OH. my goodness. i’ve reached skincare nirvana
ok, this such a random thing to post about but i gotta share the love.
a series of unfortunate events last year left my (facial) skin in the worst shape it’s ever been.. reader’s digest version involves my face wash and moisturizer being confiscated by a grumpy TSA lady in Belgium (<— I don’t think they call them TSA in Belgium?) and living for 4 months on the equator with neither of the above, and coming back to the coldest, driest winter in a long time ok
but in any case it was bad. dry, red, patchy, flaky, bad. i had dry flaky patches on my t-zone. it sucked and it was painful?!?! any kind of cream moisturizer burned my skin no matter how “sensitive skin” friendly it was.
but everything has changed. let me cut to the chase and to the whole point of this post and tell you i found my holy grail skin care product for SUPER dry SUPER sensitive skin and it’s this.
baobab oil. yeah, like le petit prince baobab. 11-14 dollars, I got mine at Fred Meyer. I had tried super expensive skin oils (cough, cough) and while they’re ok, they didn’t change my skin at all. the baobab oil on the other hand is the best. shit. ever. it’s a thicker, richer oil and it actually sinks right into my skin instead of sitting on top of it. my dry patches are gone. goneeeeee. my foundation actually acts like foundation and not “dry patch accentuation.” and best of all my skin doesn’t burn when the wind blows on it. it makes being outside surprisingly more enjoyable.
my skin is happy and i’m happy and i’m sharing the love. it’s not like this blog is in any way cohesive anyhow.
