In the past I’ve mentioned having oily / combination skin and my struggles with keeping that at bay. Recently, I’ve noticed my skin feeling dryer than normal, which I can more than likely attribute to the change in temperature. As the weather changes so do our skin’s needs and mine was crying out for some nourishment. Fortunately, as I was on the hunt for a new daily moisturizer, I was coincidentally contacted by chic black-owned beauty brand Base Butter to give their Radiate Face Jelly a try.
Base Butter houses all-natural handmade products meant to not only nourish but rejuvenate your skin. The Radiate Face Jelly ($28) is a lightweight moisturizer made of products such as aloe vera gel, evening primrose, lavender and tea tree. All of which work together to balance the skins pH, boost elasticity and even the skin tone.
Given that the formula is super lightweight, I knew Base Butter’s face jelly would be perfect for daily use under my makeup, however, I was a bit worried it wouldn’t provide the extra moisture I needed given how the cold weather has been affecting my skin. Fortunately, a little of this product goes a long way. Paying special attention to my main problem areas (the outside corners of the mouth and around my nostrils), once applied I felt the boosting properties almost immediately, and the moisture truly lasted all day long.
What I also love about this product is that throughout the day, my skin doesn’t produce unnecessary oil. You know how it is, your face is refreshed and hydrated in the morning, but towards the evening you’re starting to look like a greaseball. The Base Butter Face Jelly is great at balancing my skin and keeps it level hours after it is applied. Not to mention, it smells so good—the fragrance is therapeutic in itself.
