Moisturizing Matter - AF


According to An Island Life: 

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."


I’m on a mission to find my Holy Grail in nighttime moisturizer. The nighttime moisturizer I’ve been using lately? Well, I’m allergic to it. Dryness and red bumps. Itchy, red bumps.

*Whimper*

My skin is mad at me. Why? Because I’m still using the stupid moisturizer! Again, why? Because I paid good money for that jar of acid cream, and it’s past the return date, and I refuse to throw away that kind of money.

I know, I know. My skin is worth more than what I paid for that jar of cream. And yes, I am going to go back to my old stuff. But still.

Boo on me. Lesson learned.

My question today:

What is your favorite facial moisturizer?


If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at today's installation of Aloha Friday at An Island Life. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Laneige Water Sleeping Pack - Not greasy at all and I just love the "coolness" of the water-based cream. I think it's a Korean brand...

Tami said...

Hmm.. I'm a big fan moisturizers, I used to use only professional products (I'd get them at a huge discount) due to my cosmo license..and experienced the same as you.. LOL bumps ..redness and itching..
Now I only use Dove (in the morning spf 15) and Nivea night cream.

I love it.

Hope your skin is better soon!

Ave said...

Bridgette said...

My sister sells Arbonne and I love it!

Auntie E said...

MaryKay , I have been using it since 1968.

Kristi Maloney said...

Hi,

At night I use Nivea visage Q 10 Advanced Wrinkle Reducer.

For daytime, I like Neutrogena's tinted moisturizer Called Healthy Skin Enhancer. It contains a retinol treatment, spf 20 moisturizer, and a sheer tint. I used it as my foundation too....

Swoozie said...

I like Boots No 7 and Strivectin!I've been using Strivectin for nearly 6 months now and I really love it as it seems to be making a difference in my skin. Boos No 7 is some great stuf as well!

Aloha!

Origins' Brighter By Nature. It has SPF25/PA++.

Mighty M said...

I wish I had a favorite...not yet. But I use Oil of Olay a lot.

TheAngelForever said...

Love my Neutragena daily moisturizer that has no fragrance in it. So many others have made me sneeze and break out in a rash. I have very sensitive skin.

mommablogsalot said...

I don't really have a favorite yet and usually when I go to the store I can't remember which ones I've tried already.

Lyr said...

The one i use is called "comfort Zone" So awesome!~

Karen said...

Neutrogena...love it!

Insanitykim said...

I normally just rub in the massive amounts of oil that accumulated on my skin through the night; no wrinkles at ALL at age 35, but acne? Sigh...

sunshine said...

dont really have one... but love the suggestions on the others comments

Baba said...

I don't have a favorite yet. I do like the olay.

JamericanSpice said...

I'm using one from a survey I'm trying out. It's too oily. but it moisturize well.

Then I'll get one either from Neutrogena or Aveeno

Mommy24cs said...

My mom just brought me some new moisturizer that is amazing! It's made by oil of olay and it's in a red jar,I'm too lazy to run upstairs and check the exact name, but I've just started using it for the past two days and already I have noticed a difference!

LZ @ My Messy Paradise said...

I love Philosophy Hope in a Jar. It has AHAs in it to smooth your skin, and I relaly see a huge difference after a just few days.
I also really like Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer.

Julie@Momspective said...

Hmm....Neutrogena for oily skin, because mine stinks.

Jenni Jiggety said...

I love the Mary Kay Timewise! I buy it from ebay so I don't have to deal with a consultant!

blueviolet said...

I don't have any. I don't know of any!

!!The Obnoxious SAHM!! said...

you know i like that honey bee one... by Perlier. (or whateva they are) ... good stuff. ;)

golden girl said...

i try to avoid moisturizers. they make me break out, even if they are non-comediogenic {sp?}. i have naturally oily skin, so moisturizer is not essential for me. when i do get dry, like in the late fall and winter, i use Creme de la Mer. it's pricey but lasts forever. i wish i had as much money as J.Lo though. she buys tons of jars and uses it all over her body. that is why is skin is so sparkling pretty. aloha and take care.

Joy said...

It's Loreal something-or-other. Sorry, not much help here! :o)

Stacie said...

I really like the Biore facial products. They are my fav!

WhisperingWriter said...

This is probably bad but I don't use any...

James Ricardo The Actor said...

I use all Nivea products, to exfoliate, to moisturize, to sunscreen,to face wash, to shaving cream. I like to keep everything in the same family!

Jenjen @GottaLoveMom said...

I use NightSkin at night and Oil of Olay w/SPF during the day...
Funny, I was going to post something about moisturizers...
This week I was so tired and busy that one night I put a pimple cream on a pimple on my chin...but then I thought I put it down..but I ended up using it instead of my night creme...
I was laying in bed when I noticed my face was kind of feeling different - OMG! I put the pimple cream all over my face! Needless to say, my entire face was totallydry the next day...

Enjoy!

Alicia said...

I know this doesn't sound good, but I don't use any moisturizer, and I wash my face w/ regular soap!!!

But, my mom used Oil Of Olay when I was growing up and she would always tell me to use it when I got older. I love the smell of it because it totally reminds me of her!

MarcomMom said...

I know I'm supposed to leave some kind of high-toned pricey brand name, but I use Avon Renew when I'm on top of my game, and if I skip the routine at night, I honestly love the lightness of Kiss My Face Peaches and Cream. When I'm dry, dry, dry (like I am on this conference trip to Vegas), my facial skin just drinks that stuff up.

Rona's Home Page said...

I currently use one from a HSN line. Now that I'm unemployed it will be just plain Jergen's lotion.

Rona's Home Page said...

I decided to post a list of frugal grocery shopping questions on my blog.
I invite you to share your answers to some or all of them. I could use some help.
Thank you.

Nap Warden said...

I use Regenerist by Olay...Works for me, but I'm pretty clueless:O

Helene said...

I just use good old fashioned Oil of Olay!

The Blonde Duck said...

I can't use any. My skin is an oil slick.

Deb said...

I do like the Juice Beauty Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer during the day. I seem to skip that nighttime thing, I'm sure I'll be regretting that one sooner or later.
