March Staff Picks: The Category is... Moisture!

125 people have responded

Is it just me or has this winter been particularly dry? I think it has something to do with all the snow we’ve been having in New York and other parts of the world. Our radiators and heaters are cranked to the max, heating the air and evaporating every drop of moisture within it. My skin has been noticeably uncomfortable first thing in the morning and I’ve even had the occasional nosebleed, but I refuse to buy a bulky humidifier for my tiny apartment! But enough about me. I know a large portion of the Supergreat staff deals with dry skin on a daily basis and we all have different ways of coping and soothing our moisture barren skin so I went around the virtual office and asked everyone to share their top moisture picks for March! Here are their must-haves for hydration:

Savannah: Hey Dewy Portable Facial Humidifier & Ever Eden Nourishing Baby Face Cream + Baby Lip Balm

Savannah is the “driest bitch in town.” Those are her words, not mine, but it’s probably true. Before the pandemic, the sound of a spritz bottle was nearly constant in our office. Savannah was always the culprit, dowsing her skin in layers of hydration. I kind of miss that sound... Since the beginning of the pandemic, she’s found a new way to constantly hydrate her skin—the Hey Dewy Portable Facial Humidifier. She has it constantly aimed at her face while she works and sleeps. Plus it has a USB cable so she can hydrate in the car during her next roadtrip! Of course, shooting water at your face isn’t enough. You have to lock it in. For that, Savannah has been loving the Ever Eden Nourishing Baby Face Cream and Baby Lip Balm. Yes, these products are for infants, but that just means they’re gentle enough for Savannah’s sensitive skin. As Savannah says, “I AM NOW BABY!”

Abi: COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream & Vaseline

Confession time! I used to never wear moisturizer on my face. Every moisturizer I tried either broke me out or felt tacky and heavy on my skin. Before you start commenting on my reviews about the importance of moisturizer, I want you to know I’m not a heathen. I didn’t just cleanse my face and go. I used to moisturize by applying a hyaluronic acid serum and locking it in with a hydrating CBD oil, but I finally found the perfect moisturizer. It’s the COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream. It’s made with 92% snail mucin so it has a very stringy texture, which seems like it would just sit on top of your skin, but it doesn’t! It soaks right in so your skin feels like skin. Keeping with the gastropod mollusc trend, I’ve also been a big slugger lately. As the last step in my skincare routine, I slug under my eyes and around my nose with good ol’ Vaseline. These are the driest parts of my face so they need that extra layer of protection from the elements. Plus, I’ve found that my concealer applies better when there’s a thin layer of Vaseline under my eyes.

Yracema: Mugwort Essence & Rovectin Activating Treatment Lotion

Yracema made my goofy goober heart flutter when she described her skin as “that one Spongebob episode where he visits Sandy’s tree dome and he desperately needs water.” As a huge Spongebob fan and person with parched skin, I knew exactly what she was talking about. However, her moisture picks are new to me! Her first pick is I’m From’s Mugwort Essence which sounds more like a Harry Potter potion than a skincare product, but if it works like magic the way she says it does, sign me up! Her second pick is Rovectin’s Activating Treatment Lotion. It’s a toner + essence with hyaluronic acid and caffeine. Coffee is a huge part of Yracema’s morning routine so it doesn’t surprise me that she found a way to seep caffeine into her body through her pores!

Susie: Tower 28 S.O.S. Spray, Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer & Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream

If you tune into Cult Beauty with Susie Mondays at 8pm EST, then you already know that Susie’s recommendations are always spot on. If she says a product is good, I instantly add it to my cart, no questions asked. Susie uses Tower28’s SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray to add hydration between her skincare layers. “It’s part of my wet-face-before-moisturizer routine,” says Suzie. Her favorite daily moisturizer is Drunk Elephant’s Protini Polypeptide Cream, but when her skin is truly parched, she slathers on a thick layer of Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream. Susie has tried a lot of cult faves so you can trust that she isn’t just talking about a product because it’s trendy. She knows it truly works like no other!

Eliza: WLDKAT Mushroom + Moss Gel Cream, Humanist Beauty Herban Wisdom Facial Oil & Experiment Avant Guarde Mask

If you follow Eliza on Instagram, you probably already know all about her moisture picks. She has posted several stories over the past month proclaiming her love for these products. Most recently she has fallen in love with WLDKAT’s Mushroom + Moss Gel Cream after WLDKAT week. “I truely love every product in their skincare line,” says Eliza. She has also been using Humanist Beauty’s Herban Wisdom Facial Oil with CBD to lock in moisture and then she further locks in moisture with Experiment’s Avant Guard reusable silicone mask. The results are “NEXT LEVEL” according to Eliza. I have to agree. She has been extra glowy recently!

Michelle: Vaseline Problems Skin Therapy & Shea Moisture Coconut + Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Meet Michelle! She’s our newest team member and everyone on the Supergreat staff is already obsessed with her bubbly personality. Go follow her! As Michelle’s bio explains, she is a “drugstore baddie” and she uses some amazing drugstore products to moisturize her skin and hair. Her first moisture pick is great if you have eczema like she does—It’s the Vaseline Problem Skin Therapy Cream. “Literally everyone and anyone with eczema should switch over to this cream,” says Michelle. “This baby is also non-comedogenic which translates to heaven for anybody who has oily skin like myself.” Her second moisture pick is the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. “This is a big game changer in my everlasting natural hair journey because it keeps my hair, curly, supple, AND moisturized for days,” says Michelle. Don’t you just love her already solely based on her recommendations?
