Winter Skin Care Essentials

Heyyyy gorgeous people, I must publicly apologise for my absence this week.. I usually post three times a week as you might know, however this week there will be a post going up this weekend rather than just in the weekdays, so there will still be another post this week don't worry!

I'm going to spend this weekend doing lots of blog related things like writing and taking photos, it's just been so hectic at uni, I definitely underestimated third year! Anyway, enough of my rambling, today i'm going to talk about my Winter skin care essentials. This isn't going to be so much of a brand review, it's just an overview of the products I use the most and what saves my skin during the Winter months. 



First up, I absolutely love a good face mask all year round, however I feel like during the Winter months my skin just needs a bit more care and attention so I find myself using masks a lot more. This one from Lush is amazing as it acts as an exfoliator too, and you can use it all over your body which is a bonus! I usually do a mask at least once a week!

The next product i'd definitely recommend is a good facial scrub. I tend to get very dry skin during Winter, especially around my nose and chin so exfoliating regularly just gets rid of all the dead, dry skin and keeps me looking healthy and hydrated. I love this one by Botanics as it's super strong and has immediate results.  



Moisturiser is an absolute essential during the cold seasons, I always find that the cold and the wind really dry my skin out, so lathering myself in moisturiser just keeps my skin looking fresh and hydrated. I also find that using a moisturiser helps to make your makeup look flawless as it doesn't have that dry, flakey look to it. I personally adore this one by Botanics as it absorbs super quickly, doesn't leave me red or patchy and doesn't have an overpowering scent. 

Now, this is a relatively new product to me but honestly, I've used it once and i'm already SO excited to use it again. It's by Botanics and it's a face mask, but more of an exfoliating one. It's like a sand texture and the results are immediate which I love. It just made my skin super soft, fresh and it looked so much brighter once i'd used it. I wouldn't necessarily say this is a Winter essential as I know this is something i'll be loving all-year round. 


Of course how could I leave out my beloved toning spritz by Botanics. I love this product as I just feel that it hydrates my skin so well and helps to get rid of any left over dirt and pollution on your skin. I love using this as part of my morning and night skincare routine.

I think it's super important to keep your whole body super nourished and hydrated throughout Winter, so investing in a nice body lotion will keep your skin feeling soft and healthy. I love this one by Lush as it has a gorgeous Lavender scent to it, it absorbs really quickly and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I don't use this for my face though as it is quite heavily fragranced!




One thing in the last photo which I haven't mentioned is my new brightening eye roll-on. I'm not sure yet as to what the effects are buuut I absolutely love the way it feels, it definitely makes my under eyes feel very refreshed. I know I do a lot of skin care posts but i'm just in such a good place with my skin I love sharing what works for me in case anyone else is struggling. 

I always find that my skin needs a little more TLC during the colder months, due to the fact that my face is exposed to harsh winds and differing temperatures. Most of these products are one's which I use daily, apart from the face masks which I tend to use a couple of times a week.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, let me know what your Winter skin care saviours are!
