I still remember my first moisturizer. My mum had given it to me, probably because I asked, and not because she thought that I needed/wanted to moisturize my pre-pubescent face. It came in a pale peach coloured jar and inside it contained moisturizer the same colour. I loved it so much that I used it for 15 years until I realized there was hardly anything natural about it and was made with synthetic this and synthetic that. Then was the end of that relationship.

I've since become very cognizant of what's in my skincare and prefer brands with natural ingredients. Makes sense right?  

Recently I headed out to Newmarket to hang out with the ladies of Lise Watier at The Bay for their HydraForce event. We hung out, did our Snapchat thing and got around to learning more their latest product. 

The entire HydraForce line contains Gaspé Algae Extract, which is derived from seaweed found in the cold north­eastern part of the Atlantic coast, Fogo Island, NL. If you're not impressed yet, you will be because Gaspé Algae reinforces the skin's protective barrier and locks moisture in by preventing water loss - perfect when faced with winter's extreme temps. Hopefully Toronto will be leaving winter behind after this week's freak weather and heading back to spring, but that's not excuse to let up on that moisture.

I'm really digging this line so two thumbs up from me. Now I just need to get my hands on their BB tinted veil which looks perfect for day time makeup. ;) 

Thanks for reading and don't forget to moisturize!
