This hydrating lotion is one of my favorite discoveries of 2020! It is the perfect moisturizer for combination/oily acne-prone skin; super lightweight, not oily at all, very hydrating, a little sticky at first but it absorbs in a few seconds and leaves no film on your skin; the texture and hydrating power of this lotion reminds me of the Elixseri’s Skin Meditation serum.
One of the key active ingredients in this lotion is vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate) which provides both anti-aging and brightening effects. It also is potent with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, oil-regulating and barrier strengthening ingredients. BTW the packaging looks like a tube but it actually is a bottle with a pump dispenser. I usually apply 3 to 4 pumps of this lotion to my slightly damp face after a gentle exfoliation with the Ayuna’s Facial and a layer of Ayuna’s cellular oil (which is a light serum). These 3 products work great together preventing closed comedones, blackheads and occasional monthly breakouts, while reinforcing the skin barrier.
Overall, this hydrating lotion leaves my skin noticeably supple, fresh and moisturized, and doesn’t pill! You might need the richer version if you have dry/combination skin; the light version is good for oily acne prone skin (update: it might clog pores).
