It’s that time of year when normally my skin goes from dry to ultra dry, my lips crack and I give up with doing my makeup altogether. Well that's all about to change! I’ve been on the search for my perfect moisturiser and products that genuinely work for me and agree with my skin. SO i’m sharing with you my winter holy grail items that will save me in these cold winter days and i hope help you too!
Clarins HydraQuench Cream
Now this one had to be first! I can tell you i’ve tried SOOOOO many products and been on the moisturiser hunt for years. If I found one that suited me, it’d move and make my foundation look dodgy. If I found one that clung well to my makeup it’d make my skin break out! I thought i’d forever be trialing products and never find something perfect. Untill... (drum rolls please), Clarins. Oh my dayssss! I walked up to the Clarins counter on a whim at the beginning of this year and the beautician gave me one sample of the hydraquench moisturiser and said not to try anything else. She clearly knew what she was doing cause i’m now on my third pot and my quest for hydrated skin was complete. I’m stopping here, i’ve said enough (but could say so much more), go give it a go if you're like me and I promise you wont be dissapointed!
L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
Now this is a handbag necessity! If you don’t have a hand cream in your bag, especially at this time of year then start...today! I’ll admit it, in the summer if i swap bags and forget to put a cream in, it's not the end of the world. Now the season has changed it is something that is on me at all times. The wind, heaters and day to day tasks can dry out my hands so much but, a hand cream (with a good smell), is always such a refreshing and genuinely nice feeling!
Dior Addict Lip Maximiser
This Dior lip...ahhhhhh, so good. Right, you need to ignore the lip maximiser part, it does nothing for me in that aspect, it may work for you and if it does let me know as i’ll be very jealous! I bought this 2 years ago in boots, and yes I was actually looking for a lip plumper after trying lots and being unsuccessful. But in this i found a gem. In my search for plump luscious lips I found my lip saviour. I put this on before I jump into bed and my lips when i wake up feel brand new!
Estée Lauder New Advanced Night Repair
Now this is something new to me, and still in sample size but i can already tell it’s something i’m going to be purchasing. It's a night oil, which again I was recommended for my dry skin and what a difference this makes! I wake up with plump skin! Plump! Normally i’m dry and crusty, ew i know. Absolute savour oil and i’m so happy to have it in my life.
Share with me what you use, I love finding new gems and let me know if you’ve tried any of the above!
