Skincare That’s Saving My Skin This Winter

I don’t know about you, but my skin tends to freak out as soon as the weather changes. This year, I was prepared and armed with lots of skincare goodies to rescue my skin. I have dry skin throughout the year, so as you can probably imagine, it gets even worse in Winter. However with the help of these skincare gems, I’m managing to keep my skin under control.

All of these products are cruelty free and the majority are vegan as far as I’m aware, but please do your own research to double check!

LUSH BUCHE DE NOEL CLEANSER

I actually got to make this cleanser myself at a Lush Christmas event which I think makes it even more special! Buche de Noel is a fresh cleanser full of natural ingredients. The ground almonds in the cleanser help to gently exfoliate your skin without irritating it. I love using this after I’ve removed my make up for a final cleanse.

THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN E NIGHT CREAM

I don’t have too much to say for this night cream – try it for yourself and it will do the talking! It’s my go to moisturiser for night time. It’s a really hydrating and rich moisturiser, but it doesn’t feel heavy on your skin.

COCONUT OIL

This is something I use throughout the year regardless of the weather, but it’s even more beneficial in Winter. Retailing at about £3 a tub in most supermarkets, this is definitely the most affordable skincare item I have in my collection. It lasts ages, and it’s a complete dream for taking off your make up.

SUPERDRUG VITAMIN E HOT CLOTH CLEANSER

Everyone and their mum has heard of the Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser, but this little Superdrug number is a fraction of the price and works just as well! It’s great at removing your make up and it’s really moisturising so it won’t strip your skin.

THE BODY SHOP VITAMIN C SKIN BOOSTER

This little serum works wonders on my dry skin! I love popping it on before my moisturiser in the morning. It’s great for adding a bit of glow back into your skin in the colder months. I’m basically the colour of a ghost, but at least I’m a glowy ghost… right?

GLOSSIER BALM DOT COM

My lips get ridiculously dry in winter, and this is my saving grace. Glossier’s Balm Dot Com is really  versatile! Although I mainly use it for chapped lips, it also works on any other stubborn bits of dry skin you might have. I’ve always got mine in my bag in case I need it throughout the day.

THE BODY SHOP PEPPERMINT CANDY CANE

Don’t be too surprised if you catch me smelling like a candy cane over the next couple of months, because I am obsessed. I’ve been slathering on the body lotion when I come out the shower, and I carry the hand cream around with me daily. They’re both incredibly hydrating and don’t take forever and a day to dry in to your skin which is something I always look for in a product. If you fancy smelling minty fresh this Winter then you can’t go wrong with this range.

Are there any products you’re constantly reaching for this Winter? Let me know! I’m always on the look out for new skincare to try.

  1. The Balm Dot Com has been my absolute holy grail over the last few weeks! My lips would have cracked off by now without it. I’m off into town today so I’ll pop into Lush and The Body Shop to have a peek are your recommendations, my skin definitely needs its glow back!

  2. Definitely going to replace my Vanilla Pumpkin hand cream with the candy cane variety tomorrow… it seems more seasonally appropriate (plus I’m due a new one!). I’ve been using the Body Shop’s Vitamin E eye cream too, so it’s good to know that the moisturiser is just as good.

    1. I bought the Vanilla Pumpkin hand cream before Halloween, and I’m very sad mine is nearly finished. I think the Candy Cane might be my favourite though so I better stock up on it before it goes! x
