and finally, she returns... again. it's been quite tough for my family here lately. one of the Pawlish Brothers deployed, then a little over twelve hours later my Nonna (Mama Pawlish's mom), died. her death was really unexpected and shocked us all... and i've kind of been sitting around, imitating a couch cushion trying to process things. i so appreciate all of you who stick with me through all of my irregular posting issues!! <3
i love Benefit's skincare... it's definitely one of my favorite brands i've tried and always have at least one of their products in my rotation. their Moisture Prep Toning Lotion is a moisturizing toner that not only hydrates skin but also helps other products to be absorbed into the skin better! it also smells fantastic... not overly perfumed, just smelling it makes me feel so happy :) i'm obviously terrible at describing smells... this is one you'll have to sniff in-store probably to make sure it works for you.
now that winter is here, my skin needs the little extra bump of moisture this product gives to keep me from getting flaky skin. since i use a lot of harsh products in order to keep my acne and oiliness (not to mention fend off fine lines and wrinkles), my skin is a lot more dry than it used to be in certain places. for some reason, my chin seems to bear the brunt of this! i will be using this product in the morning under my daytime moisturizer. it will be the first thing i put on, all i do in the morning is splash water on my face to rinse off the night's products... my face doesn't need soap in the morning, that absolutely does dry it out! i've been using it on and off for a couple years now and have no complaints. i do wish it was a bit cheaper... however, with skincare, i believe in paying for quality!
this product retails for $30 and you can find it where ever Benefit products are sold... i almost always get mine from Ulta :D THIS is the direct link to Moisture Prep Toning Lotion on Benefit's website, where it is also available for purchase!
i'm not going to make promises about how well i'll do with posting... i want to go back to posting regularly... but i just don't know! last month was so terribly difficult, and pretty shattering at the end, but i'm going to do all i can to make November better :D i hope that you all have a wonderful November, too!!
Happy Wednesday! Ria :)
