Winter Skin Care Staples


The festive period has finished but winter certainly isn’t over. At least not in the UK, temperatures are dropping down rapidly and between that and central heating our skin can suffer.

That’s why I wanted to share with you my winter skin staples. All of these products are well loved and have been repurchased time and time again.

In the past year I have fallen deeply in love with face oils. I have oily to combination skin and I have diched moisturises for face oils. I feel like my skin is more nourished and doesn’t tend to get as oily during the day. Also it doesn’t make me brake out, foundation applies more smoothly and it creates a nice healthy glow. What more could you want right?

I use Nude Progenius Omega Treatment rescue oil every single morning. I apply a small drop and smooth it all over my face. It leaves your skin looking and feeling great.

As mentioned in my Evening Skin Care Must Haves post, the Kiehl´s midnight recovery range is sheer perfection! The Midnight recovery concentrate oil is wonderful, it feels lovely on the skin, it sinks in quickly and the next morning you wake up with baby smooth skin. The Midnight recovery eye cream is incredibly nourishing and gentle on delicate skin. It’s the perfect eye cream for the evening.

Also worth mentioning is my trusty Nuxe lip balm. It’s the best lip balm to slather on at night time, it is really nourishing and thick leaving your lips baby smooth by morning.

As skin tends to get a bit dryer this time of year its also very important to exfoliate. I don’t use physical exfoliators as skin care experts have said that they actually damage the skin surface. I have recently discovered Rodial Super Acids x-treme rush peel. It contains active azeliac acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid and fruit acids. It removes dead skin revealing a new layer of skin therefore making your skin feel smoother and looking glowier.

I also love a good face mask all year round, I have been using the GlamGlow SuperMud a lot lately. It’s a deeply cleansing mask designed to deep clean your pores. It might not be to adequate for sensitive skin, but its great for normal to combination skin.

My all time favourite body cream is by far the Rituals Sakura magic touch body cream.
I have been using it religiously for more than a year now. I don’t purchase any other body cream. I love how soft it makes my skin feel and how rapidly it sinks into my skin. But I would have to say that the reason why I can´t live without it is the scent. I just absolutely love it. So much so that I think I own or have owned pretty much everything from the Sakura range. I´m obsessed!

Lastly, a part of our body that tends to suffer a lot during winter but that sometimes gets forgotten is our hands. Its really important to have a good hand cream. I love this one from Rituals. I absolutely love the smell of it and love how soft my hands feel after using it. This hand balm is targeted for dry to extra dry skin. The skin on my hands is quite normal so I tend to use it at night before I go to bed. If you struggle finding a good nourishing hand cream, I would definitely give this one a go.




Let me know what skin care products you can’t live without during the colder months.

  4. I am a big fan of the Nuxe lip balm and any chemical exfoliant as well as face oils. The GlamGlow mud was something I did not like at all.

  12. I'm wanting to try both the Kiehls midnight oil and eye cream after reading this review. I've tried the avocado under eye cream but feel I need something a little stronger for fine lines!

  15. I was interested to read that you have ditched moisturisers and replaced them with facial oils. It sounds like you have a similar skin type to me and I have been rethinking my entire skincare regime as it just hasn't been working for me. I might give this a try too as it sounds like it has worked really well for you :) x

    1. I just felt like moisturisers were either too thick or didn't really work well under makeup. Even though it sounds a bit strange to use a face oil when having oily to combination skin it actually works better. Its lighter than most moisturisers and makes foundation apply so much better. x

  16. My skincare is so bad I am kinda envy! Oil in the morning? This sounds so interesting!

For now, I don't have a serious routine cause this is my first winter, i'm though working on the project to build up my skin care routune for winter. But i'm intersted on the NUXE lip balm, sounds pretty cool. Thanks for sharing this post.

  19. Really great products! I almost bought that eye cream from Kiehl's but the woman serving me convinced me to get the avocado eye cream instead! I'll definitely be trying that one once my current eye cream runs out 😊

  21. I have oily skin and I am obsessed with skin oils. I agree my makeup just glides on when I use them. Where I live it tends to get really cold in winter with temps and windchill dropping into the negatives so I sometimes have to use a cream mixed with oil for a little more protection.
