Skincare Sunday IX: Pai Geranium & Thistle Combination Skin Cream

My love affair for Pai Skincare products started almost two years ago when I ordered the Camellia & Rose cleanser (planning on repurchasing that baby for winter) and I have enjoyed various offerings from the brand since. I like the packaging, the brand concept (organic skincare for sensitive skin) and the clear and simple way they showcase their ingredients.

I've been giving their Geranium & Thistle moisturizer a whirl over the past couple of months and I love it! 

Combination/oily skin can girls rejoice - this is a moisturizer that effectively hydrates the skin and helps balance it out while at the same time leaving a matte canvas behind, making it work well as a primer under makeup as well. It has a slightly sweet yet clean herbal scent and it blends into the skin with ease. It has a slightly thicker consistency than your average lotion and I love the sturdy 1 oz glass bottle with pump that it comes in. It doesn't have a lid but the pump has a twist/lock mechanism that hasn't made a mess in my makeup bag during travel.

You can purchase Pai Skincare products at or at Beauty Bay (free worldwide shipping!)

I have used both and while the Pai website has faster shipping, Beauty Bay has sales :)

What's your go-to daytime moisturizer?
