On this same trip to Sephora, I also needed to pick up a new face lotion. I hate trying to find a good face lotion. I think my face is a snob, because the only ones that seem to work for me, cost $30 or more. When I ran out of my absolute favorite face lotion, N.V. Perricone’s Firming Moisturizer ($280!) I had to turn to other options. I would never spend $280 on face lotion, by the way. It was sent to me back in April, and I’ve been slowly using it…trying to save every last drop. But alas – I got to the bottom, and it’s gone. May it rest in peace.
Moment of silence.
Anyway, so the only other face lotion I had at home was Aveda’s Hydrating Lotion. It’s supposed to be quick-absorbing…but it’s not. (At least not on my skin). Within a week, I had a mini break-out, and that hasn’t happened to me in ages. I had to quit using it – and I banished it back to under the sink (until I run out of my next face lotion).
While trying to find the perfect face lotion – I found myself standing in front of Murad’s products. I was trying to hurry – because I brought my boys with me, and they were running around Sephora screaming “Ew! You can see her boob!” (Don’t know if you’ve ever noticed, but they have pictures of half-naked women all over the place. I had never noticed before, but leave it to my 8 and 6 year old boys to point it out to me.) Anyway, back to my point. I’m quickly trying to pick a face lotion (by now the boys are running around sticking their fingers into all the samples), and I grab Murad’s Skin Perfecting Lotion. I ask the Sephora saleswoman if it’s a good lotion, she says yes, and I immediately pay for it – and head home.
I love this lotion for two reasons. First – because you only need a teeeeenie tiny amount to cover your face. Should last me quite some time. Second of all – and most important, it dries completely – leaving my skin feeling hydrated and not the slightest bit greasy. It absorbs completely leaving my skin soft as a baby’s butt.
