An ever so little reunion!

Hello everyone!

Today’s post will be about a product that I recieved the other day, after purchasing it a second time. I’m talking about the Moisture Bound Cream from Earth’s Recipe! Now, if you’ve followed our blog since pretty much the beginning (as it was one of our first posts), you might remember that I had a fling with this product a few months ago. But after I had emptied the jar, I moved on to another, and then another, and another, hoping that I’d come across an even better moisturizer. Turns out that I didn’t and I still haven’t. In other words; we’re back on the Earth’s Recipe Moisture Bound Cream! Stay tuned if you want to know how I’m getting along with this little gem this time around, and if you’re interested in my review on the product, you’ll find it here.

So it’s been three months since I reviewed the Moisture Bound Cream from Earth’s Recipe, and my thoughts on the product have changed a bit since then. Last time around I thought was pretty good, but now that I’ve switched up pretty much my whole skin care routine, and changed the way I use some of the products, I can tell that this product is even better than I thought. And here’s why:
The products I use before I apply the Moisture Bound Cream are better suited for my skin, and really gives it a chance to shine by providing a better canvas to work on, than before. A good moisturizer is meant to trap hydration inside the skin, making sure that it doesn’t get back out, leaving the skin dehydrated. But in order to do so sufficiantly, there has to be a certain ammount of hydration in the skin to begin with, something I failed to make sure of for a long time, including the period when I was using the Moisture Bound Cream. Since then I’ve thrown out quite a few products that simply were wrong for my skin, and replaced them with more hydrating products. And let me tell you, there is a world of difference. We’re not completely there yet, but we’re definetely getting somewhere! Hydrating products are such a game changer, at least for me. I’ve tried soo many different moisturizers, and I know from experience that you can apply the best moisturizing cream in the world, and it won’t be able to properly do it’s job of moisturizing unless you provide your skin with moisture beforehand.

I’ll be using the Moisture Bound Cream at least until this jar is empty, and hopefully I’ll have a newfound love for it and purchase it again. If you want to know how it goes, stay tuned and I’ll update you in a couple of weeks! I’m also planning to do a post on my updated skin care routine in the near future 🙂

Until next time,

Update: Banila Co’s Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream

Hey guys!

Today I decided that it’s time to give you all an update on what’s been going on with the Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream from Banila Co. Those of you that read my previous post about this product, already know that I temporarily ditched my Earth’s Recipe Moisture Bound Cream (reviewed) in order to continue my loving relationship with the Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream (reviewed). The main reason being that I suspected good ol’ Mr. Honey to be breaking me out! Naturally I wanted to find out if this was the case or if something else was causing the breakouts. As I’ve said before; I REALLY wanted to love the Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream, and I didn’t want to stop using it if I didn’t have to.

So what exactly has been going on?
I’m back with an update only 6 days after I began using the Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream again! Therefore some of you may guess that my little experiment didn’t go down so well. To those of you who did: You’re right! It didn’t end well…
This time around the cream didn’t break me out, it just didn’t provide enough moisture for my dehydrated combination skin, and accordingly didn’t perform the way I needed it to. In other words, I’m back on the Moisture Bound Cream from Earth’s Recipe. This one’s still not moisturizing enough for me, but it IS the most moisturizing cream I’ve tried so far. I’ll give it that! This whole experience with the Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream means that I’m still searching for the perfect moisturizing Cream! Maybe one of the creams I purchased in my last mini haul will have the power to knock out the Moisture Bound Cream? God, I really hope so.
