The Range: Products for Dry Skin

Montana is a high desert, and since my arrive in Helena two weeks ago, my skin has been crying out for hydration.  Makeup doesn’t apply as well (or look as good) and my skin just looks and feels dry and tired.  Here is a list of products that I purchased this weekend to give my skin the drink it so desperately needs.

This Squalane Cleanser lives up to its claim that it’s gentle.  My skin feels clean, but not stripped, and that is the goal.

I don’t use serum at night when my skin is dry.  This Farmacy Niacinamide moisturizer gives me the impact of a serum in a calming, hydrating night cream.  It’s a Top 3 player in my skincare routine.

Need to remove makeup without tearing up your skin?  This Meltaway Cleansing Balm removes makeup with ease, but leaves your skin unpunished.

    I’ll have to check out the Biossance cleanser. The two Farmacy products are in my regular rotation and I love them! I recommend Biossance’s Squalane and Omega Repair Cream if you’re looking for a winter moisturizer and haven’t tried it yet. It’s one of my favorites.

    Would love to see a detailed post on your daily/weekly skincare routine! I know these can be a beast to write since there’s a different routine morning vs night vs weekend vs trouble spot etc, but I am really interested in what other women do on a regular basis to maintain themselves.
