Editor’s Pick: Bushra’s Aquaous Oil-Free Moisturizer
I have to admit, I’m not a stickler for skincare. I go to bed without taking off my mascara (whenever I’m wearing some), and sometimes (I swear it’s only some nights) I don’t wash my face before hitting the sack. I know it’s terrible, but I’m working on it. While I’m guilty of not doing the best for my skin, the one thing I never skimp on is moisturiser. It’s a fairly recent realisation (actually much convincing on my dermatologist’s part!), but one that I have adhered to since the last five years.
I’m so glad we had some sort of winter in Mumbai this year, which meant no-sweat days which BTW is a big deal for oily-skinned girls! So I switched to a heavier moisturiser, but I’m noticing that the weather’s turning a wee bit warmer. Know what that means? Switching back to lighter moisturisers before my pores get clogged and result in that all too familiar horror story- breakouts! *shrieks* So I have been furiously scouring the internet to get that elusive moisturiser that will not melt on my skin, and will make me look dew. And so I present to you my latest fixation that is the NARS Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer.
NARS Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer
The NARS Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer is a lightweight moisturiser that’s best suited for oily skin types (read: yours truly). It’s a non-comedogenic, gel-based moisturiser and that’s a blessing because I can’t stand my skin looking and feeling greasy. It also gets absorbed into the skin quickly, which is great because ain’t nobody got time for this! Enriched with Dynamic Aqua Technology it improves water retention making your skin look plump and hydrated. The best part though, is that it is free of synthetic fragrance, parabens and alcohol.
