The Magical Powers of Moisturizing

Happy Sunday! I just got back from a four-day whirlwind in Tulsa for a beautiful, barn wedding. 
It was a great trip, but I'm so happy to be home! 

As previously mentioned, Winter has its way with my skin, drying it up completely and laughing all the way through the holidays. It's impossible to stick with the same moisturizer I use during the summer months, so I'm left researching moisturizers 
(for a completely appalling amount of time). 

This is the most important step for me- finding an amazing, creamy moisturizer that doesn't clog my pores, but lasts throughout the day.  


This is a basic, but fantastic moisturizer that is readily available at your nearest Whole Foods. It's creamy, but not greasy, and absorbs well into the skin. And, I love that it's a natural, vitamin-based product.

My other winter obsession is a nighttime oil. As oppose to using a separate night cream, I just apply an oil under my moisturizer before bed. It's calming and leaves you with a dewy complexion in the morning. 
Full disclaimer: I was not satisfied with this product when I first purchased it a few months ago. It's hard to tell if it delivers any of the results promised. BUT the moisture is incredible and since adding it back into my nightly skin-care routine under moisturizer, I can notice a bit more glow when I wake up in the morning. So, first impression aside, it's a recent recommendation.

Does anyone have a moisture mask recommendation? 
I'm not completely satisfied with my current one by AHAVA.
