Next week, I’m going to be sharing my pregnancy skincare routine but I wanted to take a post to highlight one of my newer products that I’m already crazy about. As I’m sure lots of you can relate to, last winter was so cold and dry that my skin became very dry and irritated. I even found myself using Aquaphor (which is my “mom cure all product” that I put on EVERYTHING) on little areas on my cheeks just to get anything to moisturize and protect my skin. As you might expect, that got a little oily and didn’t really help as much as I had hoped.
Over the past 6 months, I’ve started using several Le Metier de Beaute skincare products and have really been happy with the results. One of their newest products, The Ultimate Hydrator, is something I’ve already integrated into my routine to get my skin winter-ready.
- When do you use this product? Consider it a moisture booster. You use it as the very last step of your skincare routine. I use it regularly at night after I apply my moisturizer. I don’t use it every morning, but if I feel like I’m a little dry (well hi there, hormonal skin!) I will put this product on right before my foundation, where it almost acts like a primer to really prep your skin for a smooth makeup application.
- What does it feel like? Smell like? This is NOT the thick, heavy moisturizer that you may be imagining. It is super light in texture and absorbs very quickly. This is actually something I’ve found to be the case all of my Le Metier de Beaute products, which is one of the reasons I like them as much as I do. As far as smell is concerned, I feel like I’m overly sensitive to smells with this pregnancy and I don’t pick up anything – another reason I like the Ultimate Hydrator!
- Why do I need this product? It’s a great addition to your routine for winter moisture. For me, I can say that it makes my skin feel very smooth and soft and even refreshed and calm. Not to mention that it also helps reduce the depth of wrinkles! I will happily be continuing to use this one all winter long and probably more as my skin goes through the changes of pregnancy and postpartum.
If you’d like to call Neiman Marcus to order this product, call 248.643.3300 ext. 2104 and ask for Kim. Don’t forget that you still get free shipping when you call the store!
What are some of your favorite winter skincare products? I wish they made a body equivalent of this one, so if you have a favorite, please tell me!
