Seeing as moisturiser is so important, it just makes sense to get a good one. One that is actually doing something for your skin, instead of just floundering around on the service pretending to hydrate you. It don't matter if you spend the earth on a good quality foundation, if your moisturiser isn't a good one, it's just not going to go on as nicely.
I recently discovered a tiny pottle of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream in one of my many goody bags procured from fashion week. What a tiny pot, I thought to myself. Can anything that worthwhile really come out of such a tiny pot? The answer was yes!
I'd recently run out of my other favourite moisturiser (Quench by Osmosis) and figured it couldn't hurt to try out this new "Ultra Facial Cream". I mean, the name says it all really. I LOVE this moisturiser! It is super light weight but still very hydrating. It feels good to the touch - never sticky or oily. It absorbs quickly. It never irritates my skin and it has no odour. If you have read pretty much any of my other beauty reviews, you know how I feel about odours in face creams. Pa-toowie!
I was talking to my mother in law one day, after I'd been using Keihl's for a few weeks. She mentioned she had found the "best moisturiser ever". She loved how it absorbed so easily and didn't feel sticky. I wasn't convinced.
"I think you'll find that I have found the best moisturiser ever." I started, about to launch into a rave about the wonders of kiehl's. But my mother in law pressed on.
"No, this one really is the best." She got up to go and get it, so she could prove her new moisturiser really was superior. She walked back in to the room a minute later clutching her very own jar of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream in her hand. "This is it" she said "The best moisturiser ever!"
