In my last post I reviewed Zim’s Crack Creme Original Liquid Formula... today I have the Creamy Daytime Formula!
From the website:
“Zim’s CRACK Creme Creamy Daytime Formula is an herbal formula that softens and moisturizes dry, cracked skin. Developed by a pharmacist. Recommended for daytime use, complimenting nighttime use of the Original Liquid Formula . Use on Hands, Feet, Elbows, Cuticles & More.”
Starting with scent again… it is similar to the original formula but it’s not as strong. It also has aloe in it, so you get a bit of that in the scent.
The formula itself is a thicker lotion, which I like. It’s similar to Aveeno daily moisturizing lotion. I’ve been mostly using it on my hands, especially after I shower or wash my hands, as we have pretty hard water. The water mixed with the weather means I need extra moisture.
It absorbs super quickly, and instantly makes your hands (or whatever else) feel super duper soft. This is probably the softest my hands have been from using any kind of lotion. It does leave my finger tips a bit greasy, but it’s slight and with how soft my hands are… I can totally deal with it.
Overall, a great moisturizer. I would definitely recommend it! You can find it online at a variety of stores, or on Zim’s website
I don’t even want to tell you guys how obnoxiously dry my skin was at the start of winter, I decided it was definitely time for a skin care upgrade.
I asked a blogger group that I’m part of for suggestions, and a bunch of people said to try out First Aid Beauty.
I went to Sephora that weekend, tested a bunch of stuff and ultimately decided on the Ultra Repair Cream.
I’ve been using it every day since I bought it, and I have to say that it actually made a huge difference right away. My skin is noticeably more moisturized, not one patch of dryness. My makeup is looking so much better after I use this in the morning. It’s so good that I use it in the morning under my makeup and at night before I go to bed. The texture of it is a bit different, it feels almost whipped. It’s super soft, non-greasy and absorbs super quickly. The only thing that’s lacking for me is the scent, it’s just very lotion-y, and it look me a little while to get used to it. It’s not unpleasant, just kind of meh. I can definitely overlook the scent with these results, though.
Overall, amazing. I’m kind of obsessed with this cream, it is awesome. I actually want to go back and get the serum as well. First Aid Beauty will definitely be one of my skin care go-tos from now on.
I’ve been on a skin care kick, that’s mostly what I’ve been buying lately. I was browsing Ulta’s website before a trip there and I saw this! It immediately intrigued me, and I had to find it. Luckily, I did!
So, I always like to start with scent… this smells perfumey , but then as you lather it up you do get a hint of a weird almost raw eggy smell, its subtle but still weird lol.
The formula is thick, almost lotion like, and you only need a little bit because the name ‘pore foam’ is no lie, it seriously lathers up into a really rich foam.
I’ve been using it a few times a week, and I have to say.. so far so good! I was worried that it might break me out, but it’s super gentle and I haven’t had any bad reactions to it. It leaves my face feeling really nice and clean, yet not dried out at all. So, giving it an A+ and I can’t wait to try more products from this brand!
Have you tried anything from Skinfood?
It’s definitely starting to feel like winter around these parts, so I decided to share my updated winter skincare routine!
First step in my day is using this baby! I love this stuff, I know you’re not supposed to exfoliate every day… but I kinda do. I water it down quiet a bit so it’s just a little scrubby. It’s saved my face a few times.
This is my new moisturizer and I love it! I finished my Infinite Aloe moisturizer and needed a new one, so I figured I should get something super moisturizing for the winter. I’m usually very sensitive to new skin products, but Neutrogena has never let me down! This one is great, it’s pretty thick and super creamy, and you only need a little bit for your whole face.
My mom has been on a Clarins kick lately. She bought a whole bunch of stuff, got one of these and I inherited it. I’ve been using this as my nightly face wash. It’s creamy, lathers up nicely and is super gentle, seriously the softest bubbles ever.
And of course… my new favorite thing to do… pore strips. I use these once a week and loveeee them. Everyone makes fun of me when I have them on around the house, but that’s okay.
What are your go to products in the winter?
