Green Beauty Moisturizer Round Up

Green Beauty Moisturizer Round Up

A good moisturizer is one of the keys to happy skin. When your skin is moisturized, it'll be better protected, less likely to become irritated, and more balanced. If you've got acne, dry skin, sensitive skin, or skin irritations, you'll need a good moisturize to get things back to 'normal'. 

Oil /

If you prefer an oil based moisturizer, you'll love the Leaves of Trees Frankincense Argan Oil. To be honest, you'll love any of their argan oils (see full reviews of the line here), but the frankincense oil is such a great skincare oil. It's anti-aging, moisturizing, and very healing. 

The combination of argan oil and frankincense makes this oil a skincare powerhouse that's perfect for all skin types, especially those who need a little extra love.

Balm /

If you want a rich balm, you'll want the Face + Body Cream from Meow Meow Tweet. You might think it's a little heavy for acne prone skin, but I didn't feel that at all. It is a richer balm, but it's not heavy in a bad way.

The texture is just dreamy, and it melts when you apply it to your skin. It's very healing, and really nourishes your skin. You can also use this as a body cream, so you'll get the same benefits all over. 

Lotion /

If you prefer a light lotion, the Pure + Simple Skin Drink* is for you. While it's got a very light texture, this still moisturizes your skin. You won't feel heavy, nor will your face oil stain your pillow, but your skin won't be thirsty at all. 

Cream /

One of my favourites in this line up is the Sattva Pure Pure Glow Nourishing Cream (Discontinued) It's thicker than a cream, but nowhere near as heavy as a balm. It absorbs really well into your skin and leaves your entire face matte and comfortable, which is tough when you have sensitive, combination skin. 

What is your go-to moisturizer? 

With love,
