Kiss that scaly dry skin goodbye!
I know I mention it a lot but I have severely dry skin! I grew up in the humid, tropical climate of Florida so I never really used lotion at all (except sunscreen) until moving to Utah. During my freshman year of college, I resembled something closer to a crocodile than a human since my skin became so scaly and dry. I recently found out that if you don’t keep your skin as moisturized as it needs to be, the possibility of wrinkles doubles and we cannot have that!
Let me start by saying I have tried everything under the sun. Creams, gels, at least 20 different lotions, it’s hard to find ones that work without leaving your skin greasy and uncomfortable. The most dry part of my body is easily my face so I focus on how to take care of your face and neck in this post. I know a lot of people have the opposite problem. However, it is still ideal to cleanse and moisturize your face often or else the oils will keep coming back.
I wanted to try some of Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea products in their skincare line since I have already tried some in their makeup. I got the limited-edition hydration vacation skincare travel set so I could try out all of these products since I knew they complimented one another. The set included:
- a cleansing gel
- a H2O hydrating boost moisturizer
- pack your bags 911 undereye rescue patches
- a 4-in-1 setting spray
The box says that all of these products are travel size. I still think they are quite large for being a miniature set. I also decided to get the Rainforest of the Sea eyeshadow palette to compliment the other products I was using and have used in the past from this line. Through testing all of these products over the past two weeks, I am very pleased with my results.
Deep Dive Cleansing Gel
I am a snob when it comes to the products I use to wash my face. I am very sensitive to a lot of products so when I find a good one I sing its praises. This washed all the makeup off my face but was really gentle on my skin as well. I didn’t feel any irritation and all of these products smell incredible which definitely helps! I have a face scrub I use a couple times a week when I need that extra exfoliation. However, I use this is an excellent gentle everyday cleanser.
H20 Hydrating Boost Moisturizer
This one is my absolute favorite! I have a really hard time getting my skin moisturized and having it last through the night, especially right after washing. It’s hard to find a product that wasn’t greasy-feeling since I hate having that on my face when I sleep (or anytime really.) I usually wake up with dry patches on my skin, but I don’t get any of that with the moisturizer. It’s really light-weight and leaves my skin feeling better than it has in months.
Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches
These amazing things help to take away the puffiness from under your eyes. I haven’t had a chance to try them yet, but I am so excited to! I have started working full-time and staying up later than I have in a long time in order to get everything done. If anyone truly needs this product, it is probably me haha. I will definitely let you know once I test these for sure!
Rainforest of the Sea Marine Boosting 4-in-1 Setting Spray
This spray smells amazing and is one of my favorite products when it comes to taking care of dry skin. It can be used as both a primer and a setting spray while misting your skin with a hydrating mist. It’s always nice to have that extra boost on top to seal in all of the moisture and nutrients that my skin so desperately needs.
Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette
These colors are all so pretty and are named after different things on or near the sea. If you don’t like the glowy, glittery look, then this palette is not for you. I think it is the perfect compliment to the other Rainforest of the Sea products. Some eyeshadows dry out and flake away, but this one lasts all day. I would recommend putting on multiple layers since it can be difficult to get a more pigmented color across the lid.
This products have helped me combat my chronically dry skin. I know that I will be using them for a long time. If you have any tips to get rid of dry skin, please share in the comments below.
