Reader Recommendations: Holy Grail Products For Dry Skin

Welcome to a new series here at THE GLOSSARRAY: Reader Recommendations. In this series we let you contribute, so let your voice be heard! For the first part of the series we asked you all on Instagram to send in your absolute favorite product along with your skin type and why you love the product. We are only two people, meaning most of our blog posts relate to only our own two skin types. Now you'll be able to hear from those with all sorts of skin types and concerns. Here we compiled a list of the products that were shared with us for dry skin types, maybe this is your introduction to your new HG product! Keep reading to find out :)


Reader: @sanaalovee // Skin type: dry & dehydrated

Recommendation: COSRX Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream

@sanaalovee says: I have dry/dehydrated skin and I absolutely love the COSRX Honey Ceramide Cream! It is so incredibly hydrating, and every time I use it at night (especially with a drop of any facial oil) I wake up with the most radiant, plump skin! Can't be without it! πŸ’›

Reader: @mindedmess // Skin type: dry & acne prone

Recommendation: Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil

@mindedmess says: I love rosehip oil, moisturizes my skin without breakouts and gives me an even skin tone and healthy color. I have dry and acne prone skin + wrinkles are coming for me 😩

Reader: @skinshipworthy // Skin type: dry & sensitive

Recommendation: Mediheal NMF Aquaring Ampoule Mask

@skinshipworthy says: This is by far the best sheet mask, I love the sheet texture. The sheet is thick (soft cotton sheet mask) and has a richer consistency. It's aimed to moisturize, plump and have dewy skin.

Reader: @aesthetic_beautydiary // Skin type: dry, sensitive & acne prone

Recommendation: Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel

@aesthetic_beautydiary says: My fave product is Drunk Elephant B-Hydra. It literally changed the texture and health of my skin in a way nothing else has. I have dry, sensitive skin that's prone to breakouts and hates heavy creams/most oils so it can be tricky to moisturize, especially in the winter. B-Hydra changed all that and I'm never going back. In the winter I mix it with a slightly heavier cream or their Marula Oil, but in summer it's perfect hydration all by itself. Use it AM and PM. πŸ‘Œdrops emoji, happy with hands emoji) It's also super versatile--sometimes I use it to sheer out and add more dew factor to foundation/concealer.

Reader: @ninaonx // Skin type: dry, sensitive & hormonal acne

Recommendation: May Lindstrom The Blue Cocoon Beauty Balm Concentrate

@ninaonx says: I have dry, sensitive, and hormonal acne and this stuff keeps my skin happy. I hardly have breakouts anymore-- even at the time of the month because this stuff is so good. Not just for the skin but for the soul too. Anytime I'm feeling anxious or stressed, I just inhale this jar and instantly feel more at ease. It's a product that I will never live without!

Reader: @hazelpiollo // Skin type: dry to normal

Recommendation: The Ordinary 100% Organic Cold-Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil & Skoah Gold Serum

@hazelpiollo says: I have dry to normal skin, and I don't wear makeup much. So, when I need that extra moisture or glow, rosehip oil with Skoah's Gold Serum gives me a dewy healthy skin look (:
