With cooler weather on the way, dry skin is about to become a problem for a substantial number of us, and that means one thing: a darn good moisturizer. I'm on the hunt for something new and great myself, so I liked this review of L'Occitane Immortelle Very Precious Cream ($75). Reader ejfish provides a helpful breakdown of the product's pros and cons:
"Likes: Leaves a velvety soft film on my skin every morning (not an oily slick shine). It doesn't cause breakouts/congestion. Once absorbs into the skin, it doesn't feel heavy at all. After three weeks of use, my skin feels visibly softer and smoother. Dislikes: Certainly isn't one you'd buy without thinking twice. It's worth it for me since the last 50mL jar of cream I had lasted me a year (of course, that's with me straying to different brands in the meanwhile). Tip: The cream is thick and solid because of winter (I think). I usually warm it up between my fingertips and pat it all over my face before I massage it in. Note: My skin is very dry—to the point that it peels. This moisturizer stopped that from happening while I was using it"
