Welcome to another Monthly Favourites! The standout for me this month is The Ordinary. I dare say it is fitting that this Canadian company, which has taken the skincare industry by storm, should be my sole favourite for this particular month which leads into a celebration of Canada's 150th birthday. Woohoo! 150 years young! Happy Birthday Canada!
Natural Moisturizing Factors Moisturizer appeared in May's Monthly Favourites which you can read about here. I have also written about the Vitamin C Suspension here. I am still using the Vitamin C as it is good for combating hyperpigmentation caused by long sunny days. I have cut back on the Moisturizer as I find I don't need as much moisturizer in the summer and added in something new, the Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, instead. Hyaluronic Acid is excellent for hydration as it can hold 1000% its weight in water. There is a little glass pipette that administers drops of the acid. I just sweep it over my face in the morning before applying makeup and it is enough hydration for me. There is a slightly tacky feel to it which some may not like and it doesn't provide a lot of slip if you are one of those who like to throw in a bit of facial massage at the same time as you are moisturizing your face. However, as a simple serum, it is perfectly adequate.That is it for June!
