Is your skin already feeling dry and tight? Mine is! The air is drier in Kansas City and I am having to use extra-moisturizing products to keep the skin on my face and body looking and feeling soft.
Below are some of my new favorites:

What I think: My skin has been dry lately, even though it usually isn’t. So I have been wanting moisturizers that give more intensive hydration. This not only makes my skin smooth and soft, it is created with natural ingredients, so it is good
