“If my hair routine is best described as wash and go, then my skin-care regimen is the exact opposite. It’s more like wash, apply leave-on the exfoliating liquid, wait five minutes, apply vitamin C serum, wait two minutes, apply oil, wait five minutes, apply sunscreen, wait for however long it takes to sink in before I can put on makeup, then go, 15 minutes later than I should have — and that’s just in the mornings. But ever since I started using this nutrient-packed moisturizer, not only have I shaved about 20 minutes off my routine, but my skin has looked clearer and felt smoother than it has in years. I’ve never really been a ‘less is more’ kind of person, but this might just be as close as I’ll ever get.” – Rachel Krause, beauty writer
