In the summer heat, I find myself avoiding heavy moisturizers, even though I know that I need them. I know that with the increased sun exposure, it’s more important now to keep my skin hydrated, but slathering on a moisturizer on a humid day just bums me out.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum, and it has changed my life. Okay, it’s changed my opinion on moisturizing in 100% humidity.
This gel serum goes on light and it’s not sticky in the least. You can layer it under other moisturizers if you’re not opposed to more moisture on your face. You don’t need a great deal of this, a little goes a long way, so this little bottle is going to last a long time.
Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum is available at Nordstrom for $30.
