Look, I'll admit it. This is where the WIC got me. Would I ever, ever, ever under any normal circumstances pay $34 for a moisturizer? No! I think paying $11.99 is highway robbery!!!
But it's my wedding. And we're talking about my face. So I caved and I bought it. I'm really glad I did.
I'm not going to flat out tell you omigosh, this stuff works! Because here is why it worked: this is a gel, not a creme moisturizer. Therefore, I could apply it six times a day without my face greasing up. Which I did. I would slather it on before and after showering, pile it on before bed, and reapply if I saw the slightest hint of dryness. My face didn't break out from it and was flake-free on our wedding weekend. So for me, it worked. I'm not sure if I'm going to buy a second container when I go through this, but the gel stuff is seriously awesome compared to a normal creme moisturizer. (Can anyone recommend a similar drugstore brand one? I've heard Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel...)
Now that the wedding is over, I'm using it at night and my skin is holding up okay, even as the temperature drops. Anyone else stupid enough to plan an October wedding when they know their skin is fickle?
