Skincare 101: The skin’s moisture levels are controlled by lipids, oily substances produced by the epidermis (outer layer of skin). An epidermis that is deficient in lipids allows water to escape from the skin and evaporate, causing dryness. Chilly temperatures, cold winds, low humidity, and dry indoor heat cause water to evaporate from the skin because there is more water in your skin than in the air. Combat winter skin with nourishing and hydrating skincare.
In the winter, we need to add products to our skincare regime that protect from the harsh elements. If you are still using your normal, summertime, lightweight moisturizer, bump it up to a more emollient one. boscia Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15 is an advanced cream that delivers continuous moisture to reverse dryness, help diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone and dullness, and restore luminosity and brightness. This cream additionally provides SPF 15 protection, which is essential for the prevention of future damage from harmful UVA/UVB rays and other environmental stresses.
Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15 contains a highly-effective proprietary botanical formula:
- Trehalose Derivative: a plant sugar that has water-binding properties and a powerful skin-conditioning humectant that provides continuous, long-lasting skin moisture.
- Magnolia Bark Extract: brightens skin discoloration and improves skin elasticity and firmness by preventing the breakdown of collagen and elastin by UV light.
- Mulberry Extract: provides whitening and brightening effects, prevents discoloration such as age spots and improves skin dullness.
- Mallow Extract: helps reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
- Palmitoyl Penta-Peptide: promotes skin firmness, minimizes and prevents fine lines and wrinkles.

boscia Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15 is by far the most hydrating daytime cream I have ever used. The gel-like consistency quickly absorbs into the skin and feels amazingly nourishing. TRUTH: If the bottle did not say “SPF 15” – I would never believe it contained sun protection. There is no trace of white residue or heavy, overwhelming texture. This cream does not make the face look shiny or slick, but healthy and glowing.
Win the battle against winter skin with boscia Restorative Day Moisture Cream SPF 15.
Oribe Texturizing Spray is an invisible dry hair spray that creates incredible volume and texture. Patented polymers absorb oil at the roots, creating volumptuous-styled hair for days.
Many reviews have categorized this spray as a dry shampoo. I would not recommend this product for purely this reason, it is so much more. One mist of this texturizing spray creates a dry-matte grip and massive body in the hair. Yes… It will absorb oil but this product creates a dry and almost crispy hair texture, so a small amount is all that is needed.
Perfect for creating up-dos and trendy styles, braids, twists and/or messy buns. This spray is perfect for obtaining ‘beachy’ texture and instant second-day hair. This body-building spray dries to an invisible finish leaving no white residue and smells wonderfully citrusy with a hint of musk.
Oribe Texturizing Spray transcends flat hair to full hair. Try-on some texture today.
Living in California, I am constantly wearing, testing and trying new sunscreens. It is quite a battle sometimes, as my skin is slightly sensitive to Titanium Dioxide. I loath the “white face” residue certain sunscreens tend to leave behind and am always on the lookout for a product that is light, fresh and feels weightless.
Tocca Stella SPF 30+ Sunscreen Towelette: These individually wrapped towelettes make sun-protection a cinch. Enriched with vitamins E, B5 and aloe, this sunscreen protects and moisturizes even the most sensitive skin, on-the-go.
Zinka Face Stick SPF 60: I have used Zinka products ever since I was a little girl. Although, I have matured from the hot pink color to clear, this product is still considerable. Zinka is a physical sunblock, in which it does not absorb into the skin, but sits on-top. Zinka products contain 5% zinc oxide which is a mild antimicrobial and wound healing substance. This sunscreen is too chalky and opaque for daily use but it is my go-to sunblock for an active day at the beach.
Colorscience Sunforgettable Mineral Powder Sun Protection SPF 50: This exceptional lightweight mineral powder is sheer and feels invisible on the skin. It is non-irritating with UVA and UVB sun protection. The self-dispensing powder brush makes re-applying simple and the it does not leave a “cakey” finish to the skin.
Kiehls Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+: The featherweight texture of this sunscreen feels like water on the skin. It is oil-free and extremely long-lasting broad-spectrum sunscreen. Kiehl’s Insider Tip: Layer over your moisturizer on clean skin for optimal UV protection and to help prevent skin aging.
