Blogmas: Day Sixteen
Winter is probably my least favourite mont.- it's rainy, cold, windy and miserably grey. My skin would definitely agree. The cold weather can really take its toll on the skin by drying it out, making it appear dull and just generally feeling run down, so a good pamper is always in order. I’ve put together a few of my favourite skincare products that have helped tackle any dry, dull and damaged skin this winter, and I hope these picks can help if your skin is in need of some TLC too.
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask (£23) - a very rich cream which sinks in so quickly and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth the next day. A little goes a long way so the investment really is worth it in my eyes. Packed full of Avocado Oil and Apricot Kernel Oil, it smells amazing too!
Nuxe Comforting Cleansing Milk (£14) - I often find moisturising cleansers not particularly clarifying or cleansing however, that's not the case for this one. I've repurchased this cleanser so may times as I love it that much. This rose-scented cleanser has a rich, smooth and comfortable texture that perfectly cleanses, removes make-up and protects the skin from dryness with a non-oily finish. Skin is left supple and comfortable.
Kiehl's Avocado Creamy Eye Treatment (£20) - A luxuriously thick and rich eye cream, packed full of Avocado cream and other goodies that our skin loves. Whilst this treatment is highly concentrated and has a thick texture, it is still very light and waters down when tapped in - making it perfect for the delicate under-eye area.
St. Ives Invigorating Scrub (£4.19) - Skin can become so dull and tired in winter so it's crucial that a good exfoliator is at hand. This scrub sloughs away dead skin cells to reveal naturally beautiful and healthy looking skin. The deep cleansing formula gently exfoliates, removing dull, dead skin cells. Skin is left smooth, radiant and healthy.
Origins GinZing Moisturiser (£24) - a gel-like moisturiser that although probably best used in summer for its light texture and fresh feel, provides the radiance and glow skin lacks of in winter. This lightweight, oil-free moisturiser is fortified with skin-boosters like Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean. It instantly hydrates and revs up radiance. Lacklustre-looking skin is rapidly refreshed and revitalised to create a healthy, vibrant glow.
Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins (£35) - a thick, creamy and ultra luxurious overnight cream that smells good enough to eat. The cream is packed full with natural goodness such as vitamins C, E & H, minerals and moisture-rich replenishers. While relaxing aromas lull you to sleep, skin sloughs away dry, dead layers and eradicates the appearance of dullness to wake up looking radiant & refreshed.
