Another plus for Korres wild rose cream. I use it as a night time moisturizer, and find it a little too thick for daytime use. For daytime I like Ole Hendriksen's Sheer Transformation. Both a bit costly, but oh so nice!

I like La Roche Posay hydraphase legere. It's not too creamy, so it hydrates my combination skin without making it greasy. It's very light on.

Moisturize in the morning and the evening!

I use a moisturizer with salicylic acid in it to lightly exfoliate and clear out pimples (Philosophy Hope in a Bottle) in the morning, and at night I am using Philosophy's Miracle Worker moisturizer (anti aging). I'm almost done with the Miracle Worker treatment though so I'll switch to another rich moisturizer.

I'm just thinking about getting it.
But still doubting between the light and the heavier version.
As we're heading to fall, I might get the heavier version afterall.

I have mixed skin that tends to be dry in the fall-winter.

I use moisturizer both morning and night, but my morning one is just a sunscreen moisturizer. At night, I like Chanel Hydramax + Active Creme, or Cerave PM and various serums and oils.

I gave my favorite Dr.Hauschka Rose Cream Light a break and started using Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentre because of all the great things I've read abd the fact that it's a models/celeb favorite product.

It's good but I don't see what the big deal is about it. I think I'll go back to Dr.H after I finish it.

Anyone else thinks it's overrated??

I don't love either, but I'd favor Embryolisse over Dr. Hauschka any day of the week. The Rose Cream Light didn't do much for hydrating my skin, and seemed to really clog my pores up after using it for a few months -- I've never had an issue with breakouts or problematic skin.

What's your skin type? La Roche Posay makes a good one that soaks in well, Hydraphase UV but I believe it's targeted at sensitive and/or dry skin.

I'm currently using the Toleraine Ultra by La Roche Posay and am absolutely loving it. I just layer if over La Roche Posay Anthelios sunscreen.

I miss using Decléor Instant Radiance Moisturizer, I absolutely love the glow it gives! So bummed that it doesn´t give me enough moisture during the colder months. I need to find a moisturizing serum or something so use under it, then it might work.

Try using one that has zinc oxide or titanium dioxide in it. They are mineral sunsreens and physically block the sun. Chemical sunscreens, like in most moisturizers, absorb the uv rays, not block them. They also tend to be more oily, for me at least. Also the fact that some people say the chemical based ones release free radicals and break down on your skin...eww if they are right. Anyway, I like the Yes To line that is made in Israel. I have used the Yes To carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes line. I like the cucumber day lotion with spf 30 the best. It is very soothing and does not make me any more oilier than my normal skin already is.
