Ever felt like all the creams you slather on are, well, just sitting on top of your face? Like when you wash your face the next morning, you can still kinda feel the residue on your skin?
It’s an additional step in your regimen (you use it after you tone and/or before your moisturize), but it helps your skin in three important ways:
- It balances the pH level of your skin. This is important because facial washes tend to make your skin acidic, so this can help keep acne and dryness away.
- It preps your skin for hydration. The technology allows the creams you apply to penetrate beneath the surface.
- It locks moisture in. The top layer of your skin has a hydro-lipid barrier, which traps the moisture underneath. The facial water helps keep this layer is healthy even if you’re stressed, hormonal, or abusing your skin with harsh cleansers.
I’ve been using it for a few days now and I’m amazed by how soft my skin feels immediately after applying the moisturizer. Seriously, guys. I know this may seem like another product that you don’t think you need, but give it a try before you make any decisions. My suggestion: head to the Burt’s Bees counter (store locations here), swipe a few drops over your right hand, and apply moisturizer on top. Then on your left hand, just apply the moisturizer and observe. You’ll notice that your skin will feel softer and more comfortable.
