Guys, the cooler temps are doing a number on my dry skin. I've been flaking off all week, shedding little bits of myself all over the place (don't even talk about my lips -- they are a peeling mess). The only other moisturizer that helps my skin whenever it gets this dry is the Kiehl's Cryste Marine Ultra Riche Lifting and Firming Cream however it was very sadly discontinued maybe 2 years ago and I've been sparingly doling out my last tub of this miracle cream.
Enter the Rose Hydrate Peaceful Skin Night Cream. Not only is it the owner of the longest night cream name known to man (and the most complicated actual brand name), it is also phenomenal!! I got this when I was in the UK earlier this year and did my 30-minute sweep of Boots (emerging dusty and triumphant, clutching 5 bottles of Bastiste dry shampoo and an empty wallet). It's definitely not for oily skinned girls -- it's luxuriously thick but absorbs into the skin almost instantly. I like to slap it on generously right after I wash my face in the morning, go about my coffee/ Youtube routine, and then go in after that with my makeup. It gets rid of flaky skin like no other, and the effects last all day. Makes inarticulate sounds of delight. I have the worst dry skin and I never find myself peeling in the middle of the day whenever I use this in the morning.
The only thing I could see putting someone off is the incredibly strong smell. It smells marginally of roses, but mostly of heavy floral perfume. This is a meh side detail to me -- I don't love it but I can live with it when it performs so beautifully on my skin.
I can officially declare -- new HG winter moisturizer. Hurrah!!
