So far, old man winter hasn’t been too bad yet in New England. I say “yet” because our winter from hell last year didn’t start until the end of January. So I definitely don’t think we’ll escape from the cold and snow this year either.
But I am ready. A couple of months ago, I received two incredible facial moisturizers from Mineral Fusion. I wasn’t familiar with Mineral Fusion, and there seem to me to be some brands with similar names, i.e. some with Fusion in the name, others with Mineral in the name. I get confused. But now that I’ve tried Mineral Fusion, I won’t get confused. Plus I love their tagline: Minerals On A Mission. So cute!
Mineral Fusion Skin-Balancing Moisturizer
I’ve been using Skin-Balancing Moisturizer since it arrived. The moisturizer seems to me to be a gel cream. It’s what I would describe as light to medium weight. It has a very faint fresh scent that is imperceptible on my skin. The moisturizer is so easy to apply. I use a small blob and that covers my entire face. It sinks in instantly, and it is totally greaseless. It’s very hydrating even for my very dry skin. IMHO, it would work well for all skin types.
Lightweight rose hip oil, mineral water, natural antioxidants, the wrinkle-fighter iron, and Mineral Fusion’s collagen-boosting peptide are key to Skin-Balancing Moisturizer’s many benefits.
Skin-Balancing Moisturizer is a perfect moisturizer to wear under makeup.

Mineral Fusion Intense Hydration Face Cream with Hyaluronic Acid
I’ve been saving “the big guns” for the real cold, dry winter weather. However, I can’t resist using the Intense Hydration Face Cream from time to time when my skin feels extra dry or if I’m staying somewhere where there is no humidifier in the heating system. It’s very similar to the Skin-Balancing Moisturizer – a gel cream, faint fresh scent, needs only about a dime to a quarter’s worth, covers easily. But it takes just a few seconds more to sink in. While it too is greaseless, it leaves my skin feeling protected with a very thin veil. I love it. Since the frigid temperature from Canada and the midwest is heading our way, maybe now is the time to make the switch to the Intense Hydration Face Cream.
Like the Skin-Balancing Moisturizer, Intense Hydration Face Cream is made with rose hip oil, mineral water, natural antioxidants, the wrinkle-fighter iron, and Mineral Fusion’s collagen-boosting peptide. Intense Hydration Face Cream also contains shea butter which accounts for its richer formula and hyaluronic acid for helping to keep my skin feeling plumper and better hydrated. It has calming botanicals – Aloe, Lavender, and Cucumber – that soothe the skin and give it a healthy glow.
Because the Intense Hydration Face Cream really sinks in, this somewhat heavier moisturizer still works well under makeup.
