My Winter Warriors

My Winter Warriors
As soon as the UK gets a little bit chillier I like to up my skincare routine and use products a lot more. It can be quite difficult to take care of your skin in the winter, I find especially with all the mad Christmas shop rushes. Today I wanted to share with you all My Winter Warriors, these essentially help battle off any imperfections that the weather could be causing.

Clinique All About Eye Serum* | My eyes suffer the most in winter, they get dry, dark and sometimes I look dead. I have been using an eye serum instead of an eye gel/cream every evening before bed. This de-puffing massage roller helps massage away any dark circles, refreshes and hydrates my eyes. I always find my eyes look a lot more fresh and awake when I have used this, definitely a one to try if you suffer with dark eyes.

L'Occitane Repairing Mask* | As well as upping my skincare I do like to take extra care of my hair too. At the moment I am using the L'Occitane Repair Mask and I leave this on for 5 minutes. This mask is recommended for coloured hair, which is perfect for me as I dye my hair quite often. My hair is always left feeling soft, shiny and a lot more healthier, I personally love this mask it is definitely worth the splurge in winter for taming those locks.

Origin's GinZing Moisturizer | This fruity scented moisturizer is a bliss for my skin and is so worth the crazy amount of money. I have used this moisturizer for a good year now and I can really see a difference in my skin. I have oily skin, but I do occasionally get dryness - especially in winter. This is somewhere between a gel and a cream, it's lightweight and full of ingredients to perk your skin up (coffee beans). I definitely think my skin looks a lot more awake and fresh when I apply this. It always leaves my face feeling very hydrated and ready for the day!

Jurlique Moisturizing Cream Mask* | I am forever trying new masks out on my skin - it seems to be a bit of a hobby! This cream mask is rich, deeply hydrating and leaves your skin feeling radiant and smooth. Even though I have oily skin, using a creamy hydrating face mask once a week really locks in and gives my skin all the health it needs. This mask smells very rosy and is perfect to sit in the bath with for 10 minutes whilst relaxing back. This definitely is worth trying if you want to lock moisture in your skin to avoid any dryness!

Trilogy Rosehip Lip Balm* | My lips never usually feel the cold, but unfortunately this year they have suffered a lot! I always like to use lip products that contain no patroluem jelly and are natural if possible. I have been using Trilogy Oil Lip Balm for a week or so now and this always leaves my lips feeling smooth and protects them from any dry or soreness. Containing jojoba to soothe, cocoa and shea butter to deliver nutrients and cooling peppermint oil adding a gentle zing.

Dove Derma Spa Intensive Hand Cream | I always like to pop a hand cream in my bag with me no matter where I go. I think by going to the gym, Christmas shopping and an overload amount of baths, my hands need a lot more TLC. I use this hand cream by Dove and it smells so lovely and rosy. I don't really have a routine with this, I use it whenever I get the chance and it keeps my hands from cracking and drying. The best thing about this cream is my hands are never left feeling greasy or sticky.

Origin's Super Spot Remover | This spot treatment always seems to creep its way onto my blog around this time of the year, which speaks for itself really. Whenever it gets colder my skin tends to suffer with a few nasty spots. I like to pop this miracle worker over any spot and this will clear up the spot as well as the redness surrounding. A little goes a long way with this treatment.

Those are My Winter Warriors that I cannot be without during the cold season and always help fight off any imperfection on my skin and hair.

What are your Winter Warriors??

  1. There's nothing worse than breaking out when your skin gets drier! I've been doing a lot of honey face masks because they keep moisture in the skin and just loads of lipbalm because my lips get so chapped in winter!
