Is anyone else just waiting for January to end so we can start to countdown to Spring and the hope that brighter mornings, light nights and we’ll no longer need our big coat every time we leave the house?
The miserable weather and wind and rain that doesn’t seem to letting up and my skin isn’t thanking me for it. However, the poor weather means I’m investing heavily in my skincare routine, which let’s face it, is nothing new for me.
Whenever I receive an email asking if I’d like to try a new product, I get extremely excited cos I adore skincare and discovering new products that add some much needed moisture back into my skin. So, I thought I’d share my winter edit of products that I’m currently loving…
This is a hero product if I ever saw one! Designed to be used on rough or tough patches of skin, it’s been a godsend over the past few weeks. It smells very minty, quite like Vicks and I’ve been using it on my nose, similarly to Vicks, and on my elbows, knees and ankles after showering.
Your Good Skin is a new brand at Boots, which I’ve been trying out since November. The product range is quite vast with a variety of products, designed for all skin types. However this little pot of heaven is just dreamy. I apply to my cheeks, which are majorly drying out in the current weather after I’ve removed my make up and it’s really doing the trick.
I hadn’t heard of Phytomer before, but from reading up on the brand they’ve been going for 40 years and aim to use natural, high performance ingredients. I’m not sure if the brand is cruelty free or not, its purpose is to hyrdate and prep the skin for applying make up. I’ve been using it in the morning as a primer and my foundation definitely glides across the skin easier than before. I’m excited to see how it continues to perform over the coming weeks and basically until I’ve used the bottle up!
