My Winter Skincare Routine

09:09 Unknown 0 Comments

Since writing my last post on my skincare routine, mostly all of it has changed so I thought it was time to create another post involving my autumn/winter skin regime. My skin is dry and sensitive so I do have to be careful with what I use but all these products have definitely been agreeing with my skin.

To prep and cleanse the skin, I've recently started using Liz Earle's famous cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser which has been working a treat removing my makeup. However, I've also been loving Clinique's take the day off balm which I've also been loving to remove my makeup. This is a little better to remove makeup when you've been wearing a lot as it really breaks down your makeup and removes instantly without having to go back in to remove with cleansing water. As usual, I'm still loving Neutrogena's pink grapefruit cleansing duo which this has to be the 5th round of these! They just make by skin so clear and fresh.

To tone the skin I've been using the Vitamin E toning mist from Superdrug which has been giving me a quick hydration before applying my Avene Hydrance serum which I've only just recently bought as had my eye on it for a while. This is very light and feels very hydrating on the skin the only downfall is the price mark is a little high for this small bottle, I managed to get it in Boots with some money off but thats the only thing that puts me off from buying it again. To moisturise my skin I've been using Garnier Moisture Bomb which has been pretty good for providing good moisture to my skin. I'm still using the Simple nourishing eye roll on and its good but nothing special can't seem to find a good eye cream at the moment. Lastly, the lip balm I'm using is Paw Paw Papaya moisturising balm which is also pretty good, it's also good for any small patches of dry skin on your body, I've been using it on some horrible dry patches on my hands and its been working a treat.

Lastly, I've been using a new mask from Liz Earle and this was a gift to me and I've been using this just on where I get blemishes so around my nose and chin. I've only used this a couple of times, this is quite strong so I'm only going to use it maybe once a month when I really need to clear those areas. as it is a deep cleansing mask. Also in the evenings instead of using a night cream I've been using coconut oil and this has been making my skin feel so soft at night and reducing the dry areas on my skin that I get this time of year.

What are your favourite winter skincare picks?
