I’ve been quite fortunate over the years that I have been blessed with pretty good skin. Yes, there’s been the odd breakout, dark circles, and dry patches (literally), but overall a pretty clear complexion. Now that I’m in my 30’s I find my skin needs more love than it used to. Gone are the days of going to bed with my makeup on, using eye makeup remover in the morning with a splash of water, followed with a crappy moisturizer. I now need to put in some effort.
For me the key to a pretty and natural look is healthy skin. Yes, I wear makeup, but I don’t want to be caking it on to cover things up. A few months back I was introduced to Estee Lauder’s Nutritious collection. I have been so happy with the results. I’m especially in love with the Radiant Vitality Essence Oil ($50 CA) and the Radiant Vitality Energy Lotion ($55 CA). Both are actually in oil form , are super moisturizing, but surprisingly not oily on my skin. I love that a little dab will do ya. I use this stuff every day, twice per day and I’ve barely put a dent in the bottles. I think soft healthy skin is definitely worth the investment.
