Blogmas Day Six: Winter Skincare Routine

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Six! Today I’m going to be showing you guys my winter skincare routine. I’ve done a couple of these posts before, I did one last winter and I’ll link that down below. I have two different routines that I’ve been doing, so I’ll go through them both. And I’ll also leave links for all of the products that I mention, so let’s get into it.

So, there are two things that I always use no matter what, and the first is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. I really like this, it has a gentle formula and you don’t have to scrub to get your makeup off. I put this on a cotton pad, swipe it over my eyes/lips and that’s it. Super easy and effective.

My next step is to remove the rest of my makeup, and for that I use the Tarte Rainforest of The Sea Deep Dive Cleansing Gel. With this, you put some in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together until it gets foamy and then you put it on your face. It takes off everything and leaves your skin feeling really good.

Next, I use the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. You put this on before any serums and moisturizers and it removes any dead skin cells, so those serums and moisturizers can really sink into your skin and do what they’re supposed to do. And I just put this on a cotton pad and wipe it over my entire face.

Since it’s winter and the cold can be so harsh on the skin, I’ve been using serums. I don’t always use a serum, but I think that’s probably going to change after this winter. This one is the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. This helps to even out your skin tone and it brightens, which I really appreciate this time of year.

I follow the serum with my moisturizer and that is the Lancôme Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Face Cream. I like this a lot, the formulation is cool because it goes from a cream and transitions into a water gel. It makes my skin feel really soft and hydrated.

The second to last thing I do is put on eye cream and for that I use the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is probably my favorite eye cream that I’ve used and I swear by it.

FSP3

And the last thing I do, which I do right before I go the bed, is put on a lip product. I rotate between two products, it was three but I ran out of one and haven’t repurchased yet. But the two that I rotate between is Vanilla Softlips, which I’ve been using for years and Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. The Bite Beauty Lip Mask I’ve been loving for almost a year, it’s so moisturizing and makes my lips feel so soft.

On to the second routine that I’ve been doing, the first couple steps are the same.

So, for this routine one thing that’s different is the serum that I use. I’ve been using the Olehenriksen Truth Serum. This has Vitamin C along with orange and green tea extracts and aloe juice. It’s incredibly hydrating and brightens your skin. It also smells really good. It smells just like these Vitamin C tablets my parents would buy when I was a kid, so there’s some nostalgia there.

The next step, moisturizing, is also different. The moisturizer I use here is the Dr. Dennis Gross C+ Collagen Deep Cream. This has a little bit of a thicker consistency, but it’s quick absorbing and very hydrating.

AGSP9

The eye cream and the lip products are the same as the first routine.

Something I also make sure to really do during winter is moisturize my hands and the rest of my body. The cold can be harsh on the skin so moisturizing is extra important. What I’m using is the Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar 24 Hour Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream. I keep this big one on my nightstand and I have a small one in my handbag. I also have in my handbag a small Jergens Ultra Healing lotion, I don’t have a picture of that one. It has vitamins C, E and B5. It’s a great lotion to have around.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we use any of the same products let me know and if not I’d love to know what you do use.

Until next time, you can never have too many moisturizers and I can’t believe we’re halfway through Blogmas :).
