i’m sitting poolside soaking up a few last florida sunrays before jetting back to virginia tonight and i am completely in awe of how well my skin has behaved on this little getaway. normally flying alone is enough to send my face reeling into a chaotic breakout, let alone traveling to a hot and sweaty (although beautiful!) climate. before i left, i switched my moisturizer to mario badescu’s aloe version with spf 15 and i’m thinking it’s made all the difference. i had been craving something a bit richer than the one i have been using and the mb team was quick to recommend the aloe option. this moisturizer is so ultra soothing. i slather it on morning and night, my skin completely drinks it in and is left feeling hydrated, smooth, and not at all sticky. the addition of spf 15 means that i am protected from those aforementioned sunrays and the aloe vera gel has already made a visible difference on my acne scars, just leaving things looking more calm and even. i’m a BIG fan of this newfound drama-free face and you can bet i’ll be repurchasing this little mint green bottle.
