Sunday Review: CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

Hello my loves,

Today I thought I’d start a new series on my blog called Sunday Review where I do an in-depth product review. I really do enjoy doing these types of reviews because it lets me give you a solid opinion rather than just a few words here or there about the product. So, here we go!

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream:

This product retails for around twelve US dollars and can be found in almost any drugstore or online. The product comes with 12 OZ of product, which is quite a lot of product in my opinion for the price. The claim of this product is that it has 3 essential ceramides, which are lipids and oils that replenish your moisture barrier on your skin. There is no fragrance in this product and there is hyaluronic acid to help skin’s natural moisture.

I’m going to say right off the bat, I love this product. The first night I used it, I woke up and my skin looked hydrated and plump as well as seemed to have little redness in it and I usually have quite a bit. I have combination skin, but it tends to be dry lately so waking up with any sort of moisture is amazing! The consistency is nice and thick but it quickly absorbs into the skin and you don’t have to spend time rubbing it in. Since it is made with the ceramides, I personally like to massage the product into my face to make sure it is completely absorbed and working effectively.

There is little fragrance in this product other than the typical lotion smell which is found in almost every product. There is so much product in this container that you could use this as a body cream as well if you felt like it. I feel like because it is so thick, you do not need much of the product and therefore it could be used elsewhere other than the face. due to the fact that this is a jar container, you will want to make sure your hands are nice and clean before dipping into the product or use a small spatula.

Overall, with the intensity of moisture provided and the fact that it does as it says it will do, I can say I recommend this product. It’s easily accessible, inexpensive, and provides all-day hydration so what more could you ask for? I will continue to use this product and I want to know if any of you have used this product or are willing to give it a try! ❤

5/5 for the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream.

Until Next Time,

Julie.

Budget Friendly Shopping Ideas

Hello, my dears!

We have all been there when the budget we have is low, and we are bored but want to shop. I have been there quite a few times and I thought I’d share a few things you could do when your budget doesn’t allow some of the other plans you hoped for.

  1. Thrift Shop. So, some people have reservations about thrifting but I believe it can be one of the most fun and economically friendly past times. There’s plenty of items you can purchase at the thrift store besides clothes. I like to look at the vintage teacups or even the paper supplies. There’s plenty of clothes or items for your home like furniture or decorations. Basically, you can go here and spend less than twenty dollars and go home happy so it’s definitely a budget-friendly option.
  2. Second Hand Book Store. This is similar to the thrift shopping but there are gobs and gobs of books! I love to learn and read but sometimes books can get expensive so I love going to second-hand bookstores and spending a long time looking for something that will keep me entertained for hours.
  3. Dollar Tree. Honestly, the dollar tree is great for anyone who wants to do art projects or decorate their home for the season. You can get anything from candles to mirrors, to decorative ornaments. They have a pretty well-stocked paper supply section and always have tons of stickers! Also, their candy aisle is always a treat!
  4. Tj-Maxx. Tj-Maxx has recently become one of my favorite stores, especially for skin care items. They have a wonderful selection of high-end products which you can pay a fraction of the price for. They also have clothes, home goods, even tea, and snacks!

I thought it would be fun to write this post because I know I am always looking for a deal or to pay less for quality items. If you have any other ideas for budget-friendly shopping leave them in a comment below! ❤
