This Charming Face

I am a little bit hesitant to recommend beauty products here, because everyone is different.  But I thought it might be good to go ahead and mention this - for what it's worth.

I think that moisturizers are hard.  I have combination skin that tends toward the dry side (especially in the winter) and it's also super sensitive.  And once you hit 40 everything changes and all bets are off. 

When I went looking for a new night time moisturizer, I had already run through every over the counter thing out there -without success - but I still didn't want to pay an arm and a leg. 

I found the Silkcoat Balm by PCA Skin while comparing moisturizers on SkinCare RX and since this had a pretty low price point (by comparison) and good reviews,  I gave it a try. 

This stuff goes on thick and then sinks in  - but not completely.  It leaves sort of a film on your face but not in a gross way.  It's not greasy or sticky.

It doesn't smell bad, cause my eyes to swell shut, clog my pores or stain my pillow cases.  And it hydrates my skin wonderfully.  One jar lasted about 3 months and I found it especially nice after my facials or on particularly frigid days when I thought my skin needed a little more.

I have been really thrilled with it and I think its really worth the $36.  Before I started using this, my facialist (Hi! LA) told me my skin was dry when I showed up to have her work her magic.   But she's been much more pleased with it lately.

You may want to check it out if you think you need a heavier moisturizer at night.


  1. I adore the Silkcoat Balm from PCA! I had a peel once, and they gave me a few products from the PCA line to use for the next two weeks. I fell in love :) Excellent recommendation!

  2. Cool! LA gives me peels from time to time and this feels wonderful afterward when my skin seems thirsty.
