You may have seen (on Instagram) a couple months ago my beloved Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum ran out, and instead of repurchasing, I decided to pick up the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid. A couple factors went into this decision - I had heard ceramides are amazing at relieving dry and dehydrated skin, I'm really into Korean skincare at the moment, and lastly, the bottle holds about five times more product than the Vichy serum and yet only costs $3 more. It was a clear decision in my book.
The Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid comes from their popular Ceramidin range that includes creams, oils, and lip balms. Ceramides are said to aid in the prevention of water loss in the skin, so slathering on a bit of this every day is guaranteed to leave you with hydrated, glowing skin. I use this every day as the serum step in my morning skincare routine. It's similar in thickness to the Vichy serum, though it's not as slippy on the skin. While it's settling into the skin it does feel slightly tacky, but only for a moment. It really feels like it's sinking into my skin to nourish it, while sometimes it felt like the Vichy serum merely sat on top of the skin's surface. Like the Vichy serum, it also has a scent, but it's a light, clean, almost lemon-y scent that hasn't irritated my skin at all.
After using this pretty much every day for almost two months, I've noticed vast improvements in my skin. The red irritation I was getting from the heating drying my skin out has gone away, and I can go through the whole day without my skin feeling uncomfortably tight. It's left me with perpetually glowing skin (without a speck of grease however) and has really helped solve my dullness problem.
When I run out of my daytime moisturizer, I'd love to try the Ceramidin Cream next, since my skin is loving the liquid so much.
Have you tried the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid?
