If you're anything like me, you either go through weeks with skin that positively glows or dreaded days where acne seems to set up a family reunion — with every pimple invited! — right on your chin. While frustrating, I've learned that I can curb my breakouts by being disciplined with my skincare routine, especially when it comes to moisturizer.
Because I live in a region of the US where the temperature can fluctuate anywhere between 20 and 60 degrees this time of year (ugh), finding a dependable moisturizer that won't make my skin greasy can be a difficult task. Pair that with a love of running outside and showering a little too often, and my complexion is begging for help. Recently, I had the pleasure of testing out Marc Jacobs Youthquake ($59), which promises deep hydration thanks to pineapple enzymes.
Hey, if it can stand up against eight-plus hours on the slopes, it gets an A+ in my book.
Because I've been so loyal to Tatcha's Water Cream over the last few years, I was a little apprehensive to try out a new product. (What's the saying? If it ain't broke, don't fix it?) Well, I decided to take a risk by shaking up my skincare routine with Youthquake, and frankly, I'm happy I did.
A gel-cream that truly smells divine, Youthquake's paraban- and sulfate-free custardy texture seemed heavy at first. However, a little goes a long way and feels light and airy once it's applied. And because it's packaged in a three-ounce jar, one container will easily last you a few months.
Since incorporating the product into my daily routine, my skin has stayed totally moisturized through days filled with Orangetheory and windy walks to the office, and even a day spent skiing. Hey, if it can stand up against eight-plus hours on the slopes, it gets an A+ in my book. Scroll ahead to get a look at this moisturizer that will make you say, "Yep, totally worth the splurge."
