it has turned chilly

These are my best friends right now.

my favorite chilly weather products

my favorite chilly weather products as of the moment

My skin is dry. I have rough patches on my arms! Lips are also cracked. eeeek!

To make my skin a bit more hydrated, I am toting around and slathering on a more than usual amount of  Jergens. This helps with my dry skin. For the cracked lips, I have Burt’s Bee’s grapefruit lipbalm to lessen the dryness, I sometimes find myself applying the lipbalm just to smell the grapefruit scent!

For my bath soap I am currently using Nesti Dante soap as it is gentle and rich/creamy (triple-milled bar soap) with no parabens! For fragrance, I  am drawn to the light fresh Incanto Shine, using it almost everyday!

On weekend I seem to favor red lipstick this cold month. Making my NYX SnowWhite lippie a staple in my bag.

There I have shared my chilly weather favorite products, care to share yours?

Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer: thankful for this find

Since the cold months are here, I noticed something different. My skin is dryer than the usual. On my mind I was thinking finally, a rest from oily-ness! Maybe my pimples would be minimized. *wishful thinking…

But no, three weeks later, my skin felt like sand paper.

On my scheduled derma visit, I asked my derma about my sandpaper skin.

I was told to use a facial moisturizer, I was skeptic because I might get more pimples! I used to have a lot of products as part of my regimen. Hmmm… must not forget to write about my acne journey/products I used before. 

I have used moisturizers before and honestly, they sometimes felt thick, and too much for the humid climate we have. I was advised to use Cetaphil facial moisturizer. So, off I got to the nearest drugstore and proceeded to get a moisturizer. When, the bill came up. My jaw hit the floor. The Cetaphil facial moisturizer (250ml) is priced at 700+php. After shelling out for the derma treatment plus some derma made medicines, I am not going to shell out that much. Because if I did, I might as well give up my lunch for a week.

RC Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer

I looked at the counters and saw Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer.

I hurriedly looked at the price. For 50ml it goes for 120php. Not bad.

I quickly took photos of the two products side by side with clear close ups of the ingredients and hurried back to my derma, explaining my dilemma to my derma. It took 10 mins of waiting and yes, I was given the Go signal to swap the prescribed brand to Celeteque.

So, I used it twice a day. And googled about the Celeteque brand. I learned that it is made by Unilab, a local brand and they actually made specific celeteque lines to address different needs of people’s skin! I even took their skin analyzer test.  Take the test for yourself here. 

I have been using the moisturizer for a week now. My skin is not as rough as last week. Doesn’t feel as dry as before!

It did not give me a breakout. My pimple population stayed the same. Lols. And it also a gel type moisturizer, does not feel thick or sticky. That factor is a major plus for me.

I’m happy about it. And currently contemplating on getting more of their products.

Provided my derma allows me.
