Winter Skincare Edit

winter skincare routine

Now that we are officially in winter and we have already had a couple of snow days in the UK, I thought it was about time to switch up my skincare to match the new season. I have oily combination skin but I have found my skin quite dry lately due to the contrast between the outside cold and then the warmth indoors.

Aurelia cell repair night oil

I have upped my hydration game by introducing the Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil into my skincare. I always use face oils in my skincare routine but I found this one to be more nourishing than the previous one I was using, it also sinks in quite quickly. The rose and mandarin oil help protect and hydrate the skin leaving a glowy complexion by morning whilst the neroli and lavender oil allow you to relax and de-stress aiding restful sleep. It really was love at first use.

byterry baume de rose

I have wanted to try the ByTerry baume de rose for ever but I could not bare to give £39 for a 30g lip balm, I just find it too excessive. But when I saw that they were selling a mini version as part of their Christmas collection I knew it was my opportunity to try it. I have not been let down by it, it's a true cult classic and for good reason. It’s deeply nourishing without felling too heavy or sloppy, it also works wonders under lipstick. I love using it at night and waking up to baby soft lips by morning.

 During the day a like to top-up using the Malin+Goetz Lip Moisturizer. The packaging is more practical for on-the-go application. I love how soothing it is when applied to dry lips, the formula contains fatty acids which nourish and protect the lips.

dermalogica daily superfoliant

As I mentioned before my skin has started to feel quite dry, therefore I have reintroduced exfoliators to my skincare routine. Currently, I am using the Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant and TheOrdinary Lactic Acid 5% + 2%HA. They are completely different but both really good. The Dermalogica daily superfoliant is a physical exfoliator, it has a unique formula as it is a powder that turns into a paste on contact with water. It has tiny grains that dissolve once you start rubbing it into your skin. Its very mild and great for daily use.
The ordinary Lactic Acid is a chemical exfoliator, as any regular exfoliator it gets rid of dead cells and improves skin texture but if you do use lactic acid be sure to use and SPF the next day as it does leave your skin vulnerable to sun damage.

I have also swapped my trusty micellar water for balm cleansers as I feel it's less drying on the skin and a bit more nourishing. My favourite one at the moment is the EmmaHardie Moringa Cleansing Balm but I have recently received a mini version of the cult classic Eve LomCleanser and will start using it tonight.

Dry body oils have become a thing of the past for me and I have started using rich body creams again. My absolute fave it the RitualsSakura Body Cream, I just love the amazing scent and how soft it leaves my skin. I have yet to try a body cream that I love more.

Let me know what skincare products you´re introducing into your routine to battle these cold days.

  1. Amazing products! I need to try them out :)

  2. I have heard such great things about the By Terry lip balm I can't believe I haven't tried it yet!

  3. Totally agree about not being able to part with the cash for a full-sized Baum de Rose! I know it's beautiful and I've tried a little sample of it before, but that's just too much money when I know there are other lip balms that work perfectly that are much more affordable. It doesn't stop me from wanting it though, haha. I might have to eventually pick up a mini for myself one day.

  4. The Ordinary is one brand I have discovered this year and I love their products, they work so great!

  5. Such a pretty blog and love this post - must try the ordinary brand sounds amazing!

  10. I need to follow your lead, and now that it's winter break I have no excuse to not find products that will work on my dry winter skin. I'll defintely look into that lipbalm although my lips love the Burts and Bees honey lip alm which is super great in the winter. Great post and happy New Year.
