To Moisturize or Not to Moisturize during the summer. That is the question!! To me there is nothing worse than taking a shower in the summer to cool off and then five minutes later wondering why you even bothered. It’s like humidity.. and don’t even get me started on humidity.
So how to moisturize without that icky sticky feeling? I don’t want to give up my Argan oil but the ones I have are great for winter but a little too heavy for hot summer. I like a light, soft feel to my skin and I definitely don’t want to feel greasy at all. I don’t even like the feel of suntan oil or sunscreen on me. Yuck!!
So imagine my utter delight when Jacadi Paris just reached out to us and sent samples from their Le Bebe Skin Care Collection. Jackie and I fell in love immediately with the light floral fragrances. Yes, Le Bebe was made for a baby but mom’s and nana’s love and approve of it too. I know I’m obsessed when I find myself continuously sniffing my wrist. I don’t normally do that.
The Jacadi Paris Multi-purpose Dry Oil is HypoAllergenic and approved by Pediatricians, which makes us love it even more. This has to be one of the lightest oils containing Argan oil that I’ve ever used. Argan is my go to ever since Susan Anapol of Comptoir Sud Pacifique fame discovered it almost 15 years ago and brought it to the US. Yes, Susan Anapol gets the kudos for introducing the US to Argan oil!! Just another reason to love her!!
I would recommend putting it on slightly damp skin to let the moisture really sink in. Unlike other bath or skin oils this quickly absorbs, leaving very little residue. Put it one way, I would definitely feel quite comfortable putting on my favorite sun dress after and not worrying about any oils picking up on it.
This is definitely a MultiPurpose oil – before I chopped all my hair off a couple of weeks ago I put a little bit on my hair and it really made it soft.
