I often find it rather hard to find a good moisturiser that will work for my combination skin; I need a moisturiser that isn’t too thick as to smother the oilier parts of my skin, but I need something hydrating enough for the drier parts of my skin.
This is where the wonder that is Stubborn Cosmetics comes in created by the fantastic Annalisa of @Skinperspective on Instagram. They have created such an innovative product, something I’ve never seen before. Stubborn Cosmetics will create you your own customised moisturiser suited to your skin, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
What it is?
A custom made moisturiser based on several questions asked during a quiz to determine what you need. For me, the moisturiser came with two pumps, one for the dry areas of my face and one for the oily parts of my face. Often customised anything will cost you an arm and a leg but this is affordable coming in at $40 or around £30-£31.
What does it do?
Not only is this a moisturiser, but it also focuses on addressing some skin issues that you might be having. Stubborn Cosmetics describes its product as a hybrid between a moisturiser and a serum. Depending on the answers you give during the skin quiz, they can help with things like breakouts, blackheads, whiteheads, sagging, wrinkles, fine lines, impaired skin barrier, hyper-pigmentation, irritation and dehydration.
How do you use it?
I use one pump for the oily parts of my face and half a pump for the dry parts of my face as the last part of my night time routine. You could use this both AM/PM but im currently testing something else out otherwise i would use this AM/PM.
Whats in it?
Green Pump (Oily Skin)
White Pump (Dry Skin)
I have been using this moisturiser for a good couple of months now, and I can honestly say that the stubborn cosmetics moisturiser is the one I always go for because it’s customised to what I need, I’m not using a moisturiser hoping that it’s going to work and be compatible for my skin.
If you are interested in trying out this innovative moisturiser you can find it at stubborncosmetics.com for $40* (£30-£31)
