InternDIVA: Paula’s Choice Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturizer

Walking to class in negative 10 degree wind chill, it’s almost inevitable that I’ll accumulate some sort of windburn or dry patches all over my skin. Regardless of the preparation and layers I put together to face the painfully cold conditions, I still manage to develop uncomfortably chapped skin. Aside from the discomfort that comes with extremely dry skin, I can’t help but cringe when looking in the mirror and feeling like an oversized piece of dried fruit (I mean c’mon… how SEXY is that?…). However, thanks to Paula’s Choice Clinical Ultra-Rich Moisturizer, I’ve been able to take control of my excessively dry skin this season.

Paula’s Choice was founded in 1995 by internationally renowned beauty and skin care expert, Paula Begoun. Using her knowledge and expertise, Paula has developed her own line based on reliable, published skin-care research. Not only all are of Paula’s products fragrance free, but cruelty-free, environmentally-friendly and are highly effectivePaula’s Choice products perform beautifully without false promises (yes, yes & yes).

This new clinically-proven moisturizer helps to treat extremely dry and sensitive skin – including those who are eczema-prone. Skin repairing ingredients, including emollients, anti-irritants and plant oils, help to eliminate irritation and redness, repair and strengthen your skin’s vital barrier function, and help to prevent moisture loss for 12 hours. Being the Queen of skin ailments, this moisturizer seemed to be right up my alley.

After cleansing/exfoliating in the shower, I applied the moisturizer around my chin, cheeks and under my eyes. The consistency was just the right amount of thick and creamy — it was easy to apply, but was thick enough for me to feel the Coconut Oil & Shea Butter formula was going to work. While this product was thick, it was far from heavy and made my face feel rejuvenated. 

For anyone experiencing the discomfort of chapped, dry skin this winter, I higgggghly, highly recommend this product! The 100% fragrance and colorant-free formula allows your face to breathe (which I love), while the rich texture coddles and soothes your skin. My results were almost immediate. My skin no longer looks or feels…

Something I have mentioned in the past and still stand by is the concept of being comfortable in the skin you’re in. There is nothing worse than feeling discouraged or embarrassed due to a skin ailment. While I believe imperfections are apart of who we are, I’m ALL for products that allow individuals to take control of such ailments — everyone deserves to feel confident and fearless!

From the wise words of none other than Queen B, a DIVA is the female version of a hustla’.
