I am officially obsessed with checking reviews for everything I buy on beautypedia now.
The worst is going through and reading reviews on items purchased before I discovered the site.
Most recently I saw the not so great review of Bio Oil, which I purchased this fall when in Vegas and my skin was insanely parched from the circulated air and dry weather. I had also just gotten an IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment and had some raw skin that needed healing.
Instead I should have remembered I had Aquaphor in my carry-on. This is a derm favorite for good reason, I could have continued using my other products and added a thin layer of this all over before makeup or I could have slathered on a think layer before bed each night.
I do utilize this frequently now- with the dry northeast winter- around my nose, lips, or anywhere that I am a little flakey (usually Bc of an aha/bha or retinol)
I could have also hit the Sephora located outside of the Venetian for a new moisturizer: these are some of my current favorites. I look for a moisturizer that is good for combination skin that also has a good array of antiaging ingredients.
