Phytomer Instant Repair - Ultra-Moisturizing Regenerating After Sun Cream
I recently had a great opportunity to try this product, on a beach getaway with my boyfriend. I was very happy with it. Usually, after spending the day in the ocean water and sun and rinsing off repeatedly, my skin feels really parched, and having also gotten tanned skin, it can also feel a little rough to the touch. This is a super creamy soft cream that goes on and instantly soothes the skin and plumps up the little fine lines and any scaliness when I had some light peeling. It’s fairly rich, so it’s not going to be for those with oilier skins, but I was also impressed that with my on- and-off sensitive skin, that was never irritated. The cream leaves a slight sheen, but does not look too greasy. With a nice tan the sheen actually complimented my skin. Just remember that this is not a sun block, so this is for evening, before applying makeup for the night out or before going to bed.

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the Moisturizing Gel Oil formulation with SPF15 and thought to myself, "now this is going to be a great product" - and sure enough it is! The consistency of the Moisturizing Gel Oil is like that of a thinned out honey (the color as well) - but not as sticky as I would have thought it would be upon squeezing about a quarter's worth into my palm before applying after my shower. This gel oil actually has a very nice, light feel with good slip. It gave me the most incredible sheen and hydration. It was a tad sticky on my body at first, but it absorbed very well and within a minute or two felt very lightweight - not heavy, greasy or gummy. My skin was soft, supple and smelled like their lovely cocoa butter scent. The effects of the gel oil lasted all day until my next shower - never any dry flaking skin after a few hours. For those of you who like to glimmer at the beach and bare your arms and legs during hot days, this is perfect for adding after a base layer of sunscreen (this product has SPF 15 already). I also got great results mixing it with shimmer lotion like my beloved NARS Body Glow at night.

I've been in a bit of a body moisturizer rut lately, so this came at the perfect time for me. I wanted a great feeling, great smelling, light but super moisturizing product - that also has SPF for at least moderate daily outdoor exposure. Body Double, from new Australian skincare line Hissyfit, hit the mark in all the categories above for me. I loved the creamy, silky light texture of the lotion and the fragrance is really nice! It's a little sweet/a little tart - (think a Creamsicle) from the blend of Vanilla, Almond, Orange and Grapefruit extracts it contains. After applying 1x day after a shower my skin was noticeably softer and smoother, but without a trace of greasiness. The lotion absorbed quickly but had a nice "moist" effect that I liked. I was left with a subtle sheen on my skin and with regular use I could tell that my skin was really supple throughout the day. It's a nice size for travel and I found it was very concentrated to a few pumps went a long way to make it budget friendly as well
