I ran out of my usual night-time moisturizer a few months ago and decided to try something new. I sometimes wonder why I switch my skin care routine up when it seems to be working fine and isn’t breaking me out, but I think I’m always on the hunt for something that will make my skin look and feel even better (do you do that too?). Anyway, I was looking for an oil free, lightweight moisturizer to use at night and came across Philosophy Take a Deep Breath. It is oil free (check) and lightweight (check). An added bonus it that it wasn’t horribly overpriced ($35.00 for 2 oz, but it doesn’t take much so I can see this lasting awhile). According to Philosophy’s website they say :
“helps diffuse energizing oxygen for glowing skin
blend of antioxidants helps protect skin against environmental attack
provides oil-free, lightweight hydration”
After reading a lot of reviews that were all positive I decided to give it a try. I’m very happy that I did because I really love it. It’s has a very lightweight, whipped texture that feels really nice on my skin and it’s oil free (which my oily skin appreciates). It sinks into my skin right away and doesn’t make my skin feel oily or shiny. I have been using this nightly for about 2 months now and it hasn’t caused my skin to break out and isn’t full of fragrance.
I bought this to use at night, but have noticed I’ve been reaching for it in the morning too. There is no SPF in this moisturizer, but I did notice their website has a version with SPF 30 that comes in a squeezable tube. I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s definitely something I can see myself purchasing in the future. Have you tried this moisturizer? If so I’d love to know what you think of it.
Have a great day!
