How to Find the Right Moisturizer For Your Skin Type

Best Moisturizer for Your Skin

Whether you are walking down the aisle of store or browsing online, the sheer amount of skincare is BEYOND intimidating!
There are vastly different ingredients, for a variety of different skin types… at all prices.
Without some focus and clarity, you could end up wasting a ton of time and money trying to find the right products.

Find What’s Right For YOU

Nordstrom has an AMAZING resource called the “Moisturizer Guide” that helps you find the moisturizer that is right for YOUR skin.
The results are based on a very short quiz.
My ‘top concerns’ are: dryness and anti-aging properties…
You can even factor in cream consistency. I explained how easy it is below.

CLINIQUE SET

My Results

When I completed the Moisturizer Guide, which took all of about one minute, Clinique Smart Night was one of the products that popped up.

(Another result for my skin type was the La Mer Mini Miracles Collection which I reviewed earlier in the week here.)

I’ve always been a fan of Clinique, and I think the pricing is great, so I decided to pick up the De-Aging Experts Set (above).
I like that the set comes with a day and night cream, eye cream and serum.
I have only been using this set a short time, so it’s too soon to report findings, but I will keep you posted.

What’s Right For YOU?

So… all in, I think I spent about five minutes finding a couple of regimes that are affordable and technically ‘right’ for my dry, aging skin.
The Nordstrom Moisturizer Guide makes the process SO much faster and easier!

A couple of things to consider before you click ‘buy’…

1) I would order a sample size or gift set when trying a new line to make sure you like it and it reacts well with your skin type
2) Consider whether you want a built in SPF. I happen to prefer that so I can skip a step in the morning.
3) Think about consistency. Maybe you prefer a thicker cream over a lotion or vice versa.
4) DO remember an eye cream. While it’s an extra step and expense, you have to take care of that delicate skin around your eyes.
I wish I could go back in time and share this with 30-year old Erin.
