Welcome to Blogmas Day 9! Today I’m going to be talking about my winter skincare routine and some of my must haves for this time of year. Winter can be rough on the skin so it’s important to go that extra mile and take care of yourself. I will leave links below for everything that I mention. And full disclose all pictures I use will be of the mini versions that came from Glam Bags and whatnot and not the full size versions I’m using now.
To take off my makeup I use the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. This stuff is really fantastic and takes off all of your makeup. Put one pump of it into your hands and rub your hands together until it gets foamy then put on your face.
After I take off my makeup I cleanse my face and for that I use the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay. It unclogs pores, purifies skin and removes excess oils. I don’t have particularly oily skin, but since using this I have seen a definite difference in my skin and I’m really happy with it.
When it comes time to moisturize, I turn to a product I’ve been loving for many months and that is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer. I cannot even tell you how much I love this. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a new moisturizer.
The last part of my routine is to moisturize my lips. I mentioned in my favorites last month that I’ve been alternating between two products and those are the SKYN ICELAND Berry Lip Fix with Wintered Red Algae and the Vanilla Softlips. I wear a lot of lipsticks and different lip products so I’ve always tried to take extra care of my lips and I’ve been using the Softlips for quite a while. The SKYN ICELAND is a newer addition and it’s one of those things that I can’t believe I haven’t been using since the beginning. Just a fantastic product. Both of them are.
Now on to the must haves section of this post, one thing I cannot live without during the winter is lotion. I have two absolute favorites for this and they are the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream and the Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar 24 hour moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream. I’ve talked a lot about the Ultra Repair Cream recently so you guys know how much I love it. I have one that I keep in my handbag and one that I keep with my other products and it really has made a difference. The Bath and Body Works Body Cream I’ve been using since last December, it’s one of the things that keeps my skin soft and hydrated all year and it’s one of my all time favorite scents. I like that even though it is a thicker cream it feels light and sinks into the skin quickly and the Shea Butter is a major plus.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys use any of the same products in your skincare routine let me know and if not I’d love to know what you do use.
Until next time, I hope you’re enjoying Blogmas and here’s to soft and hydrated skin this winter :).
