Clarins Hydra-Essential Cooling Gel Moisturizer

Press Sample Affiliate Link A few months ago I joined a new network that is specifically geared toward Instagram and Youtube more than the physical blog.  While I love my blog, sometimes I get a little overwhelmed when work is busier and my son’s schedule is all over the place. The network is Octoly (for those curious) and it allows me to try out new brands and do mini reviews or features on my Instagram account. What does this have to do with Clarins Hydra-Essential Cooling Gel Moisturizer? Well, I received it through Octoly to feature on my Instagram, and I loved it so much that I decided to do a full review on it.

Through both their products and their campaigns, they’ve helped women everywhere…

Keeping Moisture Locked In This Winter

Sponsored by CVS & Mirum Shopper Winter’s not over yet and it’s still very important to take care of your skin during these chilly months. As you probably already know, one of the best ways to keep your skin healthy and hydrated during these months is to moisturize. While my skin doesn’t get super dry, it does get tight and itchy during the cooler months and seeks relief. Luckily CVS can help me with keeping moisture locked in this Winter so I don’t suffer! I took the quiz and it said my top products should be St. Ives Collagen & Elastin Body Lotion, Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser and Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash.
