Hi all! Wow, it's been a long, long time since I've written a blog post! I'm sure all of you that have gone through or are in college understand, though, that sometimes school work consumes your life. Also, this semester I've taken on undergraduate research in addition to my classes, so it's getting even crazier! However, today classes are cancelled due to snow, and I really wanted to seize this opportunity to give a review on a new product of mine.
I've done quite a few skincare posts in the past it seems like, and I've said before that my skin is oily. Despite that, this winter it has also been dehydrated. The kind of dehydrated where as soon as I got done washing my face I had to immediately put on toner/moisturizer, or else my skin started to feel and look like a desert. I don't think anyone likes that feeling, and I knew it wasn't healthy for my skin. Something had to be done!
I got a sample of this Michael Todd True Organics Hydration Boost Serum ($37.00 for 1 fl oz) with my order I placed for Christmas, and as within two days of using it I knew I had to have the full size! It's not a "band-aid" product that makes your skin feel better temporarily but doesn't actually change your skin. It penetrates deep down to the root of your dryness, and truly changes your skin. I use it in the morning (just because I have a different Michael Todd serum I like using at night) and it makes my skin more glowy but LESS oily, makes my foundation go on smoother, and believe it or not, it's gotten rid of some fine lines I had on my forehead that were a result of dehydration. The standout ingredients in this are blue green algae and hyaluronic acid, which "help strengthen the skin's moisture barrier" and "work to retain moisture." The only con is that, to me, it smells like pickles. Yes, pickles. But hey, I'll deal with it for these amazing results.
I really recommend this for those of you with dry skin, or just need some extra TLC this winter! If you guys have a favorite serum or product that helps with hydration, let me know in the comments below! Thanks so much for reading.
