Even though I have very oily skin, it still requires hydrating love. I received a sample of Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid Skin Saver (5oz/$39) which sounded intriguing from the jump. Ceramides are "lipid molecules found naturally in our skin. They work to bind skin cells together, sealing in moisture and blocking out harmful microbes." Aging causes a loss of production in ceramides which leads to dryness, sagging and other signs of aging to the skin. This product is "packed with a small army of ceramides to deliver a powerful dose of moisture plus ingredients that strengthen and smooth skin for the long haul."
It has a serum like texture that is light and absorbs quickly into the skin, acting as a skin barrier from chronic water loss due to all the ceramides in the formula. It has a very light, herbal-like scent, is whitish in color, dermatologist tested, paraben free and may be used after cleansing the face morning or night.
So, did this skin saver save my skin as promised?
Verdict: I am always so wary of trying new moisturizers on my face because I am oily and sensitive (read: prone to breakouts), however, I have used the Dr. Jart+ BB cream off and on for years without any problems so I wasn't as concerned. I really liked this product! It has a very thin consistency that felt cool and soothing on my face, absorbed super fast without any residual greasiness or added oiliness and left my skin softly moisturized. My makeup went on easily (I used it in the morning) and plan to use it at night too. It is light enough to use during the hot weather months and probably feels terrific during the winter as well. You only need a drop or two for your entire face as well. Dr. Jart+, you stole my heart! For info/purchase, head to sephora.com
