Mario Badescu Vitamin A & E Hydrating Balm [$25] is on my list (put it in my stocking please! I can always use more) It is the middle of winter and if your skin is anything like mine, you are suffering from dry skin. Not enough moisture in the air, shaving and too little fluid intake makes for itchy irritated and generally unpleasant looking skin. Grrr! What to do? One of my go to secrets for instant moisture and revivification of dry skin is Mario Badescu’s Vitamin A & E Hydrating Balm, which doubles as an aftershave balm as well. Great value and you kill two birds with one stone.
What’s the hype?? This balm is lightweight so it goes on easy and it absorbs into the skin quick and easy. The formulation contains peanut oil which is a natural emollient high in vitamin A in conjunction with cucumber extract to help soothe irritated sensitive skin.
- Great for sensitive skin
- Great for everyday
- Lightweight hydrating balm softens the skin and reduces irritation
- Formulated with Peanut Oil, an emollient high in Vitamin A
- Rose Hips Oil
- Cucumber Extract to help soothe sensitive skin
- For use after shaving, before bed, or under a moisturizer for maximum benefits
My skin has been thanking me – ESPECIALLY because I have been shaving a bit more these days. Irritation is a big offender when it’s cold outside! I went a while without shaving and had a goatee, I started shaving about a month ago. Now that I am clean for the holidays, the redness crops up when I shave. The essential oils and peanut oil make my skin feel soft plus that cucumber has been VERY soothing. Bottom line, this a great all around moisturizer for men to use any time of the year (but it has been especially helpful for me this winter). It works great for shaving, before bed and after you wake up in the morning to help keep your skin healthy and hydrated.
