It is an absolute requirement that I use moisturizer on a daily basis, two times a day because of my eczema and the fact that it flares up the worst when my skin is dry. Because of this, I’m always on the hunt for one that will not only provide me with great moisturizing capabilities, but is fragrance free or has a light scent and soaks into the skin quickly and nicely so my face doesn’t feel like an oil slick. I have tried many and I have my favorites, but recently I have had the opportunity to try out one from Adovia. I have used Adovia products before in the past and while some worked well for me, others I have to use in moderation because of my sensitive skin – but overall, I’ve always been impressed.
The Adovia Day Moisturizing Cream (on sale for $25.95 1.7 fl.oz / 50ml – normally $46.00) is a quick absorbing and non-greasy daytime formula. It is infused with Dead Sea minerals and aloe vera. I actually like using this cream at night since it is thicker and perfect for evening moisturizing. This cream is Hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and offers deep hydration for your skin to bring out its natural radiance. One application provides all-day moisture without clogging pores. Adovia moisturizing cream contains an active complex of Dead Sea minerals for natural moisture balance that is easier for skin to retain and this cream makes an ideal makeup base.

Like I mentioned previously, this is a thick moisturizer and while it worked okay for me during the day – I really rather use it at night. I felt like it was just too heavy for me to use during the day and while I didn’t feel greasy or oily, I felt like I was wearing foundation and it didn’t soak into my skin very quickly. When I used it at night, it soaks into my skin much quicker and I wake up in the morning with my skin feeling very soft and moisturized. This product has a light fragrance, almost like a lotion but it is not easily detected unless you literally smell the product. I love that it has that “almost body butter” texture to it because it smooths on so nicely and luxuriously.
I have been enjoying how easy it is to apply – I simply use circular motions with my finger tips to apply to my face. Also – since I have very sensitive skin, I was a bit leery to try a new moisturizer but have been liking this product overall. If I do use this product in the morning for the day – I always make sure to apply the moisturizer at least 30 minutes to an hour before leaving the house, that way I can really take the time to work the product into my skin and let it sit a bit before I head on out into the humid weather. While it can give me the feeling of foundation on my face when used during the day (as I mentioned previously), if I give it some time to soak in well, it really does offer great moisture through the day. If I am in a rush, I don’t normally pull for this particular product.
Overall I do like this moisturizer and the fact that it keeps my skin hydrated and soft. I would definitely recommend this product, especially since the price is pretty darn affordable.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
