As the winter is in full swing I have been making a massive effort with my skincare over the past month or so. I usually suffer from quite bad dry patches on my face due to the harsh winds completely drying my face out and leaving it rough. As soon as I felt it getting colder I stepped up my skincare routine and it really has made a massive difference to the appearance of my skin.
Antipodes Rejoice Light Facial Day Cream | £27 | I don't think I can rave about this product any more than I have done in the past two months. It has made both my October and November favourites so I won't go on too much, and you can read a more detailed review here. This daily face cream has become a holy grail for me though, it's thick and really settles into the skin which is perfect to keep the skin moisturised all day and prevent the weather taking its toll.
Burts Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream | £20 | Burts Bees are a brand that are quite new to me, and this is the first night cream that I've tried so I wasn't sure what to expect when I first tried this. It's a very thick product, that can take a little bit of working into the skin but it is so worth it. Once it has settled into the skin it leaves it silky smooth and moisturised all night. It creates a perfect base overnight, so you can apply your makeup straight onto it in the morning without having to do other skincare prep if you're in a rush, or you're lazy like me.
The Body Shop Camomille Butter Cleanser | £13 | I recently switched up my cleansers and decided to use a different product to my usual Ark Skincare Cleanser. This was probably the best thing that I've changed up in my skincare routine, I am really loving the thick butter formula at the moment. It's a brilliant cleanser and removes absolutely anything, including stubborn waterproof mascaras! I love how luxurious it feels to massage a butter cleanser into your skin, especially during the drier skin months. If my skin ever feels like a baby's bottom, it's definitely after using this.
Lush Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub | £14.25 for 250g | A Lush product in one of my posts, that's quite a rare occasion don't you think?! I'm having withdrawal symptoms so I just had to include my favourite face scrub. I don't think anything will ever top this scrub, it restores my skin to a healthy and smooth state, which makes my makeup apply more flawlessly as the dry patches my foundation normally cling to are reduced and barely noticeable at all. It also smells incredible, I really do just sit here smelling it sometimes. I may be a little bit obsessed, which would probably explain why I currently have three tubs of this on the go...
