Why we love it: This is the cream that made us fall in love with Lawless! Not only is the cream a pretty light shade of pink, but texture is buttery smooth and sinks delightfully into the skin. And since this moisturizer was developed to act as a base before your makeup steps, we can see a huge difference to our skin when applying makeup post moisturizer versus without. This baby works on all skin types and leaves skin looking plump, youthful, and more radiant. It’s a must buy!
