This one is maybe not quite as successful, the lotion doesn’t have enough contrast, but it is part of my daily routine. Usually twice daily. Especially in winter, when the air is so dry. My skin soaks up lotion like a sponge. I like the way I feel when I rub it on my cheeks, under my eyes, across my forehead.
Moisturizing my face, more than any other beauty routine I have, (granted, there aren’t very many) makes me feel like a woman who knows how to take care of herself. Like a woman who has-it-together. Like the heroine of a glamorous ad from a 1960 LIFE magazine. Like an easy-breezy, c’est la vie kind of girl.
