I have a big announcement to make. I think I’ve found my favorite moisturizer, and it’s the Natura Bisse NB Ceutical Tolerance Recovery Cream.
Yes, this might seem like a small, trivial announcement, but for something that I put on my face twice a day everyday, it’s pretty important to me. I’ve been searching for the past year or so for a go-to moisturizer that is paraben-free, has anti-aging properties, and has no strong scent. I’ve tried Clarins Multi-Active Night Youth Recovery Cream – scent was WAY too strong and the product is not paraben-free. I went natural and tried Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, which I really wanted to love because it’s 100% natural and organic, but the scent was too overpowering for me as well. I also tried a bevy of other moisturizers – some by Kiehl’s (not paraben-free), some by natural brands I came across at Whole Foods, but nothing fit the bill. I find that natural brands have scents that are too overpowering for me.
Then, Mimi blogged about her facial experience with Natura Bisse NB Ceutical line. Natura Bisse isn’t a brand that’s typically top of mind for me, because it’s pricey and doesn’t scream paraben-free to me. However, the new NB Ceutical line is allergen and paraben-free and is designed to increase the skin’s tolerance to internal/external elements. This was based on their observation that there is an increasing number of people with skin sensitivity issues. I don’t necessarily have sensitive skin, but the less irritants I can put on my face, the better.
I decided to take the $155 plunge and get the Natura Bisse NB Ceutical Tolerance Recovery Cream at beautybar.com (which has a $15 off coupon code BFRESH + a GWP code BBNAT + 5% off on eBates.com!).
I LOVE THIS MOISTURIZER. It’s this peachy color, and it just sinks into my skin. It is not irritating and moisturizes my combination skin without making it oily. I can’t put my finger on the scent – I don’t care for it, but it’s not offensive to me, and I am very sensitive to scents. This is very pricey, but I still HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to those in their late 20’s and up who want a moisturizer with anti-aging/protective properties.
Have you tried this? What is your favorite moisturizer??
