Is Environ the Best Skin Care Line Ever?

Environ C-Quence Creme

I think I found the perfect moisturizer. For years I have searched for a facial lotion that is moisturizing without being greasy, lightweight without being insubstantial, that included vitamins and antioxidants but that didn’t include any perfumes, that could be worn alone or under makeup, and most importantly made my skin look it’s best.  I found it in Environ’s line of skin care products.

Why?  Because I learned at an early age to take good care of my skin. There was no forgetting to wash my face at night because it always meant a pimple later the next day. I also realized that it wasn’t easy to find good beauty products, so I experimented, and experimented. I wonder how much money I’ve spent over the years on less than stellar skin lotions, potions, and serums. A lot, no doubt. Continue Reading →
