Ask Marissa…Moved to the Desert

Jane Doe: (I just moved to the desert.) Do you have any recommendations on skincare products. I have been using Clinique, Shiesido, and other stuff, but looking for a good affordable one to try out. The weather here in Vegas is dry so something new will be good. Thanks for your help!
Me: It depends on what your main skin concern is. I like different brands for different things.
Jane Doe: I have sensitive skin but mainly dry out here in the dessert. Funny, my skin was oily in the Bay (Area) haha. Any good suggestion on moisturizer?
Me: For the day time, I would stick with Clinique. I love their Superdefense cream for very dry skin ($42.50). Here’s my blog about it:





At night, I love Origins Night-A-Mins cream ($36). It’s really thick, but it won’t break you out.


I know you wanted something less pricey, but you really get what you pay for in a moisturizer.
Cleansing can be a little cheaper though. I like either Aveeno Positively Radiant cleansing pads (average price, $7) or Oil of Olay Daily Facial Hydrating cleansing cloths (average price, $6).


Hope this helps.
