Moisture Emergency

The boyfriend and I decided to take a mini-weekend getaway to Atlantic City.  We stayed at The Water Club, which I think has some of the nicest standard rooms in AC.  The deal breaker for me in hotels are their bathrooms -- and The Water Club does not fail with their beautiful rain shower and Lather amenities.

Anyways I decided to take this opportunity to attempt to cure Peter's dry skin issues.  For the past few weeks his face has been extremely dry, itchy, and he hasn't been able to stop touching his face in irritation.  This was a moisture emergency!  I went through my beauty stash and brought my best moisturizing products to give him a little soothing "spa treatment."

At Night:

I first washed his face with the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser.  This gentle cleanser has a soothing whipped texture and is formulated without parabens, sulfates, dyes, or fragrances.  It calms redness and is PH-balanced to maintain the natural acidity of the skin.


Next I applied the Cosmedicine Mega Moisture Mask and left it on for 10 minutes.  This cooling gel mask hydrates skin, restores skin's plumpness, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and soothes and calms irritated skin.


After rinsing off the mask I spritzed his face with Clinique Moisture Surge Facial Spray.  The spray contains active aloe and replenishes the skin's moisture level, restoring balance.

Finally I slathered on First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream.  This thick, rich, emollient cream contains colloidal oatmeal, Shea butter, eucalyptus oil, and ceramides, and is great for anyone with severely dry, scaly skin, especially for those with aggressive cosmetic treatments or skin conditions such as eczema.  

In The Morning:

Upon waking up he washed his face and then applied the Cailyn Supreme Hydration cloth mask which contains caviar extracts, 100% marine collagen, deep sea water adenosin, hyaluron acid, and bio cellulose.  This mask makes your skin firm and tight, nourishes the skin from inside, and maintains high levels of skin texture through the continuous renewal of its cells, and prevents dehydration.   

Afterwards he applied the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief.  This refreshing cream-gel is like a "drink" for skin -- instantly replenishing skin and continuously plumping it with hydration.   

 And lastly I gave him a bottle of Evian Mineral Water Spray to use throughout the day.  This delightful cool mist rehydrates skin suffering from overheated or dry air.  It also removes perspiration, harmful salt or chlorine, and instantly soothes and rehydrates sun-burned or wind-chapped skin.  Peter ABSOLUTELY loves this stuff.  We used up an entire bottle on our cross-country road trip and he's been asking me for another ever since.  Also great if you need to wake yourself up a little on a long drive.

And on a side note Caesar's opened a little 24-hour gelato cafe/bakery called Tazza with an amazing selection of desserts.  They have tons of bakeries like this in Vegas but I was excited to see one finally open up in Atlantic City!

Seems like you really know your stuff! By any chance would you know of any products that are good for getting rid of acne scars?

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
