Winter Skincare Saviours

Winter Skincare Saviours

Ill hold my hands up and say I'm rather lazy when it comes to skincare; i desire lovely, soft skin but i get bored really easy so i require a routine that is very minimal and requires very little effort. Just before Christmas my skin went really dry, it felt so horrible and almost like sandpaper so i decided to give myself a little kick up the bum and sort out my skincare - now, i a kind of have a basic routine that not only am i sticking to but has restore my skin back to its former smoothness.

Winter Skincare Saviours

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
This is hands down one of the best skincare products i have ever used. The hype you constantly hear around it, is 100% worth it. Before this full size came into my life, i had tried two mini samples and it made such a difference to my skin - its one of those products that i can see such a difference in my skin when i don't use it so i was absolutely made up to finally get my hands on the full size for Christmas. I cheat a little bit with this product and i don't use it with a hot cloth cleanser, i just massage it into my face with my hands and it leaves my skin feeling amazing.

The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
I adore this cleansing butter, i tried it last year (or the year before?) but then never got round to repurchasing it until December and i definitely won't be making that mistake again. I use this mostly to remove my make up; the butter melts into the skin and becomes an oil-like consistency, you then massage this into the skin and it gently removes even the most stubborn of make up - it's so easy to use and requires such little effort. It leaves my skin feel so soft and hydrated.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
I'm a big fan of face mask and i love using all different ones but the one I've been using the most recently, especially during my dry skin disaster is this.. It's one of the best face masks i own, it does feel quite bizarre sleeping in a face mask but it absorbs into the skin really nicely, so don't worry about it transferring onto your pillow - i do like to apply this an hour or so before i intend on going sleep though. My skin always feels so hydrated and refreshed when i wash this off the next morning.

The Body Shop Seaweed Pore Cleansing Exfoliator
I like to use a face scrub at least once a week as i can really tell the difference when i don't use one. It's a soap free, gel based cleanser that has little jojoba beads which helps to deep cleanse and remove any dead skin. It's a really nice and gentle exfoliator, it really makes all the difference to my skin - it leaves it feel really soft and smooth.
