I know, I know, I don’t actually need anymore skincare, but I love to keep trying and discovering new things – especially in winter when my skin needs extra pampering. I was telling L’Occitane how much I wanted to try their Shea Ultra Rich Comforting Face Cream and they asked me to share that with you, along with all the other skincare products currently on my wishlist for this winter.
In winter our skin really gets affected by the cold weather outside and the increase in central heating inside, so it requires a lot of extra hydration and soothing. A perfect face cream for this is the L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Comforting Face Cream – it has 25% Shea Butter and offers 72 hour moisturisation.
The Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil (£85 from Space NK) has become a bit of a cult product in the beauty vlogging and blogging worlds. It’s blue and it’s a retinol. It’s designed to reduce pore size, reduce lines and wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. You MUST wear an SPF during the day when you are using this at night, as retinols make your skin more sensitive to the sun and UV rays (which are still very much present in winter). I want to try this oil for a few nights per week and then this more hydrating one to use on the rest of the nights – the Emma Hardie Brilliance Facial Oil (£34 from Space NK) – as it also restores elasticity and contains antioxidents as well as comforting and moisturising the skin.
I absolutely love the Burts Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser (£11.49 from Burts Bees), so I really want to try their Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser (also £11.49) too, as i’ve heard it makes your skin so soft. The ingredients are 99% natural and it’s designed or dry skin – ideal for winter use.
I’m not a huge fan or hardening clay masks, but I love the pricey Glam Glow Youth Mud. I’ve heard that The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask (£15 from The Body Shop) is an amazing dupe, right down to the bit-y texture. I need to try this as Glam Glow is always sold out. I don’t use deep cleansing masks like these all the time, but when my skin feels clogged up and I get a breakout, these are great.
Finally, I really want to test out the Estée Lauder Stress Relief Eye Masks (£28 for 10 from Feel Unique) as my eyes always look so tired because i’m on the computer all the time. These masks are supposed to be really hydrating and make you look more rested.
Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?
