As I type this, we are currently under a Wind Advisory, with winds up to 40-50mph. This comes in the same week as an odd Spring snowstorm and tornado watches, with a few thunderstorms thrown in for good measure. Ahhhh…..Spring in Oklahoma.
So, it is any wonder than my skin is all “WTF, Mother Nature?”? Yeah, I didn’t think so, either. Luckily, I have two things I have been carrying around with me this winter/spring to help my freaked out skin from being all tight/parched/itchy, which just drives me (more) batty. First up is my Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs And Rosewater. This is listed as one of Martha Stewart’s Must Have’s on their site, and it’s no wonder she loves it. It contains all kinds of good for you extracts: Aloe, Bladderwrack (yeah, I had to look it up, too), Herbal, Rose and Gardenia. It smells good and makes my face feel so much better, without being soaking wet. It takes away the dry tight feel I get in this wind and cold.
My other go to product is my Mario Badescu Lip Wax (SPF 15). It contains Lanolin, Palm Oil,Mineral Oil,Paraffin, Beeswax, Rose Hips Oil, Vitamin E Oil and Black Currant extract. It has a pleasant taste, but the main thing is that it doesn’t get all gummy on my lips and in the corners, which always bugs the heck out of me. It also lasts a long time, which with the SPF 15 helps since you never know what the weather is going to be doing around here. Now, I might have mentioned I carry a few lip products in my bag before, and, yes, I have added this to it – well, it’s not that I added to the list, it’s that this has the #1 spot of being used on the list, which is saying something.
