Like a magpie to shiny, if a product claims to control blemishes without drying out my aging skin, I'm all over that. I love natural products that nourish and protect my face, while regulating my oil control and zapping zits. Will I be on Cloud 9 after using this moisturizer?
Cloud 9 Blemish Control Moisturizer fights breakouts, promotes healing of marks, nurtures and balances oily skin, and protects against inflammation and free-radical damage. Developed with dermatologists, it works against the 4 known causes of breakouts: hormonal triggers, bacteria, excess oil and sebum, and vitamin f deficiency.
The ingredient list is full of great plant oils and glycerin to hold moisture in the skin and impart fatty acids, green tea extract for anti-oxidants, and hyaluronic acid, which helps the skin retain moisture and plumps it up, smoothing out fine lines.
I noticed, however, that my skin would become abnormally oily every evening after I started using this moisturizer. I would end up having to wash my face more often, because the oil production was excessive. I did break out - and if you read my review on the Reviva skin products, you could see the angry blemish I developed.
Everyone's skin is a little different, of course, and it may be that the stress of the season has affected my hormones and body chemistry. Also, I know that very rich products do tend to break me out. This may work better for people with drier skin, or more sensitive skin than myself. I may try this as a spot treatment instead of an all-over face moisturizer, as well.
For more information, or to purchase, you can find Cloud9 on their website, and on Amazon, where it currently is on sale for $9.99.
