Now that it’s getting warmer, I wanted to find a lightweight moisturizer for every day. My skin is oily/combination + heavy creams aren’t necessary in the Summer, so I picked up the E.L.F. Soothing Serum ($12).
Made with purified water and essential skin nutrients like Jojoba, Aloe, and Vitamin E, it’s a silky serum that glides over the skin and absorbs quickly. Initially I was nervous that it wouldn’t be hydrating enough since most serums I’ve used in the past were more oil-based but I was pleasantly surprised. Even after heavy exfoliation + masks, it’s heavy enough to bring much-needed moisture back to my skin, leaving it feeling soft and plump. It also doesn’t compromise my foundation; it provides a great base for it.
If you have dry skin, this serum can be worn under moisturizer as well, but for oily/combination, it’s rich enough to be worn alone under sunscreen. It all just depends on the type of skincare cocktails you like to create.
