My current winter beauty favourites

As winter slowly slips through our fingers I thought that I would take the time to compile a list of my top five beauty favourites that have used non-stop throughout this season. These are products that I would recommend to everyone and have served me well the last few chilly months. For me the key to beauty products during the winter is choosing items that will hydrate and moisturise your skin so that it doesn’t become dry and flaky from that harsh winter wind and will truly lock in the natural nourishing oil that your skin needs.

Nivea Soft face, body and hands moisturising cream
 This is without a doubt my favourite moisturiser that I have ever used. I never went to bed without applying this product and truly reaped the benefits from applying this religiously. This Nivea cream is a thicker formula than usual moisturisers so it was the perfect product to use at night so it could repair my skin from the harsh weather. It has Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E present as a few of the main ingredients which not only hydrates but also protects your skin from sun damage, it really is a product that has it all. Lastly before I move on I also just have to mention the incredible price, its only 6! Its an amazing product and an amazing price which you can buy here.

Neutrogena visibly clear 2-in-1 face wash and mask

This is a product that I actually use all year round but I felt that I needed to mention it because I think it is seriously underrated. My skin can break out quite easily and I am rarely spot free but I can say honestly that this product has helped my skin enormously. I don’t have as many breaks outs as I used to and has also calmed down the old blemish marks on my face as well. I adore this face wash for the fact that it can also be applied as a mask to unclog pores and purify your skin. You have everything that you would ever want in a cleanser in one product. It is a very gentle formula and doesn’t have an overpowering smell which a lot of face cleansers seem to have and unquestionably is my perfect face cleanser. Neutrogena is a brand that I think has one of the best skin cleansing lines and would highly recommend them. You can check out their skin care range here.

Oral-B 3D White Luxe

I have recently started using this product in the last few weeks and am annoyed that I didn’t start using it earlier! This product does exactly what it says on the tube and within two weeks I noticed a massive difference in my teeth. My teeth where so bright and white and had me wondering why it took me so long to hop on the band wagon. The formula has a minty fresh taste to it and it really feels like its deep cleaning your teeth while your brushing them. After using this product for a few weeks I can certainly say that I will continue to use this product and will become a necessity in my life. You can purchase it here and learn first-hand why this product has been raved about.

Max Factor pan stik

 The Max Factor pan stik is a relatively new item in my makeup collection but has integrated in so nicely to my routine. I have talked about in a previous blog post about my daily beauty regime and since this addition the routine has slightly changed. For a concealer I used to use the Rimmel match perfection and while I did love that product there was the annoyance of the nozzle always getting blocked with the product. After finishing it I was in the market for trying something new when I stumbled across this product.  This product is a foundation but I have been using it as a concealer for the fact that it has such a creamy formula which makes it the perfect consistency as a concealer for me. I have this product in the shade 12 true beige and is amazing for covering all my blemishes and dark under eye circles. Max Factor is not a brand I would normally choose but after using this product I will definitely be on the lookout for more of their makeup products in the future. I will leave a link here if you want to try this wonderful product.

St. Tropez gradual tan

To finish off, I have to acknowledge this infamous brand. Again this was a product that had so much hype around it but I never really gave in and bought it. I am so glad that I finally took the leap and listened to all the adoring reviews and have completely converted to using this product above any others. The winter not only dries out my skin but takes away any of the healthy glow that I gained over the summer leaving me looking tired and drained. This formula not only adds a touch of streak less glow to my skin but it also nourishes and hydrates my skin and can easily be used in replacement of a typical after shower moisturiser. Using any kind of tanning product can so easily go amiss yet with this product I have yet to have a tanning disaster. It’s a formula that in my experience has never looked patchy and can effortlessly build up that summer glow that we all, especially me have been yearning for. I will leave a link here where you can try this indisputable for yourself. 

I would love to know what your favourite beauty products have been for this winter season in the comments down below and what product you think lived up to the hype.
