Screw the DJ… Last Night a Decleor Balm Saved My Life!

If you’re living anywhere that is experiencing harsh winter-like conditions (and by harsh I mean the barometer dips below 50 degrees) then chances are you’re getting blasted by dry heat in your house or apartment.  There’s a reason why all the skincare experts tell you to up the moisturizer ante during the winter — it isn’t just the cold dry air outside, it’s the scorching desert inside which makes you wake up to crispy uncomfortable skin. Good Morning.  Not really.  The worst is when I wake up to crispy skin that at closer inspection are hiding blackheads! The crispy dry skin traps in the oil making it a safe haven for blackheads and other interlopers to form, making my skin ever more of a moody drama queen.  So how do I cure my case of the crispy oily uglies?
Decleor ‘Aroma Night’ Neroli Essential Night Balm ($73) is seriously this miracle balm that before bed whether my skin is feeling dehydrated, oily, on the verge of a breakout, or all the above — I wake up to softened, balanced skin.  I’m sorry, but that’s a miracle if I’ve ever heard one.  The balm is literally the consistency of a lip balm so be prepared you’ll need to scoop out a little chunk and then emulsify it by rubbing it and melting it your hands before slathering on the goodness.  Even though Neroli is in the title don’t be fooled — it definitely doesn’t smell of citrus, rather a warm, delicious herbal scent.  I like to take the time to really massage it into my skin and inhale the bouquet of notes and, “ahhhhh” I am ready for slumber.  And then I wake up like Christmas morning to softened, balanced skin! Voila!

    They have a gorgeous line that smells delicious. I’m a huge fan!!! They have a creamy milk cleanser I love you can use dry and tissue off which is perfect for sensitive skin in the winter.
