New Holy Grail Moisturizer from Peter Thomas Roth

I hope everyone is staying warm and getting through the winter months.  If you’ve checked out my winter skincare post, then you know the products that I love and need to keep my skin from drying out!  Recently, I changed up my moisturizer and all I can say is WOW!  I don’t think my face has ever been so moisturized at this time of year!  Let me introduce you to Peter Thomas Roth’s Water Drench! This moisturizer is like magic in a jar!

Peter Thomas Roth moisturizer
My new holy grail moisturizer for winter!

This product retails for $52 (I found it on Amazon (affiliate link) for $48 here) and contains 1.6 fl. oz.  It boasts having 30% hyaluronic acid which draws “atmospheric vapor” to keep your skin moisturized for 72 hours.  That’s a pretty lofty claim!  The texture of this moisturizer is light and slippery – it almost feels like a primer going on the skin.  It is not heavy, greasy or sticky.  I do find that it absorbs quickly and my sunscreen goes on top with no issues.  I don’t know if the 72 hour claim is accurate as I don’t keep it on that long, but I do know that my skin is showing no signs of dryness or flaking and feels very plump and hydrated all day, even on the coldest days!  That is a first for me!  I’ve used some great moisturizers in the past, but none could seem to keep my skin from flaking on those really cold, blistery days.  This moisturizer is one I use confidently, with my usual Retin-A routine (you can read more about that here) and that is what makes me most excited about this product!

Don’t get me wrong, I am counting down the days to warmer weather, but in the meantime, I’ve found a fantastic moisturizer that has my skin looking like it’s already spring!  What holy grail products are part of your winter skincare routine?
