The New ILIA Base Face Milk Is the Step My Winter Skin Routine Was Missing featured image

Temperatures may have plunged all over the country this week, but for the first time my skin doesn’t feel dry, tight and itchy like it normally does this time of year. What’s changed? I added ILIA’s new Base Face Milk ($58) to my morning and evening skin-care routine.

The Base Face Milk is a milky essence and moisturizer hybrid product that hydrates, reduces redness, smooths texture and strengthens the skin barrier. Continuing ILIA’s skin care-first approach to beauty, Base Face Milk’s ingredient list reads like a who’s who of nourishing and soothing properties. First up is hyaluronic acid with its unmatched prowess in long-lasting hydration. Next is ILIA’s barrier renewal complex, a blend of lipids and fatty acids that replenishes skin’s protective barrier. “Skin superfood” microalgae extract revitalizes skin while “plant-based powerhouse” prickly pear flower extract supports skins natural renewal process.

Base Face Milk can be used alone as lightweight moisturizer, but this winter I added it to my existing skin-care routine—after cleansing and serums, before a heavier moisturizer—morning and evening. I noticed a difference in how my skin feels and looks from day one. I wake up with a plumper, more glowy complexion and my face no longer feels tight and uncomfortable by mid-day.

It’s a great makeup prep product, too. I like to apply a little bit more before wearing foundation or cream blush—both glide on seamlessly with Base Face Milk underneath it.

I’ll be interested to see if how the Base Face Milk fits into my routine as the weather gets warmer, but for now, it is hands down the step my skin-care routine was missing this winter. Get ILIA’s skin-enhancing the Base Face Milk here.
