Winter Skincare Essentials


skincare-dry-dehydrated-skin-origins-pixi-glow-tonic-the-body-shop-kiehls, white company, winter, candleSkincare is something I adore as much as my makeup collection yet I’ve not spoke so much about it on the blog. However with Winter making a strong appearance lately, I thought it was appropriate to share some of the products I’ve been relying on recently to help give my skin the moisture and hydration much needed in the cold weather!

MoisturiserOrigins GinZing and Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins

Moisturiser is obviously a must have at this time of year! However there is a few that have been particularly floating my boat recently! Both from Origins who fyi have amazing moisturisers, for day time, I have been loving their GinZing option as it is incredibly hydrating. Appropriately names ‘Energy boosting’, it essential is a boost of life with its coffee bean formulation. For night, I have been loving their night cream which is again refreshing on the skin without being too heavy.

TonerPixi Glow Tonic

To help ex-foliate my skin to get rid of any dry patches and to also help brighten my skin, I love this cult Pixi product. It is feels refreshing on the skin whilst doing its job of clearing and evening out of the skin.

Eye Cream Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream 

My under eyes can get pretty dry and to combat it, I love this Kiehl’s eye cream. It is incredibly rich and creamy and offers an amazing boost of hydration for under the eyes. I couldn’t be without this, great for those who have dryness!

Facial Mist – The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist

With the heating on full blast, my skin can feel super parched and I just need something to quickly refresh my skin. That is where a good facial mist can come into play! There is so many available on the market but one of my favourites is this budget friendly option from the Body Shop which gives my skin a quick re-boost and spray of hydration!

Lip Balm/OilClarins Lip Oil 

Lip Balm/oil is such a must at this time of year as I always seem to ger dry lips in the Winter time. I am obsessed with the Clarins Lip Oils as they are super hydrating on the lips without being overly sticky!

Skincare Wishlist

It’s not been long since my last wishlist post but here I am again with another one. This time around though we are talking all about skincare. This time last year I really had a next to nothing interest in skincare. I always felt so overwhelmed with the many serums, oils and creams out there that all claimed to be the bee’s knees. I never ever imagined I would be the person splurging on a daily moisturiser but I thought the same about makeup and look how that turned out… So of course I have now went down the same route with skincare lusting after high end brands and fancy face masks cause why not! I am still trying to nail down a good skincare routine so for the moment I am testing things out trying to find the perfect products for my skin and I have some products that I would still really like to try out.

Kiehl’s is a brand I’ve heard so much about but never personally have I ventured into as of yet. As you can see there are quite a few products from their range that I would love to get my hands on. The first being an eye cream. Being a young un’ I’ve never really seen the need in eye cream but the under eye area is so delicate and mine could do with a little more moisture. Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment has had a lot of loving out there and I would love to try it out myself. The addition of avocado oil sounds super nourishing and a real treat for my under eyes.

Also from Kiehl’s is their Midnight Recovery Oil. I am a huge lover of oils and this is one I’ve been desperate to try for ages. It sounds perfect for injecting a bit of radiance into your skin but also to help clear your skin which is something I could do with. Also as I am looking for a new moisturiser I have heard a lot of good things about the Kiehl’s range. Their Ultra Facial Cream sounds pretty darn good. It’s a small tub at 50ml but I imagine a little would go a long way. I am definitely going to get my hands on this one!

Moving on from Kiehl’s, there is a cult fave amongst my list. Of course it is the Pixi Glow Tonic which everyone and their mum seems to rave about. I’ve been really getting into the First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads and this Glow Tonic is meant to be pretty similar. Whilst delivering a bucket of radiance to the skin, it is also said to be good for dealing with breakouts and blemished skin. Basically right up my street and if Caroline Hirons approves then it must be a good un’.

Obviously I couldn’t do this wishlist without mentioning a good face mask. The Australian brand Aesop has such a good range of products in the most beautiful minimalist packaging. Whilst I own their hand cream I would love to try more from the brand. Their Parsley Seed Mask again is very popular in the beauty world (is there a trend here..) and sounds like the perfect face mask for me. This mask is meant to be pretty good for clearing your pores and dealing with blemishes. I still haven’t found a good mask or treatment in my routine to help clear blemishes and who knows this could be the one?

Lastly, is a cleanser from Oskia. Oskia have also had a lot of loving lately and they are a brand I’ve been so desperate to try out particularly their Renaissance Cleansing Gel. All their products sound super luxurious and sometimes we need a little luxury for our face, right? I love oil based cleansers and when applied to the skin this Oskia gel forms into an oil. This may be one for the SpaceNK points!
