advanced Marine Biology Day Cream SPF 20 ($175)

"It's thick but light, my favorite combination, and has a lovely fresh scent." -- Ginnifer Goodwin

This sounds amazing, and for that price, I think it should work really well.

5. eos Lip Balm Smooth Spheres, in five flavors, Summer Fruit (around $3.29)

"These are perfect. I love the flavors, and they smell good."
-- Whitney Port

I know a lot of bloggers love this! :D I actually have yet to get one. ;)

Oh, and guess who else likes these cute lip balms... None other than Chuck Bass himself!

Have you used any of these 5 products? Which ones do you want to try? How do you fight off dry skin?

Have a happy Thursday! :D

  15. lovely post! thanks for sharing ; )


  16. Like what you got going on here with your blog!when you get a chance come and stop by my blog sometimes and if you like what you see become of my follower!

  17. I love the Kiehls will have to try this one! xo

  18. Never used any of these products but maybe I'd try the first one since it's the most affordable, and still that's pricey for me. Then again maybe I shouldn't be so cheap when it comes to my skin :/

  19. lol at chuck bass using eos! hahah he just looks so manly using it too! jk lol But it isn't about being a man, but having chapped lips. hahah If you get around to trying the Nivea body lotion it has a baby powder scent to it so if you don't like that smell...don't get it! Personally, I don't mind, but I don't love the smell either. So its whatever to me. hahah =]

  20. Kiehl's Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream sounds amazing, but damn it's pretty expensive!

    I keep hearing about the EOS lip balm, and seeing it practically everywhere I go, maybe I should try it? It’s cheap and cute looking, but I’m pretty picky when it comes to lip balms.

    OH and I forgot to tell you, but I tagged you for the handwriting post … Check it out --->

  21. Have not tried anything from the lip but the lipbalm have gotten a lot of buzz :D would love to try that! And I love lipbalms ;)

    Leeann-- yeah, for me, that is pretty pricey too! haha. ;)

    Leenda-- haha, yeah, isn't it funny? and i am so-so when it comes to baby powder smell too... as long as it's not overpowering. :)

    Dizzy-- oooh, cool! thanks for the tag!

    a!k0-- i love lip balms too! :)

  23. I want that lip balm, I don't think I can easily find it here in Italy ! But if Chuck Bass likes it then it's deffo a must have, haha ! =)
