When skin is completely dry, moisturizer isn’t absorbed as effectively. Damp skin helps to trap water in your surface cells, helps give skin a nice “dewy” look and helps prevent evaporation (meaning your moisturizer’s benefits will last longer).
It’s really that easy…just give your skin a quick splash of water before moisturizer application. A hydrating toning mist can also do the trick. Just remember, the key is “damp” skin (not completely wet).

I've recently made a promise to myself to simplify not only the products I use, but the ingredients that go in them. This is why I love the Cocoa Skin Cream.
If you're like me and love the new Deodorant Stick, you've probably been wondering what's up with the paper packaging. While Meow Meow Tweet is known for their effective, vegan deodorants in adorable glass jars, this new stick is made with a sturdy paper that's actually biodegradable. It offers the convenience of a deodorant stick without the wasteful plastic packaging.
