I’m still tweaking my winter skincare to find the best solutions for my skin. Typically, I have slightly oily skin in summer and dry skin in winter. I’m still researching for the best products that will moisturize, help me retain moisture, but also not irritate or break out my often sensitive skin. Tall order. For now, these are the products I’m currently using for morning skincare.
OLO Brand New Day with Manuka Honey – a couple of times a week, I use these two products and apply them as a mask to my face before I hop in the shower. I’ve mentioned how much I enjoy this mask in a past post.
HollyBeth Organics Chamomile Cleanser – I’ve also been using this in the mornings for a few months now. This cleanser is great – very affordable, gentle, but still makes my skin feel clean and prepped for other products.
Root Science RS Youth Serum – This serum is so nice – I love the smell, the ingredients are fantastic, and I love the packaging. It’s pricey, though (I bought this during a sale). To make this bottle last longer, I’ve only been using this as my morning serum.
Laurel Eye Balm – Another pricey luxury that I picked up during a sale. At this point in my life, an eye balm is a necessity in winter (and year round, too). This one is really lovely, but I still cannot decide if I like it better than the ED OLO Active Moisture Vitamin E Eye Balm. Regardless, this is a truly great eye balm. It moisturizes so well without irritating my eyes at all.
Blissoma A+ Perfecting Serum – This was a sample and I really enjoy this. Typically, my skin is in good shape, but I always deal with periods of time where my skin is a bit irritated or has a couple of pimples. I don’t know how I would feel about its effectiveness if I bought the full-size – I may purchase just to get a better idea of how well I like it.
Gemstone Organic Jade Creme – This stuff is fantastic. I’m almost out of this thick, moisturizing, fragrant cream. I really want to pick up their Ruby Creme, as it doesn’t contain coconut oil and I’m paranoid that too many products with coconut oil will start to affect my skin. The Ruby Creme sounds amazing.
Nourish Organic Fresh Fig Body Butter – Possibly my favorite body butter ever. For me, this scent is heaven. I am euphoric every time I open this jar to put some on my skin. It smells so good, that I can’t even put it into words. And as far as moisturizing, it does a wonderful job. I usually deal with really dry skin on my shins, but this butter is so good that no matter how cold it is outside, my skin is soft and hydrated. My one tiny gripe is that it does seem to take a little longer to absorb into my skin than other products, but I’ll deal with it. And for the price, this stuff is just phenomenal.
Do you use any of these products? Do you have any recommendations for products to help deal with sensitive, dry winter skin?
