Comfort and Joy: Prescriptives Comfort Cream

Prescriptives, Prescriptives Comfort Cream, moisturizer, lotion, moisturize, hydrate, redness, irritation, skin, skincare, skin careI've discovered a fabulous new moisturizer ... and its name is Prescriptives Comfort Cream. Truth be told, this unassuming little jar had been sitting in my must-try pile for quite some time. I eyed it day after day, but for some reason I just never got it together to actually open up the tub! Finally, I bit the bullet -- and wow, am I ever glad I did.

Natural, plant-derived extracts work to reduce the appearance of redness and blotchiness -- perfect especially after a grueling workout at the gym. Algae and kola nut extracts calm and soothe skin, while tumeric root and Vitamins A and E work to diminish redness and irritation. Wheat germ and kukui nut oil hydrate and soften the skin.

This moisturizer somehow is thick, rich and lush without feeling the slightest bit heavy. It sinks into skin immediately upon contact with absolutely no greasy residue, so whether I use it during the day or before bed there's no unsightly sheen left upon my visage. I tend to use it more before bed, as it really helps to repair my skin from the harshness and damage of the day -- though there is actually a nighttime version available as well. Plus, I love that the creamy formula smells lovely and pleasant -- so I don't feel wary slathering my face in it day after day.

Best of all, my skin has been glowing ever since I started using it. I've suffered absolutely no irritation or breakouts as a result of trying something new -- the last few weeks have seen nothing but clear, gorgeous results (if I do say so myself!).

Prescriptives Comfort Cream retails for $39.50.
