Autymn/Winter Skincare Favourites

winter skincare favourites
Hi Flamingos
For me skincare is a very important part of my routine all year round but in the Autumn and Winter months I do tend to take my skincare regime for seriously for quite a few reasons. Reason one is the awful weather is just naff to be honest and taking care  of my skin helps me relax and feel pampered. Reason two is for some reason my skin gets drier in the colder months so I like to take that little bit extra care of it. Below I have posted my favorite products and a few extra things that help keep my skin looking fabulous all year round.

Superdrug Vitamin E Cream 
This cream has to be one of my favorite face moisturizers and even though is one of the cheapest choice on the market its as good as a more expensive cream in my opinion as it keeps my skin smooth all year round and autumn and winter are no exception. The cream itself is non greasy and soaks into the skin quickly too which is fabulous for when your in a rush in the mornings like I usually am as a mum of 3.

Soap & Glory Heal Genius 
I just can't get enough of this cream as keeps my feet smelling like peppermint and of course very smooth. I have used this for a while now every night and since I started using this my feet have had a lot less dry skin and less need for me to use my ped egg on my feet. I walk a lot as I don't drive so a good foot cream is a must for me.

Nip + Fab Kale Fix Clay Mask 
I don't always use a face mask but I tend to use them more in the colder months as the colder elements on my face can make an impact on my skin so for a treat I use this mask twice a week. Nip + Fab Kale fix mask is a gorgeous treat and I simply apply it to my skin like a moisturizer and leave it on my skin for 15 minutes and wash it off with warm water and dry with a hand towel and after my skin feels very soft and I almost look like I have a glow.

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
All year round I like to use a moisturiser but during the colder months I tend to go for this cocoa butter because this formula is a lot thicker then other body moisturisers I have and I think its soaks better in the skin in the colder months. I use this every evening to help keep my skin feeling soft and to help reduce my stretchmark's which it does a fabulous job at.

Soap & Glory Hand Food
This is the one cream that I carry around with me everywhere! my hands are something that are super important to me and I like to keep them in tip top condition and hand food is just perfect for that as it smells like marshmallows and shea butter and keeps my hands soft all year round. I used to get dry hands in the winter but no more now as I have used this for years and that has become a thing of the past thankfully.
What are your winter skincare favourites?

  1. I too love a vitamin E face cream, I'm currently using the body shop one and I also love a clay mask during the winter time! I've been wanting to try hand food for ages and I get terribly dry skin so I think this will be on my next boots order!

  2. Gotta love a bit of S&G! The Nip & Fab mask sounds really interesting - have used their skincare in the past and liked it so I'm tempted to go and pick one of these up. I'm not a fan of kale in my mouth, but maybe on my face it'll be more my thing? :D

  5. I love the Palmers cocoa butter too, it's so intensely moisturising and exactly what's needed this time of year.
