Lalalala blah blah inane post ahead. I just feel like chatting!

First I gotta tell you about a new (to me) product that I simply CANNOT BELIEVE how amazing is it - It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness cream. Got it from Ulta this spring and I’m simply bowled over! Completely covers my redness, like a foundation and concealer all in one, but still leaves my freckles visible and doesn’t look heavy at all. It only comes in this one shade and I can’t figure out how that can possibly work, though. It seems perfect for me (I’m Whitey McIrish von Paleface) but have any of you with different skin tones tried it? How did it work for you?

Okay, on to the thing I need. Any of y’alls have a recommendation for a day cream? I had been a Clinique girl forever, but over the last year or so I haven’t been very happy with how it was working for me. Yay post-menopausal skin changes. I’ve tried a few different things but haven’t settled on anything that I really love yet, so I’m hoping to crowd-source some suggestions. Most recently I’ve been using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel and it’s......okay. But I’m not enamored of it.

I have fairly sensitive AND combination skin (oily t-zone, dryer cheeks) and I want something without SPF. I know, I know. I just hate how it feels. Also, coconut smell is a huge gag-inducing no-no. Any recommendations?
