But unlike actual comfort food (at least in my case), the facial version is actually good for you.
Everyone once in a while, my skin has a proper meltdown. Generally, it has to do with a combo of me not getting enough sleep, eating too much sugar, and PMS. It's the holy trinity of skin nukes.
Individually, those things can cause problems. But together? Batter down the hatches—a storm's a brewing. My skin was both broken out at my chin AND dry. I didn't even know such a thing was really possible. But I have lived it, so I can attest to that truth.
Anyway, it was in this moment that I actually felt some relief because I had the Kat Burki Complete B Bio Correcting Face Cream, which is clearly magic because it soothed my poor frantic skin. I consider it comfort food for the face.
Read on for all of the special things that make this cream so wonderfu. I'm questioning if sorcery is an ingredient, too.

Kat Burki Complete B Bio Correcting Face Cream
How Much It Will Set You Back:
A new fall coat from J. Crew... or $390; spacenk.com

It's a repairing moisturizer, so it's great for more mature skin. But I say if you really want to give your skin a treat, it can be for anyone.

Daily, or whenever your face needs some help. I am tempted to ration it for emergency basis because it's so lovely. I never want to run out.
What It Feels Like:

What the Internet Is Saying:
What the Experts Are Saying:
"I really do not believe there is anything in the market like this—really by the way this formula came about, there couldn’t be. Just like the human body, skin care needs to be multi-dimensional, healing, and protecting at the same time, but also utilizing ingredients in such a way that they actually help one another to maximize outcomes. And in this case, for serious repair," says Kat Burki.
