When you’re traveling, you want — and need — your beauty products to be able to do double, triple, even quadruple duty. After all, that 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag has to be able to zip. Phytomer’s 12 Hour Hydracontinue Moisturizing Flash Gel is like a baseball team’s utility player. I was happy to be hosted to experience it!
This cooling, soothing, sea-water colored gel from the French luxury skincare company is applied with a pump dropper and then, you can use it to:
- be a moisturizer on its own
- layer under moisturizer
- mix with foundation or cream cosmetics
I think it’s genius for making your own “BB Cream”. I have a very expensive foundation that you can only get at about 2 places in the US. It’s perfect for photos, making one look like a porcelain doll. However, many times I’m not in the mood to apply something so carefully, stippling with a sponge or brush. A drop or two of the Hydracontinue Flash Gel, and I can then slap on some sheer, moisturizing coverage.
