My Most Used This Winter

I don’t know about you but, I feel like this winter is lasting for ever! I am so over the cold and the short days, all I can think about is spring, wearing less layers and not freezing to death every time I leave the house.

As we are currently on the last stretch, finally, I thought it would be a good idea to sit back and share with you my most used beauty products this winter.

Face Oils. I am a big fan of face oils and use them all year round. I have a few that I use on rotation and the ones that I have been grabbing more are the Sarah Chapman Morning Facial, the Sarah Chapman Overnight Facial and the Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil. The main reason why a favour these is because they have a richer consistency and feel more nourishing on the skin. If you still haven’t tried face oils then you are missing out, they are incredibly nourishing, fast absorbing and much better than moisturisers. They are also amazing all skin types, including oily.  

Hyaluronic acid. During December my forehead became extremely dry and I was finding it quite hard to keep the area hydrated. Luckily I found the benefits of using a hyaluronic acid serum and have never looked back. If you want to find out more about hyaluronic acid you can read “Powerful Hydration Combo For Winter Skin. I have been using the Dr Sebagh Serum Repair and it is amazing as it instantly absorbs into the skin and feels like you are wearing nothing. If you are on a budget I would recommend the Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% +B5 as its really good and only a fraction of the price. 

Oil cleansers. I have a whole variety of different cleansers at home. The one I favoured most to take of my makeup was the Micellar water from Bioderma, it’s just to quick easy and convenient. I still love it and it’s by far one of my favourites but this winter I have started using oil cleanser a bit more. Not only are they amazing at taking your makeup off, but also they are more nourishing and less drying. The two that I have reached for the most are the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil and the Votary Cleansing Oil. To be honest I think I slightly prefer the Votary one, as it is thicker and easier to use.

Dewy Base. If your face is suffering from the harsh cold, I think that the worst thing you can do is slather a high coverage matte foundation. Not only will it make your skin look extremely dry but it will also show by caking or cracking. I have been loving using light dewy foundations, they have really brought back light into my face. My favourite one by far is the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation although I kind of hate how pricey it is. The Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint is also incredibly dewy, probably the most, but it basically has no coverage, I love layering it under foundation.

Lip balms. What would be do without lip balms? I must have gone through a dozen this winter alone. If I had to choose a favourite, to my surprise, I think I would choose the Malin+Goetz Lip Mousturizer. There is something about the formula that I really love. It´s nourishing without it being to heavy or sticky, it´s also not to thin that it disappears within the hour and it´s basically the only one that I have used overnight and woken up to baby soft lips.

Hand Cream. I never used to be bothered by hand cream. I would always have one by my bedside table but never really used them until this winter. This winter has been crazy on my skin. I love using the Byredo Bal D´afrique hand cream at night, I never thought I would own a luxury hand cream but I received this one in my Christmas beauty calendar and totally fell in love. It is rich and nourishing and has a lovely scent. During the day, I normally use the Ritual´s Ritual of Sakura hand balm. Its not a rich but I think I prefer that during the day, it also has SPF 15 which is an added bonus and it smells divine.

  1. I've sworn by lip balms this Winter and have had three different ones on rotation! My hands have also been super dry and I've been having to use creams with no fragrance or anything in them xo

  4. I love the look of the Byredo hand creams but haven't been able to convince myself to buy one since they're so pricey! I use a lot of hand cream because I feel like during the day I just apply it and wash it off again, so if I'm investing in a nice hand cream then I'll tend to keep it by my bedside so I get the most enjoyment out of it, and don't run out as quickly!

  5. There are so many products here that I really want to try. I am going to have to invest in some Glossier sooner or later!

  8. All of these products are gorgeous! Byredo make my favorite perfume (reeeaaaally want to get the hand cream, but as someone else said above, PRICE, ugh), and I am in desperate need of a new face oil, so clearly I clicked through all of your suggestions!

    For lip balms, I SWEAR by Kiehls Number 1 (in any flavor). I first tried it after reading it in a magazine, recommended by Gwyneth Paltrow (ugh, can't believe I just wrote that). She wasn't kidding. It's the best. Have used nothing ever since.
